@deadliner, I concur with my fellow members ... The edits/restorations are only done/supported by a small group of the mainstream population really. Most don't get or understand the reason why they might be needed or wanted to be done. Risk is a big issue considering the source materials used, the private work and money that goes in to them, and they are NOT for sale by anyone associated with these projects. We are a very protective group with good reason to be so elusive.
avatar
Also, edits and restores tended to have a lot of money and time sunk into getting them done, so sometimes some people might only share it within their group for the first while I am guessing.
avatar
@deadliner. Maybe because people are taking a risk by releasing an edit/restoration, that and not all sites will allow these kinds of projects. Just the way it is i suppose.
avatar
Why are edits & restorations so difficult to get a hold of? A person can get practically any theatrical version extremely easily if they want to. But edits and restores? Nope. Near impossible to find them.

Thanks! From my very first link to them ... I FOUND A BUG! -- "Error 520 Web server is returning an unknown error" -- Am I good or what? Big Grin (Excue me while I do my titan-victory-dance . . https://media1.tenor.com/images/d89ba4e9.../tenor.gif )

New MyBB releases https://blog.mybb.com/
avatar
@ Feallan -- Are these updates local-fix or software-release updates? Is there a list of "improvements/fixes" for us to peruse and test? I like to stomp on things, like Argonauts ... but software code will do as well. Big Grin
avatar
Thanks Feallan
avatar
Updated all plugins we use (except the mobile theme), let me know if you find any problems
avatar
Updated the forum
avatar
Lossless? No unless you want the resulting file to be PCM. You can use MKV container flags to change the playback speed of the audio losslessly, but the playback speed flags are not reccomended to be used for audio.
avatar
Hey guys. Is it possible to losslessly convert a PAL/25fps AC3 audio file to NTSC/24fps speed?
avatar
@FrankT watch video instead of ask questions. It's possible to use Google unlimited space cloud storage for $50 per month and backup at least a full PB of data (they bought two extra accounts so they could transfer more bandwidth at once hence $70/m). Yes they have that much data and yes they need it backed up.
avatar
Thanks......

Bharath ... I don't know what your first language is so maybe I'm not understanding you but nobody downloads movies from this site because it is a preservation forum, not a torrent site. There are sites where the projects from here are hosted but most of them probably require membership to access the downloads. None of the projects done here are stored here for members to access with the click of a button. Any further questions you have should be directed to admin or mods. A quick read of the rules may also help answer some questions you may have. Please have a good day.
avatar
Jetrell Fo....I didnt Get you,,,,how to get movies from this site
avatar
Bharath15 ... there are no movies to download from this site ... you would need to be a member of other sites that support and allow the share these fan projects.
avatar
how to download movies on this site ??
avatar
Oh, well it should be perfect for you.
avatar
I need another 120TB actually, just to store scans that are waiting to be done.
avatar
Add another zero to that Wink
avatar
What's that, like... 100TB? Does anyone even need that much disk space?
avatar
Petabyte

PB? Is that a new thing?

Want to backup 1PB of data for $70/m? https://youtu.be/y2F0wjoKEhg?t=370

Well, I'm going back to paper-punch cards ... Shocked

I have over 30 seagates here, have had one failure. I've lost 4 WD Black drives in the past 3 months. It is totally patchy and very model dependent.
avatar
That may be true now, but in the last 5 years I've had really high failure rates with the Seagates I used to buy.
avatar
All drives have a percentage of failures. They are all pretty much the same now.
avatar
Newegg too! (Hmm ... orchestrated sales? Maybe TOO good to be true: Newegg.com - 5star 40%, 1star 27% - "Pros: Price. Cheaper than the internal desktop drive. || Cons: Failed after a few months. None of my partition software on windows or linux would even recognize it. || Other Thoughts: Can't warranty it because sensitive information is stored on it.")

8TB drives, $140 today

Not off the top of my head but it made me think of this: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114594/

