with the recent change the scene have gone down with moving to x264, and after reading all the
comments people have been leaving on our forums. we have decided to take the initiative to provide
you, our sole reason for existing with a more standard format when it comes to our beloved tv shows.

so as of today, we have taken extra steps to provide every release in the stable, most reliable
format of real media. real media format has been a solid codec for nearly two decades, it is widely
supported on every device known to man, and with its exceptional compression format we can provide
the same high quality shows you would expect!

we believe this change will benefit everyone and ease the pain.

to a bright future!

***** update *****

it appears a stuff up on our end just cause our releases to be purely renamed to .3gp and not
actually re-encoded. i guess this kind of stuff tends to happen on april 1st. sorry for any

***** extended update *****

ok, so people seem to be confused. shame really... tv shows come out at night time, so doing an
april fools joke before midday is pretty much impossible for us. so we did it on the night of april
1st. get over it. no files were re-encoded into real media, all you do is rename the file extension
to the correct one (.avi, .mp4, .mkv) realistically the video player shouldn't care about the file
extension and actually read the header information of the file to actually know what codec to use,
but alas.

also, to the people who said "it's april 2nd where i am" now... have a look at the time display at
the top of our page, this is the time we work off, our site is international so if you can't handle
it then i suggest you change your times to be that of est so you won't get confused next time.

long live the iron fish

working too well for me alas, it skips and jumps.

april fools jokes sure are fun, but this actually isn't so much fun. the filenames are part of the values
protected by the bittorrent hashset, which means you either need to issue new torrents tomorrow and
lose all the seeds or keep it that way forever, sending everyone who downloads something a few days
later into crazy playback issues (with file extension guided players).

oh, and just so you know, the correct file extensions for real media are:
*.rm (for any type of real media file)
*.ra (real audio, typically cooker codec)
*.rv (real video, typically g2 codecs and earlier)
*.rmv (real media video, typically real's variants of h.263 and h.264 with vendor extensions, constant
bitrate formats)
*.rmvb (real media with variable bitrate, typically real's variants of cooker, ac3, aac-2/4 muxed
with their variants of h.263 or h.264 and their vendor specific extensions)

*.3gp? is the extension set for mpeg-4 simple profile used in small embedded devices, feature phones
and the mms standard for video (audio is amr).

the use of real media formats was and is still very common in the chinese, korean and japanese scene
groups, releasing anime, music (videos) and movies (only japan and south korea, china still sticks
with opendml-avi or even the raw avs streams from hd discs)
