Piracy Megathread

4539  2016-10-14 by Klappa4Me

This is basically a starter/summary page for all you new and aspiring pirates. If you are looking for detailed explanations and discussions this is not the place. If however you are looking to get started sailing on the seven seas or looking to rid that annoying guy that keeps asking you the same generic questions, this is the place to start.



Best Torrent Clients (Subjective)

  1. Deluge

  2. Qbittorrent

  3. Utorrent 2.2.1 (Make sure not to use newer version/update past 2.2.1)

  4. LibreTorrent OR Flud (android) btw there is a paid version of the app which removes the ads. I'm sure you guys can find... ahem 'a better way' of getting that version.

Honourable Mentions: Transmission, Tixati, rTorrent



Best VPN Services Source 1, Source 2

  1. Private Internet Access ($40 per year)

NOTE: It is hard to access which one is truly the "best", each one have their own merits and downfalls. I should honestly dot point this list and provide you with a a few alternatives with all of them having equal emphasis... but that would just hurt my look at with my acute OCD.

I am aware that there are a LOT of other (potentially better) streaming sites. I haven't used them personally so I won't recommend them here. Feel free to leave them in the comments though.

SPECIAL MENTION: Popcorn Time - for streaming torrents directly. (tip: copy magnet link of torrent and press Ctrl+V inside popcorn time to stream), KODI + Exodus Addon (use this tutorial to set it up)

Must Have Applications (Subjective)

These are not really piracy related but hey, they are damn awesome.

  • Daum Potplayer - better than VLC (I use this theme)

  • Ccleaner - For general computer maintainence

  • Internet Download Manager - download anything that moves (e.g. youtube, soundcloud, all video streaming sites mentioned above...). This is a payed application... but I'm sure all of you are smart cookies.

  • FileBot - auto tv show renamer / subtitle downloader / sfv validator.

  • F.lux - for all the late night users. Will seem wired at first but once you adjust you will NEVER go back.

If you have any must-have apps of your own leave them in the comments.



NOTE: Lnks for a few of the sites have been intentionally not included as posting them would violate one of the subreddits rules.

If I have left anything out, feel free to tell me in the comments and I will add it on. If any of the information is wrong, I apologise and will change it as soon as I find out. That is all ENJOY!!

EDIT #1: Apparently this subreddit DOES have a FAQ section, a rather incomplete one though with very little information.

EDIT #2: A special thanks to the annonymous persons who gifted my gold. You are true heroes and made my day! And also HOLY GODS WE MADE r/all and 3000 UPVOTES AHHHHHHHH!!!!! Thank you!

EDIT #3: We're the TOP POST for the subreddit now! I never though we would make it so far, thank you all for being awesome!

1035 comments

Someone sticky this please!

hehe

Can you explain why not to use the newer utorrent versions?

EDIT: For the lazy: https://www.reddit.com/r/Piracy/comments/57ff1q/piracy_megathread/d8rm0hf

It's a cpu hog, has ads, has malware included (even a bitcoin miner for a while), and the new owner also has a decade long history of working with the RIAA and MPAA.

[deleted]

Now if you don't mind, explain why there is no mention of file lockers like uploaded.net rapidgator etc

Lifehacker.com has an article on how to remove the ads. I followed it and ads are gone.

Damn.... Wish i had this info sooner. Deleting ASAP.

Have a look in the comments. Just ctrl+F utorrent and you should be able to find that I answers that very question!

my impression was since the recommended version all updates there after added no improvements just BS, for a more in depth answer someone else will have to chime in.

Psyphon is a good vpn for android and computers.

putlocker.is down , solarmovie.sc is hands down the best website I've ever seen for streams

When putlocker is down I try using vodlocker and if that doesn't work I continue going down the list xD.

I haven't streamed anything in so long. I just can't handle the poor quality (with the exception of SOME sites).

i agree, i only stream kissanime and kisscartoon, kissanime actually has some 720p content i think.

most of the newer or popular series are 1080p. Its more rare to see something that isn't at least 720p

You can also download things from there pretty easily. Just right click on the stream.

Animetux.com has a massive list with 720 and 360 mirrors.

yeh it does.

kool, o yeah and since its html 5 it works good on my ps4's or smart tv's web browser.

solarmovie has 720p on a lot of content. I always use them when on my computer. But it lacks chromecast funtion which sucks(unless I am retarded and can't figure it out"

Animedao is doing pretty well if you block their ads and the adblocker popup. Though it's just a short click ad, nothing big if you just wanna stream once because you forgot to download something

You didn't mention rdebrid? Best thing ever. No torrenting for me when I have that.

this is more of a post for beginners. Including all that stuff would make the post waaaayyy too long and confusing.

I'm happy to keep it to myself :P

Besides its actually more simple than torrenting is. I don't have any p2p traffic on my network so I don't even need a VPN. I have nothing to hide. I do download large amounts of http download requests. But that could just be lots of youtube for all they know.

Plus the access to premium hosters. It's amazing.

How much is it per month?

I don't like how there's no subtitles, sometimes I need to listen quietly, and just prefer having them in general. You're still downloading it when streaming (just at a lower quality), so might as well just cut out the middleman.

If you use kodi/exodus or salts it will auto-download the subtitles for the video.

The quality of a stream has nothing to do with it being a stream. Streamers tend to limit data sizes to reduce buffering but if you have to speed for it you can stream HD no problem.

The quality of a stream has nothing to do with it being a stream.

How does it not have anything to do with it being a stream? That's the entire purpose behind having lower bitrates, to reduce the bandwidth needed so they can serve more people at once.

if you have to speed for it you can stream HD no problem.

I suppose you think yify is "HD" too, it says 1080p right there, so it must be, right?

How does it not have anything to do with it being a stream? That's the entire purpose behind having lower bitrates, to reduce the bandwidth needed so they can serve more people at once.

My point was simply just because it is streaming does not make it lower quality. Yes many streams are reduced in quality because of band width but it is not a function of streaming.

I suppose you think yify is "HD" too

Eat a dick, just because you have a hard time getting decent streams doesnt mean they dont exist.

You can just downlaod the subtitles though. And if you downlaod from psarips (a scence releaser) they have softcoded subs in all of their releases.

try openload.co before vodlocker. it almost always has better quality.

yify.tv primewire.ag

putlocker.was

1 seed=1 prayer

R.I.P

hehe xD

well damn it worked for me yesterday.

putlocker.is

Really? Haven't had it working for like a week now.

It was great, but I'm actually glad it went down, because it led to me finding solarmovie.sc and I've never had a more beautiful online streaming experience in my life, heck it may even be more convenient the Netflix.

Yep. Been using xmovies8.tv and it made me realise how shit putlocker.is.

Is your comment purposefully funny? I hope so, you beautiful cunt.

:)

solarmovies.sc doesn't appear to be a thing...

I meant solarmovie.sc

damnnnnnn that is good. I found solarmovies ages ago but never used it because the site didn't look good (I'm wired like that). Looks like they have really stepped up their game though DAMN!

Yeah solarmovie.sc looks nothing like thesolarmovie.ws, solarmovie.fm or solarmovie.bz but a lot like 123movies.to and seems to have the same content..

hahaha lmao. Trust levels decreasing.

Please elaborate, is 123movies.to not to be trusted? Both 123movies.to and solarmovie.sc have been working very well for me for quite a while. Solarmovie.sc just looks better to me and has no ads. The fact that it doesn't seem to have any ads actually does concern me a bit because how do they make their money? Maybe they're building a user base first before putting on ads..

no no no... they are trustable (well... as trustable as any other site sharing illegal content). I was just kidding.

Hehe okay :)

By the way, thanks for this massive, impressive post!

You're very welcome!

Huh, weird. I thought this site died a while back. looks a lot better than the version I was using before.

Do you know some website with foreign language subtitles?

I mean a website like solarmovies but with subtitles

ohhh... no unfortunately. You can always stream the show with VLC and manually add downloaded subs.

I tried it only late last night and it was down :( my favorite streaming site.

dw there are plenty of others to fill up the hole that putlocker left. Try out one of the ones in the list. I promise you won't be disappointed. But of cource only use it for legal reasons... cough cough

putlocker.ac is what I've been using the past couple weeks

Putlocker.today

123movies is god-tier as well.

This is what I use. I'm glad to see it's relevant. I was questioning if I was using the right site based off what I have been reading through this thread.

seriously, this. i was using primewire for so long, all the god damn trackers and adware i got was insane, 123 movies is fucking great, the fact that most of the movies i have streamed there have actually been in hd minus some. reccomend the site a lot,

How long has solarmovie been running for?

Yeah seriously. Watched "The other guys" two days ago and it didnt stop to buffer once and was in a great resolution.

[removed]

Solarmovie has ads.

Yesmovies is the same thing but doesn't have any ads.

good to know!

I've never used solarmovie. If I can't find something on usenet, my first go to has been openload. I'll google <title of movie/tv show [using s01e01 nomenclature]> + 720p/1080p + openload. Usually one of the first five links will get me what I want. I use downthemall to download and it maxes out my connection. Hope this helps people who can't find something.

is solarmovie.sc down? every video says it can't load...

I use flixanity.com

Fmovies.to is nice too

Agreed.

Shouldn't we learn our lesson(s) and stop recommending any version of uTorrent?

Since you mention Deluge, I wrote a plugin that lets you automatically add a default list of trackers to public torrents: https://github.com/stefantalpalaru/deluge-default-trackers

Speaking of clients, can anyone speak to Transmission being listed as "honorable mention" status? It's been my BT client of choice for years with OSX and I'm wondering if it's outdated in certain ways now?

Transmission is perfectly fine. I use it as a daemon on an always-on Banana Pro NAS.

I prefer Deluge on the desktop.

I know some recent Transmission updates have been hacked (only those from the website), but the app looks so clean on a Mac that I can't use anything else.

Plus if you're switching, someone made a plugin to migrate your torrents from uTorrent to Deluge. There might have been others, but I was on uTorrent 2.2.1 for a while until it started causing network problems, which is what prompted my switch to Deluge.

Turns out my router had a DoS protection utility that was shutting down my connection.

Well, it's been compromised twice.

I use it on Linux and it works great. Not as fully featured or nice looking as some others people recommend, but it comes preinstalled on many OSs and does everything 95% of users will ever need.

My favorite tracker bans Transmission because it apparently uploads unreliable ratio stats. That said, I use it anyway, haven't been banned for it, and have zero complaints of my own about it.

Utorrent 2.2.1 is fine. That was before they started all their shady stuff. Besides the list is subjective! All I wanted from a client is to download and seed. And for that uTorrent 2.2.1 is perfect.

I think uTorrent was a great client in it's day, but seeing as the latest versions are 'not recommended', at the very least it should not be #1 on a list recommending the "Best Torrent Clients"

fair enough. That's why I said the list is subjective. I've used all three of the top clients and in my experience bittorrent 2.2.1 was the best, for me atleast. Honestly the best torrent client that I've used is transmission on mac. It is beautiful, stable, ad free, open-source and AWESOME!

That's why I said the list is subjective.

Seeing as this may end up as a sticky/reference for others - That's why we're giving you feedback :)

I use Deluge now. It's really not much different than uTorrent except for the colour. I feel like if you're familiar with one bitTorrent client, then you'll find virtually all the other ones very familiar and easy to use after 2 minutes with them.

I've found that the scheduler plugin for Deluge does not work at all, and qB overheats my computer if I leave it on overnight. uT 2.2.1 works perfectly for me.

I appreciate that a lot of people still use it and it can be a great client. However I would also suggest you are a power user. The people who would benefit from a guide such as what OP has posted are beginners or novices and as such, don't really require a scheduler.

The people who will use a guide that tells them what the best clients to use are, are more likely to just google "uTorrent" and download the first link (regardless of what version they are told to get), or may struggle to find the correct version.

Second paragraph is very true, but I am the farthest thing from a power user. Plenty of ISPs (at least in Canada, the land that still has data caps) offer downloading between 2 AM and 8 AM that doesn't count towards your cap. Noobs will still need a scheduler in that situation if they don't want to be awake at 2 AM to start the download.

Fair enough. If a few more people complain about utorrent I'll shift it down from number 1.

I'm complaining. Utorrent 2.2.1 hasn't received any of the benefits of the newer versions of libtorrent, the library which powers pretty much all torrent clients, which is still in active development. Deluge and qbittorrent do.

ahh god dammit. Fine I'll change it. Give me a moment

You really should just remove it. uTorrent's time has passed. Those who know about it will continue using it, but new users shouldn't be.

I've left it there because I believe that it is VERY user friendly. Eventually, once another client steps up their game, I'll remove it all together.

check out qBitTorrent, its what I use and I think it's better

Sorry that was a bit rude. Thankyou for the suggestion. qBittorrent IS a very good client and that's why it is number two in the "Best Torrent Clients" section.

l0l sorry bout dat mate. hey i got a question for u though. I usually get most of my music from a youtube-to-mp3 website downloader. but let's say I want something that's not on youtube, e.g. Prince or the Beatles. Will deezloader let me download it?

Depends. If it is on Deezer (the music stream service) then yes it will. Other wise just try the other options. I would be willing to bet my household though that Prince and The Beatles will be on Deezer.

Ummm... did you even read the post lmao.

qbittorrent is my replacement to utorrent

Qbittorrent seems to download torrents about 5% faster for me than utorrent did, I'm not sure if it's just me or if qbit is actually faster. Either way, switching to qbit was a great decision

It seems like most of the community thinks this.

[deleted]

Have a look at the comments for a more detailed answer but basically just ads, bitcoinminers, adware/freeware and some other dodgy stuff that the company's been doing.

[deleted]

It's not out of nowhere. The stuff they do and the things they have tried are unacceptable. Besides, once a developer/application has shown itself to be untrustworthy, why choose to trust it again when there a plenty of viable alternatives? It's like if you go to a food stall and get food poisoning. Should you go back for more tacos?

[deleted]

fair enough. Let's say it was before they went over to the dark side. They still had light left in them at that point.

As someone who doesn't come here regularly, can you explain what's wrong with the newer version of uTorrent? Are they just packaging random shit in the program that's unnecessary and malicious?

Just wondering, why should we not use uTorrent?

But Qtorrent and Deluge both fucking suck, so why should someone stop recommending the specific veriosn of Utorrent?

What features not provided by Deluge and its plugins do you need?

Theres also r/opendirectories for some direct downloadable stuff that the guys over there find on unsecured servers and seedboxes.

EDIT: Somebody already suggested it.

I once accidentally stumbled upon an open directory of every single star wars book in existence and posted it there. It was a joyous day.

damn, I'd want that.

Late to this party but holy crap did you make a copy for yourself? And can you share?

And you didn't post it a link? C'mon!

The current link for it is dead. Sorry man!

I've stumbled upon many, many open directories of music. They are glorious

how do you stumble upon such things?

There's a way of googling for open directories, not sure if the link is in some faq on the open directory sub or what.

https://www.reddit.com/r/Piracy/comments/57ff1q/piracy_megathread/d8rltf2

hmmm...

guys rainierland is still alive and kicking. The new group claims to follow tamayo's principles, no ads and only good movies. Started at movietube.cc. when they were shut down I went to rainerland.com.

Reference

C'mon man libgen is probably the best site for books, i have always found what i was looking for through the website.

Website: http://libgen.io

Didn't know this existed. You just saved me hundreds of dollars. Wow.

Happy to help.

Hey can u tell me how to open a file i download from libgen?

download calibre if you have a computer or download prestigio if you have android.

Have you ever used the IRC method?

Libgen is hands down the largest ebook repo out there, much better than IRC. It deserves to be #1.

Really? In my experience IRC has provided generally better formatted books. How about we say that they are a tied first eh?

Sorry if i sounded cunty and obnoxious but libgen genuinely is an amazing source for books. I'll check out IRC hope it's as good or better thx anyways.

That's fine, generally people talk a little more... freely on the internet. You should see me when I'm playing against teemo (League of Legends reference).

IRC is better IMO, they seem to have new books up sooner.

As in, Internet relay chat, like freenode? What is IRC in this context?

Yes irc as in internet relay chat. But honestly to get ebooks it more of a means to a way. You're not really talking to anyone, just typing in commands for a bot to follow. Just have a look at the guide.

the website doesn't work for me, do you know if they have moved?

it works fine for me, try googling it maybe that would help

really? utorrent?

Version 2.2.1 though. I believe that version is fine.

you should specify that with an alert symbol or something otherwise someone will just download the latest version thinking that this is just an old thread not updated

it says 2.2.1 and it links to the download of the 2.2.1 version. But yeh I'll put something like that up there

not saying that what you did is wrong, for example I didn't know there was a safe version of utorrent..! just write it otherwise they may be tempted to update it

Yeh, that's fine. I edited it anyway.

The latest version of uTorrent is perfectly good once you remove all the advertising/upgrade nonsense. It's a little annoying to remove that stuff. PimpMyUtorrent removes most of it.

Still there are much safer (and better) open-source alternatives

Tell me what's unsafe about utorrent.

In my experience, utorrent has been the best. I've tried the others, they've had issues that utorrent doesn't.

Check in the comments, I've answered that question an ungodly amount of time. If you can't find your answer just pm me and I'll tell ya.

[deleted]

Why download that version and not the latest one?

Newer versions are filled with malware.

and ads, and for a period of time (before the community went ape shit) bitcoin miners. Just stay away from new utorrent. I would recommend using an open-source client (no ads, no nasty hidden surprises, no freeware)

Tixati is by far the best I've tried. Feature-rich, open source, work like a charm... And for some reason stupid private trackers ban it :/

It's sad. I looks yucky though. That's why I moved away from it.

Problem is that's a half-truth. 1) Fiddling with the Peer ID setting is laughably easy to detect tracker-side, 2) Changing your Peer ID won't really change much about your ratio or anything similar, 3) It's possible to do much the same with other clients. It's just a very visible setting in Tixati that sounds nefarious but is basically useless.

The real reason I've seen cited was that at one point Tixati reported incorrect statistics, which was then fixed. That's really all it is. Why people who run trackers still cling to the decade-old ratio-über-alles system as if it's still 2002 and we all use dialup I have no idea, but they do and everyone suffers for it...

older version is awesome.

Im out of the loop and i dont understand whats wrong with uTorrent, i use the lastest version and works fine. please update me

SearchProtect is an option that is offered when installing. You can deselect it.

The rest of that "warning" is just him bitching about being banned from uTorrent's forums.

The latest uTorrent version is actually very good. Just be sure to remove all the advertising nonsense.

Honestly though you can avoid installing those bloat by declining them during the installation.

I did say that it was subjective :P

I use utorrent why is it so hated by this sub, I recently bought my first computer don't know much about torrents or computers

Utorrent 2.2.1 (Make sure not to use newer version/update past 2.2.1)

Take a look here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Piracy/comments/57dbua/do_not_use_utorrent/

really? deluge?

See? I can say the same thing...

Nothing wrong with uTorrent, but ok...

Except that deluge doesn't have ads when you update...

Neither does uTorrent

It does

It does not.

If it does, tell me why I haven't got any ads in the past 3 years? (with updates)

Oh right, because it doesn't...

Mine did

[deleted]

Every torrent client shows your IP address, that's how it advertises you to peers. Utorrent does this too...

idk dude some guy told me to put that up in the post. I took his word for it, better safe then sorry right?

Maybe you should try to understand things before giving advice to others.

ok buddy. I'm sorry.

That's literally how torrenting works...

You might want to add this search term for using Google. It's served me well over the years and continues to find lots of content:

-inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" YOUR SEARCH HERE

Example:

-inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" The Walking Dead mkv

Also, /r/opendirectories is a good source.

EDIT: Also, wanted add this to the post in case you are a Kodi user. When you find media you are looking for, if you're running Kodi, you can use something like "Send to XBMC/Kodi" (Firefox) or "Play to Kodi" (Chrome) to send the file(s) as streaming content.

Can't believe I never knew about this. So cool! Is there any risk DL'ing from these indexes?

Other than the filesize matching up, is there anything you should look out for?

Any tips on formatting the query for shows? For example is there a reason you added the file extension?

I guess the risk is the same as downloading any other file so nothing too bad to look out for. Scan the file before you play it if you need to. Been using this query for years and never had a problem so you should be ok. Getting caught... probably less likely than torrents, etc. Again, never had a problem (touch wood).

Anything to look out for... I don't think so. A lot of the files I've come across are re-encodes so the file size can differ a lot but if you're looking for a specific release, you can use 'mkv' and the release group name in your query.

Eg:

-inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" mr.robot.s01 mkv ntb

The reason I use the file format is well, I've always kinda done that. Goes back to when I looked for ebooks and used the ePub extension. Just adds another level of searching.

Thanks! Mr Robot was actually the first show I searched for :)

Do you have a recommended program to scan files like this? Just a standard anti-virus or something more?

All I have running is Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and ESET Smart Security. If something is rogue, they'll pick it up and quarantine it. Never had a problem thus far. Of course, there's other programs available to use should you wish but those two are what I've settled on.

nice! I would put this up but I don't want the post to be too long.

Yeah it's cool, no worries. I just have a bookmark with the search term in it and use that when I need to. Handy.

As soon as an open link gets posted somewhere the owner of the site is in trouble. Happened to me.

Yeah, that's something to be aware of right enough. I keep any links I find to myself, not for the reason of being selfish obviously, just solely for the reason of not wanting to see anyone get into trouble for having an open directory with movies, etc.

For searching any ebooks or magazine, is my query right?
-inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" The Economist pdf

Yes, that should work. Remember you can still use the quotes around your search so Google HAS to find those terms. IE:

-inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" "The Economist" pdf 

Just be aware that not everything you want to look for can be found this way.

that seems really cool. But I alreadt added a website that does this for you without all the hassel! It's the "direct download" one at the bottom. xD

Ah right, I didn't know it was that search. The site was 503-ing for me at the time of posting so wasn't sure what it was. Thanks for pointing it out though.

You're welcome.

Holy cow, how did you even find out about this? What is it? This is awesome thank you. I kept getting flagged with Cox downloading Ballers, just tried it hope I'm not flagged.

Holy cow, how did you even find out about this?

http://i.imgur.com/YsbKHg1.gif

Can't remember, read something about it ages ago and have always had a bookmark for that search. Just a way of Google listing open directories.

Well it's awesome, thanks again for sharing.

You just blew my mind.

This is incredible, thanks for sharing.

You're welcome.

Is there something like this for games? I hate when some games are there but there are no seeders.

Yeah, just change the search terms to something like:

-inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" fifa iso

TorGuard VPN ($72-$138 per year depending on plan)

I guess it's worth to mention that tglifetime50 has been working for a quite a long time (50% recurring discount).

EDIT: Just checked, still working. Might want to add that to the list?

Wait whaaaaaaaaaaa... so it's like a permanent promo code?

AFAIK, yes. I've paid 15 USD for 6 months 3 times. (I may have used some other code but it said the same '50% recurring discount' when I did use it).

right I'll add that.

Is it better than PIA?

Depends who you believe and what services you need but both PIA and torGuard are US based companies and subject to US law enforcement.

Its suggested to pick a company based in another country just for and added legal layer.

Here is a review of some. http://www.safesmartliving.com/torguard-vs-private-internet-access-vs-ipvanish-vs-cyberghost/#torguard

No idea, never used PIA.

Have you used the 10Gig connection? I wonder what kinda speeds I could expect there.

I have so low speeds from my ISP that even if I did use it, I wouldn't see a difference

I subscribed just to see whats up. Right this very moment I'm getting 220Mbps down while using their 10Gig server package addon. I don't know if it's peak hours or not right now, I doubt it. I'll keep checking the speeds through tomorrow. I get these speeds with IPVanish though, for more than half the price, so I'm not exactly impressed.

Is TorGuard VPN able to get past Netflix region-blocking?

It might if you use dedicated IP, IIRC they have blog post regarding this subject.

Please include a "What to do with copyright notices"

Yeh I was considering doing something like that. Frankly I don't know much about that topic so I didn't include it. I'll research it tomorrow and update the post.

It's pretty simple, you do nothing. Ignore them, and take a short break from torrenting anything. Your ISP isn't going to do jack shit as long as you don't get hit with a bunch of notices in a row.

But the thing is, that depends on the particular ISP. I see the logic in your case though. I think I'll do a little more research before adding it to the post.

