Topic Wiki

I figured that even this thread can have a wiki.
If your computer or phone is giving you issues:

• Please read this before posting: 4 Reasons Why IT People Ignore Your Requests for Help
• Restart the computer. Hopefully this will take care of any issues
• If your problem has not yet been solved, try to Google it. There may be a very simple solution
• On a Windows computer, a system restore may do the trick.
(This is a work in progress, please feel free to add whatever you may feel is helpful)


Please post whether or not the problem was fixed

how do you take these pictures ill show you i have only hebrew and english in the first part and 3 on the bottom of the screen

I use greenshot which takes screenshots and lets me upload them to imgur.

It's weird that they don't match, maybe try restarting your computer?

Either you can click the print screen on your desktop or laptop and then go to paint and paste the document and edit the document how you like. And from there upload it.
 I personally started using imggb.com which is amazing, very simple. Or like etech meantioned.

 Or another way, much easier is to press Windows key + shift and S , and your screen will dim and crop what you want and save and then upload to that site and share with the BBC link.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

how do i download embedded videos that are behind a paywall? most video grabbers don't seem to recognize that there is video because it's embedded from wistia
and the ones that do recognize load hundreds of .ts files, not one big file and they only load in real time as the video is playing
What site? Try to inspect element and search for mp4, Facebook, YouTube, follow the link and download from there. Select element and click video on screen go line by line through for a link and open it. If that doesn't work copy the webpage to vlc and record it, or screen capture it.

thanks it was in wistia so first had to find wistia video code, and then trace that to .bin file. and then convert to mp4

You are looking for a VPN. I don't know which are good but this thread might be helpful.

Probably can't use a VPN with the filter.

Have you asked Techloq? They have servers in the US as well (but it might be slower for you.)

Definitely ask Techloq for a US IP Address.
They recently got new servers in the US, the new servers make the speeds in  the US not any noticeably different than their UK servers.

I tried running crucial.com's system scanner (thinking about upgrading RAM and wanted to know which is compatible) and got this error:
Quote
Well, this is embarrassing! No system match was found. Somehow, a match for your system has eluded our industry-leading compatibility database. Our compatibility team will be searching for a solution if it is available, so check back soon! If you have questions or would like further support, please contact our support department.

Did that happen to anyone before? I'm pretty sure I've used it on this computer in the past. Should I be worried that something is wrong with the computer and that's why the scanner isn't working?

I need to get a computer with 6 screens to monitor multiple websites simultaneously.  Theres going to be a lot of heavy use of internet with a lot of auto refresh and I still need it to be blazing fast. What equipment do I need? I've been using Macbooks till now and would love to continue with that OS if possible.

Any help greatly appreciated!
