Not sure what private trackers are all about?
The mission of /ptg/ is to promote the highest possible standards of tracker service by providing members with opportunities for professional development, by recognizing technical competence through examinations and by advancing the interests of its members.

Remember the following:
>staff occasionally read these generals and have posted here before.
>staff may pretend to be normal users asking for invites and when you invite them, they ban you for inviting strangers
>people may report emails and other personal info posted here to staff to get you banned.
>most of the invite offers here are people trolling you with false hope - begging for invites is a waste of time and you should just interview
No way. Nobody on AB will give him an invite to WCD without having solid stats and being on another reputable tracker.
I got denied a waffles invite and I'm Elite on AB.
Good to go, then.
I didn't 'fuck up', it was up to the user and he told me I needed to have been on AB longer or have ratio on other similar 'top' trackers.
Oh, ok. I'm with you 100% on that for anons that are into anime and/or don't want to bother studying so much for it.
I joined AB first and then a few weeks later got on what via interview and AB w/TehC are my favorites.
It really depends, anon. Depending on the interviewer you could pass or fail.
I failed the first time. The first interviewer didn't even bother explaining why I was wrong. The second interviewer specifically, asked me another question to make sure that I understood what the question was asking in case I knew the knowledge but may have misread(which I did in school all the time btw).
Just do your best and if you have a question or are unsure, ask them and maybe give them more information so maybe they recognize you have the knowledge but maybe was stupid mistake.
If you get two things wrong, they may fail you. No matter if that is 2/32 or 2/25.

figured one of you would be able to tell me, is christian marclay's "the clock" on any private film tracker?
they seem the only place I'd potentially be able to find it, but I'm not on one, and would rather not apply to one without knowing
>the tracker is experiencing technical difficulties
>A FUCKING GAIN
Fucking seriously? It's literally only been up and working for about 2 days...Jesus fucking Christ. And people say PTP isn't curry as fuck. FUCKING CHRIST NIGGER.
No it fucking doesn't. There's times when I go to download 1 or 2 movies and it just sits there not being able to connect or seed. It's just annoying as fuck that every fucking other hour the tracker is down. Holy trinity my dick.
Man, I was so excited for that movie when it was first announced. A horror movie set in Aokigahara Forest, why the fuck do you turn that into some generic supernatural shit?
Imagine if they had just went the psychological route and have some deranged suicidal person in the forest.
What in the fucking hell am I supposed to do about this?
Then it'd be like any other shit campy horror movie from the 80s or 90s faggot. Either way horror movies are shit nowadays. Any time we get a little glimmer of hope they shit down it's throat and start spamming movies yearly like it's Call of Duty or some shit. Just look at Insidous. Insidous was fucking GOAT...VHS....fucking GOAT....SAW...fucking GOAT. But of course we're never allowed to have nice things, so they have to franchise it and drag every little good thing we get through the mud and try to milk it for every penny they can get. Fucking faggot ass jews...and they they wonder why everyone wants to pirate shit? Suck my dick Hollywood.
Why...why can't we ever have anything decent without someone fucking it up?

>shit taste plebs on /ptg/
I'm not even surprised. I'll admit the last 2 films were absolutely shit but the first movie was GOAT. So GOAT the Hollyjews had to put out a shitty carbon copy with that Sinister film, which was absolutely shit.
And let's pretend for a second you're not a shit eating pleb and say that Insidous wasn't amazing...
Compared to horror movie in the past 5 years, Insidous should have won multiple Academy Awards and Oscars nigger.
>transfering files to seedbox
>transfer speed is around 100kbs when I actually have 1mbps
Whats the trick to this shit?
I'm using filezilla.
>I'm using filezilla.
Yeah there's your problem. Your peering/latency is fucking it up, you need to multi segment which filezilla doesn't support. lftp is the best option. I believe SmartFTP is a viable option but I'm not sure, it's not as good as lftp though.
CuteFTP only supports up to 7 segments whereas SmartFTP will do 10.
Based on the information Anon has given you:
>transfer speed is around 100kbs when I actually have 1mbps (he obviously means 1MB/s)
SmartFTP: 10*100=1000kb/s (what he's aiming for)
So without even adjusting for TCP overhead or window size issues with Windows, SmartFTP is the obvious choice in this case.
It's also inferior software for many obvious reasons, but you should just do the comparison yourself.
Use your noodle, Anon.
Also this, but sadly lftp isn't great under Cygwin, there's quite a few bad bugs, especially with SFTP.
>Also this, but sadly lftp isn't great under Cygwin, there's quite a few bad bugs, especially with SFTP.
I've been using it for months. The only 'issue' is when it locks up when starting big transfers cos of disk writes. But it's benign.
Op here, just downloaded smartftp.
What about putty?

