>>2815251how'd you create this webm such that it exceeds the 5 minute limit?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_PYJYTicbE
>>2821030It's not that hard with just a single (or a couple) of still images at 1 fps to at least get a decent quality. But to get it uploaded with a longer duration than 5 Min you have to do a bit of hacking. I just changed the WebM container's (but of course not the actual video and audio stream) duration value to 5 Min with a hex editor. Because the board only checks for the container duration and not the actual video and audio stream, this works just fine. The longest WebM I did was around 44 Min long, but of course with a horrendous audio bitrate and sample rate to fit it into 4 MB.I already made a couple of posts how to hack a WebM (which is't hard at all).https://desuarchive.org/wsg/thread/2168279/#2210243
>>2821061test. looking at hex is frustrating
>>2821061>>2821454oh, it worked! i never worked with hex before. i just poked around, looking for "4489" and since there were so many matches i picked a spot at random and replaced the numbers following with "8840FD4C00". not sure what the proper way to do it is. anyway, it seems to show up here as having a duration of 6:01 whereas your webms show 5:00 and increase as it exceeds that. mine also takes time to load beforehand.what's your process like?i used ffmpeg to merge the audio and image files, copying the audio then usedhttps://github.com/Kagami/boramto do the converting to vp8/vorbismessing with some parameters, although i'm not really sure what they doedited the file with a hex editor and savedit all seems to have worked... but by trial and errorone more thing... off topic, but would you happen to know how webm related changes resolution? that's insane!
>>2821491I use FFmpeg directly via command line (w/o other tools) with a couple of presets (like videos with proper video and the audio ones with 1 fps) that I saved (also always 2-pass-encoding) and later use the HexEditor route.i.e. this one >>2821061>ffmpeg -sws_flags lanczos+accurate_rnd+full_chroma_int+full_chroma_inp -y -loop 1 -framerate 1 -i cover.jpg -i 02.\ Phezur\ -\ Dissolving\ The\ Sea\ Of\ Yetzirah.mp3 -map_metadata 1 -c:v libvpx -c:a libvorbis -b:v 5k -b:a 49.6k -t 10:43.08 -vf scale=480:-4 -pix_fmt yuv420p -shortest -threads 0 -pass 1 -f webm /dev/null && ffmpeg -sws_flags lanczos+accurate_rnd+full_chroma_int+full_chroma_inp -y -loop 1 -framerate 1 -i cover.jpg -i 02.\ Phezur\ -\ Dissolving\ The\ Sea\ Of\ Yetzirah.mp3 -map_metadata 1 -c:v libvpx -c:a libvorbis -b:v 5k -b:a 49.6k -t 10:43.08 -vf scale=480:-4 -pix_fmt yuv420p -shortest -threads 0 -pass 2 -metadata creation_time=$( date "+%FT%T%z" ) -metadata title="Mephorash - Phezur: Dissolving The Sea Of Yetzirah" "Mephorash - Phezur - Dissolving The Sea Of Yetzirah.webm"Shortened without the 2nd pass, metadata and other crap for better readability:>ffmpeg -loop 1 -framerate 1 -i cover.jpg -i 02.\ Phezur\ -\ Dissolving\ The\ Sea\ Of\ Yetzirah.mp3 -c:v libvpx -c:a libvorbis -b:v 5k -b:a 49.6k -t 10:43.08 -vf scale=480:-4 -pix_fmt yuv420p -shortest "Mephorash - Phezur - Dissolving The Sea Of Yetzirah.webm"btw. for hacking only the FIRST occurrence of 4489 is the right marker. Maybe it's easier for WebMs with a regular duration just to look for 448988, since this wouldn't show that many false positives, because just 4489 usually indeed can be found all over the place in a WebM by coincident.But I'm pretty sure the hacking part is already covered by some tools (maybe like this one >>2821454), but again I prefer to only use FFmpeg directly, since I already stumbled across faulty WebMs around hereI guess the aspect ratio of your video changed somehow. First Part is 16/9, Black Adder is 4/3.
