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. 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.

Hello
I'm a newbie and know very little about burning downloaded files onto dvd disks. What is the proper file extentsion for a dvd movie? I want to burn it onto dvd disk without having 2 convert it into dvd format from say .avi etc so that it will play on any dvd player other than my computor. Please advise.

The only type of DVD burner I've ever used is Nero and it converts the movie or video into DVD format when it's burnt onto disc.

Nero 7 is the one because it has all the codecs that other versions didn't. Including divX. Nero 7 will do it all for you! Just as CyberStalker said!

The common file type for dvd's is .vob (the data file) and I believe you WILL have to convert to this format.

Your burners controlling software package, Nero, DVD Santa, etc needs to convert/encode the source file, eg: (your) movie.avi/mpg/mpeg etc, into this file format before it can be played on non computor based DVD players.

Two other files will also be created/split off, at this time, so as the external DVD players can recognise what to play, a .ifo (file), & a .bup (file)

The resulting "new" file string will look like the following:
Vts_01_0.bup ??KB BUP File
Vts_01_0.ifo ??KB DVD Movie Info
Vts_01_1.vob ???,???KB DVD Movie {the actual movie}

I hope this has helped

The file format you need if you do not want a "conversion" to occur during the burning process is a 720 x 576 3000 to 9000kb/s 48hz (or ntsc equivilent) Mpeg2. But you will still need to "author" it to DVD format. This file format is extremely rare on P2P due to its sheer size in relation to the general 320 x 240 1500kb/s AVI file most video is stored in.

To download a raw DVD file structure (IE able to burn without conversion or authoring) would be extremely dificult, because even if someone was sharing all the files from a DVD, they are generally named the same across different DVD's, and you would have no idea of exactly what files belong to which DVD, or whih ones are the ones you need.

I have Nero 7 Ultra Edition and have absolutely no idea how to use it. I have 6 full movies downloaded to my Shared folder and I can only see them with the Nero Showtime, can anyone tell me please step by step what to do so I can burn it to a dvd I can watch on any DVD Player. I'm afarid they take up too much memory space on the computer somehow and I want to burn them to dvds and delete to keep downloading and burning more. Good luck Tonithetigress. Let me know what you find out if you can.Thanks everybody. Desperate. This is a really good forum.

use it to convert your files to DVD format, then look up your help on Nero to see how to burn it from there.
