Hey Paulo I have another Animebytes question if you don't mind. How do I properly upload stuff that doesn't have it's own sub-entry on AB and also doesn't have it's own AniDB entry? Specifically I'm thinking of RAW specials like this: https://myanimelist.net/anime/32410/Dimension_W__W_no_Tobira_Online
I happened to download it anyway for my completionism and figures I might as well upload them to AB while I'm at it but I'm a bit lost.

The other BD Special/OVA has its own sub-category in the franchise on AB already: https://animebytes.tv/series.php?id=26553
But what's the proper way of creating another one for these short specials? With previous stuff like the Gintama OVAs or the Yowamushi Pedal Movie there was always a unique AniDB page so I could just create a new entry based on that and then request it to be linked to the main franchise, but AniDB includes specials like this in the main series so there isn't even a unique aniDB link to use for a a new entry. Does that mean stuff like that shouldn't be uploaded in the first place or am I missing something?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, I guess I'll use MPC to figure out the codec in the future. I'm using some MediaInfo program that was mentioned in the media info guide on AB right now.
Pullman May 13, 2:11 PM
yeah I had no idea how to tell what to put in that category and since media info gave me mpeg somewhere in that text I put it there. How can I tell what to put for this codec category? Everything else is easily decipherable.

And yeah I'll fix those things. Thanks for notifying me.
Pullman May 13, 12:44 PM
Oh and one more think, I don't think King's Avatar is on AB, don't they allow chinese stuff?
Pullman May 13, 12:27 PM
Ah okay so I wasn't just stupid, I don't have the rights to edit it myself yet. Good to know, I'll make sure to consult that thread next time, thanks for helping me out this time around.

Also do you think it is a problem that the Youkai Watch movie I got is split up in like 4 parts with a subtitle track for each? It's kind of a mess, but I'm thinking it's better than nothing? Idk how strict AB is with quality standards and stuff being properly encoded into one file.
Pullman May 12, 8:31 PM
I figured it would be something easy as that ^^. Thanks!

I uploaded my first torrent now:
https://animebytes.tv/torrents.php?id=41111

But the rules say I should connect it to the main series (https://animebytes.tv/series.php?id=17006#series_info) but I can't find any button saying 'add torrent' or something. How do I link my newly created torrent and the pre-existing franchise?

As for the screenshots it was really only that one 1080p entry that took a while. I'll probably use your compression method if I ever do it for another 1080p file.
Pullman May 12, 5:16 PM
Already back again ^^

I cross-seeded everyhting in my dl folder that is possible and I'm uploading screenshots to a bunch of them (1080p screenshots take me ages to upload tho, like literal ages) and now I still have two things (Youkai Watch Movie 2 and Yowamushi Pedal: Spare Bike) lying around because they are not on AB yet. So I'd like to upload them as torrents. Read through the 'how to create a torrent' guide on AB but as always they just assume I know what certain terms mean, when I don't. I'm supposed to 'copy paste my personal announcement url' but I have no idea what that even is. And since that is the very first step I'm not really making any progress. I'm sure it's something stupidly easy but please help me figure it out :>

Also it is a problem if I have no idea who actually subbed the movie?
I got this torrent back when nyaa was still alive
https://nyaa.si/view/876742

and there is no information whatsoever. But it's a working release with subs so I figured I should be able to share it on AB?
Pullman May 12, 3:02 PM
Okay thanks for that download and tutorial, I'll try it out after I type this. For now I ended up caving and downloaded MPC and just went through the video again after watching it on Zoom Player just to take the screenshots. Already uploading them while I read your message but I'll definitely use your script the next time, it sounds super easy and helpful.

And thanks for clarifying that thing about the cross-seeding rules. Since I'm not on BakaBT (yet) I won't have that issue. The old torrent I had was basiclaly dead since it was hosted on the old nyaa so it shouldn't be an issue if I use the file from that torrent to seed on AB. Good to know. The rules did say it was generally okay but I didn't really understand under what circumstances it isn't, but now it makes sense.


e: just tested your script and it works perfectly. Much obliged!

Hey I ended up finding an AB torrent without screenshots that I happened to have downloaded (https://animebytes.tv/torrents.php?id=24731&torrentid=188006#) and I want to watch it now and take screenshots so I have a few more technical questions. I tried that guide for that MPV program you linked but it isn't working. Guide says to install the program then copy paste that line to command, but that didn't work and it honestly sounds way too complicated. Anything where I have to use commands does tbh ^^. I won't even ask you to help me with this because it would probably be a waste of both our time. I don't even understand half the stuff the people in that tutorial thread talk about xD

So I wanted to ask you about that Fast Stone program you mentioned instead. I downloaded and installed it and it does seem handy already, and easy to use. But you said it saves screenshots automatically but right now it just opens them automatically and I still have to save them manually each time which is kinda annoying while watching. Am I missing something or how do I get it to automatically save them as png files to a folder of my choosing?
Thanks in advance!


Oh and also I got that torrent directly from the sub group long before nyaa went down, but I have to download it on AB to upload screenshots. When I downloaded the AB torrent it directly started seeding the old one because it is the same file and I'm not sure if that's illegal/flals under ratio cheating or if that's legitimate. Do I need to actually download the files from AB or is it okay to just download the torrent and connect it to the existing one for seeding only?
Pullman May 10, 6:07 PM
Thanks, will do.
Pullman May 10, 5:20 PM
You're right I'm just too stupid for the AB interface yet. I can definitely see screenshots now :>
And yeah I know about having to download before you upload screenshots.
Thanks for the patience, I feel like a made a lot of progress today familiarizing myself with AB ^^.
