Windows Media Player



  • I don't get it, why can't Windows Media Player handle all resolutions (1152x864 atm), VLC media player is fine. Oh well, silly Microsoft. 

    Windows Media Player



  • I wouldn't expect anything to run at 995,328 atmospheres (1,008,516.1 bars).   Concrete cracks at 500 bars of pressure.  If concrete can't take over 500 bars, I don't see why you'd expect Media Player to handle over 2,000 times as much.  Also, making me do the multiplication myself wasn't very polite.

    Windows Media Player

    Try setting it to "-1 by -1"....,

    Yeah - but he says VLC can handle it.  Maybe it's just a bug.

    A little misleading. Concrete may well crack at 500 bars of stress. But 'pressure' is often taken to mean hydrostatic stress, ie the same in all directions. 500 bars hydrostatic stress will likely do very little to concrete. 1 million bars may well do though, that's equivalent to ~3000km depth in the Earth. (I think)

    But if you encoded Media Player in a suitably robust manner, it might survive, in the mantle at least. I'd suggest using compositional or isotopic variations in the rock. As long as it stays together the data should be preserved if widely spaced enough for diffusion to not be a problem.

    I find your desire to preserve Media Player disturbing. Surely any sane person would wish to crush it into oblivion



  • Aye.

    Cast it into the depths!
