Bearshare 5.2.5 = problems?
Last month BearShare updated us and now most of the
the downloading movies
are highlighted in red - as in problematic, or something.
And, hardly any movies will even copy anymore; unless
its a really fast-copying movie, like [edit]. Is it just that
5.2.5 is a bad version?
Should I just find an earlier version
and lose everything I have copying now?
(some movies take 2 months and more to

5.2.5 is definitely untrustworthy, especially if recently updated, because the people in control of it
right now are closely associated with the RIAA and have been seen recently trying to steal Shareaza too.

If you get the version in this other thread and install it right on top of the 5.2 version, your
downloads should still work, and in fact are much more likely to complete.

For subtitling existing foreign movies....
Thanks for the info on the Bearshare thingy. We have some movies that
need subtitles or voices (for dubbed over ones) but are afraid to download
another program that could cause problems - can you suggest one that is
known for its safe-ness? Another thing, is Limewire better than Bearshare?
Does it cause less problems? And do they have as many movies?

They are on exactly the same network. BearShare would give you a slight advantage in
performance because it is built for Windows and not a Java program. It also allows you to see
more information about the sources, making it easy to spot fakes and misnamed files.

For subtitles, run a parallel search for .sub and .srt files. Also don't forget to browse the
sources where you found the movie. If the filename before the .srt or .sub is an exact match to
the movie it is probably timed correctly.

There are also several web sites that specialize in subtitles. Start finding and bookmarking
them all and they'll be handy for the future.
