Why is torrenting considered better than streaming?
>>
Unless you have top tier internet connection, there's no way you can stream in the same quality you can torrent.
>>
better quality
>>
>>136301061
You'd have to restrict all traffic on your network to the connections to the stream provider to watch comfortably at 720p in sub 5 mbps connections

Depends on whether you count watching while downloading over DCC as streaming.

Not that it matters considering my connection downloads a 25m episode in under a minute.
>>
>>136301061
Because when you're on an airplane and/or using a mobile device, you can't stream without burning through serious cash or data plan minutes.

Because no one wants their anime to be as pixilated as a Japanese porno.
Its very rare for people to upload 1080p anime for streaming which you dont have to pay for.
>>
>>136301061
Because streaming sites have to pay for their bandwidth. They also have to make sure people can watch their shit, so they butcher the quality in order to provide an acceptable bitrate. I don't want to compromise, and >136303415 as well.

Also, by torrenting you don't make yourself and others rely on a single server/host. You can archive, and others will find the series in the future when no existing streaming site will have it.

recently have been resorting to streaming. It's not so bad, i've never had that big of a problem with quality or ads. Sometimes the subbing is trash tier though. I guess it helps that i dont have 3mbps internet either, but again charter is lik e30 bucks for 60mbps.

masterani.me and kissanime for example offer streams in the same quality as you can download.
So with a fast enough internet speed it doesnt really matter.

Actually they just upload them to google drive apparently, its pretty surprising they aren't getting taken down.
>>
>>136301061
Well, you have your reasons in that thread.
Then again, I won't complain if people prefer streaming, because I ususally only download stuff I will probably rewatch a lot or I if I want to make screenshots, usually about half the things I watch each season.
Otherwise I don't want to bother, because seeding is tedious for me.

I personally don't mind streamrips for airing shows. But if I have to archive a series I liked, there better be a good release of a BD rip.

I'm probably the only one thinking this, but I would prefer if some groups would stop wasting their time trying to catch up with streaming sites and just focused to provide good "final" releases for a series once the BD have come out.

Way better quality since it is not compressed to hell and beyond.

I still stream though since my download speed sucks complete and utter ass. Takes in the order of 1~3 hours to download a single episode.

If I had a better connection I wouldn't bother streaming.

The only issue with crunchyroll is that the streaming sucks speed wise, I select the 720 version and it always craps out on me while netflix never does.

If that was fixed I'd never torrent anime again.

Not the same anon, but wouldn't it be better to compare it to horriblesubs' file? Since they use that on kissanime. Just to know if they butcher it further.

I used to stream from sites like Frostanime or Crunchyroll, then i realized torrents can be automatically downloaded from RSS, so i've got the full quality episode by the time i wake up, and likely before streaming sites re-upload the horriblesubs version by a few hours

and also that the color quality is noticably better. It's ridiculous, but streaming sites have muted colors and blurry lines due to the way compression works.
I'll still stream for shorts and stuff that i don't wanna bother downloading (e.g. i watched JK Meshi), but that's it.

Non intrusive ads have never really bothered me, I have ABP installed to prevent flashing shit and popups. I have recently run in to a few sites that block shit because I use ABP so I guess it has become too popular now. I'll give ublock origin a try.

The problem isn't about non intrusive ads themselves. Why? Because I can do that alone. For example, I keep them here on 4chan.
While with ABP you get something that doesn't always do what it should, which is blocking ads, and I wouldn't be surprises if they took money to consider some ads as such.

Yeah, I bet it is faster checking the streaming site to see if a new episode is out every time for multiple shows instead of just taking 20 minutes of your time setting up an auto-downloader that just pushes everything into a folder on your desktop.

I hope most of you do this as it is painfully easy and comfortable.

It has served me well and I've had no problems with it all save for a few minor external access issues that got resolved with some tinkering.

My only gripe is that the torrent client is lackluster and I had to search for a long time until I found the right fucking regular expressions to use so that the filter works correctly.

I mean look at this shit, is a man really forced to write out something like this just to get a filter working?

Because all it takes is one network stutter between your connection and the stream to make that 1080p stream objectively worse.

It doesn't matter if your connection is god-tier if you're one of ten thousand people edging in on a connection built to handle five thousand, your experience is still going to be dogshit.

Even if you have a god-tier connection, just fucking torrent it anyway. Download the first one, then start the next four or five episodes while watching the first. If your connection is even halfway decent, by the time the first episode is done you've got a bunch more lined up and can now just grab the rest of the series.

If you're watching seasonal, just grab the first episode which strikes your fancy and then start the rest of the torrents while you watch whatever.

Torrenting means you only have to worry about the connection once, for three or four minutes.

Streaming means worrying about the connection every time you watch.

