FYI this is exactly the same as in post 8, I posted it there because somebody was unable to download it from the website. I even just checked it to make sure

Strange. I am admittedly a relative novice with uTorrent, but I was unable to get any seeds when using that torrent. I tried the one in Post #8 and it worked. It was probably my ham-fisted computer skills, but, all that matters to me is that I now have the disc (now I have to wait for my 50gb discs to arrive....)

+1 this disc freaking rocks.
post #1565 of 1675
I have tried each torrent but there are very few seeders. I see others saying the link in post 8 has better seeds but I am not experiencing it. Anyone else pulling off a DSL connection what are your average speeds?
post #1566 of 1675
I know how to use Torrents but cannot seem to open the Torrents in Post 8.

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance.

It was a pain for me as well. After clicking the free download wait the 1 minute. Then type in the verification code. then generate link and copy and paste the link into your web browser. After downloading remove the .txt so the file ends with .torrent.

I just had to right click the link and choose "open with"...Utorrent and that was it.

No deleting the .txt bit or anything.

I did it as a Save As to my Desktop deleting the .txt and it worked.

Will this work in PAL Region 2 BD players?
post #1571 of 1675
Yes it does, I play it on a UK blu ray player through a German bought Denon. It is either region free or is coded to a region by your bd burner.
post #1572 of 1675
I have had the torrent from #8 running for 48 hours, in that time it has not connected to any peers.
Anyone else downloading this, and what speeds are you getting?
post #1573 of 1675
Another option is to use a media streamer / HTPC to play these .m2ts files. If you have an HTPC, works great.

Agreed. I used to burn these demo discs but always hated having to dig the disc out and load it when I wanted to demo material. I purchased a Micca ep600 Media player and now I can demo stuff from any of the wonderful demo discs found on AVS at the push of a button.

Holy cow! . ! . ! Just saw the demo of Dennis Quade flying that airplane. Is this flight of the Phoenix? I don't think I have ever heard my sub do what it did during the demo scene. I feel nauseous after 30 min of demo'ing lol. Love it!

Burners do not burn region codes, either DVD or BD. Region coding is part of the data that is burned onto the media.

DVDs MUST have region bits set. There is no such thing as region free DVDs. To make a DVD so-called region free, all of the appropriate regions are set.

BDs, on the other hand, require a program to be included in order to check for the region. So, in this case, a BD can truly be region free. The demo disc is region free.

Yup, that is a great scene and is FotPH. The only good scene in the whole movie too, so it is great to have it on a demo disc.

Thanks for the info Mr.Video

Fresh, direct link f/the V2.0 torrent : http://www.mediafire.com/?ryv68qxb68s8nt4
post #1579 of 1675
I'm currently 60% done downloading the 46GB torrent, this is the first time I've downloaded a torrent and have absolutely no experience at all with the whole process that needs to be completed afterwards to get the files ready. I noticed that post #1 has been deleted, and I assume that that's where the detailed instructions on what to do once the torrent is completed. Would anyone have, or know where I could get those detailed instructions??

As of now, when u torrent says that the file has been 100% downloaded,, I would have absolutely no clue as to what to do from that point on. eek.gifconfused.gif

Really really looking forward to seeing this disc, heard great great things about it ! biggrin.gifcool.gif

Hopefully someone here can chime in and provide some direction, thx ! smile.gif

depends on what you plan to do with the disc when it downloads. Are you planning to burn it do an optical disc? Play it off of an HDD?

You can follow LEO's instructions from his threads if you'd like. Basically, the only difference is that you will not need to "Unrar" (Unpack) the disc when the download is complete. You will already have the raw BDMV folders that can just be burned using imgburn or transferred to a USB/HDD drive for direct playback if you have a player that does that.