We had three letters from Verizon over a number of years, with the service in two different people's names, but using the same router. They cut off our internet, but we could still load maybe a few sites fine so we knew it was intentional. Ended up having to watch some video on proper internet use for them to turn it back on, then we got them to give us a new router with no strikes against it, saying it must have been the previous tenant.

lol

Just start using and internet download manager (v. 6.26) to skim videos off of websites such as kisscartoon/kissanime and Watch5s.to

The problem is that you generally end up with lower quality videos. If I'm going to take the time to download something, I'd much prefer to get the highest quality audio and video I can.

In the case of Anime, I'm just going to go directly to the fansub groups to download the shows.

  1. Go to starbucks with your non work laptop 2.go to the website and download an episode in 2-4 minutes or a movie in 10-15 minutes
  2. ... 4.Profit.

Yea my room mate just got one first time ever for downloading from 1337.

Ignore it, they are nothing but attempts to extort money of out court under the threat of legal action, and they know they cannot win in court.

I would recommend Soulseek for music as well. Great place to find obscure stuff.

ohhh YES. I completely forgot about soulseek. I'm not sure how I forgot seeing that I built half my damn library using it but thanks anyway.

Free VPN's are typically rubbish compared to the paid ones mentioned above. Most of them keep logs and track your data to some degree. I believe that VPN Gate is decent thoguh.

[deleted]

PIA has been a blessing for me.

too bad netflix doesn't work anymore, I really used it a lot for that

I renewed for another year nevertheless

Fair enough. Have with on the 7 seas! Arrrrr....

Some VPN's like TunnelBear I've read do not keep you hidden while using torrents, which VPNs do?

most paid ones. All of the top 3 can be used with p2p. Btw the mods removed the post, so don't refresh until you're do with it. Here is a raw paste for future reference http://pastebin.com/quMSBTzb

What about Opera VPN?

It's ok for browsing. They would def keep logs

Private Internet Access is really good. They happily let cops execute a warrant for their logs; because they don't keep logs.

Yay for PIA then!

I tried a free one a couple years back, downloaded some stuff, got comcast strikes. Switched to Private Internet Access, no more strikes.

WHY THE FUCK IS IT GONE

What's gone?

The text of the submission. It just says [removed]

yep... idk what the mods are up to. I copied it though so I can always repost it somewhere else.

Maybe somewhere outside of reddit? Mods are kinda bleh.

here is a raw paste. If someone wants to post it anywhere elese go for it. http://pastebin.com/quMSBTzb

Thank you

Or admins. This reached high on /r/all.

Hey it seems someone removed your post, could you PM it to me? Thanks.

...can you pm me the post? I knew I should have saved it :v

it says [removed]

The whole post has been removed :/

Yeh idk what's up with that... I didn't break any rules soooo.... here's a raw paste of the post http://pastebin.com/quMSBTzb (I took some precautions)

Also thank you :)

you're welcome me matey

!RemindMe 12 hours

Piracy isn't really restricted to Torrents and there are safer ways of doing it. Just saying!

True that. Can you suggest some other things to put up?

Using IRC for finding and downloading Ebooks.

Edit: link added to another post

wut?

Internet Relay Chat

ermmm... I already have that link up. I'm not really sure what you're getting at here

Oh wait crap i forgot the context of this lmao. Thanks for the suggestion but I already put that up. It's the number one option for downloading books!

Well, usenet is a lot more worry-free, since you only download. There is no sharing of files, like there is with torrents. Of course, some people do upload and you need to scout nzb-sites.

Usenet doesn't exist. Shut your damn mouth.

I've never really used usenet and am not really familiar with it so I left it out. If you can give my some information I'll gladly put it up

A bit about usenet and downloading from there in general.

It's an old guide, but still applies. Sure, you need to pay maybe 10-20 dollars per month, but that's for unlimited downloads and you never share a single byte. I've been using it for almost two decades. Never really heard about anyone being charged for downloading from usenet. Not even heard of people being charged for uploading to it either.

The speeds are always as fast as your connection. I've maxed out a 230Mb/s line with ease. Uploading is max speed too.

You don't really need a VPN with usenet, so the money you'd use for VPN, could be spent on usenet instead, although a VPN connection is nice to have.

I suddenly hate you out of jealousy. 230 download....WHAT!! I get like 1Mb/s max, and that's only when downloading of certain servers. Damn dude! Thanks for the link though, I'll put that up.

usenet+sickbeard+plex has been an absolute dream for me. It costs me $13/month. Total automation. It automatically downloads the shows I have entered into sb (which only takes about 30 secs to do) It sorts, downloads meta info and artwork. And then plex keeps track of what I've watched plus allows for all me to watch from my server literally anywhere.

It's beautiful ;( <--- me crying tears of joy.

kodi+fusion for streaming

yesssssssssss. But I don't have enough room to explain to the peeps how to do that. Well I do but I don't want this post to get too long. BTW try out exodus instead of fusion, it's better.

isn't fusion what's used to install exodus/1channel?

arghhh it is too. I was thinking of something else. LMAO haven't used KODI in a few months.

LAN Party. Or stop at a hackerspace. But I don't know of a good way to find local LAN parties. Multiplayer gamers are likely to enjoy lag free local parties.

kdx- Haxial, hotline, caraccho

Use a VM or anti virus:

Piratebox/USB

DC++

Gnutella

Deep Sea Diving, caution cp:

There's a .onion somewhere

.i2p

Projectfreenet

I mainly use DDL for my piracy needs and Realdebrid.com is my bread and butter. It can handle torrents too, allows linking files to non-realdebrid users, archives links and also files in your own storage, rarely down and it goes for €4 a month. It also has a vast number of supported premium accounts.

It is worth it for just the torrent-to-DDL converter alone.

Wait what? Could you explain what DDL means?

Direct Download.

Ah ok. I thought so. Well most in this community don't really like to pay for stuff (how would have thunk it!), so I hope you wont mind if I dont put that up. It looks pretty cool though.

I get that entirely! Just put it up there for anyone who'd be interested.

Good job with the post. Also consider opening up a Google doc so people can leave suggestions on there so you can curate it too.

That is a good idea but how would I spread the document? It's better (for now) just to update it with suggestions from the comments. Also thanks for the kind words.

Honorable mention for 4shared. It's been an excellent source of engineering codebooks and other typically-DRM'd PDF's for people who want really boring books.

I would have added it but it requires an account to download (I think) and that just puts me off.

Technically yes, but I've always "logged in" via a dummy twitter handle. No actual payment.

How do you search it?

Go to the website and mash some words into the search bar?

I just found a book I've been looking for for a long time on there. Instead of downloading it I "printed" it to pdf. That worked great.

I love 4shared. They used to have an app on the Google play store but idk what happened to it

Probably got too close to piracy or virus/adware. They aren't the most ethical of sites.

Yeah that's true

Rutracker is the beast. Russian AF, but there is so fucking lot of conent it's not even funny.

Also I'd recommend http://rutor.info/ - there is a lot of games, including old and obscure ones that are still seeded, a lot of good repacks etc. Russian AF tho

how do i use rutracker?

Three months late, but here's how you use it (and it is FABULOUS for music):

This is their main page (https://rutracker.org/forum/index.php) Open the page in google chrome so that you can translate it. You do this by right clicking and choosing "translate to English" or something like that.

You need an account to search and download torrents. So toward the top click the "register" link, agree to their site rules, and make the username/password.

Once you have you have your account, go to the very top of the page and click "tracker". That's where you do searches. Just search in the main search bar for whatever music you want. The good thing is that most post titles are in English so they're easily readable. Honestly you don't even need to translate the pages once you have your account because you just need to be able to locate the search bar. Then the results are in English.

Once you find the music you want click the link. It takes you to this type of of page. Click the magnet link or the torrent file, both of which have pictures that make them easily identifiable. Then you're good to go.

The downloads are not the fastest, but they are reliable. I don't think I've ever seen a post with 0 seeds. Hint: this word (дискография) seems to mean discography, like in the example post above. Took me awhile to figure that out, but it's hella useful.

Happy torrenting. I built a huge collection of lossless files with this site, I hope it's helpful to you too.

thank you for this

Yeh, there is an english translation for rutracker though.

e for effort, but your vpn section is terrible advice.
most vpn review sight are biased by their advertisers,
and recommending ANY vpn based in an 14-eyes country is
counter productive - like leaving your house keys under a door mat.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UKUSA_Agreement

What would you recommend then?

That's way too complicated. We just need to know what the cheapest options are for safe torrenting.

Someone in /r/VPNTorrents said two of the ones you listed don't even allow torrent traffic. https://www.reddit.com/r/VPNTorrents/comments/5lhixu/what_problems_if_any_are_there_with_these_free/dbvqkl3/

Can you remove those please?

Not all of the options provided allow p2p. I've included those options for those that require a VPN for reasons other than torrenting. E.g. accessing blocked sites.

Oh I see. If you mark them as such that would be helpful.

I'll be sure to do that once I get back home.

I don't see any quick guide/faq to picking the cheapest one for torrenting, which is what I'm interested in. The info that WhiteMilk_ linked above is too complex.

I have to mention kisscartoon.com it has every animated show or movie ever instantly, and the new Pixar movies are on there the day of release

i second this, i watched Rick and Morty the first time on that website

Thankyou for the suggestion.

It redirects to kisscartoon.me . I think you should add the .me address. In case a problem arises with the .com one.

It's pretty easy to download stuff from there too, just right click on the video. Only sidebar adds, really useful and I use it every day

'PDF-giant' for all your magazine needs.

oh ok didnt knwo about this. Will put it up.

It's not bad, better than some others I've found. But the links are all rapidgator, and I can get one an hour or so. Is there a way to bypass that?

Not that I've discovered! Would like to know also...

It is beyond me why anyone would use, or recommend a vpn that's US based.

hmmm... I'm not honetly sure the govt. can do anything that would cause you harm personally. If there are no logs being stored and nothing being tracked/monitored the company has nothing to hand over.

If there are no logs being stored and nothing being tracked/monitored the company has nothing to hand over.

Ever heard of lavabit?

Nope! What is it?

It was a privacy focused email service also based in the US (and used by snowden). One day the FBI (or someone else, can't remeber) just went in there, and asked for the data of their customers. When the owner replied that he didn't have anything (just like pia claims they don't log), they forced him to change the way everything was set up, and to start collecting the data so he could hand it over. They also put him under a gag order. He refused to do that, and overnight just completely shut down the entire service instead.

What this shows, is that the US is no longer a secure place for anything. Nobody knows whether PIA got a gag order and is being forced to collect information on their customers and to hand it over. That's why people say to NEVER use any US based service for privacy.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavabit

well then... crap. The more you know. God damn 'muricah. I'll add a note about this in the post. Thankyou.

For avoiding anti piracy any VPN works (that doesn't forward notices/leak your IP)

If you plan to commit acts of terrorism, then you might think twice about it

And to be fair.. PIA are serious privacy advocates with a long history of transparency

Not just US but all of the 5 eyes countries are suspect because they cooperate with US intelligence organizations. Or even more, since the Five Eyes is getting larger...

true.

I know this is an old comment, but wouldn't VPNs start setting up systems of warrant canaries? Have any of them done this?

Some have, but from a lawyers perspective this is not a foolproof solution. afaik they can force you to keep updating the canary too.

True. Although if you're just wanting it for torrenting copyrighted stuff it seems like an alright idea.

Because I don't give a rat's arse if the NSA knows I downloaded GoT. It's the copyright trolls that I'm securing myself from and they don't have the power to snoop on my VPN traffic at this time.

I'm a bot, bleep, bloop. Someone has linked to this thread from another place on reddit:

If you follow any of the above links, please respect the rules of reddit and don't vote in the other threads. (Info / Contact)

Ok, so I always wondered why this subreddit didn't just have a stickied megathread with a bunch of useful information a perhaps a FAQ section. I mean, it seems like every second day there is a new post asking about the best torrent client, or the best streaming site. So here is my attempt of making just that, a general page with everything I could think of!

Sent mod mail three months ago about updating the side bar. I'm under the assumption the people who are moderating this subreddit are just not wanting to do anything for it. It takes, I dunno, five minutes to update the sidebar? Especially when someone even comments on what to change/remove?

/r/opentrackersdotorg/

/r/illegaltorrents

They sent us a mod mail this morning to let us know it was gonna happen. It wasn't just RSD complaining, i got a bunch of lulzy reports about similar shit, even just on requests. /r/illegaltorrents could never really have worked, reddit doesn't have enough "fight for the user" in it, especially now. It might actually have been illegal, and reddit isn't really trying to become a piracy haven of all things. There are plenty of other, better places to go for that sort of thing anyway.


Cheers,
/u/Nickolaus

I was going to provide more user input. Considering my mod mail message went unanswered, I doubt the subreddit had any other interest from me!

I realize mod mail sometimes goes unanswered, though sometimes moderators just fix the situation and move on without replying. I've done it personally and I've seen others do it too in the past.

Looks like we're not getting stickied boys. Lulzz.

The thread has been un-removed and stickied :)

Casual pirate here, is there anything known about VPN security? Do they, (or might they) save your data?

The top three in the list do not store any logs. So you are completely safe with them.

It all depends on who is providing the service. Be sure to read their privacy policy before signing up. Most will tell you exactly what they save and for how long. You can check out /r/vpn for more info.

I made a guide for downloading music with netease not too long ago, it's all 320kbps so not low quality. Can you add it to your list. Here's a link to the post.

AHAHA that post is in my favourites. Of course I'll add it on dude, just give me a minute.

Thanks :D

Freedom Megathread*.

I pirate plenty, but I don't know many pirates who actually still buy into that idealistic "piracy is a fight against oppression" bollocks. It's just free stuff that will be free until the law gets around to dealing with it. I get free stuff rather than support the creators every time because, frankly, I don't have very rigid morals and I don't think it's that big a deal. But having to dress up your free-stuff-getting in lofty idealism suggests a strange fragility, like you need to be a good guy all the time.

calm down..sheesh..

I'm calm, bro. I just enjoy the sound of my own voice (or...text).

hehe

Nice guide,also i suggest you to add extratorrent to torrent sites section :)

And add a note that Deluge client proxy settings are not safe and leak your real IP.

I had to control-F to find extratorrent down below the comment section. It's a very useful site, a fair amount of comments and also uploader reputation so it's easy to find good downloads.

Saved because aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh

yeeeeeeeesssssssssssssssssssshhhhh

Damn, nice to have that tab still unclosed. Phew.

[removed]

What is that site used for?

Add tehparadox forum to the list. The games and softwares collection is simply unmatched.
Also add soulseek under the music section. A good amount of exclusive music here.

Everything else looks fine for now. Great work mate !

Thank you for the suggestion but for now I'm refraining from adding anything to the post unless there is an overwhelming demand from the community. This is as the post is primarily intended for beginners and is designed just as a booster to get them sailing with the rest of us on the seven seas (arrrr!!). I will add soulseek though as I have been meaning to add it ever since I made the post, thanks for reminding me!

I don't know if this is really a demand from the community, But I approve of tehparadox personally.

I've been using TehParadox for about eight years now. Never ever had a problem with it. I use Warez-BB if I can't find it here.

I added tehparadox

Thank you for the suggestion but for now I'm refraining from adding anything to the post unless there is an overwhelming demand from the community.

I understand that. But I urge you to make an exception here. I cannot stress enough on how good tehparadox is.

1) Softwares - This site is the best for softwares HANDS DOWN. There is not a single better source (both torrent and direct file hosting) out there for softwares (warez bb forum is a close 2nd), and the uploads have latest version possible

2) Games - Same thing again for games. Vast collection. Unmatched. Seriously.

There is more stuff, but I haven't used the site for that so I wouldn't comment

The only downside is that it is F2P, not P2P.

This is as the post is primarily intended for beginners and is designed just as a booster to get them sailing with the rest of us on the seven seas (arrrr!!)

It is very easy to use. Beginners will have no problem

ALRIGHT FINE!! xD

Should have a section for warez forums. For those of us who'd rather not torrent if we don't have to. Warez-bb is phenominal. Movies\TV shows up as soon as they're avaible from multiple dl hosts (some free and unlimited speeds). Cracked games as well are up there right away with great tutorials. As far as download managers go Jdownloader 2 is my go to. Can easily scoop up all the afromentined links and organize\dl them easily. Also has a handy mobile app so I can enter captchas when I'm on the go.

I really don't know much about the topic since I've never personally used it. I'll update the post when I have enough time to learn about the warez scene. Thanks for the suggestion though.

I take back my recommendation of warez-bb.org. Seems it was taken down. http://forum.dirtywarez.com/ is a good alternative.

Seems it was taken down.

It wasn't.

I know it's now back up today.

What about mp3boo.cc? I used to love this site and use it all the time for downloading entire albums but it seems to be unresponsive now :( Anyone got any news on it cause this was the best site no doubt.

It's gone, maybe for good. Downloading entire albums is easy though, just use deezloader (link above)

Damn :/ I cry deeply over the loss. RIP BTW if your interested in movie and game downloads I noticed you didn't have mydownloadtube which is still up, kicking and a great site.

My god that site looks dodgy but it seems to work. I think the others up there are a little better though, in terms of not making my google up the name check if the site is legit or not

Kinda confused on how deezloader works. The link leads me to that MEGA site, where I downloaded the app but I don't see a place to search for music on the app or the site

Ok. Extract the zip and put all the contents in a folder. Double click on the start.bat file and wait until your webbrowser pops up. Use that to search and download. DON'T CLOSE THE TERMINAL WINDOW THAT STARTS UNTIL YOU'RE FINISHED DOWNLOADING!!

Scratch that I got it!

ok

[deleted]

Ok thanks for the speedy response, I'll give it a try. I am on a macbook if that makes a difference, because it didn't even give me a zip folder to extract, just a megasync setup download

I miss mp3boo...

My other go-to is Pleer.com for downloading individual MP3s

I don't have time for individual downloads. MP3Boo let me do entire albums at the same time :( However I found a great alternative that helps me reproduce that effect almost as effectively as mp3boo

I wouldn't recommend old version of uTorrent since it might contain bugs and exploits fixed in the newer versions.

The reason why EVERYONE on the internet suggests utorrent 2.2.1 is because it is a very stable release. I'm not too sure about any exploits, but if it were a mojour issue I'm sure I would have heard about it.

That's really not how security works. No matter what software, it is bound to contain bugs. Some of those bugs can be used for malicious purposes.

Software that doesn't patch those bugs is ripe for exploitation. The fact that you haven't heard of any major issue doesn't necessarily mean that they aren't there. It is simply a matter of time.

I feel like I just got schooled. But Utorrent 2.2.1 has been whitelisted by practically all private trackers so it must be doing some things right eh?

But Utorrent 2.2.1 has been whitelisted by practically all private trackers

I wish that meant anything in terms of security. I would personally go with an open source client that is being actively maintained by at least 1 developer. I would say qBittorrent or Deluge, but I'm not quite knowledgeable of their developers or code quality.

Yeh. Each client has its own problems, I just find that (for now) Utorrent 2.2.1 has the least. Don't worry if some Russian 12yo hacks my computer I'll be sure to come crying back to you.

Don't worry if some Russian 12yo hacks my computer I'll be sure to come crying back to you.

I'll save you the trouble. Re-install and restore your backups. However that's assuming the 12yo hackers weren's sophisticated enough to exploit your hardware.

heh

It's been years and I have never seen an exploit mentioned. Newer versions of uTorrent are fucking trash spyware. Don't suggest terrible ideas in this thread.

I'm not suggesting a newer version. I'm simply not suggesting the older one.

Very good list. I think there should be an updated thread to adobe and microsoft product acquisition and activation, but as a seperate thread. Heck, if ms and adobe got their own threads, that'd be even better.

That's a good idea. I might do that...eventually. I've got exams coming and I haven't kept up with the whole adobe activation stuff. Oh and btw I have included a section for ms activation.

We don't need a new thread right now. I think we should have a discussion thread first so that the "official" thread doesn't have to go through so many changes. But y'all more experted than I am, so a preparation thread might not be necessary.

That's a good idea.

Is KMSpico still a good windows activator nowadays?

idk. That's why I didn't include it. Besides the other two get the job done so why bother with KMSpico?

I've been using KMSpico for years and it still does the job no problems. v10.1.1 is keeping my Win10 activated right now. Haven't tested the newest version yet but I assume it works just as well.

I just tried 10.1.6 on Win10 Pro and it still works !

I love the simplicity of KMSpico but might try the other options ! :)

No extratorrent?

I'll add it. You're the second person that's told me that. I completely forgot about it the first time!

I just thought maybe something was wrong with it that I didn't know. Can you tell me what's wrong with the new utorrent? I use it but I don't recall what version I'm on. (Typing this from mobile, I'll check when I get home)

Newer versions have ads, try to get you to install freeware on first install and in general uTorrent has been doing some dodgy things. It is much safer to switch to an open-source torrent client. If you don't want to move of uTorrent though I would suggest using Utorrent 2.2.1. It doesn't have ads and it was build of uTorrent such as these that made it the worlds most popular client.

Audiobookbay is a good website for audio books. Hopefully others have alternative sites they can add to the list. It's not comprehensive but new popular books are added the same day as release and most older popular books can be found on here. It seems better then other sites that don't specialize in audio books, but won't have everything

Thankyou I'll add it to the post. Can you pm a link to me please. There are a lot of different audiobokbays

audio

Did this site go down? Cant seem to connect to it anymore.

They change a lot, Google it and you should find it. I've seen the same Audiobookbay at. Cc. Com. Edu. Uk, and I think they cycle. Still the same login between them all

Would you happen to know a reliable IRC channel for audiobooks? Since it looks like theyre torrents, I dont want my ISP to ping me for torrenting again.

I don't :( between Pirate Bay and audio book bay I found a good amount. For about a year I had an audible subscription. I never looked through IRC before for anything, I'll give it a try as an additional source.

audiobooks is dead on irchighway and usenet. Cant find anything else.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the FitGirl Repacks used to have bitcoinminers (or sinilar) in them that would mine during the long unpack/installation? I think that would make them less trustworthy to go that high up on the list of 'best repackers'

Again, if I'm wrong please say so and I'll delete this comment.

I haven't heard of this. Leave your comment thogh I want to see if anyone else has heard of this. If so I'll move it down the list.

[deleted]

I'm completely lost, how do you use this?

ohhh nice. Look a lot like headphones

[removed] what the hell ? can you re-post ?

Here is a raw paste http://pastebin.com/quMSBTzb. I'll wait and see what the mods do until tomorrow and then I'll repost it somewhere else and leave a link to it on this subreddit.

Thank you!!

r/megalinks is a good place for direct downloads. No link shorteners.

Thanks! I made the mistake of refreshing and was still wanting several sites.

nice!

Yeh I put that in the post BEFORE THE MODS REMOVED IT! If you have the page open... don't refresh until you're done with the post. Here is a raw paste for future reference http://pastebin.com/quMSBTzb.

I think your Best Game Repackers section is wrong. There is a difference between the cracking group releases (reloaded, CPY, skidrow etc) and the repackers (Fitgirl etc) and they are in completely different release categories.

The latter basically steal the work of the former then repackage using high compression

Should probably have done a lot (I mean A LOT) more research before posting...

?

"> 3. Utorrent 2.2.1 (Make sure not to use newer version/update past 2.2.1)"

Nothing wrong with any newer version, sure they have ads. But those can be easily disabled in under a minute.

There are security, optimization and encryption features you'll be missing out on if you stay on an older version.

"Best Torrent Sites For General Uses (Subjective)

  1. tpb OR tpbclean - See this guide for hiding fake torrents.

  2. 1337x

  3. RARBG

Honourable Mentions: iDope, Zooqle (verified torrents), rutracker, ExtraTorrent

NOTE: It is hard to access which one is truly the "best", each one have their own merits and downfalls. I should honestly dot point this list and provide you with a a few alternatives with all of them having equal emphasis... but that would just hurt my look at with my acute OCD."

You did say each had their own downfalls and whatnot, but TPB should definitely not be on the top considering how many fake torrents there are.

Could've also added torrent search engines like torrentproject and torrentz2, but that's personal preference really.

RuTor is a good public tracker for games. (Site is in Russian, but you can just use Google translate even thou there's no need)

"Best Game Repackers Source

GOD TIER: CPY - for cracking Denuvo (well not really "cracked but...shhhhh)

  1. FitGirl Repacks

  2. CODEX

  3. RG Mechanics

Honourable Mentions: Skidrow, RG Catalyst, Install Game Guides, nosTEAM"

CPY, Codex and Skidrow are all scene, they've go nothing to do with repackers. Also, note: no scene group has a website or anything available to the general public, e.g. Social Media. (Some scene groups do have a contact email)

Install Guide Games - IGG is a Direct link game site and not a repacker.

