  1. Yeah 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.
  2. 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 now. I hope anyone interested in the series wil have use of it. I'm going to try and create a overview on each release. Including details on the quality, languages, extras and even specifically mention if something is missing has been changed ore was added ect. Please note: snapshots taken to compare the footage was done in VLC in PNG format. Deinterlacing was disabled. Sins i don't own every single release out their if someone here owns one i don't, please send me some pictures and details and i'll add it to this topic thanks. 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. --------------------------------------------------------------------- DVD releases: Title: Shout Factory The Super Mario Bros.

The Extra Creepy #18 The Adventures of Sherlock Mario / Plumbers of the Year #23 Mario and Joliet / Fake Bro #24 Too Hot to Handle / Time Out Luigi #25 Hooded Robin and His Mario Men / Flower Power Special Features: Concept art from the worlds DVD Quality: The good part the episodes are pretty much uncut just like the way the originally aired on TV. All the original commercial bumpers are pretty much included except for one. It has all the original Untill next time everybody parts and also the Zelda previews. It's a shame however that Shout Factory used filters on the episodes. Some scenes unfortunately look really over sharpened and comparing it to a other source i can tell a denoising filter was used too. It looks decent in some scenes especially the ones where characters are drawn big. Missing footage: Shout Factory used the Family Channel re-run master tape for King Mario of Cramalot. The Family Channel's reruns of the series removed the Legend of Zelda previews and the scenes that segued into them from the live-action segments. The episode is also slowed down to bring it back to it's original length. A extra fade in and fade out is included for the placement of a extra commercial break. The original commercial bumpers are not included for King Mario of Cramalot. The DIC logo on the end of the episodes seems to have been faded out removing the Viacom ending. The Domino's pizza sponsor logos have been cut. Except for one scene in Episode #11 Jungle Fever around 09:32 all cover songs have been replaced with stock music from DIC Entertainment. Episode #25 Hooded Robin and His Mario Men is missing some sound effects throughout the cartoon. Most likely Dic Entertainment forgot to add them back in when the changed the music. Screenshots: Title: The Super Mario Bros Super Show - Volume One 2004 Language: English Subtitles: none Region: Region 2 Number of discs: 1 Episodes included: 6 Aspect Ratio: 4:3 - 1.33:1 DISC 1: #1 The Bird! The Bird! / Neatness Counts #3 Butch Mario & the Luigi Kid / All Steamed Up #2 King Mario of Cramalot / Day of the Orphan #4 Mario's Magic Carpet / Marianne and Luigeena #5 Rolling Down the River / The Mario Monster Mash #6 The Great Gladiator Gig / Bonkers from Yonkers DVD Quality: The footage is 25fps interlaced, resolution 720x576. Occasionally compression artifacts are present in the footage. Most of time this happens around the parts that got cut like the commercial bumpers. The Saban international logo is included after the outro instead of the DIC / Viacom logo. The video quality has been left untouched. No cropping, denoising ore sharpening where applied. It must be noted the used the correct master tape for King Mario of Cramalot / Day of the Orphan on this DVD release. Not the Family Channel re-run. The episode runs on the correct speed and the extra fade in / out is not present. However because the Zelda scenes / commercial bumpers are not included on this DVD this episode is still not complete. Missing footage: - Zelda previews including the live-action segments scenes that segued into them. - Commercial bumpers - The DIC Entertainment / Viacom ending What makes this release special: All the original cover songs are included in this release: "Surfin' Bird" (The Trashmen) "Rawhide" (Frankie Laine) "Bad" (Michael Jackson) "Magic Carpet Ride" (Steppenwolf) "Proud Mary" (Creedence Clearwater Revival) "Shaddap You Face" (Joe Dolce) Screenshots: ------ Topic To be continued soon sorry for the wait guys!
  3. The 13 legend of zelda live action segments from the Mario Bros are not included in the UK / Australian release either. Netflix and the complete DVD set from Australian are pretty much the same source. The only difference the Australian set didn't include "The unzappables / Club Mario" and is also missing Rolling down the river. The Quality is a bit better on the DVDs of course and it's NTSC . I personally like the quality better on them then the Shout Factory ones because the are not sharpend and are also not denoised. Resulting in a lot more fine details in the picture which where lost in the Shout Factory version. The UK cartoons have better line art then the NTSC versions but unfortunately the are 25fps. Currently the only dvds that include live action segments which where not on Netflix is on the Complete Legend of Zelda DVD set by Shout Factory. And also on a separate DVD release called Mario Mania which includes "Slime Busters".
