Does anybody else still collect media?
Keeping terabytes of media on my hard drives seems a bit archaic but I'm not about to delete it all and start paying 7.99 a month to a jewey megacorp for a subscription service that *might* this month have it. Is there a better solution?

I still do it too. It's so little work and I set up a network share that let's me stream to any device in the house. I know people who spend $20-30 a month combined on streaming services like Netflix and Spotify. I'd rather keep the $20-$30 a month in my pocket as long as I can. They also all seem to have runaway credit card debt so yeah.

streaming is fucking garbage m'dude. you can only watch or listen to what ((they)) want you to consume. and since i assume you're into japanese media, you're even more screwed. and don't get me started on old stuff.

Its not so much that storing media is archaic as is the methods of procuring it. Fucking about with torrents and newsgroups makes me feel like I'm in the 90's, though it makes sense that things still work this way seeing as a more streamlined solution would probably require investment which obviously no company would ever want to do.

When VHS was the shit I built up a thousand VHS collection.
Then DVD came and I collected the same films on DVD as I had done on VHS.
Then bluray came and I did the same again.
When 4K-UHD bluray came, I bought like four movies. All ones I had never seen before.
Then I got internet and bought like 3 movies on AppleTV and 12 on Google Play Films. Then I thought "Why the fuck am I buying movies, I haven't watched movies over again in a long time". Buying media is like hoarding in my opinion. And they cost like 20-50USD per film nowadays. And if you want to sell them again you only get 1$ if anyone wants it at all. But everyone must make their own (costly) mistakes.

RSS has been a thing for longer than torrenting has been a thing.
Seeing how pretty much everything is HS these days I've set up unfiltered autodownload of their 1080p feed and autodelete after 12 months. That way I don't have to think about procuring any recent content, it's already there.

I'm currently having six HDD's with 8TB each. They all are filled with TV-series. Mostly in 1080p and some 5% also in 720p if nothing better available.
That's good for actual 422 different TV-series, which are mainly ripped and released from AMC, Amazon, Hulu, Netflix and so on. I do also replace such webstream rips with BluRay rips if available.
If i would pay a montly fee for all these services, i could esily spend even more money on fees, than i do on the HDD's and premium account from share-online.net
The share online account costs me 4 years for 100 eurocuckmoney, which i paid anonymously with paysafe cards bought cash at the gas station.
Normally the account is 3years for 100 bucks.

The advantage of my collection is clear, i have access to it, no matter what.
A streaming fag gets blocked from all access immediately, the moment he stops paying, even if he's spent hundreds or thousands of bucks.
I haven't set up a server yet, because i'm the only one currently in our family using the content, but if the demand changes, NAS is already available.

If (((they))) happen to finally kill off filesharing, the streaming websites will most likely push their monthly fees on skyrocket levels.
10 or 15 bucks montly fees are just the bait to get people addicted. This will change soon, once the entire internet is China 2.0

In general, the internet will become a horrible subscription and thin client server based place.
Microsoft plans to evolve Windows into a web based OS, where your local OS is just a bootable internetbrowser and all your content is stored on Microsofts servers is making me worry.
Software vendors like Adobe already started with their subscription shit and more companies are following this meme.
For me, as a "traditional" PC user, this is a horrible scenario.
That's why i'm hoarding the shit out of the content i can lay my fingers on.
By now, i would probably need ten years or more to watch all the TV-Series i already have, if i watch 24/7.
And my collection grows with 100 GB every day.

There's plenty of us. The only true upsides in using the Jew cloud are
>1) you don't have to know or understand anything
>2) just pay and you have access FOR NOW
The downsides are
>1) You're PAYING for them to create an extensive profile on you, the metadata you're providing for them is massive
>2) You have NO CONTROL over the media, meaning they want to shoah something, it's gone (I know this happens A LOT in Spotify)
>3) Even your ACCESS to the content is now completely dependent on 3rd parties, not only the service provider, but your ISP as well
>4) You're like a pet hamster, you have no control over what is being fed to you. Don't like the content? Nobody cares.

My player has auto-flip and unless you sit closer than two screen diagonals to the Tv it’s mathematically impossible to tell the difference between SD and HD assuming 20/20 vision.

Laserdiscs have better blacks, better dark areas, better gradients, they look smoother and are as sharp as one would need unless you were one of those fags who sits less than two screen diagonals away from your TV. They also have better sound than DVDs, I have many classical music concerts on Laserdisc, they sound amazing.

