  1. no kidding, LL stopped making improvements almost entirely a long time ago, these days they've switched to actively making things worse with the noob last names people get when registering now, the absolutely awful UI redesign, the still insanely high priced land/tier cost that simply isn't justified for something that is certifiably in the free to pay MMO death throes. i'm not joking at all either, SL has been being maintained like it's a greedy platform to extort money from people and give nothing in return for quite a few years now, they literally never make significant improvements at all and i bet they only have people in the office when it starts to come apart at the seams. where is support for modern PC hardware, seriously? 4GB is an absolutely abysmally small hard cap to place on v-ram, they've never once done a single performance optimization since i've joined secondlife either and it's been overdue since your avatar rating stopped governing how many lindens you made.
  2. if the magic box containing the listed item is not rezzed somewhere (anywhere for the most part) in SL the item will never be delivered untill the magic box containing the listed item is placed.

  4. with a lot more errors, less eloquence and a bit more off topic.
  5. i'd have to agree and also possibly argue that since shared media almost undoubtedly would require someone be logged onto SL to view it that the stance technicality resides on even further shaky footing regardless of who technically is hosting the content in the end. to reiterate: say someone does this, starts showing everyone they can the video (or whatever it winds up being), you (probably at least) literally can't view it outside of SL, so the fact that the content's ability to be able to be partaken of resides wholly inside SL the organization providing the hosting is quite totally irrelevant, because the content resides entirely within SL itself. now, it can be argued that it could be viewed easily outside of SL, it may be a case by case decision of the person posting/hosting it, i'm really not sure however. edit: actually... nevermind most of that, i just re-read and i was a bit off base the first time around, wondering where i got the video aspect from now actually... o_0 teach me to post at 3am in the morning
  6. yeah i was hoping there was some way to do it directly on the sky itself. i guess i'll create a feature request JIRA. i really want to avoid doing it with prims at all or particles even (particles as media textures are a seperate hell all their own to script btw) to bypass the draw distance issue. hmmm.... re-reading it seems like you may mean to imply that draw distance could still be an issue even doing it straight on the windlight sky itself? not entirely relevant but possible worthwhile other information: was visualizing this to be a full sim size theater type of thing, have seats in a large circle over a good bit of the sim and they force your cam straight up at the sky when you sit...
  7. no you understood the question well enough i think. i guess to be honest, the main thing i'm asking for here is if it's possible to do if you buy a new simulator. i know the ground texture can be a custom one you've made if you arrange so beforehand with LL, so it has to make me wonder if the same can be done for a sky texture instead. beyond that, if anyone comes up with any clever ideas to do the same thing within the constraints outlined in the OP i'd love to brainstorm a bit beyond that, heck if anyone happens to find out that the sky texture has a UUID in the library or elsewhere, that could be useful too.
  8. ideas? i had the idea to use a custom uploaded sky texture to display videos for like an outdoor ampitheater type thing, pretty stumped on how to go about it though so far. if i purchase a simulator new from LL i know i can use a custom uploaded texture for the ground, but what about the sky? is it possible? i'd like to avoid megaprim solutions and (probably) most anything relying on actual prims being the display as draw distance limitations would make that a hassle. also like to avoid anything requiring client side modifications to client files/etc. it'd need to be usable for any and every noob out there to be much useful (providing they've enabled media of course) just looking for clever ideas really in case anyone can think up anything, not requesting anyone build anything at all for me.
  9. set in your preferences to be able to select where you login to before you login, it'll add a little dropdown box with options to login to: your home. your last location. a sim name you typed. mute the object or person if it keeps happening and realize that messages just like that are nothing more than scare tactics.
  10. QFT also, just for informational purposes, you could try a WHOIS on the IP you found with the media stream exploit mentioned elsewhere in this thread, but even at that point it's fairly pointless since the WHOIS will return information about the person's ISP (internet service provider) who hopefully are forbidden giving any personally identifiable information about who was using that IP at that given time, unless a law is broken. also, most routers act as a hardware firewall, for the most part, this means that unless a computer behind that firewall requested the data from the IP requesting data of an IP the router manages it will be ignored. in other words, most routers block all connection attempts not initiated either by them, or by a computer behind them. when you use your web browser to surf the internet, you are initiating those connections and as such the router doesn't ignore them, this goes for most internet using applications also.

  13. tl;dr response: because, they assume LL doesn't by rule of thumb generally investigate the relevant data. also, why is it impossible to move the typing cursor to AFTER this smiley?