>qBittorrent modern client does everything utorrent can do and isn't 6 years old

I need a new client. Is qB really as horse shit as f.am claims?
Before I had to hunt for albums or spend time on a dozen other sites and channels and bloody soulseek to get the music I wanted. These days I just open what and grab it. If it's not there, a simple 10GB request and it turns up within the day.
Having /comfy/ buffer on what makes it such a top tier site goddamn.
>deluges offers same functionality as utorrent
that is just not true. deluge 32bit for windows is haram. files have to have to same name as torrent. its browsing experience is worse than MaM's.
>Fuck a nigger in the horse
what now? literally what the fuck
You can filter the torrents by trackers and use the search bar but I see your point.
I've always been a disorganized person anyway so I don't mind.
>Transmission: no features
>µtorrent: outdated, closed-source
You just can't win.
>As of now I've managed to get into some trackers and I believe they cover most of my needs:

>UHDBits - gives me access to TayTO encodings
>PrivateHD - fills the gap if something is missing on the other two
Last time I posted anything close to this shitty I was banned. Fuck you mildyincoherent. What tracker is he even staff at
>i don't ever check to see who's staff where btw
yeah, but i did spend every single fl token from this christmas.
which actually did get me up 0.10, but i'm just tired of me looking like a leecher when i am trying my damndest to upload.
i'm from %shit_country_name% and i can't get into what.cd since my whole country is banned from interview on IRC
some guy here said that if i get power user on animebytes he'll give me an invite to wcd
i got PU https://animebytes.tv/user.php?id=39870
a-anon, are you here?
I'm afraid I'll be at work f.am but here's the next op pic

