Spammer update

Quick update on the spammer situation. We've pretty much gotten the flow of spam accounts down to a weak trickle, but takenoko and I have been banning large swaths of Russian IPs left and right so if you're in Russia you might have to email one of the admins to unban whatever ip address you're using.

 

Also I've been pretty agressive about deleting any suspicious new account that comes in, so if I accidentally delete yours and you're not a spammer, sorry! Please make a new one and add something to your profile. I'm less likely to delete accounts with some profile information filled in.

Super Sentai Secret

Photobucket I'm not really sure what this is, but I was intrigued by the secret at the end of the list. Hard to believe the next Sentai is just around the corner. The logos are cool at least.

Edit:

Alright, I'll do the research instead of lazywebbing it.

Looks like it's a pin collection. Oddly it says secret pins, so is there going to be more than one? I thought they were just coyly hinting that it'd have the next Sentai series logo. Oh yeah, that must be the case. Deadline is December 14. Ships next March

Rereading it, there's only 37 types. Considering the 36 Sentai teams are already known, it couldn't be "secret pins". Must be an English screw up on the Japanese part.

Spammers!

So last night we were hit by a rash of spammers. Looking over the accounts, we decided to just delete all the accounts that never made a post. (4447 accounts in total). Sorry to our actual silent lurkers out there, but you'll have to reregister!

List of deleted accounts:

Streaming to your Device

So I tested out PS3 Media Server, and it's pretty good. It plays the files that TVserity couldn't, it's free, plus I like the way they structure their files better. Plus, despite its name, you can use it for various devices besides the PS3.

So check it out:

Thread

Continuing from last night's blog post, forum user kmizuno recommends using the PS3 Media Server for streaming from computer to PS3. Thanks for the suggestion!

TLDR version of previous post

Previously I was copying the files onto flash drives, sticking them in my PS3 to play the videos.

With the current setup, I'm just using the program to stream the videos using the computer's wifi to the console.

Using Tversity to stream to a PS3

So I might be a bit behind on this, but I finally bit the bullet and turned my PC into a media server. It was all pretty simple actually. Just got the software from TVersity (had a license fee of 4 bucks, pretty cheap), turned on the wifi on my pc and that was pretty much it. Turned on my PS3 and the media server was in the Video section.

Before, I was putting the files on flashdrives with FAT32 file systems on them. It was alright, but this way will save me a step. I tried a few of our releases as well as some stuff from Youtube, and it looked pretty nice (Even the SD stuff, surprisingly enough).

Unfortunately, there's still a problem with pre-2009 xvid encodes which simply won't play at all in this method.

Anyway, just thought I'd blog about it to let people that they always have options when playing back our files.
