  1. Hey, how about I involve you in the process for once? I'm working on George Shrinks right now, and for some episodes I have multiple different DVD releases of them. What's interesting is that it's very different on each! Take for example, Sunken Treasures. I have it on an older DVD of the same name, and a newer compilation DVD of various Nelvana shows called Ready For Playtime. The older DVD just looks like it was taken directly from the original TV master, but the newer DVD is much better looking, very clear and digital, like they made a new one for it. It's also higher bitrate, interestingly. The picture quality is better in about every way than the older DVD, but the older period-accurate Nelvana logo was replaced with the newer modern one, and also most of the episodes I have will be from BBC Kids, which uses the older version, so the older DVD would be more consistent. And I don't know, maybe people would like the worse-looking picture better? Have a look at this comparison I uploaded http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/115990 and let me know what you think I should do.

      For what reason would people prefer a worse-looking picture? Because I can't wrap my head around that. The only reason I can think of would be the logo, which you can easily replace with the old version if needed.


      So yeah, definitely go with newer DVD.

      It's funny actually, I was originally going to use the older DVD for consistency with the tvrip of the rest of the episodes, but as I looked at the newer one more I liked it for the cleaner picture more and more. As for preference otherwise... don't know, that's why I asked! People have asked me for some strange things before, including making good on the name and recording everything onto VHS before uploading...


      On the subject of editing in the older logo, I could maybe try that, though it would clash due to being lower quality, but if you want me to put it in maybe I will.

      I REMEMBER THIS SHOW. What's funny is that the show is from the same studios who made Braceface, just a different channel (ABC Family for the USA and Teletoon in Canada for the first, PBS for the USA, and TVOntario/YTV/Treehouse in Canada for the other).

  2. After all these years, I've just realized that on a T-160 in EP mode, I could record 14 episodes of a half-hour show. Wish I could go back to 2005* and tell myself that.


    *I believe 2005 is around the time my family started buying T-160s, instead of T-120.

  3. Can you rip Brico Club from Unis TV? I know that stupid user named EC-707 wants to find this show, which he's annoying! You can post it if you want.

      If you're talking about https://unis.ca/brico-club, then I don't think videos are available

    2. DJStarfish


      I'm actually talking about the HDTV rips, which are in better quality.

    3. dangerousvhs


      I've been ripping it on and off. Should try and be more on I guess.

  4. Do you have Yvon Of The Yukon in French by any chance ? I have brief memories of seeing a French dub of this show when i was a little child. 

    1. dangerousvhs


      Sorry, I can't even verify its existence.

  5. Can you try to get the French dub of Martha Speaks from Unis TV ? 



    1. dangerousvhs


      I could but looking at their schedule page it looks like they'll stop airing it soon?

    2. GordonQuid


      Awwwwww crap. 

  6. Because it's what everyone seems to be using and for reasons of my well-being I've decided to create a Discord account on which I can be contacted. (No guarantee of timeliness.) You can find it listed on my profile as Skype.


    Please do not abuse this if you value what I do.

    1. DJStarfish


      I added you on Discord. My Discord is ryanvo2000#1899.

  7. Well this is a thing now. https://i.imgur.com/0fqaXGb.png


    Anyone want to find me a host that isn't terrible? I can't pay.

      Probably not. They expect you to either know your password or save the decryption key.

    3. dangerousvhs


      Uhh, I do have my password saved. But I mean, I bet what you upload gets deleted from the server. I mean, being nice? To some PEASANT? Yeah, and I have a bridge for sale.

    4. megajew


      Oh yeah definitely. It all gets wiped.

    Back in 2016 i managed to get all episodes of the French dub in mixed quality (most are from Gong, some from DVDRips). Because Gong aired the theme song in English i preferred putting the French one from a DVDRip instead. If you want them, tell me.

    Where to put live action threads

    Yeah, you get immediate access to the "VIP" section after having 150 posts on here. I'm probably not a very important person myself (despite what I've done) but I've apparently made 150 posts without pissing anyone off, so I guess that's something. It's funny, considering what most of my posts are... Well, anyway, barring further notice, I guess I'll post in the VIP section in the coming months, I think I'll have some good material by then. And hey, while I'm here, maybe I ought to point out that threads in the Distro Rules & User Indexes section are viewable publicly, so even if someone isn't on here and so can't view which threads are in the content sections, they can still quite easily determine what I've uploaded by looking at the... convenient list... I created. Hell, it's on the first page of results for my user name.

    Where to put live action threads

    Well, that's the thing. I did kind of test the waters (in the opposite direction) a while ago, having posted Radio Free Roscoe. EDIT: As well as Dark Oracle, almost forgot about that one... and I still need to get around to ripping the DVD! And it looks like all the links are still up, nothing bad has happened to me. (Granted, they're DHX series, and they barely care about people sharing their shows at all.) (I've also uploaded Lazytown, but I consider it a cartoon in the first place. A bit like like Roger Rabbit, with a few actors, but in a world of animation, just it's CGI and puppets instead of hand-drawn animation.)

    Where to put live action threads

    Yeah, ok. I don't know if I'll be posting immediately but I have a better idea of how to prioritize my work there, now that I can see what everyone else is posting. I consent to posting my live action rips outside VIP (unless necessary).
  12. Well, I now have access to the VIP section and can see what is (and isn't) in there, but this has me wondering... previously, I've uploaded a few live action series in the cartoon section, just out of not having access. (Well, at least that was put up with.) But I'm wondering, do I have to put threads of live action shows there now, or is it only if I don't want my links getting into bad hands? I'm not that worried about my links being stolen because I'll destroy anyone who dares because I haven't had problems with it yet. (Seriously though, don't cross me... ) I'd rather as many people be able to download my files as possible, unless it causes problems for me.
  13. Hey, starting Saturday, i'm going to get the French episodes of an animated series, Wombat City. 


    They are currently rerunning on the French channel Gong Max, and i throught you will be interested in this. I'm recording Saturday's episode (can't record today or Friday) via a M3U8 link and VLC, and if you like, i will send you the link to the M3U8 so you can record the episodes. 


    Ah, and this is a M3U8 link that i found on the official Gong app on Google Play.

    1. dangerousvhs


      I don't think I'd be able to record from a live broadcast like that, but thanks for the offer. I've tried something similar before, but time zone differences are a bit funky. I'm satisfied with ripping from mostly Canadian channels, the occasional US channel that we can get up here, and DVDs.

    2. GordonQuid


      Okay. I will cap while I can. 

  14. Just wondering, do you happen to have the Decades channel here in Canada ? 

    1. dangerousvhs


      It's this? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decades_(TV_network)


      American subchannels are only available if you can receive them OTA. (They're banned on cable!)


      It looks like they don't have an affiliate in any border city. They have an affiliate in Detroit, but I don't live in Windsor, sorry.


      Why anyway?

    2. GordonQuid


      It was for asking you to record Too Legit: The MC Hammer Story, which airs Friday but since.... Oh well anyways i have a rip from VH1 Classic. 

    3. dangerousvhs


      Sorry about that. One day though, I might save up for an antenna, and maybe I'd be able to pick up some US stations and watch/rip from subchannels. Or maybe not, I'm not so close to much that's useful. But I think I'd at least be able to get some Canadian stations, and it'd be much better quality than cable.


      That won't be for a while though.

    Chroma Deinterlace Virtualdub error

    I use Virtualdub's capture mode to save with the Huffyuv codec. BIIIIIIIIG files (around 60GB for a half hour) but I don't have to worry about anything stupid happening to the interlacing as it's a lossless codec. (Well, unless it was stupid to begin with.)
