It seems like a long time since I had a new trailer to post, and a lot has happened. The first trailer for Zootopia has been added with an .mp4 featuring AC3 5.1 audio, and an .mkv with lossless PCM 5.1. I remember looking at the teaser, and not being overly interested in this movie, however, this trailer is hilarious. Very well done. They can be found at the Zootopia page.
I am also patiently waiting for Captain America: Civil War to be made available. The distributor released a French 5.1 earlier today, but the English folder still has “0 assets”. I will have it up as soon as I can.
In other news, I have been looking at the transcoding process, and I have made some adjustments. Zootopia is the first. The file size is a bit smaller, and the bitrates are also lower than some of the more recent files. However, I think the result is even better. Feedback is appreciated as I want to present the best quality but keeping file sizes reasonable. It is tempting to go all out when working with 3GB source files.
The migration of some files has begun. The .mkv for Zootopia is located at the new file transfer service: WeTransfer. I hope that it works well for you. You may also notice that the files found on this site have a bit of a different naming convention, that has abbreviated titles. There is a good reason for that. On Sunday I was sent a take down notice from Mega regarding the trailers for Mockingjay Part 2. I did a re-encode that I uploaded on Saturday. So, it appears that the file was likely identified as a pirated copy of the movie, released the day before. To avoid such things in the future, I will avoid spelling out the full film title in the file name.
And a big thank you to those of you who have made donations to help with the cost of the file transfers. Also, I have received some good suggestions – thanks for those as well.
Still no Captain America…
