So, here is my first Torrent. Hope everything works!

PLEASE DON'T DOWNLOAD THE FIRST TORRENT, IT DOES NOT WORK. THE CORRECT TORRENT IS AT THE END OF PAGE ONE IN THIS THREAD!!
(If you still want to download it due to the fact that is not the best quality available).

This is a DVD i made out of the mpeg-files i downloaded here on queenzone. I have no idea if there is already a DVD out there to download, i couldn't find one here!

Converted the files with DVD-Lab, made a little DVD-menu and added a nice backing-track to the menu.

The Picture and Sound-Quality is not bad, but due to the fact that it is a 1980's Video-source not compareable to modern standards. There where 5 mpeg-files, so i made 5 segments to choose from the DVD-Menu, each of them split in to several chapters. They where made automatically by the programm!

Running Time: approx. 48 min. PAL
Audio: MPEG 2.0 192 Kbps
File Size: approx. 1 GB

Hope that some of you can use it!

Rock On - DeeJay B.

You will need a bittorrent client to download the music. For additional information, view the Bittorrent FAQ.

Please leave your window open when you have finished downloading so that other Queen fans can download.

This file will be customized for you when you download

4 things

1..You didn't make a DVD ,you made a bloated lossy mpeg file from the lossy mpegs and put it on a Disc that is in DVD standard for a DVD player to play it.
They were lossy mpeg files to start..they will always be lossy mpeg files.

2..You have created another stage of lossyness by the conversion to the bloat.
They were best left as they were and put onto a CD.Why...because they were VCDs

3..People who download this lossy creation of yours will now infect the trading pool by passing it off as a DVD because they know as much as you do.

4..PRATT!!!

We just get people to realize the benefits of lossless on the audio front & then you come along....cheers

I'm sorry but that sounds just a bit too ungrateful. Yeah sure he has created yet another lossy DVD but at least he's sharing something some may find interesting. I know that some like to watch these clips on DVD for whatever reason so this isn't that useless.

Thanks for sharing!

First of all thanks for your nice words. you make me feel really welcome here. heard a lot of rumours about queenzone and the always nice people here yelling and swearing to each other all the time.

but after some years now and some very funny, sometimes disturbing post i saw here this proves again that the rumours are more than true.

So, i'm no expert on making a dvd. And i really appreciate your comments about my work on the original files. I know now that i did it wrong.
All i wanted to do is that the files can be watched by everyone with a dvd-player.

I never posted a torrent here before. But i downloaded a lot in the last years. I never converted flac-files into mp3. I always keep my torrents online as long as my bandwith allows it. i also made some covers for everyone to use. and now i wanted to post something new here.

And if to bluster is all you can understand here - stick your pratt where the sun don't shine!

Good to see your site is back ;-D

"enter english

This DVD is indeed lossy but don't worry, thanks for sharing anyway.

PS: this was originally SVCD, not VCD.

I´ve missed the SVCD, so this is really appreciated. Thanks!
One thing is good- You´ve kept the lineage of what you´ve donne to that video, this way we know what we´re downloading.

Take care

Manuel, thanks for the effort. I'm sure some who haven't seen the files will appreciate it.

928 - Grow up and stop trying to earn a reputation. Nobody thinks you are fighting an honourable battle to educate. Most think, quite rightly, you are a stupid, ignorant prick.

These "lossy" files you hate so much are for Queen fans to enjoy, not trade. If you don't want to download, don't say anything.

Yeah, and it's brilliantly intelligent people like you who are helping the lossy files circulate, because you don't know the difference between good and bad quality.

This is very true. But still, this version should be taken down, and shared as the 2-SVCD set it originally was. Passing this off as a DVD is like painting a silver necklace gold, and saying it's a gold necklace.

First, please learn to speak English. I had to read that one word at a time to confirm that it was actually some form of English.

Second, if we're going to improve the quality standards at this forum (and the reputation of Queen collectors in the wider collecting world), then we need people like 928 to speak up. I'm sure he's a very nice person. He has just established himself here as being the litmus test for what is lossless and what is not. Thanks for once again being the voice of reason, even if you're still the voice that few of us want to hear. Keep it up, man!

The bickering and bashing up here by the same 'great' few that uphold all that is sacred and others is ridiculous. You guys take yourselves and this whole 'thing' way too freaking seriously. It's not the end of the world, people. Why don't you focus your energy on petitioning Brian May and Queen Productions on getting them to start releasing real material that most Queen fans want??? That sounds more worthwhile than the FLAC/lossy debate and crap like that. Just because stuff that isn't FLAC is out there doesn't mean that FLAC will disappear like the polar ice caps! Again, it all comes down to this: IF YOU DON'T WANT IT, DON'T DOWNLOAD IT!!!

SirGH and 928 have many valid points. I just dont see why all you others dont seem to understand it too. Its quite simple really, but instead of learning i guess its easier to respond by using harsh words.....oh my