Thanks for the response Steve I'm really looking forward to seeing your disc.. I've heard nothing but amazing comments on it! Thanks for taking the time to put this together for everyone biggrin.gif

Here's what I want to do, and like I said I've never done a torrent before or neither this post-download process that must be done so please take it easy on me wink.gif

My main goal is to put file(s) (not sure if the final product would be one or multiple files, I guess I'll find out) on my 4TB WD USB hard drive, on which I have all my ripped BDs in M2TS files. I always only use 'passthrough' rip to preserve all of the original video/audio quality from the physical blu-ray disc. I use DVDFab 9 to rip them, works great for me. The playback quality on these is exactly the same as watching the actual disc. This hard drive is hooked up to my Oppo 103 BDP for playback, works flawlessly every time! So I would like to have your disc on my USB hard drive, while preserving all of the physical disc video/audio quality.

Many thx Steve ! smile.gif
post #1582 of 1675
I've updated (added) the latest link to post #8, so if anyone looks at this thread from the beginning at least its somewhere in the first page.

I would recommend playing this disc, and other demo discs for that matter, using the disc menu. You are missing some of the intended experience if you just play the clips. The clips are great but If you player permits it, even if you have it digitally play it using the disc menus, it'll be a much better experience.

Doesn't the Oppo playback the full menu? With normal movies ripping them so that you only extract the main movie saves on space. For a demo disc you would want to "Full Movie" so that all menus and everything are preserved. I know some OPPOs do full menu support when played back so thats what you'd want to do. You want to avoid browsing for individual clip files but rather launch clips from the menus that I and LEO created.

Yes I'm pretty sure it does.. just got the 103 a week ago.. still learning.

So yes for sure, that's the way I would want to do it then, I definitely want the best experience possible biggrin.gif

So how would I go about getting it on my USB hard drive in that preferable format ?

Thx for your help ! Torrent is at 77% right now.. but its' going slow at this point.. no worries almost there biggrin.gif
post #1585 of 1675
Less than 1% to go for my ScubaSteve torrent, 300MB to be exact, it's coming biggrin.gif

Now to figure that post download process.. eek.gif

The instructions for LEO's 1st or 2nd disc..

The torrent is done, I'm hoping to do this 'process' tonight and watch it afterwards biggrin.gifcool.gif fingers crossed that it works..

Either one, they are exactly the same... but this is only if you are burning it to physical media.

Steve's disc does not require to un-RAR any files.

For little that I know about the Oppos, You place the BDMV folder inside a folder. You ought to ask at the Oppo thread. just to make sure.
Steve's disc is a fine piece of art!!! and a great demo disc.

Thx, sounds fairly easy then to transfer to USB drive, shouldn't take more than 5 min smile.gif

I'll confirm on the 103 thread just to confirm.

I'm getting yours (x2 biggrin.gif) next !

Thx for your assistance with this, much appreciated smile.gif

First off, the clips look absolutely amazing, excellent quality, great work biggrin.gifcool.gif

So I created a folder and named it 'HT Blu-ray Demo Disc v2.0', I then placed the BDVM and Certificate (just to be safe you know wink.gif ) folders into that new folder that I created.

I transferred the 'HT Blu-ray Demo Disc v2.0 folder (I checked the size, 46GB) on my USB hard drive, and hooked it up to the Oppo 103 for playback... I had to navigate to the 'Stream' folder within the BDMV folder, to find 76 M2TS files. So I could start the first one and they would play automatically one after the other. Only 3 of them did not play, the Oppo said "file not recognized".

So watching all the clips is great, but I guess my issue is what I highlighted above from your posts, I don't seem to be able to find a menu or where I would launch such a menu.. So the raw clips work flawlessly, but I know I'm missing out without the menus. Either I'm missing something, or I'll have to convert them to another 'format'. I'll have to ask in the Oppo 103 thread.. Either way, I'm happy that at least I know all the files (clips) work fine and it's just a matter of finding a way to launch them from the menu instead of directly from within the folder of the USB drive and playing the raw file.

Now to figure this out and start the torrent for the next one, Reference 2 BD from Superleo ! biggrin.gifcool.gif

Thx !!

It sounds like you've done everything right. Now you need to go and figure out what your Oppo wants in terms of playing back full blurays (blurays with menu). I don't own an Oppo so I can't help you.
