>decide to steal food
>steal the oldest, most stale moulded loaf of bread
Why? If you've already committed to stealing why not just do it properly?
you're such a cunt
YIFY is fantastic for downloading movies that just came out which you arn't sure about, are you going to waste 16GB on a full bitrate 1080p rip just to find out the movie sucks?
>he dosen't realise how useful YIFY is
>he dosen't buy and rip his own blu-ray movies for archival purposes
>>Why? If you've already committed to stealing why not just do it properly?
The same reason thieves in poverty-stricken neighborhoods don't rob houses in Beverly Hills.
It's just lower fruit.
It takes me a long time to download a 15gb movie.
So i take the one that's like 1 or 2 gigs in size.
In the end, i watched the movie nontheless, and if it's something i really like, i can always download higher definition later.
Why would i download a 20 gb American Sniper Bluray REMUX, when the movie is awful? Having a higher quality does not magically make the experience less awful.
I like the idea of making highly compressed rips available, but from what I understand Yify actually does a pretty poor job of it.
A highly compressed 720p or even 480p rip with variable bitrate audio and video using good codecs could end up quite watchable for a small size. But trying to do "tiny HD1080p" seems like a mistake.
Plenty of people have slow or metered internet connections. And if you just want something to watch on your laptop during a train ride or something, then downloading very high quality videos seems pointless.
You autists really good complain about everything.
Why the fuck do you care what torrents other people download?
There are reasons why people download Yify torrents, I'll explain this very simply so your autistic minds can understand:
- Not everyone in the world has incredibly fast bandwidth, they don't want to wait forever to get a movie.
- Not everyone in the world has unlimited plans, they have download limits.
- Not everyone is 'le special movie quality critic', they just want something that looks decent enough.
I'm just going to assume you are a fat, anime obsessed NEET with nothing going for you in life, so you get irrationally angry at things no normal person would care about.
I'm right aren't I?
>feeling special because part of some website
>not having quick and easy access to good rips of whatever movie you want
>come back to 4/g/ from 8/tech/
>people actually downloading Yify rips
Holy shit, is this some joke or is 4chan really this far gone?
As I said, but you're obviously too retarded to understand:
Not everyone has access to fast net, or cares about having perfect quality.
Sorry to offend Le Ultra Fedora Tipping Video Quality Critic.
>Not everyone has access to fast net, or cares about having perfect quality
Yeah, you and niggers. Great. You're nigger-tier. I get it. You don't have the money, equipment, or living standard as the rest of civilized society and you watch YIFY on your mom's laptop when she's not using it. We get it. Now go be poor somewhere else.
>b-b-but muh quality
>stupid normies don't even know quality video
>Not buying the most special edition there is of said blu-ray
>Not playing it on a 65+ Inch TV
>Not having at least a 5.1 surround system
>Not using Bowers & Wilkins speakers
>Not sitting comfortably in a comfy couch
>Not covering yourself in a comfy blanket
>you will never care enough about other people to get angry at what kind of movies they download and it what quality
Feels sad man.
It looks decent enough and takes no time to dl or transfer.
Sure I also prefer full BRrips for movies I keep rewatching, but yts is pretty convenient.
The only real con is the sound quality.
>tfw my country doesn't have IMAX apart from like one place that's meant for educational stuff
If we did I might actually have considered going to the movies every once in a while since otherwise I'll just get a worse experience than watching it at home.
This is one of the best movies for 2014.
I live in a 2nd world country and we have 2 IMAX theaters playing movies all the time. Too bad they use digital projectors but it's still better than normal theaters.
>I live in a 2nd world country and we have 2 IMAX theaters playing movies all the time. Too bad they use digital projectors but it's still better than normal theaters.
Just read that we are getting a commercial one soon. Wonder how overpriced it's gonna be. Still, about time.
The other one belongs to a museum and is a combination imax-planetarium thing.
Now all we need is some damn KFC op here.
Can someone explain to me PLEASE
Why do people say, "I dont want to waste Xgb on a movie i dont know if its good"
Question is, what are you wasting? What are you losing?
10, 15, 20gb is nothing, takes like an hour or two to download (could just do it overnight if you like), and surely you have enough quota?
I mean, I'm in fucking Australia and people make fun of our internet, but to me, 20gb is nothing.
Presumably most of you are us & eu, so why the fuck do you care?
>>Why do people say, "I dont want to waste Xgb on a movie i dont know if its good"
They are poor and have to wait a long time for a movie to download.
