"Bleach and Naruto episodes up to and including Naruto Shippuuden 53 are encoded with XViD. They will also play if you install ffdshow. Naruto Shippuuden episodes from 54 and Bleach episodes from 167 on are encoded with h.264. You will need a h.264 decoder installed. DB strongly recommends using Media Player Classic - HomeCinema for playing back h.264 material as the required decoder is built in, and does not require installation of any external codec packs. Alternatively, for slow systems, CoreAVC decoder is recommended for playback. This decoder is not free. DB does not support or recommend installing "codec packs" in order to view our releases. Complaning about non-working files, as usual, leads to a ban."
I think those guys are getting smarter.
Fuck those guys.
Holy fuck Naruto and Bleach just leveled up.
h.264 in an avi or xvid format is stupid do they not know how to use mkv
The overwhelming majority of the stuff they sub is utter shite.
Stop getting excited when a bloke in the depths of New Guinea discovers the wheel.
NARUTO AND BLEACH FINALLY IN HD ???
You my dear anon needs to learn the difference between codec and container.
OP here, no I don't download DB shit, it just surprised me that they moved on.
is this sum SLOOWWWPOOOKEEEEE
i hate all subbers for relasing shit in "mkv", "hd" "m.12" "abab3blahblah.9000" and whatnot
Just go with .AVI files alright? Those are good.
All that text instead of just saying "Install CCCP".
0/10. Would rage again.
This is a beatiful trolling technique. Look at that trolls, that is the way to roll.
No they aren't, faggot.
we need CCCP Pirate Edition with CoreAVC included to save some more time
They're trying to troll us by saying not to use codec packs.
Stop loving dads dick for a sec and think for a bit until you admit that just using the most common format is the easiest and best way.
>I think those guys are getting smarter.
If they're so smart, than how come they don't use mkv with softsubs and ordered chapters?
How come so many subbers refuse to use this superior combination?
Common does not equal good. If people continued to use only the most common technology, we'd still only have fire and the wheel.
yet /a/ stays just as retarded and keeps posting this shit here.
no need for wall of text if you all have to say is install CCCP
Becuase they don't know how, stop complaining know, they just learned how to encode in h264, wait another 2 years for matroska container.
In this case this is not a bad thing. Since AVI files offers decent quality and that's what everyone cares about, not accounting for those tech fags that need to have their certain numbers pinned down so they can watch everything in "High Quality". I tell you what, these morons couldn't even see the quality in the files if you straight out asked them.
Just wrote my 3rd letter to DB, imploring them to stop subbing shituto and bleSUX. They're bound to do it soon, as my reasoning is impeccable.
>*even see the difference in quality
enjoy upscaled naruto and bleach >_>
Just because it's what you like doesn't make it superior.
Shit like this makes me wish we could go back to the one and only true fansub format: VHS.
You're a retard if you can't tell the difference between an avi and mkv file of the same size.
Just get CCCP.
How is a smaller filesize with better readable subs not superior?
one causes my computer to skip frames of the animation, the other doesn't.
container and codec huh. Seems like one of them is just plain unneccessary for anyone who cares about the actual CONTENT of the anime and not if the anime has kawaii opening fonts
>container and codec huh. Seems like one of them is just plain unneccessary
I came this far and couldn't stop laughing, I'm going back to /g/ now.
I raged a bit.
99% of the faggots in this thread don't know the difference between avi, mkv, xvid and h264. Fuck you.
I can still play 720p almost without errors on my QUAD-TOASTER !!
how come I've never seen a file end in .h268, then?
Once again, /a/ fucking fails it.
You probably never will.
h.264 is the best available.
You can get video encoded in H264 in different containers like .avi, .mkv and .mp4.
.divx can always be renamed into .avi and is there even a .xvid format?
VC-1 is better because it is by Microsoft.
Why does nobody use it.
avi/mkv are just containers. xvid and divx are different video encoding standards, and h264 is just another way to encode video for xvid; it's slower because resolution is larger and file is larger, more information to process, less entropy. When will you learn?..
take it easy
Lol at people saying "install CCCP".
Enjoy your 1000 useless codecs.
believe it or not, I've used most of them at least once
>and h264 is just another way to encode video for xvid
...What? Both h264 and xvid are based on mpeg4, but they're different things.
always better to be prepared.
and if you don't have 16.7 MiB on your comp, not having the right codec should be the least of your problems
Funny fact, of all codec packs CCCP is the one with less bloat and useless crap.
ITT: poorfags with Pentium IIs
Stopped reading here.
Ahh, right. It's based on wmv9, isn't it? wmv9 was actually on par with h264, BUT being microsoft's child it's closed source, so it automaticly loses.
Is it superior to h264 in any way?
