Greetings! PROBLEM: switching between USB desktop speakers and USB headphones to listen to online music without closing browser. I'm running an HP laptop with XP(SP3). Sometimes I use USB desktop speakers and sometimes USB headphones (through a USB hub) to listen to online music. I unplug the headphones from the hub and plug in the desktop speakers and vice-versa. When I unplug one and plug in the other, I have to close and re-open the browser to continue listening to music. I've tried both IE 8 and Firefox 3.6xx. NOTE: the headphone jack is dead. I would like to be …

Hello everyone, So I recently upgraded my PC after having a 939 DIL Socket processor for years. I've been spending the past few days trying to get it back up to scratch but I have a problem. Each time I run a game (MW2/Total Annihilation/Half Life 1 etc) the game appears and lets me play which is all well and good. The problem happens at a random amount of time after I have started playing. For no reason (that I know of) the game still plays but the audio completley messes up. Without any cue, a random sound bite that's …

Hi, I'm trying to capture an audio stream from Axis IP camera. The audio data encoded as g.711 should be captured from the camera. I'm using the following http request: [code] Stream roughStream = null; string URLaudio = "http://5.123.220.228/axis-cgi/audio/receive.cgi?httptype=singlepart"; request = (HttpWebRequest)HttpWebRequest.Create(URLaudio); request.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("admin", "password"); request.Method = "GET"; audioResponse = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse(); roughStream = audioResponse.GetResponseStream(); [/code] However, I am getting that audioResponse has ContentLength equal to -1, (meaning that either I'm not getting the data at all, or it cannot read the stream beacuse of something (stream too long?!?). I am guessing that camera is sending a continuous stream …

Please help -- I have tried every solution I could find on the Internet and nothing has worked. I get no audio from YouTube or any Flash video, but regular audio (videos, games, anything outside the browser) works fine. The proper audio devices are selected in the Control Panel and all non-Flash audio seems to work fine. I've tried uninstalling Flash, older versions of Flash, the newest version of Flash, uninstalling Firefox, the older versions of Firefox, the newest Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Safari. No Flash audio in anything. I tried upgraded from Service Pack 2 to Service Pack …

Hi folks, I'm working on a complex AI system that pulls information from the internet (and possibly from other live sources in the future) and learns from it in the same way that a human does. I'm not sure if this counts as a C# problem or more of a media format problem (depends upon the solution I guess), but I want to be able to store the previously-mentioned information in the following ways; [LIST] [*]Text; well, quite simple. Just as-is really. [*]Images should be stored in raw form as pixel data (I've already found out how to do this; …

Just because I was bored one day I looked on the net for an app that would let me use my RockBand ps3 drum kit on the PC. There was a fancy direct X app out that turned out to be very buggy, slow, and annoying to use. I set out to write my own and within 40 minutes I had a simple working system. But I ran into a problem with sound quality and speed. I need to be able to load the sound clips into memory, so not to read the files from the disk a million times. …

Random audio commercials play when I have no browsers or windows open. I have tried looking thrugh my processes screen for cpu usage, but it changes so fast I can't catch it. Any advice would be helpful. Also, any files I can delete to allow my computer to run better would also be helpful. This is my HJT report.

Isn't anything safe from hackers? Now they've apparently found a way to hack into systems through a media stream, threatening users with denial of service attacks that can bring down servers and desktops alike. The vulnerability was reported yesterday by VoIPshield Laboratories, a security tools maker in Canada. The flaws were found in Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007, Office Communicator and Windows Live Messenger, which Microsoft said could impact as many as 250 million people. The flaws also affect [url=http://www.voipshield.com/research.php]many other applications[/url] and systems that use the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real-time_Transport_Protocol]Real-time Transport Protocol[/url] (RTP), including those from Avaya, Cisco and Nortel, according to …

It has always been something of a running joke here in England, where you have to buy a license from the government in order to watch TV (I kid you not, it helps fund the good old BBC), that blind people get a 50 percent reduction on the annual £135 ($271) fee. Some might say that not being able to see the programming content of British television is a good thing, others that you can already listen to radio for free so why bother paying for the privilege? However, in a similar way that subtitles and closed captioning have allowed …

The software giant Adobe has made another move to expand its reaches by unveiling a new media player program called "Adobe Media Player". And no, Adobe hasn't just created *another* video format for streaming, they're using an existing technology that they already own to handle the video: Macromedia Flash. The software's supposed to have similar capabilities to Microsoft's Windows Media Player and Apple's QuickTime software, allowing users to stream live video over the internet, using beefed-up Flash that's higher quality than you're used to seeing. The player also has some "normal" features that you would expect from a media player. …

Windows Media Player 11 to RTM Sept. 14. Yes, you read it right: http://www.thehotfix.net/comments.php?catid=1&shownews=1022 What happens when you dogfood a software for a long period of time: Well the piece of software that you were currently dogfood quickly becomes obselete and requires an update. This is exactly what happened to my Remindme Program. Each version was being dogfood for 2 to 3 weeks. After each weeks, the program quickly becomes obselete and requires an update quickly. This was on a small scale, but what about a software on a large scale. Well this is exactly what is happening at Microsft. …
