    I switched over to Windows today for a Zoom call. Before I did so, I installed the utility application from Logitech to control my camera (a C900, I believe). That allows me to pan the camera and...

  10. Re: Nextcloud, Apache & Letsencrypt in Ubuntu 18.04 server

    NIce. My servers run CentOS 6 so they're not using systemd. At the time I created them at Linode I didn't want to deal with that, so I stayed on an earlier release.

    Are you building a server with WOL? My servers are always available 24/7. To my mind, that's part of the definition of a "server." Usually WOL is a client-side technology.

    [ubuntu] Re: VLC doesn't play V_AV1 codec video

    To pass parameters like "-vd codec" to mpv in SMPlayer I believe you need to add them via Options > Advanced > Mplayer/mpv. I've never tried using them on the command line.