You kids need to sit down for a second and listen to somebody who knows what he's talking about. Now you can nerd rage this and that over codecs and containers and all that stuff. The one true fansub format is VHS. Spare me crap about downloading and quality, I probably know more about that than 90% of you anyway, and that's not what I'm here to talk about.
Back when fansubs came on VHS cassettes (ask your parents what one is if you don't know), you had to get them from somebody. Sure, the quality wasn't what you can get from a computer these days, and if you had to go through a distributor, you could be waiting weeks and have no assurance about even getting your stuff. But you got your stuff on VHS and watched it. Just because it wasn't first gen or second gen didn't even make that much difference. The shows were still good. Or still bad, but either way, we watched them because we wanted to. We watched the SHOWS. And you could always trade or give VHS tapes to somebody to watch. One format, one community.
Now you fucking kids come along with the rise of the internet. Well, good; shows are subbed as fast as they're aired, and you can get them almost instantly. There used to be a communal aspect of fansubs; now you just make three mouseclicks and wait. Mostly, that's fine.
But what the hell is your problem with codec this and container that? For starters, you seem to forget subbers do this for their own amusement. They do something for themselves; not for you, not for your goddamn e-penis wanking. You don't like how they do it? Do a better job yourself? Oh, you can't? Well, that says a lot already.
Now this goes both ways. You like codec X and container Y? Fine, they all have their pros and cons. Just don't whine about crap like "quality" this and "bandwidth" that. Any codecs used today give pretty much the same result. Nerd rage all you want about the details, but the fact remains that you can watch any fansub just as well in any codec or format. It's still the same fucking show.
If you want to wank about how much better your computer is, find a tech nerd forum for that crap. My computer decodes 2 1080p streams at once, and I still favor releases to be as universal as possible.
I really don't give two shits how you watch your anime. All I can conclude is that you're not a real fan if you care more about unrelated shit than the works themselves.
Now get off my lawn.
NARUTO AND BLEACH NOW I CAN DIE HAPPY
I SUCK COCKS
Maybe when an open-source and/or freely available version is done, like what DivX did for MS-Mpeg4 v3. Until then it's closed-source garbage.
I would find it hard to see a difference between an AVI and an MKV file of the same size, if the container format is the only thing that sets them apart, and I believe most people would, too. Since they're just containers and doesn't affect the video stream or audio stream in any way. Only possible thing you might notice would be things like softsub support, and perhaps a slightly reduced CPU overhead.
It's much faster to mux softsubs and video in an .mkv vs. .avi. And corrections are either a quick .mkv remux for the group side, or a small softsub download for the enduser.
avi can be combined with softsubs too, mkv has the ability to embed softsubs, even multiple tracks of them.
Also the ordered chapters which allow to outsource the OP and ED of a series like [Formua] does with Shugo Chara and Allison to Lillia.
cutting off OP and ED is one most stupidiest ideas ever
It's okay man. The kids will ignore you, but hey, I'm right here with you.
Even though you're just copypasta.
No its not.
only for poor fags and lazy encoders
What is the advantage of keeping the OP/ED in the file?
Splicing it up reduces the time to encode and the filesize, everyone wins. Except for people who can't afford Windows.
Good way of arguing, say why you don't like it instead.
get fuck out formulafag
I'm not that other guy, but some anime have varying OP/ED each episode.
Maid guy ED, so far Kogarashi's said a different phrase at the start of the ED.
Druaga OP, Fatina cycles through a few different outfits when vaulting over the station barrier/into the train. They've only shown 3 variations in 4 eps + 1 alternate ep though.
Anyways if the OP/ED varies at all, I'd keep them in.
If the OP and ED is exactly the same, and I mean EXACTLY, throughout the whole series/season, or at least 12-13 episode stretch, then I'm fine with having it cut out.
I don't want to miss any differences though no matter how minor.
Well if thats how it is, subbers will probably use the new OP/ED, they aren't that stupid.
>Anyways if the OP/ED varies at all, I'd keep them in.
Another good example is Hayate no Gotoku, which always has start-of-episode banter between the cast.
Fuck their new encoding. I'll just watch DB's stuff on Youtube, haha.
Ah yeah, that's a good one.
Yes, but what I'm saying is, if it changes every episode... there isn't much point splitting and then linking. You may as well just leave it in one piece and save you the trouble.
^_^ exactly throw in staff listing on every ep too
As >>11289802, I really don't care about the credits, not like I can understand them.
Only the song and animation sequences matter, though you're probably trolling.
Well, isn't it obvious that we're only considering shows shows where that doesn't happen in this case? What's your damn point?
It wouldn't make sense to cut the OP up since you couldn't play the file itself without confusion.
Other points are sequences that contain spoilers for the episode like Rosario + Vampire, something which I don't like as it might spoil the episode.
My point was, use it whenever you can get away with it, which is apparently also your point.
