View Full Version : My videos from opening ceremonies

I just finished uploading my videos from yesterday's game. The zip file contains the 3 opening montage videos and the national anthem including the flyover at the end. Our seats were in section 105 so the sound and video quality turned out great. I'll probably upload these to youtube as well but for any of you who want the original files, here they are. The file is almost 500 MB so could take awhile to download. Hope you all like them and thanks to my brother who took all of this video while I took pictures. Here's the download link.

No problem. I'm trying to upload the videos to youtube but they have a 100MB limit so can only upload the We Are the Champions intro and the National Anthem with Flyover because the other 2 are 200 MB. Does anyone know how to shrink or resample videos to make them smaller?

Strange, I just got the "blocked" message now. Maybe it's because someone else is downloading it now. I hope I don't need to upload it again because it takes forever.

I downloaded it and it worked fine. I had to extract it win WINRAR but it was fine. Very god video by the way. Besides the occasional glimpse of the back of someones head and a persons hand with a camera, it was great. Best Ive seen so far and glad it was a good time. Thanks again!!

They worked fine for me. I had to extract them from zipped files.

Thanks for posting your video. It felt like I was at the park watching it again.

Thanks, glad you liked them. Maybe we can get someone from around here to host these videos so we don't have to use yousendit. Obviously there are bandwidth limitations with some of the people not being able to download them. Keep trying though I'm sure it will work.

Worked fine for me, and they are awesome videos! I really like when, during the 3rd montage, towards the beginning, you can hear someone talking on a cell phone saying something like "hey, yeah, we're in section 105. So that's like home run alley for Thome." Sure enough, he was right.

Got a "server too busy" error message. Golly gee, does that mean there are actual White Sox fans?

SOecks...thanks for posting, but I am getting the following error when following your link...

File Transfer: Unavailable
Unfortunately, the link you have clicked is not available.

The file has most likely exceeded its allotted bandwidth or has been removed by the original sender or a recipient.

Any ideas?

My problems seem to be the result of the corporate firewall. I'll try from home later.

Oh well, I will see the videos at the park tomorrow anyway....

SOecks, if you can send the videos to me somehow i could host them from my university account. Im pretty sure it would able to withstand the high traffic.

can anyone here set up a torrent of this?

it would download faster and wouldn't be reliant on one person's bandwith

Thanks, but the only way I know how to transfer large files like this is yousendit. The link will be active for 7 days so maybe you could download it from there and host it.

I've never created a torrent but will try it now. I'll be back shortly with an update. Then maybe some of you guys can try to search for it so we can get more people seeding it.

SOecks

Okay, I just created the torrent and it should be available for download now. Please start downloading so we can get some seeders. The name of the torrent is "White Sox-2006 Opening Day Videos".

Sorry, new to this. I just uploaded the torrent to www.torrentspy.com. I uncapped my upload bandwidth until we can get more seeders so hopefully we can get this going. Would be cool if we could do this all year to share pics and videos of the White Sox.

To those of you who are new to this, download a program called BitComet. This is the program that will download torrent files. When you go to a torrent site like torrentspy and click on a torrent you want, BitComet will then open up and start downloading your file.

Actually, µTorrent (http://www.utorrent.com) is far superior to BitComet.

I just connected, but it's not downloading yet...

Actually Azureus is superior to either of those.

I'm getting an error now. Did I not do something right? Here's the error...
Error: Can not resolve host address. in Tracker: udp://tracker.bitcomet.net:8080/announce

I used to use Azureus but got errors constantly and always poor health on the transfers. When I found Bitcomet everything worked perfectly. I also like the integrated browsers and how it has all the torrent sites in the program for easy access.

I got the same thing....The transfer health is pretty low, maybe thats it?

Where exactly is the file? I already have Bit Comet

SOecks
04-03-2006, 06:44 PM
I used BitComet to create the torrent for the zip file. I then went to torrentspy and uploaded the torrent file. Am I missing something here? Health should be low I figure because I'm the only one seeding right now.

Nvm, found it.

How long will it take before its starts to transfer data?

SOecks
04-03-2006, 07:03 PM
Not sure. It's been saying "connecting" for a little bit now but doesn't seem to start transferring for some reason. Looks like 2 people are trying to connect now though. I must be missing something.

Could somebody please upload the clip to www.megaupload.com (http://www.megaupload.com) or www.sendspace.com (http://www.sendspace.com)? YouSendIt and Rapidshare usually don't last long.

Just remember with this torrent thing, please don't close it out as soon as you get it all. Keep the torrent open to help others.

Hey everyone who uses torrents, here is the page

We need seeders, there is none at the moment! ahhh! It might take forever to get this file lol

Well we need an initial seeder for the rest of us to connect to so that we can help seed...

If I can actually get it downloaded, as there don't appear to be any seeders right now, I will seed it for a few days. Now just give me some seeders so I can get it!

I will be happy to seed this bad boy for as long as necassary. Someone PLEASE seed this bad boy!!! If you do not know how to then send me the file and I can seed it. Sending it via instant messenger would be the best way to send it to me. My AIM name is Tempev1

Thanks!!!
