I have 200 CDs by Queen live plus 98 DVDs .
How do I post them ?
I'm willing to share the recordings if I don't get in trouble
If you upload it to an upload server :
- select one of these servers : http://www.rapidshare.com
or something similar
- using zip or rar split the folder which contains the FLAC files into 100MB parts if you want to upload it to RapidShare or MediaFire
- upload it to your chosen server
Two little things to add :
1/ -Before uploading anything, after having ripped your CDs and created the files in Flac format, just run Audiochecker (http://www.dester.hu/English/home_e.html
), and see the results it gives you. If the files are MPEG with probability 95%, then don't worry uploading, your files are lossy, which a lot of quality has been taken out by a compression to MP3 before your CDs were created. So you'll most probably find better quality recordings here. If you have a quality "CDDA" that means the quality is there. You can ask before uploading if you're not sure by posting the results of this test and one track for example to someone here on the forum who would be happy to help you.
2/ -if you have to zip the files, using Winrar for example, you can choose how hard the files are compressed; you have to choose the lowest compression (in fact no compression, the "storage" option, I don't know it is named in the english version of Winrar but in French it is called "stocker"). That way, you keep all the quality of your files. If you compress the files for creating a rar file, even a slight compression, it will take some quality out, therefore your share would not be at his optimum appeal.
Just thought it was important to add, but thanks to Pittrek for all he said previously, a nice little guide.
Thanks for your will to share. If you still need some help to upload anything or find it difficult to do, don't worry I (or others) can also help you and upload them for you, just ask and we would be pleased to help you.
