Debbie Does Dallas (NSFW), remove repeating 4-second clip[edit]

File:Debbie Does Dallas.ogv

The clip from around 59:49 to 59:54 repeats from around 59:54 to 59:59. I attempted to cut the repeating segment out of the video, but somehow ended up with a file that's read by players as being 28 hours long(!!!), and while the clip's audio synced, the beginning of the spliced clip was just a still frame. I think this may be related to some weird errors I've been getting from FFMPEG about the impurity of this OGV file (which I'm not wizardly enough with the specifics of how video files work to know why it's impure). @Racconish: Or anyone else: Is it possible to fix this?

GIF creation request[edit]

Article(s): Venezia on italian Wikivoyage

I wish that the left circles column go from up to down and right circles column go from down to up, perhaps starting out of image and going out of image and in loop. Many thanks in advance!!! --Gatto bianco (talk) 15:48, 26 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Will the gif file I posted next to your image work? --Tfbybyhf (talk) 04:22, 3 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Graphist annoyance
Hi @Gatto bianco: you made the same request, here and in c:GL/I GIF creation request, on the same date.
Moreover, no indication, no links between the requests.
Please avoid this!
Luckily, the two graphists : @Tfbybyhf and : have different solutions to your need. This improves the amount of animated GIFs available.
I duplicate – me too – this comment for the given annoyance, in the other page. Yours, En rouge (talk) 14:10, 9 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Converting video files into sound files[edit]

Hey dear community,
could someone please extract the audio from the following video files and upload them as a new file version and delete the old file version? It could be that these images are unfree in the respective video file. :) (Category where the files are categorized: Category:1_Thema,_2_Farben)

I hope I have not forgotten any file.

Thank you very much and best greetings, --PantheraLeo1359531 😺 (talk) 15:04, 31 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

A slightly more complete version of this video, which doesn't cut off the merger event at the last second, is available at [1]. --–LaundryPizza03 (d) 01:18, 12 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
