  1. When asking for help, please state:
    a) Your Windows OS (Operating System) Version
    and
    b) Windows build number
    and
    c) Which part (command) of this guide did not work for you
    and
    d) What "exactly" have you done/tried to get it to work


    Code:
    winver
    you could also try:
    Code:
    systeminfo /fo csv | ConvertFrom-Csv | select OS*, System*, Hotfix* | Format-List
    (Win 11 is Win 10 with 11 sticker on it :)
    Code:
    Get-ComputerInfo | select WindowsProductName, OsOperatingSystemSKU, OsName | fl


    Out of support versions are difficult to support,
    (and luck some of the tools used in this guide)
    so please consider running "Up to date" version of Window$
    or use VM = Virtual Machine running latest build of Window$ 10/11

    (Window$ 10 64-Bit will take 24GB+ of space, to be on the safe side 30GB of your VM space ...)
    - If you want to compile N-m3u8DL-RE yourself
    -- cca. 2.54GB for Windows Software Development Kit
    -- cca. 1GB for .NET Installation



    There is no need to sent me
    "PM's" = Private Messages,
    I will ignore them and not respond.
    Instead post in this thread answering
    the above a) + b) + c) and d) questions
    when posting ;)





    Here is a Video "KVM-Win10-Video.H.265.mp4"
    (cca 15min and 82M in size H.265 recorded on fresh Win10 system)
    showing how to install dependencies that will work with the other projects on this Forum
    easily from the CLI just copy and paste ..... ;)

    There are 2 levels of privileges when running CLI/prompt (in WT, PS, CMD):

    1) - User level: WinKey+x +i

    2) - Elevated or Administrator level: WinKey+x +a


    CLI = prompt:
    - Windows Terminal = WT
    - Command Prompt = CMD
    - PowerShell = PS






    The "Elevated or Administrator level" should only be used to un-install APPs/Programs, configure Windows....


    (Elevated or Administrator privilege prompt can be identified in the TOP "left" corner of the CLI/Windows Terminal/PS/CMD) with "Administrator" prefix.


    # Elevated/Administrator level privilege prompt/CLI (WT, PS or CMD) is NEEDED for:
    - Installing APPlications using WinGet = App Installer = Windows Package Manager from PS
    - Installing EXEcutable files using PS (PowerShell)
    - Copying BINary files (pre-compiled Windows files) to system folder/DIRectory in: C:\Windows\System32\



    Copy the Code:
    Highlight the whole code/line and press and hold on your keyboard = Ctrl key plus letter "c"


    Paste the Code into your PS:
    Press and hold on your keyboard = Ctrl key plus letter "v"

    (You can also use the Click, Click, Click method that is slightly longer)...





    # Install from PowerShell (PS):
    # (Open elevated/Administrator PS = Power Shell)

    Code:
    WinKey+x + a
    # (Confirm with)
    Code:
    Alt + y
    or click on
    Code:
    "Yes"

    .
    # If your versions of Windows opens-up "Administrator" CMD prompt, just type:
    Code:
    powershell
    [Enter]
    and it will change to:
    PS C:\...


    .
    # If the above did not work for you,
    TRY Alternative to get PS "Administrator" prompt:

    Code:
    WinKey + r
    Then type in:
    Code:
    powershell
    and PRESS on your keyboard:
    Code:
    Ctrl + Shift + ENTER
    # (Confirm with)
    Code:
    Alt + y
    or click on
    Code:
    "Yes"

    # WinGet | App Installer | Windows Package Manager
    ########
    # https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Package_Manager

    # Windows Package Manager or Winget, is a tool that allows you to manage software packages on your Windows 11.
    # (The winget tool is supported on Windows 10, version 1809 (build 17763) and above.)

    # App Installer = WinGet = Windows Package Manager
    https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9NBLGGH4NNS1



    Windows 11 comes with Winget, it just needs updating......

    # Check your Windows Version
    Code:
    [System.Environment]::OSVersion.Version
    Windows 11 may already have a WinGet installed, check:
    Code:
    winget --info
    # Removes the pre-installed version of the Microsoft Store app,
    # which includes the App Installer package that contains winget.
    Code:
    Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.DesktopAppInstaller | Remove-AppxPackage
    # This command will open the Microsoft Store app page for the App Installer package aka WinGet/Windows Package Manager.
    Code:
    start ms-windows-store://pdp/?productid=9nblggh4nns1
    #
    # Click on the "Get" or "Install" button to get/install it.


    #Check it's working:
    Code:
    winget --version

    https://docs.python.org/3/installing/index.html#key-terms
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    # PIP
    - the preferred installer program. (the package installer for Python.)
    Starting with Python 3.4, it is included by default with the Python binary installers.
    https://pypi.org/project/pip/


    # Virtual Environment
    - a semi-isolated Python environment that allows packages to be installed for use by a particular application,
    rather than being installed system wide.

    You are asking, why use Virtual Environment?
    In plain English, if you are installing two python projects and both are using
    same dependency (but with different versions = older and newer etc.)
    that would create a conflict ...... Virtual Environment makes sure you do not to have Python dependency conflicts ;)


    # VENV
    - the standard tool for creating virtual environments,
    and has been part of Python since Python 3.3. Starting with Python 3.4,
    it defaults to installing pip into all created virtual environments.
    #Create
    Code:
    py -m venv env
    #Activate
    Code:
    .\env\Scripts\activate

    # VirtualEnv
    - a third party alternative (and predecessor) to venv.
    It allows virtual environments to be used on versions of Python prior to 3.4,
    which either donít provide venv at all, or arenít able to automatically install pip into created environments.


