Harmy I’m just curious, what video do you send people who ask “What’s wrong with the DVDs/BluRays?”
I know there are plenty of videos out there, but I’m looking for the perfect video that deconstructs the abomination that is the SW special editions and figured you’d be a great person to ask first. Thanks

I’ve used this one to give people the gist of it… doesn’t go into all the details of every special edition added scene, but gives a good idea of how George has withheld the theatrical version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXifjbxZDAM

EDIT: Hellogreedo’s channel on youtube has several videos that go more in-depth into some of the changes. Here’s a playlist of a bunch of them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xezn-0xottw&list=PLaqGKHBFQiztN7uoijEG9ZUw3PYrQ7Y0i

I know ripping from the VIDEO_TS folder isn’t optimal, but when I attempt to re-encode the larger versions, the resulting file is usually corrupted, or the process itself bombs my Mac. The tablet rips are used primarily on my iPhone 6, while the VIDEO_TS will go straight to a DVD-5 for viewing on an old Panasonic 13" CRT television.

check your PM

I used Handbrake on my Mac and re-encoded the MKV to MP4. From there I used a some freeware - Subler (awesome program) to import metadata (gives you a movie description and attaches it to the file). After you add this you choose your artwork (provides many options) and it attaches it to the file. Hit save. Hit optimize. Hit Send To iTunes. Then it will be syncable with your iPhone thru iTunes and will place it in your Videos app along with all your other movies/purchases.

I have SW 2.5, ESB 2.0 and ROTJ 2.5 all on my iPhone 6 using the steps above and they look absolutely incredible. I may throw together a YouTube tutorial if it would be helpful to ppl.

EDIT: also off topic. My apologies. If you want more info PM me

…When I attempt to open the file ‘frd.jar’ a pop up says “frd.jar is damaged and cannot be opened” bearing in mind I’m using a Mac.

I’m not a Mac expert. At all.
Maybe your java isn’t installed properly? And even if it is, maybe your system doesn’t associate ‘jar’ files to open with java correctly?
Can you open a shell prompt, go to the folder with the jar, and type something like
java -jar frd.jar

?

I use a Mac. A certain Downloader I discovered through YouTube tutorials successfully grabbed and downloaded all rars from teh. Hope that points you in the right direction

Having watched the film again today, I still am struck by how the biggest event that felt out of place was the reveal of Luke. The film would have been much better if they had cut to credits as Rey makes the jump to lightspeed.

Disagree. There was definitely an element of cliffhanger ending, but at the same time something about it was just so satisfying. I thought the end was very well balanced in that regard

So rad to have a completed grindhouse trilogy. Definitely watching these on the big screen at work!

Pardon my ignorance but is there a Star Wars '77 35MM Grindhouse? I thought there was only TN1’s ESB Grindhouse 35MM and this new ROTJ one.

I was referring to this post. I’m a bit of a noob to this world so I’m not sure if it would technically qualify as “grindhouse” given all the cleanup… http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/team-negative1-star-wars-1977-35mm-theatrical-version-release-details-and-updates/id/14590

Burning AVCHD via Mac
Time

Thats awesome. I’m converting with tsmuxer as we speak. Don’t have my BR writer as of yet but will try that upon arrival.

Just want to clarify, is this what version of Toast you’re referring to? http://www.roxio.com/enu/products/toast/plugin/overview.html

Also, you just burnt the AVCHD direct? Have you had any experience with making menus and things like that? I only ask, because the download of TN1’s Silverscreen SW comes with a whole lot of goodies and I think it would be rad to make a BR with menu options for extras, etc…

Public torrent exists, look up Return of the Jedi Harmy on kat.cr its literally one of the first results.

I would post a link but since people of this site deem links to be the root of evil, birthplace of Satan and Justin Bieber’s tour finale, I won’t.

This site has been around since the early 2000s. You’ve been on it a couple months. You’d think that a new member would approach the community with respect and learn what is and isn’t appropriate here before making a fool of them-self. I’ve been around for a shorter time than you and even I figured that out. Try to keep up, Hayden

It’s against the rule for obvious reasons, and you’re a new member who only posts disrespectful crap.

Video will be slightly higher (slightly higher bitrate), but the biggest difference is audio - the MKV includes higher quality main soundtrack (lossless, I believe - at least in the cases of SW and ESB) and several more tracks for different languages.

So not REALLY worth the investment in a Blu-Ray burner then? Sound isn’t amassive issue to me as I only play through a sound bar or TV Speakers anyway.

I work in a theatre and got some friends together to watch SW 2.5 AVCHD on the BIG screen. I couldn’t A-B it with the MKV, but I seriously had ZERO complaints. Not sure if it’s worth the investment. Unless you want the extra gigs to be able to have a BR with a fancy menu and extras, etc…

This sounds amazeballs to me. I really wish I could have that experience. Is it as simple as just hooking up a player to the projector there?

It’s a live performance theatre. A bit more set up than that, but worth it in the end… https://goo.gl/photos/mwDwXwHU2az8sFbq7
Shitty pic, but you get the idea
