My sides just left the galaxy.
If you hold shift when you right click a file, you can change the kind of files it is. So you just download a video in whatever format and change it to '.webm'. It's honestly not that complex.
Posting the absolute best bleach fight
On windows, and you just asked for these kind of comments, and now you're telling us we're autists. Good job there.
FUCK OFF WITH YOUR SHIT
I AIN'T READING THAT
Yeaa... is this just stupid bait or stupidity. Well whatever.
It shows that you never watched any old anime besides the mainstream ones that came to the west.
Anime with good plot have always been pretty rare. There's the same amount of those from now and the past, it's just that you feel like there is less since there is so much more anime being produced these days which is haremshit for teenagers.
Well I guess it's true. It just feels that way. Still I'd hope there wasn't so much mediocre fanservice harem anime and more normal stuff, but yeah I guess it sells to teenagers. Sometimes it sells to me too, but I judt son't like it that much anymore.
4MB limit sucks for EDs like this one.
>1080p is a measure of quality
its one side of a resolution, dickhead. It says nothing about bitrate, or even codec used.
Streaming is about cost for the site thats using it; the less bitrate then the less bandwidth costs.
You can't even use madVR to correct for what lossy does to them, nor can you create webms here.
But by all means, keep eating shit like the retard you are.
>well the bitrate seems fine
It isn't. Fun fact: there is no streaming service which is capable of streaming in true HD. Hell, even HD TV channels have capped bitrates to optimize connections. The only way to get real HD (as a consumer) is from Blu-ray.
Though your typical pleb won't be able to tell his "HD" stream from true HD, it's only the quality whores on /a/ and /g/ that notice things like banding and desaturated colors and bother to fix them. In the grand scheme these things only matter on a technical level. So you can say yes, technically streaming is inferior to TV rips, which are in turn inferior to BD rips. For most anime fans though it doesn't matter since they likely would not even be able to tell even if you pointed it out. It's just a technicality.
All that said though, there's lots of reasons streaming is inferior as a service. I don't even bother mentioning video quality when people ask me why I don't stream.
Before I learned how to weeb I watched anime on Hulu, and I assure you the differences were obvious. Everything was super jagged. Maybe that's just Hulu, or just the shows I watched, but it was very easy to see how ugly they are.
I'm telling you anon, the quality really is great. I cant say I've seen any banding or desaturation, and if it is there, it's at a minimal. With Kissanime's quality and convenience, there's pretty much nothing to complain about.
You said there other reasons streaming is inferior. Please mention them.
Define "true HD". What bitrate with what codec do you consider "true"?
Also why is it that a/vfags can't deal with the fact that a lot of people just don't notice minor artifacting and it doesn't bother them. You're always losing something with lossy compression, so it's purely a matter of preference how you balance quality with size.
He probably means by true HD that the video won't bee seemingly bitrate starved and you won't see compressing artifacts almost at all from blu-ray, since the bitrate is high enough in blu-ray to not have problems. TV-stations and streaming sites have to use very much lover bitrate to keep their stuff at sane level. Also almost nobody could stream stuff at ricidulous bitrates.
Also TV-stations distribute the bandwith available for each of their TV channels and the more channels in one package the less bitrate each gets, and it would cost money to make things better, and you know how things work in business world, the less money the better. They keep the levels so that an average consumer would be happy.
Streaming sites use even less bitrate, and the thing which is the most turn off for me is the fact that they just randomly choose subs which are available at that moment and the subs can be the worst or the best. I'd rather download from the best fansub group available and enjoy the better encode and subs.
That's not really the main issue. The problem is streaming using a 'lossy' format. That means that some of the bits are lost each time the file is played. If it's just a file you download and watch many a handful of times, you won't even notice the affect. But obviously, if the file is streamed, it's watched thousands or millions of times, even, so it gets more and more degraded until the quality is just terrible.
Is that so? I haven't studied about streaming sites much, but it's hard to believe it's like that. I mean it's a digital file, not a VHS-tape. Any source on this one? Wouldn't it mean youtubes videos would gradually become shittier too? What about those jewtube videos that have been watched millions and millions of times and still look like in the day it was uploaded?
>The problem is streaming using a 'lossy' format. That means that some of the bits are lost each time the file is played
he got that abit wrong lol...
if you put something in a zip file, like a txt file, it better be lossless, or you're going to be missing some text
maps work this way, they create a legend to compress the data on the map into symbols; however with video the data is so massive this doesn't cut it
Some clever peeps figured out a bunch of stuff we don't really pay attention to on maps, and just chuck it away. Hence, lossy.
This breeds a very subjective argument that still goes on today: what is an acceptable amount of loss? Some draw the line at tuck fuckely edits.. nice me.exe
some common lossless formats do exist tho, png for images, flac for audio. But those types of data don't even compare to the sheer volume for video files.
And even blu rays come in lossy; its AVC1. The point he was trying to make is probably that is incredibly bad practice to continue to use lossy compression on a lossy source file. This tells the compressor to just keep chucking shit away, on something thats already had that done. 1-2 times might not cause that much harm on a very high bitrate source, but its still a horrible practice.
Well I get it a bit better now. I didn't say him to be wrong, he didn't just explain it very clearly.
Yea, compressing already compressed file is bad, I hate people who re-encode already encoded videos and it gets me rustled every time, since I work with encoding files a lot.
I guess it's so then. Anyway I believe the degrade in quality happens so slow you won't see it become shit that soon, but still it's the idea that it is degrading slowly.
Well, be it how it is, it luckily isn't my problem since I don't stream and I enjoy my videos from my hard drive.