"Windows Activation

  • Windows 10: Microsoft Toolkit v2.6 and above
  • Windows 7: Daz Loader"

Could've added KMSpico and KMSAuto, both are great.

Not saying you're list/thread is bad or anything. Pretty awesome actually, just a few bits that need to be touched up :)

Nothing wrong with any newer version, sure they have ads. But those can be easily disabled in under a minute.

Sure... But when you throw in a bitcoin miner, it'll be a bit "trickier" situation

That was in one specific build which was pulled off hours after it was released.

If you're worried about a miner then don't go downloading one specific build from a year ago which has barely any links anywhere on the internet...

For the repacker option I just added what people in the comments told me to add. I see what you mean by the tpb thing, I've been meaning to shift it into the honourable mentions for that very reason. I'll get around to it eventually. As for the activation, daz loader and ms toolkit do the job so i didnt bother with kmspico/auto

I just added what people in the comments told me to add

Heh

Anyways, was just some constructive criticism. Do with it as you please :)

thank you

Nice List.

But talk about making it too easy for unwanted eyes.

BTW, those asking for "What if I get caught" guides, there's a lot of detailed information at

http://www.slyck.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=57634

Another good automatic TV Show download tool is ShowRSS. I like it because it doesn't require any special software or setup, you just copy your RSS link into your torrent client (QBittorrent in my case) and set it to automatically download any links from the feed (you should be able to set rules based on keywords).

I also use the AMC filebot script to automatically rename and sort any downloads.

Yeh but can you get the rss feed for one show and control the quality it downloads at though?

Yep. You can select between SD and HD quality for individual shows and it still all goes through the one feed.

You can also grab specific feeds for specific shows, I'm not sure why one would do that over the personal feed, but I'm sure someone uses it.

Hey fellow reddit copyright violators, I just had my house's IP address referred to my service provider (Verizon) by the Movie Picture Association of America for illegally downloading episodes of the Blacklist (whoops! :&). My family had our internet shut down by Verizon for a good hour, and we had to watch an instructional video on piracy as well to regain connection. It doesn't seem like anything will happen, although in the video Verizon did threaten my parents (I'm 17) with a possible subpoena/court order if Verizon detects any further legal activity. Needless to say, everyone in my family is furious, I'm grounded, etc. So, here are my questions: 1. Because Verizon has detected my acts of piracy, will my IP address be more actively scrutinized? 2. What is the most foolproof method of preventing Verizon from detecting further acts of piracy? 3. Can a VPN be bypassed by a service provider such as Verizon?

Get a good VPN and you will be fine. They will able to see large amounts of traffic on your network if you download a lot but they won't be able to tell what you are downloading.

So tell me how is this post not breaking the rule in the sidebar?

"Do not ask for or link to pirated content. Your comment or post will be deleted."

Hypocrites much?

Im not directly linking to any pirated content, and neither am I asking people to send me links to pirated content. I'm not technically breaking any is the rules.

for music streaming site use VK.com

.

for music streaming AND downloading site use VK.com + MusicSig chrome extension (DL files from VK directly)

.

for music streaming AND downloading also use vk.com + Spotify Web Player + SpotiLoad Chrome extension (rips files from VK using spotify info)

I see what you are saying but Deezloader takes the cake with both downloading music AND downloading music from spotify. It's in better quality, has correct tags and I have not yet encountered a problem with it. Saying that I will add vk.com to the music streaming section. Thanks!

Yes, that too.

Deezloader is so great !!! I didn't know that

haha! I just dread the day that deezer catch on. I'm kind of surprised that it hasn't been shutdown yet. It's been around for months whereas similar things for spotify were around for just a few weeks.

How Deezloader works on Ubuntu(linux)? or does it only work on windows?

Have a look at this.

Free Options: VPN Gate , Opera Browser, Cyber Ghost, Tunnel Bear

Depends what you're using it for. Some (all?) of these don't allow torrents with their free services.

https://support.cyberghostvpn.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/562/0/my-torrents-wont-work

https://help.tunnelbear.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2419827-can-i-torrent-with-tunnelbear-

Might be OK if you need the VPN for other uses.

Yeh ok I'll state that in the post. I think VPN gate does allow p2p though.

Upvoted and saved.

Thank you very much! Now all we need to do is spam the hell out of the mods so they sticky this. hehe xD

Hey guys what is better? Kmspico or microsoft toolkit?

Toolkit.

I'm looking for a guide to making your own Scene quality encodes. Information is hard to come by.

I'm afraid I don't have that kind of information. I suggest just emailing one of the release groups. They probably won't be too helpfull but it's worth a try rigth?

Are you already into encoding and looking to improve your encodes, or are you starting from scratch?

You're right that reddit itself and the relevant subs (like this one) rarely discuss about encoding itself, but there's other forums you can benefit from.

Looking to encode my seinfeld box set, current releases out there just arent right, missing the commentary and often taken from PAL releases, i want to encode mine the best way possible with ivtc and everything.

Both Handbrake and its fork Vidcoder have a built-in IVTC filter which you can enable from the GUI.

If you're looking for something more advanced, you can use a x264 GUI like MeGUI or Staxrip, which offer avisynth support.

If you're looking for an online community for more advice/help, try videohelp and doom9. They're very active.

Don't forget Sickbeard is still around too.

Apparently it's not as good though, or as visually appealing as Sonarr

Correct. I use Sonarr for anime and Sickbeard for tv shows. But I still like it included as I think it's still being worked on.

alright I'll add it on. Give me a minute.

Thanks!

there you go

Oh crap totally forgot to add it. Hold on let me go do that lol.

What about the Top100 section on ThePirateBay? Nothing is going to make it there without being a 'skull' and trusted user.

I feel like ThePirateBay is like the Utorrent of torrent sites...

fmovies.to is also a good movie/tv show streaming site, it's really similar to solarmovie.cc

Thank you for the suggestion. I'm not goign to be adding too much to that section now unless the site is outstandingly different, and since you said it was similar to solarmovie I see no point in adding it. Thanks for the suggestion anyway though.

I'd recommend Stremio as another alternative to Popcorn. Super solid app, tested on Mac only though but there is a Windows client too.

Yeh, I've used both and found Popcorn Time a little better. Mostly the fact that you can install it on smart TV's pushes it over the line.

Here from /r/all, up voted and subbed. Great post

Thankyou! I can't seem to see the post on r/all. Damn I really wanted a screenshot of that. If you still have the tab open please take one for me, if it isn't too much of a hassel.

Word of warning with Daz Loader for Windows 7, if you have a newer motherboard you need to disable secure boot and format your hard drive as MBR not UEFI during the install process or youll have a heck of a time getting it to work without reinstalling.

what? i refreshed the page and the post is gone? what happend, mods?

edit: make reddit great again

WAIT WHAT!

I'm getting it as well. It's just [removed] now.

removed!!!!

it back!!!!

I wish I could pirate gold and karma since reddit removed this. Seriously, fuck them.

haha calm down buddy. IT'S BACK!

Yes yes lol, I see already lol. Seriously, great work!

Thanks

What the hell? Why did this post get removed?

it's back babyyyy!!

I think you should remove some of those free vpn options. A lot of them don't support P2P and a lot of piracy is all about P2P (torrenting).

Yes but not ALL of piracy is about p2p. Those are viable options for almost all other applications aprat from p2p.

Thought this post got removed???

The mods put it back up.

Ahh I see, this is very good, but I'm still hanging on to the postbin links. This is great work OP, well done!

Yeh, I'm still hanging onto that as well.

Maybe some info about the warez scene is useful? That way you prevent questions like "What is is the site of that and that group?, while they don't even have their own sites.

Can you give my a good site/post which summarises it neatly. I'll put the link to that site up.

Sure, here you go:

https://opentrackers.org/links/warez-scene/ (site by /u/cuddle-buddy, props to him!!)

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warez_scene

More info/articles can be found with a simple web search :D

1337x is better than RARBG? You must be kidding.

read the bottom of that section

What's wrong with newer versions of utorrent?

Ads and bitcoin miner last year, 2.2.1 is the latest ad-free safe version

2.2.2 is okay actually

can we mention p2p sites like https://www.warez-bb.org/ ?

errr... we've mentioned so many already I think adding more will ust make the section more confusing. This post is supposed to be for beginners who are just getting started so I wan't to keep it as simple and straight forward as possible. However if more people recommend the site I'll be sure to add it. Thank you for the suggestion.

Qbittorrent is the best thing ever. Thank you so much for doing this post, a lot of useful info :D

You're welcome

Id like to nominate qBittorrent as the best torrent downloader, it has the amazing torrent seach feature

I second this !

I'm very late but this is a stickied post, I just have one question: My PC just broke and it doesn't look like I'll be able to get a new one for a while. All I have is my Xbox One, is there a way to pirate games/DLC for consoles? I would really appreciate any help, though it's looking like this will be buried.

Sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner but my internet was down :(

As far as I am aware there is no way to pirate games for the xbox one. "It has some pretty intense anti-piracy measures, and every Xbox One game comes with encrypted DRM to help protect the interests of the developers and Microsoft."

Microsoft Toolkit is dodgy as all hell, it tries to smuggle in a metric ton of adware and some of its modules match definitions for trojans. Daz didn't do this. It incorporates Daz's work, but also includes loads of other bloat that I frankly wouldn't let near my computer.

Unless I got a junk repack of it. If nothing else, a known best link to a download location would be good.

Offical link to the Microsoft Toolkit

Daz Loader (also mentioned and linked in above) works good too. Official link to Daz Loader

Always go to https://forums.MyDigitalLife.info when looking for an activator, it is where all of the official stuff is hosted. Hashes are also providers there so you can ensure the activators validity.

Thank you! I use Daz's loader a lot for w7, it's wonderful.

Also remember to always check the MD5 of your downloaded apps, so you would know they are legit instead of malwares.

[deleted]

Well, this is why I thought a direct link to a safe source might be a good idea, genius. Because 99% of the search results for "Microsoft Toolkit" are junkware and malware.

is putlocker not a good streaming site? i know it always changes but thats one of my d/l'ing sites

Putloxker is fine.

it was fine until i got past season 1 in two different shows. invalid domain errors. now its just meh, hit or miss. i do appreciate not having to deal with pop ups. these other sites give me like 2-5 per episode

Windows Activation Windows 10: Microsoft Toolkit v2.6 and above Windows 7: Deezloader

"Windows 7: Deezloader"? I guess you mean Daz Loader/Windows Loader :)

oh crap yeh let me change that real quick lmao!

Nosteam is quite a good website to download games from (some have multiplayer) So you could add that

I have! It is in the honourable mentions section. It's down there because their website is annoying and crappy.

[removed]

[deleted]

Yeh, I didn't realise it was down. I don't feel comfrotable recommending a mirror so I just took it down. Plenty of good options left though! BTW you totally spooked me for a while.

This is great, thank you for the resources.

You're welcome. If you have any gems of your own feel free to share them.

[deleted]

So can you use this Spotify if your country is not on the list?

wait what? If spotify is not avaliable in your country you'll have to use a VPN (or perhaps a proxy, though I'm not sure that would work). I would suggest just using VPN-gate for this particular issue.

[deleted]

Zamunda.net is the only site i ever use. The best bulgarian pirating site, no spam like in tbp, but be sure to use adblock and a bulgarian proxy if youre from another country. It also has an english version not just bulgarian

Thanks for the sugegstion.

Whats the best way to illegally download videos of myself ?

Here's an idea. What you could do if go to the club and find the craziest looking girl there. Now I don't mean crazy as in crazy good lookin'. I mean control-your-entire-life crazy. Go on a date with her. Have a great time. Start seeing here. After a few weeks send her a totally...umm 'inappropriate' video. Later break up with her in the most horrible way possible. I'll leave that one up to you. If you picked a girl crazy enough, she's bound to post that video online and since you didn't give her permission to do it, that would be totally illegal. You can then download that video and KABOOM! INSTANT PIRATE!

Hahaha.

Creative!

I try my best. :D

Anyone knows a great site to watch subtitled movies? the only one I found is subsmovies.com, but it isn't very great.

im pretty sure that solar movies has subs... If you use the third option in the post, the site actually lets you filter the reults that have subs! OR you could just dl the subs and stream the video using VLC or something.

I use https://subscene.com/ for subtitles.

Yep I'll put that up actually

Sweet! I'm on mobile so I can't check it out for now. What's that about VLC Streaming??? Is that even possible?

If you can copy the video address you can stream it in VLC. Just go file-> open and it will be somewhere there. I use Daum Potplayer (which is wayyyyyyyy better) and for that you just hit ctrl+u. Anyway once you get it streaming on VLC you can just add subs that you have downloaded to it.

Holy crap, that's insane. Does it work for any video link (like youtube, twitch, etc)?

I'm not sure about twitch but it works for youtube and almost everthing else honestly. I recomend getting Internet Downlaod Manager. IDM has a little popup above any video on the page, if you click it you can download the video. What I do is click the popup and instead of confirming the download, I copy the download address and paste that into daum to stream!!

Can you search via Daum Potplayer for subtitles, like VLC can?

I think so.

Been meaning to ask this question somewhere. This seems like a pretty good place. Is there a torrent client that I can "snooze". I always forget to un-pause torrents. I wish I could just snooze them for a few hours and have them automatically un-pause. Is there any client with a feature like this?

On some of them you can specify during which time periods it should run. I would be very surprised if what you're asking exists the way you describe it.

I'm not sure honestly. You can set a seed ratio limit which will stop seeding after a certain ratio is reached. You could also set shutown and boot up times for your pc and make your torrent client launch at boot.

Is there a way to edit a file in the utorrent directory to keep it from trying to update or even looking for updates?

ummm... when it asks you to update you just click No. Updates aren't forces (not for me atleast)

I've done this consistently. Every time there's a new release it asks me again.

Have a look in the settings I'm sure there will be something there. If not google is your best friend. I'm sorry but I don't remember exactly how I set up my client

I'm not at home but if I recall correctly it notifies me of a new version of utorrent every time they update their client at startup regardless of my clicking "Don't remind me".

Don't remind me if for that particular version only. Once the next version is released it'll ask you again. I don't find it a hassel to just click no.

Add 123music to the list of music streaming services and betternet to VPN as well as cmacapps to free mac apps

123music has a bunch of problems depending on what country you're staying in so I excluded it from the post. I've never heard of betternet before but it looks interesting, I'll add it to the post. I'll add cmacapps as well. I used to use that when I had a mac.

Btw torrents don't work on Mac's since Yosemite came out. This might just be for me although I've tried on three different Macs using VPN's as well. Couchpotato doesn't work as well.

mate... it's just you. Maybe your ISP throttles/disallows p2p?

Read a few forums online and found many of the same issues being reported. I have an old Macbook that's on OS X Snow Leopard and torrents work fine on it, though.

Thank you for your time

You are very welcome my kind sir.

Cartoonhd is the best streaming site for high quality movies, you have to sign up though

ahhh yes I remember CartoonHD. I'm trying to avoid sites that you have to sign up for though. BTW if you use Terrarium TV it actaully give you streamable CartoonHD links without the need to creat an account!

Can you add a note than Deluge is great for dumping on a server as a backend and then using as a thin-client? It's more of a server torrent client because of its client-server model.

ummm... I have absolutely no idea what you said there. And besides this is just a brief guide to get you up and going. Thanks for the suggestion though... I think.

Basically I was saying that as a server, 'seedbox style' torrent client I think Deluge is generally superior.

I like the post. I think it would be cool if you mentioned something about private vs. public trackers, and mention something about the routes for iOS.

If you aren't that familiar with the options for iOS:

There is a PopcornTime App for iOS. It can be sideloaded via Impactor (or AppSync), or installed via Cydia (requires Jailbreak).

Transmission 5 is the best (and only viable) torrent client for iOS. You might be able to sideload, not sure, but you can get through Cydia.

There are tweaks that allow you to download songs from Spotify and sync them to your music library. I've never personally used this so you'll need to research.

Pandora downloader (Repo - http://harrisonapps.com/repo) is my personal favorite way to discover and download music to my phone. I'll end up downloading higher quality versions through WhatCD or something later.

Kodi for iOS can be Sideloaded or gotten through Cydia (repo needed). This brings me to my next point:

Kodi and Plex. While not directly relating to piracy, it makes dealing with a large library of magically acquired media easier. I prefer Plex because of Plex sync, ease of use and compatibility with FreeNAS, but to each their own.

Hopefully you can add some of this info to your post, keep up the good work :)

Is there a way I can pin your comment or something. Adding all that to the post will make it like 2 billion words.

Primewire.ag Best streaming site imo

I'm not sure where to put it, but you maybe should include cs.rin.ru. Their forums are very good for finding new stuff, especially patches and updates for games.

and SAVED

well thank you!

Question about uTorrent -- why just the older version? I assume because of ads and a much larger footprint in the new? Are there other reasons?

Yeh I've mentioned them in the comments here. Just control+F it. Oh and Utorrent is ropping to third on the list because some people are concerned about it.

What about seedboxes?

This is more of a thread for beginners. If I tried to add everything this post would be wayyyy to long. You can leave some suggestions down here thoguh...

No Tidal? It's FLAC and you can just make a free trial account every month. I don't watch Anime all that much, but some Anime only torrent sites might be worth adding.

Also maybe some Seedbox recommendations. I use Evo. Good speeds and a decent size for only $5.

have to you credit card though... and we all about that hoarding life. Download everything that moves!

I think I use an empty prepaid card on PayPal.

Ohh that's pretty smart of you.

Thank you so much! :')

You're very welcome. I hope it helped a little.

Are there recommendations for a router that can run a vpn instead of having it on a pc ?

Check this out.

Why should you not use a utorrent version past 2.2.1?

Have a look in the comments for a more detailed explanation but it's basically because it doesn't have ads, doesn't install freeware, if very stable and because uTorrent is doing some shady stuff right now.

Amazing work

Thank you. Hope it helped. Any suggestions on things to add are welcome.

Klappa4me is the pirate-hero we need and deserve.

Well thank you very much! I take dogecoin and paypal. Jk xD

Why no mention of KODI? On purpose?

Yes explaing how to set up Kodi and exodus and iptv stuff would take too long and this is meant predominantly for bigenners. I'll include a link to a site explaining how to do stuff with kodi though. Thankyou for the suggestion.

Just KODI with Phoenix and Exodus is quite easy and wonderful.

I left a link for kodi + exodus

Best Game Repackers Source

    FitGirl Repacks

    RG Mechanics

Honourable Mentions: Skidrow, RG Catalyst, Install Game Guides, nosTEAM

No Codex? Are you mad, man?! Not writing installer info to the registry was like the best thing that happened since windows added a GUI.

I'll add it in lol chill ur grill. I just totally forgot about it somehow. Thanks for the reminder.

Haha this is a great list anyway man. Personal preference, Tixati is great for torrenting; you don't have individual peer control, but the DHT and encryption protocols are pretty stellar.

Yeah I used Tixati for a while before I got bored at how yucky it looks.

There you are it's at the number 2 spot. Not num 1 because of how easy it is to download from fitgirl.

Soft Ether VPN is also free

VPN Gate is based of Soft Ether. Thanks for the comment anyway.

You should include Kodi I recommend joenobody on youtube as a resource guide.

Yeh I put it in the special mentions

See also /r/trackers/comments/51ay9n/frequently_asked_questions/ for a lot more detail for private trackers

ahhhh.. I'll place that into the post. Thankyou

Remove utorrent, its just not as good as any of the others, plus some sites even have it blocked.

Utorrent 2.2.1 is. I moved it down in the rankings and as far as I'm aware most private trackers have whitlisted uTorrent 2.2.1

even the old ones i don't think they are as good as tixati for example,you can even watch something as it downloads if you make it download in order, plus why use an old program when there are others that are being updated all the time.

It depends what you use them for thoguh. It doesn't bloody matter now anyway though. The mods removed the thread. If you still have it open dont refresh until you are done with it. Here is a raw paste for future reference http://pastebin.com/quMSBTzb

O_O why did they remove it, first post that wasn't shit in forever.

I have no idea! Go here for the post (in the comments hehe xD)

I've used AirVPN for a few years, no issues, and its a little cheaper than some other services. Not sure if others have used it either and can vouch for them, putting in my two cents for Deezloader as well, its fantastic! I currently use IPTorrents for most things I need, although it's a private site.

Wait are you telling me if I use spotify through by browesee with ublock orogins I don't need to pay the premium fee?

No it just means that you won't have to indure the damn ads!

Yea still. Those damn adds are why I started paying for the service. I started devolping an irrational hate for anyone named O'Reilly

HAHAHAHA. Yes it give you some premium features then. Also editing the hosts file will have the same effect for the desktop client

I've never had a problem with kissanime as for anime streaming sites.

I love it!

Surprised you didn't put in the main post, there's enough of a weeb demographic on reddit I would think

There is a LOT in the main post. IDK I don't want it to get too big. Besides both popcorn time and kodi allow you to watch anime. I might add it if people keep suggesting it though.

Same with Kisscartoon.

Someone forgot CPY ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

someone feels really stupid right now... I'll add it right away.

Any particular reason why Transmission didn't make the list for torrent clients?

The download repo is gone! You can't actually download the offical version (the one made released by the developer of transmission mac app) right now. Also compared to the other 3 it is lacking in features, which honestly is one of the reasons I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

I don't think that's accurate... You can download the Transmission Mac/Linux version from here and download the ported Windows version here

Does anyone know what happened to /r/crackstatus?

The community was bad, the mods were bad, almost everything about the subreddit was bad. The mods one day just pulled the plug. Use r/crackwatch now. It's got better mods and a better community + no shitposts.

By nature it's a grey area in terms of violating tos. A lot closer than this subreddit.

[deleted]

They shouldn't.

Thanks.

there is also r/crackwatchforkids, the live version of crackstatus's.

FYI the Transmission client for Linux only is the only torrent client that allows you to set your upload limit to 0kB/s and actually never upload anything.

Of course this means taking the honour out of piracy and turning yourself into a dirty leecher, but it is useful information for anyone on a highly asynchronous DSL connection, or people being watched for upload traffic but not download, or people with a very small upload bandwidth cap.

The mac version allows it to (or atleast it did when I had a mac)

I've been using uTorrent 3.4.9 for a long long time and haven't noticed anything bad about it. What's wrong with it?

Have a look through the comments. I've answered the question like 4 times now. Just ctrl+F utorrent and you should be able to find an explanation. If you don't just pm me and I'll tell ya.

Any options for comic books?

I'm gonna leave that up to the rest of the peeps. I don't read comics so have no idea where to download them.

Eh that CPY mention... Nobody actually cracked denuvo.

i changed it happy?

ahhh shutup. Technicalities. xD

This is the first i have heard of Tpbclean, I know it would violate rules but where can i find the exact url's to make sure i am using the proper extensions and not on a fake or wrong site?

great post btw, thanks.

I recently discovered Limetorrents.cc is that a good one or nah also whats the difference between TPB, and TPBclean, one have porn and the other doesnt? kat.how is okay to use?

I wouldn't recommed using kat proxies anymore, they just wont have the newer content. Yes your tpb and TPBclean assumption is correct (and tpbclean looks prettier). As for limetorrents idk, it seems ok but I've never used it.

No love for Tixati? :(

It's in the honourable mentions section. Tixati is awesome!

Is the fbi posting this?

shhhhh... You'll blow my cover.

Commenting for future scientific purposes

haha. You know you can save the post right?

I ugh umm Ah yeah. I mean totally. Who doesn't know that...

well it too damn late now! the mods took it down. Here's a raw post though http://pastebin.com/quMSBTzb

Transmission torrent client should really bed added IMO. Absolutely best choice for MacOS. There's a pretty good Windows version named Transmission-qt too.

It's in the honourable mentions section. If this was a macOS based thread it was deff be at number one. Oh and there is an officaial version of transmission for window now. It's not on their website yet though :(

Dumb question, does IRC work the same way it's listed in the post? The comments are 2 years old and I know tech and options can change.

Still the same.

Thank you!

i recommend reading the wiki page on IRC before using IRC to gain some deep knowledge so you dont get ass blasted

Maybe I'll just stick to lib.gen...

What did the post say? Why was it removed?

I don't know for me it is still there but it's gone for everyone else! I copied the entire post but still what the heck mods!

Hey, would it be too much trouble to PM me the post text?

