[BGR] Streaming illegal movies is now as simple as watching Netflix - Page 5

post #41 of 54
If everyone starts streaming the torrents instead of downloading them, wouldn't that mean the number of seeders also goes down and the availability of the torrent diminishes.

You upload even before the file is finished, so you don't need the entire file to help distribute the file. I would imagine streaming a torrent just prioritizes the parts that are needed to stream that section. Already downloaded parts are then uploaded to other people... unless you leech (not upload at all).

Well, another thing is to release the movie on both at the same time then, in a cinema for people like you who likes to go watch movies there and on streaming for people like me who hate going to the cinema. At least locally going to the cinema is the worst thing you can do. thumb.gif

The big screen is kind of cool but the clarity is poor. Combined with the uncomfortable seats, the person behind me ramming their knees into my back and coughing all over me, people talking or laughing throughout the film, the exorbitant prices, and the need to watch an ever-increasing number of ads (the number increases proportionally with the price), it's just better to wait for the DVD/BD. Bah humbug!

Have you guys checked out Tixati? It's pretty hard to beat, if not the best.




WIndows, OSX, Linux.
Downloads faster and more securely than any other torrent client I've used.

If you want to completly block your ISPs and other companies/people from snooping just use some IP Filters. Here's my config file with all the filters you need to stay safe. Forced encryption settings, max connection tweaks (for a 66/4 connection with a STRONG ROUTER - reset those to default if yours is poo! tongue.gif) UI tweaks to be minimalistic and easier to read as well.

backup-2016-02-14-12-58-31.zip 2618k .zip file

Here's how mine looks snapped to the left half of the screen with my custom WIndows high contrast theme. Lots of empty space for more torrents or an expanded peer/piece list if you like to just stare at it or cheer it on while the pieces fill in tongue.gifWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Minimize to tray icon to stay out of your way too, close button ACTUALLY CLOSES IT. So nice having a program that obeys that rule.

This reminds me of the days of Kazaa and 56k... loading images and such as they download.

It's gotta be slap in the face for TPB to still be around and still making news after all these years... fighting them is only burning money and slapping your customers.

I go to a comfy theater. Though for me, the sound is never loud enough. At Home I have the 5.1 blasting audio like if I was in a war zone. I want to feel my movies, and the theater just doesn't do it for me. Once I get my basement finished, I will have my own dedicated theater anyways. With a large projection screen, so could care less about going to the movies. I used to go all the time, now I only go for the few movies I really must watch right away. Like Starwars. Honestly haven't been in the theater for almost 2 years until starwars came out. Just no movie really worth going to see.


Actually kinda wish they gave people the option to watch the movie from home when it comes out for the same price as a movie ticket. Would easily rather watch a movie in my home with better audio and video quality.

I know what you mean, I find the sound effects extremely annoying. It's like every movie has the same exact sound effects. (Oh no, there's a ghost hiding in the closet? Cue that "scary movie super low frequency bass rumble")And the reverberation/echo of the theatre itself makes it unenjoyable. The funny thing is that home theatre receivers actually have DSP modes to recreate the flaws of movie theaters.
