Are you able to record it to your computer and e-mail it to me? Only because down in Syd, Australia, we use the PAL tv system, so any NTSC won't work ... there are players that play both, but mine doesn't. Thats cool, I'll just search all the p2p's untiI find it.



Is it wrong to download free to air tv off of p2p's?

    I'm assuming this is in reply to another post.\



    I can record the show and save the file in a MPEG4 or AVI format and host it on my computer. You could download it if you have a fast internet connection. NTSC vs PAL doesn't really apply on computers.

    Cool. It will take a few days until the show is on again and a couple more to encode it.

    This is always a can of worms. Some people say it is totally fine because it is like giving someone a VHS tape and it was free. Some people say it is illegal if you give it to other people. And the MPAA/RIAA think anything to do with P2P is illegal no matter what. Call me a rebel if you want, but I am adhering to original copyright lays (pre-1998 ) as long as I don't sell the copy and make a profit off you. The new DMCA is legal overkill and while I (unlike many many people I know not on this forum) try to stay legal, I find it hard to support these ambitious control-freaks.



    You know, I gotta start ranting again. This felt so good.

    Don't mean to interrupt your quiet time together, but you know, next time, this might be a better PM discussion or something

    The movie is here for your enjoyment.

    Sorry about the slow connection speed (30K) but I have to host the file directly from my G5. So grab a beer & sit back or download overnight if you can. I'll leave my computer on tonight and won't shut down until network activity stops. (My computer is on most of the time anyways)



    http://24.6.133.221/~web/GameOver.mp4 (181MB) Doesn't sound right but whatever.

    OR

    http://24.6.133.221/~web/GameOveSmall.mp4 (132.1MB)



    (Shameless iPod plug) Found this in this episode of Game Over.

    The major gripe about this kind of thing is the ability to skip advertisements, which violates the letter of copyright law. Of course, being in australia you avoid US jurisdiction. Recording the show is fine: fair use clause.



    Sending the show to a guy in Australia won't get you in trouble. Civil trials are very subjective anyway, though there's really no chance that you're going to go to court over this.

    Finally the encoding is done. For some reason the large movie shrank from 300+MB down to 181MB. I'm either really good, or something strange happened. But, hey... it seems to work. 8)



    I'll try to leave my computer on as much as posable. I do have an occasional restart/shutdown after Unreal2K4 but I have MenuMeters and will try not to interrupt the uploads.

    Okay Ebby, all done. Thanks a bunch.



    I downloaded it at Uni. While doing so a friend came up and told he had gotten a hold of Ep's 1 & 2



    Now I'm off to go and watch them.
