Google Is the Only Search Engine That Works on Reddit Now Thanks to AI Deal
  • Yeah but we need non technical stuff too which i what i hate about the ui and stuff mot trying to be made simpler for non tech people to start using lemmy. I want doctors, lawyers, and casual people asking questions about everyday items and stuff so i can search “best sleep mask lemmy” or any product category and find good discussions. Would also help if lemmy.com was an instance instead of just redirecting to lemm.ee

  • What could be done to make PeerTube more popular?
  • Make it easy for creators to be paid, recruit services like nebula and means tv to use it as its backend, make the ui prettier than YouTube not just an orange copycat.

    And make it possible for people to set it up as a tiktok competitor focused on short videos with stitches and video replies easy which makes discussion and and creators explaining complex topics easy and straight to the point (which is why i use TikTok theres so much useful knowledge people teach without long intros and fluff like YouTube)

  • Easiest way to selfhost Linkwarden on my desktop?

    I want to use Linkwarden to backup websites I find but I can't afford a subscription right now. What's the easiest way to selfhost it on my desktop pc (windows) that will keep it updated and working without having to mess with it or do a bunch of command line stuff?

Can any of you help make archive torrents of roms from vimms lair and cdromance? They have hacks and translations that dont exist elsewhere and will probably be removed soon with ios emulation and retro handhelds bringing so much attention to roms and these sites

    PieFed development update, June 2024 - Peertube, Polls

    cross-posted from: https://piefed.social/post/128173

    > Here's some development highlights from the last 3 weeks and who contributed: > > ### Freamon ### > > Markdown parsing improvements and let us use a different variant of Markdown than Lemmy does. > Poll federation - Mastodon accounts can vote on PieFed polls, and receive votes from PieFed users for Polls they've posted into a local community. > PeerTube integration - New channels arrive with 10 recent videos, their player is embedded in the PieFed post, new posts are correctly restricted to channel owners, and arrive into PieFed automatically. > Manual post-retrieval from remote communities function > Improvements to federation that led to an 80% drop in the amount of spam cleanup work admins need to do (some post deletions on remote Lemmy instances weren’t being imported into PieFed properly). > > ### Rimu ### > > A minor dark mode improvement. > Made the Poll UI and database. > Made a start on federation with Pixelfed and Discourse. > An admin tool to list communities that need to be assigned to a topic. > Update translations from crowdin - French is finished thanks to wazaby. Steady progress continues on Japanese translation. > Much better topic list layout. > Imported many PeerTube channels into piefed.social and assigned them to topics. > Top-level topics added to the main menu under ‘Topics’. > Soft deletes - post deletion can be reversed for up to 7 days. > > ### Tallship ### > > Suggested PieFed use 'soft-break' Markdown > Testing User Follows from various platforms > Reporting that the use of Mastodon's trademark was problematic > > ### General comments ### > > We are reaching the end of the initial roadmap I sketched out 6 months ago at the start of development. There are just a handful of small tasks to do before the “beta test” phase ends. > > With Lemmy to PieFed federation pretty solid, we are entering a phase of diversifying to other platforms. The first other platform, PeerTube, involved a lot of work that hopefully paved the way for future platforms to be integrated more easily. Pixelfed is going live with Groups support very soon. Exploratory work has been done on integration with Discourse although disappointingly they have implemented federation as an optional plugin so fewer Discourse forums actually federate than I initially hoped. NodeBB looks interesting. > > In general the Fediverse has reached a steady state in terms of user numbers which gives us space to slow down and reassess. There is not as much of a sense of urgency or bursting-at-the-seams that there was a few months ago. This might be a good time to start to pay down some of the technical debt we have built up. It’s not that the code is bad, it's just that it’s structured in a way that made things easy in the early days but is no longer serving us as well as it did. > > Very soon it will be good to have a discussion to create a roadmap for what comes after the beta ("1.0"). I’m thinking - more platforms (Mastodon, Friendica, etc), community wikis, API for mobile apps, better accessibility and can’t wait to hear other ideas from the community.

    Where can i find an archive/compilation of the self recorded videos of idf soldiers blowing up apartments and mocking children in schools

    I remember seeing an archive that was collecting the videos idf soldiers posted of them gleefully mocking children in skits they recorded in their schools, videos of them blowing up apartments, posing with lingerie calling women whores, zip tying journalists and children stripped down to their underwear. I cant seem to find the archive anymore though. Does anyone know which human rights org was archiving these videos or where they can be found?

    I dont know what community this would belong in i hope its not a stupid question

    Here's an example of chatgpt\bots being used to push products

    this user seems to be a mix of a chatgpt bot and a real person. Notice how soo many of their posts are these long overly formal\affectionate replies with a link to specific products. The products are amazon links (probably referal links) and all the amazon links are hidden behind a redirect by using tastechocolate.co.uk with a specific link page per product so they don't get hidden by the auto mod. I'm guessing tastechocolate.co.uk is owned by the bot farm\user? A lot of the links are also to zoopy.com via zoopy.link which are probably also owned by the bot farm\user to generate ad revenue and affiliate\referral money.

