Atma hat nun die Dateien in den Folder auf ATI.eu abgeschickt, läßt es über Nacht laufen wie es laufen soll.
Morgen wahrscheinlich früh aufbrechend, und ev. keinen Strom habend, läßt Atma die Dinge der Sangha, so auch das Tablet, hier zurück. Chanroth ist soweit infomiert, daß es gut wäre sich um die Dinge hier in jedem Fall, für die Sangha zu kümmern. Wie auch der Dorfchef, ebenfalls in Kenntnis gebracht.

Mag sein, daß Atma vor dem ersten Regenzeitantritt hier wieder zurück ist und sich meldet.

Möge das was für die Sangha der Schüler Buddhas gut ist, gut dort ankommen wo es gut ist.

Höchsten Segen (Ermutigung).

Upload via portal is running for the first file. Althought in the best way supported by the Devas, and good connection even it does not break up, the sky, heavy bedrängt by opposer andthe host of Mara, it might need a while.

The other upload interface is also working now.
No, it was actually not working. But now it should be.  ^-^

Oh, yes, that is easier. I thought Bhante only has possibility to use FTP, and no SSH or SFTP.
I sent you the server name and password.

The other upload interface is also working now. But maybe SFTP is more comfortable.

Currently, the upload directory that is used by test.accesstoinsight.eu/files is in vhosts/default/uploads

(Whatever files in there currently can be deleted.)

Connection and Air is fine and prepared. If it is possible to connect via sftp that should be fine.

Atma tries such by using sftp://test.accesstoinsight.eu/files
Port 22

I just noticed something that I should improve.

Maybe the upload function is quite useless at the moment for big files and a bad internet connection:

When starting the upload (clicking on "send" or "submit" or something), there is no visible sign that anything happens.

Only when the upload is finished, the files appear in the list at the bottom (marked with green background for new files, blue background for overwritten).

For large files, especially with a slow internet connection, that could of course take hours, and there is no indication how much more time it might take at the moment, and would require an almost unbroken connection all the time. (It would tolerate only very short times of lost connection.) If an error happens, there is no notice at the moment, and the upload simply will not get finished.


So maybe it is not really worth wasting time now to try to upload this way at the moment. The sky devas might have troubles.

I'm trying to add something for showing the progress and allowing for longer broken connections and resuming partial uploads.

Sadhu. Let's see if the Air-Devas will support it well with sun shine and best Air for highspeed upload, Nyom Moritz.

(just to inform, sms has not been delivered yet, but it happens that such may arrive also days later, with global aramika or admin permissions, he might be able to send a PM with the current settings, to use it just for uploading them, and return it in his guardiance for the Sangha, the key)

PM has been sent. Hope this is working.

The interface is very simple. It is possible to select multiple files for upload (simply select all files wished when the upload dialog opens). But I just noticed this might not really work on mobile. Or at least I don't understand how to do this on the android phone here.

List of uploaded files should show number of files at the top, number of new files added while having the site opened, and number of files overwritten (re-uploaded).

In the list of uploaded files (the bottom part), newly uploaded files are marked green, overwritten files are marked as blue. Clicking on a file in the list should download it.

What ever Nyom likes to perform there with it, that he thinks that is good and allowed to take and use, he may do.

Practical report: Upload via media manager (http://accesstoinsight.eu/doku.php?id=km:tipitaka:audiobooks&do=media&ns=km%3Atipitaka) would not work since amr is not supported.

If uploading a file via ftp or copy others as the supported file, they would be linked just as normal link (speak no player or display with extention icon).
Oh yes, that is because .amr is not supported inside standard HTML5 browser player. (Maybe this would change some day with the next standard.)

For .amr to be playable inside the browser one would need to have an own .amr player integrated somehow, as Adobe Flash, Java Applet or similar stuff. I have not found such an applet yet. And use of such techniques are not really common anymore and not well and universally supported. Most things nowadays are simply done with standard HTML5 and JavaScript. But HTML5 does not (yet) support .amr audio.
Another advantage maybe for .mp3.

