comment File size per video minute on iPhone 6?
Keep in mind that the answers below will vary because of file compression. Some scenes are more compressible than others. For example, a video with a constant background and small foreground subject is highly compressible because most of the picture stays constant between frames. A fast moving video shot on a roller coaster would have little similarity between frames, and would be less compressible (thus, larger).

Hmm that's a shame. Worth a try though.

comment Does online gaming use data?
Most internet connected games send the minimal possible data (for sake of minimizing their server load) over the network in the form of small commands to the app. Visual and audio assets are stored locally on the device, and the network just tells them where to be used.

comment Can I install OS X on a failing SSD?
Any sort of diagnostics I'd try running on the drive would require an installation of OS X anyway, so I would suggest you address imaging the USB drive to boot OS X as its own question to tackle first.

Yeah I have a time machine backup. I'll try deleting ServerDocs later and see what happens.

Yes, I suspect those are some kind of backups, but I don't know why server would have them.

Here's the directory listing of the ServerDocs (sorted by file size). The files have all sorts of types and obscure names.

comment VTDecoderXPCService taking CPU
Most likely this process is related video playback. Also, you won't have any performance improvement from unloading a driver of an unused piece of hardware.

That's pretty wacky. Was there a happy ending?

comment Is there a utility for mac that shows the information of an SSD like the health etc…?
Your description isn't very clear, you say it's on "verge of dying", but don't even know if it's "as critical as the message implies." I presume you got a warning from the OS, what did it say exactly?

Strange, is there any visible consequence of that? Though i don't understand the paranoia and need to constantly be worrying about your computer and micro managing it's most mundane aspects, it's unhealthy and usually futile.

The thunderbolt display adds ethernet functionality to computers over thunderbolt. It's not used as a display interface.

That implies interference on the display signal lines. Are you sure the connector is well seated?

The voodoo is quite simple actually, 2 resistors are used to make a voltage divider that puts 2V on both data lines paulorenato.com/joomla/images/stories/iphone_karaoke/…
