We're not thinking of doing crap quality streaming like YouТube. We might be doing good quality streaming. Oh, and, if I'm not lazy, some really neat streaming too.


I'd probably only use the streaming feature as a preview for videos that I'm not sure of downloading. Now if this "really neat streaming" can magically get rid of random subtitles and fix wrong aspect ratios, I'm all for it. :wink:

I vote no on streaming. I don't even like LOCAL, even though I contribute to its upkeep.

I think the fact that we don't stream is one of the reasons we don't really attract the attention of copyright holders to any great degree. If we started streaming...

The fact is, even with super search, finding what you want on the org is not as easy as on the tube or such places. You have to work at it, and you have to know what you're looking for. These days I don't even really use the search function; I really only download videos as they get announced on the forums. The interface of the org is intelligently functional and not made to look like it was written by programmers who interned at PlaySkool.

Streaming will either lead us to a Bad End (TM) or help hasten our journey to it.

I'm the opposite. I prefer to use the search functions to find what I'm looking for. What I want to find isn't likely to be announced any time in the near future anyway. ;)

O man... I wish I would have been paying attention for the last few months. I just spent a bunch of "gravy" money on stuffs I didn't really need. I so could have bought less and given more here. What's the $$ situation now?

You're kidding, right? Almost every time I try to use the ewetoob search, I wind up fighting and fighting to find a video I remember having seen. In almost every one of those cases, I wind up having to remember the first video I saw and then attempt to follow the related video links I took before to get there. Even when my search terms are the exact title of the video!

Wait two weeks (or until the 'unpaid pledge' warning pops up on the main page) and then send the transaction information to the email in this thread - link. If you got a confirmation email from paypal, that contains all the info they'll need to match the donation up with your org account (Paypal transaction ID, especially).

I just hope this is the right thread (with "post ideas to improve") and that... ah, well, nvm.

I just had this idea - about alerting for videos.
You know, I have few of my favourite animes and I like some music artists. but if I want to get the AMVs with these, I have to Super Search. That's fine. But then some new title gets released, and I miss it (because it doesn't get announced. Or I miss the announcement). So I have to do SS regularly on these titles every few weeks to see if something new appeared.

Could it be possible to implement alerts on those, such as those are today on releases from editors? I think Anime and Artist categories would be enough :<

Sorry if this already has been mentioned or if it is implemented already (- be it for donators only or not) and I just missed it somewhere.

So like... I wanna donate, but I only have one of those Visa gift card type things, and I don't think PayPal excepts those...