>>2821766do you have a personal script? i've run across many wrapper programs based on ffmpeg written in a variety of languages. also do you calculate the bitrates manually?where'd you find out about this hack? i wondered if there was a way to edit the metadata using ffmpeg. couldn't find anything online, don't know what to search
>>2821936Nah, not really. I wanted to write one but then I noticed for my typical usage the command line parameters are almost the same. So I just use my two typical lines (for regular videos and the 1 fps audio ones) and set the small differences like trimming the start and end position, the audio and video bitrates, filters for scaling, cropping, subtitles or even fade in and out etc. by hand. So I just have a couple of snippets for special stuff that I just add when necessary, i. e. the subtitle stuff that I just can't memorize or like >>2820986 and >>2815249 adding a 1 ms frame of a still image from the video before the video starts to avoid a completely black preview image on 4c.And indeed to I usually calculate the starting parameters for the bitrates manually and raise or lower them to reach the max of 4MB if necessary. But I usually max out the file size, so most of my WebMs show up as 4MB big at 4c.My formula for the video bitrate is like this:>Target filesize in MB * 8192 / duration in seconds (- audio bitrate)I usually have a fixed set of bitrates for the audio that I use accordingly. if the sound isn't that important (of course not in this thread) I go as low as 45 kB/s (which ist the lowest possible setting if the audio has a 44,1 kHz sample rate. But again if I want to squeeze 8-10 min of audio into a WebM I have to use the lower bitrate spectrum too like above sample with 49.6k bitrate, which isn't optimal but necessary. I use those fractions only to max out the file size for maximum quality. Usually for short music WebMs I try to be as close as possible to the original audio bitrate of the source file (usually 96k to 128k for Youtube vids) since going higher than the source would be a waste of space, but usually for the longer WebMs I'm more into the 56k-80k range.For the audio only 1fps still image webMs luckily you can save space for the audio since at 1fps you only need a low video bitrate between 5-20 kB/s according to the resolution.
>>2821936Yes, you can edit the metadata with FFmpeg. It's just -metadata PARAM=Value, i.e. -metadata lyrics="abcde" (the WebM I just posted has lyric metadata) or -metadata comment="blah blah" or for 4chanX the most important metadata field -metadata title="Mephorash - 777: Third Woe" (I very often also put a link to the source video into the title field as well), but you can't manually change vital parameters like the duration via FFmpeg, since FFmpeg only produces valid video containers and sadly doesn't produce hacked ones.Some people managed to hack WebMs before I managed my way around it and I wanted to know too how it worked. I only got the vague hint "HexEditor" and "duration", so I looked up the specification of the MKV-Container format and looked for "duration", since WebM is indeed just an MKV-Container after all.https://matroska.org/technical/specs/index.htmlAnd it wasn't that hard to find out that you can just change the value of the duration with the HexEditor-method to trick the board into accepting longer WebMs. The hard part was finding out the correct values for the 5 Min, 2 Min or the "funny" 1 ms hack that breaks the player. Because I still don't understand how to actually exactly calculate the duration value (according to the mkv documentation: "Duration of the Segment in nanoseconds based on TimestampScale") I just used a trial and error method buy slight changing a regular WebM until I had the correct Hex values.
>>2821061Motherfucker. That webm actually manages to crash my browser tab. Good work.
new Sabaton single https://files.catbox.moe/f2vx69.mp4
>>2825070I never experienced any crashes via WebMs. The only visible problems are a couple of faulty WebMs that can't be seeked, which get posted around here quite frequently. But those don't crash the browser either but just exit with an error messages ("Error: Corrupt or unplayable video" like >>2820704 ) when trying to do so. I guess there are a couple of encoding tools out there that produce faulty WebMs. Judging from the metadata of the faulty vid above it's "WonderShare Matroska Muxer" and some other tools too that produce those non-seekable faulty WebMs.Like I wrote above I always use the de-facto standard of FFmpeg without any intermediate tools. And the little bit of hacking usually doesn't make the WebMs unstable. The player (and luckily the board, since that's the whole point of it) just trusts the (hacked) duration from the container entry, but continues playing those videos regardless when the actual video and audio stream exceed the container duration. Only the timeline can look a bit weird when the actual duration of the video exceeds the container entry and gets corrected on the fly. I didn't even experienced any crashes when making those WebMs with a hacked duration of just 1 ms that fuck up the players timeline quite nicely (like >>2824374 ).

