Re: Seeding/Lineage Questions?

All you need to do is document what you did. Your lineage/source information would look something like this (fill in as much info as possible):

Source one: aud > ? unknown equipment and transfer > 1st gen tape > transfer method to PC > wav
Source two: aud > ? unknown equipment and transfer > 2nd gen tape > transfer method to PC > wav
Mix: wav from Source one and Source two then blended using Audacity to fill in several cuts and dropouts

And what if I don't have all that info? These tapes transfers came back from STG, and the original seeder's notes only indicate 1st gen>CD-R(x)>EAC>etc.

It seems to fall under some gray area:

Re: Seeding/Lineage Questions?

The for Source one, write:

Source one: aud > ? unknown equipment and transfer > 1st gen tape > CD-R(x) > EAC > etc.*
*originally torrented at STG

And something similar for the second source.

We just like you to list what you *do* know and put a '?' where you don't know something.

Since this is an older show, we understand that getting CD-R(M) or (1) or (known) is just not always realistic, so we want to see that (x) or (unknown) in there just so people know what they are getting. It also sometimes doesn't hurt to do a quick check on some sites to see if there is a better source out there, but, like I said, with these older shows it is just hard to know.

Re: Seeding/Lineage Questions?

Evan, they don't work when you move them out of the VIDEO_TS folder (or wherever) because then the path is wrong. You need to either create it so that it does an md5 of the contents of the VIDEO_TS folder and the md5 is placed right outside of the VIDEO_TS folder but in the seeding folder (preferred) or you need to just leave the md5 in the VIDEO_TS folder and make sure to specify in your text file that the md5 is in that folder and they need to remove it before burning the DVD.

Re: Seeding/Lineage Questions?

Sorry folks. Got a great show by The Magic Band but I can't figure out this business with the announceing URL. Where do I put that. When I try uploading the Torrent File it keeps telling me that I have to use the announce URL. Where?

Re: Seeding/Lineage Questions?

When you make the .torrent file, the application will ask you for an announce url. All the sites have different announce urls, our is posted at the top of the ABT and VBT forum (and on the upload page). If you have a space after the announce url, the torrent file will be made incorrectly.

Re: Seeding/Lineage Questions?

The best place to post about your ratio/stats is in the New Tracker Now Online thread. You should look through that thread since there is a bit of info in there. But, anyway, you need to hit Cancel/Stop in order for your stats to update. And, unfortunately, there are some clients that just don't communicate correctly with the tracker, so it just doesn't update.

Re: Seeding/Lineage Questions?

a DAT player where the show is then equilized and then split into tracks and flaced? I can't think of any reason why that wouldn't be allowed.

Cool shades.

Re: Seeding/Lineage Questions?

the eq'ing was probably done in goldwave and it would also need to be downsampled to 44.1kHz in order to burn an audio cdr ... we don't have a specific rule against 48kHz flac sets, tho. seed it up anytime.

Re: Seeding/Lineage Questions?

Go to the ABT or VBT forum and hit the New Thread button. It will take you to the upload page.

(I should ask Brian to make it into an Upload Torrent button!)
