Thread: Gazillions Of Fakes?!?!

  1. #1
    Has anyone else noticed that lately there are a TON of fakes out there? I mean in the last month or two it has gotten nuts. Every one of them has the name of a file already out there, but they add on (tmd) or GOOD or DVD rip etc. And everytime you try to open the file it opens up a window with some pron bot, you know just click yes to install free pron toolbar etc. Is there anyway to filter these files out of my searches? the ones I mean are the ones that pop up and when they play they have that acquiring license BS and the movie is only a white line. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Fake files

    The only 100% way to avoid them is to prevew them as you are downloading to see if they're fake or not. Never install any software in order to see a movie you've downloaded if it tells you to, it's simply not necessary.

    To avoid the problem altogether get a client with that uses a network with less fakes - like emule. Better yet Bit Torrent has virtually zero fake files.

    And what if the first, say 15 minutes are the actual thing and then after than it goes blank... it has happened to me before.

    The true 100% way to avoid them is to not download them at all.

    And the Acquiring License prompt leads to this, right?.....


    Could contain Spyware, Trojans, Dialers, etc.??.....who knows what else?

    Posts regarding this annoyance are become more and more numerous.
    I've found that these are Windows Media files (.wmv) that are DRM protected meaning you
    need to buy a license to view them.
    They will have the extension .wmv and (TIP) will also have the Artist listed as "Unknown"
    (maybe not in ALL cases, not sure).

    You could just avoid all .wmv files or even go so far as to add this extension to
    your Search filters.

    it pisses me off how allof the fake files download much faster than the real ones.


    wouldnt it be nice if the real ones could download that fast
    Those who dont learn from the past are doomed to repeat It.
