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.

Default Help please! A Vodei problem!!!!!

This is the most annoying thing ever!
A lot of videos I've downloaded in the past few days have given me this message: Vodei MP 2 or newer required to play etc...

Anyway : I downloaded it from 'and it was working fine for a while 'although some of the movie's still would not play, and it even says on the website that you don't have to register in order to use it, a short while later it stopped and demanded me to register (PAY) ha ha ha
So! I browsed some forums and I've seen a lot of people say it is a scam, but some have said that you simply have to download it from the correct site and it works fine.
I also saw people giving links to other programs that let you kind-of hack into the movie and change some settings or letters or what-ever, but that takes too much time, especially for just previewing a file, and then there's a way to convert the video with some other software, which is even harder again.

So can someone please tell me where to get Vodei or even something else that will do the job, because most of the video's did work.

I have not come across such a video. If a video does not play with VLC player I would not trust it. Simple as that.
BTW VLC prevents any video sending you to a questionable logger website.

It doesn't send me to any site 'it just comes up at the start of the video, and it also happens using the VLC player.
I don't really want to delete them either at least till I see what they look like.
These Vodei guys are bloody pricks, I heard a rumor that they hack into the Codec of the torrents and change it to Vodei format

There's a modified version of it which isn't part of the scam set up by some random guys, but I yet have to find it, the page with the setup details is over 3 years old so it's outdated.

It's strange that you've never come across it considerring it's around so long and there's no way of telling if the download is going to have it or not.

All I know right now is! I REALLY REALLY HATE VODEI...

I found a link on another forum for this tool called Vodecoder

It removes Codec that Vodei put on it, and it only takes about 30 seconds, then the video is back to normall.

The only problem is that it can only Unincrypt the files that show the screen with the red movie theatre, chairs etc...
but most movies you'l find will have the red 1.

It's very easy to do

1.Download this ZIP :
and save it to your harddrive, DON'T use open in the downloaddialog
2.Go to the save location and extract all the files
The extracted files should be:
3.Double click "VoDecoder.exe" to run the program
4.Press "No" at the warning
5Select "Option"->"Import keyfile" or press F6 on your keyboard
6.Select the "Vodeikeys.vdk" file that was included in, and extracted from, the ZIP
7.A message will tell you it sucessfully imported 2 keys


When you get to step 6 you may not see any option to select "VodeiKeys.vdk".
It's simple to fix, just drag it from it's source into the documents folder which contains the selectable files, and repeat step 6.

And that's it you can give Vodei the middle finger... All thanks to a guy called Peter.

And most importantly! You don't need Vodei to do this 'so don't download it 'because it's evil...