Thanks, man

you're welcome. Damn man, all the hard work gone. That was like half a day to make and answer questions! Atleast I got reddit gold out of it though!

[removed]

Nice. I just clicked the thread and now it's [removed]

IT IS... WHAT THE HECK MODS!

[deleted]

Holf up lets see what the mods do first.

Sci-hub should be under books, /u/Klappa4Me

dude the mods took down the post. Don't reload until you're done with it. Here's a raw post for future reference http://pastebin.com/quMSBTzb

Damn. Why?

idk. They haven't said anything to me. At first I thought they have have been stickying it. But nope, it looks like the post is gone for good.

thankyou.

Anyone know a good VPN that works with Deezloader?

you shouldn't need one for deezloader. It's direct download. Btw mods deleted post, here is a raw paste of it http://pastebin.com/quMSBTzb

There was a specific album I wanted "The Complete Season 6 Collection" by Christina Grimmie, I've been trying to get it for months because I can't buy it in Sweden from any store or any download marketplace like iTunes/Microsoft Store/Google music but with a US VPN I managed to download it.

Only thing I wanted, fuck the music industry and their region locking. Can't even get shit legally.

well done?

Not sure if elaborate troll by the subreddit or it's been censored.

same. I hope it's a troll and i come back tomorrow and it's stickied.

What happened to this post?

got taken down. It's back now though

Best antivirus?

common sense

Ok, well played on that one, but I feel more comfortable with one.

ahhh... I have no idea. Honestly the best antivirus if a functional brain.

I would like to throw audiobookbay in here. It is by far the best site I have found for getting audio books. I find what I'm looking for about 80%-90% of the time.

It's already in there you silly goose!

Nord VPN and Mullvad should be listed. They're privacy oriented VPNs outside of the united states.

This is a great thread, been so useful! However I was wondering if you could possibly find out and add good sites for audio books? I just can't find any sites for warhammer audio books anymore

I prefer Jango for music streaming

If you haven't, give Tixati a try. It seems to be a bit under appreciated imo.

https://www.tixati.com/

I strongly recommend you add torrentproject . se to the list. It is very good.

My favorite sites to steam tv shows/movies are Stream-tv2(dot)to Mobilevids(dot)org Projectfreetv(?)

On the topic of streaming, kissanime.to is one of the best when it comes to anime, just make sure to filter out it's adblock detection.

Yeh I'm going to add that in, there is a pretty strong weeb population in this community. Thank you.

There's a large weeb population on anything that involves tech, basically.

yep

So apparently kissanime now has very malicious ads, and a lot of shows just don't work anymore. Sorry I recommended a bad site. People over at r/kissanime were recommending 9anime.to, which I'm liking so far. Sorry again about this.

oh? I used it like 4 days ago and it was fine. Just get ublock.

How about what software to use? QuickPar NFOPad QuickSFV Various Newsgroup software

What about NFO dup search sites? http://rom-news.org/ https://www.xrel.to/home.html add to the list!

etc

What about NFO dup search sites?

https://opentrackers.org/links/warez-scene/#rlsdb

I'm trying to keep this as a beginners haven. If I tried to add everything I could the thread would just be too long and confusing. But saying that, thank you for the suggestion anyway, if more people recommend it I'll be sure to put the info in the post

Awesome job man

thank you

Best Movie/TV Streaming Sites (subjective) solarmovie.sc 123movies.to watchepisodes I am aware that there are a LOT of other (potentially better) streaming sites. I haven't used them personally so I won't recommend them here. Feel free to leave them in the comments though. SPECIAL MENTION: Popcorn Time - for streaming torrents directly. (tip: copy magnet link of torrent and press Ctrl+V inside popcorn time to stream), KODI + Exodus Addon (use this tutorial to set it up)

/u/null127001 so whos the shill now when this guy is recommending the same site i shared in my post.

If they are the best out there a lot of people are going to be recommending them buddy. And that list wasn't very different when I initially posted this. It changed because people wanted solarmovies and 123movies to be up there. Watchepisodes is up there because it is a personal favourite and allows you to search for videos with subs.

My comment was for a user called null127001 hence the reason i tagged him, this guy called me a shill when i shared 123movies a while back.

oh ok

I swear by 123movies.to, One of the most amazing sites ive come across. cant believe its still up and running all this time.

What's the modified hosts file?

have a search for it on this subreddit. I'm sure you'll find someone more capable then me explaining it.

Is there a list of host files you use or a comprehensive host file which blocks most ads? I've added 12 to my AdAway and some ads on YouTube are still slipping through.

Check the hosts file i linked with the spotify thingy.

Yeah, I've actually added that one. There were still ads on YouTube.

damn. Try out the otherones and tell me how you go.

I want to know too. Why should I use it with the Spotify desktop app?

When I attempted to put Sonarr on my LinuxBox I couldn't select TPB as an option. Any workarounds?

[deleted]

Opensubtitles.org kills Subscene and is by far the best one. Then again Just use Sublight software which aggregates various places.

Sublight seems interesting, for now though I'll stick with just adding opensubs to the post.

Why no YTS mention?

New and old movies, at a compact size, and excellent quality and resolution, with a good number of seeders for all of them

I wasn't sure how trustable it was. I didn't really see it mentioned in any posts and you are the first one to tell me about it sooo... If more people recommend it I will be sure to add it though.

The original team left YTS after it got taken down. It came back up under a .AG

I take the new team with a pound of salt. But the release are as good as the original team, and the file size hasn't changed.

The same group that stole the eztv domain also runs the yts ag domain. Neither are trustable IMO. (not to mention yify himself retired long ago, there's no real yify/yts site anymore just lots of copycat sites pretending to be him)

Lots of info at TorrentFreak if you want to read up on that.

I am blaming this thread for solarmovie being so god damned slow right now.

lol

great info otherwise!

So I should stop using vuze :(

It's you're personal choice dude. Vuze is totally fine (as far am I'm aware). If you're used to it and like it I see no NEED to switch...for now. But honestly speaking I find Vuze a little clunky, any one of the top 3 work better and faster.

Honestly I feel it's clunky now as well it was just my go to will definitely try one of those 3 from now on

YAY!

Two things:
1. For books I'd recommend using IRC, specifically #bookz on Undernet.
2. For streaming, I personally use Shush.se

Yeah, IRC is the top option for books.

How does the hosts file at http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.txt

Differ from the one at http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/hosts

Or should I use https://github.com/StevenBlack/hosts/blob/master/readme.md which I just found?

I would suggest the one that is updated the most frequently. At the moment that seems to be the github one. I personally use the one that I've linked and fine that it works a treat with spotify and most other apps.

Is there any way to automate it? Like every week at Friday or something, have it update with the newest version?

It's a pain in the ass to manually copy paste it whenever I remember.

I honestly have no idea. Try asking on the github page.

Can't remember which version of utorrent and bittorrent I have installed on my system but they are quite update. I have ads blocked on both & have been using them for years. Should I really switch to an alternative. Are they really serving straight up malware and how? Surely it's just dodgy ads for sketchy shit that's wrong or is there more behind the scenes

It's just that they have done some dodgy stuff both with the client and the installer itself. I'm sure you can still use it but it's like a partner that's cheated on you. You can never quite trust them the same way again.

Hahaha good comparison. Yeah true their reputation is forever ruined thanks to dodgy practices. I only install the bare minimum essentials for any program to run. i.e no bundled toolbars speed boosters etc. What would be the best lite alternative, I might give one a try

Transmission imo is the best light alternative. If not that just use uTorrent 2.2.1. It runs like a boss!

No need to change and no they don't have malware. OP is a bit misinformed on the subject...

Can someone explain why Pirate bay isn't considered top class site anymore? Besides people claiming that lots of the torrents are infected, what else is wrong with it?

idk I put it on top anyway.

Oh you put tpb I guess i just missed it looking for the full name!

yeh i moved it off the list now. Too much dodgy stuff on the site. Still in the honourable mentions though.

I still use the latest version of uTorrent. As long as you do all the tricks to remove the advertising and upgrade nonsense it's actually the best client. I've tried the others, in my experience they've never worked as well as uTorrent.

Every client is good for their own reasons. uTorrent is NOT recommended for beginner users though because of all the fiddling required to set it up.

Kek

but is the kek of the best variety? maybe even the fabled and often sought TOP variety?

AirVPN should be on the list. I subscribed to PIA for a year. PIA was alright but AirVPN works significantly better. Also, as everyone is complaining that Netflix has blocked every server on their VPN, AirVPN still has US servers that work on Netflix and they're very fast.

Thanks!

You're welcome

Is there a way to use deez loader on android?

yes sir. Check on the subreddit

Why is Kat gone and will anything ever be as good? It was a pirates wet dream, I didn't even download that much shit because I knew if I ever needed a decent YFIY (or whatever) hd rip of a recent movie I'd be good. But now I just feel naked and scared..

Lol. Something will come up and fill up the gap eventually, it's just a matter of time. The gap will never be truly covered but for now there are still plenty of good sites left.

sci-hub.bz for fellow scientist ..

Thoughts on AirVPN? I've been using them for some months now with success, but have noticed the speed can be quite lacking. However, I have no real point of reference to know if this is a normal amount or not.

I'm not sure honestly I've never used them... BUT I haven't heard anything bad about the service which is a good sign.

Whats wrong with uTorrent? I use the latest Pro version. The UI is clean, and it's so easy to add torrents to my home computer remotely with their web app.

If you're paying for pro I very much doubt that uTorrent is going to try dodgy stuff with you. You 'should' be fine.

No No..I torrented the pirated version of uTorrent Pro using uTorrent Free. lawl.

[removed]

Thank you!

you're welcome

Also add thetorrentpeoject.se to the list, it's an index with good and bad torrents but it has verified users etc so it's very good. So far it has the largest index I've seen, all the way from Russian sites, to polish ones to Pakistani ones to the pirate bay. It's got a clean look and the owner is very responsive. It has a reporting and liking system too.

do you mean torrentproject.se? If so then yeah I'll add it on

Yep, remember to mention that this does have some bad torrents though.

okeh

In addition to/instead of Kodi + Exodus, how about FreeTelly? It's a modified Kodi for Mac or PC that already has various things like Exodus set up.

Good post, how about a sports streaming section?

ohh... that's a good idea. Unfortunately I don't stream sports so you guys will have to provide me with the links.

perfect!!

thanks

i hope this'll clean up the sub

i hope so too

What are some good music-only sites that don't require invites to be allowed in?

Does the spotify modified hosts file work for the newest version 1.0.39.157?

Does for me

What's the best torrent site for downloading pc audio production software?

What's the best torrent site for downloading pc audio production software?

no idea!

Does anyone have a decent site to watch the documentary called 13th which was released the other week on Netflix? It's not available where I am and can't seem to find it anyway else to watch/acquire.

There is a link in the misc. section about free premium accounts. They have netflix accounts as well! just go there and watch it from netflix.

Thanks, but already tried that but it does not work. When trying to gather the Netflix Account Link, the page just gives a: 'There was an error. Please refresh the page.'

error message. Cheers anyway :)

Can someone help me understand how to use Deezloader? I extracted the .zip and had server running locally using the start.bat file but what to do next? How to search for files?

did a new chrome (I'm going to assume that you use chrome) tab popup after you started the server? If not just open up chrome and type localhost:1720 The rest is pretty evident.

Thanks. Id didn't itselt, I had to type it. I have one more issue, after downloading something the cmd prompt shows error

Trace: [TypeError: Cannot read property '0' of undefined]
    at process.&lt;anonymous> (E:\Software\Deezloader-2.0.3-win\app.js:705:11)
    at process.emit (events.js:95:17)
    at process._fatalException (node.js:295:26)  

The song doesn't get download. I am not sure what is issue?

Im not sure either honestly.

Try running the bat as an administrator? Cannot read makes it sound like a permission problem.

Does that premium account link works? I tried Netflix but it doesn't work

It said last billing was 11th so no it doesn't for now. Wait for the account to be updated which should happen in the next week or so.

Another good automatic TV Show download tool is ShowRSS. I like it because it doesn't require any special software or setup, you just copy your RSS link into your torrent client (QBittorrent in my case) and set it to automatically download any links from the feed (you should be able to set rules based on keywords).

I also use the AMC filebot script to automatically rename and sort any downloads.

Can anyone explain me what the "modified hosts file" does regarding Spotify?

blocks ads

It basically blocks the IP addresses that Spotify uses for it's ads.

oh ok :) thank you

I'd strongly suggest getting rid of that best bittorrent vpn link (your "Safe Torrenting" link), that's just a spam site with VPN referrals. A ton of throwaway Reddit accounts spam that & other sites here on Reddit. Not to mention you really can't trust "advice" from someone trying to sell you on their VPN referrals $$$.

(not going to link it in my comment, too spammy)

haha ok. I'll find another source.

Best recomendations

why thank you

I know we are not supposed to give links here, but i used the sites you said but i can't find this book in french :/

https://www.amazon.fr/Neurosciences-Dale-Purves/dp/2807300022/ref=sr_1_1/254-4238717-8120265?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1476572774&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=neurosciences+purves

Linking to sites like amazon is fine. Ummm after a quick search I found some of the older versions of the book, but not the latest. Search in google Neurosciences by Dale Purves.

I found english version easily, but none in french. I guess the torrent pool for french textbook is pretty dry :p

cri.

CRI? Is that a site?

haha alright :p I'll update you if I find a good source for french textbooks ;)

Thanks! Have you tried looking on any torrent sites? I'm sure some of the private ones will have it.

I guess I should try to find a french private site, do you know any?

nope. Your english sounds fine why do you want it in french?

My girlfriend is taking a course (in french) that uses this book. She can also understand english, but it's easier for her to have a French version :p

Fair enough. I wish you good luck my good sir.

Is there a guide to help me set up my PIA vpn with deluge?

You don't need to change anything in Deluge when using VPN. Just turn on the VPN and that's it.

Just have a few corrections/suggestions

RARGB is spelt RARBG.

May I also suggest sorting comments by "new". I've seen this on other sticked posts and works a lot better imho.

Could these be better host files? It combines domains from a variety of sources including mvps.org

I know your patriotic to your favourite media player, but could you possibly include a few other great ones? Examples such as MPC-BE + MadVR, mpv.io, SMPlayer and even VLC.

I recommend including "youtube-dl" a python script that can download from a large amount of websites. Inserting a -x in the command will also download audio-only.

ahhh woops!

Can someone please DM me a place to download microsoft toolkit? I am fairly new to this pirating thing and got across a malware sadly :(

*pm

holy shit, I didn't know there was a viable site for getting books. They even have very unknown authors. Was able to find the last book in a series I was reading. Fuckin awesome....I can also see there's much better movie streaming sites. I was using projectfreetv. Huge pain the ass with all the clickjacking.

lol. Good that the post it helping out. You know how to view epub files?

Yup, just googled how to open epub and found some software :3. This whole list is super helpful, idk why I wasn't able to find a lot of these on my own.

What do you use?

Lightweight, works fine so far.

http://www.epubfilereader.com/

ewww... if you're on windowns 10 have a look at Bibliovore.

Is there a way to get it via third party? I have literally every windows 10 feature disabled and kept barebones. Wasn't risking the spyware rumors.

You don't have the windows store?

I do, it just doesnt connect to anything

What do you mean doesn't connect to anything? If you are so paranoid with win 10 why not just stay with win 7?

also I see why you recommended what you did. It has a nice GUI whilst the one I got didn't. I downloaded one called icecram just now and it looks much better.

Oh an btw Calibre is hands down the best book manager/reader. But when it truly starts to shine is when you start building up a bigger library.

noice. Yeh Bibliovore is the best looking epub reader by far. It's a little buggy but that's only because it's farily new and still developing.

because one of these days windows 7 is gonna become obsolete like windows xp and nobodies gonna use it anymore so it's smart to start learning the new OS's now whether it be I'm fixing other peoples computers (which all pre-built ones will come with 10 now) or for work. I think in just like 2 years here windows 7 isn't gonna be updated anymore. Then as time moves on games upgrade with the new OS's. Certain games and software won't even run on anything lower than vista. If they did I'd still just use XP.

Not sure if this allowed but this a paste of windows kms tools with 2 mirrors each and md5 and sha1 for each tool.

How do i subscribe to this subreddit? Dont see the button.

errrmmmm.... beside the big ol' #piracy# text in the sidebar. The circle thingy.

iplusfree.com has been suspended. They were the best site for downloading itunes AAC music. Looks like I will just go back to using music streaming services.

use Deezloarder if you still want to download music.

Thanks a lot for this, a lot of good info here.

you're very welcome my kind sir!

How do I know if I did the "replace framework" crack right on photoshop? Theres no more "7 days left" on my screen when I open the program and it seems fully functioning...

Then you're fine! You have to be pretty special if you manage to screw up copy+pasting a framework :D

Yeah I think I did it right,

Show packages>framework folder> replace framework

I think that was just it so... Yay :)

I take a graphics class this year and I didn't want to learn all those skills so they could never be used again! Really hope I get better with Photoshop :D

hehe xD

Is a VPN all that's needed to be hidden from my ISP? Are there any other security cautions I'd need to take?

Also, is there any benefit to using a Virtual Machine or no difference to using on the base machine?

As for the ISP stuff, a good VPN will cover you but honestly a healthy dose of common sense would help you out too. For the virtual machine/sandbox program, it is helpfull in some cases (if you're downloading dodgy software) but in general use just use your base machine.

Another really good place for books is blacklib.com

Sites like putlocker or solarmovies - do they upload/seed the movie as well during watching?

No. They stream, you are not uploading anything.

Really, Daz is still pushed here when MyDigitalLife Forum's "Microsoft Toolkit" is available?!

Both work. I'm just giving the peeps a few options. I personally use ms toolkit but meh...

This is useful. Thanks

Flud (android) btw there is a paid version of the app which removes the ads. I'm sure you guys can find... ahem 'a better way' of getting that version.

Oh, the Limewire Pro method.

Thank you good sir!

You're welcome.

Alluc.ee is a great search engine for finding streams! :)

Yo bro..

Torrentz2.eu

Also, rarbg is not too good. I find 1337x better plus it has more torrents and earlier releases

RARBG is for scene release not the random crap 1337x has...

lots of people recommended rarbg. That is why it is there.

Also, rarbg is not too good

Imo rarbg is much better.
1) No BS torrents; "controlled" environment with legit torrents
2) Proper tagging and naming
3) Proper scene releases
4) Much FASTER uploads than any other torrent site (Latest example - This was the first site (torrent) where Civ VI got uploaded. 1337x was the last (amongst the main sites now i.e. ET, rarbg, TPB, rutracker and 1337x)

OP I thought you'd like to take a look at this.

I'm not sure if it's a false positive but AutoShun sites it as Malicious.

Dude trust me on this. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Potplayer. It is fantastic and by no means misleading and/or malicious.

Only download Microsoft toolkit from mydigitallife.info, because other sites that appear in google, install adware and bitcoin miner on your PC.

Anyone know good websites for VST torrents

Can somebody explain the modified host file thing for Spotify? What does it do and why should I use it? Thanks!

This has been asked multiple times, please look before posting...

I have Windows 7 64-bit home premium. I'm on a UEFI motherboard so DAZ loader doesn't work for activating it. The key that came with my Windows is for upgrading and not a clean install so I can't use it anymore since I got a new hard drive.

I tried to use Microsoft Toolkit but it says: "<Cannot Activate because this product is incapable of KMS Activation.>" or "<Product key installation failed> The Software Licensing Service reported that the license is not installed." Also, when I click on "Activate" it just gets suck on Processing.

What are my options now?

I am not an expert at this topic. I suggest making a new post on the subreddit with that information. Also consider updating to windows 10 and then using ms toolkit activate that. You'll have to update eventually, why not now!

[removed]

Thank fucking god rock on dude this is awesome! I got tired of answering a hundred VPN question on a daily basis.

Yeh. I made this post for that very reason. Now if only people check it before they start making posts!

My combo: qbitorrent+rarbg+1337x on my tv: chromecast+terrarium tv+ localcast

You can get terrarium for tv? Btw I would also suggest getting popcorn time for the tv -> r/popcorntime

yes using chromecast

oh ok that makes sense. I thoght that you somehow installed the app onto your TV.

The mod lords have showered us with wisdom, Hallelujah!

hehe. Thanks buddy.

Question: I downloaded the XCOM 2 CODEX file and installed it- however, it seems to be a Windows 8 edition is installed. However, I thought a PC disc is a PC disc, you can't say it's for one operating system. My question is, can I attempt to install it again with for a Windows 10 system?

What about 123music.to i think it's awesome !

Why not newer than 2.2.1 utorrent?

have a look in the comments. I've answered this question heaps of times. xD

There is no reason.

I'm using utorrent 3.4.9, how come it's not recommended to use this?

ads, sneaky adware/freeware installation and utorrent have been doing some dodgy stuff. Google it!

Yeah haha I tried to but nothing ended up coming, so I decided to post it here. Anyways, thanks a bunch for your reply! I'll downgrade as soon as all my downloads are done :)

You don't have to wait for the dls to finish. Just copy the magnet link of the torrents and download them to the same location using the 2.2.1 client. The client should realise that parts of the torrent are already downloaded and will simply continue the download. If it doesn't do this, simply pause the torrent then right click on it and select recheck (or force recheck or something like that, idk exactly what it is). Oh and also if you want more advanced features and an up to date client I would strongly recommend qbittorrent or deluge. Both are fantastic alternatives.

Thanks again for the reply, very much appreciated! I did see a lot of people mentioning that qbittorrent and deluge are somewhat better than utorrent as it currently stands, and from this a lot of them seem to be leaning towards qbittorrent. I'll check them both out and I'll try the torrent transfer method you mentioned as well. :) Thanks again!

You're welcome.

Because OP is misinformed...

I'm new to android. Can someone teach me how to pirate android games? I know how to do it on iphone. I used appcake. I specifically want to pirate final fantasy vi from the play store.

  1. Go to mobilism

  2. Get a mobilism account

  3. Search for whatever app you want

  4. Download the apk

  5. Make sure that installing of apps from unknown sources is enabled. (in setting)

  6. Install the app using the downloaded apk and then you are done!

Is it a good idea to log into the free premium spotify accs and add your own acc to its family? Thanks

ummmmm.... why though? The account will be taken down within days anyway. Just make all you playlists public and use the free account to search for your actual account. Much easier this way.

Gotcha, but it seems like the accounts only work when I'm on the spotify website. I can't log in on the app on the computer or phone.

EDIT: Spelling

Yeh, I think the client is region locked.

Oh I got it, I had to use the device username in the account info instead of the normal username. How can I listen without having other people changing the music (people on at the same time)?

Wait... device username? Also no one can change you personal playlists, just view them if they are public.

Yeah if you go to account details you'll find "device username" which you would use instead of the email. But when I was listening it seemed like somebody else was also on the account and they could pause my music and play theirs on their phone etc.

hmmm... that's wired. I'm pretty sure that isn't supposed to happen.

Remove http://softfunda.com/ From Misc "Free Premium Accounts"

that site has an TJ ads viruses

Anyone have a recommend for finding comics? I've been using libgen to find comics mostly, but lately I've been getting corrupt files from there or it won't let me finish my download so I'm looking for a reliable alternative.

Hey is good not using a VPN software in a country like italy? The copyright restriction in this country are realy shitty like eastern europe. So torrent file is safe right without VPN?

I'm pretty sure that you will be fine pirating stuff for personal consumption in Italy. However, make sure you do it on personal networks (e.g. at home) and you know... use your brain.

If you can afford it, I would recommend using a VPN anyway, better safe than sorry right? You "should" be fine either way though.

yeah, thanks for advice, in my city almost 80% people always use pirating stuff!

Thank you! Now I have somewhere to watch movies and TV shows when I have the time.

Since Putlocker is gone now and Vodlocker is down :(

YAY! If you have the time I would recommend setting up Kodi. It's probably the best way to watch stuff.

:D

Ok, I have no idea how to use this "Kodi" and solarmovie is fine right now lol.

There is a link showing you how to set it up buddy.

Oh, ok :3

xD

After all the hate for utorrent, I left it to try deluge. After days of use, tweaking the settings, setting up port forwardin (all of which I never had to do in utorrent), I left deluge and went back to utorrent because deluge speeds fucking sucked. I'm sad because I wanted it to work out. :(

If you liked utorrent you should have gone to qbittorrent. It is very similar.

