The fIle transfer feature seems to work flawlessly when testing off-air from PC-to-PC under Windows 10/64. Image files appear within the app window which is very cool.
I recorded a short demo video:
Great job Irad!
Hi guys. As VarAC is configured to send out ASCII data. therefor the binary format is converted to BASE64 which makes the file a larger by ~20-25%.
I will try to see how I can minimize this and report back.
Hi Ed, thanks for the confirmation. Irad is working on it so we will see what happens.
I have noticed today that my .jpg files are larger while sent via VarAC.
I have an observation regarding file size.
When I send an 18kB jpg file via Winlink it is being sent as 13648 bytes.
Without any extra size reduction from my side.
But when I send it via VarAC it is sent as 23217 bytes.
That seem like unnecessary overhead to me, but I am not an expert in
compression techniques. What do you think?
Looks great :) both the video and the image you sent HIHI
