those look sweet. I really like Audiogram.
#
schmarty
Thanks, miklb. Me, too. Today I learned that BBC forked it and added a ton of features. https://github.com/BBC-News-Labs/audiogram

[BBC-News-Labs] audiogram: Builds upon the WYNC audiogram project, which was created to share audio content as mp4 on social media platforms

I think I can use it to bake in captions, but need to reverse engineer the API for their "in-house" machine transcription service to make it work with tools I have available.

#
[miklb]
very cool
#
[miklb]
so I’ve pretty much decided to separate out my “posts” on two different topics into their own blog/site and have my main domain just be a firehose with reposts of the blog posts. Unless someone talks me out of it ?
KartikPrabhu joined the channel
#
aaronpk
[miklb]: that sounds kind of neat :-)
[miklb] joined the channel
#
[miklb]
thanks. I kinda want to have my original domain be more of a life tracking/stream of conscious site and separate out tech related posts to a new site, then have my food related thoughts on another. I’ve been holding off on posting on the food subject because didn’t want to mix w/my politics.
#
Loqi
nice
#
schmarty
i have some tweaks to make, but am excited about the possibility of making these interview teasers look really nice. :}

Ruxton
schmarty: you can subtitle audio tags very similarly if all you're doing is presenting a static image in the background
#
Ruxton
ohh wait, they're hard subs
#
schmarty
Ruxton: I've only seen examples of that work with video tags, using source tags inside.
#
schmarty
I want to practice with several ways of doing this, so any examples are appreciated
#
schmarty
Hard subs work the best for POSSE, I think
#
Ruxton
it works in audio tags too, though there was some bugs last year in FF with exact timing issues (millisecond timing problems) that I wrote some fixes for
#
Ruxton
not sure how subs in the mp4 container works in video tag, but that might be a better option too?
#
schmarty
In this case, the tooling to make hard subs was more easily set up than any for generating webvtt files for source tags or srt for in-container soft subs :)
#
schmarty
Extra bonus that hard subs work on Twitter, which currently supports no other format
#
Ruxton
this is something I was working over a year ago, a lyric player tied to WebVTT subtitles - http://mirror.rhythmandpoetry.net/song-test/
#
gRegorLove
What's hard subs?
#
Ruxton
hard subs are subtitles that are just part of the video stream
#
Ruxton
like, they are on the actual video, you can't turn them on, off or benefit from their textual representation
#
Ruxton
schmarty's video above is hard-subbed
#
schmarty
I think I've also seen them referred to as open captioning
#
schmarty
I like the lyric player very much. Thanks for the share! I have been pondering all these options and more as ways of making the audio newsletter more accessible and engaging
#
Ruxton
I have some good tooling setup to write the subtitles in Reaper (my audio workstation) too
snarfed joined the channel
#
schmarty
I I have very little experience with tooling as yet. I've been using the script that I read, along with a "forced alignment" tool called Gentle to find the word timings. I was able to use that tonight for the first time with the BBC fork of Audiogram

Hi
#
raziellight
Just saw the webpage seems cool
#
KartikPrabhu
welcome raziellight
#
raziellight
Thx
#
KartikPrabhu
do you already have a personal website or are you exploring the indieweb for now?
#
raziellight
Exploring for starters. I made a webpage on geocities back in the day and know how to program so im not starting from scratch
#
KartikPrabhu
awesome. feel free to ask questions/give feedback here
#
raziellight
Thanks for the welcome
#
KartikPrabhu
there are usually more people around during US day hours
#
raziellight
I think its really cool. Im into decentralized stuff as well
#
raziellight
Theres some decentralized software that like hosts webpages on the internet. Forget the name
#
raziellight
But it had that indie geocities feel to it as well
#
raziellight
Everyone just trying out making little websites. Its awesome
#
KartikPrabhu
yes, I like that independence too, though I don't really understand the whole "decentralised" stuff
#
raziellight
Its the same idea of indie web. Not putting content into silos so we have control over our content
#
KartikPrabhu
yes, that is the one part I understand :)
#
raziellight
:)
#
KartikPrabhu
raziellight: are you looking to get your own domain and site?

The broadcast term for hard subs is burnt-in captions
#
mblaney
I found out the other day that Facebook now tells people I'm POSSE'ing via bridgy.... has anyone else noticed this?
#
cweiske
screenshot?
#
mblaney
it has a little link labelled Bridgy in my post, that takes you to apps.facebook.com, and then iframe's https://brid.gy
#
KartikPrabhu
aah so it is a FB app/api thing
#
mblaney
cweiske: I'll put up a post with a bunch of screenshots.
#

[Tantek Çelik] Post Type Discovery
#
raziellight
Thanks let me take a look
#
KartikPrabhu
raziellight: I use a microformats2-based file storage on my own site
#
raziellight
Hmm what is it?
#
KartikPrabhu
what is microformats?
#
Loqi
microformats are extensions to HTML for marking up people, organizations, events, locations, blog posts, products, reviews, resumes, recipes etc https://indieweb.org/microformats
#
KartikPrabhu
what is file-storage?
#
Loqi
File Storage is the practice of storing main (primary) site content in flat files in a filesystem https://indieweb.org/file-storage
#
KartikPrabhu
raziellight: there you go ^ Loqi the helpful bot!

what's the idea KartikPrabhu? just attribution?

[Vaibhhav Sinha] Vaibhhav Sinha replied on Google+ with Nice post. I was rather pleased with the examples you threw at the...
#
KartikPrabhu
the link to Bridgy-copy seems to fail now for some reason
calumryan joined the channel
#
KartikPrabhu
maybe I should link it to Bridgy homepage :P
#
KartikPrabhu
after responses received from Bridgy I add a "via Bridgy" with the "Bridgy" linking to the Bridgy copy (ideally)
#
mblaney
aah I see. I like the idea that if bridgy is just a bridge, then it can be transparent and just point to either side.
#
mblaney
(no offence to bridgy)
#
KartikPrabhu
bridgy is a bridge! that's why it is a punny name ;)
j12t joined the channel
#
mblaney
yes I understand :-P but if you (or facebook) tell people I'm using a bridge then it removes part of the magic.
#
KartikPrabhu
it is ok if we know how magic works :P
#
mblaney
it's ok if we know, but somebody else reading my post on facebook isn't meant to know! otherwise it's not magic any more :-)
#
KartikPrabhu
mblaney: maybe it will inspire them toask you about it and they'll come over o the indieweb side
#
mblaney
yes that is the benefit of me losing my magic trick ;-)
#
KartikPrabhu
I refer you to Penn & Teller

Morning

good morning!
#
raziellight
So once your html has microformat markup what can you do with it
#
cweiske
use a lib to extract those data from the files
#
raziellight
ic
#
raziellight
Its an interesting idea ill have to ponder on it a bit in relation to my own project
#
raziellight
Holy cow it just hit me the power of this for a bookmarking app
#
raziellight
But i guess people would have to use the microformat hmm
#
KartikPrabhu
raziellight: the app could use the microformat
#
raziellight
Ya but wouldnt people all have to mark up their code
#
raziellight
Well there are tagging microformats in the wild hmm
#
KartikPrabhu
raziellight: maybe this is a better discussion on the #microformats channel
#
raziellight
Thx for the link this is def interesting to me
#
raziellight
Maybe!
