I’m going to need some help from other MUBI users regarding the World Cup. This thread will be where I will post whenever I need some help. Please also post here if you think you can offer help so I know who to contact.
The main thing I’m going to need help with is getting films uploaded so that everyone can watch them. I would like to get streaming video links available for all of the films if possible. I need people to either find current streaming video sources for the films as I announce them, or else I need people to personally offer to upload some to YouTube or Vimeo or other such sites that everyone can access. Direct download or Bittorrent links are even better because the quality is usually better, but not everyone is comfortable using those so I’d like to have streaming videos available as well.
DO NOT POST THE LINKS TO THE VIDEOS HERE. If you have any links you can PM me the link. I will post the links to a separate blog off MUBI. If you want access to the blog, you will also have to PM me a requst.
Please use this thread to coordinate who will be offering to upload different films so that two people aren’t working on the same film at once.
I may also need some help occasionally posting matches or ending the matches. Let me know if you would like to ever help with that.
I volunteer to help in whatever capacity necessary.
Thank you Jerry.
same here, Riss.
I have access to some of the special torrent sites that could hold some films, so I will keep my eyes peeled if I can help with this.
I should hopefully be able to provide streaming youtube links for any of my submissions which end up making the final list.
I can help up some films onto my YT channel !!
This is all sounding good. Thanks folks.
If someone could upload Lust for Gold for me I’d be very thankful. I’m kind of useless with computers…
Risselada’s blog – shoot him your email if you’re not aleady there – links you to all the films provided from now on. Lust for Gold is up there already.
@LILY : It has been taken care of – links to the film have been posted on the blog . It’s now available through torrents and direct download and it’s on rapidshare as well . So, no worries .
Oh, cool! Thank you. I didn’t know we were allowed to provide download links (I thought everything would have to be available via streaming). That makes things a lot easier! :)
^ stavrogin….is it on youtube? experience of past cups has proven that a film not being on youtube dramatically affects voter participation – if we can get it on youtube, that’ll be a big plus. (though if lily had chosen stone wedding it wouldn’t be a problem as it’s already up cough cough)
@Lily : Ah , you are :) It would have been terribly inconvenient for everyone to upload each film themselves .
@twodeadmagpies: No, it’s not on Youtube . It’s on filefactory , torrentz.eu & rapidshare – as far as I’m aware of .
I thought everything would have to be available via streaming
According to Risselada’s stated rules, it is. I just tried three of the download links and my security software went berserk. At least I received some porn pop-ups.
I have uploaded Lust for Gold to youtube and sent riss the link
Who is this internet goddess and what shall we call her? “Meg” doesn’t suffice.
we await jerry’s onions.
meg! ♥ you’re going to get lots of new friends.
oops. triple post. i love meg lots.
:):) tks Jerry
I converted it from .avi to .flv file for uploading expediency and fear some quality may have been lost. I am new at this and still fine tuning my celestial skills. I have asked riss for guidance as to the best uploader accelerator but I think the lazy sod must be still asleep. He will find at least five messages from me and no doubt a stack from others when he staggers back to his computer.

Onions make you cry. I only want you to pull out your hair.
I get wildly excited (time to re-assess?) about technological achievements so tis a selfish pursuit but new friends …yea!
Can someone PM me the link to the blog? I can’t seem to locate it now, though if it’s the same one from the DC I should still have permission to view it.
I think you have to PM Riss for it … I think
Megan the Holy Writter of YouTube
haha – my youtube moniker is corrinthe which is kind of goddessy
I found those links from FileFactory last night and put them on the blog without actually looking at them. I tried to download them over night. One set you have to be a premium user to download. The other direct download isn’t hardsubbed. I haven’t looked at the BitTorrent yet. But the wonderful meg has uploaded the film to YouTube and now it’s available!
Thank you so much Meg!! :D
Your upload looks great Meg. We all are glad about your enthusiasm and work. THANKS!!!