What do I have to gain? I've used qbit casually before. In fact it's what we use at work, but I've never investigated for speed improvements or anything. I got utorrent pro so ads aren't an issue

If you pay for the utorrent you have nothing to worry about, their ain't no way in hell that they will screw around with paying customers.

just curious, how do they screw with non-paying customers (except with annoying ads)?

Dude. Just have a look at the comments, there are a bunch of things.

You see, I was actually interested in YOUR opinion. I don't care anymore, though. Thanks !

oh ok lel

There's nothing wrong with uTorrent, so no need to change.

As a streaming site, I'd recommend pmovies.to; I'd never heard of it until a while ago, but it's incredible.

It's 1080p and optionally subtitled on both desktop and mobile, and its UI is incredible.

Not to mention it has a very quick server switch that lets you find a better quality version than whatever you're having problems with almost instantly.

Yeah it looks really good but have a look at solarmovies (top of the list) the are pretty much the same.

I use fmovies.to but that's pretty good too. Always good to have a backup if the pop ups get too much. Not a problem on the laptop but It's a nuisance on the xbone

Libgen is down for me

Try the mirror in the Honourable Mentions section.

Thanks, it works. Nice thread btw

thanks

Anyone know where I can get premiere pro and ae?

I PM'd him no answer, forgot to post on the thread just did that now. But any other trusted ways you know?

not really my dude. Just google the AMTEmu and use it.

Are there any current good general torrent sites? Like what The Pirate Bay was ages ago, and Kickass Torrents was up until a little while back.

I haven't managed to find anywhere these days that has any of the stuff I'm looking for apart from TV shows.

At the moment I'm looking for the D&D book "Volo's Guide to Monsters", which came out a few days ago and most of the other books have been available pretty quickly after release.

I'm also looking for the score-writing software "Dorico".

And a few other slightly obscure things that I think I would have been able to find in Demonoid, TPB, or KAT's heydays, but today I'm just not aware of any really good general-purpose sites.

RARBG for scene releases

1337x for everything

Extratorrent for everything

Zoogle for everything

TPB for some stuff

For software you can try: Onhax, Warez-BB or crackingpatching

I dont think there is a site atm that fills the whole that kat left. For sofatwares have a look at tehparadox, for books look the the options in the post.

Can deluge be used on Mac OS?

Yes sir.

This should go in the wiki

hehe xD

Any seedbox suggestions?

check out r/seedboxes for more indepth information. Whatbox, Feral, ChmuraNet, Seedhost.EU, tal0ne are all recommended frequently.

thank you. is a seedbox required to keep up my ratio?

No, you do not. You just won't have a stellar ratio, but I have seen plenty of people maintain a 1:1 ratio without seedboxes and on shitty home connections. What you will required to have is a big HDD.

Are you sure the deezloader download is safe?? I downloaded it, ran the .exe and it gave me some funky error message. then I tried to delete the zip but it wouldn't let me so I restarted and the zip was gone.

there is no exe...

hoboi. time to wipe my computer T.T

lmao

ikr? guess it had to happen someday.

good thing you figured it out quickly

What's the best way to download music directly to Android? I tried using audiojack.io but it doesn't work all the time. Besides I want better quality than YouTube audio. For now I'm using musicpleer.cc

Try out Musicall and Netease. If don't have problems with torrenting, get Flud torrent client, torrent the music you want and upload it to Google Music. Damn there was a really good app for this but I can't remember it right now. I'll get back to you if I remember.

I've discovered Fildo. It's pretty neat

it is!

Quick update (don't know if anyone updated but I'll update anyway)

Lost FM is no longer on Google Play Store but still works flawlessly.

I can provide a backup apk if needed.

Please post a link to the apk. =)

Check your inbox

Can I also get the apk please?

Sure thing. Check your inbox.

shit fo real???

what happened to it?

Couldn't find it on the store anymore :/

RIP

RIP

which site is safe for microsoft toolkit?

damn dude, I legit have no idea. I would suggest having a look on torrent sites and checking out the uploads of the user. Go to a few of their uploads and skim through the comments, if there's nothing alarming you should be fine.

I just got the one from freemicrosofttoolkit.com/ and it totally wrecked my fresh install. It's also PACKED with bloat/malware and I couldn't even deselect it all, it force installed about 6 programs, 2 of which attempted a blind hijack of my browser with no visible extension or home page change.

Definitely need to find a legit source.

Torrents. Check the comments and the uploaders previous uploads.

just want to throw it out there that the current humble bundle life hacker software includes a VPN for $6 a year

yep!

Do you have a link? I can't find it

Is there any place I can download Android apps that have full versions, paid stuff etc?

mobilism.org?

I looked but they didn't have the new vsco with all the filters.

Just search for whatever app you want and add "cracked/hacked apk" in google. e.g. Tiny Towers Hacked apk

soft win/mac final full fast host for free

http://vpsamz-bb.com/

This post is super helpful so thanks for that.

The book-getting links seem excellent for individual books or if you know exactly what you're looking for. Is there a recommended source for downloading a compilation of a lot of books at once? Ideally some kind of "suggested reads" set with recent releases in addition to aged classics.

For that you're going to just have to search something along the lines of "X book collection" on torrent sites. Also try out soulseek.

Can someone recommend me torrent sites for Asian drama, preferably public trackers? Especially Chinese drama?

I recently found it-ebooks.directory when Googling a book I was interested in. The first time I remember seeing it. Should this go on the list as well?

I don't think so. The site doesn't offer anything new and is inferior to the once on the list. Thanks for the suggestion though. Keep sending them in if you find other sites!

123movies.to has been closed 😭

123movies.is :P

123movies.is is a great substitute for 123movies.to which has been closed (apparently)

123movies.to just redirects to the .is domain now.

[deleted]

Can recommend LibreTorrent as an android client to be added to the list. Open-source (GitHub), ad-free and has material design. An amazing alternative to flud.

Thanks, I'll add it right on.

"Cookies Netflix" changed their url to a new one: http://cookiesnetfl1x.com, I believe it's the same site. I think you should update the url in the topic.

Alright thatnks buddy. Do the cookies from the site still work? I haven't used it in months

Yes, still working. i'm using one today.

You should also add Kisscartoon with Kissanime

Those sites are on their way out, they are getting more and more aggressive with their ads, and there are a lot of users jumping ship

What other alternative is there to Kisscartoon?

solarmovie.sc has everything that I personally watch, so I haven't had to look for alternatives. It seems to have the same stuff thats currently on TV that KCartoon has

What I'm looking for is the older cartoons, less known ones, I can't even find Torrents of them

[deleted]

Thankyou for posting this

you're welcome

what about Reloaded?

What do you mean?

is solarmovies.sc down for everyone? it was all working just last night...

thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaank you my favorite thread on the interweb ever

lul ty

So say I wanted to download the whole Beatles discography for later listening where would I go?

rutracker

Anything recommended for comics?

I don't really know many sources man. But you could try this -> https://github.com/evilhero/mylar

Wow , great post ,thank you! To download torrents , what is the best page (pc games) because igg-games only have direct links.

rarbg.to

rutor.info

igg have a torrent site to. Check on the main page of igg.

Can you help me find where to get the latest version of inAudible please?!

what is that?

Program specifically for deciphering Audible audiobooks. Really, really good!

huh. never heard of it.

bit.ly/inAudible193

inAudible v1.9.3 (Latest version as of 12/2016)

If you or anyone else uses Audible, this is the program for you. It un-encrypts the audiobooks and re-encodes them how ever you like. Not only is this fast, but it also cuts out the Audible ('This is Audible' or similar such messages) spam mixed into the audio streams.

Also contains all necessary mini applications to cut and edit chapters as one wishes.

Hey Klappa thanks for the informative post, as long time lurker of this sub, I think it might be good to put in some info for phone apps pirating. Eg. Mobilism.

hmmm... I can't believe that I missed that. Thanks for the idea. I'll add it to the todo list that I'll get to after my holidays.

Appreciate it! My daughter got a new iPad this Christmas, and we have all of our movies on the computer. Was hoping to come here to find the must-have apps and figuring out how to transfer content to the iPad.

IP blocker

?

You mean a proxy? The easiest is hotspot shield.

RenameIt is a great free alternative to FileBot

I'll have a look at it. I've not had a problem with filebot yet but am always open to alternatives.

well I changed my mind, it's not that great.

okeh

solarmovie.sc

I was looking for a site like this one. Thank you!

you're welcome.

Suggestion for MustHave apps. MusicBrainz Picard, it scans tags your music with data from the MusicBrainz database. Useful for fixing bad metadata from pirated music.

Are there any ways to pirate photoshop for PC?

lol

What happened to pirate bay? Now it just has popups even though I have adblock and ublock. And there are no new releases on it.

Works fine for me

Update the lists for both

Two programs that i use that might be good for some people...

  • Format Factory, if you're interested in changing the format of music, for exaple, .flac to .mp3. It might be good if you don't want to download 15gb of .flac audio, just download a .mp3 relative (more faster) and then use this program to change the audio to .flac.

  • Spash Pro EX, It is better than VLC in terms of making the video better looking, it does have some nice features, the only bad thing that i've seen is that it doesn't have support for some formats, but if you have some 2160p videos this is the best player that you can use for those kinds of videos, it'll give more "sharp textures" to the video, an exaple could be this, it is not the player but the video will look like this. There's a paid version, that you people can find easy. PS: one thing, if you have some movies with True-HD audio, it won't reproduce the audio (it'll only reproduce the video) this is because the player only allows True-HD audio through Bitstream, the player have an option to select Bitstream, but you can only select it if your out put audio is with an HDMI.

EDIT: just found out that Splash Pro EX is no longer supported, there's a newer player, Splash 2, basically it is an upgrade of Spllash Pro EX, and it seems that it is even better since it supports 4k and H.265.

Going for compressed audio to flac is like getting a baked potato and then trying to turn it into a fresh one.

You're right, i didn't heard any less quality, in fact from mp3 to flac i think there's a little improvement but i know it is not the true flac, i didn't saw the details so it might be there

What do you guys think of TunnelBear? I downloaded it and its 49.99/year to upgrade for unlimited data. Using a Mac.

Im pretty sure that t bear is fine. Just google it and read some customer reviews first though.

Do we have crack for waltr 2 yet

Question- I am new to seeding my own torrents. Is there a reason I'm giving somebody 7 MBPS and one poor guy 7.5 KBPS? Using transmission.

Holy shit

Lol I don't even get 7Mbps down.

lucky patcher couldnt be downloaded from their original website. Its re directing to ad fly site and nothing happens there after. Anyone experiencing same?

Guys i am looking to get dr.who (the new one) but can find it.. i only got the old one. Any tip?

Any way to play denuvo games without hurting your ssd?

I would not trust anybody that says your SSD will be hurt by Denuvo. The people who made Denuvo outright deny it, and I suspect could be sued if this was found to be false.

Yes but he high as fuck ssd usage sure should be worrying when its at 100% use.Like what the fuck

No idea. Sorry. Just google it.

Thank you so much for this

You're welcome!

Wow, this is such an amazing post! Good work OP putting this list togather!

I do have a doubt, I have shitty Internet so downloading comics is time consuming. I'd rather read comics online.

I've used sites like readcomiconline.to, view-comic. Com, comicmad.com etc to read it online.

But it's incredibly tiring to read on an Android phone as some sites won't allow me to zoom in etc, is there a site/method/app to read comics online from some websites much easily?

I can't think of one right now but look in the comments I'm pretty sure someone suggested an android app that fits your purpouses.

Is there a site I can get Wii U ISOs from? (direct download)

No idea mate sorry. I don't have a wii u.

[deleted]

I knew about PortalROMs, but thanks anyway.

Appreciate the ebook links, is there an app or jb tool for iphones with the database instead of readers?

I'm sure there are IRC apps for iPhone that support downloads.

I'd suggest adding the Book IRC channels to the list or as an honorable mention. Its gotten me books I couldn't even find legit.

Mate did you even looks at the ebook section of the past lmao.

Oops. The navy took my eyes for pirating too hard :(.

Well damn. But I guess eyepatches are cool so you'll be fine.

Whats website for sports streaming?

Arenavision but you have to have Acestream installed.

is there going to be screen season this year? cause last year didn't end up to well :(

Screen season?

He meant "screeners", our messiah :)

I have no idea who that is.

I leave for a few months and someone tries to say deluge is good. What has this poor sub come to?

[deleted]

Personal experience and forum posts.

Deluge has deleted my torrents twice now. All of them in one go. The GUI is clunky and looks older and less optimized than utorrent 2.2.3. The program is clunky in and of itself. Settings are harder to find, torrents harder to create, and selection is more difficult. Selecting parts of a torrent to download is a pain in the ass.

What's wrong with deluge?

The alternatives are all better

I guess that depends on personal preference. I use qbittorrent personally but have also quite happily used deluge in the past. I might have to again as I'm thinking about making a torrent machine using a raspberry pi. Oh and also utorrent is an alternative and I can that without doubt it is NOT better.

I thought tunnelbear can't be use for torrenting? Also if it can't does using zbigz for direct download works?

No tunnelbear does not support p2p and as far as I'm aware you can't direct download using zbigz (I could be wrong though).

Is this the rutracker website you were talking about?

Yes.

well, where is the other options?

Does the modified hosts file for Spotify really work? When I tried apps like EzBlocker, they never worked.

Yes it works. I've used it for months and haven't heard a single advertisement.

Yes you're right. Not sure why it didn't work the first time I tried it but I used Spotify for ~5 hours yesterday without a single ad.

Yay

I don't even know if this will ever get seen by someone who can help me but, I installed FileBot, and goddamn if this isn't the greatest thing I have seen in quite some time...if it worked. I am able to load up a whole season of poorly named episodes on the left panel, then click "fetch info" and it fixes the filenames perfectly in the right pane, then click "rename" and nothing happens. The new files never get saved. I've been to the forums, watched a quick tutorial (which shows me doing everything properly) but no dice.

If anyone has any advice (i've restarted my computer, lol) I'd surely appreciate it. I need this program in my life. The amount of time I have spent renaming shows and movies is ridiculous. Also, as far as I can tell, Filebot is far and away the best utility out there for this purpose.

Also- thanks a bunch to the OP, awesome post.

I really dont know how to help you in this busy. The only thing I can suggest is that you run filebot as administrator and check if the files you are trying to rename are protected. Also if you torented the files make sure your torrent client is not seeding in the background, that may cause problems. Good luck and let me know if this ends up working.

Thanks for the reply. I have not tried running as administrator. The other things you mentioned aren't an issue.

EDIT: I have tried running as admin, without success. I see that in the tutorial, when you click 'rename' a pop-up appears at the top center of the screen showing "x files renamed." I have never seen it appear. So frustrating. I'm going to see if there is a previous version I can try, and I'll try to run it as a different user.

I just realized something good, though - all of my media is on an external drive, so at the very least, I can run the program on a different computer and rename everything I currently have. Not very convenient to do every time I download something though.

[deleted]

What's the name of the game?

[deleted]

Does FitGirl Repacks have a website?

Thanks

Yes. Though I can't provide links to it on this subreddit. Just google it.

I can suggest adding monkrus somewhere in this list, he (re)uploads a shitton of things on his site, always great quailty.

VPN Review And 57% top 75% off This Month

Windscribe VPN is pretty good. 10GB/month, free.

Yep

Why not use uTorrent versions above 2.2.1?

IIRC it had (has?) a virus of some kind in it. Possibly a bitcoin miner, but I can't find anything about it now. I'd recommend staying away from it, and going to an open-source alternative. No reason not to.

Okay, thanks for the info!

Have a look through the comments, there are explanations there.

There is no reason not to.

Xbox original games are really hard to find online without torrents for some reason, especially compared to Ps2/Wii or older stuff. Isozone has a ton of Firedrop links, but they limit your bandwidth per month. Is Microsoft going after Xbox downloaders? Isn't it safe to torrent games this old?

[deleted]

Are the Apollo staff actually doing anything on the recruitment channel? I've been waiting for a long ass time, but absolutely nothing has happened. Are interviews actually going on?

No idea mate. You might want to ask on r/trackers (I'm ussuming that apollo is a private tracker)

I did. That place is so toxic.

Well crap. That kind of sucks. Really the only thing i can say is give it time. Most private trackers only have a few mods and even fewer recruiters. Give them time and I'm sure they'll get to you eventually, thay is of course assuming that the site is still taking new members.

I got an invite ;)

YAY!!

Just caught a typo here under the part on F.lux (which I would also recommend).

Will seem wired at first but once you adjust you will NEVER go back.

I think that was supposed to be 'weird'. Not that big of a deal but can be confusing given both terms apply in the case of computer-type stuff (ie: weird internet connection vs wired internet connection).

Edit: Caught something else, link for Library Genesis should be non https (link as is doesn't work on my end at least, tried multiple browsers): http://libgen.io/.

Ty for this. I am on holiday atm but will change it once I get back home.

Microsoft Toolkit Link?

Against the rules mate.

SOrry, I forgot, Could you PM it?

easiest vpn to use?

That depends on what you define as easy. Most are very simple to set up and use. I'd say as long as you have a brain you'll be fine with any of the top three.

anonymox

So wait, why not use uTorrent past 2.2.1?

There is no reason not to.

Check the comments. I've explained it numerous times :P

So is it just me, or does using Undernet/bookz on IRC just... not work? No error messages when I fetch the files, nothing. Just nothing happens.

Just you buddy. I've had no problems myself.

That's really unfortunate. Maybe I'll give it a couple days and see if the problem goes away.

Why don't you just use IRC highway? I find it way better.

I read around, and the general consensus seems to be that Undernet has a better selection. No idea how true that is, though. Heck, it might as well have no selection if I can't use it, haha.

Try using irc highway. It's never let me down.

I'll certainly give it a try. Thanks!

It most probably sounds like his client doesn't have DCC or he's using a webclient

What IRC client are you using? If your client doesn't support DCC, you won't be able to download files through it.

I'm using KVIrc. I successfully download .txt files when I submit a search, though, so I'm not sure that would be it.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm out on holiday atm but I'll make sure to look into them when i get back to my computer.

Hey, just found out you can get 50gig/mo free forever with Windscribe using a voucher code: http://www.techradar.com/news/get-50gb-free-vpn-bandwidth-every-month-for-life

Whhhhaaaataatttttttt!!!!

Really good deal. I'm the founder btw, will be happy to answer any questions.

Hi OP, could you add nyaa.se and tokyotosho.info under a "Japanese" category? Noticed a couple of weaboo request posts recently.

I'll be sure to add these once I get back home. Can you remind me to do this in about a months time?

Okay I'll try 👌

What does the modifed Hosts file actually do? Does it block ads? Or does it block possibly-not-safe-for-your-pc/privacy websites?

From what I understand it blocks connections with advertising servers. It has something to do with altering the DNS server or something like that.

It can block whatever you want it to block.

My hosts file is setup to block ads, malware, porn and program activation domains.

Any reason why you didn't recommend Free Download Manager?

Because idm is life.

Could you update the download links for deezloader please ? There are already 2 new versions released.

If the releases are from the original creater you can simply update the program.

The original developer has abandoned the project and his domain is dead. The version in this thread (2.0.3) is spamming for update on a dead domain and won't ever receive a response, also this version has bugs.

I took over maintaining the project and I've fixed and improved the project.

I really like Halite as a torrent client. It works pretty well for me.

Will you please my new privacy focused torrent search engine https://www.skytorrents.in . It already has more than 10 million torrents

I always wonder why Vuze isn't among recommended torrent clients.

It is a ressource hog. That being said, it's very feature rich IME. Being a ressource hog doesn't stop most people from using Google Chrome, why would it be an issue for torrenting?

What's CPY website? There are a shit ton on Google lol

Scene groups don't have sites

alright, thanks!!

guys I just noticed that rainierland is still alive and kicking. The new group claims to continue tamayo's principles, no ads and only good movies. The chromecast icon works as well. More here rainier-tamayo.org

What's the best website to watch live sports?

In my opinion, Arenavision but you have to have Acestream installed

What about comic books?

nvm I bought the goddamn book.

http://getcomics.info/ is a good one

Unfortunately, 123movies.ru got blocked at work. Do we have any good alternatives? solar is also blocked.

Why the fuck are CPY, SKIDROW repackers?

They're SCENE GROUPS, not repackers.

How good is idope.se ?

Good?

This is the torrent link for the cracked Internet Download manager

Do not ask for or link to pirated content. Your comment or post will be deleted.

Aptoide is the best for downloading paid apps for free!

did you mean appstoide?

I was looking into betternet and found a year old reddit thread full of people suspicious about free VPNs. A lot of people mentioned "hola" which apparently was selling data or using people for honeypots or something.

I guess I'm basically asking: Should I actually avoid free VPNs like the plague or were people just a bit gunshy because of a recent catastrophe?

So, if I download games on my 3ds through either title keys or cias, without cheating online, will I get banned if I go online?

You run the risk of being banned if you use pirated or 3rd party software. If you cheat you definitely will be discovered.

well, I have no intention to cheat or use 3rd party software online. Will I be good if I just download the game's stock cia?

I said 3rd party or pirated. So there is a possibility especially if you play a popular game like pokemon. I wouldn't risk it if you have your nintendo account connected to you 3ds.

Do you play pirated games on your 3DS? Of course you don't, because if you did you'd be more knowledgeable on this.

/u/Sotirisdim4 You are 100% safe to play games online that are in .cia format as long as those games are not modified in any way. The only reason people got banned for playing Pokemon is because they thought it's a great idea to go online when the game wasn't even out yet .. Not hard from Nintendo's end to do 1+1 = 2 and ban everyone who appeared online.

If you want to be extra sure then use freeShop because those CIA files are 100% legit and indistinguishable from pirated ones .. After all, you're downloading them through Nintendo's servers on your own 3DS. It is impossible to get banned for playing .CIA games online as they do not have private headers like .3ds files do, so a pirated .cia will look identical to a legit cia when you're online.

Source: Me and my experience as well as hundreds of other people's experience. I'm a frequent member at GBATemp and I've NEVER heard of ANYONE getting banned playing online except on the Pokemon fiasco with the leaked copy.

Do you play pirated games on your 3DS?

Yes, I do! In fact, I have filled my SD with games and cart backups. Was just asking if nintendo can see for example that I'm using a pirated (unmodified of course) game. Sweet! Now I'm waiting to get that 32GB SD and I'm getting even more games!

Thanks!

That question was not intended at you. Hopefully ya got that. It's obvious that you pirate games. But the other dudes reply implied that he knew what he was talking about.. Except that he doesn't. So yeah you're safe to play .cia games.

oops, I didn't open the actual thread, I was just reading from the messages page.

I'd like to recommend mobilism.me for ebooks. They have a large selection and requests can be made. you just have to register to search or make requests but downloading can be made anonymous

A stupid question, but what is the real website for CODEX or RG Mechanics, because there are a lot of fake ones

Codex is scene, they don't have a site.

Now that deezloader 2.0.3 is dead, will you update the link to the new one that works ? I've received many PMs and some people still post for support over at /r/deezloader but I can't help them because I don't support that version anymore.

Why isn't CCCP codec pack in the list :( kudos to them

CCCP hasn't been updated in years... most use K-Light now

Because why would you need CCCP when you can just use the almight superior VLC ..

Is what the OP is probably thinking. Or isn't, but uses VLC anyway. Idk. I agree with you , CCCP is amazing but eh people tend to lean towards VLC because "ez to use".

Why would you need VLC when MPC-HC exists?

Why don't you read my post again? I don't use VLC, but people do and think it's the "ultimate solution" or whatever.

Why exactly is RG mechanics god tier? Torrents on their website contain malware that's near impossible to remove...

You're obviously on a fake R.G. Mechanics site...

Netflix Cookies is not working anymore. Always asks for a pin, and the site admins does not provide it.

Well damn. I'm on holiday right now but I'll look into it when I get back.

Lol. No worries. Just a friendly notice. Thanks for the list!

Okey dokey

Found a place where i can download comics http://getcomics.info/ downloads take a while though........

Thanks! i'll try it out.

Thanks for this. I'll check it out.

I get an Error Loading Media message on solarmovie . Is there a way to get around this?

Do unmodified games obtained through cia/freeshop on my 3DS get merged to my NNID?

No idea mate. I don't have a 3DS so I haven't looked into all of this stuff.

If you wanna know if they can freely be redownloaded, Systemtransferred or show up in your Eshop Download history: No they shouldn't. Once you delete them it is like you never owned them

Anyone know a source for Urban Empires? I want to try it before I buy. I paid full price for everything tropico when it came out, felt a little cheated.