Or they live in Australia where you have to pick what to download because otherwise you will hit your cap and your internet won't work anymore for the rest of the month.
the same reason i don't suggest a starting videomaker to buy a €2000+ camera. you don't need to see every single hair if the movie is bad itself, and a ripped 1080p is fine because is better than watch a movie in streaming (shitty sites and shittier compression) but you don't have to download 10gb or more. you're just having the quality you need to watch the movie withouth problems
Some telecom companies provide internet
for people in a limited amount of GBs per
for example they provide you with a 50 GBs
that you can only use this amount of gigabytes
in that month.
some of them also provide an extra
of course for an extra amount of money, after
you finish the entire internet quota they reduce
the speed to a crazily slow internet.
>mfw I don't care
>mfw I will still continue downloading YIFY movies
>mfw I will STILL continue watching movies on my 4.5 inch moto g
no you faggot but it's the same fucking thing, use more resources than something really needs, i have quite fast internet but 2GB is less than a hour, 10GB is an entire evening so why do i have to wait? plus the fact that if you start looking at the pixels you're missing the movie.
>getting stuff for free that usually requires you to pay for like they literally sell it in the shops
>person who makes it is getting less money to feed their kids
Yes literally stealing. Not that I give a fuck about starving children.
>nothing was taken
Cept it was. It's a copy of a licensed property (movie) that is created and viewed without a license. That copy rightfully belongs to the rights owners. You're holding on to something that doesn't belong to you. It's stealing.
>I can't take your car and you still have it afterward.
Yeah just like I can't take a song and pretend I sang it and sell it on the internet. The song still exists mang I'm totally not stealing another person's work.
>Not understandng how property and licensng works
>Yeah just like I can't take a song and pretend I sang it and sell it on the internet
That's when you are making money from somebody's work, but downloading it is not stealing nor making money off somebody else's work.
>how can a copy belong to somebody
>How can a song belong to a publisher? >How does Intellectual Property work?
>Why cant I just rip off ideas and work that's protected by patents and licensing?
>That's when you're making money from somebody's work
No, you're not lawfully in posession of the said property. Even if you gave it away on the internet you're still stealing because you're giving away something that doesn't belong to you in the first place.
>Group produces high compression variable bitrate videos in 1080p
>Not as high quality as low compression, but a fraction of the size and fine most of the time
>Somehow unforgivable that a 2 GB video is not as good quality as a 16 GB version of the same video
The only reasons I can see why anyone would be ass aspained as the OP is ether autism or being a leech on the bigger files and being asspained over not enough people seeding on public trackers because of people like him.
If I go into a shop and see a loaf of bread there, I can steal it, buy it, or leave it be.
Let's say I buy it, the shop owner gets money.
Let's say I steal it, the shop owner loses the bread and therefore potential money, because now nobody else can buy it.
Let's say I leave it alone, nothing happens for now, but someone else may buy it.
Let's say someone puts the movie interstellar online.
I can either buy it somewhere, watch it for free via the Internet, or do nothing.
Let's say I buy the movie, the producers get money.
Let's say I 'pirate' it, I get it for free, the producer doesn't get money (but tbh I'm not interested in the movie enough to buy it, so he wouldn't get money from me anyway), but nothing changes physically. No blu ray or dvd was taken, it's still online, he can continue to sell it.
Let's say I do nothing, then nothing happens.
From my point of view, the uploaders could be called piratesor thieves, but the person downloading it? Nah. It's weird anyway. What does the uploader get from uploading the video? Unless he has his own website and gets money from ads, he doesn't get anything out of it
yify 720p (top)
dvd rip i did myself (bottom)
inb4 jpeg, png is over 4M, and this is more than enough to see the difference
point is: if you want to save space, a good quality SD rip will typically beat a bit-starved HD rip
>point is: if you want to save space, a good quality SD rip will typically beat a bit-starved HD rip
you retarded mongoloid. first of all your pics are probably fake or you altered the yify images.
secondly you prove nothing by showing that a video with HIGHER BITRATE looks better than one with a lower bitrate
even if your supposed video beats yify, it doesn't matter because the file size will still be bigger.. people download yify because of its filesize
There people RIGHT NOW in this board that have limited download caps, low internet speed and only download YIFI rips
you're welcome to get yify's encode of The Butterfly Effect to check for yourself (time in in the picture)
yes, my dvd rip is bigger, but no bigger than yify's 1080p releases. there was no 1080p version of this film on yts
>secondly you prove nothing by showing that a video with HIGHER BITRATE looks better than one with a lower bitrate
not him, a SD encode will in most cases look better than a YIFY HD-encode with similar bitrate.
i didn't do as good a job encoding this, but it's also from DVD (didn't use the full resolution by mistake)
yify's 1080p release is 1.7G, my dvd rip is 1.6G
yify's is sharper in some places, but has a ton more artifacts
note that these sd encodes could be better again if i used a high definition source and scale it down, rather than using dvd's, but these were ripped ages ago
Not everyone lives in an area with good Internet and not everyone has the money to spend on it.
