Is it OK to post torrents in

Post by uglijimus » Aug 4th, '11, 02:24

.flv format? I converted my last upload to mp4, but then thought, through that encoding, some quality must have been lost...
and maybe I should have kept it in .flv.

Since some FLV are encoded with h.264 for video and aac for audio, you don't have to re-encode those files. Just re-mux it. You can use ffmpeg(with help GUI frontend) to remux it to MP4 or MKV. I also use MKVmerge GUI to remux it to MKV format.

As for upload FLV format, there is no rule against it. Most media players has no problem playing that format.
Please do not PM me about seeding any of my old torrents, as most of files that had uploaded are no longer on my computer.