What's wrong with upgrading uTorrent?

ads, bloatware, bitcoinminers and generally the company has become a little untrustable.

Well I checked out Deluge and it's possibly the nicest client I've ever used, and fastest.

hehe xD. Qbittorrent is too if u don't overload it with a bijillion simultaneous transfers.

do not upgrade utorrent

Nothing

Oh right, because OP said not to upgrade from 2.2.1 so it made me wonder if there's something compromising about later versions

uTorrent 2.2.1 was the last iteration to not include ads. After that Bittorent Inc. also packaged a bitcoin miner and quickly removed it from the current version to avoid any more public repercussions. If you are using uTorrent 2.2.1 it's heavily outdated and insecure. You are better using an open platform client such as qBittorent or Deluge which are up to date and ad free.

Thanks for the advice!

Just switched over to Cox which is known to be more strict on piracy laws, so I was wondering:

Will they be able to send a DMCA notice for a download that's not through a torrent? For example, if I download off a file hosting website or right-click and save video as?

errmmmmm... I'm not a 100% sure but the chance of them catching you for direct downloading something is very very slim. You SHOULD be fine.

Extremely unlikely. Never heard of it actually. I used to use filehosters for years and never got an ISP copyright notice.

Honestly I have Cox and I've only gotten notices twice, both from torrents and both from Graphic Audio audiobooks (who are known to ruthlessly defend their copyright.) All it was was a notice saying "Hey stop doing this."

Aside from price, what advantages does Private Internet Access have over ExpressVPN? Express seems to be number one from most sources.

A very good post

I'm using the newest utorrent... whats wrong with it?

Have a read throuhg the comments. You're like the 50th person to ask me this :P (if you can't find it ask again and I'll tell you)

N, I found it a while ago. Sorry I didn't delete my comment.

Also, just to confirm, you don't need a vpn for kodi and exodus. Right?

nope

How do you often use Ccleaner? Do you usually update it every now and then?

I use the free version and update it whenever the app tells me there is an update avaliabe.

hai , just a simple question , why deluge is no.1 ? shouldnt be qbittorent be no 1 ?.

Subjective

OP clearly mentioned that the list is subjective. I like both clients equally but qBittorent plays nicely for me when I use the Android remote app.

Yeah I've been considering changing qbit to number 1 for some time now. Honestly it's just a matter of personal preference. They both work just fine.

Every time I use qbittorrent even if I am only downloading 1 torrent it brings my connection down from 280Mbps to around 20MBbps. Going to give Deluge a shot.

It could be your ISP throttling your connection, or the torrent might have and bad seed ratio.

I just wanted to make a quick post here to anyone looking to hack a 3ds. Do NOT do the cube ninja hack, do NOT follow some random guide you found on youtube. Use soundHAX.

Go to http://3ds.guide and follow the soundhax guide you will not be regretting it.

Get to know HDR is now publicly available without the need of HDR TV's or HDR Blu-Rays.

You can find this transfers at extratorrent.cc

Batman v Superman VISIONPLUSHDR-1000 [ 10.000 NITS PQ ST 2084 GRADING ] - MadVR 1000 NITS Output https://extraimage.net/image/2dsv https://extraimage.net/image/2dsA https://extraimage.net/image/2ds0

NEW 3D LUT FOR MADVR HDR PLAYBACK AND MORE MOVIE DETAILS THIS GRADING FIXES GAMMA LEVELS FOR A BALANCED HDR IMAGE. Compression is 25% Preserve HUE. Pure Power Gamma Display 1.80. Now HDR Transfers works as intended. No messy setups, it can actually work when you install MadVR and Lav Filters out of the box. You can choose display pure power gamma from 1.80 to 2.60. Of course lower gamma curves shows more realistic image. That's how HDR gamma works. Then you can rise or down saturation up to tastes. Movie comes balanced so you can up saturation where you like it. This kind of HDR movies can work with any panel in the world, from PC monitors to extreme TV's with high nits output. You just choose from 400 to up to any nits you want. Higher nits would result in higher HDR quality, though panels from today can only throw maximum 1200 nits. Higher Range, Gamut, HDR Contrast and Deeper blacks. VISIONPLUSHDR-1000 offers higher grading than HDR10 Movies and you DON'T NEED ANY HDR TV. It can be reproduced with MadVR HDR Software processing. Actual HDR TV's can't handle high nits HDR video due to the commercial ecosystem created to sell future TV Sets.

Something I've wondered, is downloading something through a "link" a safer alternative to using torrents in terms of potentially getting caught? I saw an app on my tablet that can download movies using links from Solarmovie so thats what made me think of it.

Does anyone here have a free copy of YNAB desktop version please?

Thanks

Is there a good torrent downloader for android?

yep have a look at the list. (libtorrent and flud)

Is that the newest Deezloader update?

latest deezloader is 2.2.0. r/deezloader for the dl

Here's a sneak peek of /r/deezloader using the top posts of all time!

errr no. I haven't updated that yet. I'll et around to it eventually. Sorry!

Just curious, how does primewire compare to other movie/tv streaming sites?

Never used it mate. Sorry

primewire is good because they have an active community, but if you want good content, subs, 720p etc. u should probably check

  • yesmovies.to

  • rainierland.is

  • fmovies.to

  • genvideos.com

  • pubfilm.com

squawkr.io notifies you when a scene release happens. Should go in Misc. as it's a useful tool, you don't have to keep on searching it just emails you when a movie you've flagged that you want to watch is released.

I'll try it out and add it if it is good. Sorry it took so long to reply.

So I am confused about how to go about installing windows 10 on my new PC. So if i just burn an ISO I get from some torrent site it will boot into it? And then I just run the tool kit in the sticky above? Thanks!

im having problem with torrent (speed) and i found out Google Drive is like the old Mega, big files (9.0GB++) and max speed when download.

my question is, is there any movie sharing sites that usually provide Google Drive download link. i try warez.bb but they dont normaly provide Google Drive.

There was an epic site that not only let you download from gdrive servers but also let you stream. Google shut it down though unfortunately so now it is gone. As for any sites that upload to gdrive I have no clue.

Which was this site?

Can't remember. Google shut it down ages ago. Sad times.

https://cs.rin.ru doesn't work from my end. I think it should be http

ty for this i'll change it right away.

piratebay is down, which site is the best do you think? I tried some above and they didn't work very well. One was just malware

Little late to reply but for the future, use http://extratorrent.cc/. Its definitely legit and is especially good for shows that aren't uploaded on The Pirate Bay.

it's fine for me...

Generally [torrent project] is a good one.

That site refused to give me a torrent file and only let me download a fake .isi

What are you clicking? You can even get the magnet link directly. Do you have an adblock?

Sorry nevermind, that was extratorrent. I can't get the Torrent Project page to load.

is safe play pirate games having internet connection? i playing RE7 cracked, and i like to chat with my friend meanwhile. but i need connection, i always play wireless off this games.

Block RE7 from going online in your firewall settings. You should be good after that

yes buy how i lock RE7? i not know how to find and lock, i go in to a list, with a lot of exe programs. i must choice to unlock the firewall for pubblic or private connection (mine is private) but in that list i not find RE7

Why is it bad to play pirated games with an internet connection?

Personally, I've never had to disconnect my internet. Depending on how the game is cracked, the game still may try to authenticate online which requires you to be offline for it to work. But that's just by best guess.

I'd surely add http://www.topinweb.com to music download sites. Have been using it for the last 5 years. Still works like hell.

Whats makes the latest version of Utorrent bad?

Heard they sold out to the NSA, least that was the news when I switched years ago

Does anyone know if PotPlayer can edit videos like VLC? I'm just looking for basic cropping features

Just google it buddy. I have no clue. I just use it to watch video.

If i were to torrent a game from 3dm, would an update patch from another cracker such as skidrow work with it?

I don't know if this has been asked here before, but does anyone know where I can watch live football/soccer/basketball matches for free? HD would be a huge plus.

google firstrow

I'm sorry to bother you, but is it MamaHD.com? That's the 1st result that showed up on my google search.

Where i can watch NBA live?

Kodi --> Pro Sport addon

If using Android, there is a app called Mobdro.

"Make sure not to update uTorrent past version 2.2.1". Whoops. I have update 7.9.9. Anyway to downgrade? Looked around for a legit installer, but to no avail.

You can find utorrent 2.2.1 in online

It is very old version

Instead you can try qbitorrent or deluge

They are free and ad free

Deluge has plug in support

Does 2.2.1 support Socks5 Proxy?

I don't know but qbitorrent has been supporting socks5 proxy for a long time. May be give it a shot . It's worth the shot

The link to the downgraded uTorrent is in the original post, here ya go.

Ah, shoot. My bad, I have BitTorrent. Is the new updated BitTorrent safe or should I switch to uTorrent?

Help! Any chance to link me with sites that will allow you to download magazines? Thanks in advance!

Honourable Mentions: bookzz, iBookPile, Textbook Search, epubbud, PDF-Giant - for magazines

Thanks for this. I can now actually access PDF-Giant but only once a day (boo!) :(

I have no idea buddy. Sorry

I think you're missing Kisscartoon on streaming sites it's from the same kissanime people but for cartoons

and maybe yts is worth a mention and corerepacks are good game repackers and they make a lot of anthology repacks

My PC got infested by really nasty viruses 1-2 weeks ago. I used Avast, Malwarebytes, Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit and Adwclean but it came back again and again.

So I want to do a clean install of Windows 10 again to make sure my pc and info is no longer in danger. How do I do it? I am currently using an unactivated Win 10, upgraded from windows 7. If the links aren't allowed here you could allways PM me.

Type in windows 10 accessibility.

Nuke that stuff from orbit! Do you have a second pc?

Unfortunately I don't have another PC.

Someone suggested I do a scan in safe mode but my pc just rebooted itself halfway through the scan, it was late at night so I didn't do another one.

Ok then try out hitman pro. It's a last resort for virus removal. Get back to me when you are done

Sorry for the late reply, I tried out the Hitman Pro but it found nothing, just some Microsoft Edge cookies. I am now trying to use tronscript from /r/TronScript to make sure I'm clean. I haven't gotten a virus notification from avast since last 2 days so maybe I'm already clean but better be safe than sorry.

Yeah run that but i think you are clean!

Thats what I'm hoping.

One of the best posts i have seen. Still hope i had seen it sooner. Crap. Thanks op, you made my day!

Hehe. Thank you.

Will any of the free VPN options help avoid getting caught tormenting. If not what are the best precautions I could take to avoid getting caught without paying?

Windscribe i think is good. Until then make sure to be wary of downloading any extremely popular torrents (movies) and try to direct download things when you can.

I'm mostly going to be downloading software, would that make any difference?

Use it for personal uses only

Great post!

Is there something that will notify me when a movie is released on blu ray?

Yep. Check near the bottom of the post.

marauder is down bro

Yeah I removed it :(

i'd give all my silver for a replacement

Check the bottom. Sqwark.io is pretty good.

You mean Marauder's Multiplex?

Where's "thepiratebay" on that list?! All i knew about piracy was the bay! But thanks anyway!

Pirate bay isn't on the list because there are some fake stuff on it, can't remember or find source, but yeah.

so my vegas is missing some files and crashes now and then when i try to use some features, where can i get these files without downloading vegas again and cracking it

I have no clue buddy. Sorry.

i fixed it tho don't worry it was about the text media thing, i just used legacy and now im mint

YAY!

Does popcorn time still work? Yes or no, is there a similar program that is better on streaming torrents?

Yes

Is there a way to see the download location of http://openloadmovies.net/movies/nocturnal-animals-2016/ for example? You can see the download button and it downloads and everything, and funnly location is googlevideo for most of videos, though the exact location can't be seen. I will try with some download managers, but I can't of doubt. It should be some more sophisticated way to see this.

What I would like to do is upload mp4 videos via remote download on Openload, so I don't have to download and upload it again.

Why shouldn't you go past uTorrent 2.1.1?

whats a good game piracy site that's up to date right now?

Fitgirl and igg

Anyone know a place to find a download for Microsoft Office 2016 Pro? Doesn't need to be cracked, I can just use an activator

Can someone find me a link to download/torrent Dead Space 2 Pc?

Most of the sites doesnt have the game as it was quite a old game.

[removed]

Is there any way to play torrented games which usually require Steam to play? Thanks

Not too sure about what you are asking exactly. Those games should be already cracked or a folder should accompany the download, where the crack resides. If it's the second copy the content of the crack folder and paste them into your game installation. If there isn't any crack, try searching online for it. Keep in mind that if it is a very recent or an online multiplayer only video game there might not be a crack.

My bad, i pasted the exe file only and not the dll's from the crack so none of the games i tried worked. lol thanks anyway

ummmm yes? isn't that the point of cracked/torrented games?

Can anyone help me with any possible websites names(not a direct link, of course) where I can find "Mathematics - The Core Course for A Level"? I've searched on Google, libgen, irc etc and haven't found anything, expect for a preview on Google Books, but a lot of the pages aren't displayed. I really need this book and it's surprising that I can't find it online when the first edition came out in 1981.

So should you purchase a vpn service to download torrents now??

I have downloaded a lot of music torrents over the years and have never hid my ip address

i downloaded a stupid amount of shit for years and years. then one time downloaded the movie focus, and got a letter from my ISP, then downloaded an episode of shameless...got a letter. got hide.me VPN and never happened again

Usually depends where you live. I live in the US and I knew a good amount of friends who got notices from their ISP, luckily I haven't yet. I chose not to risk getting that

By purchasing a vpn? Damn unless I do ALOT of downloading is it worth it?

I'd say so, especially if your using public internet. If you use public internet, sometimes there are some people who try to sniff your packets, so if you are checking your bank account, without a VPN, they can access your account. I forgot where I got the source. I could recommend Windscribe. Use the promo code for 50GBFREE for free 50GB/month.

https://windscribe.com/?affid=lfk2yg4o

They do log bandwidth, but they do delete it. That's the founder btw

https://www.reddit.com/r/beermoney/comments/5eudzg/vpn_50gb_monthly_free_lifetime_with_code_normally/dafrd54/?st=iz6b0jok&amp;sh=50df984e

Im not using public internet.. Huh? Lol.. Using my own in internet from my own home.. Will look into that.. Its a free program? Sorry I just don't understand what the 50gb a month means..

When I meant was free Wi-Fi so I'm talking about places such as starbucks, public libraries, or any public place that provides free Wi-Fi. I use a laptop so yeah, if I want to torrent at my university, technically they can't catch me tormenting pirated stuff, if they do ask, I can say I'm installing a big game like DOOM as an example, for me I would need it. Its a free program, but you need a subscription for it. And when as for the 50gb, you get to use up to 50 gb worth of data under your subscription, but after that you would have to wait until next month. Sorry for the confusion

Cheers for the voucher!!!

you should use a vpn to torrent for safety. It also depends on where you live and your country's piracy laws.

What is Deezloader??

it's a specially-made program which masterfully handcrafted to download your personally-selected tracks at deezer, an underrated version of music streaming platform similar to that of spotify.

TL;DR: black magic

I was actually pretty surprised as it had a lot of trance music that I wanted to download dating back years. I'd like to know more if Deezer shook hands with Spotify or any other major downloading/streaming services or deals with labels themselves. Either way, pretty awesome. Torrent is sadly slowly dying for music and rutracker is probably the only decent one still standing. Streaming is the future.

yeah dude you should go for deezloader if you look for 320kbps classic trance. deezloader is definitely my first go-to

I was very doubtful of being it legit, so I checked the spectrum of some of the files from deezer and ones from beatport and it turns out they are either very similar or ones from deezer actually cuts off a little higher than ones from beatport.

ELI5 pls

Files downloaded with deezloader are either the same quality or very slightly higher quality compared to ones from Beatport.

black magic

It really is

People often want to download their entire spotify playlist but don't want mediocre quality. So they convert it to a Deezer track and download it directly through Deezloader. You can check out /r/deezloader and their wiki.

I am having trouble finding Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator on a torrent site with ratings above like 2.2/5. I assume 2.2/5 means that there's something wrong with the file etc. so I should not go for something with that low rating, even if there are like 30-50 seeders, is that correct? And if that is correct, is it just impossible to get these programs because Adobe actively takes down their programs from these sites or something?

Please help if you've got a minute, I have never torrented before and this is pretty strange to me.

Don't pirate Adobe programs. Download them directly through adobe.com as trials and then crack them.

Follow this guide in how to download them, and then check the first post in how to activate them.

[removed]

How do I activate my Windows 10? I recently built my PC and download the unactivated version from the Microsoft website. I've tried KMSpico, it didn't work. Can anyone PM me links or tell me what to do?

if you only tried once, try again

else there are alternatives, search for "windows activator" on tpb, don't know if links are allowed here.

I have a question about multiplayer access in Diablo 3 if one has a pirated copy. I didn't know where else to ask (and definitely not in the D3 subreddit), so hopefully I could drop this here.

Basically, I want to play Diablo 3 with my cousin, but the thing is, she's in another country where games don't come cheap and piracy is practically second nature, so naturally her copy of D3 is pirated. I haven't bought the game yet myself. But if I did, would I be able to connect with her despite mine being a "legal" copy while hers isn't?

Question about https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/

I was thinking about buying a Subscription here since Hide My Ass keeps logs, what kind of information do these people keep other than payment information used to pay them obviously?

If in theory someone used their service like described here https://torrentfreak.com/vpn-providers-no-logging-claims-tested-in-fbi-case-160312/ To commit a illegal crime, even with court order would they hand over logs that could be traced back to the user?

Obviously I wouldn't use it for such, but just curious because I would truly like a VPN that keeps zero logs the way it should be by ISP's anyways.

If in theory someone used their service like described here https://torrentfreak.com/vpn-providers-no-logging-claims-tested-in-fbi-case-160312/ To commit a illegal crime, even with court order would they hand over logs that could be traced back to the user?

Yes of course. They can be subpoena'd and hand over the feds if they store any logs. Timestamp logs, bandwidth logs, payment services, etc... Although PIA stores IP logs, many other popular VPNs don't and if they receive a court order or subpoena, they'd be empty handed.

Thanks any Idea if PIA stores logs, or any VPN's that store no logs at all or have any requirement to I hear that in the U.S VPN Services are not required to store any logs therefore if someone served them a court order they would simply be like "We have no logs" we don't log our services, or hand over logs but with a bunch of users connected to the service with a bunch of IP addresses?

You can check out the Simple VPN Comparison Chart for info on VPNs that long.

Although I'd be wary and verify with each VPN's ToS and FAQ. Pretty much every popular VPN is shilling on Reddit and tech support forums.

Why KaOs & BlackBox not on the list? Both of them are good repackers. CPY & Codex should have their own section as best scene groups.

yeah ill get to that eventually. thanks for the suggestions

If I download a repacked game, will the game's graphics be worse?

No. It's only compressed and it's decompressed when installing so there's no difference to the real game!

Oh, thanks! So will anythin degrade in quality?

dude he just told you no...

Well I first asked him if the GRAPHICS would go down, and he said no, but then there are many other things to a video game- like audio, cutscenes, resolution and stuff

Oh, sorry. Here you go then:

No. It's only compressed and it's decompressed when installing so there's no difference to the real game!

Of course it always depends on the source. If you want nothing stripped from the game, fitgirl's repacks is great but always read the description for further info.

Okay, thank you! I'm sorry if I'm being annoying, but I have one more doubt. Then why would people download non-repacked versions of the game, if the repacked versions are smaller and has no loss in quality?

Not an expert but I guess because people want to download games as soon as they come out and since repackers take some time to compress them they lose that initial burst of traffic.

Others maybe don't trust repackers or just download the torrent with the most seeders which would probably be the scene release since it gets picked up first.

oh, okay. Thank you!

I hate the long installation times, takes up to 2 hours. For me i prefer non repacked games because i have 8tb of drive space and 500 mbps internet, so everything downloads really fast

oh god im jealous i have a 1mbps connection, and 500 gb of space

Only 1 mbps? where do you live?

India, a true shithole :(

I always thought india had decent internet speeds

Yes, and he is lying. JIO offers 20mbps + everywhere in India (even remotest places). Guess he is just ignorant, or a 12 yo.

Well, in some places, yes. But where I live, my ISP calls my internet speed "blazing fast". And I'm not half-exaggerating on that one.

Hey don't be calling your own country a shithole. I love India!

well yeah, true :) but i hate India's internet

fair nf. It's not the fastest. But then again neither is Australia's... :(

be nice to the noob, not everyone has a masters in napster

no...

Why do you suggest not downloading utorrent past version 2.2.1?

It turned into a shitty program that tries to have a shitload of addons

A good site to dl apps like Warez-bb(who's always down)??

Any assassins creed out there without hardcoded subs?

Hey! Is there a better way to get spotify premium on android than the basic crack apps? Like no root but online mode etc?

you don't need to root to get the cracked apks... But no, not that I'm aware of. You could always try the cracked deezer apks too if you want offline stuff. Also think about buying spotify premium family account with 5 of your mates. It comes down to like $3 a month for an AWESOME service.

That's great advice thanks! I'm currently on a cracked apk with no access to money. Maybe when I go to college!

I just got Spotify for my desktop. I downloaded the modified hosts file and followed instructions... I'm still getting ads. Can someone else?

just get ezblocker

Search up hosts file for blocking ads. There should be an updated one that blocks all current spotify ads.

The host file that's linked in the post was updated in January of 2017.

So... I don't know. It does say it "works on mobile", but the host file is for Windows, so I'm confused.

Mobiles also have hosts files which can be edited just like windows.

yup let me know if you figure this one? I have paid version for like a month more cost I got it for like 4 months for a dollar :)

Direct Download

Oh man, how i missed this.

I honestly prefer to direct dl, especially with the shit storm AUS is under with constantly evolving/devolving piracy laws.

Does anyone use pirate bay anymore? :)

Does anyone use pirate bay anymore? :)

Only for some older stuff

im saying that most people can probably figure out how to download a cracked version of the application. "Smart cookeis" is just an expression.

Im a complete retard but don't want to make a new thread about this. Uhhh, how do i install a pirated os? i have all the parts for my pc and someone has a legit key for me but im not too certain how to do the actual installing of the os

Buddy what os do you want to install? You'll have to create bootable installation drive (USB with os on it). Simply search it up on YouTube for step by step instructions. If you want to install win 10 you don't even need to pirate it. You can still get win 10 accessibility version for free!

ty, i got it to work out. appreciate it.

YAY!

download media creation tool from microsoft, press buttons to make it download legit windows 10 for you and create bootable usb. Boot from usb and follow directions.

ty, i got it to work out. appreciate it.

anyone knows about this site: http://opensample.info/ Here is its intro: "Hi there! Ever wondered why publishers charge so much money for scientific articles? And charge from readers and authors. Well, there are good news: we are trying to make all those articles accessible either completely free, or at cost of supporting infrastructure (yeah, that is at least an order of magnitude cheaper than Elsevier charges). This is just a start (hence a name), but there will be more, stay tuned. Oh, and dont mind incomplete and buggy OCR, get the PDF. Maybe it is finally time to finish what Aaron Swartz did not. Science, peace."

Great post

I use fmovies.to and popcorn time

YAY!

I'm new to this, so, excuse my ignorance but, would I need to install a torrent in order to play the game?

Ok so here goes. There is no such thing as installing a torrent. A torrent is just a means to download certain files (e.g. games). In order to download a torrent you need to download a torrent client. Game repackers are simply groups that compress or pack up a have that you can download and install. Before you download anything I would suggest reading up about this subject and becoming better informed. There is a high chance you will do something silly otherwise.

Thank you, I will definitely look up everything and learn about it.

yay

step 1: download torrent client. I suggest qbittorent. This is your torrent downloader.
Step 2: find torrents to download! (https://rarbg.to/torrents.php, http://fitgirl-repacks.site/) Step 3: download your torrent and open it with qbittorent or click the little magnet icon which will tell qbittorent to grab it directly. Step 4: choose a location to download the files and that's it, all you need to do is wait for it to finish downloading.

Thank you for everything and the websites.

My pleasure. If you need any more help just ask.

Love all the streaming websites. But holy crap, why are the volume of their contents so freaking low?

Yeah I find that a little annoying.

Remember to use an ad-blocker.

Nope, but I just upgraded to Windows 8 thinking I could go back to 7 via UpToDown.

I got it from GetIntoPc, the N version can't be activated, so something like this would be better- http://getintopc.com/softwares/operating-systems/windows-7-ultimate-32-64-iso-jan-2017-download/

Daz loader from mydigitallife.info

I used this the other day it works like a charm! 2.2.2

I don't really know if you take "requests" but could you please add http://getcomics.info/ for comic books (probably under misc). It's not that I don't love answering a post a day about where to get free comics even though they could just search the subreddit /s but it would make it easier for people to find. I am in no way affiliated with http://getcomics.info/ btw

I'll have a look at the website. If it's good I'll add it. Ty for the suggestion.

this is the one thread i have waited for so long... This is so useful... even if you are into piracy for a few years there is still some new info on here. Thank you for that. Pls never unpin or delete the thread.

Thank you for the kind words

There's also G4TW, I use them whenever I feel like playing me some The Sims. Forum staff are all super nice.

Is there an updated version of the irc guide or one for using an android?

Couldn't find what I wanted on any of those top sites

huh... No there isn't. Sorry mate but you'll just have to scan the web for alternatives, it shouldn't be too hard. Good luck.

Hello, could you take a look at Radarr (for movies) its a fork of Sonarr, i;ve found it much better to use than couch potato. it works and looks very much the same as Sonarr.

huh, seems cool. I'll have a look at it. Thanks for the reccomendation.

You're welcome, its still in its infancy but im enjoying it a great deal :P

Could anyone PM me with the links for ExtraTorrent and watchepisodes?

Also, why is Potplayer considered better than VLC?

Thanks :)

Read up on it, there are plenty of web articles on the subject. Also remember that these lists are based on my personal preferences and experiences. I myself find potplayer an awesome lightweight player that sutis my uses.

On windows, MPC-HC is pretty good and I sometimes favor it over VLC depending on media formats/content I'm watching... there's a great GPU-dependant video renderer called MadVR which works well with MPC-HC (including potplayer) and other players as mentioned on their main site...

I use the default MadVR settings on my low end machine and it was a noticeable difference when comparing video played on VLC and stock MPC-HC.... if you have a higher-end machine/GPU, it seems to provide even a better/subjective experience. Apparently, very popular addon for those in the Anime community.

Also, why is Potplayer considered better than VLC?

No idea, I prefer to use VLC.

Would you please add CCMaker 1.2.1 to the list. It's an application which automatically downloads, installs and cracks updated versions of all Adobe CC apps (Photoshop, Illustrator etc.). [ORIGINAL THREAD] [REDDIT POST]

I don't add stuff unless I've used it personally. So give me a few weeks to test this out. If it's good I'll add it on.

Thanks for giving it a chance! I found it by accident and was pretty surprised when it worked just like that. I like that you actually test stuff before adding them in the megathread. Have a nice day!

Ty not try lol

Try.

Is there a crack for getting Discord Nitro accounts yet?

No. And I hope there never is. Discrod is a great service that I truly LOVE. They were loosing money in order to get us the service initially and they deserve whatever funds they get from nitro. Sorry if I sounded like bit of a dickhead there.

Anyone know any good tiny windows based operating systems? I installed Tiny7 but it doesn't have SP1 -.-

This doesn't really concern piracy but I hope you get your answer!

p.s. If you're only using this as a way to give an old system some extra years of life I would suggest using Linux Mint instead. It is a great desktop environment that is stable and constantly updated.

are there any good sites/forums out there that post games/movies/shows etc? (preferably with filefactory)

Tehparadox. Though I'm not sure if the have music. Check out the forum anyway.

/u/Klappa4Me pls dont delete this thread.. im just saving this in my reddit account. tyvm

Save the source if you're afraid of deletion. Not that it will but..

There is no way in deleting this.

You know what i love the most about pirating and all of that stuff, keygens usually have some great music.

Fucking annoying music you mean. I hate it when 8 have to search for the stop music option. One keygen didn't even have that. Had to turn off my speaker.

Lol

bless yr soul, haven't heard of some of these

I sold my soul to the devil ages ago.

nah, demons don't share ;)

Who says I'm sharing. I'm just doing the devils work and corrupting your souls. Muhahahaha...

PS-- what about mac stuff? audiobooks?

and 1000+ soulseek, been using it since like, 2004?

Sorry buddy but I have used osx very much so I can't really recommend anything for Mac.

Having problems with Mircosoft Toolkit. I activated Windows 10 more than a year ago but now I have the Activate Windows watermark. When I try to activate using the toolkit i get this: http://imgur.com/a/FbAOY

I have no clue what's going on there buddy. Sorry. Try starting a new thread.

also -audiobookbay.

Great thread guys!

I usually search for last cinema releases, but seems impossible to find Trainspotting 2 and Logan, maybe for Logan is too early.

Reaching here, but what is the last Photoshop suite I can use easily? I recall them making it that you have to sign in online and had to keep the previous version because of that.

You can use the latest Photoshop suite easily!!

Even with a mac?

As far as I an aware, yes.

Thanks what program should I looking for after I get the trial? And is there a guide for mac?

For Mac look for the adobe zii patcher. Sorry I can't link you it, that goes against forum rules.

Thank you that info is good enough

I used AMT Emu on Mac and it worked fine with the latest version. The md5s for the files are on this sub, so it's just up to you to find a download link

Tell me how it goes.

My bad using a Mac .

Lol a little help the link he sent me was for windows I believe

??

Like I saw a how to guide to install it on Windows but didn't see one for mwf. Sorry if I'm asking for too much.

Have you personally used the free options that you listed? Which is the best?

My friend told me Private Internet Access is the best VPN if you can afford it, do you agree? If it is worth the money I'd be willing to pay for it but I want a second opinion.

IMO windscribe is the best free VPN. 50gb plus I've never had any problems with it.

I haven't used PIA but they do have a money back policy so there is no harm in giving then a go.

I can vouch for Windscribe as well. I picked up a lifetime license on sale a while back and I've never had any problems with it.

Can I add a pirated game to Steam if I bought it? I have pirated GTAV and I have the ISO. My internet sucks, so I wonder if I could install the pirated version, not copy the crack and then add it to Steam.

Can I skip downloading the original game this way?

Nope sorry that won't work.

Excuse me? Why would that not work? If the game ISO is original and is bundled with a crack, then why can't he use that ISO with Steam? What he is saying is that if he buys it and adds the key to the steam, can he use the existing pirated GTA V without having to download 50GB again. To my understanding the answer is yes - If he puts the already installed GTA V into the installation folder that Steam creates, then Steam will re-check files and obtain the ones he's missing (if any) and update as necessary.

It honestly depends on the game and on what iso he has downloaded. Copy pasting into the steamapps directory is very unlikely to work right away. His best chance is to paste it in there and try the "verify integrity of game cache" option in steam and hope steam picks it up. Even in best case situations I fear that the download will be in excess of 10gb.

Well I've done it in case of Witcher 3 and Far Cry 4 so I'd say it works but I don't really remember how much I had to re-download. All in all aren't the files more or less the same? I don't really know why you would have to re-download several gb's of data when that data generally is graphics, art and thelike which definitely shouldn't be different regardless of the version. (like uplay vs Steam for example).

Witcher has no DRM so pirarted versions should be exactly the same as legit versions. I'm not sure about far cry 4 though.

marauders multiplex is down the last few days, so do anyone have recommended for alternative?

Dude link /r/deezloader, why is the old outdated version which doesn't even work still on the list?

I updated the link like 2 weeks ago...

I recently found a website that has a ton of ebooks, lots of graduate level textbooks specifically. It's called 'soek.online'. Most of the posts are hosted onnitroflare, where you can use a vpn chrome extension to curtail the download time limit to get many ebooks at a time.

Have anyone else used this and can confirm it's safe? I'm having a hard time going in to random websites, don't want to get rekt by ransomware or something else shit

Actually after looking around some more, that website is just a mirror of avaxhome, its perfectly fine.

what good 3ds roms torrent site are there?

I just use reliable .cia direct downloads via fileshare hosts posted on 3dsiso. Requires registration, but the community is good.

Why would you need any? Just download games with freeShop if you're on CFW. If you're not, time to get on CFW .. Unless you're using Sky3DS on 11.3 .. Then I feel bad for you.

Distrox, do you mean CFW on 3ds? That sounds freaking amazing, i LOVE the 3ds.

Yes, 3DS or N3DS. What I said about Sky3DS and 11.3 though is because 11.3 cannot be hacked as of yet, and possibly never. If you have 11.2 or less then you can hack it, but once hacked you can update to 11.3 and beyond.

Check out [the guide](www.3ds.guide) for well, a guide.

I have pirated some software a couple of days ago, and because im an idiot, the software somehow knew it was pirated and linked it to my name (dont ask how). The problem is, the CEO of the company that made the software has now messaged me on facebook (small company) and said i had to purchase a license and send them the purchise ID. If i didn't comply within a week, they would take legal action. Is this true? can i be prosecuted, or is it unlikely? I live in the Netherlands btw.

Hey, what software you got though? Maybe I can help you.

Mate I have nor the skill or the experience to answer this question. Start a new thread.

Only a lawyer can answer that satisyifngly.

It does seem unlikely, and he'd be hard pressed to prove that it was actually you who downloaded the program, and not someone else with your computer. It's possible that's irrelevant depending on your countries' laws though. Hopefully you haven't even answered him - don't say anything, as it can be used against you. My guess is that he's trying to scare you into paying, and that he can't/won't actually do much.

any sites or forums without blocked registration that host 3D software? Looking for something very specific I can't find any working uploads, torrents or whatever for.

You'll be hard-pressed in finding anything better than CGPeers. Unfortunately they do have closed registration but they open their doors twice a week.

You can get an invite over at /r/invites if someone wishes to give you an invite!

HEY!!!! Does anyone know of a good SOLIDWORKS 2014 torrent? With serial key and activator?! I've seen a few, but the process of installation w/o internet was extremely complicated. A proper version + decently easyto understand guide would be incredible. I've got some design projects due today and I'm furiously searching!!!!!

Sorry buddy but this isn't the place to be asking this.

gotcha

The admitting bit is fine. You just aren't allowed to ask for pirated content. :)

Just out of curiosity where is the right place to ask for such content? lol

No clue! Just search up your queries online. There's bound to be a solution. Also have a look at tehparadox.

Looking to download some music, can't find everything on TPB which is my go-to torrent site.

Rutracker is also down I think. Any alternatives?

I usually download from YouTube, depending on the site you might have to change the file format to mp3 though.

I used to do Youtube as well, until I tried Spotify for free.

Spotify made me realize that album-quality files are actually much better than Youtube quality files, since Youtube compressed audio a lot. Obviously I didn't want to buy Spotify so I just started torrenting albums.

Use spotify free like me in a month. BUT DONT buy Spotify, if you like having spare money. (10 bucks? I could buy 4 bags of Doritos for that!)

Have you tried deezloader?

Cool app but lacks small details like showing your download speed or the music file's size.

Either that or the shit I'm downloading is so obscure that the app can't find any info and also won't show the bitrate since it can't download properly.

Soulseek

add SVP 4.0 to must have apps: it's an app for watching movies and videos at 60 fps

and popcorn time

I'm surprised Tribler isn't on the list for suggested clients. It's not the fastest but with anonymous hopping it is safer then a good chunk of clients. Plus it has built in file sharing if you want to check out what people are offering.

Oh yeah.. that thing. I totally forgot about it!

So where can I download full music albums?

soulseek

anyone happen to have an uploaded.net login i could use?

Will using a VPN keep my university from knowing that I'm pirating things on their internet? The punishment is very severe for illegal downloading, and the school enforces it.

it does

Thats what I do. I know a guy in the networking department and we're just on a list of VPN users, but theres nothing wrong with that. They can't do anything.

Why risk it?

Is there a large risk?

Double secret probation.

Free shit, obviously

Yes, VPN will hide your torrenting activities from the school. But there are some schools that also block VPNs altogether or block common VPN ports. Some go as far as leaving only a few ports open. If you are not sure, it's best to go with the provider that can bypass everything lol. You can get more info on torrenting at school and bypassing school firewalls in this article.

Am I a bad person for wishing that Adrian Leatherland gets Lou Gehrig's disease?

yes.

Just wondering, how are pages like bookzz.com (trying to) make money? Am interested in their business model. Also wondering for platforms like issuee, which is full of pirated material. For both, there seems no obvious business model, like file hosting.

anyone else having problems with kat/pirateproxy? the sites aren't loading for me.

great thread thanks wheres a good site for 4k movies thanks

I've just signed up for PrivateInternetAccess, If I'm using their default application am I using OpenVPN by default? If not, how/should I even bother switching to it?

So I'm pretty new to this, and I'm wondering just how good the opera browsers vpn is? If I did illegally download a software/game or torrented something, would it be enough or would I need something else?

Any specific reason why I shouldn't use any version of uTorrent past 2.2.1?

uTorrent used to be one of the greats. In recent times, however, it has slowly become a cancerous piece of "software" that acts maliciously towards users, e.g. bitcoin mining, spying, intrusive ads. It betrays the nature of good sumaritan file sharing, and thankfully, there are plenty of amazing free and open source alternatives that have similar looks and feels, e.g. qBittorrent (my favorite) and Deluge.

So yup, avoid uTorrent at all cost.

This mega thread helped me a lot. I didn't know where else to ask this but all my usual sources for finding files is coming up short (custom google search that looks through filesharing uploads, mobilism, torrents, private torrents, etc). I'm looking for the following book:

"The strange death of liberal England" by George Dangerfield.

Anybody can help me out?

inspect element is probably your friend. try looking through the page source for a .pdf or .epub file

Problem Solved!

Found file on openlibrary --> borrowed --> downloaded adobe digital editions 2.0 --> followed this user guide instructing how to strip the DRM from rented/borrowed books.

Some things were outdated so I had to find copies of older tools/programs elsewhere. Since I didn't need to convert, I think the plugin automatically stripped it as soon as I loaded the book into adobe digital edition.

Satisfied customer.

Greenbud1969's upload of Tommy Boy on TPB is being monitored by ip echelon. Just a little heads-up.

Thanks! You've been very helpful. :)

you're welcome. Helpful is what I strive to be. And awesome... gotta always be awesome :P

Is there any quick way to download each song in an album? I've been either using youtubemp3 for each individual song (takes long) or downloading the whole album (short, but makes switching songs irritating)

  1. Torrent the album (whole album, individual songs)
  2. Download using Deezloader

Hope this helped :p

So I'm setting up my PC but Windows 10 won't stop giving me blue screens. Where can I get a 100% legit copy of W10's ISO to try and reinstall?

Thanks! Now how would I download that without providing a key ?

You don't need a key (as far as I know). It's legit and free directly from microsoft!

I don't know if this belongs here, hopefully someone can answer me. How do Windows piracy work? I looked up a bit of info and an OEM can only be installed on one machine or your motherboard while a retail can be installed how,many times you want but activated on one pc. The thing is that many people but or use the same activation key when using a pirated key or one that has been leaked. If I sold my keys a few times would multiple people be able to use them?

I'm not that educated on Windows piracy but I've done my fair share of it. Typically Windows is activated by connecting to Microsoft's servers. The best way to pirate Windows currently is software that can spoof Windows to activate with a locally running fake activation server. Unmodified copies of Windows won't activate with a key that has already been used on the Microsoft servers so don't sell used keys.

Exactly, it's extremely common to use fake KMS-services to keep both windows and microsoft office activated.

It's easy and fast, and have worked well since windows 8, still going strong with all new updates from what i've heard

Damn. That goes my goal of selling 10 Windows keys .

Best VPN service should be subjective imo. PIA is just plainly horrible.

Are there any movie streaming sites that have a larger selection of arthouse-y or older movies? Criterion collection type stuff.

You need private trackers for that.

Any posts about this? What do private trackers entail?

I want to hear everyone's thoughts on cryptostorm. They seem to be a very good service and all the buzz is just about one of their devs. What do people think of this service?

OP is still replying to the comments and helping everyone! Kudos for your efforts! :)

Is there any good site/market for getting apk+data for paid apps or modded apks?

Mobilism or alphagamers

Hey OP can you please relink the Russian guide for Rutracker and Vk . It seems to be deleted

/u/Klappa4Me add corepack in honourable repackers!! and add voksi for online cracks

Why is Private Internet Access so trusted/popular? I am considering them. I use NordVPN now.

nordvpn is still better than PIA. don't migrate.

What's so different about NordVPN? besides the price tag.

honestly in terms of access not much, i can't remember if PIA bypasses proxy blocking of netflix and similar, but nordvpn does. but there is a legal thing, in that nord vpn is located in panama while pia is part of the "five eyes" which, if you look online, can be really annoying > dangerous

Buddy, I am not the best source for this. Read up on articles online or check /r/VPN

I've finished installing a CFW on my 3DS, how do i actually download games onto it, and do i need to use a computer to do so?

Hello man. I have something for you: Either way you install the .cia "Freeshop" https://freeshop.pw/

Or you install the Programm CIAngel If you google it you'll find it I'm pretty sure. And they are really easy to use. Freeshop is build like a normal eShop and CIAngel is just like a search machine where you type in a game download it and install it via FBI. :)

thank you!

There are enough Turorials on Youtube :)

I've played Zelda: Oracle of Ages on my computer with an emulator, can i move the save file from my computer to my 3DS, so i can Play Oracle of Ages where i left off on my 3DS?

If you're still looking for answer you can play gbc/gba/ds roms on your 3ds using flashcards, I personally own a supercard dstwo and it works great. You might be able to use a homebrew but I haven't messed around with that yet.

I actually beat it on my PC already, so there's no need now <:D Thanks though!

as far as i know... no. Not yet at least.

dang, thanks though

Do you guys know where to mirror download link?

I mean, if I want someone to mirror my torrent link to another cloud storage like Google Drive or such, where will I go to?

Torrent download speed in my place is extremely suck.

Best site for old tv shows?? My husband keeps wanting the old stuff like Quantum Leap and Murder She Wrote and Dallas but all I can find in my torrent searches is either foreign copies or it can't be found. It's frustrating spending an hour searching every site for a show that can't be found.

https://torrentz2.eu looks like it has that show

Not sure why my post is not being shown, but anyone know a premium link generator that you buy some GB to use in different hosts, and they do not expire, instead of a weekly/monthly subscription?

Anyone know a place to get windows 7 with a key so I can upgrade it to windows 10 free?

You can get windows 10 directly from microsoft. Google it.

I use KMSPico. I even inadvertently upgraded my pirated windows 8.1 to a legit version of windows 10. May I ask if KMS Pico is still recommended or not?

yep. Works great. Though I prefer using Microsoft toolkit.

KMSpico is still a popular choice! Just make sure you got your copy from MyDigitalLife forums.

I use KMSpico for my Windows 10 no issues at all, if it doesn't work or you want to try something else you could always try the other popular one Microsoft Toolkit. Just be sure to get either one from MyDigitalLife forums!

Does anyone know how to get the QuickBooks Activator by BEAST to work on Windows 10? Or of any method to activate QB 2016 Enterprise on Win10 that is confirmed to work?

I use solarmovie.sc exclusively to watch tv shows, it's amazing. Television level quality and shows are on it within an hour or two of it being aired. I logged on today and it redirected me to solarmoviez.to and told me it was a bad gateway. Tried again a bit later and the main page loaded, but when I tried to go to a show it gave me a bad gateway again. Anyone else having this problem? I don't really know where else to go if it's down.

as far as i can tell solarmovie has switched domain to solarmoviez.to. There are bound to be hiccups on the initial switch. As of right now I am getting the same thing. :(

I can live with that as long as it goes back to being usable. I understand these sites have to switch domains from time to time but now I'm spoiled from how awesome it is and will be sad if I have to go back to sites where you try to find the link that gives you the least viruses.

same :(

yeah got the same :(, but it is like 10 min ago

Anyone else having problems with the solarmovies and 123movieshd recently. I haven't been able to access solarmovies and the 123 has been working only part of the time

Not for me. I just get error 505 bad gateway. :(

Are there any good programs to convert a Spotify playlist to mp3?

I would use SoulSeek/Deezloader to get all the songs manually but the playlist contains about >150 songs so I can't really do it manually as it will take a long time.

You can use Soundizz to convert your spotify playlist to deezer then just copy paste the deezer playlist into deezloader. Takes about 15 mins.

Anyone know k2s leecher that supports 1GB free transfer? Must download.

Does anyone know where to download "Mass Effect: Nexus Uprising" book? Thank you.

Nah there are heaps. Try looking in the chrome store for extensions that do that.

Something interesting and marvelous happened last night. I got Windows 10 for free.

I have 2013 Vaio that originally had windows 7 Home. I gave my laptop to my brother as I got a new one. I got it back a few weeks ago since he didnt need it anymore and mine was broken. I did a fresh install with windows 7 ultimate (cracked).

I noticed the Viao was running slow so I decided to see how it would run with windows 10. I had learned that I could install win 10 and use it a for a bit before requiring a key.

I ran the ISO file via set.up application, and didnt go the fresh install way. a few updates, and installations later, the put product key screen never showed up.

Just to clarify, after the laptop restarted once the installation was complete, no other screen popped up. I was curious as to what happened I typed "activation" on the Start button search bar, clicked and it read.

Edition: Windows 10 Pro ACtivation: Windows is activated with a digital license.

How did this happen?

Your Windows 7 ultimate was activated with a loader which doesn't crack your copy but rather make it genuine. Microsoft offered Windows 10 to all Windows 7 users and through digital entitlement, since your copy of Windows 7 was genuine, your Windows 10 also becomes genuine since it was activated.

For more information, check out Microsoft's article on digltal entitlement

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12440/windows-10-activation

It's true, the loader made Windows 7 genuine however, Microsoft offered Windows 10 to all windows 7 users with a deadline. That was a year after they downloaded windows 10 file.

However, i did the fresh install only a couple of months ago, rendering the offer Microsoft made to a free upgrade useless. 'Since the offer to Windows 7 users expired in July or August of 2016, a year after the release of Windows 10.

Just because the deadline ended, doesn't mean the offer expired. Any currently Windows 7 user can still upgrade to Windows 10 through Microsoft's assisitive technology portal.

I won't be surprised if Win7 pushed out a vaio specific update to show you a Windows 10 upgrade prompt.

Sony VAIO even has an upgrade portal for Windows 10.

What are Netflix cookies?

magic!

I'm not an expert but I'm like 50% certain the Netflix uses cookies to verify if a user a logged in. If you get the specific cookie from a legit account you can log into that account with having to know the username and pass. That is probably a really bad and wrong explanation but it's all I know.

Basically cookies from users who have paid plan and you can use the same cookie to be able to watch Netflix content without user/pass.

Wow really. Have you tried it? Would you recommend it

Anyone tried Popcorn Time? How is it?

Last time I used it for manually added movie it worked like it was suppose to.

And like it says in the post, it's a torrent client.


/r/PopCornTime

good if you have a solid internet connection. Btw use a VPN while using it.

Kodi with Ares Wizard is much better. :) Youtube Ares Wizard for Kodi.

Where does YSteam post their HEVC shows/movies? I found out they did misfits a while back but can't find it since kat is down.

https://kickass.unblocked.bet/ <-Works fine here :).

Can't find their torrent though. I found by googling a few but there were no seeders.

You forgot to add kmspico for Windows activation on there.

kmspico

thanks for this I'll add it on.

I'm trying to pirate Photoshop, so I asked for help on a different subreddit. I just want to know if the instructions I got are safe to do, as I don't like messing around in System32.

Instructions: https://pastebin.com/zdFiZRiq

The system 32 steps just involve editing your hosts file. Editing your hosts file is not very dangerous at all as all it does is resolve domain names (e.g. www.google.com) without using DNS. The process simply forces an IP address for a given domain and is used (to the best of my knowledge) to stop your adobe products from accessing the internet and thus loosing their activation.

Yeah, I had to do the same for Lightroom and Photoshop. It's basically there to stop the program from communicating with its servers and breaking the patch. you should be good to go.

Alright, thanks.

Hey OP the link to the Russian Sites guide shows a deleted post. Mind fixing that?

Huh. Honestly I don't know where to find such a complete guide again.

oof

What are some hevc uploaders that I could get 720p version of fringe? I tried shaanig - nothing, joybell uploaded but in 1080p which is a bit too high for me still.

Try DeeJayAhmed

Where to find the genuine kms or Microsoft toolkit? There are a lot of fake ones.

Does anyone know how to pirate Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise? Thanks!

Quick question.. and yes I looked at the VPN thread.. I'm a Newbie to technology.. Is there a free VPN that will work with torrenting? and that is not hard to use.. (most I've tried are)

If the service is free, you're the product.

Windscribe - look in the post for the 50gb/month promo code

thank you. I'll give it a try

you're welcome

I've downloaded and installed Betternet and now every google search I make goes through google.ch (Swiss google) any way to stop this from happening?

Everything is going through the swiss google because you're connected to a swiss server. Change your server to somewhere in your country.

guys, don't visit extra.to without anti-malware enabled.
regulars contributors are posing some really nasty links.

Agree, the alternative is also : extratorrent dot cc - the .to has been like that for quite some time... with an ad blocker + possibly a script blocker like noscript on firefox, you can further minimize those issues (unfortunately, extratorrent as a whole requires javascript to be enabled, all you need if running a script blocker like noscript, is the main url temporarily allowed for the site to function... redirects and random tabs opening are minor annoyances to quickly close but no harm if using the above security setup). All I click on is just the magnet link or view file list or check the comments... I never download the actual torrent from there. Look for trusted uploader badges too

Some references to the above on with links re: adblocker for chrome/firefox + noscript from an earlier comment I made :

Dude! omfg it works thanks.

Can anyone offer any help & ELI5 how to upload a livestream to a free hosting site so that my buddies can watch through their browser? Thanks

Hardware/software acquired: Elgato HD60 Pro, HDMI Splitter, OBS/ Adobe FMLE

Youtube? Facebook?

I'm more than willing to try those mediums, but what is the likelyhood that TY/FB would terminate the feed in the middle of my livestreaming?

Would I have to keep creating fake accounts in order to uL the streams each week or would TY/FB just block my IP address so that I couldn't livestream from my residence?

What do you mean by livestream?

They won't block your IP but Youtube would force you to go through an educational vid on how you shouldn't be a pirate, not sure about facebook tho

By Livestream I mean to record a football game through my capture card and simultaneously upload the video to YT while the game is being played in real time. I do not want to save the captured video on my HDD, then upload the video.

Sorry if I'm not using the terminology correctly. Capturing TV shows is brand new to me.

I just realised how ignorant I am on this matter, I don't think I can provide good answers.

That said, I think even with paid hosting sites, they wouldn't allow unlawful streaming. I guess you could try Youtube. They warned me of the risk of being sued for uploading an anime vid, but I've not been indicted.

Don't worry about it. I am sure that you know lots more than I do.

I just need to understand how individuals upload livestreams to sites like acestreams. Every subreddit that publishes links for sporting events (r/nflstreams & r/nhlstreams) hasn't been able to provide any answers.

You might want to read up on RTMP servers.

You should be able to stream to a RTMP server you host (which takes very little compute power, maybe grab a DigitalOcean droplet), and then tell your friends to import the RTMP server into VLC.

How current is this list? are these still the best sites to torrent from?

so far yes. I haven't yet found many others that trump these sites.

Do we make new one or up to date this one?

what do you mean?

I want to ask if u still update your post with current active website or not.

yes i d, whenever i get the chance. I don't really pirate stuff much anymore so i rely on comments to update the lists.

Tks for the post and updating bro. I think u should made edit 4: update stuff to april 2017.

i dont like doing that becuase then I would have to add an edit every time i change something on the list. If i ever forget people start thingking that I haven't edited the thread in months and that could be wired.

Hey everyone, I'm having a struggle finding a certain torrent for a tutorial (it's not for me, so I wouldn't know the usual places). It's something about photoshop as far as I can tell, here's a link: it's gfxxtra by the way. Can anyone help me with a torrent or magnet link of this tutorial, or maybe somewhere I can look for it? I tried a bunch of sites to no avail, and google gives me the usual, dodgy filesharing sites that split it in parts. Thanks.

So I'm just trying to figure out how to pirate games, I've used Utorrent and things before for movies, but how would I go about pirating games, is it as simple as download the files and everything should work?

Yes.

Not exactly. Although most reputable releasers and repackers do have instructions. For the most hassel free way use Fitgirl repacks.

READ the instructions of every torrent read the comments too , copy crack into installation folder , each torrent has a specific way of doing things , usually click on setup exe as admin set install with specific drive an install copy crack to instal folder - it will say file already exist do you want to copy over file , click yes other torrents have installers that do it for you read an follow directions

We're the Napster generation and here to stay. :)=

are there ads and shit on Kodi? just want something without cancer ads

SOME CAN! Depends on the add on channel. I know that some Australian TV shows/catch-up TV channels still include ads. They are not exactly the same ones that would have been broadcasted, and much less quantity, however there was a cigarette quitting one (it was a comical angle but just want you to be aware.. know the feeling of trying to escape cancer always being in your face)

Nope. No ads.

All of the torrents on the extra torrent front page show no seeders/no leechers. Is anyone else seeing this or just me? Quite a few torrents that should have seeders/leechers just show -/-.

What's going on? Did something bad happen?

Need a music downloading app and didn't see it in the list. Any suggestions?

Had one with an angry bird looking character on my old phone but can't figure out how to bring over an apk from it and it's no longer available on the app store.

I think there is a cracked version of Deezeer that allows you to download music. Also check out Fildo -> http://fildo.net/android

Fildo is great, just grabbed it, thanks!

You're welcome.

If you have a bit of time, you can get Deezloader server version on your phone using Termux

I'm check it out, thanks!

Why not use the newer version of uTorrent and how do I downgrade?

they've gotten shit ever since they were bought by BitTorrent

Newer versions are full of ads, adware and freeware. Also the company has become slightly untrustable. I provided a link for the older version. Although honestly you should just switch to qbittorrent. It's open source and just better than utorrent.

i think it mines on your pc and sells your info, not sure ahout going back but i just use deulge

This is the only reason I moved to qbittorrent which is also lightweight and yet better without annyoing ads and this has a working search feature

why modified hosts on spotify? isnt it free?

blocks audio ads :D

oh, i live in a country where it isnt availble (spotify) so i used a vpn to download it and i dont get ads :P

modifing the hosts file removes ads from the spotify desktop client (and on rooted android).

Does anyone have a free download/torrent for Internet Dowload Manager?

Sorry buddy but this is not the place to be asking for this. Also there is really no point in going through the trouble of getting a cracked version of IDM. Just get ninja downloader or some other free alternative.

www.123music.to - free music at 320kbps

thanks for the suggestion. That's a pretty cool site.

My windows died today, I can't trouble shoot or restart. Where can I get windows 10 for free, when I restore?

https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/accessibility/windows10upgrade

That is probs the best most hassel free way on getting win10 for free. Also have a look at the "developer builds"

What about web browsers? I've heard to use Tor, but I currently use Chrome. If I have a VPN set up, it doesn't much matter right?

Nope. If you have a good vpn set up there is no point in using anything like Tor.

I've read stuff on how Chrome spies on you by collecting info on which sites you visit(but not what you do on those sites). What VPN does is make it look like you're browsing the web at a place other than where you are, though you have to be careful with certain VPN as they may still leak your real ip address

What's the point of having a VPN if it gives your real IP address? In my mind, those VPNs shouldn't have customers and be out of business. Thanks for the info.

Those leaky VPNs are free VPNs I think

If the service is free, you're the product.

Ya I know just another guy helping the community

Regarding using a VPN service with gigabit fiber speeds, what are my options for getting as much speed as I can?

I understand that I won't get the full gigabit speed from a VPN service. Is the bottleneck on my end's ability to decrypt/encrypt? Will building my own router solve that problem?

ask this question are /r/VPN. I don't have the expertise to answer it properly.

What's up with ExtraTorrents whenever i open it, it opens another tab over and over again before it did it as well but now it's even more i can't even search anything at all anymore it just opens new windows over and over again i close them instantly. Which pop up blocked should i use for Mozilla Firefox?

You are doing something wrong. ET Works fine.

No i am not It just opens other windows over and over again.

Anyone with KMS have any problems with the windows 10 creators update?

Just get the preactivated developer build from microsoft and then opt out of the Windows Insider Preview (can be done through settings -> update -> Windows Insider Preview)

So I have psnstuff + wii u usb helper for emulation. but is there anything like this for Xbox 360 games?

Sorry if this question is a typical question found here, but Im just curious. I have never touched w10.. is it possible to pirate it, and make it as good as a w7 pirate copy? as in, get all the free updates, use microsoft store etc? if so how ?

I'm not sure about using a windows account or the store (why would you want to? :P) But it works just fine pirated.

to buy windows store exclusive games, such as sea of thieves

why not just download them on your phone? Anyway, it does work.

sea of thieves????? k

Should I pirate Windows 10 or buy it from kinguin? I don't want it being deactivated after i install it. Any experiences?

Pirate it, use the toolkit, it's very easy.

I've had better luck using Microsoft's own installer. It's not the fastest route but it's one guaranteed to work while other torrents I tried fail miserably most of the time. Actually, Windows isos are just a pain in the ass in general.

The toolkit is available literally everywhere separately so you can get it after installing too.

can you explain why is it so easy to activate a windows ? i dont get it. you download the legit copy of windows from ms for free, and you activate it using a software thats also legit? how are they not doing anything about

also, can you tell me which toolkit exactly should i use to activate mine ? im completely new to pirating OS

Look up Microsoft Toolkit in TPB or your torrent site of choice, download the latest one (I've been using 2.62 but I think there's a newer one now), it's pretty simple to use, the EZ-Activator usually does the job. It's also good for the Office programs.

I don't know what you mean by legit though. What can they do? They create the new OS and give it certain security measures but other people then go ahead and crack them if there is enough interest.

im just amazed that its so fucking easy to get a legit copy of windows through pirating. and by legit i mean that all you have to do is click 1 button, and it activates your os. and theres no way of telling that its pirated

How good is Opera browser's VPN?

What is the ETRG.mp4 file that ETRG bundles with all their torrents? I assume it's not a virus because they are so popular, but still curious as to what it actually is. Thank you.

The best thing about qBittorrent is "download sequentially" and "download first and last piece first". Lets you stream torrents before they're finished. Doesn't seem to work on a lot of mp4s though, I suspect the last piece is too small.

I don't know if the others do something similar, but I know 2.2.1 uTorrent doesn't.

I'm pretty sure that Deluge can download sequentially.

What about for porn?

I'm keeping the SFW. You'll have to creat your own thread for that ;)

Doh!

xD

Found this on /r/all. We had a good run. Thanks for all the fish, and goodbye..

damn I didn't get to take a screenshot of that :( Still glad we made it on there though, proprs to you guys!

In "Best Torrent Clients" i'd recommend Vuze if you keep having the "connecting to peers" issue and you can't fix it.

arrrr me matey. We be travelling deep through the 7 seas for years to come!

Darn Skippy. Thanks for taking the initiative on this one. Now when people ask me questions I can give them a link instead of dealing with a 40 minute Q&A session that makes me hate them.

haha that was literally the intended purpose of this. I just hope the mods sticky this so everyone visiting the subreddit has easy access to it!

Am I the only one who has been using Azureus/Vuze for years ? Seems to work great with PIA

I don't know, Vuze is just to clunky for me and honestly with all of these fantastic alternatives around it didn't feel necessary to mention it.

Extratorrent.is IMO by far and away the best torrent site, it's not even close.

I don't agree with RG Mechanics being one of the better repacks, too many issues with their installer.

A megathread that makes no mention to the PirateBay or Pirate Proxy website?! WTF!? Also I feel like you should add Skidrow to the cracked games section

I have included skidrow. Piratebay has a host of problems right now and besides, CleanTPB is basically a proxy of tpb anyway. If it makes you fell better though I can add tpb.

what the.. I saved this for future reading and then you deleted this! Why?

I didnt the mods did. Here is a raw paste of it http://pastebin.com/quMSBTzb

I have a serious question.

Is the average person in any actual danger of prosecution?

I mean, I may or may not have been using whatever version of uTorrent to download movies, TV Shows, and games from places like Piratebay for about a decade now.

I don't use a VPN, I don't use any virus software. The occasional Malwarebytes sweep and common sense is about it. I try to be careful about what files I DL and I don't let files sit and seed (except for when I'm DLing them obviously).

And I've never had an issue. Never even a notice from my ISP. Nothing.

Now I'm not saying this is all overblown, I'm just curious I guess. People talk all the time about security measures and paid services and everything, and I'm just like, "Idk, it's worked for a decade, what's the point?"

Honestly "it depends" is the best answer. Some countries just don't care about piracy and others really go above and beyond to stop it. Find at the laws where you live and stay by those. Find a trustable ISP that won't cave to the demands of a movie porduction company thingy and to be extra safe BUY A DAMN VPN MAN!

YTS torrents is the best for downloading movies, and eztv is the best for TV shows. They are the sources for popcorn time.

I recently discovered fmovies.to and IT IS the BOMB!!! Really amazing site for downloading/streaming movies.

There are better options for both downloading and streaming. I don't recommend this one

Can you suggest some of those?

Free download manager. A free and open-source software, alternative to Internet Download Manager.

IDM > FDM....

Skidrow is a shit since they require surveys to access content. Surveys never work. If they want to charge a dollar or something a download that'd be fine but the fucking surveys are cancer.

You might be using the wrong site. I've never had to do a survey to get stuff from skidrow

yeah- I didn't have to before... I thought Skidrow went survey-cancer. Maybe i'm the dumbass.

Scene groups don't have sites, use common sense....

Whatever you're downloading and whatever site you're on is fake.

I thought eztv was taken down. They are back?

yeh ok I took the eztv link down for now. I'll see what others say about it.

well... the website seems to work.... idk you're scaring me a little here. Can you check and see if it's still the same as before it was take down.

Didn't want to scare you, I was off from torrents for some time and a while back I saw that eztv was taken down and some people mirrored their site and was flagged as not safe the same that happened with TPB and KAT.

"uTorrent make sure not to use past 2.2.1"

May I ask why? I'm using 3.4.8 and it works just fine :)

They started doing some really shady stuff. Check this and this. I'm sure that it wont destroy your computer to have a newer version but v2.2.1 is just better. There are no ads. It doesn't try to install annoying freeware and honestly there are not too many features that you miss out on.

Just get a better torrent client, like qbittorrent and deluge. Why people still mention uTorrent is beyond me.

I was using Tixati up until recently when i finally set up Sonarr. Then i switched to Deluge and it seems pretty good. Clean, easy and lightweight.

I use utorrent because it has a phone app that lets me add torrents to my computer torrent remotely, 2.2.1 doesn't have this, what does? What's an alternative? I won't change until I have an app on my phone that adds the files to my computer. Does Deluge or qbittorrent?

Use Transdroid, I believe it connects to Deluge servers. Transdroid was removed from the Play store, so get it here: http://www.transdroid.org/

Saved for when when I wake up.

qBittorrent has an app for Android and yes, you can add torrents from your phone to your PC. Although I believe it's not official, it still works great for me. It's on the Google Play Store.

[deleted]

dank meme mate

There are no ads of me free version of 3.4.8 and I didn't have anything extra installed because I don't spam the "next" button when installing software...

Also that post was by someone to stupid to install software without parental supervision...

wait what? parental supervision?

Was kind of a nicer way of saying he's complaining about a mistake he made so he's practically an idiot.

The biggest flaw in most security systems is the end user.

Ok yes he was silly to have installed the freeware along with the program but still... Utorrent 2.2.1 is better. With it you don't have to watch out for that kind of crap. The only disadvantage I've found with it is that it doesn't look as pretty.

Not better, but ok.

To each there own.

indeed! oh and *their

3.1.3 is completely fine as well.

I prefer direct download via share-online.biz / uploaded.to etc. paying 10€ for a month for full speed.

hmmm... at that cost why not just get usenet?

Usenet is not safe here in Germany and it hasn't got any advantage.

Why is it not safe?

I don't know i'm not an IT guy

oh ok :P

fitgirl GTA gave me a unwanted bitcoin miner

No it didn't, don't spread bullshit about FitGirl...

well then... crap. I've never heard of this before.

That is not true,he must have downloaded a modified version from a random source. Many including me used it without any miner/problem.

Well then that solves it.

guys i have found the best movie download place with NO VIRUS RISKS! on kodi in exodus if you look up on youtube "how to download movies on kodi" then is will give you a tutorial and once you set it up you will never go to websites again.

SPAM detected ban this bot

im not a bot lol i was only trying to give good info thats how i download stuff here is the link to the youtube tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFL8cdlFrIg (i see how you mistook me for a bot though kinda posted a bit like one)

Fuck off

lol

I had a look at the tutorial and see nothing wrong with this method. The comment is obviously not spam but honestly dude learn to write like a human being xD

you should specify that with an alert symbol or something otherwise someone will just download the latest version thinking that this is just an old thread not updated

Why download that version and not the latest one?

Direct Download.

Thanks! Mr Robot was actually the first show I searched for :)

nice! I would put this up but I don't want the post to be too long.

fair enough. That's why I said the list is subjective. I've used all three of the top clients and in my experience bittorrent 2.2.1 was the best, for me atleast. Honestly the best torrent client that I've used is transmission on mac. It is beautiful, stable, ad free, open-source and AWESOME!

Libgen is hands down the largest ebook repo out there, much better than IRC. It deserves to be #1.

We had three letters from Verizon over a number of years, with the service in two different people's names, but using the same router. They cut off our internet, but we could still load maybe a few sites fine so we knew it was intentional. Ended up having to watch some video on proper internet use for them to turn it back on, then we got them to give us a new router with no strikes against it, saying it must have been the previous tenant.

Can you explain why not to use the newer utorrent versions?

EDIT: For the lazy: https://www.reddit.com/r/Piracy/comments/57ff1q/piracy_megathread/d8rm0hf

Thankyou I'll add it to the post. Can you pm a link to me please. There are a lot of different audiobokbays

Surprised you didn't put in the main post, there's enough of a weeb demographic on reddit I would think

Do you have a recommended program to scan files like this? Just a standard anti-virus or something more?

Oh crap totally forgot to add it. Hold on let me go do that lol.

there you go

[deleted]

I wouldn't recommed using kat proxies anymore, they just wont have the newer content. Yes your tpb and TPBclean assumption is correct (and tpbclean looks prettier). As for limetorrents idk, it seems ok but I've never used it.

What's gone?

[removed]

you're welcome. Damn man, all the hard work gone. That was like half a day to make and answer questions! Atleast I got reddit gold out of it though!

even the old ones i don't think they are as good as tixati for example,you can even watch something as it downloads if you make it download in order, plus why use an old program when there are others that are being updated all the time.

It does not.

If it does, tell me why I haven't got any ads in the past 3 years? (with updates)

Oh right, because it doesn't...

As soon as an open link gets posted somewhere the owner of the site is in trouble. Happened to me.

For searching any ebooks or magazine, is my query right?
-inurl:htm -inurl:html intitle:"index of" The Economist pdf

I don't have time for individual downloads. MP3Boo let me do entire albums at the same time :( However I found a great alternative that helps me reproduce that effect almost as effectively as mp3boo

CRI? Is that a site?

lol. Good that the post it helping out. You know how to view epub files?

I guess I should try to find a french private site, do you know any?

Yup, just googled how to open epub and found some software :3. This whole list is super helpful, idk why I wasn't able to find a lot of these on my own.

What do you use?

What do you mean doesn't connect to anything? If you are so paranoid with win 10 why not just stay with win 7?

Btw torrents don't work on Mac's since Yosemite came out. This might just be for me although I've tried on three different Macs using VPN's as well. Couchpotato doesn't work as well.

Did this site go down? Cant seem to connect to it anymore.

I'm pretty sure that you will be fine pirating stuff for personal consumption in Italy. However, make sure you do it on personal networks (e.g. at home) and you know... use your brain.

If you can afford it, I would recommend using a VPN anyway, better safe than sorry right? You "should" be fine either way though.

Wait... device username? Also no one can change you personal playlists, just view them if they are public.

Try out Musicall and Netease. If don't have problems with torrenting, get Flud torrent client, torrent the music you want and upload it to Google Music. Damn there was a really good app for this but I can't remember it right now. I'll get back to you if I remember.

rutracker

I just got the one from freemicrosofttoolkit.com/ and it totally wrecked my fresh install. It's also PACKED with bloat/malware and I couldn't even deselect it all, it force installed about 6 programs, 2 of which attempted a blind hijack of my browser with no visible extension or home page change.

Definitely need to find a legit source.

No idea. Sorry. Just google it.

You're right, i didn't heard any less quality, in fact from mp3 to flac i think there's a little improvement but i know it is not the true flac, i didn't saw the details so it might be there

I would not trust anybody that says your SSD will be hurt by Denuvo. The people who made Denuvo outright deny it, and I suspect could be sued if this was found to be false.

As in, Internet relay chat, like freenode? What is IRC in this context?

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm out on holiday atm but I'll make sure to look into them when i get back to my computer.

Oh I see. If you mark them as such that would be helpful.

It can block whatever you want it to block.

My hosts file is setup to block ads, malware, porn and program activation domains.

From what I understand it blocks connections with advertising servers. It has something to do with altering the DNS server or something like that.

I'm using KVIrc. I successfully download .txt files when I submit a search, though, so I'm not sure that would be it.

The current link for it is dead. Sorry man!

[removed]

Do not ask for or link to pirated content. Your comment or post will be deleted.

N, I found it a while ago. Sorry I didn't delete my comment.

Also, just to confirm, you don't need a vpn for kodi and exodus. Right?

ty for this i'll change it right away.

dude he just told you no...

I always thought india had decent internet speeds

The host file that's linked in the post was updated in January of 2017.

So... I don't know. It does say it "works on mobile", but the host file is for Windows, so I'm confused.

Hey don't be calling your own country a shithole. I love India!

Also, why is Potplayer considered better than VLC?

No idea, I prefer to use VLC.

Read up on it, there are plenty of web articles on the subject. Also remember that these lists are based on my personal preferences and experiences. I myself find potplayer an awesome lightweight player that sutis my uses.

You can use the latest Photoshop suite easily!!

i'd give all my silver for a replacement

I updated the link like 2 weeks ago...

Use spotify free like me in a month. BUT DONT buy Spotify, if you like having spare money. (10 bucks? I could buy 4 bags of Doritos for that!)

Oh yeah.. that thing. I totally forgot about it!

Problem Solved!

Found file on openlibrary --> borrowed --> downloaded adobe digital editions 2.0 --> followed this user guide instructing how to strip the DRM from rented/borrowed books.

Some things were outdated so I had to find copies of older tools/programs elsewhere. Since I didn't need to convert, I think the plugin automatically stripped it as soon as I loaded the book into adobe digital edition.

Satisfied customer.

emuparadise has everything

I have no clue what psone isos is.

mate... first thing first. Did you try youtube? You know what I'll check for you. AHA! It took literally 10 seconds.

How was it used in your time?

Yeah I will update it soon. Sorry about that and thanks for the heads up.

Ignore the other guy, Cool Rom is the way to go.

http://audiobookbay.me is a favorite of mine.

Thanks :)

Yes, 3DS or N3DS. What I said about Sky3DS and 11.3 though is because 11.3 cannot be hacked as of yet, and possibly never. If you have 11.2 or less then you can hack it, but once hacked you can update to 11.3 and beyond.

Check out [the guide](www.3ds.guide) for well, a guide.

Freeiplus is good

So far I've only gotten copyright letters for downloading new in theater movies, so I got a vpn, but otherwise I don't think they are concerned with tracking you for downloading a book.

Nah there are heaps. Try looking in the chrome store for extensions that do that.

Because I was a fool, was not thinking.

if you want windows 10, just download the official windows 10 from here -> https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/accessibility/windows10upgrade

This is the assistive tech version so you'll have to turn a bunch of features of but that shouldn't be too hard.

If you have a bit of time, you can get Deezloader server version on your phone using Termux

WHOA!

I knew it wasn't the real one but is this legit or is this an archive of the old kat? Is kat back?

What do you mean by livestream?

They won't block your IP but Youtube would force you to go through an educational vid on how you shouldn't be a pirate, not sure about facebook tho

Don't worry about it. I am sure that you know lots more than I do.

I just need to understand how individuals upload livestreams to sites like acestreams. Every subreddit that publishes links for sporting events (r/nflstreams & r/nhlstreams) hasn't been able to provide any answers.

I think there is a cracked version of Deezeer that allows you to download music. Also check out Fildo -> http://fildo.net/android

Fildo is great, just grabbed it, thanks!

Just get the preactivated developer build from microsoft and then opt out of the Windows Insider Preview (can be done through settings -> update -> Windows Insider Preview)

I'm not sure about using a windows account or the store (why would you want to? :P) But it works just fine pirated.

If the service is free, you're the product.
