mithroshenki: yes, did you give your presentation?01:42
shenkimithro: yep, it went well01:43
mithrobtw TimVideos technically includes more then just 3 projects01:45
shenkithat slide was stolen without changes from one of your decks :)01:45
mithroI think I said "main" in there somewhere :)01:45
mithroIt could also be out of date01:45
shenkiyeah, i suspect it's out of date01:46
mithroor it could have mean 3 projects directly included in streaming/capture stuff01:46
mithroThere is also the website01:46
mithroand now slide-lint01:46
shenkiedi forgot about edid.tv01:49
mithroWe should really get that into shape and start using that01:50

mithroheyo tija03:02
shenkitija: i was chatting with rusty, a guy I work with, about our framerate issue03:03
shenkitija: and he suggested we try underclocking the core03:03
shenkitija: underclocking the MJPEG should cause a reduction in frame rate03:04
shenkitija: if it doesn't it means we are being limited by something else in the pipeline03:04
shenkiwhat do you think?03:04
aps-sidsshenki: was this talk recorded?03:05
tijashenki: Nice idea! will do that!03:05

shenkitija: good work on the blog posts. mithro and i have been following your progress03:07
tijashenki: I am blogging about yesterday's work. Internet was down here yesterday night.03:08
aps-sidsmithro: any idea about what is the replacement for "gst.PluginNotFoundError" exception in Gst 1.0?03:08
shenkitija: cool03:08
mithrotija: yeah, the blog posts are great! You might want to also try "snippets" too (see for example)03:09

mithroNiharika: great!07:15
mithroNiharika: are you doing daily snippets? I understand you are working on your exams at the moment?07:15
Niharikamithro: Yeah. Exams this week. Next week too, but I have gaps between exams so I´ll work next week and this weekend as well.07:16
*** slomo has joined #timvideos07:16
mithroNiharika: it would be awesome if you could post a single line snippet with "Spent today on exams revision" on your blog just to make sure we understand where your time is going07:17
Niharikamithro: Okay! I´ll make sure I do it.07:18
mithroNiharika: I'm not quite up to date where you are at. Did you solve your issue with getting the new page working? I figured out that the example I pointed you at was probably broken.07:20
Niharikamithro: Yes. I figured that too. It´s using some unsupported syntax, as far as I could see. I didn´t get much far after that.07:21
NiharikaBut skay said she´ll be free after this month, then she´ll be able to help.07:21
mithroNiharika: it turns out the template module wasn't being imported at the top07:22
mithroit's a very quick fix07:22

mparuszewskimithro: I've got a message from GitHub about 2 repositories: planet and getting-started? Does it mean that I can commit changes to that repository or I should work with pull requests?14:08
mithromparuszewski: I've been using irccloud14:08
mithro is for the planet14:08
tpbTitle: timvideos/planet · GitHub (at
mithroyou can push directly to that if you want14:08
mithroBecause of the convoluted way the gettingstarted stuff works, I think we should do pull/pushes manually when we are happy14:09
mparuszewskiOk, I will do that. I will now create jekyll project for Planet, add my theme and commit to my repository and then to main repository when all will be ready.14:10
mparuszewskiWhat do you think about creating tasks in Trello or other app for project management to make sure all is done correclty and according to the plan?14:11
mithroActually, now that I think about it14:11
mithromparuszewski: if you find it useful for yourself, then go right ahead14:11
mithromparuszewski: I think the way the planet repo should work is14:11
mithromparuszewski: all the config stuff is in the master branch14:11
mithromparuszewski: while the generated content is in the gh-pages branch?14:12
mithroor a different branch?14:12
mithroIE when the planet downloads the files, do they get committed to the repo?14:12

*** Palash has quit IRC14:14

*** tvCommitBot has left #timvideos14:16
mparuszewskiI should write a script for checking for new news from planet and commit changes to the repo. And then GitHub should automatically publish them to the website.14:18
mparuszewskiGetting started page is more complicated, because it uses plugins and GitHub does not allow to use plugins in their generator, that's why we will update it manually or with deploy script/cron task.14:19

