DOWNLOAD: Ben Folds Five Uncut DVD
« on: September 18, 2008, 11:10:22 AM »
I'm very proud to present the first of the 'theSuburbs Video Collection'!

I'm assuming you came here from the new page, but if not: To celebrate the reunion gig I've made a DVD of a VH1 Special - "Ben Folds Five Uncut" - that aired the day after TUBORM came out and features a half-hour show that they played in London... the first time they played TUBORM material in front of a live audience.

It's a region-free PAL format DVD which should play in a majority of players (see instructions below)

Download the torrent file

Yep, a torrent. I originally had it uploaded on wokeupwaytoolate, but a bug with the server means it can't handle huge files! I will look to resolve it and get a regular download working ASAP.

If you've not come across them before, an ISO file is basically a handy way to store an entire disc as one file. These can be either burned to a DVD, or just watched as they are. Here are instructions for both:

1) Burn to DVD
If you've got a DVD burner you can burn the ISO image straight to a DVD and play it back in any regular DVD player (though it must support the type of DVD your burner churns out). If you've no software already I recommend grabbing the free ImgBurn software which is super-straightforward to use. Just put a blank DVD in your burner, click "Write image file to disc", select the downloaded ISO file under 'Source' and click the big button at the bottom of the left column.

2) Just watch the ISO
There's a free player called VLC (VideoLAN) that can play ISO files like they're DVDs. Just install it, open it up, click 'File' -> 'Open Disc...', select 'DVD (menus)' at the top and type 'dvd://' and the path to the ISO file at the bottom (eg "dvd://c:\Ben Folds\Video\bffuncut.iso"). Press 'OK' and the DVD should start playing.

Hopefully that'll help anyone who needs help. If not just post below and either I or someone else will see what we can do.

Enjoy!

seeds are users who have the entire file (100%)
peers are users who do not have the entire file.

the more seeds the faster it goes. but since this just started up, pretty much everyone is a peer.

I appreciate that it's going to be a bit slow for you guys right now. My original plan was to put it on wokeup but there's a bug with the server which means it can't handle files over 2GB.

I'm still looking to get it hosted, and I've got my settings here to serve the file as fast as my net connection can handle, so thanks for being patient!

I have 0.4% now! I think my internet is just shit (our landline has completely died so how I can be online at all I don't know!) So I will get it eventually I'm sure at least the count has gone down from 4years! Andy's a star ;D
