Freely Downloadable DVD: "Free State Project Video Clips"
« on: December 30, 2005, 02:14:25 PM »

UPDATE: New June '06 release info is below!
Be sure and download this new edition


I've compiled a new DVD consisting of the latest video clips relating to the Free State Project:
TV news shows, footage of protests in New Hampshire, etc.
Everyone is welcome to download it, and burn as many copies as you like!

The DVD image is freely available via BitTorrent.
First, you need a BitTorrent client. I've found Azureus to be the best one:
http://azureus.sourceforge.net/download.php

Once you've downloaded and installed Azureus (or if you already have a BitTorrent client), just click on any of the following:
http://thepiratebay.org/details.php?id=3499037
http://www.torrentbox.com/torrents-details.php?id=51736
http://www.mininova.org/tor/352509

This being BitTorrent, the more people that download, the faster it goes for everyone  :D
Please, once you have finished downloading, leave your BitTorrent application running, as this speeds up the download for everyone else.

If you run into any trouble, or have any feedback, please post here.
I'll answer questions as best I can, and am always looking for suggestions for the next cut of the DVD.

Share and Enjoy!

You bet!
There are two full seeds at the moment. Others are still in the process of downloading.

this torrent isn't working.

Can you be more specific?
"not working" doesn't give me much to go by for troubleshooting purposes:
What client are you using? Azureus or something else?
What version of the client?
When you click the .torrent, does it fail to try to download?
Does it try download, but fail to find any peers?
Does "not working" mean it stands around holding up signs saying "we demand better pay"?

I see that mininova.org shows 46 downloaders; my Azureus shows 11 peers actively downloading.
The peers are a mix of Azureus, BitComet, Shareaza, and ABC clients.

I really suggest downloading Azureus, it's got some great documentation, like this FAQ
Under Azureus you also have the "last-ditch" option of trying the alternate "Azureus Magnet" link style:
magnet:?xt=urn:btih:R26PJLL3D3GMCXSSZFUBL25VKWY4IYJG

As one more thing to try, you can connect to the tracker running on my own PC,
though this may disappear from time to time as I reboot, etc.:
http://ippon.dnsdojo.net:6969/torrents/Free+State+Project+Video+v1.3.torrent?8EBCF4AD7B1ECCC15E52C96815EBB555B1C46126

Please let me know which of the above you've tried, and whether they've worked.
I want you to have this DVD!

Over the past few months, I've put together a DVD image of video clips relating to the Free State Project:
TV news shows, footage of protests in New Hampshire, and of course some Free Talk Live stuff.

Hey - I'm connecting and see that it's an ISO image!  I'd recommend that you (also) offer it as an AVI.  I (and most ??? torrenters)  never burn anything or whact it on a "TV".  I'll extract the AVI from the image and what it on my PC which as true HDTV (1920x1440 x 32 bits).  But sometimes ISO to AVI doesn't work....

Anyway, this sounds great and I can't wait to see it.

Still not working.

And yes, I know what I'm doing.

You are getting connects because it is only working in the Azeurus type environment. You did not properly register the torrent with a tracker.

Yeah, I figured "just burn the .ISO to a DVD-R" would be the most easy procedure for the most people.

  I'd recommend that you (also) offer it as an AVI.  [...]  I'll extract the AVI from the image and what it on my PC which as true HDTV (1920x1440 x 32 bits).
An AVI would be awesome. Let me know if you run into any trouble; I can try recoding as an AVI as well.
Though if you watch on HDTV you'll be sorely disappointed; many of the video clips are pretty low-res, having been snarfed from TV station broadcast streams, then recoded, they're pretty grainy.

Drat! That could well be.
I confess I've never hosted a spanking-new torrent before, to say nothing of doing so off a public tracker.
I originally created the torrent via Azureus and probably took too many "default cause I don't know what the hell I'm doing" options.

I then re-created the .torrent with MakeTorrent, which has the benefit of letting one pick "Pirate Bay" as the tracker off a list without knowing what the hell one is doing. The one I uploaded to PirateBay and mininova is the one I created via MakeTorrent.

Checking the .torrent, it does look like it's using "http://tracker.prq.to/announce" as the tracker URL.

I've just now re-retried making a spanking fresh torrent from MakeTorrent, and uploaded to PirateBay as: http://thepiratebay.org/details.php?id=3426328
Can you try that one, and also please try using the one off using my private tracker: http://ippon.dnsdojo.net:6969/

If those fail, I'm open to suggestions... what am I likely doing wrong?
What should I to to make a properly-functional torrent for a wider range of clients?
If all else fails, I'm happy to just burn you a physical DVD and send it via post if you can put up a more well-formed .torrent!

Once your download completes, please leave your BitTorrent application open!
Since at that point you have a whole copy of the file, leaving it open acts as a "seed".
This has many virtues:
  • Makes downloads faster for everybody else who is still waiting
  • Keeps an extra "redundant" copy up on the Internet, so if any other full "seed" copy goes down, people can still keep on downloading

Let the freedom bits flow in an ever-increasing torrent....

Just surfed the DVD tonight, good job Denis.  My only gripe is that we haven't had another TV spot for FTL, that one is so old.  I'll have to call the reporter in May and see if he'll do an update.

Well, growing by 800% in 1 year should be newsworthy! Do let people know if there's a new spot and I'll include it in the next DVD.
I feel the same way about the Chronicle spot, it's getting old. Maybe as we start influencing the NH legislators this year, that will make news.
Speaking of which, now it's off to the State House!