>>2850699>>2850715love me some Jornkino
>>2858212Huh this actually sounds kinda good, pretty surprising after the shit they put out the last years, vocalist even sounds like Landfermann
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsr0pwihGto>>2858489The new vocalist since the last album is Yvonne "Onielar" Wilczynska from Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult. And indeed is she very close to the singing style of Landfermann. She does a really great job. Which is kinda funny after hearing what Niklas Kvarforth did for the band a bit earlier. He might be a huge fan of the band, after all Bethlehem is one of the main inspirations for the whole Depressive Suicidal Black Metal Genre, but boy did his vocals suck for the two album he was the vocalist for Bethlehem. I like his other stuff, but his vocals for Bethlehem were absolutely horrible. I also prefer the german vocals as strangely cryptic as they might be and despite not being Onielars mothers tongue (she's polish) she does a fantastic job pronouncing the very often seemingly nonsensical lyrics. But Kvarforth's german is laughably bad (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYLdp8RgU5E) , so they went back to english lyrics like on their first album.
>>2859397Nice, I'm very picky when it comes to BM vocals and I really enjoy the howling kind of sound. Didn't even notice an accent, I'm pretty sure she must be fluent.
Yo don't tell the mods there is a penis in this one, i just need to host it somewhere.
>>2862888Her's the original music video that I encoded a while ago.

>>2822906I like it
>>2815249Panzer Division Marduk is one of the shittiest bm albums of all time.
>>2909224Oh it looks like some "expert" knows some Black Metal...Too bad that "Slay the Nazarene" isn't from the album "Panzer Division Marduk" but from "Nightwing" instead.But this song is from Panzer Division and it's still awesome.

>>2852569People hate her bcs she's kind of a poser surfing on the whole "feminist black metal" vibe to get mor audiance. But I do think her music is pretty good and kind of unique.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgzM0tvPYDUThe Burzums was the musical project by Charlie "Varg" Vikernes. It began during 1961 in Bergen, California and quickly became prominent within the early Californian surf scene. During 1962 and 1963, The Burzums recorded four albums; however, in 1964 Vikernes was convicted and imprisoned for using cuss words in public to describe guitarist Oystein "Euronymous" Aarseth, and the mild intimidation of the congregations of several milk bars and several churches. While imprisoned, Vikernes recorded two really poor albums in the dark ambient surf style. Dunkelheit first featured on the Burzums' legendary surf LP Filosofem (literally "Surf's Up" in English) recorded on a low budget in the back of a surf shop in Bergen, California using an Edison Phonograph, the cheapest instruments available to Varg and other awesome gadgets to get that famously warm Trve Kvlt sound of sand, sun and surf.
>>2862902Welcome to the slingshot channel.
>>2815249Is this actually just ironic edgy crypto-Christian?
>>2939899I heard people call Marduk all sorts of things (positive or negative), but calling them christian or maybe ironic crypto-christian that's something nobody ever said about the band. Last time I checked they still played Black Metal and not Unblack Metal.
