Chronicle video now linked via bittorrent
« on: May 26, 2004, 06:02:45 pm »

A site called my5minutes.com allows anyone to upload videos to it, and
then they are served out to the world via bittorrent, which allows for shared bandwidth usage...

I've taken the liberty of uploading the Chronicle video, to allow others to see it without each having to download it from the FSP site (and thus use a chunk of the FSP's bandwidth each time)

Please feel free to pass this along to friends, neighbors and relatives who want to see what I think is some of the best coverage of the FSP done by the mainstream media today.  You will need a bittorrent client installed, but they are getting more common and popular these days.
I recommend Azureus, a java based one, from http://azureus.sf.net
See also: http://dessent.net/btfaq/ for more (slightly dated) info.

The torrent file:
http://www.my5minutes.com:6969/torrents/13667_FreeStateProject.wmv.torrent

Perhaps, someone could add this link to the http://www.freestateproject.org/news/media_archive/0196.jsp
page as well.

Just read the http://my5minutes.com site... VERY cool.

Ready for some friendly competition?

Here's a 220 MB FULL resolution version:

http://www.my5minutes.com:6969/torrents/14230_Free%20State%20Project%20-%20Chronicle.mpg.torrent

It came from a TIvO recording, whereas it seems the one you've posted is from VHS.  Plus, the 220 MB version has tighter editing.

After you're done downloading that, remember to leave your BitTorrent window open so, you can help seed the file to others, and increase total download speeds!

Then, be sure you go here:

http://www.my5minutes.com/displaymedia.php?pos=-1884
1.  Register (free)
2.  Vote it 5 stars!
3.  While you're at it, leave a comment.
4.  Send the link to a friend or two.

With only 51 votes, we can hit the top slot on the whole site!!!

Regards,
Ian


BTW: Chronicle has been on Overnet and Edonkey2000:

Also, if we hit the Top Rated #1 slot, it should be easy to become the #1 most downloaded, and perhaps even featured.

Ian

We were top rated for a little while, but now we've dropped as someone rated it less than 5.  Please get on and vote 5 stars so the video can stay at the top of the list.  Already, 17 people have downloaded it.

I went on and registered. When I tried to vote a dialogue box came up and said I had already voted.  As seems to be the case on most of these sites there was no 'contact' link to complain at.

Attention Broadband Users!

Please go download and rate the video, as gaining #1 rated status is very simple, we'd only need about 55 "5 star" votes!

Take a moment, you won't believe how fast the download is!

The video is currently on Page 2 of the "Top Rated" section with a total of 8 votes.

With more than 10 votes, we'll make the front page.

I know there are a bunch of fellow broadband users out there.  This might take 10 mins of your time, and we'll have the #1 position on the site with more than 55 votes.

Cast your vote! (preferably 5 stars)