Well one that is important to me is that I have far, far more options from downloading. I can choose what subtitles I want, if there is any choice to be had, and while watching I can toggle subtitles on or off at will for screenshots. I also have a choice about what to do with the file itself. I can keep it, copy it, edit it however I want. I can use it to make gifs or webms or take screenshots. Or I can just delete it if I don't want it anymore. Out of that list, the ability to keep a show for later viewing and the ability to use it to make gifs and webms are the two I find most valuable.
Another is more of a counterpoint I bring up in response to a very common argument from streamfags: muh download speeds. Or alternatively, muh bandwidth cap. Some kind of limitation on their connection. The gist of it is that streaming is just a kind of downloading. You're not saving any bandwidth, nor are you getting the data any faster through streaming than you would if you just downloaded the file via torrent, xdcc, or some DDL site. The only way the stream would be faster or use less bandwidth is if it was significantly lower quality than what you tried to download. Which brings us back to the issue of video quality, but in a less nitpicky and far more tangible way (i.e. something with like 50% the bitrate of its downloadable counterpart).
The last is just more of a warning: internet sites don't last forever. Goes for people who don't archive what they download too.
Not that anon, but that last one is also a reason why I like having everything on my computer. I'm a bit of a datahoarder, but I think the files are safer when I have them than when some random site has the file, they may delete it or close the whole site down at some point. I also have backups of everything so I'm sure I won't lose them that easily.
And I also enjoy being able to do whatever I want with the files when I have them on my computer. I also like to rewatch series sometimes so it's a lot easier to open a folder and watch it than it would be to search for a streaming site.
For me, I've just seen sites go down before. I've seen lots of files I took for granted become lost. Megaupload going down was the worst example of that. So many doujin and manga raws I will never be able to recover. It's why I almost compulsively download manga in both raw and scanlated form now. Anything remotely interesting I nab and store in redundant drives.
I have the same kind of thing with youtube. Whenever I favorite videos on youtube I just keep seeing them deleted, so now if I ever see a video I like more, for example AMV or MAD etc, I download it to my computer so I can actually watch it again if I want. I like rewatching some videos so it's nice to actually know that you can and it won't be deleted some day. Since you know, youtube is known of doing.
Fun fact despite the over exaggeration, the cross can be countered this way. Essentially he puts his elbow in such a way that the cross either hits it or goes over the top, hence the guard being known as the cross guard. Pushing through it and hitting him anyway is also possible if they are too slow to realize they need to move their head.
That show was so bad.
Recut the scene because fuck.
Still too lazy to see if anyone else posted this last thread.
>contributes by posting a simpson gif
Thanks for clearing that up, Sherlock.
Yeah, the last thread was pretty bad for that too. Too many people arguing and not contributing. Funny think is they're not mutually exclusive; some people are just worthless.
He's trolling or stupid. That's not what lossy means. Lossy just means some data is thrown away in the compression/encoding process. You can decode lossy video over and over from now until the end of the universe and it will never lose any quality. You only lose quality if you re-encode the video.
Also, ALL video you get today is encoded with lossy compression, including blu-ray. Blu-ray discs just have lots of space, so they can use very high bitrates to make it look good.
Uncompressed HD video is around 100 MBps. That's megabytes, not megabits. Your average 25 minute anime episode would be upwards of 150 GB.
Does anyone have the webm of the girl running on top of the ocean waves in a storm chasing a car on a cliff-side road? From what I can remember it's a Hayao Miyazaki film, and someone made the comment "wow Miyazaki holy shit".
Because most shows aren't made by a set of ambitious new animators that got into the job wanting to make good animation. They also got lucky getting to work on a series that gave them so much animation leeway.
>trying this hard
>made for ants
The final line is "watashi no tanjōbi" which means 'My birthday'. However, "tanjōbi' sounds a lot like "Bon Jovi", the 80's rock band and lead singer of said band. They're famous for songs like "Livin' on a Prayer" and "Bed of Roses." The juxtaposition of such a serious scene and a non-sequitur is humorous to some.
heard his name before but I don't know who he is, nor do I give shit, since I was 12 I pretty much only cared about anime, manga, vns and lns, I could talk half an hour about shinbo or sawashiro but I cannot give less about who bon jovi is
>People arguing about Bon Jovi
I do good work.
Let's get this thread back on track.
Dude fuck that resolution the hell you doin m8
8/10 amusing show
I just finished watching it too, like 10 minutes ago
what a piece of shit those last 2 or 3 episodes were
I assume you're using WfR. If so:
Resolution should always be the same proportions as the source.
Use Variable settings.
Always use high quality mode. It lowers size and looks better.
The crf and tolerance scale parabolically. 4:8 is near lossless.
Audio's variable should almost always be 1.
Denoise in the advance options eeks out a little more quality.
One of my favorite scenes in anime.
Sad the only fansub group covering it is GJM. They do good work but damn they're slow.
Think it's a bit early to call, since only two episodes have aired thus far. You did know that, right?
Nope, I didn't. Couldn't remember when I heard it (since I didn't really pay much attention to it at the time) and so I assumed it was further along than that.
I wish it the best of luck, though.
For me, it is because it sounds really familiar, like I've heard it from somewhere. I hate that feeling.
At one point I thought I might've heard it one time on Adult Swim, but it's hard to say.
Even though it is generic, I do like it.
I've got a Mosin and a couple SVT-40s because they're cheap, but I want something in 7.62x51. That's beside the point though, I just meant that in that webm her rifle is chambered in 7.62 NATO.
