  1. It is VP9. What is quite interesting is VP9 appears as an experimental feature if you enable developer menu, which I assume means that it is still a working progress.
  2. I didn't install Catalina so I can't comment on it. But I believe it was the same Safari on Mojave albeit without this problem. On Big Sur, at least on my machine (iMac 2017 - 27"), the scrolling is smoother, 4K is finally available on YouTube but skipping is not really smooth, which I've tried with 1080p videos, too. Safari is now using VP9 codec so it might be something to do with this change as it used to be H.264 only on Mojave hence the lack of 4K. Other than that, playback is smooth, which I also tried with 4K 60p, and there is no change in fan noise.
  3. I can report one bug that I've just come across. While playing YouTube videos, if I can use L to skip the video consecutively, the tab freezes and comes back to life after a while, which wasn't the case on Mojave.
  4. The new icons indeed look horrible, which reminds me of icons pack that I'd installed on my windows mobile phone 15 years ago 🙂 In terms of performance and reliability, I have yet to use it extensively but it seems ok so far. One thing I've noticed right away is scrolling. It is way smoother on Chrome and Safari. What I really wonder is how some of these design changes have passed from accessibility point of view.
  5. Just an update to my own question, apparently Panasonic is going to release a “Lumix Webcam Software” in September/October to enable webcam mode for some of its cameras, including DC-S1H, DC-S1R, DC-S1, DC-GH5S, DC-GH5, and DC-G9 models.
  6. They do not, unfortunately. What they have, as I described above, is a new view mode in the tether application that removes all display information and creates a clean window so that you can capture that window with a streaming software, which means that you can’t use it directly in your conferencing application unless you go through a few extra steps to create a virtual webcam.
  7. Rather than providing a clean feed window for live streaming in their tether application , which is then to be captured by a streaming software, do they have any plan to enable a webcam mode in their cameras, similar to what Canon, Fujifilm and more recently Olympus have done?
  8. I am not impressed, Andrew. I was unable to see all the blemishes on people's faces. It is not sharp enough. ?
  9. Andrew, this is what I really like about you and EOSHD, which is the only forum on filmmaking that I regularly follow and care to participate in. I just check other websites to learn about new gadgets and toys
  10. Do you guys have any experience with third-party batteries and any brand you'd recommend? I need two batteries for the weekend until the Power Junkie that I'd backed on Kickstarter ships next month.
  11. I was quite interested in Mix Pre 3 until F8n came out. Honestly, I don't need F8n as it is, in my ways, an overkill for me but the fact that it has the auto mixer built-in makes me excited about it. I imagine that it would be quite useful for live streaming and quick post-production. I hope to see reviews for it. For example, I wonder if the F8n does mix-minus automatically and more importantly when you bring in the audio from a computer, does it also apply audio mixing to that channel? In practice, what it means is that when a remote guest is not speaking, say for example via Skype, you don't send unnecessary hiss and noise to the final mix.
  12. True but for some reason the firmware is not available and according to a customer service reply, as reported in the video's comment section, it will be available in newly manufactured ones. Not sure what it means but it doesn't look promising. I am also looking for information on whether these cheap monitors with false color have the option to set different thresholds/levels in false color?
  13. I am also interested in this monitor; however, there appear to be some problems in 4K where some of the functions do not work correctly. A new firmware has reportedly fixed the issues but it is not available online as far as I can see. Some say it will only come with new devices.
  14. As far as I know, Rode VideoMicro comes only with a TRS cable out of the box so you have to purchase a TRRS cable to use it on your phone. On my Tascam DR100 Mark II, I can't use lavalier mics that require plug-in power. Just make sure the audio recorder you are planning to use supply plugin power. On a side note, I suggest you take a look at Movo VXR10 or Boya BY-MM1 (Same mics) Cable reviewed this mic on his channel. I bought mine for £20. It is similar to Rode VideoMicro but louder and comes with TRS and TRRS cables, shock mount, a dead cat and carrying pouch. Since you already have a Rode VideoMicro and are on tight budget, perhaps you could purchase this mic alongside with a stereo breakout cable and use them on your Zoom H1.
  15. Apparently, square videos generate more engagements according to this experiment.