Actually, there is plenty space available now. It is just not yet well arranged. Apart from the Greensta space there are 20 GB at test.accesstoinsight.eu, hosted at Gandi.net.

I have just sent the password for the upload interface at test.accesstoinsight.eu/files in an SMS. So Bhante could upload everything unconverted there if you want.

I could convert everything to .amr or .mp3 with less quality to accesstoinsight.eu.

Actually the sample Bhante gave of trying to convert to mp3 of lower quality was not the best one. The original file was mono and the converted (lower quality) file was stereo. So it had double the size as necessary for this quality, using two audio channels carrying the same signal.
Also, from what I've tried, keeping 22.05kHz sample rate (while still keeping the same compression rate) sounds better than lowering to 8000 Hz.

But still I think no more than 30% size reduction would be good for .mp3. Anything lower is not good.
.amr is better at this compression rate, being specialized for voice audio. I think the 30% reduced .mp3 sample I have here actually sounds very similar in quality to the .amr.

(File attached, 'mp3-noisereduced-16.mp3', compared with previous 'noisereduced.amr' file, I think the quality is nearly equal. There is also another file attached: 'mp3-noisereduced-24.mp3' is the same file size as the original mp3, but sounds clearer after reducing background-noise.)

My person will try to upload book 1 as jep and amr in the mediafolder corresponding to ថត សម្លេង ព្រះត្រៃបិដកភាសាខ្មែរ .

I think it would be good to upload anything not-yet-converted to test.accesstoinsight.eu. I could convert everything from there and also apply noise reduction, and then upload to accesstoinsight.eu.

Regarding this new domain: The webspace is hosted on Gandi.net, which I had registered some time ago, without any intention to do anything with it, and I have no other use for it now.

Actually there would be enough space to host them in original quality (maybe improved with noise reduction). It is only not yet well organized.

The domain is named test.accesstoinsight.eu, but it could also be named to everything else, like media.sangham.net. The actual name is "moralhighground.org", and test.accesstoinsight.eu is now pointing to that. (I just wanted to test out how this works for now.)

At the moment I only thought of it as an easy way to upload files in full quality to a place where I could download and convert them from.
I could also make the list of downloads there not password protected (and only the upload). It was just a quicker and simpler to do it this way now.

I actually I registered it some months ago with no intention to do anything specific with it, but with a thought that maybe if at some point, if something might be needed which is not available at Greensta, this could be useful for things around sangham.net as well.
It is a very different kind of server, running Node.js instead of PHP. So there are different tools available which could be helpful for some other things.
May the Sangha make use of it for whatever useful purpose.

Sadhu

Converting by my person would take about a month. If upload is possible there, it might be much faster, depending on the Devas .

How would it work? Is it to connect via explore as a network having the access datas?

Or maybe even more easier, Nyom could ask Nyom Norum as she might have a copy, even better copy.

Sadhu for all the zuvorkommenden thought. My Person thinks, that large soundtechnical improvements need a lot of time and effort, remembering some 12 or more years back, something in the area of 1 to to times of the playtime and we talk about more then 1200h !

Wenn ever possible: my person will try to make the Spaceabount a half and then but it into the mediasection. There is the no limitation of what ever one may feel inspired to give.

If wanting to upload Tipitaka audio, there is 20 GB of space available now at test.accesstoinsight.eu. Upload is possible at test.accesstoinsight.eu/files . Not connected to the DokuWiki or anything else for now, but just a simple interface to upload, and easy for me to move it from there everywhere else, convert it, improve it, etc. (No upload by FTP as usual, because it is not hosted at Greensta.)
So Bhante, if you want, you could simply upload there and I could do the rest. If thinking that reducing size to 50% by converting to .amr is good, this could be quickly done herehalf-automatically by me. But there would also be enough space still to keep the unconverted original beside it and try some other conversions.
For now, the files uploaded there are not publically visible and there is password protection to get to the upload interface.
I will send the password by SMS later.

But one could possibly reduce the background static (Hintergrundrauschen) before converting to .amr (sample attached).

But not sure if that would be a great improvement and help make it easier to understand what is spoken, or if possibly even something could get lost while cutting of "noise".
