歐盟對於盜版是否帶來傷害的研究

歐盟在 2014 年做了關於盜版與銷量的研究,結果一直被壓到最近才發表出來 (於是就大概可以猜到結論了...):「EU Piracy Report Suppression Raises Questions Over Transparency」。 “In general, the results do not show robust statistical evidence of displacement of sales by online copyright infringements,” the study notes. 甚至: The study found that piracy had a … Continue reading

把嵌上去的字幕重新轉回文字

雖然這篇用的方法很簡單,但因為太符合本 blog 的副標,所以還是寫下來介紹:「Extracting Chinese Hard Subs from a Video, Part 1」。 作者想要把字幕拉出來,他直接把這張圖丟進 OCR,然後失敗 XDDD: 他決定拉出下半段: 再做 thresholding: 最後再 OCR 取得文字: ′…′二′′′'′ 怎么去逯么远的地方 '/′ 雖然很粗糙,但已經可以感覺到「幹壞事是進步最大的原動力」的感覺了 XDDD 而且看起來會有續集,會用比較精緻的技巧來處理?

直接從 IMDb 編號看影片

看到「Now Anyone Can Embed a Pirate Movie in a Website」這邊介紹的東西,直接輸入 IMDb 的編號 (包括 tt 開頭的那串編號),他就自動拉出 embed code: 然後可以直接線上觀看: 然後還支援字幕 (唔): Interestingly, should one of those sources be Google Video, Vodlocker says its player offers Chromecast and subtitle support. 官網有寫來源是到處找: VoDLocker … Continue reading

利用 Side-channel 資訊判斷被 HTTPS 保護的 Netflix 影片資訊

在「Netflix found to leak information on HTTPS-protected videos」這篇看到了研究員透過 VBR 所透露出的 side channel 資訊,成功的取得了被 HTTPS 保護的 Netflix 影片資訊。這對於美國的 ISP 是個大利多 (加上之前通過的法案),但對於個人隱私則是嚴重的打擊。 這項研究的準確率非常高: To support our analysis, we created a fingerprint database comprised of 42,027 Netflix videos. Given this collection of fingerprints, … Continue reading

用程式自動同步字幕與聲音

在 Hacker News 上看到的專案,readbeyond/aeneas: aeneas is a Python/C library and a set of tools to automagically synchronize audio and text (aka forced alignment). 馬上想到的是... 這根本就是字幕組的福音 XDDD 支援的語言: Confirmed working on 38 languages: AFR, ARA, BUL, CAT, CYM, CES, DAN, DEU, … Continue reading

電信商對 Zero Rating 與網路中立性的問題

在「AT&T users will be able to stream DirecTV Now without using their data」這邊才看到 FCC 在這個月月初針對電信商對特定服務的 zero rating 發出警告:「The FCC tells AT&T it may be violating net neutrality with its DirecTV plans」: AT&T is far from the only US carrier to … Continue reading
