This is just a little mock-up I thought of.
It’s clearly inspired by the FBI warning screen.
Before you ask about the doughnut I will say this
When I was a kid, i believe about 3. I thought the
round FBI logo looked like a doughnut. So I just put it in.
https://sdthumbs.ui-static.net/thumb/_/02.41100874.51.jpg?h=A9rIjuou6P3vuKZQqWxalg&e=1518130800&cmd=scale&height=1033&width=2143

We’re the DAPG(the Doughnut Anti Piracy Group). 😛

Okay here’s the updated version
https://sdthumbs.ui-static.net/thumb/_/02.41105721.51.jpg?h=dJnp4_BRL9hN3Q2RUMofnA&e=1518130800&cmd=scale&height=1033&width=2143
My thought was the people that made fan projects could
tack a logo like this on the front and back of their projects.
This way if somebody downloaded a fan project with the intention of selling it.
They could not simply just burn discs and sell them without the disk containing this logo.
They would have to bring the files into a video editor cut out the logo from both sides.
and then convert back to a burnable image. Not something that a really dedicated pirate
could not do but a mild deterrent for uninformed people. Please note though this is just
a mock-up I do not own the rights to the donut image. I just quick searched donuts on
Google images and picked one.

This is just a question for anyone who might know.
could someone tell me a good movie discussion website?
I used to use the IMDb but they got rid of their discussion bored.
my interest is being able to ask people about different Blu-ray and DVD releases.
sometimes I want to ask if a new version of a movie solve some problems that an earlier one had.
Things like is the DVD anamorphic? Does it have the special/extended edition,the theatrical Edition or both?
Did they finally fix that other little problem it’s annoying blah blah blah …

Star Wars vs. A New Hope
Time

I tend to call it A New Hope. Or Ep4 or ANH I never saw it in 77. sorry was not born yet.
I know, lame excuse but it was my parents fault. 😉
I tried just calling it Star Wars at one time but I had some one say. “witch one?”
I say the first one. And they say do you mean Ep1 or E4?
So I save time on witch one. That way if I have to explain why E4 is the first and EPs 1 2 3 were made after Eps 4 5 6 I won’t be so out of breath.

The best solution would be to pay a fee for the original film release to stream off a website which pays royalties to the actual companies that are entitled to payment for the intellectual property but which also unlocks fan versions or preservations and alternatives of said title purchased that can be viewed as optional in addition to the title you bought the right to watch and stream.

This would create communities around films. And users could share artwork and opinions / reviews so on and so fourth about the film.

difficult but that I think would be ideal.

No matter weather you own a physical copy you would if you like have to subscribe to the film via this streaming site to view edits scans or whatever of a film made by other fans.

There are a number of reasons this is all very positive with no downsides that I can think of because film companies get paid… People learn software tools for free, People can get job offers to work on restoring films or companies can look and scout for talent based on output. I think it’s a good niche circle and would be all round positive. And also build strong fan bases and communities around films that have large, small and cult followings. And also attract people even if they were not wanting to do any work on any titles but simply they follow both the original work and what fans also do with it.

Creation space surrounding films of all kinds with options and extras surrounding an IP and fun most of all.

It will also be a great source of Information for reboots, sequels,remakes and hopefully more original IP’s.

this would likely screw people like me that have bad internet!

Yet more reason that my page 1 suggestion should be implemented:

NeverarGreat said:

While we need to do a better job at directing new members towards important information (see here for my suggestion), there will still be the problem of people unwilling/unable to burn the blu-rays and create custom sets. For those people, buying these things may be the only way they get their hands on them. And that’s a big problem.

Any solution not involving money would be quite a hassle, and the best thing I can think of is a system wherein the party requesting the blu-ray would be required to purchase their own blank blu-ray discs and send them in a package containing their copy of the relevant 2011 Blu-ray discs (as proof of purchase) and enough postage for sending it all back.

if the issue is downloading and not burning, could party requesting buy a portable hard drive or flash drives?
and send that with there 2011 Blu-rays? and only send the 2011 discs in sleeves or skinny Jewel cases. to cut down shipping cost?

What’s AOL?

It was a joke. Downloading Despecialized shouldn’t take a long time with any reasonable internet connection.
reasonable internet connection.

that’s the problem.
many people don’t have reasonable internet connections.
they have to settle for crap.
I have the 7.9GB (DVD9)
Each one of them was a 10 hour download.
I have DSL from CenturyLink. we get just under 4MBPS on a good day.
We tried to get cable years ago
but they told us the house was too far from the road.
Unless we move we are screwed.

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 MKV IS OUT NOW
Time

This is slightly off topic but hopefully not too much.
If stores like Blockbuster Video were still a thing.
would anybody be tempted to rent out their copy of the
original trilogy Blu-rays. and replace the discs with a set of Harmy’s?
So that more people could see the originals?

https://image.ibb.co/jikWnb/ffwe.png

unlike ROTJ. where i got a ISO File (.iso)
i got a BDMV folder with more folders inside.
i tryed this https://www.dvd-guides.com/guides/blu-ray-copy/260-burn-blu-ray-avchd-using-imgburn
but the calculator gets stuck at 99%?

The calculator just tells you what percentage of the disc the data would use… You don’t really want to hit a full 100%.

thank you

hopefully I won’t need to ask anything when I do ESB.

So how’d it go?

I got all 3 now thanks again for the help.

Here’s a thought why do my posts keep disappearing?

How many posts have disappeared? and what were they?

If you are referring to a single post talking about Empire Strikes Back (was it something about audio?) in poita’s Star Wars Special Edition 35mm Preservation thread - then yes, I deleted it.

Please try to post in a relevant thread - which that certainly wasn’t.

Thank you.

Okay that explains one
and yes that was the wrong spot to put that sorry.
I sometimes Post in the wrong thread. Sometimes it’s purely mistake I have
two threads open and I post in the wrong one.
other times i’m not sure where I should post something and don’t want to start a new topic
so I try to find somewhere that is marginally relevant. But I’m usually wrong.
Another missing post was one I thought I put here about if there were 4K laser discs?

Muxing up Movie quotes

This is definitely random and mostly pointless but…
What if you took the technology of Ultra HD blu rays.
and made a disk and player that was the size of a LaserDisc.
I don’t have any LaserDiscs handy right now but I have some vinyl records and
based on the size I think you could get the equivalency of 5
Ultra HD blu rays on one side. I believe that’s half a terabyte.

That’s odd. Maybe a pdf copy of that website will help.

I’ll post a link for you with “WeTransfer”. The link will only be good for 7 days, but that way I don’t need to worry about maintaining it.

How to write an image file to a disc using ImgBurn

thank you.
I just got some more disks So i can just try it now.
I’ll tell you what happens when I’m done.

Well, it isn’t amazingly hard, if you do it right the first time it should only take one disc… Ask specifically if you have any doubts, we can help.

that’s odd I updated my post. But it’s not here.
The disc seemed to burn successfully.
but I haven’t had time to watch it yet.
anyway I just wanted to ask about labeling the disc.
they seem to be printable discs that’s all the store had.
can I print on the disc without a special printer?
OR should I just write on it with a stupid Sharpie?

Just out of curiosity if somebody resold the official Blu-rays.
and as a free bonus included a fan project like Despecialized, would that still be a problem? please note I’m not planning on doing this. I am just interested in loopholes.

You don’t want to burn the whole folder. You want to burn the image file to a disc, not a folder with an image file in it.

A disc image is akin to a .zip file. You want ImgBurn to effectively extract the contents of the image onto the disc so that the files on the disc itself look identical to the way the files inside the image look.