Kill yourself desu senpai baka
Please no bully.
I just wanted an answer
is PTP hard to use
i guess i won't be joining what anytime soon
but i can get PTP invite in 2 months (they require atleast 6 mo old acconut on AB)
just trying to figure out if it's worth it
well i hope i'm not
i'll get that invite then
also, not really /ptg/ news, but did you guys know that RuTracker is now banned in Russia?
it's userbase dropped down only by 10 percent tho, because before blocking RT admins made a big campaign to educate russians and teach them how to use VPN/Tor
Yes, it's one of the best movie trackers out there.
TehC is a solid alternative to PTP. There are a few trackers you can get into from it, but that's not why you join it.
Ok, so you're a complete cunt. Nice to know.
>TehC is a solid alternative to PTP
There is no alternative to PTP. An alternative implies that they are comparable. TehC is far below PTP.
>Ok, so you're a complete cunt. Nice to know.
Stay triggered. Just because you can't join PTP doesn't mean you should pretend that TehC is worth joining.
Not really, both /ptg/ and reddit agree IPT is shit.
Just because someone is on /ptg/ claiming IPT is shit doesn't make them a redditor. In fact the only people claiming it does are IPT faggots.
/ptg/ has been pretty solidly anti-IPT since october/nov, and the stance before that point in time wasn't particularly good either.
The past 3 weeks have been marked by a fairly well defined defense of IPT by a few dedicated posters. But as a whole, IPT is still regarded as curry and shit for the majority of private tracker users.
Again nice try, but i've been here longer than you have, several years longer than I have had a reddit account.
Formatting like this was far more common several years ago on chan anyway.
>IPT is the best general tracker
which makes it garbage compared to any real private tracker.
We already know general trackers are garbage, no point picking the best of the garbage when you could just get on HDB, PTP, AHD, AB, W.CD, etc.
Niche trackers are always better than general trackers.
Jesus ... it's just about getting files.
Sure, sure /ptg/ spokesman .
We know reddit mods are buttmad staff from the trackers that IPT owner DDOSed,so that's clear.
Yea he's an old redditor, god knows why he even left r/trackers to shitpost here.
>e even left r/trackers to shitpost here.
jokes on you shit stain, I started here and have never once posted on r/trackers
>sure /ptg/ spokesman
I obviously am in these threads more than you, unless you're here 12-15 hours or more a day, I am here far more than you.
>We know reddit mods are buttmad staff from the trackers that IPT owner DDOSed,so that's clear
/ptg/ just thinks IPT is shit for their selection of well seeded torrents as well as being a black stain on your record if you ever try to get on real trackers like HDB or BTN. You better hope to god there isn't an IP leak or something on IPT because your cabal accounts WILL get banned.
>We know your samefagging here hard
do you know what samfagging is?
Samefagging is when I try to impersonate a 2nd person to make it seem like more people share my same point of view, you simply quoted 3 different replies by me. None of which I was trying to same fag with, as they all were replying to different comments at different times.
Jesus fuck, and you kids call ME reddit
How is formatting reddit?
I have been formatting this way since before you'd even heard of reddit you dumbass, not to mention, reddit is only an insult if you're a fucking teenager or edgy early 20s faggot anyway.
Nope, the local government simply refuses to bend over for wal-mart, minimum wage in this area is too high, wal-marts are built all around my area, but none here directly because it's too expensive for them to open here.
>I was OP more than you posted here the last couple of weeks you autistic dumb fuck!
Who gives a fuck if you were OP?
I could be OP too if I bothered to Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V, big fucking deal.
I've still been in these threads longer than you, and on 4chan in general longer than you.
What are you even talking about?
I was formatting like this before reddit became a webstite, how the fuck can you call this being reddit?
You're literally trying too hard at this point.
not me shit stain
>I obviously am in these threads more than you, unless you're here 12-15 hours or more a day, I am here far more than you.
Why are you saying this shit like you're proud of it? Fucking NEETs...
Look, you faggs really need to go back to r.eddit now.
>so you really are a NEET redditor?
I have a job so I can't be a NEET
I am a redditor in that I have a reddit account, but I have had a reddit account for almost 6 and a half years now, I have also been on 4chan for ~10-11 years at this point.
yes a general thread that never dies and has been running for months doesn't have ANY particular culture of it's own.... /s
Yeah because not a SINGLE person works from a computer, literally no one in the world has a job online. It's physically impossible.
I'm am introverted and I barely leave the house if i can avoid it, that doesn't make me unemployed.
Yes of course, no one releases new shit through animebytes, all the sub groups have their own release routes, usually via FTP or just using nyaa.se directly.
The benefit of Animebytes is there is no banned list like BakaBT, you also have much better retention. So older anime that will have 1 or 2 seeds on nyaa/bakaBT will have 10-15 seeds on AB.
AB also has the widest selection of encodes, so while Nyaa/BakaBT will generally have most encodes, AB will have all of them in one place and well organized so you can pick and choose which encode you prefer.