@poita - mkv works fine for me without transcoding to stream to my 2011 Samsung TV using Serviio. But my TV is unable to play IDX/SUB format subtitles and they must be OCR converted to .srt if I want to play them. Another thing is that I can't stand NTSC judder so I would usually IVTC a NTSC disc to 23.976p first.
avatar
I tried plex at one point and found it's transcode quality to be suspect. Does it really require mp4? That's less versatile than google drive. I use oshare as my dlna server. It doesn't transcode anything, but as long as your device can play the file, it works extremely well.
avatar
I personally store everything in MKV but it does require a demux before streaming when using plex for example.
avatar
I think mkv is a much more forgiving container format. It can accept basically any audio or video format. mp4 is much more restricted, especially for audio. Neither will allow you to retain menus though. Truthfully, the best format will depend on your playback device to a great degree.
avatar
I would say mp4 container with x264 and aac-lc for video and audio options. Seems to be the most universally accepted container/codec option for streaming without transcoding.
avatar
I have redfox AnyHDDVD
avatar
Just on that. With a home server setup, what is the best format to rip discs into and keep everything to be able to be played back on a media server. I like to keep all the menus and commentary etc. but I hate having to go looking for the disc.
avatar
@NeonBible you can use DVD43 if you just want to "transparently" remove CSS and copy the files directly, or to use with DVDShrink. I wouldn't really suggest DVDShrink though, just buy a spindle of Verbatim DVD-R DLs. They cost more than twice the price of DVD-Rs but they're still cheap anyway. And as @zoidberg suggests you can backup the disc files using MakeMKV without losing disc structure.
avatar
MakeMKV can backup entire discs (including folders etc.). Just select 'backup'
avatar
With DVDshrink you'd need something like RedFox AnyDVD to remove it, but it seems alot of people use MakeMKV nowadays.
avatar
Thanks @Valeyar @DoomBot I managed to use MakeMKV to backup my DVD. Drops the menus and stuff of course, but thats ok (probably regret that later). DVDShrink couldn't get past copy protection.
avatar
Yes ... so say we all!
avatar
You're welcome, Doombot Smile
avatar
@ Jetrell Fo -- check your PM / email
avatar
Yes as long as you cut at an i-frame. You can use ffmpeg to do the cut, use the paramater "-vcodec copy" and it will force a cut on an i-frame.
avatar
Is it possible to delete a section of a .264 encode without re-encoding? I accidentally left in a few seconds of black frames in the video before encoding.
avatar
@NeonBible- http://www.dvddecrypter.org.uk/ will work but is old and no longer deeloped, http://makemkv.com/ is an updated program that can also rip dvd. With makemkv you get the free license key here- http://www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1053
avatar
Thanks for keeping this place running smooth Feallan Ok
avatar
@ NeonBible You can use https://www.videohelp.com/software/DVD-Shrink but if it has encryption then you need to remove that first. Oh and just because it says dvd-shink, you don't have to compress it, just turn that part off.
avatar
Updated the forum to MyBB 1.8.18
avatar
Hey all. Whats the best (and free) way today to rip a DVD to a video_ts? Searching google just brings up a bunch of dodgy looking software. Have a DVD which looks to be rotting so need to backup.
avatar
avatar
Cool to see that! There were glimpses of the alternate/cut footage in the documentary that aired on the Disney Channel back then. Pity the only time a 70mm print turned up on ebay the seller wanted like 30K for it.
avatar
For all of you MJ fans out there: https://youtu.be/5PDLVik_8g8

I'd love to say yes to that, poita. But, unless I upgrade my CPU, a 1080 would just bottleneck my system.
avatar
I'm selling two of my 1080Tis if anyone wants some gfx cards.

(from YT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9W5Am-a_xWw comments) "I was at a friend's unboxing an Alexa from Amazon. After setting it up, I asked it to "Open the Pod Bay doors, HAL"; it responded with "I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that." I BUSTED A GUT from laughing hysterically for at least a minute. The saddest part is the other three people in the room DIDN'T GET THE JOKE."

Uh, oh. ... https://c1.iggcdn.com/indiegogo-media-pr...wylv64.jpg ... "Open the USB, please, HAL.... *nothing* ... Hello, HAL, do you read me? What's the problem? HAL? HAL!" ... Shocked

"10 Famous Funny Commercials" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HE9nLWFZ6ac -- Not only are they weird, funny, and even gross, we can use some as extras in projects (like #4, for example).

Definitely. I recommend his look at D-Theater!

Indeed ... a very cool youtube channel for sure.

This is a great video. And yeah, it shows much of the problems with the social media... well.. better the problems with persons using them... but... you should have put a trigger warning.. Big Grin

So true. *nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more* Wink

It was just a video I found that reminded me of why boundaries can be so important.

And you can upgrade it to a XENA for $29.5K. Tongue I know you know that but just in case others are interested- http://digitalcinemasystems.net/?page_id=356

I remember when these cost over a million dollars. Now yours for $2500 Smile https://www.kitmondo.com/rank-cintel-mk3.../ref148654

Too bad our community (and the community at OT) isn't big enough to crowd fund one of those
avatar
Poita that is one of the best mastering monitors currently available not made by Dolby. There are a couple options at half the price but none reach 3k nits.
avatar
It's not the real deal it's the workprint remastered with some edits from other sources found online
avatar
I found an even better vesion of T23D: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfvD6UlKSWw This really is the only decent sequal after T2!!

Lol that's a sweet ride

Like the Gladiator remix, they were probably done in house by the french DTS team at whatever facilities that was authoring those early DVDs.
avatar
Here's another I noticed, Taxi 2 (french film) the Blu-ray have a DTS-HD MA track, but it's different from the DTS early DVD edition, that one is much more agressive. I think it might be the same for Taxi 1 as it had an early DTS release. I think most of these might be french films like Crimson River and probably La Haine.
avatar
Gladiator's mix was made by Mia Casa specifically for the DTS-ES discrete 6.1 format
avatar
The idea I believe was to convert people into buying DTS friendly players and amps.
avatar
So the "agressive mix" remains only on DVD. Example: Gladiator.
avatar
Just discovered it seems some early DVD releases with DTS soundtracks were doctored so that DTS sound way more agressive. When BR comes along, they revert to just encoding the soundtrack in DTS-HD.