Face facts guys: streaming is bad. End of story. Stop trying to justify it as a good decision, you have the facts, you have the people backing it up, either fess up to not being capable enough to know how to download (literally two clicks once you have a torrent client) or fess up to downloading shit like the big 3 so much that your ISP sends C&D letters to your mommy and daddy.

Are you retarded? Horriblesubs which 99% of /a/ uses is the exact same shit as Crunchyroll.

>>136306307
doesn't matter. If the stream is 720p, then the quality id bottlenecked at 720p. You can upscale all you want but you'll never make the detail reappear

it's garbage, requires a dedicated server farm, and barely beats fucking superxbr

not to mention it doesn't play well with nvidia

Been working with scripting DCC transfers.
Your DCC GET request includes the position your download is at for resuming downloads.

IF anyone gave enough of a shit (and if mkv allows you to read it from halfway through) you could exploit that for seeking

Archiving and rewatching without wasting bandwidth. Also makes it easier for getting raw BDs later (ie you can rip the ASS files and don't have to wait for a group to release separate BD release)

>wasting bandwidth
wut?

An anime episode is only 300-400 MB, with 1 MB/s connection, you can download it in 5-7 minutes. If you need 1 hour to download 1 episode, either you live in Australia or you need to find a better ISP. If you actually live in Australia then stop shitposting here, go back to /pol/ nigger.

Each time you watch something via stream it actually "streams" the data live in real time off the internet. Crazy but true...
>>
>>136323708
how are you wasting anything though?
it's like saying you're wasting the sun.

You can block the advertisers instead of the /ads directory; this also beats most others sites' attempts at anti-adblock.

I don't know why people forget that you can manually edit filters.

The server doesn't send it full tilt. It will adjust speed during play and inconsistencies at ANY POINT in the connection between you your ISP the Internet at large and the remote stream server will effect the quality of service. Which is exactly why you still get buffering on YouTube which is run by a multibillion dollar corporation -- just imagine how frequently shit hits the fan on a fucking nobody company like CR

Some people have datacaps.
I'm not sure about that anon, but I have to budget 250 gigs over a month.

I stream when I'm at university since there's a good chance they're watching for torrenting and such, and you have to log on to the wifi so they'd definitely be able to know it's me if I torrent. I'm just betting that kissanime and the like is safer to use for this sort of thing while there.

Of course, once I'm at home, it's torrenting all the way

>>136323825

Some people have metered connections Sherlock and or they have other shit they want to download and don't want to clog the pipes

>>136323919
where the fuck do you live where you need datacaps? Nepal?

SVP has big problems though, especially when it comes to anime and anime-like 3DCG. Majorly messes up with hardsubs too.

They try to bullshit you with the (for anime) shader and shit but you will get fucked nonetheless.

I'm not helping you set up mpv, kid.

Your moms cunt. Even though a fat pipe is running in here shit still gets slowed down with over two dozen guys using it at once

I upload around 400GB every day, not counting downloading torrents, and other internet usage. This shit is why I'm glad I live in Atlantic Canada

What's so bad about posting on a phone?

Poorfags like me don't have a choice. I stream because I have to.
>>
>>136301061
Some argue quality but since a large majority of /a/ uses HS that argument goes out the windows since they rip straight from Funi or Crunchy.
For me, it's convenience, I don't have to wait for buffering, I can watch it whenever I want and don't have to worry about ads or any other stupid shit that comes with streaming. Webplayers are just terrible in general. Can you imagine watching Bake with all those fucking single frame walls of text? Would be horrid.
After a show is released, it's nice to archive the BD copy as they usually look fantastic.

>>136309856
>That banding
They are using some next level compression on that.

>>136324142
Avoid hardsubs then.

MPV has no issue with 60FPS on my machine.

why not torrent a title or two each time you head on down to mcdonalds? they have free wifi

>>136325112
I don't have my my own computer. I have an iPhone and I stream.
>kill yourself
Yes I know but Apple fucks over people who like to torrent. Android had tons of apps and ways that can help you snatch torrents directly to the phone but Apple is a lot more strict. Most apps I find in the App Store won't open torrent files.

I've seen laptops for sale at around 150 dollaroos. are you really that poor, or are you just underage?

mpv's smoothmotion or whatever they're calling it now isn't like the illegal piece of proprietary shit the video in his screenshot is using.
>>
>>136325621
Nah. 21. Life is rough sometimes. Work two jobs so getting one really isn't a problem but bills and bills and bills. Also I'd get something that isn't literally shit. After I sink money into a new car my next step is a personal computer. After that I can torrent like a champ and prevent anons from burning me at the stake for having the "Kissanime" logo in my screenshots. Believe me I don't like it either.
