another way to hate flash/adobe

yet another upgrade to an propietary extension , (h.264) they give you a little full screen but they keep the servers closed and small details and now the crashes will
be fully accelerated



# I am not in a position able to explain to you why we will not allow 3rd party streaming servers to stream H.264 video or AAC audio into the Flash Player. What I can tell you is that we do not allow this without proper licensing. Refer to Adobe's friendly Flash Media Server sales staff for more information.

old ubuntu breezy repository changed it's name

So just change the lines e.g. "archive.ubuntu.com ..." to "old-releases.ubuntu.com ..." in your /etc/apt/sources.list or using the GUI in Synaptic/Adept.

Seems like old Ubuntu repositories are gone [Archive] - Phoronix Forums

extracting mp3s from youtube's videos

install the unplug plugin for firefox

install mencoder
$sudo apt-get install mencoder

download the video with unplug (right click and choose the unplug from menu)
in my case i have this video
extract the mp3 from the flv (audio is MP3-encoded in the movie file)
ffmpeg -i doors_when_the_music_is_over.flv -vn -acodec copy doors_when_the_music_is_over.mp3


The audio codec "copy" tells ffmpeg to use the same codec for encoding as was
used for decoding. Also, since we're not overriding any of the other audio
parameters such as sample rate or bit rate, we should be retrieving the sound
track exactly as it was multiplexed into the movie file.
