View Full Version : Movie Play format movies on Kazaa Lite
05-08-2003, 04:43 AM
OK, I've searched for various ways of distributing the stuff I've converted to CLIE format and not been very successful so far. Instead of using mIRC (too much work for me) or FTPing (couldn't logon), I'm going to use Kazaa Lite.
So, search for MQV on Kazaa/Kazaa Lite and hopefully you'll find the stuff I'm hosting - you should recognise me by my handle. It's almost 1G now and most of the stuff I've got is VCD quality, with more being converted as we speak. I've set my country as US as I've read somewhere that Kazaa searches according to locale - so if I set to Hong Kong most of you wouldn't find anything.
Can someone try this out and let me know if I'm successful in my efforts.
05-08-2003, 04:44 PM
I looked for them, couldn't find anything. I think that Kazaa signs on to different "nodes" every time you sign on, so if you're not on my node, I won't see your files (ie, when on Kazaa, you don't seen 100% of users online.) First of all, you ahve to be actively connected for it to even be possible for us to share...
I do know how to share specific files (using the sig2dat program that comes w/ KazaaLite)...but I still think we have to be connected to the same node. If you want a primer on that, let me know.

how about bitorrent? If you get enough users it will go fast... you must leave it up after d/l though.
05-08-2003, 09:48 PM
Sorry, PC problems last night (Hong Kong time). Try again today and see if you can find anything. In the meantime I'll look into this nodes thing.

to search for specific extensions, you'd search for [*.mqv], right? (without the brackets)
05-09-2003, 11:26 AM
Yeah no brackets. My PC has been running all day, but no success - shame. I've done a bit more reseach into Kazaa and as crh3f points out, if you're not on my node you won't find me. Even set myself up as a Supernode.
I have though found something else that can help me no end (and possibly you). It's a DNS redirect service that works with dynamic IP addresses (found it while researching Winhand - another useful program). My website now works direct from my hard drive, and I'm setting up FTP as we speak. Once I clarify the security issues (not that I don't trust all of you out there :rolleyes:) I'll post details. I might even have downloads direct from my website via the DNS redirect mmm...
FYI, so far I've converted a bunch of Red Dwarf (10 episodes), The Matrix, and Lock Stock & 2 Smoking Barrels. No much I know (but it is 1G on my hard drive!) but every little helps...
05-09-2003, 01:23 PM
I've managed (I think) to get this working.
Being the paranoid person that I am, I'm not going to post the link right away. Drop me a message if you're interested and we'll how the 'testing' goes.

sent you a PM...

I've heard good things about Direct Connect (DC hub) as well as doing what I do, a personal FTP set up on my own computer. WarFTP or CaesarFTP can both do this on a windows system.
05-12-2003, 03:13 AM
Wow, setting up your own web site and FTP with a DNS redirecting service was easier than using mIRC? I don't think so..
05-12-2003, 03:32 AM
:D OK maybe not. Although, my web site was already up and running so it was a case of adding a new page. I actually wanted the DNS redirect for another reason so using it for this was a test - which worked.
I've never been much into IRC so that's probably why I didn't spend any real time on it. It would probably have been easier but I get much more out of it this way. :cool:

What kind of bandwidth do you have? IRC is nice because you can queue up sends, and not have lots of people downloading off you at slow speeds. With a web site, it's not really possible to have people wait in queues to download (without loads of scripting), and so unless you have little traffic people are going to probably find it very slow. Also, unless a person uses a download manager, if the download stops then they have to start it all over again. I don't really see the advantage. Sure it's easier to learn how to use, but if you read a page or two of a help file then mIRC is easy to use too. And once you learn to use it, you have access to lots of file servers, instead of just one web site.
just my opinions ;/

When my FTP is running I just set maxusers to 10.
05-13-2003, 12:28 PM
I have 3M broadband so it should be OK for a few people. I do however appreciate all the negative reasons you mention about my solution. In the end it was actually the best way for me to post this info. Other issues such as server maintenance etc don't help. The main point of my exercise though was just to share my hard work.
I have my IRC running now and still need to play some more to fully appreciate what it can do. Then I need to figure out how to set up my own server to share what I've done.
Then there's always FTP (like Rob) or Direct Connect. I'm considering these as well - sorry but I am still a bit of an IRC luddite!
05-13-2003, 01:10 PM
If anyone out there uses Direct Connect I think I have a hub running (again!). Use the following address when you try to connect to a Hub - it doesn't seem to list yet as a public server:
Then brose the files. I've tried this before without success, hopefully it works this time.
05-14-2003, 02:56 AM
I'm sorry, I'm a pretty negative person.
I am happy that you are sharing your clie videos though, no matter what method you use. Not enough people share.
Last time I went on direct connect (which is similar to irc in some ways), and went into the clie channel, it had nothing but warez and non-palm stuff. I'm not sure how it is now though.
05-14-2003, 03:38 AM
In the end we're trying to do the same thing, we just have different preferences on how to do it.
I think if we could organise a couple of Hubs on Direct Connect then it would be a good source of information. As I mention I should be at halesy.dyndns.org but at the moment it's not listed in the public directories so you have to input that address.
05-14-2003, 04:56 AM
If DC doesnt have anything going on right now, I don't really see the point of using it over mirc. Both are new things to the average clie owner, but mirc already has some channels with content.
05-21-2003, 12:17 AM
Halesy if you realy want to give IRC a shot i'll be more then happy to show u how to use it. I can have you working a IRC script like a old pro in no time
05-23-2003, 10:36 AM
Night, we talked before online and I appreciate your offer. Two things unfortunately, I'm offline for the next few days (don't know how long) and two, maybe I'm a luddite but I prefer ftp/web/kazaa interface.
When I'm back again though I'll let you know for the good of the movie sharing community.
05-23-2003, 11:58 AM
I tried to share my videos through irc and kazaa as well. Never got it to work. (Never figured out how to set irc to work through my router).
I have a lot of cartoons set up for NR through Kinoma. Not one shared yet.
05-23-2003, 02:57 PM
ipgpe13 we have a great tutorial on how to share and how to download files over irc stop on by and i'll be happy to show u how
03-29-2005, 06:52 PM
