Jaksta Media Recorder for Windows Technical Support Forum

Location of monitors configuration, and Crypto folder embedded into engine updates?

Hi!

  • Where does Jaksta store its monitors configuration?  I can manually save to a specific file, but Jaksta remembers its monitors across restarts.  Where does it store this information?
  • Starting with the 9/25/2021 engine updates, the C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Jaksta Media Recorder 7\dl folder contains Crypto and websockets folders and a bunch of others files not previously distributed (prior distributions have only dl.dat, dl.exe, and release_notes.txt in this folder).  Why?  Why / how is a Crypto folder related to Jaksta?

Thanks!

JMR7: C:\Users\<your profile>\AppData\Roaming\Jaksta Media Recorder 7

The extraction engine is now unpacked when it is installed.  This is for performance reasons, saves it having to be unpacked from the dat file on each run.

Thanks.  I understand the performance advantage in unpacking the extraction engine.  What I don't understand is why there are Crypto hashing engine files included in these folders:

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Jaksta Media Recorder 7\dl\RELEASE\Crypto

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Jaksta Media Recorder 7\dl\RELEASE\Crypto\Cipher

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Jaksta Media Recorder 7\dl\RELEASE\Crypto\Hash

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Jaksta Media Recorder 7\dl\RELEASE\Crypto\Math

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Jaksta Media Recorder 7\dl\RELEASE\Crypto\Protocol

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Jaksta Media Recorder 7\dl\RELEASE\Crypto\PublicKey

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Jaksta Media Recorder 7\dl\RELEASE\Crypto\Util

It's part of the engine.  Why?

So, are you saying that you are using all of your customers' systems to mine cryptocurrencies?

:) That package has nothing to do with cryptocurrencies.  

It contains low-level cryptographic primitives.

You include hashlib in your distribution.  I get it now.  Thanks!
