Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Question Need help with a certain codec

I've got a video of which I can't figure out the audio codecs. I usually have all necessary codecs' installed (K-Lite codec Pack, lame-3.96.1, TFM Audio Filter - Movie Soundtrack Compressor/Channels Effect FREEWARE ver. 1.0 beta 8 and DivX 5.0). When looking up the codecs with GSpot there aren't any displayed, though I can play the movie -without sound. Opening the movie in my Media Classic Player I get following message (which is for me, to be honest, like Chinese backwards ):

Media Player could not render some of the pins in the graph, you may not have the needed codecs of filter installed on your system

Stream 0

Media Type 0:
--------------------------
AM_MEDIA_TYPE:
majortype: MEDIATYPE_Audio {73647561-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71}
subtype: Unknown GUID Name {00000075-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71}
formattype: FORMAT_WaveFormatEx {05589F81-C356-11CE-BF01-00AA0055595A}
bFixedSizeSamples: 1
bTemporalCompression: 0
lSampleSize: 128
cbFormat: 34

WAVEFORMATEX:
wFormatTag: 0x0075
nChannels: 1
nSamplesPerSec: 16000
nAvgBytesPerSec: 2000
nBlockAlign: 128
wBitsPerSample: 16
cbSize: 16 (extra bytes)

And when pushing the button that says 'search for codecs on the internet, I get following screen message:

Warning: mysql_connect(): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'mysql.sourceforge.net' (111) in /home/groups/g/gu/guliverkli/htdocs/codec.php on line 14

Warning: mysql_query(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/groups/g/gu/guliverkli/htdocs/codec.php on line 19

Warning: mysql_query(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/groups/g/gu/guliverkli/htdocs/codec.php on line 37
Sorry, we couldn't find any codec with that guid in our database, the good news is that we will investigate your submission and probably add it later.

Could anyone tell me what codecs I need and maybe where I can get a hand on it?
Something about my system, in case that would be of interest to help me:

XP Pro SP2
1.024 GB Ram
2.53 GHz Celron
Media Players installed:
Windows Media Player 10
Real Player 6.0.12.1235
Jet Audio 6, 2, 6, 8330
Quick Time Player 6.5.2
Media Player Classic 6, 4, 8, 4
WinAmp 5.0.0.8
VLC 0.8.4.0

So, that seems to be all what I could tell you for now. Any idea??
Thanks in advance for any effort of yours
Cheers
Mario

Thanks Aaron for your suggestion. I've just downloaded it and tried to play the movie. Unfortunately, no sound either. The only difference with the VLC player is that there is no error message poping up informing me about audio issues.

Guess I've to look further...........anyone else any idea

Ooops sorry

I see the word guliverkli in the WMP messages perhaps installing that player might help.

No problem pal; I'm glad you looked at it.
I tried and downloaded 'guliverkli', which seems to be a codecs package (quite a big one, so to say) and in the 'bin' folder of the rar file I found an .exe file which I installed (though I don't know where the installation went to). Then I tried to play the movie again with the VLC player, the MP Classic and with my Jet Audio player.
The results were the same (except that the MP Classic didn't even bother to show a picture, whereas the other 2 did), no sound. So, either I made something wrong with the installation of the guliverkli (actually a funny name) or that hasn't been the ultimate solution.
But, when playing the movie in the Jet Audio player, I got following error message:

File Info :
File Name : (name removed by myself to prevent any problems with the forum rules )
Duration : 0:45:49
File Type : ASF

Video Info :
Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V2, 320 x 240, 291 Kbps

Audio Info (** ERROR **):
Audio : Voxware MetaSound, Mono, 16KHz, 16 Kbps

Could that be a lead to the codecs I'll need??

Cheers
Mario

Sorry Mario I'm not a video expert


I would do a (google) search for the file extention + audio codec

or try this Voxware codec, it looks like that's your problem according to the last error message http://www.free-codecs.com/download/...udio_CoDec.htm
