I have just started to use these. I had downloaded 3 films and none would play, but i downloaded the Prison series OZ and they played no bother.

 

Any ideas?

Thanks Mike.

 

I am not too clever about all this. but in a nut shell will i drag and drop the film into this programe and it'll convert it for me?

 

No, just install this program and play the files as normal in your usual media player

I love the torrent thing ... but it DID take some time to get all of the file types to play. Most are .avi files, so they'll play on Windows Media Viewer -- at least on a PC. If you're on a mac and they won't play with sound on QUicktime, download the free VLC video player -- it can play pretty much anything on a map. EIther that, or the XVid player. I wish they would just make a standard format for all this shit. On the other hand, it's all free, so I guess I shouldn't complain!

Just to make sure the listening port is open (i know that will make no sense to you Q)

 

You get best download speeds between 11pm and 6am anyway, just leave downloads overnight like I do and most of the time they are complete when I wake up.

Actually I've just noticed the latest DivX codec now plays Xvid, though I've not tried it for encoding yet.

Or you can try and join

 

www.supertorrents.org

 

or www.torrentbytes.org

 

 

if you can download at 200kb a second you will get these speeds on these sites

 

if you can download at 1meg a second you will also get these speeds on these sites

I have moved house and I cant get ADSL2 out in the suburbs , however when i had ADSL 2 i was downloading a movie in 25 minutes.

 

 

Torrentspy and Piratebay are full of leeches so you struggle to get any better than 20kbs a second

 

www.demonoid.com isn't much better

 

Another tip is buy an Divx player or at least a DVD/DIVX, that way you can download xvid (700-800megs) as opposed to DVDS (3-4 gig) and still watch it on a dvd player without having to convert the file using DVD santa etc.

Or try this as stated in my previous post

 

I've just started a thread on how to make the most out of downloading movies with torrents.

 

They easy way to watch them on you DVD player and your 50 inch wide screen!

Can anyone help me on PS2 Games.

 

I know how to burn movies , is burning a PS2 game to disc any different?

PS2 games normally come as .ISO if I am not mistaken.

 

I think the same rules apply, I have burnt movies that are .iso before and I think I used either alcohol or Nero or Power2go.

 

Google "how to burn .iso"

Thanks Pandute.

 

I will also add

 

You can check the quality of the movie you are downloading here

 

 

www.vcdquality.com

 

Say you want to download "Superbad"

 

example below (whenver you go to download a file it will have the following)

 

1)type of file eg (Cam,telesync,dvdrip etc)

2)the group who did the recording or supplied or stole the video in this instance it is Mvs

 

so you can go to www.vcdquality.com check the standard of the movie you are about to download/buy

 

08/25/2007 TELESYNC Superbad *XviD* *INTERNAL* mVs 5.5/7.5/9.3

 

the 5.5 is picture quality 5.5/10

the7.5 is sound

the 9.3 is the viewerrs rating of the movie

 

so this particular copy is not very good as the picture quality is only 5.5/10

 

 

Even if you live in Thailand and you occasionaly buy movies off the street , you can go to vcdquality and if there isnt a good copy of the movie you want to watch then the stuff they are selling on the street is the same, becuase it all comes from the same sources.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
