I don't remember for sure if i already asked you this but if i remember correctly didn't you used to have some of SMBSS episodes recorded from television ore Kids Klassics ?
I was hoping maybe you could help me out.
I'm still trying to find a few soundtracks and live action segments to complete my collection.
Currently i have almost preserved all original broadcast audio tracks in near DVD quality.
Can you send me a message if you still have them and are willing to help me out ?
Maybe we can trade something ?
Goku22 replied to Goku22's topic in Recommendations & ReviewsHi Badguys, thanks for the input just wondering do you happen to know if the King mario of cramalot episode include the zelda cartoon preview on Pluto airings ? Also terrible sorry to everyone for the lack of updates on this topic. I've just been a bit too busy with a lot stuff to actually even watch my own dvds to even provide a honest review on them. Also i just want to throw it out their, recently the German market seems to have been able to release the full series onto dvd. We can thank https://www.pidax-film.de for this. The released a total of 4 volumes, each volume includes up to 2 a 3 of the never released live action segments. I took a gamble on them because i wasn't sure if the information was really legit. I've often see incorrect dvd information listed on tv series so i was a bit skeptical when the where first annouced. But still decided to buy them and the good news the really include all the live action segments so that's fantastic news for everyone wanting to own these on dvd. Now be warned the sets are advertised as beeing dual audio so English / German dub. However the zelda live action segments are only provided in german dub no english audio is available on them. Also a other issue a lot of scenes are missing. For example the Zelda previews and the scenes that segued into them are not included. The original NTSC bumpers are not included and even the endings where Captain Lou Albano and Danny Wells with the guest stars say untill next time has been cut from all episodes. So that's something everyone should be aware off which isn't mentioned on the site of course. Three specific episodes are even missing extra scenes: Treasure of the Sierra Brooklyn ( the mario head transition seems to have been cut short on this one ) The Magic Love ( is missing his complete mario head transition including a little bit of footage before it ) George Washington Slept Here ( this one is full of errors i have no idea what the did with this one. It's missing a giant scene in the middle and for some reason the cartoon beginning is sped up. When set to English the untill next time everybody vocals are still present while the end credits is already playing ). As for the video quality these dvds are not new scans the are in fact NTSC dvd copies. The simply converted them from 29.97i to 25p and upscaled them to PAL resolution 720x576. Resulting in inferior quality and besides the conversion the also applied dynamic noise reduction. The audio quality is good similar to the NTSC releases. As for the cover songs, get this, all of them are included in the german dub. But when switching to English the audio plays the generic DIC stock music. So i have no idea why the German dub can just use the songs while the original series has to be censored ... I find it annoying because i actually really like the 80s pop music and to me it's part of the show the should have never censored it to begin with. When i have the time i'll be sure to update this topic with some raw screenshots. That's all for now regarding the Pidax releases.
Goku22 replied to Goku22's topic in Mako ReactorYeah i thought i'd share it here sins subtitles are mostly used with anime series. Like @MaxxCatt mentioned if you have the latest VLC you are safe. They fixed it already. Also thanks @Superoswald for clearing that up i wasn't aware this vulnerability was related to only .zip archived subtitles. Makes sense because it would be pretty strange if someone would be able to embedded malicious stuff in .ass , .srt files etc.
I've been wanting to do a comparison between the various Super Mario Bros. Super Show / Legend of Zelda DVD, VHS and streaming releases for a while. I hope anyone interested in collecting the series wil have use for it. This is my buying guide for you on which releases to get and why. In my comparisons i try to include details on the quality, languages, extras and even specifically mention if something is missing has been changed ore was added ect. Little history about the show. The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! is an American television series based upon Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 2. The show was produced by DiC and was distributed by Viacom Enterprises. When it originally broadcasted in 1989 the show ran from Monday to Friday. In total the series consisted out of 52 Super Mario Bros and 13 Legend of Zelda cartoons. Each episode began with a live-action segment starring Captain Lou Albano and Danny Wells. During the summer of 1990 DIC tried to make the show more 90s by replacing the live-action segments with a show called Club Mario. In its original form 41 Mario episodes included pop music from the 80s. The music played during the cartoon's were mostly removed and replaced on later airings / releases. This GUIDE includes both NTSC and PAL releases. --------------------------------------------------------------------- DVD releases: Title: Shout Factory The Super Mario Bros.

Goku22 posted a topic in Mako ReactorI just came across this news on a other website and i thought i'd share it here with everyone so everybody can take precautions. It seems popular streaming platforms such as VLC, Kodi (XBMC), Popcorn-Time and strem.io have vulnerabilities. Check Point researchers revealed a new attack vector which threatens millions of users worldwide – attack by subtitles. Apparently it is possible to craft malicious subtitle files which can be included with any video. When an victim’s media player plays ore downloads a subtitle file through a streaming device the attackers can take complete control over the device. Here's a link to the full article: http://blog.checkpoint.com/2017/05/23/hacked-in-translation/ Kodi, VLC, Popcorn Time and Stremio are the platforms on which the researchers tested their hack, but they expect that many other media players are also vulnerable. The aforementioned parties are informed in advance and have the vulnerabilities according to Check Point already partially solved, while further research is done. VLC and Stremio have updated their software released to fix the vulnerability. The team behind Kodi will have the vulnerability being addressed in version 17.2 For users of VLC: be sure to check manually if your version number is version 2.2.6 sins it doesn't always update to the latest right away.
