For some reason you got some of the files from the VIDEO_TS folder, but not all of them... The other two folders (root and AUDIO_TS I knew you wouldn't get)
I found a program to make an ISO file. It can be used to burn a DVD, or I was able to use VLC (on a Mac) to watch it as an ISO file right on my hard drive.
Link to copyrighted material removed
Give that a try hopefully it will work!
Thanks JimSig! I downloaded the iso. Now I have to burn a CD. Then I will copy the files to a hard drive. I'll keep you posted.
See you down the road!
Great HotLks! Let me know if it works for you.
Hmm.. I just saw that my link to the .ISO was removed because it was a "link to copyrighted material". Since this movie was never released, and was just played once on PUBLIC television in Europe ONCE and videotaped by someone, from which this DVD was made, I'm not sure why it's considered to be copyrighted.
Plus there are streaming links to the movie at the top of this page to the same movie, so why are those OK?. So YouTube can have it on their site, yet a link to the SAME video in a different format (.ISO) on here is removed because it's copyrighted? That makes NO sense.
I'm glad you got it before the link was removed, and I would not have posted it if I considered it copyrighted, rather than "abandoned" and never to be released as a public movie. I'm a member of ASCAP and know about copyrighting, and this case just doesn't make sense to me.
FYI, to download Youtube video: but type ss before the youtube in the url, hit the enter key.
Convert a youtube music video to .MP3, go to Google and search "youtube to MP3" choose the first result. Works great.
Want to make an .ISO out of anything, go to www.ninite.com and download the ImgBurn program. Want to make audio CD's out of .MP3's, download CDBurnerXP from ninite.
All of these programs on www.ninite.com are free, it's not an illegal software web site.
AGAIN, none of these programs are ripped off, their all shareware and they are very good.
Linking to Youtube is legal. Publishing an ISO or IMG file of a privately owned DVD is generally considered piracy. Individual videos may indeed be exempt, but posting of .ISO or .IMG files is a red flag for the copyright police and can bring unnecessary scrutiny on the forum. If you want to share something like that, please exchange links via PM or preferably via email and completely off the forum. Thanks!
I'll take your word for the fact that a video on YouTube, probably obtained by them in the same manner I got mine (since this movie is NOT commercially available nor was it ever publicly broadcast for profit, it's source is a private citizen's VCR recording of a PBS station playing it just once, I believe) is legal to watch OR download (which is very easy to do and then burn that to a DVD and you have the same thing I have), yet a .ISO file of the exact same movie on a private (mine) DVD, again obtained likely in the same manner as YouTube ultimately got it) is piracy...
No, even as an ASCAP member and published composer (meaning I've had to deal with copyrights on my own works many times), that "distinction" between what is legal and what is piracy is absurd. But I will abstain from posting .ISO or .IMG files on this forum, as I don't ever want to put this forum in any kind of a legal mess, since it's probably the most valuable Blues forum in existence and I care very much for the welfare of Griff and all his students (including myself) that use this.
But I really do hope on some other much less valuable forum that this very issue becomes a legal issue that perhaps has to go as far as to the Supreme Court (not that I agree with many of their decisions, but occasionally an issue is SO black and white obviously absurd, that they can't help but make the right decision). Simply because I know about copyrighted material, and the distinction here between posting a link to a non-commercial movie vs. posting an .ISO of that same movie, probably initially obtained from the same original source, is beyond my comprehension.
But I will obey this forum's rules for the sake of this forum, and you don't have to reply to this - let this matter drop and hopefully in the future common sense may prevail just a bit more in our copyright laws.
So the last few were spent watching the old Rock and Roll movies etc. I was amazed at how much early Rock depended on big band jazz rhythm. But during the research i came across the most accurate and balanced documentary on early rock. Well worth the watch:
There have been many newbies asking about blues history in a quick format. Here it is....240 brief artists and video of songs by the Artist. Each take is one song with sub-titles to explain the history of the artist.:
Now hat you watched the 240 loinks here is a great site for you to get deeper into your blues pallet::
Just found this link! Very good references to Blues History! Somewhat off the track, but I just finished reading "The Birth of Loud" by Ian S. Port about the early development and impact of the solid body guitar by Leo Fender and Les Paul. Good "Gear" history!"
This is an interesting take on Robert Johnson:
Well worth the watch: Bluesland
The Cradle of thet Blues:
The Blues had a Baby and the baby was called Rock n Roll:
