A clarification about the source of our Detective Conan videos

| "" Comments | No TrackBacks

Usually I don't entertain people who try to spam the site to promote their own encodes or whatever, but I got a comment in my spam filter that I felt merited attention (although the commenting engine wouldn't let me delete the link and then post the comment with edits, so my only choice was to leave it in the trap).

This person says he checked the Baaro XDCC bot and found "just TV rips with pretty low quality". Apparently he has a vision problem: apart from the "remastered" episodes, none of our episodes prior to 453 (and we have subbed many episodes prior to 453--in fact almost all our Conan subs are from that period) are DVD rips at a minimum.

Although episodes 453 and up are, in fact, TV rips, they are HDTV rips, and come from the best available sources, and are encoded to the same standards as the DVD rips. They should be higher quality than DVD rips, and they are certainly higher resolution. In all cases the raws are from as close to source as possible - the original DVDs, the original VOD streams, the original broadcast transport streams - and are never taken from publicly available encodes (unless said encodes come from our own staff, or those of our sister groups on Hoshinet).

I suspect the real reason for the comment was that the poster merely wished to pump his own raws. As, again, I could not delete part of the comment and let the remainder stand, I had to leave the comment unapproved; as there was no way to make this post make sense in a thread, I felt it necessary to create a separate post on the blog to clarify matters, in case someone else thinks we use substandard public raws on our releases.
