How to watch videos in Linux console with the help of MPlayer
Linux console is something really special: someone is afraid of it, someone can’t work without it, and someone listens to the radio and watches videos with the help of it. Agree, it may sound strange, but you may watch videos without GUI. And MPlayer will be your assistant. MPlayer is a powerful multimedia player for GNU Linux. You may ask what do we need that for? Well, the first reason is to show Linux capabilities, and then, you never know what you might need. So, here we go. The first thing we need to do is to set up a framebuffer and add a user (the user which is registered in the system) in the group ‘video’ in order for MPlayer to be able to show media on your screen without asking for administrative right every time.

Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail is finally here…
Ubuntu – one of the most favourite distribution channels for Linux worldwide. It has just recently released its latest version of the operating system. It’s called Ubuntu 13.04, that’s what all us geeks call it. Still, we like to tease it once in a while using its alliterative nick “Raring Ringtail” – the names get as ridiculous over time as better the system gets. As you must already know, Ubuntu is developed as a mainstream Linux distribution by a community of developers. Their main aim is to make it easier for everyone to have free software to use. Once upon a time, this was just a dream. Still, in the most recent years, it has become quite possible to have open-source OS on your computer. This is obviously considering those of us who have lost any ability to master new […]
MiniClip games sale for Windows Phones…
MiniClip, as many of you might know, was once a site that hosted an array of flash games. It was a go-to site for anyone that might want to use the internet for any other than the purpose it was meant for – a collaborative repository of information; and no, I don’t believe I was being completely honest when I said this. The site has lost its appeal over time as a large user base made way for better gaming technologies that almost killed flash. MiniClip has partially kept pace with the changing times and have come up with its popular titles that natively work on iOS and Android. Their 5 well known titles from MiniClip Games have made it to Windows Phone with XBOX achievements. As XBOX games, these titles continued be played by those aware of its popularity […]
Windows XBOX Games sale…
When it comes to gaming, I’ve never ever done it just for fun or “for the sheer hell(read ‘sake’) of it”. It has always been about making a mark in the gaming community. There always has to be a sense of accomplishment, even though it might mean absolutely nothing in real life. Games, by themselves, come and go every so often, but there has to be something out of it that stays with us for the rest of our lives… or till we forget the password of our gaming accounts. XBOX has done this via the Gamerscore, while PS does this using Trophies, Steam via Achievements and iOS GameCenter via “points”. There are people all over the world with a set quota on how much to spend on games per month, and then there’s us – nothing wrong with it, […]
How to Choose Free Database Software
There’s no shortage of free database software on the Internet, and many of them are as powerful as commercially available applications, without the price tag. But if you’ve got a business and need a database solution, which one do you turn to? Here are some suggestions to help narrow your choices down. Desktop and Server Databases Database programs can be divided into two categories: desktop and server.

Why Am I Still Spending Money on Anti-Virus Software ?
If you’re asking yourself that question, possibly while slamming your head against a keyboard as your screen fills up with horrifying explicit ads or your World of Warcraft account has gotten hacked, the fact of the matter is, most users don’t require a high-end anti-virus, anti-spyware, or anti-malware program for their day-to-day lives. There are several great options for free, generally as a trial or basic program, as well as the more hands-on approach. One word of warning before continuing: It is NEVER a good idea to torrent, pirate, or illegally download or crack your anti-virus software.In addition to being highly ironic, it’s an even better way to get your computer trashed by built-in countermeasures. A: The Hands on Approach Many websites, such as Trend Micro and F-safe, offer individual rootkit and malware destroying files. If you only have one […]
