Unboxing the Hidizs AP80 Digital Audio Player

Unboxing the Hidizs AP80 Digital Audio Player

Hi everyone,

Yesterday, I received the Hidizs AP80 Digital Audio Player from their [kickstarter campaign](https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/873263862/hidizs-ap80-next-generation-ultraportable-hifi-mus). After that, I received a tracking number which is of no use because of course, I already have the unit here and it shows as “Delivered”, so it came as a surprise and was shipped by Amazon since they fullfill US orders from them.

So, here’s my unboxing video that I recorded of this tiny (smaller than I expected) audio player. Enjoy!

Hi everyone, Yesterday, I released rav1e_gui v1.1. This build adds 2 new options which are related to my contribution toward the rav1e project I talked in this post. The Pull Request got accepted, so every rav1e builds coming forward will have these 2 new options: Keyframe Interval – Allows you to specify a keyframe interval. Before, it was locked to one keyframe per 30 frames, but now the user can choose this interval by using the –keyint or -I flags….

Contributing to the rav1e AV1 encoder software

Contributing to the rav1e AV1 encoder software

Hi everyone, Yesterday I had my first experience writing code in Rust. I decided to implement 2 command-line options for the rav1e AV1 encoder software that I’ve been playing around for some days. The encoder currently encodes files with a keyframe every 30 frames. This value is hardcoded into the code and can’t be changed by the user unless it is changed at the code and rav1e is compiled again. Also, there is a new option which is called “Compound…

Hi everyone, Today, I’ve compiled the latest rav1e source code, bringing it to commit 6bfa0aa: I’m releasing 2 versions of today’s build.
