What happened to the creator of mpv exactly? Why did he get kicked out from his own project? What lead up to the mpv creator getting kicked out?

I posted this thread on Lainchan earlier, but I didn't get to see any replies and then when I went to check back on it, it got deleted most likely because it was offtopic despite it relating to FOSS. There is no ban message.
Please do not del this thread, janny.

That account isn't him,github is just being nigger-tier technology and letting someone else grab the name because the actual person left.
Though,the dude might have actually gotten kicked off since his disappearance was not well explained and there are some posts of plebbitors complaining about how his linus tier dev rants are 'toxic' around the time he went awol.His big rant against GNOME's retardation in regards to protcol conformance got a bunch of cucks all fired up.
At the same time the now maintainer(who I remember being a contributor for a long time) seems to be acting respectful towards him and I can't help but feel that they wouldn't be able to keep themselves from gloating about the 'victory' if they actually drove the dude off.

Incredibly gay. I guess if I ever come up with an idea for something useful I'll release it as closed source shareware so I can't be bullied out of my own project.

He seduced a guy in his project group while he was going out with another guy in the group. So it made a problem in their project.
Maybe that's the best way to avoid it. How does a (((board of directors))) even begin to form around an open source project? I can't find any of their names. Maybe it doesn't exist in an official capacity, but they obviously consider themselves to be a (((board of directors))) based on their statement to "have a full board room meeting" to discuss the "issue" of bad manners online. You think they'd do everything to placate the creator and major contributor of the project. No, the opinion of some fag on twitter, who wasn't even involved, is more important.

Why would you expect them to allow you to have good things Anon? Learn to code, and at least you might have something to say in the matter. Otherwise just be a good goy and go back to sleep. Trannies have projects to corrupt...

What the fuck.
I'm gettin real tired of this "preferred pronouns" bullshit. For some reason, everyone (women especially) now feel the need to put shit like "she/her/hers" in their email signatures and twitter profiles. Fuck that noise. A mere 7 years ago you'd be laughed out of the building for that shit. I can think of 1 guy off the top of my head in #lainchan who uses nixOS and is very active in there, but I can't see him using twatter.

This mentality is retarded. Even if you were dumb enough to set up a bureaucracy for your project that kicked you out, it's a fucking freetard project. You can fork the project and continue pulling their improvements for your own version, and there's nothing the salty faggots can do about it.
Proprietary software, copyright, and (((intellectual property))) in general are anti-traditional garbage and you are a wimpy, limp-wristed faggot.

Even for an open source software, the first developer has a right about its brand name and logo.

The name Linux is owned by Linus.

The name of Red Had Enterprise Linux and its logo are owned by Red Hat company.

Firefox's brand name and logo are owned by its foundation.

They open only their source codes.

What's the problem with releasing the source while keeping the project a one man job? Anyone trying to join is told to fuck off, and anyone asking for a CoC is promptly told to dilate and blocked. If on some rare occasion a fag comes along and positively contributes to your project you can add him at your own discretion, but keep the keys to the kingdom in your hands. And don't let "women" in...
Worst case is some troon makes a "welcoming" fork of your project only for it to get instantly filled with STD code before it crashes and burns. Just make sure to stay away from GitHub and use any of the FOSS alternatives.

Yeah and now the name seems to be in the hands of this alleged board that will most certainly drive the project to the ground. Nothing's stopping anyone from making an mpv2 though.

That's the problem. A (big) part of open source software are done for resume padding, thus real names are used. Kicking fags and SJW away immediately activate their trap card: social pressure and job prospect threats.
Anonymous git repo or single use pseudonyms (or even better a public key as username) prevent this from happening at all.

That's what I had in mind all along. I didn't even know people use FOSS projects to fill resumés, but I guess it makes sense when you can't fill it with corporate references. If you are forced to use your real name when creating your own project you can just make your repo private and only give access to select people, or alternatively disable pull requests and other areas of outside feedback.

Did the thought ever appear in your tiny nigger brain that a smart-aleck /g/oon might use sarcasm on the Internet? For all we know at this point the original dev may have just grown sick of it all. It's a reminder to git clone software you care about but if you percieve comments like that one as an attack you should probably stick to using TempleOS.

I prefer 9front's approach: they replace all the proper nouns in /doc/ files with "Code of Conduct" and show a random one every time you load the page.

https://github.com/wm4/mpv2 just has the AGPLv3 in LICENSE, no actual code. Either way the project has sucked CoC since last August so you have neither you nor he have any right to start complaining about this shit now.
This is perfect! But nothing will top blacklist's CoC, which is basically a reverse "I'd like to interject for a moment".