>that's fucking sad.
How so? I never said I was an active redditor, I use 4chan far more than I use reddit.
You're just being a little edgy cunt by calling people "reddit' and thinking it's an insult. Reddit itself is just a link aggregator. Hate certain reddit communities, sure, but hating reddit as a whole is just stupid and started as a meme more than anything real.
anyone else find it hard to seed on wcd? i fear dling because muh ratio. how do i get good ul? damn
Looking for a forum on TV ripping advice. Got a capture card on the way but haven't got any idea where to start. I'm planning on using windows media center and then reencoding the captures with handbrake if all goes well. Any other protips appreciated
Should I get Spotify Premium or download from WCD? I can't hear the different between 320 and FLAC, and Spotify Premium uses 320 Opus which is better than MP3. I also don't want to use DL on WCD. Thoughts?
>I can't hear the different between 320 and FLAC
Then you probably aren't listening to the right music.
Kinda. That's not really the number I care about as much as the actual GB difference between upload and download, though. 85GB is a lot of music.
Nah, I'm just using autodl. My seedbox just minds its own business. I check it every now and then and flush all torrents+data with seeds >= 1 and peers == 0 when it fills up.
Anything better than this pile of shit?
This guy's an idiot. I'd dare him to do a blind AXB test between 320 CBR and FLAC. He wouldn't be able to tell the difference even on really expensive reference equipment, nevermind shit headphones.
The song in question is Beethoven's 9th violin sonata, it has a large variation in highs and lows, it is one of the best examples you can use to really showcase how much better FLAC is, you CAN hear the difference in this song, even with only decent headphones.
Which for reference I am using a Schiit Magni/Modi amp/DAC paired with AKG K712 headphones.
Here is the Opus 320kbps Spetrogram of the same song.
>you CAN hear the difference in this song, even with only decent headphones.
>Which for reference I am using a Schiit Magni/Modi amp/DAC paired with AKG K712 headphones
Because you can see what gets cut off on the high end and how you lose detail even in the mid range.
Listening to them you can hear a difference as well, especially when you're trying to hear the high notes clearly, they are much more muddled in the MP3s or the OGG.
You don't have the source FLAC of this song anyway, so you obviously aren't listening to the difference yourself.
>you can see what gets cut off on the high end and how you lose detail even in the mid range
this is what i'm saying is stupid. judging what's transparent or not by looking at those pictures is retarded. you can make similar spectrograms for pretty much all music out there.
>You don't have the source FLAC of this song anyway, so you obviously aren't listening to the difference yourself.
>this is what i'm saying is stupid. judging what's transparent or not by looking at those pictures is retarded. you can make similar spectrograms for pretty much all music out there.
Well unless you have the source to compare it's a moot point and the spectrograms are the only thing that I can post that will show a difference.
Suffice to say however, classical music is one of the areas where FLAC really does shine, the variations in classical are far more pronounced from the lows and the highs as well as their volume levels change drastically compared to most modern music. You can much more easily hear the difference in classical than you can with something like R&B or electronic or something with strong bass notes throughout that muddies the whole thing so it doesn't really matter.
sure, but "there's a quality difference and i have the spectrograms to prove it" is such a parody of the pseudo-scientific audiophile that i'm far from sure you aren't intentionally trolling.
Only reason I am posting them is because it's literally the only way to "show" someone the difference without sitting down with them on a decently nice headphone setup and making them hear the difference, and since this is 4chan, I really only have one option.
Here is 192kbps CBR MP3 for anyone who wants to see what shitty bitrate looks like in comparison
>does not at all show if something would be transparent to the listener.
it actually kinda does in this particular case if you know exactly what to look for, though I agree for the average person the spectrograms mean almost nothing.
as a sound engineer working all day long with spectrograms, I couldn’t agree more with you.
First time I saw a spectrogram, I had no idea what the fuck I was looking at, now I immediately know what’s wrong with a recording just by looking at its spectrogram (and I fix it) when doing audio restoration and enhancement.
After hours of troubleshooting, I've noticed that one port on my router can't handle 2k+ torrents without packet loss, while the other ports are fine.
Is this repairable? I assume I got a partially burnt capacitor.
Fuck I'm getting the same problem again.
I would, if I could know 100% the problem is my router. None of my other PCs in the same network have any packet loss. Just my main PC with 2k+ torrents. Changed cables, router ports, tried both of my mobo's NIC ports.
Router never goes above 10% CPU/RAM.
Why the fuck isn't this on their main website?
Seriously, what the hell do I do with BTN Bonus points? I have zero desire to ascend UC as it doesn't even come with an inactivity pruning bypass. I'm getting 1.6 million of these a month.
Anyone have experience with WhatBox or any other seedbox services?
