Just upgraded to mpv 0.25. Immediately noticed a bunch of feature deprecations. The 'volume' audio filter and most of the mpv native video filters have been removed (including 'yadif'). The --dvd-* options have also been removed. Major bummer.

The 'volume' audio filter was how you enabled replaygain; now there's no way to access that functionality. It looks like there will be a new option in 0.26 specifically for that.

Checking now I see 0.25 was released 7 days ago, so this is old news.'s avatar image // / 10462 Origin link. Source file.

I'm a DJ and burned-out sysadmin. Casual fan of cyberpunk fiction, old anime, and shell scripting. Serious fan of electronic music. Linux & BSD user. I tell pointless, long-winded stories when I drink.

You can find me here on SDF's mastodon instance, on SDF IRC under this same name, and sometimes on com. I have too much free time.

MTT No. 007 / A Little Basic

MTT007 Spectrogram

Dub Techno this week. My connection to aNONradio dropped near the end of this mix, so, unfortunately, there's about 5 minutes worth of "Vitamin" by Kraftwerk shoved between the last two tracks. Because of that I'm not linking to the recording here; it can be found at (fished out of) the aNONradio archives.

This show (like most of MTT Year 1) is no longer available for download here. Get in touch with me at the email address listed at the top of this page if you want a copy of it.

Odin Photon Space Sailer Starlight

Odin: Photon Space Sailer Starlight, 1985. Taped off the Sci-Fi channel some time in the '90s. Subsequently copied and recopied; screenshots below are from a digital recording of a beat up EP mode VHS tape.

An infamously bad movie with some beautiful visuals. Remembered as a boring rehash of ideas and imagery better presented in Space Battleship Yamato. Features a couple of songs ("Gotta Fight", "Odin") by Loudness.

See the Anime World Order podcast for a great discussion of this movie (and how terrible it is).
