  5. LS018 Audioformate für Podcasts | Der Lautsprecher

    Noch ein paar Ergänzungen mit meinen Erfahrungen. Seit Android 5 gibt es Unterstützung für Opus (siehe Dort steht zwar, dass es nur im MKV-Container unterstützt wird, aber auf meinen Gertäten (Nexus5 und Nexus 5X) funktioniert es auch im OGG-Container. Es gibt dabei nur einen kleinen Haken, damit der Sytstem-Medienabspieler die Datei findet und abspielt muss die Endung .ogg sein wie bei Vorbis und nicht .opus. Seit Android 5 habe ich alle Podcast die ich höre auf Opus umgestellt und AntennaPod spielt die ohne Probleme ab.

    WEBM ist eine Teilmenge von MKV.

  8. Lost in the Taiga - Futility Closet

    In 1978 a team of geologists discovered a family of five living deep in the Siberian forest, 150 miles from the nearest village. Fearing persecution, they had lived entirely on their own since 1936, praying, tending a meager garden, and suffering through winter temperatures of 40 below zero. In this week’s episode of the Futility Closet podcast we’ll meet the Lykov family, whose religious beliefs committed them to “the greatest solitude on the earth.”

    We’ll also learn about Esperanto’s role in a Spanish prison break and puzzle over a self-incriminating murderer.


    The London Review and Literary Journal of August 1796 records a cricket match “by eleven Greenwich Pensioners with one leg against eleven with one arm, for one thousand guineas, at the new Cricket ground, Montpelier Gardens, Walworth.”

    The British Veterinary Journal of March 1888 reports that a Manchester horse fitted with eyeglasses “now stands all the morning looking over the half-door of his stable with his spectacles on, gazing around him with an air of sedate enjoyment.”
