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.

Lightbulb type filter for downloads

We may specify what files we may share, but the value we place there is not used to filter downloads at all. Because of the problem of embedded links in wma and similar formats, I want to eliminate those from my search results ... automatically.

I also would like to have a "string match", where a de-limitter (such as the double quote ") means match this exactly.

It would also be nice if there were a word match, so that "hall" would not return a 'match' of "shall".

The search dialogue boxes have "Title", "Artist", "Album", "Genre" and "License" ... but if there is an Artist with a name that is a word in a Title (string), it comes back as a 'match'. When I use the extended re-search option for Artist, a keyword is appended as part of the search string, so the dialogue boxes apparently actually have value. I suppose the problem is that some people store files as "Artist - Title" while others use "Title - Artist" ... and others simply do not care.

Lightbulb filter extensions

You can filter extensions by using the keyword filter

add .wma and you will filter all wma files

same applies to all other file extensions

That sounds more like selection than filtering, but I will see what I can find about that.

Speaking of filtering, I have tried NOT to achieve something along the lines of "hall NOT shall", but that didn't work. There may be many features in LimeWire, but without some sort of manual or meaningful 'help' file, few people will ever discover what the software really can do to make searches easier, faster and worthwhile to the searcher.

All I want to do is eliminate .wma and similar files, just as it is possible to eliminate "adult content" for results of my searches. Soon after I first learned of LimeWire, I downloaded an audio file of a rather obscure song (purportedly) that turned out to contain an embedded link to a porn site. That set off a chain of links to about a dozen related sites before I was able to close everything down. So I am paranoid about those file types, and don't want to even have them presented to me. It seems that most of the titles in which I have a special interest have been returned as available ... in .wma form ... and in my excitement at finding the rarity, I have clicked on the download for them. Then I really looked at the file being downloaded, and realized that I wanted no part of it ... ad cancelled the download.

With the varied ways in which people store their files, it would take 2*n-1 different search arguments to specify only the .mp3 forms of a song title. (Since any of the n words in the search argument could be found next to the file type.) Just how difficult could it be to apply the same filter we can specify in "files to be shared" to "files to be searched"?

Perhaps you are implying that ¬ may work? At least, that is the mathematical symbol for NOT, and would make sense ... or !shall?

open the options tab then filters then keyword and add it there. I am sorry for not pointing that out before. I understand how my answer could be misinterpreted

I have no idea how to help you with the "hall" coming up as "shall" problem

But I asure you that adding file extensions to the keyword filter works. I use that option myself to filter out .wma .wmv .asf .mov and sometimes other filetypes depending what I am lookin for.

remember to put the "." before the name of the fileextension to make it more effective and don't write *.wma only .wma

this will make your searches alot more effective, also if you want an avi but not a mpeg or similar you just add it before your search and remove it after you found what you were looking for

Also not all wma files are corrupt. Sometimes you will only find a song in wma format. Don't lose faith in the program only because you had one runin with some malware.

Use Bitzi to look the searchresult. You will often get helpful info there. And ALWAYS scan the file before opening them the first time.

I just followed your excellent 'cook book' instructions, and re-did a search that has turned up dozens of unwanted .wma's and similar in the past. No .WMAs! Thank you!!!

P.S. That same search just returned the very obscure result I was looking for. uni-sex if you're female.

Hahaha sorry I couldn't help but have a laugh.

File Definition & separation within LW

Ok the reason i'm posting is a difficult one which is probably an impossibility. As it may well depend on OS classifications of extensions, definitions, etc.

What I'd like to see is a clarification of video formats. Be that filtering results or just some way of separating them. What am I talking about .. here: mpg/mpeg can mean anything from mpeg 1, 2 or 4 for filesharing. Mpeg 4 can mean a large range of variations & parts. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPEG4 to see what I mean. They all may require separate codecs to open. Being able to identify an mpeg before downlding would be very handy!!!

AVI is the same. AVI is such a vague term ... a little like quicktime ... which can be any format. AVI can even be mpeg 4. It can also be quite a no. of other things.

So if you're getting a rough understanding of what I'm meaning now, some way of separating the definition of these files found in searches would be very beneficial. eg: H.264 format. or files compatible with iPod import. Or files that are known to be compatible with your particular version of burner. eg: DivX 3 or 5 ... etc.

So is this purely an OS definition thingy or can LW do better?

Whilst we're on the topic, a separation between mp3 & mp3pro would also be good! Since mp3pro is only good for very low bit rates & iTunes can't play mp3pro which is not a major loss but a nuisance. And people simply don't know why some of their low bit rate files won't play in iTunes. !!! Edit: That's if they were encoded at low bit rates. mp3pro could be used at any bit rate depending on the player.

Can't really say that different codecs cause me many problems

Go to http://www.afreecodec.com/

and download afreeCodecVT. It's a window that you drag your moviefile to and it identifies the exact coded being used both video and audio. The same page also has many other helpful downloads.

Also at http://www.digital-digest.com

you will find alot of helpfull stuff

+ Nero is always trying to include more and more codecs for their software, so even if your current version won't support it, just go and see if they don't have a update ready for you

That of course implies that you bought and paid for your Nero
It is one of the few programs out there that is actually worth the money they (undercharge) for it

You're missing the point. If a person want's to download specifically a H.264 format video, they have not a clue whether what they're downlding is one or not. That also includes mpeg4. Both of which are the only formats iPod are able to import.

If a person is downlding an avi file, they too have not a clue what type of file it really is unless there's a clue within the filename itself.

Some people would prefer to downld specifically what they're seeking rather than having to convert them to yet another (lossy) format when they're after a specific format for a particular purpose. It's a little like converting mp3 to mp3 or mp3 to m4a. If you downld what you're specifically after then there may not be any need to convert at all. This includes not only iPod but also DVD. Since nowadays many dvd players can also play DivX format, or whatever. So why downld a file in another format & have to convert it to divx when it's not what you were expecting. At present there's no way of telling what you're downlding! An avi file could be anything. An mpeg could be any type of mpeg. Ask a mac user how many formats a QuickTime video file can be in. Basically almost anything under the sun. It could be a high definition video or it could be a crappy less than vcd quality video file. That's b/c numerous codecs can be used to convert it or be saved into. Same for avi.

BTW I use a mac. My Roxio handles most files very well as far as burning goes. For computer playback, VLC also does the job.

My reference to DivX earlier or later versions or Indeo versions 3, 4 or 5 is because not everybody has the latest burners. And even VLC cannot play indeo 4 or 5. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/features.html
