DVD5:
DVD5 is an one-sided single-layer dvd disc and can contain upto 4.38 gigabytes of data on it.
DVD disc manufacturers love to use marketing terms and sell their discs as 4.7GB discs, but this is not true -- the 4.7GB
is calculated by using so-called "Japanese gigabytes", where the power of calculations is 1,000 instead of 1,024 (and 1.024 is the correct way to calculate everything in computer world -- so, 1024 megabytes = 1 gigabyte).

EMUDVD:
Stands for EMUlation DVD. It's quite similar to CLONEDVD. You can burn the release, but in order to run it you need an emulation program running in the background such as DT4's RMPS. You can also mount the release, but its still an emulation. The scene considers any release that requires a helper program that runs in the background to bypass the protection as emulation, and thus should be named properly as emulation. The only possible exception to this rule is ATIP hiders.

Encode:
Encoding is the process of converting one digital format to another, applying known algorithms to either obscure the content of the file, or to compress or convert it to another format.

EP:

Pan & Scan:
Pan & Scan is a method used a lot by movie studios to create 4:3 versions of movies recorded in widescreen format by cropping out areas of the frames so that they have a perfect fit block for a 4:3 TV. The area's of the video that are cropped depend on where the action is currently. Most common, these parts are the movies' borders. Pan & Scan has a bad reputation among movie enthusiasts who claim that the movies are shot in widescreen format and should be viewed the way the director intended.

PAR-files:
These files are able to reconstruct files that are missing from the archive when downloading via newsgroups. For example, if you have downloaded an archive that was split into 47 RAR files but one of them is missing, you could simply download a PAR file for that archive. Once you have the PAR file, you can use a tool such as SmartPAR to reconstruct the missing file.

Pre:
When a releasegroup pre's a release, it will be available for other people and the distribution will start. Also the releasename will be registered in the pre database.

Pre-database:
A database with all releasetitles. These releasetitles are not for download, they are just records. Apart from the releasetitle, a record often also contains the releasesize, releasedate, and sometimes also NFO's. With commands one is able to 'check' a release.

Pre-spam:
When a release is pre'd, it will be seen by millions of people in pre-announce channels and sites. These are channels which echo every release when it's pred. Some people (pre-spammers) abuse the fact that so many people read this and they fake releases with a message as the releasename. That way the 'release' name will be seen by all these people, this is why they do it. For example, when Germany lost against Italy in the semi finals of the FIFA World Cup 2006, there were pre spam messages like: Schade.Deutschland.Alles.Ist.Vobei-2006-uSuCK. Pre-spam is certainly not tolerated and pre-spammers will be punished or scenebanned.

Pre-tool:
A tool releasegroups use to pre a release simultaneously at multiple sites. Thanks to the pre-tool, the releasegroup doesn't have to pre it manually on every site, this saves them time, and the release is pre'd at the same time at all sites.

Proxy:
A gateway through which users can connect to the Internet. Advantage of proxy is that servers and other www-users won't be able to view the user's real ip.

Proper:
Due to scene rules, whoever releases a certain release the first, has won that race. For example, when a group releases the CAM version of Titanic the first. If there is something "wrong" with the release (poor quality, out-of-sync, audio errors etc.) and another group has a better/correct version, it can release it and add PROPER to the release title to avoid being nuked. However, the source must be the same as the original release. For example: A poor quality CAM release by group A and group B releases their CAM release PROPER. A Telesync release doesn't PROPER a CAM release, because the source is different. PROPER is the most subjective tag in the scene, and a lot of people will generally argue whether the PROPER is better than the original release. The reason for the PROPER should always be mentioned in the NFO. When a group 'propers' a PROPER it is tagged as REAL.PROPER.

PS2:
A Playstation 2 game released to CD.

PS2DVD:

Releasegroups:
Groups of people who pirate and release software, music and movies.

Remastered:
(Digitally) remastered means that an older not-digital movie has been re-editted, remastered and is released on DVD.

Repack:
If a group releases a bad rip, they can release a Repack. A Repack is a fixed version of the original release. It's similar to PROPER but then done by the same group. Note that a Repack is different from a fix. A Fix will repair the original release whilst a repack is a new release.

Rerip:
A previous rip was bad, now it's ripped again properly. Similar to repack.

Resolution:
Refers to the sharpness and the size of a video, usually measured in pixels/dots per inch (dpi).The higher the resolution of a video, the greater the sharpness and the larger the file size will be. 640 (width) by 320 (height) pixels for example is sharper on a big screen than a 320 x 160 video.

Rip:
To extract or copy data from a cd/dvd to another, more useful (and smaller) format.

Rom:
ROM images is used in the context of emulation for software which only runs on different hardware. These ROM images can be run on an emulator. For example, GBA rom images which are started on a GBA Emulator. Using a GBA emulator on a PC will enable the user to play GBA games on his PC.

RTM:
RTM means Release To Manufacturing. This release is leaked before it's available in stores. A RTM version of a software title is the final retail version, the one that you will be seeing in stores.

