Google Chrome is a very popular, yet closed source web browser. This makes it a little tricky to install on a Linux system, as it’s pretty much never included by default on any distro, and usually not available for installation from official repositories.
The file manager (or file explorer) is the application that displays directories and files on a Linux system. Most people think of GUI applications when it comes to file managers, but there are also some command line utilities that can be used as file managers. Finding the right file manager for your needs is important, since they all come with different features and options.
Video metadata contains information like author, title, genre, comment, and creation date. This information is embedded in the video file itself, but it not really a common practice for video releases to contain a lot of metadata info. If nothing else, there is usually some copyright information. In this tutorial, you will see how to get and change video metadata on a Linux system. This can be accomplished from both command line and GUI. We will cover both methods below.
Using the terminal is one of the main draws that attracts users to a Linux system. It is very powerful and allows you to do many tasks just from your keyboard. But you can get even more use out of the command line if you have a good terminal to go along with it. Some terminals make things easier or allow you to split windows to increase your workflow efficiency, etc.
A lot of people may not think about Linux when video editing comes to mind, but make no mistake, there are a myriad of fine choices available when it comes to video editing software on a Linux system. There are varying levels of software, depending on whether you want to do in depth video editing or just quick edits on the fly. In some cases, you may find it useful to have one of each.
Torrents are an excellent way to share data publicly. As you may already know as a Linux user, many Linux distro developers choose to share their operating system in the form of a torrent download. This allows someone to publish data and rely on the “swarm” (the users that are uploading or downloading the torrent’s contents) to continue hosting it.
Super Mario needs no presentations: it is one of the most beloved video games characters. Super Mario 64 was originally released for the Nintendo64 console in 1996, and represented the first 3D episode of the Mario franchise. Thanks to a github project, which achieved the full decompilation of the game, it is now possible to build a native Linux port and play it without the need of a Nintendo64 emulator. In order to compile the port, an original, and legally obtained “.z64” rom of the game is needed.
The purpose of this tutorial is to extract the audio contents from a video file on a Linux system. This can be done from the command line after installing the
ffmpeg software package, if you do not already have it. The audio can be extracted into a variety of formats like mp3 or ogg, and the video types supported range from mp4, mkv, avi, and others.
Audio metadata contains information like artist, song title, track number, album name, etc. It can even contain an embedded image of the cover art for the album. This metadata is accessed by music players in order to display relevant information about the song that is playing. Without this metadata, a music player might have trouble sorting your music by artist, album, genre, or putting the tracks in proper order.
Linux systems offer a wide range of choice, and music players are no exception. For quite a while, there have been fantastic options when choosing the perfect music player for your Linux computer. All of these players are just as good, if not better, than their proprietary counterparts on other operating systems. They range from the minimal, light weight, and targeted to feature-rich multipurpose players capable of nearly anything. There’s a great choice for every music fan on Linux.
PDF metadata contains information like author, subject, creator, producer, and keywords. This information is embedded into the PDF file itself, and can be retrieved if a user needs to determine who released the document, or wants to see what application was used to create it, etc. The keywords can also help organize PDF documents by category in case you have a lot of PDF files.
