Due to the overwhelming response of our last contest, it seems that we need to keep the spirit alive and well, and thus I am announcing a new contest for our ET members! This contest, will be based upon YouTube videos, and whom can make the best video about how to use Extra Torrent.
Extra Torrent is one of the best open and balanced file sharing sites on the web today! We offer our users a great interface and site layout, which is easily navigated by any user, regardless of experience!
Although almost all of you know how to use our site, there are many people who have never heard of us, and to help promote us, we've came up with a great way for our community to be heard!
This month's contest, will be based upon user created YouTube videos, and whom can best depict our great site in a custom made video! Ideas for the videos can be a large variety, along the lines of how to create torrents, how to upload torrents to ET, how to download torrents from ET, how to navigate our site, how to add descriptions, how to leave reviews, how to use our PM system, and/or all of the above.
Keep your video innovative and original, and your chances of winning will be great. Doing this will not only open up Extra Torrent to others who've never heard of us, but may even help newer members in their quest to fully use all that our site has to offer!
We all were beginners at one point, and all of us found Extra Torrent one way or another, and we all have highly enjoyed all that this site has to offer! Extra Torrent is based upon quality material, and we want to see what kind of quality videos our members can create!
This will not only elevate our site by spreading the word to many whom are new to the BitTorrent protocol, and assist them in understanding how it all works, but this will be a great way for each member to show their stuff, and have a good time doing it!
Try to be as descriptive as possible in your videos, and show as much as you possibly can about our site, and how to fully use it. Winners will be determined by our site administration and users, based upon overwhelming response!
First place will receive a six month VIP membership, along with the acknowledgment in an article of their victory. Second place, will receive a three month VIP membership. Last but not least, third place will receive a one month VIP membership added to their account.
We have a very creative and intelligent community, so I hope to see as many videos from you all as possible. Please use the comment area below, to place the links to your videos, and share your creation about Extra Torrent with us all!
Good luck to everyone, and I hope to see some great videos or tutorials about our amazing website. ET is the place to be, and let's show everyone why!Posted by: Date:

|Let's keep it clean... Try to stay along the lines of, how to use ET, how to upload to ET, how to download from ET, various torrent clients you would use, how to navigate our site, how to do a description with or without BBCode, how to add images, send pms, use chat, etc etc etc. You get the point. May the best video win!|
|I cant wait to see these videos.This is a great away to spread the ET Gospel.|
|There are so many different types of software you can use to do this with or without a camcorder or webcam. You can use various screen grabbing software, a little Google searching and you can all find out if you do not already know!|
This software has an English interface as well. Try it out.

|"Bluepeas"-- Odds are you can NOT get into the forum because 99% of the members here cant...It has been messed up for a loooooooooong time and a new forum was supposed to be implemented long ago as well...Luckily Extrascene will have a fully functional forum up and running in a matter of days :) I guess when ya want something done, you gotta do it yourself..LOL|
|Dude? what ya thinkin'?? that will expose ET to the masses!|
Bring in a whole raft of hackers and lowlifes...as well as unwanted exposure

|ditto! Great Avatar moonta|
|Hehehe Great idea... But i Have one quistion... Isent this torrent shit illegal of some point? Piratebay.org got close becourse of this, right ?... just let me know :) Love this site... I will never hope it closes...|
|@ Razer. |
Sigh... You must not read my articles? Eh? The BitTorrent protocol is in no way, shape, or form, illegal. It is a valid means of sharing files over a popular peer to peer network, BT. File sharing has long existed, and will forever exist. In NO nation, is the BitTorrent protocol illegal. Yes the sharing of "copyrighted" files is at times controversial, then again, so is the definition of "copyrights". This will continue to be disputed for the ages, and thus it leads to the agenda of misinformation which exists today. Sadly, many believe what you just stated, but the fact remains that it is wrong. BitTorrent is not illegal, nor is file sharing. :)
|i aint gonna show people how to speed up the downloading process... lmao.. maybe cause i use a seedbox hahahaha.....|

|This is illegal im gone!!lol|
|I'm gonna try and do a multi-part tutorial.|
One on using the site I'm general including Chat, Finding down loadable material, basic downloading issues like choosing all or part of a multi-download or pruning trackers that have issues to speed up your Dload, Commenting & Reviewing.
One on Encoding, creating a torrent, uploading it and making a sweet looking page via the details box.
I'll have to see how long the Vids will be with different methods of encoding them. Not sure what overall size is considered "getting a lil large"
|Here are some tips I copied from YouTube's Help Site:|
Best Formats for Uploading
YouTube can accept almost any video format for upload, but for most users we have found the following settings give the best results.
â– Video Format: H.264, MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 preferred
â– Aspect Ratio: Native aspect ratio without letterboxing (examples: 4:3, 16:9)
â– Resolution: 640x360 (16:9) or 480x360 (4:3) recommended
â– Audio Format: MP3 or AAC preferred
â– Frames per second: 30
â– Maximum length: 10 minutes (we recommend 2-3 minutes)
â– Maximum file size: 1 GB
