Another germanfag here, this is news to me.
Nobody I know ever got sued or just got a letter from his ISP for downloading shit.

Not only that but most people are watching stuff that currently airs. German companies don't even know about these until months later, not to mention that the only thing they'd care about are actual rips of the German BD anime versions but nobody needs German dub and all this shit.

Sysadmin for a large university here.
We (and basically everyone else) only care about unauthorized filesharing if we get a DMCA notice because of it (since we're basically an ISP they get sent to us and we're supposed to forward them once we've identified the person who did it). We don't sit and stare at the squid logs or something looking for bittorrent packet headers or something equally autistic.
Also relevant: a while ago, I did some analysis of >10k DMCA notices received over the past several years. As far as I can tell, there have been zero notices related to anime in any way. You're perfectly safe.

>>118658190
Highly valid point. Ad profiteers are human refuse.

I only stream to check out what kind of anime that I will be downloaded. I don't want to downloading things that just be trashes in my HDD.

I'm currently looking to download Oreimo season 2. I watched the first season back in 2011 and never followed it up. The only torrent I can find, on Nyaa, has 5 seeders and is an unofficial batch.
Is there a better torrent, or do I just have to wait? It's going to take 6 hours, but time isn't too much of an issue as long as it's done before I go on holiday (in approx 36 hours).

Horriblesubs just rips from Crunchyroll shit. They are fast but the subs are meh.
Commie has good subs but sometimes they decide to "troll". If an anime is finished, you should use releases from e.g. Coalgirls. They have the best quality.

Yes it is. Also why is it that you faggots have to have an aneurysm over someone streaming?

It's like you're eating perfectly cooked lobster on a gold plate while someone else is eating some cheap 2 dollar taco in the comfort of their own house. Why the fuck should you care? Just enjoy you're superior experience and let idiots or the people who can't afford internet do what ever the fuck they want. Jesus christ the elitism here makes me cringe so much.

I haven't streamed anime since 2008 on youtube but this looks, fairly decent? They rip from horriblesubs and seem to have a few other options for subs when it comes to movies, It takes less than five seconds to close all the surrounding ads, the audio is also excellent.
The only downside is the watermark on the top left for screencaps.

I know, anon. I'm no streamer myself, but honestly there isn't much to hate here. The visual and audio quality is superb, i'm finding myself more accepting of streaming in general. I rarely use the playback or encoding options, occasionally i'll make Webms with the downloads I have but thats about it. I'm starting to see a few advantages to streaming I didn't see before, before you jump at me i'll try to explain. To start off, it works well as a one time thing, its high quality and immediately available for lookup, there are disadvantages related to producing content like Gifs and Webms but other than that its pretty decent for watching and doesn't require organizing your hardrives. It serves its purpose pretty well, after the experience is over there won't be very much of a change between the streaming experience and the player experience. If you chose to move on after watching an episode of something streaming requires nothing after the viewing experience either.

I literally have no need to download my anime, I just stream new episodes and never watch them again. 1080p on kissanime is fine for me, I don't give a shit about slightly better quality audio or video.

Kissanime devs used to advertise their site at some point when they achieved "HD" streaming quality and "changed the way of watching anime" or something along those lines.

Whatever the case, the shitposting was intense.

To be honest my download speed isn't very good. A 1080p movie thats a little over an hour long takes 15-20 minutes to torrent. I'll still do it though, i'm too stubborn in my old habits.

Thats pretty average, in my country it takes over an hour to torrent from HS 720.

To all you stream faggots:
I was stuck with crappy 4mb internet, a chromebook and a 500gb external for all of last summer.
If I can setup mad-vr etc and XDCC-enabled IRC on a chrooted linux environment, you faggots with decent internet and windows can do it too.
(btw, the intel chromebooks handle filters better than expected, so gg google)

I know how to torrent but have accepted that streaming has improved during the last half a decade. /a/ is not dead because a few anons prefer HD streaming. What kills /a/ is terrible discussion quality, baiting, shitposting, and general crossborders.

Instead you get a watermark on every vid! Isn't that amazing. If they change their filters you'd still need to update yours or manually remove divs, and that's retarded, I could be watching anime that finished autodownloading while I was doing something else.

Its pretty transparent and miniscule, but if its a serious problem for you, you don't have to stream. Its pretty small for a watermark and hidden, i'd end up ignoring it after five minutes judging from this pic.
>>118662441
>>
>>118663276
These guys didn't accept that streaming was quality inferior when megavideo was a thing (because you have the HD option!) and they are not going to accept that it still is (because 1080p! not even fansubs release 1080p!).

Hell, even this thread proves that /a/ isn't a hivemind, people still stream (if you'd be strict, most people stream nowadays because of CR).

Let's talk about the only actual benefit CR has over downloading: the ability to update the .ass track. While the HS bot scrapes the initial subs, CR streamers can end up watching a v10 script with fixes and suggestions reported by viewers.

Can you imagine a feedback-loop like this working for fansubs? What about your .mkv file being able to point to a repo where updated scripts live? Would you even want this?

You are forced to watch a stream of the sub or a download of the dub.

What do you do?
>>
>>118666792
What show? If it has a decent dub, a download. If it has a shit dub, I'll take a stream.
>>
>>118667018
The sub stream is very poor quality and the dub download is a mediocre dub at best.
>>
>>118659581
The sub mods only condone Crunchyroll for streaming. They expect everyone to either do that or buy the BD/DVD. Mentioning anything else gets you banned.
>>
>>118666792
Download the dub, mute it, start the stream at the same time you start the downloaded dub, but resize the window until only the subtitles show and put the window in the right place. The only problem is really that most streaming sites will only play at 1x speed, so you can't watch at 1.25 or 1.5x like a lot of people do.