  4. @BAC0NB0Y I'm planning on doing a comparison between the various releases but i wanted to save that for a other topic. Sins you mentioned the DVDs you own are not French but don't include the live action segments i guess your referring to one of the Ncircle releases. I'd be interested in a seeing some screenshots but i think it would be more interesting to create a separate topic about it so i can nicely organize it. The reason why i asked about the French releases is because i'm thinking of buying them. Here is a comparison between the UK on the left and the Australian set on the right. I noticed all of the NTSC releases have these line art separations. The UK dvds didn't have this issue but the never finished the set and are PAL. The French dvds where released by the same company so if the didn't change their authoring operation i think the quality should be similar. Of course i can never be sure without having seen some screenshots. Note: i resized the image from the PAL UK dvd to do this comparison.
  5. Thanks man your awesome I'ts cool to have the full series archived from Netflix and your right who knows maybe there are other streaming sources beter. I remember a few years ago someone mentioned hulu also had the series but just like the Netflix versions i was never able to watch them myself. So i have no comparison. Also i'm running into some troubles playing The Unzappables episode it stops playing after 11:20. I tried to re-download it but run into the same issue using VLC the other one is playing fine. It does include the never before released Club Mario live action segment so that's really cool ^^ Also i see web-dl software seems the best solution otherwise you have watch a full episode while recording. I'm wondering if the screen recording software allows a higer bitrate the videos look a bit compressed but i have no way of telling maybe the Netflix source is already pretty compressed. Also your right about the series it aired together with the Zelda cartoons which where only 13 episodes long. That brings the series to total of 65. The Zelda cartoons also had live action segments from the Mario Bros. But most of them where never released. I doubt Netflix ore any other streaming service has the missing ones. Just wondering btw does anyone here have the French DVDs ? I'm not looking for the ISO ore anything just a few screenshots. So i can compare the quality.
  6. Hi uncc49, Thank you so much for grabbing a episode from Netflix for me. To be honest i've never seen the quality from the Netflix episodes a friend of mine who lives in the US told me about the Super Mario Bros. Super show beeing on Netflix. He mentioned the quality was pretty decent so i really wanted to check it out myself. Unfortunately the series wasn't even available in my country so i couldn't even watch it using my Netflix trial. I really want to make a restoration with the best source videos available. But the filters used on the Super Show by Shout Factory really look horrible in most episodes. My friend told me the Netflix episodes don't use the extra sharpening that's is why i was really interested in seeing the episodes. I have no idea how the quality looks while watching the episodes on Netflix. Most likely this is the best quality one is able to capture but could anyone confirm this for me ? If it's possible to capture the footage in higher quality somehow could anyone do this maybe ? On second thought i can understand if i'm asking to much here i mean the series is 52 episodes long. Maybe it's better if i first check my source videos and come back to this topic with a few specific episodes I want from Netflix to fill in the gaps i need for my restoration. I am really happy with the The Little Red Riding hood episode. It was one of the episodes i needed. uncc49 could you maybe capture "The Unzappables" i'd love to have the Netflix version. Sins it includes footage which has never been released to DVD. The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World where the second and third Tv shows created by Dic Entertainment. The Super Mario Bros. Super Show was the first one which was based on SMB2 / SMB it aired 52 episodes and where partly live action partly cartoon. Thanks again uncc49!
  7. Hi everyone, I actually have a second request regarding the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. My previous one is about the Kid Klassics VHS releases located here. This time i'm looking for Netflix copies. Is their anyone here who could possible rip / record the Super Mario Bros. Super Show Netflix episodes for me please ? I'm looking for the best quality available. Preferred upload host: mega.nz Resolution: 720x480 Frame rate: 29.97 FPS Frame Type: --- Aspect Ratio: 4:3 Container: --- Thanks for looking at my request!
  8. Dear Kametsu members, I was hoping someone on here could help me obtain copies from the following VHS tapes: Princess I shrunk the Marios/Koopa Claus/Two Plumbers and a Baby. These VHS tapes where only released in the USA by Kid Klassics around 1989 - 1991. I would love to have a raw VHS rips in the best quality possible, the don't have to be cleaned up just a raw copy captured with DVD recorder ore capture card would be perfect. Also the audio is really important even more than the video quality. So if possible i would prefer the audio to be captured in stereo with a high bitrate. Here is a image including the VHS tapes i'm talking about. Additional info: Preferred upload host: mega.nz Resolution: 720x480 Frame rate: 29.97 FPS Frame Type: Interlaced Aspect Ratio: 4:3 Container: VOB / MPEG / AVI Thanks for looking at my request i hope someone can help me out.
  9. I 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.
  10. Hello everybody, I'm new to kametsu, the forum looks really nice and I wanted to check it out.
