Windows console applications. Multimedia

Operating systems : Windows

MPlayer : FFmpeg

Media players appeared long ago, but their heyday began with the mass spread of personal computers powerful enough to play video files. This coincided with the mass spread of operating systems and other software with graphical user interface. However, a program with a graphical user interface is dualistic in its nature: there is a code responsible for graphical user interface, for the appearance and there is a code - for performing the task the given application has been created for in the first place. Both code complexes consume system resources, their response time to user actions makes up certain amount of waiting time. And in cases or concepts when appearance is taken as less important - less important to the point of sparing or almost sparing to employ it - console applications, among others, appear. Moreover, the segmentation of the GUI and of the engine makes it easier to change the graphical user interface or perform complex automated operations.

The scheme is implemented for media players for Windows as well. MPlayer, for instance, in its usual form is a console application, starting up quickly, having fast response to user actions, consuming system resources almost entirely for its immediate task. And on this basis if desired, one or another graphical interface may be added for creating, all in all, a new application.

ELinks. Configuration

 

Jump to: ELinks - Text-based or console web browser. Description: features, screenshots, download links. ELinks. Use - How to use ELinks. What ELinks can and what can not, i.e. what may be configured depends on several things. The most common are capability of the console it is run on and support of what was chosen during the compilation process of an ELinks browser source code. Under certain operating systems (Windows for instance) it is easier and more reliable to omit some possible features. The configuration of ELinks 0.12pre2 from Package Database of Zenwalk Linux (originally based on Slackware, still keeping compatibility with its binary packages) is discussed here. It is quite representative in its qualities among other Linux ELinks browser versions for desktop PC computers. User interface of Windows ELinks and that of Linux / some other *nix systems ELinks of comparable versions are the same. If an ELinks package has been compiled without some feature or the console is not capable of something then it just will not be possible to choose the feature in the configuration process; or possible, but it will not work. For example, if this ELinks is compiled without support of 256 colors or your console is not capable of displaying them, then it just will only be possible to choose 16 or "No colors (mono)" in the menu. And the ELinks will work as much well in the rest. The whole configuration of ELinks may be done through the menu of the browser - there is no need to edit config files. Even if some fine-tuning may require editing of elinks.conf or even source code files - but that is not the issue for average use. The menu of ELinks is hidden when it is displaying a web page: To access the menu, press Esc on the keyboard: Configuration options are in "Setup" group: 1 ) "Language" - set a language of ELinks user interface. It is possible to set it to the system language or to several others. System and terminal emulator / console have to be prepared for this change - corresponding localization / internationalization files installed and configured. Choose a language (English in this example): To keep it, press Esc again, then Setup, then Save options, then confirm by clicking OK.
