I was trying to search & download these for audacity @ Windows.
I'm not sure if I'm the only one lost in the maze. I couldn't find one reliable site that provides these. The re-direction game keeps happening on multiple levels.
And the site that says I can download, looks very much like those evil-warezz site.
Hope these are free libraries.
Even 1 or 2 years ago I was trying to get the audacity extension or whatever you need and I remember landing on the sourceforge site and thinking, "Seriously!?! sourceforge is dead and taken over! Why on sourceforge?"
Unsure why they haven't moved it somewhere a bit more modern.
no idea, I know there was noise about licenses etc which stopped some moving to github (and that was way before ms came into the picture)
and it's still the official site, always rather that then some scammy free downloads site?
(Would you prefer cnet?)
At least you can be sure sourceforge downloads still are truly clean - as compared most other 'free & safe' download sites there's not going to be injected ads/loggers/trojans etc or need to sign up to a junk mailing list.
I'm old fashioned in many respects, and I like my old Minolta Dimage A200 camera.
OK, it doesn't have WiFi, it never heard of Farcebok, and it's only 8MP - but it's got a good lens, and it's a Minolta and I understand them (Used them in the very old "Film" days before I bought a pocket-sized Fuji digital).
But ... it's Compact Flash, and my card reader failed, so I can't access the pictures.
So I bought a cable for £2 from FleaBay. And added an XP VM To Virtualbox. Plug the cable in, turn on the camera and ... it recognised it, installed it as an HDD and gives me the pictures. Win 10? Nah ... don't be silly ...
Quick - Snapshot that bugger, Griff!
Yay! I can flog that cheap vacuum sealer I bought to tide me over on FleaBay!
