H264 / H265 1979 & Earlier Posting Requirements

Recommended Posts

DF Staff

When posting in H264 / H265 1979 & Earlier please follow these basic guidelines.


1. Use the search function to avoid duplication & to check for an existing topic or thread.

2. Include the full title and release year. Example: This Is The Title Of The Movie (2017)
3. Use the tag system.

4. Include a corresponding image (movie poster).

~Do not use image links from other sites (especially commercial ones, like Amazon, Fantastic Fiction or Barnes and Noble) as they will likely be traced and/or deleted.

~Upload and link to image-hosting sites only, like photobucket[dot]com, imgur[dot]com, flickr[dot]com among many. Those are free hosting websites and most don't even require registering.

~When choosing a cover image for your post, please keep in mind that the bigger the image, the slower the page will load. Preferred/maximum height of the image is 500px.

5. Include the correct IMDb link. It must be click-able and not coded.
6. A brief plot synopsis is preferred, but not required.
7. Links

~Streaming links only, direct download links have a separate place.

~No re-directing or protected links, we prefer to see the filehost.

~Made for TV Movies should be posted in the forum by year.

~No third party links to sites like ours because it can be interpreted as spam or site promotion & might lead to punitive measures if abused. 

~While Allucee is a great resource, we prefer the source link from the file host, like openload etc.

8. Take a look at how others are posting for a general sense of how a post in this area should look.  Additionally, refer to our main posting guidelines.  If there are any questions, please ask a staff member by private message before posting to avoid any misunderstanding.

Before starting a new topic or adding links in H264 / H265, please be sure it meets the standards.
1. Resolution must be lower than 720p
2. Only rips from Retail sources*

3. No Flash site encodes#
*WEB-DL, HDTV sources acceptable only if it is an older movie with no BluRay release to date, or is a Made for TV movie which will not being having any further releases.
Flash & H264/H265 - Knowing the difference
The simplistic days of telling the two apart just by looking at their extension are gone. FLV is no longer Flash's only identifiable criteria and neither is MP4 or MKV restricted just to H264 / H265. Flash hosts (auto-encoding hosts) have come far enough that they have the choice of using the latest compression technologies and fastest streaming setup, aimed to instantly deliver the most compatible content to users. For this they have endorsed the versatile MP4 format. Yet these hosts lack the personal touch individual encoders give - great quality at a reasonable size, that which the H264 / H265 forum aims for.
Confusion arises when an auto-converted, MP4 video from a Flash site, gets uploaded to a DivX host. It has the MP4 extension and looks like a genuine H264 / H265 encode, but it is not. So let's get down to weeding out these new breed of Flash files coming in the guise of familiar H264 containers.
Check 1
- Any upload on a non-DivX host will be Flash and should go to the Flash forum.
- The file is on DivX host and has the .FLV extension, it is Flash.
- The .AVI and .MKV extensions are almost never used by Flash sites. So files with those extensions should be genuine H264 / H265 rips.
Check 2
- The file is on a DivX host and has the .MP4 extension. Check the filename, it will give you pointers. Illustrated with examples:
Ex. 1: The file name is Gods.of.Egypt.2016.BRRip.XviD.AC3-EVO.mp4. Now XviD is almost always associated with AVI, not MP4. Conclusion - the file you have in hand is Flash.
Ex. 2: The file name is Dads.Army.2016.WEB-DL.x264-FGT.mp4. x264 is commonly used with MP4, but Flash too uses MP4 now. In this case you search for the exact file name in, let's say, a torrent site. It will show the details of the original encode. Compare file sizes, a major difference will tell your file is Flash.
Check 3 (Unreliable)
- When there is no detailed information in the file name, like group name (EVO, RARBG, etc.) or any identifiable characteristics, we check the file size. Here's an example:
Ex: The file name is The.Shawshank.Redemption.1994.mp4. Being a 2h+ movie, any rip suitable for this forum should be around the 1GB range. But the file in hand has a low size of 500MB. Conclusion, it is probably Flash.
- The media information of the file can be checked. Compare it with a file downloaded from a Flash host. If the encoding details are eerily similar, there is a chance that the file in question is Flash. But it is a very unreliable method.
- When you are not sure about a file, it is safer to post in Flash.
