Now I didn't click the link because I already had the video but I also doubt that it was a site spreading viruses. I might be wrong, but I assume that you simply hit the wrong download button which caused you to download something you didn't wanted.

for example here are 2 screenshots of tpb, one with adblocker and the other one without an adblocker

as you can see with a adblocker it's pretty clean and it's easy to spot the download button

but this is what the same site looks like without a adblocker

there are suddenly several other fake download buttons. I am not going to test it but I am sure that they will lead to some shady bullshit that could harm your computer.

Yeah, h20, that's what happens for lots of folks - they click on the wrong thing and get directed to dialers and malicious software installations.

Thanks for providing members with easy-to-follow instructions on what to avoid!

I am copying below the info I posted on another topic since this new topic is now the more appropriate:

For video editing I prefer Windows Movie Maker 6.0 over the newer Windows Live Movie Maker. The latter removed the ability to display and edit on a timeline which I find an easier way to do it that what the latest program does.

Actually I use some other freeware video editors that I like better though:
1. Xmedia Recode - nice for changing the formats, resolution, etc.
2. VSDC Free Video Editor - has the ability to merge in an additional sound track. Most others do not. Can zoom in within a user defined "workarea" of the video. Can adjust the brightness in a "workarea". Documentation is not very helpful but look for some YouTube videos that users have posted on how to use it.
3. Video to Video Converter - nice for separating multiple clips from a video into files

I mainly use VSDC now but it is a bit difficult at times to figure out how to do what you want with VSDC. I think Windows Movie Maker 6.0 is the easiest video editor to use. However on my computer the input video must be .wmv or .gif format and it will not write .mp4 format which is what my TV likes to play. So I have to use Freemake to convert other video formats to .wmv for the program to read or to convert its output .wmv file format to mp4.

The Microsoft download for their Movie Maker programs is:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... r-download
They list the 6.0 version as "for Vista" but I use it on Win7. I see now that the Microsoft site only discusses the 6.0 version and does not have a download for it. But a Google search shows other sites that do have downloads for it.

Freemake Video converter is freeware which converts almost any video or audio format to another format including pulling the audio from a video and saving it as an audio file.

A Google search will give you links to downloads for all the above. Many download sites will also try to download some adware programs so during the download setup process watch for any optional boxes that you can uncheck to not get the adware.

Most of the video editors can adjust for poor lighting. Look for the adjustment of "Video Brightness". You also might want to adjust the contrast after you adjust the brightness. If the lighting is very dark, the best you will be able to do is to get a bright but washed out version. Another fellow remarked on the other post that via the editors you can also change the gamma or exposure of the video to modify "too dark" or "too light" problems.

Excellent new topic Brad and great first contribution to it, dh92014.

It seems most folks here may be on WinDoze systems :mrgreen: so by sheer numbers, most of the posts may likely refer to that platform.

As a Mac guy I have a quick 'n easy photo resizing tip for Mac OSX users.

The PREVIEW app included with the installed operating system ( ergo free ! ) has multiple quick tools for resizing, flipping, rotating, cropping and color management. It will open and save in most common formats, keeps the copy on your hard drive so it may be included directly into a post as an attachment, OR could be uploaded to a hosting site. It will also import directly from a scanner, a screenshot (from your screen or a website image) or other editing programs.

Just an easy FYI if you are not into dedicated editing software.

For Windoze computer users the Irfanview program is freeware that can do almost anything you want to do with photo files including resizing, rotating, cropping, color management, making slide shows, etc. The home page for the program is http://www.irfanview.com/

I have used this for many years and it is my goto program for making any changes to photo files.

Thanks, yes, I already have it and didn't even know! I opened it up. The new problem: when I load my video into Windows Movie Maker, I hear the sound but there is no visual, just a black screen with sound. What is that about? My video is an AVI file, do I need to change file format?


According to a little research, Movie Maker 2.1 (the version included with XP) does support .AVI files. However, AVI’s may be encoded using many different Codecs. According this Microsoft page: “Note The MPEG2 format has several codecs that are not supported by Windows Movie Maker. Even if you have downloaded and installed these codecs on your computer, files in the MPEG2 format may not work in Windows Movie Maker or may cause other problems.”

It sounds like MM has no problem with the audio codec of your video, but may be incompatible with the video codec. Hence, there being no image.

Mediainfo, is a handy, free tool that will allow you to see exactly what codecs are used by your video files, along with other info about them, such as frame and bit rates. You can down load the program here:

https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo

You could try converting your file into another format, but I think your best bet would be to find an alternative to Windows Movie Maker, as Kurious suggested. There are many very good alternatives. Or follow Brad’s advice and ask him how NOT to install a hacked version of AVS Video Editor. In the past I have “followed the path to darkness” and although it has been a while since I used that particular program, I remember it being fairly simple to use and capable.

I successfully downloaded and used VSDC Free Video Editor. I think I downloaded it from the following webpage: http://www.videosoftdev.com/free-video-editor

But it can be downloaded from other links as well.

I'm a Windows XP user and a lot of video editors didn't work on my system. I didn't have any problems with VSDC Free Video Editor. VSDC has a nice slow motion feature. I'm still exploring its other features/effects.

REQUEST:

cfnmdude and I have been exchanging PMs on where to find HD quality videos of mainstream movies on the Internet. The specific video segment was a CFNM scene from Porky's Revenge, which can be seen in this post:

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=67&start=150

Of note - I was able to find a CFNM video segment from the 1981 Mel Brooks movie The History of the World Part I (same post) but it took me about 30 minutes to find it.

What I do know:

1. Bing search engine - Bing has the ability to do Internet searches wherein only videos are identified (I recommend turning off SafeSearch, which prevents adult content - top right corner gear icon takes you to Settings). You can then search the Internet and it will provide search results for all videos, include YouTube, Xhamster, Vimeo, Dailymotion, etc). You can then download the video in your Firefox browser using the Video DownloadHelper app, which is a free install. I was able to download to my hard drive the entire HD segment of the History of World P1 in Mp4 1280 X 544 format.

2. Netflix has various mainstream videos, but you cannot save any streaming on Netflix to your hard drive (I've attempted it using various tutorials on the web, but they simply don't work).



Request -

Does anyone know of any search techniques or sites that offer the ability to access older videos that can be streamed, or even better, downloaded? More specifically, if those video segments can be procured in HD, it allows for great vidcaps, and, greater reason to upload the HD video segments to a file sharing host.

If you can offer suggestions, please do!!

I have had "good enough for me" success in copying streaming videos from Hulu.com. The process I used should work on any streaming video you can play on your computer. I use freeware Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) from https://obsproject.com/forum/

The program's primary purpose is to broadcast video but it also has a video capture capability. In order to use that you must start the video capture then start the video playing and let both run until the video is finished. I got pretty good captures of the video with only a few places that the video appeared to have dropped some frames so it was stuck for about one second. But the audio continued in sync so for my use that was not a significant problem. The process needs a lot of resources so it is best to use as fast a computer as possible and close any background programs, such as daily virus scans, backup programs, etc, that may use CPU power or memory.

The settings are dependent some on your computer. My computer's screen resolution was set to 1366 x 768 (1.75), so I used that for OBS and changed the OBS downscaling to "none" as that seemed to use less CPU power and create a better result.

Some computers have audio software that does not allow a program to directly capture the streaming audio. Those that do have the ability for software to capture the streaming audio call that option something like "stereo mix". Be sure to set the audio source to that so it is not recording sound from the speakers. If your computer does not have that option I have seen a "work around" way to do that but it is complicated and I have never tried it. It is probably better to just use a different computer.