    # PyPI
    - Python Package Index is a public repository of open source licensed packages
    made available for use by other Python users.
    https://pypi.org/


    # PyPA
    - Python Packaging Authority is the group of developers and documentation authors
    responsible for the maintenance and evolution of the standard packaging tools
    and the associated metadata and file format standards.
    https://www.pypa.io/


    # Poetry
    - Alternative to VENV
    Python packaging and dependency management made easy
    https://python-poetry.org/
    https://python-poetry.org/docs/basic-usage/#activating-the-virtual-environment
    https://python-poetry.org/docs/cli/
    https://pypi.org/project/poetry/

    # Install Poetry ("-3.12" you have Multiple Major Versions of Python Package and want to use version 3.12):
    Code:
    py -3.12 -m pip install poetry
    # Check your version:
    Code:
    py -3.12 -m poetry -V
    # Create the "virtualenv" inside the projectís root directory
    Code:
    py -3.12 -m poetry config virtualenvs.in-project true
    # Reads the pyproject.toml file from the current project, resolves the dependencies, and installs them.
    Code:
    py -3.12 -m poetry install
    # Spawns a shell within the projectís virtual environment.
    Code:
    py -3.12 -m poetry shell

    # Pipenv
    - a Python virtualenv management tool that supports a multitude of systems and nicely bridges the gaps between pip,
    python (using system python, pyenv or asdf) and virtualenv.
    Linux, macOS, and Windows are all first-class citizens in pipenv.

    to the command during this process ;)


    I have created this "Guide" + the "Video" to help those

    if you fail to follow this guide things will not work for you
    and I will not respond to your posts.


    Please take time reading the above information,
    I did so as well and it's taken me few days to produce the above

  4. MPV is another great player, but not easily installed...

    Can anyone here think of any "easier"
    way to get the MPV installed from Power Shell on Win?


    I wanted to add it to "Optional" downloads,
    but I think my sollution is bit cumbersome and does not allow to install "LATEST" version.


    I have checked and MPV is not in Windows Package Manager REPOsitory..
    Code:
    winget search mpv
    And there is MPV.net entry there, but MPV uses mpv.io and also
    showing version 7.1.1.0
    but current MPV version is:

    Code:
    mpv --version
    mpv v0.38.0-63-gb364e4a6 Copyright © 2000-2024 mpv/MPlayer/mplayer2 projects
     built on Apr 21 2024 00:06:58
    libplacebo version: v7.349.0 (v6.338.0-124-gd0eb997-dirty)
    FFmpeg version: N-114900-ga44c34631
    FFmpeg library versions:
       libavutil       59.15.100
       libavcodec      61.5.103
       libavformat     61.3.100
       libswscale      8.2.100
       libavfilter     10.2.101
       libswresample   5.2.100


    What is also annoying is that MPV Windows builds by shinchiro offer
    two versions x86_64 and x86_64-v3 and the difference is:

    x86_64-v3 build have these CPU instructions enabled by default:
    avx avx2 bmi bmi2 fma lzcnt movbe sse3 sse4 sse4.1 sse4.2 ssse3 xsave sahf mwait crc32 cx16 popcnt f16c
    CPU which dont have these "CPU Instructions" features will fail to launch the x86_64-v3 build.

    So perhaps even checking "CPU Instructions set for your processor" before downloading?


    Here is what I have come up with:
    # Download MPV Video Player:
    Code:
    aria2c https://sourceforge.net/projects/mpv-player-windows/files/64bit-v3/mpv-x86_64-v3-20240421-git-b364e4a.7z/download --dir $home\Downloads
    tar -tzf $home\Downloads\mpv-x86_64-v3-20240421-git-b364e4a.7z | findstr .exe
    tar -xzvf $home\Downloads\mpv-x86_64-v3-20240421-git-b364e4a.7z -C C:\Windows\System32\ *.exe *.dll

    #There is an option to install MPV using "chocolatey.org", but I am not an Windows user
    so not sure how prelevant is use of chocolatey (But it looks easy enough)
    but would it caused any problems if WinGet is used as well?
    https://community.chocolatey.org/packages/mpv#versionhistory
    Code:
    choco install mpv
    choco upgrade mpv
    choco uninstall mpv

    Windows builds by shinchiro (releases and git)
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/mpv-player-windows/files/64bit/mpv-x86_64-20240512-gi...45.7z/download
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/mpv-player-windows/files/64bit/mpv-x86_64-20240505-gi...0d.7z/download
    also contain "bootstrapper.zip" that has two scripts (for CMD and PS)
    "updater.bat"
    "updater.ps1"

    But I am not sure how practical it is to use those scripts ....
    (anyone here uses them to keep Up to date MPV?)

    - Just posting and "ERROR" message will not help you and it's hard for us to help you as well
    (Unless you explain in more detail what worked for you and what did not
    from the "Guide" then it looks like you expect "US" to do the work for you, is that fair do you think?)

    - Did you follow the guide from top to bottom?

    - N_m3u8DL-RE is not part of Windows and you need to download it and place it to a DIR so Win can execute it...

  12. I have missed that post from StabbedByBrick
    But unfortunately agree with that statement and you as well ...

    But, COVID showed that people can and do change "en mass" ....

    Asking "unconformable" questions "may" lead to change in some ....

    Yes, you can't tell from the post of what social class/education one is from,
    but I understand that there are people who just need more help.

    Some people will realize what heap of s**t the Window$ is and
    try decent OS. And when they do, you know that it's the group
    that can and will want to learn more and not a finished article
    that they will ask questions instead of accept/consume what is on the front of them ..

    I could of course be wrong on all of the above .... but I tried

    You did not answer my questions
    Remember the "Paxman-Michael Howard interview"?
    Will I have to ask more then 12x?

    Please take a time and re-read the guide, it has all the answers
    to get you going .......if that is not your style, check out the Video,
    pause, rewind and perhaps make a note of the time where
    something did not make a sense and post back here
