  Bit Rates
Posted by: CJB666 - 10-01-2017, 09:56 PM - Forum: General Chat - Replies (14)

The old RA.cc had a rule of only 128kbps files being allowed.

However get_iplayer is now able to download at 320kbps from the new DASH servers. And even FLAC is available from some Beeb streams.

Can these rates and formats be accommodated here?

Any chance of resurrecting Radio Arcive Proboards?


And is Misk still around?

Hi there again. I don't bother to post this question among the larger/more established trackers, because essentially all allow it, but I wanted to make sure my use of seedboxes is OK. On a site like this with tiny files, I doubt I will be using these machines to gobble huge amounts of ratio. However, I am a person constantly embarrassed by a set of computers inherited from friends a decade ago, with constantly rotating and replacing hard drives, and frequently I find it simply convenient to download to a stable computer. It is sometimes convenievnt to keep files on these systems while I multi-format various drives or re-arrange which computer is to be my torrent machine.

I rent two in europe, and both are dedicated IP (i.e. I don't share a 'slice' with anyone, they are the same as if they were just another computer of my own but with an actually decent upload speed.) There would never be any IP conflicts, just a notice that I apparently use computers on several continents.

While this would be helpful, and most trackers find no objection, I wanted to be sure:

1. Can I use these dedicated IP machines as simple torrent devices? Would be the same as if I downloaded at my mum's house, just another unique IP belonging to me. Some stricter trackers allow this if one "registers" the IP of one's seedboxes by sending a note to staff, which is fine and an easy policy for us to adhere to.

2. Are we allowed to sign in via these dedicated IP machines? This is much more iffy in the tracker worlds....some insist that one only logs in via their home system (and can then download to their seedbox), while others allow sign-in from seedbox as a matter of course or by permission. For instance, if I visit my friends in Boston but want to download something to impress them with how culturally advanced and British I am, the easiest way to access the site/tracker (besides the questionable practice of logging in from their house) is to use a simple web/ssh tunnel to my seedbox, so all my web traffic goes through that machine and also downloads to that machine, allowing me to download via FTP or some such later. Again, with a dedicated IP, there should be no question of multiple or conflicting IPs as in a cheaper shared seedbox "slice." A not precisely frequently occurrence, but for someone who travels a lot like me, this is an important question to avoid becoming banned. It is possible to route all traffic back to my home and pretend I am logging in/downloading from there, but frankly it is much, much harder to set up correctly Wink

It's early and sorry if I'm not being perfectly precise. Will answer questions and offer alternatives I can think of if the powers that be are unsure. In any event, thanks for consideration!

  My first ever upload!
Posted by: MorgannaX - 09-14-2017, 09:34 PM - Forum: Questions & Answers - Replies (3)

I have just uploaded my first ever torrent!  I am hoping it all works well.

Have I done it successfully I wonder? Time will tell.  I have lots of Radio to share so I hope I have mastered the art of uploading  Smile

  The Way It Is
Posted by: theprisoner - 09-04-2017, 10:34 AM - Forum: Requests - Replies (5)

This was a topical late night show satirising both the weekly news and those who created and reported on it, running from around 1998-2001. Headed by the wonderful Simon Evans with support from Tracey-Ann Oberman, Dave Lamb, Chris Pavlow, Sanjeev Bhaskar and others. I've got a few of these shows which I could upload but they are not always correctly identified as to date of broadcast or series/episode id. Does anyone have any which perhaps could be merged into a decent torrent?

Don't bother reading Wikipedia about it - most of that short article was written by me.

  uploading torrents
Posted by: timv156 - 08-29-2017, 03:38 PM - Forum: Questions & Answers - Replies (23)

An avid downloader over the years, and now I feel its's time to put something back.
I have lots of old shows from the old radioarchivecc that may be of interest. How do I upload torrents please?

Well, its been a long time - but here we are again [Image: smile.png]

The success (or otherwise) of this venture depends on three things.

1. The membership getting busy and adding to the torrent collection.

2. The dedicated seeders returning and making their libraries available.


3. The establishment of a good staff team spanning both the tracker and the forum.

So please spread the word and get busy digging through your BBC Radio material and working those torrent clients!

To Kathleen, Dave, Stevie, Donleavy and the other stalwarts of radioarchive.cc - please get in touch...

A welcome back to you all,
