It has been a while since I have updated the site, but I have been working on some content and I should have some things to upload in the coming days, including some requests for IMAX trailers and the 2D version of Batman vs Superman trailer F4. Unfortunately, my time has been stretched a little thin lately, and my wife has decided that we should move – so that is not helping with time management.
Trailer 2 for Finding Dory is now available, and I have a lossless FLAC 5.1 .mkv as well as an AC3 5.1 .mp4. They can be found at the Finding Dory page.
Thank you for visiting this site. I launched this site back in July (the 4 month anniversary is today!) and I have received a response that exceeded my expectations. There are people who come to this site whom I now communicate with on a near daily basis. People come here from all over the world to share their love of film, technology, audio, etc. I have learned a lot over the past four months and I am sure the next 4 months will be just as exciting.
I want to give you a bit of information as to where things stand in terms of the current infrastructure. Thedigitaltheater.com is currently on a shared hosting platform that has a 20GB storage allocation, and unlimited bandwidth (the amount of data visitors can download). That 20GB allocation is 97% full. The 20GB consists primarily of .mp4 files with AC3 audio. When I started this site, that was my focus since one of my frustrations was being able to obtain trailers or demo files that would play on the PS3. I am do not want to move away from that.

Your thoughts betray you, father. I feel the good in you…the
There is no conflict.
Well, I feel conflicted at the moment. I think that the Japanese International version of The Force Awakens trailer is really cool, but the best that we have is a low bit rate – 126 kbps, 2 channel audio version that is intended for internet streaming. I made this site because I was tired of such things and I felt that there should be a better way of presenting trailers. On one hand, the Japanese trailer is really cool – perhaps better than the domestic version. But on the other, the quality is truly lacking.
So, what should I do with this trailer? Several have asked if I will be getting it. I did have a version labeled as “International” which is identical to the domestic, except for the different date at the end. That has provided some confusion, to which I feel bad about. That was an international version, but for the UK, not Japan. I tried to “enhance” the 2 channel audio but there is only so much that can be done from a 2 channel source. I certainly could not create anything that sounded better than a Pro-Logic II processor could provide on the fly. So this is my conflict. Do I provide what I feel is sub-standard, or should I just pass on this trailer – saying that it currently does not match the standard of quality that I intend to promote. Does providing this trailer enhance or degrade the site?
This is what I will do. Recognizing that I did have a trailer listed as “international” (it is now “alt”), that there are those who would likely be interested in downloading the trailer instead of streaming it, and since it contains some really cool shots from the film, I am going to add it. I really wish I could provide a better option. It can be downloaded from The Force Awakens page.
Trailer 2 for Daddy’s Home is now available. It can be found at the Daddy’s Home page. I think I prefer trailer 1, but this has some laughs as well. Daddy’s Home opens December 25th.
I also updated the Spectre page to include the trailers for all the Daniel Craig Bond films in 5.1 audio. If you are having a Bond-a-thon before the release of Spectre you may want to pick those up.
To follow up on the big event from last week, the release of The Force Awakens Trailer 3, it appears that it will not be in theaters again this week. The trailer listing from deluxe includes Joy Trailer E, Don Verdean Trailer 1, and The Night Before Trailer 4 (which we will likely have soon). There is still no sign of The Force Awakens Trailer 3 coming to theaters. I will keep an eye out to see if it is on schedule for next week in time for Spectre. I know a lot of people are hoping to see it in IMAX when they go see Spectre. And that may provide a more dynamic mix for us as well. Here’s hoping.
I did some further testing, and did not have any disconnected/terminated downloads. If you experience problems downloading, please leave a comment and I will investigate further. Sorry for the inconvenience.