I still got my DVD/CD collection plus my video game collection. I store them all in my basement. I ripped my DVD/CD's long ago. I quit console gaming at the end of the PS/2 era. I still buy the occasional DVD or CD if it's a franchise or artist that I really like but most time I just turn to torrent if I want a film/song.

Fuck streaming services. Why bother paying $10 a month to watch something I already got once on DVD? Plus they can pull content at anytime so yeah fuck that to.

I got all my books in digital format as well. Lucky for me my favorite authors works have been redone as epub,etc via amazon or 3rd parties so it was no big deal to track them all down.

Yeah, I do. I'd rather have media I like under my control than relying on random companies for streaming shit. I don't like subscription models either, I really dislike the idea of paying every month. After a few years of that you've paid them hundreds, but you're still left with absolutely nothing if you stop paying. A movie isn't a service/utility like water, power or internet. I also hate how their libraries are constantly in flux, some show or movie I like may simply be gone at some point. It just seems like a shit service model, I guess people buy into this shit because it's "cheap".

I wish there were a shop for video which operated like GOG. Pay for it, get access to download it at any time and the ability to store it yourself however you want.

>> No.70229929

>>70229855
Yup. And apart from that, the difference is rather extreme in general. If they loose your data on storage-as-a-service, they're probably fine (according to contract) if they repay you the last month or something.

If they destroy a server of yours from the cloud, you're almost certainly getting a new server and probably some compensation for lost business and/or work.

If someone is making an attempt to destroy ALL your servers in your data cloud, they're probably owing you a LOT of money and going to jail.

I don't have Netflix but I've been able to try it while I travel. It's horse shit. Their original shows are trash and the library is pretty small. I remember in the old days when they did DVD by mail, they had almost everything ever made, and they would buy something if it wasn't available and you called them up or chatted with a rep.

These days it's a lot less of a selection.

It's definitely more practical for things people are interested in and will keep the torrent healthy for, but for more niche interests, especially older tv shows, you may be better off storing it yourself.

Encryption isn't the problem, I imagine it's mostly a question of how safe the data is and of unknown risks. Of course they should (in theory) have infrastructure and reliability far beyond anything most anyone would set up by themselves, but it's not like some companies are infallible. Plenty of them have had data fuckups or security fuckups. I work at a very large company which handles financial data for its customers, other teams (not mine, thankfully) have somehow managed to lose entire databases due to bugs or fuckups. Not only once either, but multiple times.

If you've got your own backups you can at least know and control/mitigate the risks to some degree, some people would rather have full knowledge of the situation rather than simply trusting that a company won't fuck up. With backups you may not even know they fucked up until you need to download the backup and may find shit corrupted or missing, for instance. If your own backup media breaks, you at least know immediately what you've lost and you presumably still have your primary copy safe, you don't get a nasty surprise exactly when you need to restore, probably because your primary is fucked.

honestly once you get setup with a few private trackers, plex, airsonic, syncthing, and a chromecast it's pretty fucking easy to just snatch something and have it sorted and ready to cast in like 2 mins

I backup terabytes of shit in private Github repros ever since m$ made 'em free.

I have some jobs that encrypt a handful of folders, starts a new private repro, and pushes it all up. It's not what git is made for but whatever. It's free and works well for me.

I would say that this isn't an issue when just archiving data and keeping it offline, but anon here just posted a pic of some old pentium. I wonder what he meant by this...

Also there are tape drives out right now that are much cheaper than 400GB/12€

honestly you just need to step up your hoarding game. don't save everything you download, build up an archive or rare/important shit. that's what I do, I'm saving a bunch of anime and shit from before ddl shit the bed (megaupload), as well as hard to find versions of films.

streaming services are OK for normie shit that you don't need in high quality. I don't think of it as giving money to jew services since I just leech off other people's accounts. everyone has prime and netflix so I'm sure you know someone that can give you access. streaming sites of all kinds really have shitty libraries if you like more obscure stuff thoug, that's why I could never get by with just streaming. that and the video quality can be ass, and I live being a videophile when it comes to my favorite shit.

often times the older some movie or album is, the shittier the encode, the one real exception being lossless rips obviously and it's rare to find old lossless DVDs, it's basically just CDs