Ah, good to know. Thankfully I have a "clean" official account on github for such personal matters, and a different anonymous one for real shit that can be deleted at a moment's notice.
Replies: >>3892
Doesn't 9front actually have a real CoCk, too? One of the developers got kicked out because he said something wrong in the IRC/Mailing-list 2-3 years ago.
>anti-traditional garbage
Being traditional would mean everything is proprietary but everything is cracked as well and the cracking itself is proprietary as well because the release groups don't want other groups to steal their shit. Damn I miss those times, a whole lot more fun than frettard bullshit. The whole GPL thing just turn people into faggots who think things like licenses and legality are actually relevant. Almost as gay as the RPG Maker community that at some point realized they can monetize their games and in turn stopped ripping SNES assets.

being traditional would mean everything is exchanged freely as was the case during the early days of computing
Replies: >>1633
Bring traditional means the source is distributed with the software, which is distributed with the hardware with a manual detailed enough to modify all aspect of it. And modifications were normal instead of illegal. This was the case before proprietary software became the norm.

Somebody with a twitter account tell the fag that he's projecting. Please and thank you.

This is so retarded. Mpv is supposed to be a minimalistic video player targeted at advanced users, and if some tweetard doesn't like the fact that it lacks more GUI features, then he should fucking use a frontend for it, or write his own plugins that add the functionality he wants it to have. Meanwhile the tranny that is now in charge of mpv's Twitter account is possibly even more retarded, because he's calling an ironic weeb a pedo (despite the fact that both of them hate lolicons for the same reason) for not attempting to even understand what the mpv project is about, instead of just simply ignoring him, and now thanks to the likes of them mpv is dying, because wm4 was pretty much the only faggot in this project that was frequently contributing to it.

>randomly bursts into a conversation to yell at someone reporting a bug for not using C
Not going to say that was banworthy, but it's complete fucking sped behavior. If he did this repeatedly it's no wonder they'd try to get rid of him.
Software development attracts such fucking faggots. What an aids-infested field. I would never do a project that involves other people, fuck that. How do you even get kicked out of your own project? It's his project and if they don't like it, they should fuck off. Anyway, I hope this doesn't kill mpv, even if he has to fork it, because it's the best media player. There is always MPlayer, though, I guess. It's dead, so it can't be ruined.

Fuck mvp, mpc-hc is better. It had a more maintained fork, forgot the name.

Media Player Classic - Home Cinema. Fuck linux.
>How do you even get kicked out of your own project?
By being a spineless faggot that has put themselves in a position that makes them easy to blackmail (Using Discord/Twitter/Github is a big no no) and letting your project get infested with idiots in the first place. 
If you're adamant about using Twitter make a fucking project page that posts every few days/weeks on updates and features instead of using it for personal reasons. Communicate using a method that doesn't store posts indefinitely along with a built in search engine (Discord). Do a short background check on people contributing. If they end up being mentally ill kick them out of the project for "cultural incompatibility". Don't listen to their whining.
at this point it's probably more feasible to just make a new one using ffplay, or even fucking chromium.
this issue https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/issues/9285 is still on mpv and other foss shit so I assume opening a glow h26x video can just pwn your system.
I assume the problem has something to do with yuv4xx conversion on h.264/h.265 video which is wrongly implemented causing some kind of overflow and greens on grey scale colorbar/gradient test,

chromium doesn't have this problem https://github.com/adobe/chromium/blob/master/media/base/yuv_convert_unittest.cc
fuck mpv fuck vlc fuck everything.

I started using ffplay. It comes bundled with ffmpeg.
No screenshot feature or time indicator, but I like using less bloated things. And you can always write a wrapper around ffplay.
CoCs could be used against them, just create a bunch of fake tranny accounts and keep flooding their 'commitees' with reports.
According to that thread the problem is with Chromium though, not mpv.
good thing i use old school VLC

what the what? 9front supports lefty propaganda?
Replies: >>3896 >>3897
9front's CoC is randomly selected, refresh the page a few times.
Check their home page to see what they support. That should answer your question.
>>1115 (OP) 
A good question is also "how"?
Search for "Code of Merit". It was created to counteract the current (in 2016) trend of barnacling on FLOSS, which already was a big trouble back then. So you will see the relevant incidents mentioned in those discussions.
Why would people in their right mind use Haskell?
Replies: >>6066
The problem isn't exactly the free and open source license. You can write for a traditional all rights reserved program and still lose your rights to it when you leave or are fired from the company. This happens plenty of times in video games. Hideo Kojima doesn't own Metal Gear; Hideki Kamiya own Devil May Cry. The difference is that employees leave companies having been paid, but for most open source projects, the developers are left with nothing.

Don't assign the rights to your project to a "collective" or "community" if you don't want this to happen to you.
That's not wm4, the real wm4 deleted his github account because he was fed up with dealing with javashitters from cuck/g/ and people from cancerous projects like GNOME who constantly harassed the project opening issues to create long threads arguing about stupid shit from XDG directories to requiring GNOME-only libraries. The one in the OP is an impersonator.

>I'll release it as closed source shareware
I'll top this, release the source code inside PNG's and make the cucks decrypt it to get the source code.

I'll bite. Your pronouns should form a complete word, since they only use one at a time. For example, with he/il/hit/ler,

It is better to use complete words or sentences. I-hate-niggers/Faggot-killer's
>I-hate-niggers hates niggers
