The Houston Computer History Museum is liquidating everything they have! If you are in the vicinity of Texas and enjoy old computers, go take a trip there and save a piece of history!

Also here’s the code I use to convert video I shoot on my phone for fedi:
30 FPS video:
ffpb -i input.mp4 -y -acodec copy -vcodec libx264 -f mp4 -filter:v scale=w="trunc(oh*a/2)*2:h=720" -b_strategy 1 -bf 16 -pix_fmt yuv420p -r 59.94 -g 119.88 -preset veryfast -movflags faststart output.mp4
60 FPS video:
ffpb -i input.mp4 -acodec copy -vcodec libx264 -f mp4 -filter:v scale=w="trunc(oh*a/2)*2:h=720" -b_strategy 1 -bf 16 -pix_fmt yuv420p -r 29.97 -g 59.94 -preset veryfast -movflags faststart output.mp4
This will provide really good compression and make streaming super easy.
I use termux and have ffmpeg installed. ffpb is an python ffmpeg wraper that just gives you a nice progress bar in the terminal. You can install it with pip install ffpb
@liaizon wow! i wouldn't really know what to choose, but i wouldn't want those devices to go to waste...
i'm curious: what computer(s) would you like to get from there?
@chirrolafupa I personally have way too many old computers in giant piles in my studio! but I would want all of them to be saved if possible cause there is nothing good about putting computers in landfills.
