This forum has been created so the forum members can download files. The files posted here are high bandwidth files - as a result i pay extra if abuse is caused!!

Please do not post the links you find anywhere in this members forum on other sites, forums, etc.

If anybody sees these files linked to elsewhere please advise me so i can remove them.

I may only be able to upload one or two files at a time. So please post requests in this thread.

Thanks, Craig

Please note people, do not share the direct links to downloads in this section on other sites. Last month we used 65Gb of bandwidth. :eek: :eek: This is a huge amount.

Remember you spoil it for all by hotlinking, if it continues we may have to remove some of the high bandwidth files or else upgrade our hosting package even further.

Thanks, Craig

WOW 65GB?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

People shouldn't hotlink => they should promote this site! People who want to see, hear and learn stuff about Seagal will have to become a member.

I totally agree with Craig, it's a ridiculous amount of bandwith in one month.

Question for you Craig, isn't there a way that you shield the download files? I mean that they can only be downloaded if someone is a member?

I'm almost certain of such a possibility. It would block use of hotlinks elsewhere on the net. There are numerous of sites (I just cann't think of one) which use such protection for their files (I remember one: videodetective.com with the Into the sun trailer).

I'll ask my brother in law who has some experience in these matters and let you know as soon as I know more.

Peace

Yes i blocked hotlinking before, but it caused problems for a couple of members. :( I may have to turn it back on though. :(

One question,Craig,when a person puts a link to this site on a personal site of his/hers in the links section,isn't it the same as hotlinking?

A link to this site is a sort of hotlinking, but not in the way Craig means.

If you post a direct link to download a file out of the members only section outside this website, that's the hotlinking Craig means.

I think Craig has to turn on the blocking of hotlinks again.

I know what you mean Craig and you're right, but may I upload some MP3's of Song From The Crystal Of Cave??? Because some people can not effort to buy this CD, or the CD's is not available in there country.

And I would post only the MP3's with your permission! I don't how it's is with the author rights or something :(

I don't do this for myself, but for the people who maby lost there CD or cannot buy it in there country. And if I upload the MP3's (If I got your permission) I would like that only members can download the MP3's and not the guest of Non-members, can that be done!!???

Ok, but why is then "Hoochie Koochie Man" (Sample) posted, and it was not a sample, but it was the hole song (with the same end time as on the CD Mojo Priest):indiffere. But I understand why I don't may post a few songs, and I respect that, therefore I asked it ;).

And It wouldn't do it for me, but help other people on the forum with it.

As you can see from the bitrate and can hear, the song posted is of a low quality and doesn't come close to cd-quality. So it is a sample, if people like the sample, they might be persuaded to buy the album, which might inspire mr Seagal to make more albums etc etc etc.

Ik hoop dat het een beetje duidelijk is. Trouwens, deze bestanden worden niet voor niets gepost in de members exclusive sectie van deze site.

Peace

Ja oke, dat begrijp ik ook wel en ik wil er ook niet verder meer over discusseren hoor maar the bitrate is wel 192 kbit/s en ik vind dat de kwaliteit goed is van het nummer Hoochie Koochie Man. Maar ik begrijp dat situatie hoor ;) Misschien maak ik nog wel een sample, ik kijk wel even. Bedankt in iedergeval voor je antwoord ;).

But now I'm going to make a trailer of Mercary for Justice for the fans. Thankyou for your reply Kotegashi, and you're right ;).

This issue has been brought to Craig's attention, since this is his decision. Maybe it would be best to refrain from any further discussion on this subject until his return to the forum shortly. Thanks for understanding. :)

Cool, let me know when it's finished, perhaps we can compare yours with mine. Maybe your trailer can give me some new inspiration for future trailer i'll make and perhaps mine does the same for you.

:) :D Als je iets wil doneren (zoals je trailer) dan moet je Craig een "private message" sturen en vragen hoe je het bestand bij hem kan krijgen. Het makkelijkste is het om het voor hem downloadbaar te maken vanaf een site.

Peace
