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.

Question Videos including music videos with no sound (WTF)!

I recently downloaded a music video using Shareaza as well as another video file and both downloaded like the old Raid pesticide commercial with image but no sound!

In fact most of the videos I was attempting to download at the time had no sound when I previewed them and at first being a novice on this program thought that the previews had no sound but then just a single one of the many videos I had been downloading previewed with sound. So my question is why are most videos on Shareaza apparently without sound?

Most videos aren't with sound when previewed. That's because that code is old
And it got lost, so we don't have the source anymore.

But you might try using a big codec pack: Download K-Lite Mega Codec Pack

What exactly do you mean by code?
In alll my time using P2P programs this is totally new for me I had never come accross videos that ran out of sound for the "code" being old!

And it seems to be nearly just about every damn video music or otherwise being shared on Shareaza too! I'm downloading a Pink music video and it seems to have the same exact problem. So basically one cannot reliably download videos of any kind using this program right?

I'm talking about the preview code.
When you downloaded the full movie, you should be able to have music.

If not, then it's codec-related.

Oh OK but I'm telling you that is not what is happening in this case because it gets even weirder!

Now as I said I cancelled the downloads that had no audio, well I attempted to dowload them again and now the Audio is there!

Is almost like the first time you try for some reason the download ignores the video's soundtrack (And no they do not even have a soundtrack the first time around I checked using Video Edit Magic) and then for some unexplained sniglet of the universe it downloads the whole thing the second attempt!

Go figure!

Just wait till your whole movie is downloaded.
Don't mind about the preview code. We can't fix that.

Question That Codecs link really messed things up here!

Now that you mention Codecs the ones I downloaded from the link here have really messed things up now! First most AVIS would not play on WMP or Shareaza's player at all so I had to remove the newly installed codecs completely and now some videos appear inverted of all things! What's the cure? Re-compile them in a another compression format? What?


And I'll take what you said under advisement but I already had the bad experience of downloading a music video clip with no sound so I rather not take any chances. It is obvious that the dowloading routines for Shareaza are a bit quirky so I rather play it as safe as possible.

EDIT: Never mind about the Codec inverted video problem I somehow was able to fix it on my own...

1) If there's a codec problem, then it's most likely you screwed it up. You need to uninstall all codecs first before installing new ones. That's a general wisdom.

2) Shareaza does not trick around with your videos. It's only meant to transfer universal data. If the problem would occur by the networks Shareaza use, then other programs like Morpheus or Gnucleus, would have the same problems.
Shareaza makes a new file to save the preview in, so it doesn't mess around with the real file you're downloading.
