Re: AV1+O2Cam and YouTube

I can't even browse youtube on my O2. At least in Firefox. What is everyone else using? I figured that any videos I make would be sent to my main PC for uploading to youtube.

I'll check back for updates and results here. :)

Re: Selling Octane for parts (mine)

Is this the machine that you got to run Softimage? What is the CPU speed?

Re: Some more SGI history with a Canadian slant

I remember the Webforce ads.

I seem to remember even visiting a Webforce website if I remember correctly. Though, by the time I had money to attempt to buy an SGI I was looking for an Octane/O2 1996/1997.

Thanks for the information. :)

Re: Desktop video capture on O2?

Dmrecord sounds perfect for my needs. So I typed "man dmrecord" and am reading but I guess I am not typing the flags appropriately as it keeps telling me I need to set all screen flags Do you have an example start command with all the flags set right for an o2 I can put in a text file? I m...

Re: Desktop video capture on O2?

Media recorder gives me an "Mvr Glx error for source 1" message and won't record the desktop.

Any ideas?

Desktop video capture on O2?

I was going to try and do a Retro Software Review and Tutorial on Softimage and Maya on the O2 and put it up on youtube. I thought the media recorder was able to do this but at the moment it only spits out single frames. Is there a way to do this with media recorder OR another software? I tried to d...

Re: 300 MHz o2 startup issues. Ram?

Yes, I ran Maya and Softimage and did both animation and render tests. The machine ran all day with no DIMM warnings as before.

I think it is good for now.

Re: 300 MHz o2 startup issues. Ram?

I have had a few O2 ram sticks behave strangely and found that sometimes they worked when switched around into different sockets (of couse keeping pairs in the same size). However, some just completely did not work. That worked, thanks ! I tried reseating it but swapping them around fixed whatever ...

Re: FREE - Octane1, Origin200 - Derbyshire, UK

Wow. A decent condition origin 200

If I didn't have on ocean to get over I'd take one or both. But I'm sure they'll go to a good home.

Hopefully, someday we can make molds of the plastics that go on these things in deskside mode and print our own.
