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.

Downloading is easy. Search for the video download it - for larger files you should have at least ADSL or it needs ages.

To copy it on a tape. I didn┤t try it but it should work with a TV card. Connect your PC to the video (via the card), play the movie and record it while playing, as on TV.

For DVDs you need a DVD burner, without it it isn┤t possible to make a DVD. And of course you need burning software which supports DVD burning (all newer/better ones should do it).

The first problem is I have down loaded two movies on in mpg and one in avi. I have not been able to get eatherto play on my Mac.

I have a Mac G5 dual 2 Gig, with 2 Meg of ram and the Formac TVR.

I have the TVR connected to a VCR and am trying to record a movie that I recorded and stored on my hard disk from a DVD.

When I try to record to the VCR I do not seem to get picture or sound to the VCR. I are RCA jacks connected to the TVR and VCR. As best I can tell they are connected correctly. I can play a video tape to the computer screen through the TVR so I know the RCA jacks a right from the VCR to the TVR. I have the RCA jacks going from the TVR to the VCR also. I have a TV connected to the VCR and can get a pre-recorded VCR movie to play on the TV.

The problem seems to be that I am not getting any signal from the TVR to the VCR.

This is really two problems; One being able to play movies that I download. Second, how to record them.

Did you try the codecs?

For the other problem, you should ask the manufacturer of the video recorder, hotline or something like this.

I downloaded "Scary Movie" in the mov format and it played. But it was only a movie preview. I played it twice and the first time QT quit.

Do I just put them all in the same folder? Also when I try to open a movie does the computer look for the codecs until finds on that it can use and open the movie?

As I said I am not a Mac user, but they should work the same way like the codecs you installed already, you don┤t neeed do choose a folder (at least not on Woindows). I will send Stief a PM (he is my Mac adviser ).

Nice equipment you have there BAtoload, and Morgwen sure went to a lot of work to help you.

For installing the stuff, just follow the directions that come with the installers (I'm assuming you are using Panther). If you are on OS 9, the Indeo codecs are just dropped on the system folder, but if no dialogue pops up, drag them to the extensions folder and QT will find them.

For help with your other questions, try the Apple G5, Panther or QT forums at http://discussions.info.apple.com. The iMovie forum gets quite detailed about hardware connections.
