Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Greetings Meganxx,

Welcome to the Gnutella forums!

Your problem, most likely, is an issue with CODECs (coding/de-coding files necessary to play various videos) that are not included with WMP.

I recommend you download a better player, such as POT Player, that comes packed with virtually all current CODECs. The program is free and can be easily found on the Internet.

For more info on this and other tips for the best downloads (and which ones to avoid) see: Are You New To Limewire? Please Read This: Movie download issues
Be sure to scroll down to the post from LOTR.
Enjoy!

Default POT Player?

Hi Blackhorse

You know, I've never heard of the POT Player and normally, for the type of problem Meganxx has, I would recommend VLC or GOM, which I still use.

However, I will now give POT a try but I just have one small point, I came across a site that wanted to give you a downloader, along with POT, so that you would be served with adverts and other assorted rubbish, sites like these should be avoided.

Default POT Player (Part Two)

Blacknorse

I've just installed the POT Player and it has more controls than I am used to but I like it.

It seems to be clearer in tone than my other media players, obviously I cannot give a full evaluation but what I have seen I like. However, I still have to work my way around it in order to get its best but so far so good.

I'm listening to Bobby Womack's "(If You Want My Love) Put Something Down On It" at the moment and, guess what, the player auto-selected all my saved Womack tracks and is playing them just like the way we used to play albums back in the day (wow).

Currently grooving to "Across 110th St".

POT is an improved version of KM Player, by the same (Korean, I believe) author. It's lightweight and has all the same features as VLC & GOM, plus an extra or two that I don't recall. (Might have been the ability to save still images from video, or to extract music, or some other bells and whistles).

Since it is freeware the usual wankers will offer it with various add-ons, while others try to sell it. I got my copy from a site with user reviews (CNet, softpedia, or some similar site). I do seem to recall that a downloader was offered (to work from within the player) but, if so, I would have opted out.


Your post landed before mine.
Yeah, I just today noticed how it grabs all songs by the same artist (it actually selects groups based on the first word in the filename). kewl

PS3™ | Types of files that can be played

ps3 might be restricted from playing some *patent* formats such as 3ivx, etc., no idea. But what can often be an issue for players is an odd mix of audio with video type within a particular media container type. For example, VBR mp3 with video in an AVI container can cause playback problems for many players. The VBR instead of CBR being the issue. AVI is itself often an issue because it is an extremely old file container that has not been updated in many years (8-10 years) by Microsoft to cater properly for advancements in video and audio formats and subtitles, chapters, etc.

In fact in the link above, there's no mention of mp3 compatibility in either the video or music section. Only mentions mp2 compatibility. I do not know if that is the case in practice. If it is the case, then any video with mp3 audio will no doubt be problematic.

According to Wikipedia: AVI container: "H.264/AVC is problematic due to the limited B-frame support. Vorbis audio is problematic." Lack of direct chapter or subtitle support. No menu support. No 3D support. Whereas the MP4 and mkv containers support all these things.

Without a ps3 I cannot test. At worst you may need to reconvert the problematic videos. Recommended would be to convert the videos to H264 format (X264 is better) with either PCM audio or ACC (MP4) audio.

Alternatively, I don't know if it's possible, but playback via computer to your ps3. That would be the best alternative I could think of. But I've never even used a ps3 lol. I presume ps3 would allow for line input for both video and audio. I use firewire for my video+audio transmission to TV from my computer for example. ps3 probably has USB input at least.

Guys

Old technology, as long as it works and is still useful then I'll keep on using it (that's why I still use MS Word97 as my WP).