    The need for a Fedi Union.

    tl;dr I propose a Fedi Union consisting of the developers of Phanpy, Pixelfed, Peertube, Lemmy, and PieFed. That will work as a way to fund all of the services collectively (with the option to still go to their individual patreons and fund them seperately) and as a way for them to communicate to help all the services be more compatible.

    The only way to stop Meta taking over the Fedi is by making better apps than them. Defederating from threads as the sole defense mechanism is a fools errand. They are migrating their Billion+ users from instagram to Threads, the couple million mastodon users defederating from them won't hurt them. Yes we might think who cares if they have billions of users on Threads we will stay on mastodon servers that defederate with them but realistically there will be times we need to check stuff posted there if the biggest content creators, journalists, gamedevs, artists, youtubers, are posting their work there which they will do because they want to reach large audiences and because Threads will provide a way to monetize their work.

    Threads is also being designed to take over Reddit\Lemmy next. Something no one has talked about is the fact that only one # is allowed in a post on Threads. This seems small but its actually huge because once launch their Reddit\Lemmy view every post on Threads with a # will be shown as a post on the subreddit/community with the name of that # and every like will be an upvote. Once this happens there will be times when specific niche communities and useful information will be stuck on their platforms. (like sometimes we still have to google for something with the word reddit to find useful information for something specific)

    The only actual way to compete with them is to, well, compete and do a better job. Compare the official Mastodon app with Threads or any other mastodon app. The official app STILL doesn't have grouped notifications, threaded replies, or quote posts. It is barely compatible with any other ActivityPub service (Mastodon basically EEE activitypub but thats a thread for another day). The Mastodon devs are very hostile to the broad activitypub community. They don't work with devs of other services, they don't accept PRs, and they're deadset on sticking to Ruby and being nothing more than a Twitter clone. Mastodon is by far the biggest activitypub app which makes them essentially lead the rest of the space.

    We need a Fedi Union where the developers of the different services work together so the services are fully compatible and so the community can fund the Fedi Union so devs outside the official team have the money to focus on development. The Mastodon team is getting around $30,000 a month and they haven't added a new feature in months (years?) meanwhile:

    The sole developer of Phanpy (a mastodon app) has launched everything mastodon has and more (instant translation on home feed, boost carousel, threaded replies, Catch Up ui, new media focused view)

    The sole developer of Pixelfed (an instagram competitor) has also developed Loops (a tiktok competitor), Sup (a WIP whatsapp competitor), and PubKit a toolkit for activitypub developers.

    the two (main) develops of Lemmy have made the second largest ActivityPub service that is already a fleshed out competitor to reddit and has a huge community of developers making frontends and apps and now a WIP wiki as well.

    I propose a Fedi Union consisting of the developers of Phanpy, Pixelfed, Peertube, Lemmy, and PieFed. That will work as a way to fund all of the services collectively (with the option to still go to their individual patreons and fund them seperately) and as a way for them to communicate to help all the services be more compatible.

    Permanent Audio crackling after installing linux

    I was distrohopping because I was getting sick of windows 10 and installed pop os on my secondary SSD and I started getting audio crackling issues. Then I realized even back on the Windows 10 SSD I had the same audio crackling issue. I formatted Pop OS to Bazzite and it persists. Formatted the Windows 10 SSD to Windows 11 and it persists. Now I have permanent audio crackling issues whenever I use the speakers on my monitor (headphones are fine). I've tried everything found online: changing the affinity in audiodg.exe one by one, changing the hz on the speakers, uninstalled sound drivers from device manager, tried using EasyEffects on the linux OSes. nothing helps other than restarting my pc and enjoying crackling free audio for about 10 minutes before it starts again :(

    Other people had a similar issue on PopOS and fixed it by changing the kernel they had installed but I tried that and it didnt help and iirc bazzite has a more updated kernel than popOS and that didn't help either

    This is my hardware:

    Whats do you use in your yt-dlp config for the best downloads?

    I formatted my PC recently and I'm reinstalling some stuff I forgot to make a backup of settings like yt-dlp so I started searching for what is a good config to download the best mp4 quality and found some interesting setups so I figured I'd make a thread for people to share what they use.

    Here's the most best setup I found so far which downloads a 1080p mp4 with the filename and includes metadata, english subtitles, and chapters if available: yt-dlp -f 'bestvideo[height<=1080][ext=mp4]+bestaudio[ext=m4a]/best[ext=mp4]/best' -S vcodec:h264 --windows-filenames --restrict-filenames --write-auto-subs --sub-lang "en.*" --embed-subs --add-metadata --add-chapters --no-playlist -N 4 -ci --verbose --remux-video "mp4/mkv" URL

    Ideally it would also mark the sponserblock section and download to a specified folder

    What is the official website for the Miyoo Mini Plus

    Ive been looking into getting a retro gaming handheld and the miyoo mini plus looks a really great and has a dedicated community with a nice linux OS (Onion OS) so I think it might be the best option but I can’t find the official website to order it from. There’s a ton of websites when googling and multiple have miyoo in the name which makes me not trust any of them. Theres only old reddit posts that state this or that is official with links to non https websites.

    Is it possible to change the View in the file picker on pop os?

    When I'm trying to pick a file say when I click Browse on the Image section of making a Lemmy post the file manager doesnt have a button to change the View to Grid so I can see what the image I'm selecting is. I can't tell what image is what by the tiny preview
