Well, it's about time.

Thanks, yeah, I knew the naming conventions (I had renamed the file to meet them). What was cool was that Plex broke the single file out and the user sees them as two separate episodes (though it's the same, single avi file).

Oh. Sorry for assuming then.

But that raises a different question - the metadata doesn't reliably know the episode time breaks. How does it know where one episode ends and the second starts? TVDB doesn't have that info AFAIK and even if it did, there are, um, variability issues, based on the source of the material. Did you tell it where to split the times too?

No, that's the crazy thing. I just thought Plex would show it as one episode. I'll find a place to post and link to a screenshot.

iFlicks is very good with that stuff too.

Does iFlicks have a home server component?

No, iFlicks2 just integrates very well with iTunes. Or more accurately, does what iTunes should do.

If you have a file you want to import into your iTunes TV or movie library, it'll add all the metadata, artwork and all the other stuff iTunes is too retarded to.

It's got a pretty decent file conversion system for other formats/containers like mkv or avi. Good enough I don't bother with Handbrake any more. Also has drag & drop soft subtitles.

Best $20 I've spent in a while.

(I bet spork will think this post is spam)

Oh, I have no interest in that. I have an AppleTV, but we never use it. We only use the two Rokus in our house. Thanks though!

I thought for sure Cleanmymac had lost its mind when it told me that Google Chrome was taking 20GB within the App.

Um, no.

Yet another reason there's no Chrome on my machine (though I've had good luck with Brave, which uses some of the underlying tech but promises privacy).

At the end of that article it says the problem is caused by a plugin breaking permissions so the Chrome Updater can't remove the older versions which then pile up.

I don't ever recall installing that plugin.

Ever since installing Mac OS Sierra I have been plagued with slow performance on my Synology along with random disconnects, the inability to connect afterwards, and general gremlins.

On the basis of an emerging consensus on those boards, this morning i disabled SMB on the Synology. Now I only use AFP to connect.

My problems are gone. The NAS is about twice as fast. i don't have to worry about losing the connection. I think that even the beachballing is better or gone entirely.

Here's the kicker: AFP is deprecated in Sierra.

Why the fuck Apple, why?

Isn't SMB also deprecated?

I don't think so. That would make them useless in pretty much every large enterprise.

SMB on the Mac, I mean.

Yes, I've been DYING from Synology and SMB lately.
I think it's gotten better, though.

That's what I meant, too. Apple wouldn't seriously consider making Macs incompatible with pretty much every network file share in every major company, would they?
