Hello, I'm pretty new to this site so I apologize if this is a silly question...

I was just wondering how the drama series/movie videos that I can download (for a price) are in terms of quality compared to the gigantic files I can get off of Bittorrent? Are these the same originals people get off of Bittorrent, or re-encoded "lesser quality" versions?

I only ask this because if they are the originals, this site would save me a ton of time downloading stuff from Bittorrent, and I would happily donate to this cause :)


You can usually tell by the number of parts in the dramas. For instance the high res "hana yori dango 2" with 3 parts to an episode are the untouched sars high res files split into 3.
I personally try to upload the highest res i can because i want to watch high res dramas myself. However when i need to hardcode since i do not have the original files only the RAW files available on torrents they usually become 5-600 mb after reencoding them with the soft subs. If only medium quality RAW's are seeded I have to upload even smaller files etc. etc.

The above and also:


Most subbing groups put their website or IRC channels in their subs and you can always get the subs for free from them until it get's licensed. The download from this site is an alternative way to download "usually lower quality versions" direct. The only thing shinji charges you for is the bandwith he has to pay for. I believe the bill for january turned out to be $16,000; which we all know a college student have lying around his dorm room .

Completely separate to this is the donations. That (apart from giving you a star and a really cool badge) let's you click a high res link under each video and if the file was uploaded in a higher resolution you can look at it like that.

AND OF COURSE if you are unable to donate anything you can only enjoy all of the great media on CR by streaming it in low res. Which is one H**L of a service to get for absolutely NOTHING

i jus joined, ok from what i get is that you are limited to 10gigs if you choose the 1 month route, so basically you can dl 10 gigs in 1 day and that is that right? you cant dl nemore for that whole month? if so isnt 10 gigs a bit too little considering the orginal files would be like at least 500mb+? correct me if im wrong, if that is so how many episodes can i dl with 10gig? say for example if i dl all of the monkey king's episode (if possible) using up my 10gigs, my donation for that month is over rite? my quoto is expired?

Any given file is no bigger than 300 MB, this site doesn't take anything bigger. Yes, once you use up your quota (even in one day) you can't download anymore unless you purchase more bandwidth.

Hi.

Might somebody be able to tell me how I can download the normal 'low quality' videos? I donated, but could only find high quality 170mb episodes for download, which is too much space and too long for me to take. I was told the low quality ones are downloadable too using the download quota.

Very much appreciated for any help.

Shinji told me 3 months ago that I could download both high and low, that's the only reason I donated for download quota. :S

He was probably referring to streaming High and Low quality videos when you become a CR Supporter/Donator. So I guess it was a misunderstanding.

Sorry, this may sound dumb. But if I donate to view high quality videos, can I download the high quality videos as well. I thought they could only be viewed. I already donated, but I was trying to figure that out.

Those are two separate things. You can donate to view High Quality vids and/or you can buy bandwidth for downloading the original files.

Hi! I got questions...

Recently I can't watch anything in crunchyroll, everytime i clicked on a vid it won't show
but everything else in the page is okay (except for the movie).
In other word, I can't watch movies by streaming anymore....
So, I was wondering, whether I'm banned or sumthing???

Then, I notice there's 2 types of payable packages,
1. Donate to get badges and to watch in high res...
2. Pay sum amount to download for certain GB
In my case, in order to be able to stream again, what should I do?

Thx

streaming should be free.. the problem isn't because u need to pay for something.

option 1. is so that u can watch high res videos, n in full screen.
option 2. is so that yu can download those videos. they're 2 different packages, btu shouldn't affect your streaming of videos in any way.

You probably have Firefox with Ad-Block. There is a new video player that works on Ad-Brite, so you are going to disable Ad-Block for this site.
For more information go to :
http://www.crunchyroll.com/showforumtopic?id=2953

Hope this helped you.

EDIT: Well the old player is back now so i don't think you'll have that problem.
