Are there torrents yet of HD-DVD backups? Of course when you own the original DVD. If not, Blu-Ray?
Well; according to the news article a little while ago; there's supposedly somebody that has a software out that can backup HD-DVD Discs [no specifics on blu-ray though; not sure...]; although I doubt that anyone has got any out as torrents [yet].
....Currently; I'm pretty sure all that's out there right now for HD rips is stuff that was captured off of television. [i.e. captured off of HD broadcast channels]
i think the hd-dvd's would be a gigs to download so i dont think there will be to many yet...stress the word yetbut probably would take forever
There has been HD Warez for a long time now. I cant comment on torrents, becasue i dont use them. But many of my sources (Ie Usenet,and private ftps) have many HD rips. Note that Most of the HD rips are from PVRs, so there not Hd-DVD copies. But since HD-DVD security has been compromised, you can expect to see them soon. Sofar i have not seen a true HD-DVD for DL. And 15GB is alot, but if you have good access (No torrents) you can DL this in 2-3 hours.
@Bigperm88: What do you use for playback of h.264 encoded HD *.ts files?
I can't speak for Bigperm88, but I use CoreAVC (legally purchased) with Media Player Classic. Flawless playback (no stutter) of 1080p/i H.264 .ts @ 20 MBit/Sec average with MBAFF interlacing on my X2 4600. Just thought I'd butt in
@tailschao: Thanks for the info. I'll try this tonight.
Update on topic:
The First HD DVD Movie Hits BitTorrent
wow. 19+ Gigs. 201 files x 103mb. Uploaded in 10 hours @ 599 KB/s
Sry for the late reply, been to busy to check forums. I use CoreAVC as well (I think, gotta double check when i get home) with VLC player. And i also experience great playback, with no shutters on a P4 3.4
AFAIK vlc uses it's own decoders, so if you have CoreAVC installed then it won't be being used.
Sry for this double post. Superman returns has hit Usenet.
295files x 83 megs each. Ouch. Thank god Toshiba has released there 1 TB drive.
So what you are saying is that i was overcomplicating things.
Im gonna try PowerDVD 6.5 HD tonight, with the X360 drive and see how it works.
Thanks for the heads up.
alt.binaries.hdtv and alt.binaries.hdtv.repost
assuming that's what your asking!
EDIT: Slightly O/T, but 'Serenity', 'Pitch Black', 'Superman Returns', 'Equilibrium', 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang', 'Huo Yuan Jia' and 'Miami Vice' HD-DVD rips have been posted to abhdtv so far. Also 'The Mummy', 'Mission Impossible 3' and 'Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut' are being posted as we speak. Didn't take long did it!
Where can I find these hd-dvd torrents? Also, would anyone know where i could find the old tv show called "DO-OVER" >?
once you get the file what do you do with it? I have the xbox360 hd dvd player, would I play it using Power DVD and stream it to the xbox or what? or do you guys who are watching these have HD computer monitors or something?
I would say that most people use PowerDVD and their graphics card to output directly to their TV. This is from one of the nfo's that came with a HD-DVD rip:
BTW, all computer monitors are HD, that is, higher than 480/576p. That's what makes them different from TVs.
can anyone help me out
I dunno, sorry. I don't use torrents.
Google answers soooo many questions.
torrents are for the weak.
On-Topic. Man, it didnt take long, wow, i didnt expect so many releases, so fast.
