    In living color???? What is this? Download a movie--hit play--and by golly we got 60 min.+ of moving colors!!!! Is this something to do with codecs or have I just been fooled again? O.K. I give up. Is there a secret society of optical color lovers or am I going to have to put on that pointy hat and go sit in the corner again?

    Maybe your missing some codecs. Try getting the K-Lite codec pack at the main page http://doa2.host.sk

    Tips for finding verified movies:

    After about 10 megs or 10% of the total DL of the movie, use Avipreview and see if its your movie.  Click the screen of Avipreview and an Index should pop up with some info.  If the video or audio part has 0 (zero), then its a fake.

    After searching and thinking you have enough users, expand the list so you can see all the users for that file by clicking the "+" box to the left of the title and scroll down and check to see if the filenames match up to the movie your looking for and read the yellow description boxes that pop up too.  Sometimes it will say if its a fake or not.

    Look at the length of the movie.  A trick I learned awhile ago is that any movie with the length of 1:02:08 is a fake. 

    Check the file size of the movie.  Make sure its reasonable.  Sometimes the movie is split into two or three parts for easier downloading.
    Check the hashes in the verifieds.  That will usually say if a movie is out or not and will usually tell of its quality.  Always check the verifieds first before looking for a movie which will save you some time.


    The idea of verified files is so that you know they exist. The Sig2Dat hashes are just a way to help get you started on the download. You still have to search for them. Kazaa constantly searches while you are downloading for more users. Searching manually just helps speed up that process.

    There is a secret society, but you can't come in if you don't know the "special knock."--
