去電視廣告的服務又來了...

看到「Plex’s DVR now lets you skip the commercials… by removing them for you」這篇文章,介紹 Plex 要推出去電視廣告的服務...

維基百科上的介紹比較清楚:「Plex (software)」,主要有兩個元件組成,media server 與 player:

  • The Plex Media Server desktop application runs on Windows, macOS and Linux-compatibles including some types of NAS devices. The 'server' desktop application organizes video, audio and photos from your collections and from online services, enabling the players to access and stream the contents.
  • The media players. There are official clients available for mobile devices, smart TVs, and streaming boxes, a web app and Plex Home Theater (no longer maintained), as well as many third-party alternatives.

然後這次要推出的功能是直接在錄影的時候把廣告拿掉:

Plex confirmed it’s rolling out a new feature that will allow cord cutters to skip the commercials in the TV programs recorded using its software, making the company’s lower-cost solution to streaming live TV more compelling. Unlike other commercial-skip options, Plex’s option will remove commercials from recordings automatically.

這讓我有些印像... 當年 TiVo 也有類似的功能,不過文章裡有提到 TiVo 是提供 skip 而非直接拿掉:

The new feature works by locating the commercials in your recorded media. It then actually removes them before the media is stored in your library. That sounds like it could be even better than TiVo’s commercial skipping option, for example, because you don’t have to press a button to skip the ads — they’re being pulled out for you, proactively.

不過主要是認識了 Plex 這個軟體... 如果是電視兒童的話應該用的到 XD 台灣目前的電視節目好像看的比較少...

移除 Remove Facebook Redirections...

Google Chrome 裝上 Remove Facebook Redirections 可以避免 Facebook 重導,加減提高些隱私性...

不過最近發現當 Facebook 捲頁捲很長時會變得爆慢,但網路上好像沒有人提到這個問題?看起來應該是我的某個 extension 造成的,測了老半天發現是這個 extension 的問題 :o 然後身為工程師的直覺,這八成是每次增加元素後直接對整個 document 全掃一次造成的...

翻 source code 後 (直接到 Default/Extensions/onhdomkbnapoacbialllfpbcckckidck/1.2_0/ 裡的 RemoveFacebookRedirections.js 翻) 可以發現 huntForLinks() 果然就是這樣做...

先移除掉再說 @_@
