Community Rules

This comm is open to anyone to post codes, layouts, resources, tutorials, and requests for help and content. Of course, we do have some rules, so please read through them before jumping in; thank you!

Treat others the way you'd like to be treated. This is not a drama comm, and we expect you guys to be awesome and stay civil. If a situation gets out of hand, please contact a mod, and leave comments intact so we can accurately handle the situation.

Please tag your posts and check out the tagging guide if you have any questions!

■ Very long posts or posts formatted with your own div styling for organization should be behind a cut to save people's f-lists.

Work safe above the cut, please!

■ If posting codes, guides, etc. absolutely do not post content that you did not make. That's stealing, and it's super uncool, bro! If you are posting expanded/edited codes made by yourself using another user's coding as well, please be sure you have their permission (You do not need direct permission if they allow edits to be re-posted in their blanket rules.)
■ Do not post tutorials/links to tutorials that show people how to steal codes from other users. Again: Stealing. Not cool.
When asking for help with something, please check the help tags (help: coding, help: graphics, help: icons, help: layouts, help: other) first to see if your question has already been posted and answered to avoid duplicates.

We do not allow game ads to be posted on this comm since there are so many communities specifically for that already; if you're pimping a game as an addition to a regular post, that's fine. (OK: You post an RP code and mention in the post, oh hey, also I'm running this game! NOT OK: Posts dedicated to game promo.)

We do allow other types of community promos if they are related to RP (icon comms, other types of resource comms, etc.) Just shoot us a comment in our dropbox beforehand and we'll let you know if it's cool to post!

After reading through a tutorial by [info]tessisamess I attempted to grab some screencaps from a movie trailer, but because I think I was streaming it through VLC most of the grabs came out heavily pixelated. I was wondering if anyone had any success doing a YouTube to MP4 conversion and, if so, what tool would be the best to do this?

I actually have a much simpler way of doing it these days that I've been meaning to post about! I no longer use VLC since there are so many steps to auto-cap, and this program (Free Video to JPG Converter) does it better with no hassle or needing to run the video at the same time.

You can choose to have it pull every single frame, every nth frame, a frame every nth second, or a total number of evenly dispersed frames from the video! 💖

Thanks, Tess! Attempted to download it, though, and my anti-virus freaked out. 😂

Freaked out as in wouldn't let you download or freaked out as in saying "are you sure"? My Windows 11 yelled about it but I installed it anyway and don't see any unwanted executables listed in my programs and features list nor any questionable services or processes running in my task manager, so...

It wouldn't let me download it until I told it to allow/monitor it. Honestly, nothing hinky really happened after downloading it and, like you said, I don't see anything out of the ordinary anywhere.

My bigger question was how to convert or grab YouTube videos in order to screencap them. But, that might be one of those things that are of questionable nature (IDRK, I've never done screen-capping before lol).
