You can also use a headset or external mic, though this requires restarting Firefox and setting AUDIODEVICE, AUDIORECDEVICE as appropriate.
If you have been seeing "iwm0: fatal firmware error" and such in the logs, upgrading to -current will hopefully fix this (with build date after June 30, 09:45h UTC).
And if you aren't seeing any issues then please try the next round of changes
I got Zoom's web client working on Firefox on #OpenBSD last night. You can fool Zoom's web server into thinking you're on Windows with the User Agent Switcher extension. Click the meeting link, and when the download of the Windows client starts, hit Cancel. Reload, thrash around a bit. Then Zoom's site will have pity on you and give you the web client link.
Make sure you've got the following sysctls set:
Also check permissions on /dev/video?
Do you use #sqlite3 and are frustrated by its lack of #manpages? OpenBSD's port (and maybe others by now) use https://github.com/kristapsdz/sqlite2mdoc to convert the sqlite3.h header documentation into mdoc, so we can enjoy our usual command-line environment without jumping to the on-line docs. With some prodding by a new contributor, I've just put out a new release that cleans up output and handles some new sqlite3 bits and pieces. Docs! Docs! Docs! Docs! Docs! Docs!
Also backed down the livestream bitrate, since the quality of video we are putting in didn’t justify the ghastly high default and the consequent CPU load.
Plugging everything into a different outlet also eliminates the noise. Suspecting a ground loop. The original outlet fixtures were installed upside down, which is triggering my suspicions.
And why would there be? Because I've just received a message constructed in a way that implies that blank text is an acceptable alternate rendering of the HTML content.
A tool I use for one of my jobs sends out multipart/alternative e-mails in which the text/plain part is completely blank. This is really unacceptable... if you're going to send just text/html, don't make a pretense of alternatives. As it is, when I open up the message in mutt, which I've configured to prefer text/plain, I see the headers and no text. And because "Content-Disposition: inline" is set for both parts, there are no visual cues to pull up the attachments.
Trying out an #owncast server. It’s very easy to set up. Great functionality. User-facing interface still a little rough, but adequate.
Linus Torvalds isn't always rude, and not all times he is rude are good, but this time, yeah, YOUGOLINUS!
Got a nastygram from #vultr about excessive CPU usage on my #minecraft server. The VPS was not compromised, and was in fact running their minecraft server image, and they wouldn't provide any troubleshooting support and kept threatening to shut the instance down. It seemed like the best solution was to back up the data and shut it down myself.
