    The wire is great innit.
    Did you watch the first series?
    Don't think series 2 is understandable otherwise.

    Anyway, I'm sure this was actually a 'my connection is better than yours thread' in which case ....fukk off Squizz.

    Decent website

    Have a look at it.

    A 1mb should be ok if you have TTT 1meg.

    On TTT they won't close my account. The missus tried but they keep telling her that I need to come back and do it myself. ****s.

    You could always leave it on and make a cup of tea and it should have built enough buffer up by then to let it stream.

    ^I've got about 25% of the way through 300 Spartans downloaded already, only watched about 5 min's of it yet but not bad quality even on full screen (width). How can you save the video ?

    RC,
    Install the above flash downloader.
    Run it under IE and grab the FLV file.

    Then install this to play it.
    FLV Player - Free Software Downloads and Software Reviews - Download.com

    Works for me

    Thanks TT, I've got some FF extensions that are supposed to work, but you can't download and watch at the same time.

    Well I've finaly managed to get it downloading in FF using live HTTP headers, tried a few of the exrentions for FF and they could'nt find the links. Now to try TT's FLV player.

    I don't really want to save them all, it's just that with the satillite connection, if a cloud goes over I loose the link and have to refresh from the begining again

    Should this thread be in the multi-media forum cos it's a bitch to find if you if you don't know where it is?
    I have more than the average number of arm and legs

    Depends, it's just links to different sites so it depends on the hosting site. I just let mine buffer in the background (which does'nt seem to affect the speed) and watch later

    Someone correct me if this is BS but if you divide the file size by the run time I think that will give you the speed needed.


    Your 1MB connection is plenty but it depends what actual DL speed you are getting

    You know, it's a wonderful site and I dare say that within a couple of years we will all be able to sit down at our computers and watch live stuff. I've had it with the stuff that passes for tv.
    How wonderful that we can just invent our evening's entertainment.
    I'm sticking with torrents for now. I have managed to accumulate a massive backlog of tv series, movies and audio books to listen to, but as and when my connection is quick enough the this site looks superb.

    Major pirate website shut down

    Major pirate website shut down



    Katie Allen
    Friday October 19, 2007
    Guardian Unlimited

    The site allowed users to illegally download shows like 24

    One of the world's most-used pirate film websites has been closed after providing links to illegal versions of major Hollywood hits and TV shows.

    The first closure of a major UK-based pirate site was also accompanied by raids and an arrest, the anti-piracy group Federation Against Copyright Theft (Fact) said today.

    A 26-year-old man from Cheltenham was arrested on Thursday in connection with offences relating to the facilitation of copyright infringement on the internet, Fact said.

    The arrest and the closure of the site - www.tv-links.co.uk - came during an operation by officers from Gloucestershire County Council trading standards in conjunction with investigators from Fact and Gloucestershire Police.

    Fact claims that tv-links.co.uk was providing links to illegal film content that had been camcorder recorded from cinemas and then uploaded to the internet. The site also provided links to TV shows that were being illegally distributed.

    Visitors to the site could get access to major feature films, sometimes within days of their initial cinema release. Recent links took users to illegal versions of the Disney/Pixar animation sensation Ratatouille as well as to most of this summer's blockbusters.

    "Sites such as TV Links contribute to and profit from copyright infringement by identifying, posting, organising, and indexing links to infringing content found on the internet that users can then view on demand by visiting these illegal sites," said a spokesman for Fact.

    The group's director general Kieron Sharp said TV Links was the first major target in a campaign to crackdown on web piracy.

    "The theft and distribution of films harms the livelihoods of those working in the UK film industry and in ancillary industries, as well as damaging the economy," he said.

    Roger Marles, from Trading Standards said sites such as TV Links allowed people to break UK copyright law.

    "The 'users' are potentially evading licence fees, subscription fees to digital services or the cost of purchase or admittance to cinemas to view the films," he added.

    The British Video Association estimates that at least 459m was lost to the video, film and TV industries due to piracy in 2006.
