A better way of Importing MOV files to SuperMemo
Fastest way to import files into supermemo is by menu options:
File: Import: File & Folders
Previous trouble with MOV files was they didn’t play, because SuperMemo relies on MCI (Multimedia Control Interface).
This Media Control Interface, MCI in short, is an aging high-level API developed by Microsoft and IBM for controlling multimedia peripherals connected to a Microsoft Windows or OS/2 computer, such as CD-ROM players and audio controllers.
For a number of years, the MCI interface has been phased out in favor of the DirectX APIs. Source: Wikipedia
Fastest way to import files is still: File: Import: File & Folders
Just change the .mov extension to .mpg before, that way MCI (SuperMemo) will bypass the trouble with MCI for mov files, then choose the folder with your .mov (quicktime) mpg files and use File: Import: File & Folders
Ok, but then you have to spend hours changing you thousand mov files to mpg manually? Well you could better use AnalogX Extension Changer (download).
This freeware is the most easy to use extension changer. Drop and drag the files you need to change its extension, choose a new one (e.g. “mpg”), hit rename. (drop the complete folder, AnalogX will understand you mean the files not folders).
There you have it easier then typing a Q&A text file. Sometimes you’ll probably prefer text files, but no more trouble importing your MOV files to the sound registry
(ok, I got complex again, not my fault I’m not complicated, Its…. Supermemo fault, for been so much powerful, wright?
SuperMemo 2008 post will come out soon… we must see under the hood before you buy a car don’t we – perhaps not so much this days. I’ll do the testing (under a complete safe environment – complete geekeness I know, but if your going to play with your databank you should!)
