Dropbox

Thanks to all the people who showed interest in sharing the dropbox with us. If you guys happen to be around and are in a good situation to help seed, that'd be really useful. If not, no worries. Thanks!

Other features that you might want to check out are selective sync, since you probably don't want all three versions of the same video.

Dropbox users!

I want to try releasing files through Dropbox. If you have a Dropbox account (or want to sign up for one), send me an e-mail and I'll add you to a folder for releases. We generally keep files around for a few days to a week before archiving them, so it'd be a chance to grab our files really quickly after release. (If  you have the app on your desktop, it'll sync automatically).

It's just an experiment that I'm trying. It may not work out or I might have to change a few things, so please understand that. Thanks!

San Francisco meetup and other stuff

Just a reminder that if you live in the Northern California area, we're having a meetup in Japantown, San Francisco.

Friday November 11th. It's the Friday after this Friday.

If you're interested, drop a note in the thread so we can plan it out (there might not be any more plan than wandering aroudn Japantown and chatting). Or send me an e-mail just so I know how many people we're going to have.

TV-Nihon turns 14 today

October 22nd, 2016. 14 years, almost 15!

What can I say at this point but thank you to all the T-N staff. This includes, but aren't limited to, all the people past and present who've helped us work on subtitling the shows, who've helped distribute them, who create our splash pictures at the start of the videos, who work on our wiki, who run our site, who participate in our chat, who host streams of our shows, who run our social media, who capture our raw footage from Japan, and probably a ton of other people that I'm just forgetting.

And of course, thank you to the fans. We appreciate all the nice things that you've said about us over the years. Thank you to the donators who help us cover the costs of running the site. Thank you to our unnoticed fans, who enjoy our shows, but don't really participate in the social aspect. Thank you to our critics for pushing us to always be better.

Looks like we made it up to 3891 releases this year. Almost 4000.

No special releases this year, unfortunately. But here's a plug for some random services that people might not know we offer:

Toku group showing stream - Zero's Friday stream, hang out in chat!
Chat  - Speaking of chat, you can always visit us and say hi in our main chat
Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter

I'm trying to set up a meet up for San Francisco in November. I always love meeting new people, so feel free to stop by and join us. Thread

Useful stuff on the wiki:
-If you want to comment on an episode, you can always look up the episode on our wiki, and on the far right, in the info box there's a link to the forum thread right there: Example: http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Garo_15
-If you ever want to double check to see if you have all the files for a series, we keep a list on the series page:
Example: http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Garo#T-N_Release_List
-We try to keep pretty good lists on the wiki too:
http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Garo_Series
http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Misc
-Trying to figure out what commercials were in the commercial pack that come with the episode? I try to keep a detailed list on the episode page:
Example: http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Kamen_Rider_Ex-Aid_01#CM
-We have a calendar of sorts. Click the date to see who was born on that day:
http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Category:October_22
-Waiting for a movie release? Check to see if it's been released on Blu-ray first before asking us to sub it:

Time: Fridays 7 PM Pacific (10 PM Eastern)

Zero's been working to improve the experience. If you haven't watched this week's episodes yet, feel free to come this Friday and hang out and watch it with others. I'm hoping to drop by to say hi and answer people's questions if they have them.

Zero is also planning to show another Rider series from the past. I don't know if there's a regular schedule for that yet, but I'll let people know when there's more info.

You can also check the thread for the latest news.

You can visit the chat channel that we're going to be using here. Stop by and say hi!

Any encoders out there?

Anyone use Avisynth who can recommend a good noise reduction filter (And recommended settings)? I really think these Deka Blu-rays will need them.

Taking applications for new QCers

QCing entails:

  • Checking over videos for timing, translation, typesetting, encoding and other mistakes.
  • Making suggestions for improving the subtitle reading experience.
  • A native level understanding of English.
  • Japanese knowledge is good, but not a requirement.
  • If skilled in other aspects of fansubbing, may be enlisted to work in other areas.

If you're interested, go to the forums and send a PM to takenoko with answers to the following questions:

1) What experience you have with fansubbing/ watching subs in general.

2) What skills/experience you can bring to this group.

3) How did you come across TV-Nihon and what got you into being a viewer?

4) What other things are you doing that may prevent you from having time to work on our subs? Do you think you will have time to make regular contributions to the shows we work on?

5) Most of this work is self paced. Are you okay with doing work on your own with minimal supervision?

Movie releases have multiple audio tracks

So a viewer recently had an issue where he was playing a movie we subbed, but got the audio commentary track instead of the normal audio track.

This is a first for me, but apparently the commentary track was the default track in this player. But the viewer was luckily able to find the audio setting which let him switch it to the other audio track.

This is useful knowledge for people who have surround sound systems. I usually encode it so that the audio track is Stereo by default, but most movie releases also come with a Surround sound setting, in case you want to take advantage of that.
