Man I kinda wish mastodon supported image previews from direct links to images like discord. I work as a local server hosting provider and as my own personal projects I've got two file hosting setup.
https://files.buymymojo.net is a completely public image/video hosting website that I use so I can send higher quality images around discord and other places on the internet.
And then I have one setup to Wasabi S3 thanks to a single post mentioning it from @stux
Mastodon doesn't embed these files sadly so I'll have to look at the GitHub to see if there's an issue, this feature would be pretty fun.
Example image (happy potatoe):
catching up with couple week old news about #Cyberpunk2077 and near the very end of their last earnings call they mentioned because of an agreement they made adopting #UE5 that they are abandoning adding multiplayer to Redengine. If this means they aren't adding multiplier to cyberpunk anymore I am gonna be so sad.. and it's looking that way
Just finished turning my twitter thread talking about Mastodon into a full blog post, only took a few hours because I kept getting side tracked on making large changes to my website's theme
This is the graph of just AV1 preset 12 against X264 Faster preset
It seems like using SVT-AV1 speed 12 wouldn't hurt a 1080p60 twitch stream as much as I once thought
Going from preset 12 to 11 increases the average VMAF score by about 1% and going from preset 11 to 8 increases quality by only 1.4%
X264's Faster preset got a score of 84.24% and AV1 preset 12 got a score of 90.12% which is a decent improvement in this one test clip.
More testing to come.
