[haiku-development] Reset my Trac passport? (Michael Crawford)

Wed, 2015-01-28 04:45
Long Time No See, I'd like to get back into Haiku development after a long hiatus. I have a few tickets in Trac under the account MichaelCrawford. I have both forgotten my Trac password, and due to cash flow problems, lost a whole bunch of domain names. Quite likely I lost the domain for the password with which I originally registered. Would someone be willing to reset my password so I can keep using the ...

[haiku-development] Re: New BMediaRecorder class (Barrett)

Wed, 2015-01-28 04:45
Hello, If I remember right you mentioned that you might change BMediaRecorder to derive from BMediaFilter once that's written? This is an option i'm seriously evaluating, what is certain is that the BMediaNode behind will be shared as you can safely declare it being only a BBufferProducer even if it can also work as consumer, so the media_server ...

A third class to complete the set i've think of is BMediaFilter which i plan to use as the SoundRecorder core being a mixed producer/consumer. The general idea is to make more accessible the media kit features as the nodes are pretty complex. If I remember right you mentioned that you might change BMediaRecorder to derive from BMediaFilter once that's written? If so I'll wait until that after to make it public, as that's likely to entail a few API and ...