Besides, I have bad Internet because all I do is read manga, and play VNs all day. All of those have relatively little data for the length of the experience compared to big-budget Hollywood movies. With a VN, you can get a ~4 GB file that you can read for upwards of 50 hours. Even anime, by far the most data-intensive thing I do, has tiny files compared to big Hollywood blockbusters. If I were a normie I'd be watching Hollywood shit that takes ten times as much data.
Weeb shit doesn't usually take much bandwidth.
>not him, a SD encode will in most cases look better than a YIFY HD-encode with similar bitrate.
no they dont
what i'll do is i'll get a yify 720p version of something i have, cut a segment out of it, then encode an SD version of that segment to the same size, and compare that
hardly anyone does SD encodes properly either
anyone can easily manipulate an encoder to their own settings to get whatever result they want..
show me an sd rip out there already on torrent sites that looks better than a 720p yify rip and is the same or smaller filesize
>anyone can easily manipulate an encoder to their own settings to get whatever result they want..
i'd be making the sample the same size as yify's
if anything it's a disadvantage for me, since i'll be forced to use the same number of bits that the yify segment did, where if i did the full film (would take too long for the thread) then my encoder can figure out how much the scene needs itself
why hasn't anyone pointed out that OP's pic is completely fraudulent, or at least not representative of what yify 1080p rips generally look like? like, at "best", OP's upper pic is from a single frame of some corrupted file or something.
no because you can pick just pick and choose which scenes best help your argument then do a bunch of trial and error encodes until you get the result you want
anyhow, why do you hate yify? it doesn't affect you at all so why do you complain?
>hurr these other rips don't have enough seeders because people don't like them
then in the next thread
>hurr im private tracker master race all my movies max my speeds out
so seeders aren't an issue either
>hurr sd rips look better than yify
well then prove it, by using encodes out there already on torrent sites that you claim dont have enough seeders even though you don't even use those said sites
too many autists on /g/
public service announcements have to be repeated until there is a change.
it is for the greater good.
that is true, people who watch YIFY rips really do not care about movies at all because quality isn't important to them.
fuck it, why have 1080p at all, VHS baby! Bring back tracking lines and blurry crt monitors, who fucking cares i'm just killing time till the bus gets here!
you forgot you are on 4chan, land of autists, where everyone feels the need to defend their stupid little choices like nvidia,amd,intel and even things they never chose themselves like cut vs uncut.
Why does this look so noisy and shit /g/? Using MPC-HC, madvr and LAVfilters
both look pretty terrible, i've at least included better quality 5.1 channel audio, the directors commentary, and formatted subtitles in mine though
i think dvd res vs yify's 1080p encodes are a better comparison, 860M for a 2 hour movie just isn't good enough
I never encountered a YIFI release on my torrent sites, never downloaded one. I saw a few on Piratebay the other day when I was trying it out..I only use public trackers when my private one fails me and that happens like once a year. >>47134743
What do you mean by waste? It's no like my bandwidth is limited lol. I can dl 100gig torrents I don't give a fuck. I'm on 1 gigabit fiber power master race top kek
I'm too much of a pleb to even care anymore about HQ rips.
I just use movietube.co, it has close to everything in 720p/1080p and pulls directly from Google's servers.
I just push the videos to my Chromecast and it's great.
But other films don't have the shit grainy look while being a lot smaller in file size.
It takes me 5 mins to dl a yify rip. The only time I ever download a movie is when I'm taking my laptop and want something to watch while I'm not able to be online. I don't care about stupidly high quality, I don't need to be able to see every single pore on some faggot actors face to enjoy a movie. Get over it neckbeards.
yeah i feel the same. if i know the movie is going to be worth my time then i will always grab the best quality i can get. if i am unsure then fuck it i will just get a yify to watch while i am sitting doing some boring shit with it in a window not fullscreen. yify is great for that.
The fucking mental gymnastics you're going through to protect a group of people that can't encode for shit is astounding. Can Daiz please some in here and call this guy a faggot? Daiz please.
much rather have yify, never had a bad rip. what's funny is pic related
I care about availability
Don't give a shit who encodes it, if it's available and well seeded I'll watch that, no fucks given
The only films I download to keep are things I really want, or visual epics
>some guy said once that if you are bothered by small things, you're a small person
>this is somehow immediately true
What if that guy in your picture is just a moron?
I wish I was a mod. There is no point to these threads. You can't stop me, bitch nigga. Cry more, fag. In fact, I'm dling Interstellar (YIFY) as I type these hurtful words. Please die.
Mine costs 40€ a month with 100Mbps down/10Mbps up, unlimited landline, two mobiles with unlimited calls and SMS and 1Gb of internet each, and 130 channels of cable that I don't give a shit about.
