Hi everyone,

I present to you today IPFS Local Explorer:


I started coding this software yesterday, in order to work with my local IPFS storage node. It allows file upload, creating new folders, removing content, and opening the files and folders on an IPFS Gateway. It's very simple, actually, and the best part is that it's open source!

Hi everyone,

Today, I'll show you the steps to download ffmpeg in your Windows machine. This is needed for tools like rav1e_gui, which uses ffmpeg to pre-process and post-process video files when encoding them to the new AV1 video format.

Below are the steps:

  1. Navigate to

This version brings the changes performed up to today's commit, but I also upped the Speex Resampler quality from 5 to 10, as you can see in the following image:

New opusenc.exe build with a bug fix regarding the output filename

Hi everyone,

Today, I fixed a bug in my opusenc code regarding the output filename when it is not provided.

The issue was that if a file didn't had an extension, then the output string would be empty, so in reality, the encoded file would not be stored. This has been fixed in my latest commits still awaiting approval to be merged into the official opusenc GitHub repository.

The new updated code is the following:

Hi everyone,

Today, I've released Opus GUI v1.3:

This build brings an option to enable or disable multithreading and also allows you to encode files to the same input folder by leaving the output textbox blank. This is in part, thanks to a few commits I've performed today and currently awaiting a Pull Request approval to merge these commits into the opus-tools repo.
