Primary Buffer Panel – The On A PC For More Immersion In Pew Pew

A glorified joystick controller with an LCD (‘MFD’) and plenty of RGB.

I’m kinda blind by now after hacking away on this page for days so I’d appreciate feedback.

Especially if something is broken.

  1. @bekopharm Looks amazing!It would be brilliant if the main image on the front page was animated – or a video. Would give it an immediate “wow” factor.I’d also put V2 above V1 in the side panel. Makes it easier to see what’s newest.

  2. @bekopharm It’s super slow for me. Maybe you are being hugged to death right now?Weirdly, the mp4 player and preview loads in it’s own page just fine.https://linux.simpit.dev/fly-dangerous-with-vf1-simpit.mp4And when I clicked play, it was only a few seconds to start, but then kept buffering every few seconds.You are the only one to know what, if anything this all means! 🙂 BTW, it looks very cool indeed! I’ve seen some progress fotos from you in the past. Bravo!I’m sure things will all work out fine.I really want to see this done! and i’m not a gamer – not even a little bit 🙂 @stefan

  3. @bekopharm about peertube, on my little instance, i’m pretty sure the default/recommended was ‘webtorrent’ back when I installed it – or maybe I just chose it, because I like the concept of torrenting 🙂 I don’t know, but it was slow as death and only useful to download with, until I changed the transcoding to HLS with PTP support. But that only effected newly uploaded and transcoded vids. The older ones are still dog slow, of course.Anyhow, love your project. Will you be filling in the rest of the ‘firewall’ below the monitors and so on?

  4. @Billie @martijn @bekopharm Yes, the options for detecting the various ad-blocking mechanisms are a bit limited.In the current implementation I am trying make the note look like an ad, mostly using CSS classes commonly used by real ads.This approach doesn’t work for DNS-based solutions, but there’s a few other issues, all documented here:https://github.com/stefanbohacek/detect-missing-adblocker/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aopen+sort%3Aupdated-desc+label%3Aad-detection

  5. Ah yes, nothing like a last minute blooper introducing 3.5MB for nothing 🤦‍♂️

    Anyway, fixed this one. I’ll take a closer look at other file sizes tomorrow 🥱
