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.

Here's a list I googled.

Quote:
C A M: A CAM is a copy made using a digital video camera placed in a theatre, directed at the screen. Sound is usually taken from the camera itself, resulting in poor quality, especially with a noisy audience (assuming the theatre isn't empty). Overall the quality is normally very poor and a TS is normally just around the corner (see below).

TeleSync - TS: A TeleSync is similar to a CAM release as it also uses a digital video camera but uses an external audio source, usually the audio jack available for the hard of hearing. This means the audio quality is improved, but can still be relatively poor due to other noise. In many cases the theatre is empty when the copy is made, or the camera placed in the projection booth resulting in a better picture. Quality can be very variable so it's always suggested to check the sample or screenshots before downloading, and remember that many TS releases are mislabelled CAMs.

TeleCine - TC: A TeleCine is a copy made directly from the movie reels themselves, this is a costly process but does produce good quality audio and video, due to the cost TC releases are fairly uncommon. Again, always check the quality before downloading as it can be quite variable due to the equipment used.

R5 (and R5.LINE): Recently the major movie studios have been releasing retail dvds early in Russia (DVD region 5). They do this to stop the widespread use of pirated telecines (which were once very common). R5 retail is rushed out by the studio, they are basically competing with pirates, so there is little to no cleanup of the film after the telecine process. So the main difference between telecines put out by the pirates is that the R5's are done using pro equipment, professional studios and professional people. The quality of R5 retail is very similar to DVDSCR's, no time is usually spent cleaning up dvdscrs either.

R5.LINE indicates that the R5 didn't have English audio, so has been synced with a direct line audio track.

DVD-Screener - DVDscr: A screener is a pre-release DVD copy of the film sent out for promotion/review reasons. A screener usually has a 'ticker', a few words from the movie company warning against copying the film or words to that effect, the picture can also turn black and white while a ticker appears on screen.. A screener can also contain serial numbers and other info which is intended to indentify each screener in an attempt to trace piracy if it happens, this means such info will have to be blocked out on any copy usually with some big black boxes or blurring added after copying. This serial info can last only a few seconds or the whole film, in either case it will still have to be removed.The aspect ratio is usually letterbox (16:9) and the ticker will usually disrupt the picture. DVDscr can be excellent quality depending on the release groups skill, in many cases not much worse than a future DVDRip release.

DVD Rip: A copy made from a retail DVD, usually excellent quality of sound and video. Many appear PRE retail (before the DVD is available retail) and usually appear a few months after the US cinema launch.

DVD-R: A DVD-R - release is a image of the DVD. A DVD-R release is typically upto 4.7gig for a one sided, one layer DVD (known as a DVD5), and file sizes increase from there for a 1 sided dual layer DVD (DVD9), 2 sided single layer DVD (DVD10) and a 2 sided dual layer DVD (DVD18). DVD-R allow any users with a DVD writer drive to burn a direct copy of the original DVD with all the extras, menus and subtitles (if they havent been removed by the original ripper that is).

720p/1080i/1080p HDTV: HDTV stands for High-Definition Television and as its name suggests, it specifies a higher resolution to the viewable TV image than the existing standards. The specific resolutions used are 720p, 1080i and 1080p, with a native 16:9 aspect ratio and with resolutions of 1280x720 (progressive, hence the p), 1920x1080 (interlaced, hence the i) and 1920x1080 (progressive) respectively. A progressive source contains every horizontal line of the picture in every frame, while an interlaced source transmits half the horizontal lines per frame, with the other half coming with the next frame and is interlaced together.
Quote:
DivX / XviD: XviD is the most common codec you will find used for nearly all releases, with DivX being used on many older releases. XviD offers good quality at low file sizes and as such is used by nearly all release groups.

Why wait to find out if the quality is good? Use Bitzi first!

How to use Bitzi

Good Luck

P.S. Sorry if this doesn't apply specifically to the p2p app you're using...
