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.

Try downlding VLC (has in-built codecs.) If the file won't play with VLC then chances are you got a hold of a corrupt file. You may need to try again. Try previewing the file whilst dwnlding with LW so you can know if the file is ok or not. But to peview the file it must have at least a few % already dwnlded, the more the better. eg: 1% of a 60 min video file will be about 36 secs. 5 % would be 3 mins. For a movie it should be over 500 MB in size or else it may be fake or poor quality.
If you'er dwnlding recent release material, beware of T1 & T3 sources. See: http://www.gnutellaforums.com/showth...560#post112560

Nope and nope.

VLC doesn't support burning features like WMP and Real do (all the better if you ask me. The reason why WMP and Real are such high-risk players is because their respective developers tried to put too many functions in their products).
However, you can (and you should) get a Burning application.
Nero is kind of the standard burning application destined for MS Windows. I don't think that they give away free copies of it (maybe you can find a demo somewhere but I don't really think so) so you're gonna haveta buy it or find another burning software that is good enough and is free.

Question burning the download

hi there

followed your suggestion and got hold of nero smartsuite6.3.1.20f and the d/l plays just as well through the showtime as it does through vlc however when i burned it through nero the video playback was twice the speed whilst the audio remained "normal" which is how it plays when through wm and real. Is this to do with the files codec, hard drive acceleration or is there something quite simple that i am missing or failing to do
any suggestions mush appreciated

thanx
jason

Have you checked for any updates for your Nero? It sounds like a frame-rate issue. If so it could be for a no. of reasons. Are you sure it was the standard format that your dvd player uses? (ie: PAL/NTSC/SECAM - which use different frame rates.) Is your player compatible with more than one format? In my country all players are made to be compatible with them all. Some have switches/buttons/menu options on them so you can switch over to the other format. Did you try playing the disk on your computer?

Some people change the frame-rate as a means of helping to compress the file.

Did you burn it to cd/dvd?

Well pikachu, since you posted already then I figure you don't have a problem with that anymore.
As for downloading to burn, you first must get a hold of a P2P application.
If you already have one, then post back with the info.

Smile

just to let you know how I've got on!!!!!!!!
once downloaded, we were able to play thru vlc ! as suggested i got nero, which didn't really do the business until just messing around realised that the d/l i was trying to burn wasn't in a recognised format for dvd (has to convert .avi/xvid into vso/fob etc.. format) SO using the nero on one hand and another program on the other hand i was able to re-code the d/l and then burn it thru onto a dvd.

so just to say thanks for all the prompts and help along the way!!

jason