mparuszewskiDo you know the reason of that? Where is the timvideos-website user and why is he merging my fork to main repository?14:24
mithromparuszewski: long story14:24
*** techdragon has joined #timvideos14:24
mparuszewskiOk. :)14:25
mithroThe timvideos-website is the user doing the generation stuff on server that I set up for you14:25
mithroIt's running the script14:26
mithrothe script pulls from
mithropushes the content to getting-started.git14:26
mithroand then generates the content and pushes to
mparuszewskiI undestand that part, but are my changes visible for that script?14:28
mithrobecause I pulled your changes into my local repo to look at them14:28
mithroand then accidently pushed them into
mithroso the script pulled your changes from into it's local repo14:29
mithrowhich it then pushed to getting-started.git14:29
mparuszewskiAh, now I undestand everything. :)14:30
mithroso I reverted the changes to and getting-started.git but forgot to also remove it from the server14:30
mithroso it then re-pushed your changes14:30
mparuszewskiThanks for information, I will be aware of that. :)14:31
mithromparuszewski: once you have finished making work we can get rid of the so it then becomes much simplier14:34
mithromparuszewski: I just fixed the planet repo up a bit, you will need to repull / refork it if you have already done so14:34
*** Joelw has quit IRC14:35
mithromparuszewski: so, feel free to send pull requests to the getting-started.git repo, we can just never merge the pull request into the repo directly at the moment14:36
mithromparuszewski: I also found you a gist with into on generating a opml file, dunno if that is helpful14:36
mparuszewskiThanks, I will take a look, I haven't heard about opml files. Should Planet page also have informations from github about commits? Those are also provided by rss, I've seen that in your opml configuration file?14:37
*** techdragon has quit IRC14:38
*** techdragon has joined #timvideos14:38
*** Joelw has joined #timvideos14:40
mithromparuszewski: can the planet generate multiple output feeds?14:40
mithromparuszewski: maybe we want one for "blog posts" and one for "github activity"?14:41
mithromparuszewski: so for the planet repository, the gh-pages branch should contain the generated jekyll output from the master branch14:42
mithromparuszewski: the cname is all set up too14:42
mithromparuszewski: does that all make sense?14:43
mparuszewskiI will take a look, but I think it is possible, if not I will add that functionality to that plugin. :)14:43
mparuszewskiShould gh-pages branch contain only generated files (only htmls) - from _site folder?14:46
mparuszewskiOr it should contain all jekyll files and GitHub should generate page from that files?14:46
CarlFKmithro: is anything being done about the hdmi2usb locking up?14:46
mithroCarlFK: fix the issue causing it to lock up14:47
mithroCarlFK: how is it locking up?14:47
CarlFKmithro: what you saw at ps1 that made you say "I think the fpga is locked up"14:47
mithroCarlFK: that was a long time ago, so I can't remeber what that was14:48
mithromparuszewski: normally the master branch of a repo would contain the code for your project and the gh-pages would contain a jekyll site which github uses to generate the output14:48
mparuszewskiOk, now it's clear for me.14:49
mithromparuszewski: but in the planet case, the master branch is going to contain a jekyll website, we are going to generate the output ourselves on and then store the result for *our* jekyll run in the gh-pages14:49
CarlFKmithro: plug in a hdmi source (laptop), upload, hit button to switch to hdmi input, fpga locked up14:49
CarlFKmithro: but...14:49
mparuszewskiOk. :)14:49
mithroCarlFK: "the fpga locked up" is not something that is really externally visible14:50
CarlFKmithro: I think you said it worked with the "this new thing" but not fxload ?14:50
mithroCarlFK: you see things like LEDs not changing and nothing coming out of the HDMI ports and it not detecting anything on the input and the usb device broken14:50
mithroCarlFK: which kinds of indicated the FPGA is in some type of very bad state14:51
CarlFKmithro: that sounds like what you saw (which is what I see)14:54
mithroCarlFK: can you confirm which of the above and what you have tested. I can't look over you shoulder, so you need to be *explicit*.14:55
mithroCarlFK: you should know this, you've said it enough to GSoC students in the past :P14:59
CarlFKmithro: I thought once you saw it I was done15:01
mithroCarlFK: nope! not at all15:01
mithroCarlFK: I know that the issue can occur, no idea what causes it, or why it occurs (or even exactly what is occuring)15:02
mithroSo I have no idea how to fix it15:03
CarlFKbefore I do all that.. what is the alternative to fxload?  (I think thats what you said?)15:03
CarlFKplus I don't have the atlys here, so nothing will happen till you have gone to sleep15:03
shenkitija: hey15:09
shenkitija: as mithro mentioned on your blog, can you commit what you've got and push it to git hub?15:09
shenkiit might be an idea to do daily commits+pushes to github with what you have15:09
shenkidon't worry about things being messy or just experiments15:10
shenkii would like to reproduce some of your tests :)15:10
skaymithro: CarlFK's laptop is flaking out. he wants me to paste to you15:13

skaymithro: fpgalink15:14
skayoh, talk to carl about it?15:14
skayhe doesn't know where the fpga link instructions are15:14
tijashenki: Will do that tonight15:14
skaymithro: find out where the instructions are and link them to CarlFK here15:15
mithroskay: on that page, under stage 1 there are now three options15:15
