Give me one legitimate reason why should I wait two hours to download an episode, when I can just instantly stream it with no visible difference in quality?
Protip: you cant.
Give me one reason why you shouldn't check this
Enjoying Australia? If you're not retarded you can automate everything. Why should I take seconds going to a streaming website when I can instantly play the video that downloaded the instant it was subbed.
>Downloading an episode
>Waist time and space on your hard drive
>Google search an episode, stream it in the same quality
It's just /a/ being /a/utistic.
Have you never read the other shitposting threads? It's because it's just as convenient both ways, but torrenting yield higher quality videos. By choosing to stream you are choosing the worse option while knowing that it is worse. You are seeing the options of $19 and $20 and choosing $19.
I don't watch things as they air and I don't want to have to constantly check for new episodes so I depend on RSS feed functionality.
Also I'm on Comcast and sometimes my internet goes down for 10 minutes for no reason.
I'd hardly say it's convenient both ways.
One I type in a password and I have everything before me, including an ordered queue of what I need to watch.
For torrenting, you either have to set up RSS automation, which can be a pain in the ass, or you download them manually. MAL / AniList / etc. are OK for keeping track of your current watching queue, but it's not as simple, and getting Taiga or MAL Updater to work all the time with your downloads folder can be annoying depending on your OS.
That said, as has been mentioned, there is an absurdly sharp drop in quality. It's not even questionable. And I cannot justify any sacrifice in convenience for what Crunchyroll and Funimation are spitting out. Seriously, they just need to hire some damn engineers to actually improve their site and infrastructure, but instead they hire out fansub groups to improve their translation time.
You can't really call the quality difference ignorable except by perfectionist autists. Funimation especially is really bad. Most videos have random green shit all over the beginning, and corruption occasionally throughout the episode. Sure it's watchable, but is it really a good idea to pay money for that?
>stream fags still salty about KA
>stream fags still in denial after being BTFO in previous threads
You don't even have to wait longer. It will download the instant it comes out. You'll be downloading it at the same time as your streaming website, how could you watch it from them faster?
You're choosing getting $19 now rather than $20 on your desk. Either way you're getting it instantly, you're just too stupid to acknowledge it in one instance.
As has been said before, what I'd really like is some sort of affordable, official, quality site that involves somehow downloading anime (I'll deal with DRM bullshit). But unfortunately Jap studios have no idea how to stay in business and would never agree to that sort of licensing deal.
>it will download the instant it comes out
Uh, no it won't. You'd have to automate that on your torrent client, which means playing with RSS feeds every season. On a streaming service you click a button and it adds it to your queue.
Resolution is not the issue, but i wouldn't expect an idiot like you to understand that.
That's a serious exaggeration. Have you watched a Funimation stream? I'm not saying it's impossible to have a good stream, it's just that the current official options (CR, Funi, etc.) are pretty terrible. (Hell, I usually stream my torrents over Plex and it's amazing.)
No problems, and my area isn't doing the cap due to HEAVY competition from Verizion.
I owe Verizion a sum of money from my stepfather not paying his plan he got under my name so Comcast it is.
Better than ATT, Time Warner, etc filthy midwest scum have to deal with,
Yeah actually pretty difficult. Nyaa has a single RSS feed (unless there's some hidden queue functionality I'm missing), and nobody wants to sit down on a Saturday and write regexes for their anime downloads. That's exactly the kind of thing you write software for to avoid.
>too stupid to do it yourself
Not everything is about intelligence. Just because I can write a regex doesn't mean I want to.
That said I didn't know about Shana Project, so thanks.
>one thread has a streamfag claiming that the screencap comparison is fake because he can't see the KA watermarks
>one thread has a streamfag repeatedly being in denial over streams being bit starved
>one thread has a streamfag not even knowing how to crop images
>one thread has a streamfag thinks downloading means using third party tool to download from streamsites
>one thread has a streamfag try to torrent and can't even find things on nyaa and can't download of bakabt
I thought the whole KA fiasco is going to be disastrous, but it turns out to be comedy gold.
>Janitor deletes dubs posts
>Doesn't delete the entire thread
Holy fuck, get your shit together. I'm not even the dubs poster but this thread shouldn't even be here. It's just streamfags being retarded fucking streamfags.
While it's certainly cool to blame the bald faggot for everything that has ever happened, in this case diaz and the fansub cartel are to blame for tt falling into disgrace. Somehow they decided that it wasn't fit for the anime community of the 21st century.
you didn't report enough.
all those threads everyone claim to be shit go unnoticed because instead of reporting and moving on, everyone comes in and batches about mods and janitors not doing their job without doing their part.
If janitors and mods actually did their jobs, they would delete this thread instead of coming in only to delete dubs posts. Don't give me that shit how I'm not doing my part because I already reported this thread forever ago. Now kill yourself.
>third world country
>share internet with the other 2 computers at my house
>still download the episode in 20~30 minutes or 10~15 if I'm the only one using the internet
Get a job and pay better internet, OP.
Unless you live in some special country like North Korea or Venezuela, if that's the case then it's okay to stream.
A janitor has been sitting in this thread for a while now. It's a fucking shame it's stayed up this long.
>no visible difference in quality
this is some grade A shitposting
Downloading has been the primary delivery method of fansubs since the internet became a modern commodity. Streaming is a new tech and while it's good and noob friendly it has plenty of inconveniences like not being able to search across the length of the video without possibly breaking the stream. Plus a good torrent takes maybe 3m tops on a stable connect.
Makes a good point, filesharing is how anime started to grow in the west, that's how even Crunchyroll got started, and so not only are they gonna they aren't gonna even recognize all the contributions of people's work because it isn't 'legit'.
My internet isn't that good but it rarely takes more than 5 minutes to download anything.
Streaming is fine, but I'd rather just have the whole file on my computer.
Holy fucking shit
Calm your tits faggot. I was just pointing out that downloading doesn't guarantee you watermark-less shows, even if you download from fansubs you'd still have the tv station mark.
