      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

A single video can't have two different PAR's & resolutions.

Sure it can.  A transport stream is a multiplex that can contain multiple video and audio streams.  If you live in the USA and get broadcast TV, those sub-channels like 7-1, 7-2, 7-3, where 7-1 is the main network and 7-2, 7-3, and so on are non-HD channels like GetTV or ThisTV, etc., are all being broadcast on a single transport stream.  That can be captured to a file, and it's got different different video streams at different resolutions.  A better player will let you select which stream to play.  A lesser player will just play whatever is first in the PAT.

Even a single video stream can be present in multiple resolutions at the same time.  See the Spatial scalability extension in section 7.7 of ISO13818-2 (MPEG2 video).  Of course that's not in the main profile and no one uses it.

As for a single program in a transport stream changing resolution, there's no rule that says it can't.  It's a streaming format so there is no single header that describes the resolution in one place.  When a digital TV changes channels, it starts decoding the transport stream at whatever frame happened to be getting broadcast at the time it went to that channel.  It's jumping into the middle of the stream without any access to what was broadcast before.  So how could the resolution of an earlier part of the video stream that the TV never sees make any difference?

Thread drift to deride the AC organisation mess...

The AC app doesn't have enough reviews (for all versions) to yet give a rating...

The internet indicates an app requires 6 (six) ratings to generate this info. Is it possible that this has been such a success that fewer than six people on the planet have bothered to download and give it a rating despite being at this stage of the regatta?

I rated it and the entire coverage with 1 star. Completely awful. There were many ratings. Maybe they have a new version out.

On Android, the app just started charging users for using the live stream.. $5 for the QQ2 and the Challenger Series, no word on how much you're supposed to cough up for the Cup itself..

What does it mean if qtorrent shows 'Stalled' in the Status column?

Don't know how to 'unstall it', so I'm downloading the files from the google drive.

If anyone can help me use qtorrent, I would appreciate it.

I haven't used that app but as a guess I'd right click on it and then 'resume' or any similar command.

A 'stall' means it has either run out of Seeds/Peers or it can't find any, very normal for new or starting a torrent for it to appear stalled, since we're 53/21 at the moment there are plenty.

LESSON FROM THE PAST: DO NOT INSTALL THEIR APPLICATION!!!!!

JUST WATCH ONLINE, CLOSE ALL THE POPPUPS AND TRUST YOUR ANTI VIRUSSOFTWARE

If you want to watch live pay the small amount and get FABIPTV. That is the source I am using for the recordings

Fantastic Rudder! 

Anyone have issues playing USA v Artemis race? 

Myself & a friend on a different device were unable to play it, but NZ race played fine.. 

Maybe the Google Drive .ts download file gets overloaded (if thats possible).

That worked for me!  Thanks for the fix.  I was thinking the lack of a tracker was the issue, but didn't know how to fix it.  Just have to add those to each torrent and then they download quite well.

 

Will Keep seeding for at least the next few months.  Thanks Rudder!

So for the Semifinals June 6-8, the racing is not broadcast on NBC SN. Only the app is available.

What is the best way to record and get the coverage like we've been seeing? 

Are we supposed to watch this on our phones?

June 6 Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Playoff Semifinals: NBC Sports App 1 p.m.

June 7 Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Playoff Semifinals: NBC Sports App 1 p.m.

It's correct in the torrent if you can just download that. You should be able to select individual races from within the torrent too if you just need the one.

A 50min summary vid of yesterday…

The Parker Hannifin commercial kicks in at just after 12mins - is a swift overview of what’s included to control the USA flying boats – then  a blonde does foils with Groupama after that segment, then skip to the comedy at the post racing skipper debrief,  supplied by Deano and Pete…

All eyes on Oracle v ETNZ later today…  for a good idea of which team needs to develop more, course conditions being more wind equal/stable.

If you can link to that play-off RudderNZ  your leaching acolytes will be best pleased.

^ the web browser works great, but if you're serious about it long-term pick up an Android box or even a MAG 254 (they're dirt cheap) which will get you closer to a native set-top cable experience.  We cut the cable a couple of years back and with Netflix + Amazon Prime + Exodus + IPTV we haven't looked back.

I was able to watch the NBC Sports Network broadcast, so stepped away for a few days.

garpgarp posted some trackers (on Friday)

I added them and did a 'force reannounce to all trackers'  - that move got it started again.

A big Thank You to Rudder, and everyone else on this thread. 

I was able to watch the NBC Sports Network broadcast, so stepped away for a few days.

But I feel confident that I won't miss anything if I can't continue watching live.

I'm a newbie when it comes to bittorrent, and am very grateful for all the help I've gotten here to get my feet wet.

I think someone used my torrent and then put them on youtube so they probably don't have race day 1 either. They were called Crazy Sailor. It looks like their account has been taken down.

Got it.

Another way (I haven't watched them, hence rely on the titles):
All races here, but with German (Austrian) common tree:
http://www.servustv.com/de/Videos/America-s-Cup
Maybe you need a German IP address
