Inception with Firefox Browser



I am sure you must have seen the movie Inception by Christopher Nolan. The movie is based on a wild theory of dreaming inside a dream. Though we cannot dream with Firefox but the trick is opening a browser inside Firefox. Yes, you can open a new browser tab in the browser tab. That sounds confusing as the movie was.
Here is a screenshot to simplify your thought.

Firefox Inception


This is what you need to do

Open Firefox
Type chrome://browser/content/browser.xul  in the address bar and press Enter
Baam! Inception

P.S.: Think, how did I get the screenshot of the webpage in this webpage while creating this webpage.

How to make mobile a webcamera



How to make your mobile a webcameraNot everyone has a laptop and not everyone has a Desktop PC with a Webcam. Now a days, not having a camera/webcamera is a big deal. Attending Skype Calls, Facebook Live streams and many other applications and website demands you to have a webcam.
When I say a webcam , its just a camera which can stream you over internet, hence the name 'web camera' aka webcam.

So, here I am going to tell you about a simple application that I have tried and tested to make your mobile phone as webcam and save money.
As I am talking about Skype video call, I think I should call this post of mine as "How to use Mobile phone as a webcam for Skype "


 IP WEBCAM
This one is simple and elegant application which you can install on your android phone from the Play Store.
IP Webcam turns your phone into a network camera with multiple viewing options. View your camera on any platform with VLC player or web browser. Stream video inside WiFi network without internet access.

Features include:
• Video upload to Dropbox, SFTP, FTP and Email using Filoader plugin
• Several web renderers to choose from: Flash, Javascript or built-in
• Video recording in WebM, MOV, MKV or MPEG4 (on Android 4.1+)
• Audio streaming in wav, opus and AAC (AAC requires Android 4.1+)
• Motion detection with sound trigger, Tasker integration.
• Date, time and battery level video overlay.
• Sensor data acquisition with online web graphing.
• Videochat support (video stream only for Windows and Linux via an universal MJPEG video streaming driver)
• Cloud push notifications on motion and sound, cloud recording for motion-triggered records, online video broadcasting powered by Ivideon.
• Extensive baby and pet monitor features: night vision, motion detection, sound detection.

Here is the link for IP WEBCAM. Install the app on your smartphone and Launch it.
There are plenty of things which are there in the mobile app, which you dont need to worry about.

Next Step is to Download the configuration software.Download from https://ip-webcam.appspot.com/
After installing the PC app and launching it, below screen will be shown
Click on Auto Detect.
Settings window

If everything works fine, the camera will be available in Windows software. If something is wrong, please check your firewall rules and your network by visiting your network camera in a web browser.

For example, in skypeTry restarting your PC if it does not work.
After restart, launch any application
say Skype and you can then configure your skype with the IP Cam.
In Skype, Go to Tools - Options - Video Settings .
Here You need to choose, MJPEG Camera
And Baam!!! all done.

You can see your pretty cat over your PC by using your phone.

In the similar way, you can config any Streaming application . You just need to use MJPEG camera as a webcam source.

Charge mobile faster with short USB cables



Recently I came across with an nice android app called "Ampere".
Yes, it provides the current flowing into your mobile i.e while charging and also the amount of current being consumed by your smartphone while discharging.
With this app running on my mobile, I ran an small experiment.


Here are my observations,



Scenario Charging or Not Min
Current
Max
Current
Laptop - USB long cable Laptop charging 770mA 840mA
Laptop - USB long cable On battery 750mA 780mA
Laptop - USB Short Cable On battery 1150mA 1180mA
Laptop - USB Short Cable Laptop charging 1150mA 1180mA

The same goes when charging using the chargers.
With long USB cable the charging current was 890mA and with short USB cable it was 1460mA.
Charger rating was Input--0.6A, Output -- 6V- 2000mA
Its clearly seen,there is difference of 400mA  and that's a bummer if you use long USB cable.
It can be easily concluded from above table as well that using Short USB cable to charge will definitely decrease the  charging time i.e will charge your mobile or another device quicker.
And also, it does not  matter whether your laptop is charging or not the power being drawn from the USB port of laptop remains almost same.

You can also download the app from here Ampere Android app
and can understand how fast your mobile is charging with the cable you have or do you need to replace your usb charging cable.
