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.

Default What does mp4 mean?

Usually when I am downloading movies I choose .avi files because I seem to have the least problems with my limited knowledge of all the different 'formats' and what is required to run them.
I am trying to download a movie and can only get an excellent quality version in mp4 so I would like to know what that means and also what software is required to run it, please?

Usually it would be x264 format video and either ac3 or aac format audio. VLC should play it or pretty much any codec pack installed will allow you to play it with e.g. WMP. Personally I prefer the Combined Community Codec Pack and MPC (included in the pack), but remember only 1 codec pack should be installed on a system at any given time.

Hi Sleepless,
Well, that just goes to show how little I know. None of that meant anything to me. I just don't know what any of those terms mean but anyway, it turned out that the file was corrupt and my computer archived it. So frustrating because I am longing to have that kid's movie and there is not a single .avi copy which is not corrupt. Why do people do it? It is so nasty and childish and I wish there were a way Limewire would take responsibility for checking everything on their site. There must be a way that everything can be run through a scan similar to a backup.
Thanks again. It looks as though I will just have to stay with .avi and if I can't find the movie in that format, go without.
Regards...

No one runs the Gnutella network. The network is people like you and the ones you download from or upload to. All Limewire does is provide a client for connecting you. And I seriously doubt that Limewire LLC will start checking all the files to see which ones really are your movie, especially considering the legal repercussions such a move could start.

If you google any of the terms, they will be the top result. I am not going to write +5,000 words explaining things, which have just on this forum been explained many many times before and several thousand times elsewhere on the Internet. WMP is Windows Media Player, MPC is Media Player Classic, VLC is a video player etc. etc.

Apart from that I gather when you said archived, you meant quarantined as in your antivirus caught it. This is very unlikely if this was a +700MB file which almost all movies are.. unless they are for ipod or the likes (really small screen)

Hi Sleepless,
Yes, my antiviral program caught the program but, one thing I have noticed since installing the new version is that people are not putting the correct information. For instance, the will put 5.78MB instead of 578 MB. They don't fill out the view information correctly like putting in the length of the movie so you just don't know what you are getting. I rely on Bitzi and if I can't find it on Bitzi I just don't bother. Some people are really upset and put comments saying just how they feel, like "you drongo, a movie is longer than three minutes". I don't understand why everyone doesn't help each other, as you do, rather than misnaming movies or setting someone up for a Trojan. I guess I wish the world were an ideal place but it seems silly to waste time causing others distress.
Again, thank you for your help. I pick up a little here and there but I don't understand the jargon because people do tend to use acronyms which are rather unhelpful.
Cheers...

You would be learning everything much quicker if you relied on Google as well. Like the odds of getting a proper rip at only 578MB size is slim to none. I would go as far as say anything below 686MB i.e 700 muinus 2% will be a waste of time 99.9% of the time.

I would recommend you read through this also http://www.gnutellaforums.com/limewi...ind-music.html While it says music, it's just as much a guide on how to use Limewire. Also for movies, check out the link at the very end of first post. Limewire isn't all that great for movies.

Also here is a lot more about formats, codec, players etc. CODECs list for Movies/Audio/Alternate players / Video help forums/ video-mp3 fixers

Dance Thanks again for your help

Hi Sleepless,
Thanks again for your help and time. That is really helpful and I have been following your advice. You are certainly right where it comes to Limewire not being that good for movies. My Canadian friend has just spent three months out here and, having an IT son, has been able to help me a lot with the problems I was experiencing. I think he and his computer are joined at the hip as he works on opening a world wide photo library via the 'net. Between you I am feeling more confident on how to get around and find what I want. Thank you again so very much. Regards... Perre
