Help The Delinquents 1989 in HD (Update 2/26, capped!)
#1
This rare film with Kylie Minogue & Charlie Schlatter hasn't been released in the US, and the only versions out there are a murky looking DVD and a 4:3 Itunes UK version.


However, a few years ago a YT user by the name of Logo Archive uploaded footage of the Village Roadshow and Warner logos from an HD source of The Delinquents: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SL1OsMyz6A

Stan was the only place that had this movie in HD, but unlike ITunes regions Stan geo locks like Netflix does and was inaccessible to those outside Australia. It had been taken down afterwards, but according to Justwatch it has recently resurfaced in HD to rent on Google Play Australia https://play.google.com/store/movies/det...a5VJiNCR2I. Again, I'm unable to view it as i'm outside of Australia and don't have a VPN nor an Australian payment system to purchase it. 

If any users who reside in Australia can rent and properly cap or rip this film, this would be the chance to preserve a rare film like this before it gets taken down again.

According to this site:

https://www.justwatch.com/nz/movie/the-delinquents

It's also on Google Play New Zealand in HD to rent or buy https://play.google.com/store/movies/det...a5VJiNCR2I

Not 100% sure if this will pop up on other places like Amazon or in the US, but if anyone in Australia or New Zealand would like to take a shot at doing a good quality cap or rip, that would be great.

Update: Someone on BD.com has offered me assistance with this, but they don't have ways of getting or have an Australian or NZ account.

If anyone wants to help, PM me.

Update, a user named brettd92 was extremely generous and tried to help. He rented it from the NZ store and tried downloading it via a YT downloader, but the files wouldn't play due to some wacky DRM.

He then capped it using an Xbox one fed to his Elgato. The cap was very nice looking (a bit bloated at large file size), but was encoded at 59.94fps and wouldn't properly detelecine back to 25fps (the PAL frame rate the movie was mastered in) as it had frame rate lag issues every minute. I was able to salvage the first min or so as that part was fine converted to 25fps, so at least it wasn't a total loss and I finally got usable quality sources for the rare Village Roadshow and Warner Bros logos!

Good news is an Australian Fanres user has offered to help us out too. We worked something out with him and will purchase us an Australian Google Play Gift Card that can finally allow us rent the movie on the AUS Google account. Once there, I can try to attempt a 25fps cap with my Apple TV 4k fed to my AGPTek HDMI Game Capture device (which records to an external USB drive, but ignores HDCP and can accept+record 23.97, 24, and 25fps signals at a fairly good 11-18mbs bitrate), or find the recent version of RTMPDumpHelper and hope it can download an working MP4.

Yeah, still a shame that had to happen, but at least there was still something of use from that capture. Wish I was able to force the Xbox One in 50fps (did have it but no way to use it for apps) in case it would have it easier to half the frame rate.