>>2941759Got any recs for unblack or white? Not that I'm particularly spiritual, but at this point I'm counter-contrarian and have been interested in Christian dialectics. Would love to hear an odd dichotomy, especially hopeful-sounding black metal (if there is such a thing),
>>2942449I'm not sure. The closest thing to such "Unblack Metal" that I actually listened to was Reverorum ib Malacht, yet the band doesn't identify with that genre, despite (according to the metal-achieves) playing black metal with "Catholic Christianity, Theology" themes.Well, one time I also accidentally visited an Unblack/Christian Metal gig (Fear Dark Festival) with a couple of bands of that genres (Crimson Moonlight, Immortal Souls, Kekal, Morphia, Sacrificium, Brainfaq - I still have all the tickets to the gigs I went to). Accidentally because I trusted one of my friends that this was a regular metal gig. But he obviously misread the flyer and so the two of us at this gig were walking between stands promoting various Unblack Metal and christian Metal bands. Btw the music wasn't that bad after all. Judging from the shirts of the other guys there, most of them were affiliated with the fucking Jesus Freaks of all people. And we were the only ones wearing actual black metal shirts, inverted crosses, pentagrams and all. Maybe he even wore this >>2941759 Marduk shirt, but I'm not quite sure, since a couple of years passed since.
>>2922006Nice to know Burzum was the inspiration for the James Bond theme..
>>2955128Fick dich selbst du Hurensohn
Could somebody recommend me some funeral doom metal or something close to it? Something that is slower and lower, atmospheric and emotional and or just droning on. Few examples would be: Shape of Despair - Monotony Fields, NADJA - Touched, maybe even something like, Akhlys - The Dreaming since it has lots of atmosphere despite being faster.I think my favorite song that would fall into this genre of music i'm looking for is, "The Blank Journey" by Shape of Despair.https://youtu.be/bc8Ntu0n4NkThank you in advance to anyone who is willing to help me out with a few suggestions/recommendations!
Anyone have thoughts on the new Sabaton album?
>>2956610I wouldn't ask that here, 4chan in general doesnt seem to care much for power metal. Though I personally thought it was just OK compared to their previous works. Last Stand is still my favorite album and I listen to a song off that album at least once a day.
>>2957809I pretty much only see power metal threads on /v/.
>>2936158>plebs>posts babbies first melodeath
>>2956597IMO the king of funeral doom with a very strong black metal edge (DSBM of course) is Nortt from denmark.
>>2956597More traditional funeral doom (and less DSBM like Nortt) I like is Ahab.
>>2815300Super overlooked band desu
>>2921747Absolute fuckin legends
>>2936131ridiculously talented dude
>>2969918shut up gay
>>2865817>>2872636top tier shit man
Give me some power, heavy or speed, boys.
>>2970182Whats the song at the end?
>>2816825this is good
Filesize limit bumped to 6MB, based mods
>>2976098OP here. (btw. aside from the Power, Hair and Thrash Metal songs and the mash-up stuff almost all the songs in this thread were posted by me, that's also the reason why it's kinda one sided genre-wise)Now I can finally post a song that I always wanted to encode, but only 4MB wasn't enough to encode the whole 12 min without reducing the bitrate (and maybe even sample rate) until it sounded like crap. The bitrate is still on the lower spectrum, but not as bad as I would've to reduce it with just 4MB.
>>2982570Thats fucking hectic.I love shit like this.What band is this?
henlo i wil post my favorites no hate plz
>>2982767Not that fag who posted it without the title but it's death of teyolia-gravemind
>>2984636Their first album was better. The saviour of their genre
>>2956597I don't have any WEBMs of what you might be looking for but I can hook you up. I love Ea, they are droning but still got some more "shit going on".https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61XPXUY-WPEWhen I crave Funeral Doom or real droning stuff it's deffo Bell Witch. It's pretty emotional too.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1GgfPFJTNoIf you want something very aggressive/emotional, Primitive Man does the job. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkIW8pcJ1NoYou want to feel existential dread? Cult of Occult but it's leaving the funeral doom genre and going more into others.https://youtu.be/yCsG0OZt-UgI'm not sure if you could call this the *genre* funeral doom, but I would call it doom fitting a funeral. https://youtu.be/2FMr61LyEV0>>2992662Not Funeral Doom but Kino af. I fucking love My Dying Bride, and seeing them live years ago was amazing. Also here's an amazing underrated piece of Doom metal.https://youtu.be/5MDsV7cnXK0
