Is it possible to attach a virus/trojan/malware/ransomware to an .mp3 file or similar? I downloaded an album off of a filehosting site after specifically requesting it to be uploaded from a person, which makes me massively paranoid of their intentions.


I tried googling it, but got everything from "you're fine" to "UR COMP HAS AIDS LOL".

A friend once asked me to watch a video with her that she was going to display on her computer using Netflix. I declined, saying that Netflix was such an affront to freedom that I could not be party to its use under any circumstances whatsoever.

>"hahahaha fuckin NORMIES using VLC to watch NORMIE SHIT!! Download MPV TO WATCH anime fucking VLCFAG

Why should I care about what media player I use? They're all the fucking same.

I don't see a damn difference between VLC, MPV, Windows 10 Media Player, MPC, and QuickTime, all on the same file

Is this the biggest meme to happen on /g/?
Pic related, it's the face of every faggot on this damn website where media players matter.

Damn, you're actually butthurt over this.
Use what you want retard. Some people like full customization, some dont give a shit. This is a technology board, meaning people like to tinker and have full control which is why mpv is so popular here.

>>61498484
Use whatever you want then.
I don't get why you get so upset just because someone on an anonymous image board wrote a post saying "install X video player"

>>61498484
>I don't see a damn difference
I'm sorry you don't have a 20/20 vision like the rest of us here so that you can enjoy the visual improvement from using mpv. I bet you even have terrible font rendering but think it looks okay.

If you want help:
>Assemble your parts list

>List games/software you use often, as well as your monitor resolution + refresh rate
>Clarify your goal for build improvements: lower price or improved specs?
How to assemble a PC, select components & more (kind of outdated)
https://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php?title=Build_a_PC

CPUs:
No i5 unless discounted
>G4560/G4600 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R5 1400 - Cheapest quad core you can get (Ryzen 3 soon)
>R5 1500x - Good but up to 1600 if you can
>R5 1600 - Best value for higher fps gaming / mixed usage; 1600x if you want higher stock clocks
>i7 7700k - Only for 144hz
>R7/Used Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/VM/mixed use; Not for just gaming

GPUs:
Coin miners have driven price up and stock down, waiting to buy a GPU might be wiser
>Integrated CPU Graphics - Desktop stuff and very light games
>GTX 1050(Ti) - Lower end budget cards, drop settings on newer games, RX560 beaten by both
>RX570 - [email protected]~hz maxed, running most maxed older games at 100~Hz
>RX580 and GTX1060 6GB - [email protected] maxed, [email protected] at lower settings; RX580 better in newer games
>GTX 1070 - [email protected] /[email protected] at high
>GTX 1080 - [email protected] / [email protected] maxed, [email protected] in a few games; Probably the highest end card you need for 1080p/1440p
>GTX 1080Ti - [email protected] and [email protected] maxed/high in many games

RAM:
>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM
>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM

General:
ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor.
The Ryzen lineup comes with surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.

I managed to snap a pin on my USB 3.0 header on my motherboard. I've got a bit of wire used for vaping and pushed it as far into the male end and snipped it to a size that is making contact but I can still pull it out with pliers incase. good idea or not?

USB ports are working perfectly and have been for a while. Just want opinions on my bodge fix