  14. SL "pure vanilla" and a full uninstall reinstall solved the issue, thanks for the help guys. since two were technically correct, i gave the "correct" to the one that provided the most information, thanks to you both, appreciate it
  15. 1. haven't tried watching videos outside of secondlife via quicktime, will try that and see if it does anything at all and report the results here 2. i used to have windows vista, installed windows 7 not too long ago, worked perfectly on vista and i did an upgrade install from that, so i doubt it, i really do, it sounds like it was a firewall configuration in that instance anyway, which i'm positive it's not in mine 3. bandwidth/packet loss issue: my connection is quoted at 20 megabits a second and 4 megabits a second upload, so i'm actually quite happy to see that i fluctuate above 4MBPS in this result sometimes http://www.speedtest.net/result/706174822.png and for packet loss this set of results is actually fairly more interesting honestly, test servers in california provide very good results, while tests to at least one test server in washington net fairly bad results though, i'm going to risk erring on the side of confidence though and say that it be might a remote server problem producing these results, but it's hard to say for sure without doing considerably more retesting with random servers http://www.pingtest.net/result/9679706.png problematic(?) server results in washington test server: http://www.pingtest.net/result/9679851.png and a long distance one to a west coast server just for shits and giggles: http://www.pingtest.net/result/9679808.png 4. i've tried a full reinstall of snowglobe, various versions of KL's shadowdraft client as well as emerald, all produce identical results, i admit i can't say for positive i've tried "SL pure vanilla" though, i'll post results here shortly 5/6. already done, as mentioned in the first post. no change whatsoever. 7. see #4 Ellla.McMahon wrote: Hello Cheetah, can you watch the video(s) through the Quicktime programme ? see Test the movie outside of Second Life Qie Niangao had a suggestion on this similar Question Re: Why is video streaming on one computer, not another You'll probably end up uninstalling Quicktime altogether and reinstalling it, but one thing you can try first is to empty the Quicktime cache. You can do that from the Advanced tab of the Quicktime Control Panel, or in the Quicktime Player's "Quicktime Preferences". Which OS do you have ? Re: Windows 7 and SL Video I have the latest version of Quicktime and the latest drivers for my video card. I've found out it's my Antivirus. I have Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 (version and I found that if I disable it, video works perfectly. But if I leave it on, all I get is a big Q and blue dots running back and forth (the loading/connecting screen). Quicktime works fine for, like, Apple's trailer site. Seems Kaspersky is blocking URL connection for Quicktime video. See also this Question Windows 7 and Quicktime Have you checked for any network connection issues, see How do I check for packet loss (network lag)? and Make sure you have enough bandwidth Have you tried completely uninstalling the Second Life Viewer, saving chat logs if you wish. How do I fully uninstall and reinstall Second Life? Make sure the Second Life Cache, User Settings and content of any Windows Temporary folders are also deleted. Uninstall the Quicktime programme and reboot your computer. Download and install the latest version of Quicktine for your OS. Reboot your computer again. Then download the latest Viewer Second Life Version Number: 1.23.5 (136262) Oct 14 2009 12:08:26 (Second Life Release) from here Second Life® Installer, save the programme to your Desktop and install. Hope some of these suggestions and links help
  16. i haven't been able to glean much useful information or even a fix from that file sadly, uninstalling and reinstalling both itunes/quicktime/bonjour as well as SL viewers themselves do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to further address this issue in any way at all, in fact, the only fix i've attempted that produced ANY result to any degree besides the problem still existing in exactly the way it did before, was sadly enough, completely formating the HD and reinstalling windows from scratch, really looking to avoid that though.
  17. my inworld video used to work just fine and still does - for everyone but me - anyone want to help change that? i've been trying to fix this for quite some time, i'll search youtube, via the TV's menu and play a video and the result is sound but no video and the media texture turns gray and stays that way well into 20+ minutes, it also sometimes produces an error saying "no mime type set for the media type none/none"" but not all videos do this, sound works in all videos though for whatever it's worth without the video. i've been trying process of elimination to figure out what the problem is, but it's quite slowly going nowhere, list of things i've tried so far with the result; 1. uninstalling and reinstalling both quicktime and itunes as well as bonjour - no change. 2. telling quicktime to update itself - no change there either; claims up to date. 3. setting quicktime to all possible defaults via the windows vista "set program defaults" interfance - no change as well (seeing a pattern yet?) 4. uninstalling all codec packs previously installed on the computer - still no change, unless you count windows not being able to play roughly 80% of my hard drive stored videos. 5. replacing previous codec pack a different one in hopes that would help - still no change. (had CCCP codec pack before, also tried k-lite codec pack) (both from free-codecs.com) 6. reinstalling vista entirely and formatting the hard drive (needed it anyway, was almost full and lots of bloat) - it worked for nearly two weeks before reproducing the exact same problem. 7. additionally, i've been trying to do some research on my own to find out if it's a missing protocol or file extension (few leads, set quicktime protocol "RSTP" back to quicktime) - still no change. 8. (inworld attempt) SL menu "advanced" -> media -> "reload MIME types" - no noticable change at all in any way. the TV works perfectly fine for everyone else, just not me and even then just no video, i'm suspecting it may be a codec pack, but then again even uninstalling them entirely has no effect what so ever and doesn't fix the problem and further breaks local video playback. i'm honestly at my wits end here with this problem, any help? reinstalling vista isn't really an option i want to pursue again - unless you have an 8GB or larger USB drive you want to let me borrow, so please don't waste my time and yours suggesting that unless it's to tell me the package is in the mail also, i doubt anyone at LL will read this, or care, but couldn't we at least have an alternative player to handle this type of stuff? surely quicktime is the "industry leader" because of iphone but, why not broaden our horizons here anyway? thanks for the help and replies!! - Cheetah Hammerer.
  18. MiraBlair.Werefox wrote: *ahem* Lol, the same thing occured to me and my partner last night. ._. Explain Visual Cache? "clearing the visual cache" is a deruthing technique which can admitably work fairly well. basically the idea behind it, is your video card will be holding memory/marking it as active, for the textures you're currently seeing/rendering in the world - clearing that cache can force the video processor to temporarily mark the memory being held for textures as un-needed which will let it "forget" what all textures and etc it had in front of it for usage whenever it needed resulting in the video card reprocessing nearby textures and re-allocating memory for the ones it thinks it will use again soon. it's a fairly simple thing to do as well, it may or may not help when Ctrl + Alt + R or open and close appearance don't make a difference, it's hard to call beforehand, but shouldn't be left out of the process of elimination. 1. create a brand new prim 2. sit on that prim and right click -> edit from the radial 3. in the position field edit it up past your VIEW DISTANCE set in preferences -> graphics 4. press Ctrl + U with the edit window still highlighted to undo the position change 5. stand up and delete the prim. if you're unsure what your view distance setting might be set at, 500 or a 1000 should be well beyond what you're currently rendering, so i'd recommend using one of those distances first if you're not sure.