Scanner:
People who can fast IP ranges for vulnerable computers.

Scanstro:
Similar to a pubstro, but it is used to scan for other vulnerable computers.

Sceneban:
An individual or a group of people can be banned from the scene, because they did something seriously wrong. For example when someone appears to be a fed.

Screener:
A pre VHS tape, sent to rental stores, and various other places for promotional use.

SDTV:
Digital tv recording or capture from a source stream at any resolution with bitrate under 10mbps.

SE:
SE stands for Special Edition. Like the name says, it's a special dvd edition of a movie. Often special editions contain extra material like deleted scenes, interviews, or a making-of.

SECAM:
SECAM stands for Sequential Couleur Avec Memoire or Sequential Colour with Memory. SECAM is the broadcast television standard for France and in some countries in Eastern Europe. Because of its similiarity with PAL (same resolution, same framerate), all of the modern video systems use PAL internally (for storing the data in the storage media, etc) and just change the color encoding to SECAM when outputting the signal back to SECAM TV. SECAM is rapidly dissappearing, all new hardware supports PAL or NTSC.

Serial:
A serial is a key for software. This unique key works as an extra security.

SFCLONECD / SFCLONEDVD:
Same as CLONECD/DVD, but the disc's protection is Star Force. StarForce blocks the use of SCSI optical drives when IDE optical drives are present in the system, since most optical drive emulators currently work by simulating SCSI drives. StarForce, however, will authenticate discs from a SCSI optical disc drive if there are no IDE optical disc drives installed in the system; meaning that if you want to run this disc you'll have to unplug your harddisks in order to run the mounted cd or dvd image.

SFV-file (.sfv):
SFV stands for Simple File Validator and is used to check files if they became corrupt after transfer. It does this by doing a CRC (cyclic redundancy check). After the check it displays which files contain CRC-errors and therefore are corrupt. It's also used on FTP servers / sites to check the progress of downloads or uploads.

Site Ops:
Site Operators are people who are the administrator of a site.

Site Trading:
The act of trading releases between sites.

Sites:
Very fast FTP servers with people who trade the releases by releasegroups to other (top)sites.

SQL Injection:
A type of exploit whereby hackers are able to execute SQL statements via an Internet browser.

SSL:
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. SSL is an application layer protocol created by Netscape for managing the security of message transmissions in a network. SSL uses the public-and-private key encryption system from RSA, which also includes the use of a digital certificate. Sites require SSL to connect to them, this is more safe since the transmissions are encrypted.

Stro:
See pubstro.

STV:
STV stands for Straight To Video. These movies were never released in theaters, instead, they were immediately released on video/dvd. Therefore, a lot of sites do not allow these movies.

Subbed:
If a release is subbed, it usually means it has hard encoded subtitles burned throughout the movie. These are generally in malaysian/chinese/thai etc, and sometimes there are two different languages, which can take up quite a large amount of the screen. SVCD and DVD support switchable subtitles, so some DVDRips and most DVD's are released with switchable subs.

Superbit:
These DVDs do not include special features. The extra room on the DVD is used to provide the best-possible picture and sound. "Superbit Deluxe" DVDs include special features on a second disc.

Syncfix:
A fix which will resynchronize the audio and video layer so they play in unison.

SVCD:
SVCD is a mpeg2 based (same as DVD) video format which allows variable bit-rates of up to 2500kbits at a resolution of 480x480 (NTSC) which is then decompressed into a 4:3 aspect ratio when played back

SVHS:
Super Video Home System, same as VHS but it has increased picture quality and resolution capability.

TC (TeleCine):
A telecine machine copies the film digitally from the reels.

TC (TimeCode):
A visible counter on screen throughout the film.

Topsites:
Very fast FTP servers with people who trade the releases by releasegroups to other (top)sites.

Torrent:
A special kind of p2p system. It uses a central location which coodinates the downloads but it doesn't host any downloads. The download itself consists of several pieces offered by various users. Such a coordinated group is called a torrent.

Trainer:
Trainers are programs made to modify behaviour of a computer game in order to allow cheating. Usually trainers contain such features as god mode, unlimited ammo and others that sometimes aren't pre-programmed into the game by its designers. Applying the trailer is similar to applying a regular patch.

TS (TeleSync):
TS stands for TeleSync. A telesync is the same spec as a CAM except it uses an external audio source (most likely an audio jack in the chair for hard of hearing people).

TVRip:
TV episode that is either capped from Network (capped using digital cable/satellite boxes are preferable) or PRE-AIR from satellite feeds sending the program around to networks a few days earlier (do not contain "dogs" but sometimes have flickers etc). PDTV is capped from a digital TV PCI card, generally giving the best results. VCD/SVCD/DivX/XviD rips are all supported by the TV scene.

UE:
UE stands for Ultra Edition, it's just another commercial name for a special dvd release similar to SE.

UMDRip:
This applies only to Playstation Portable (PSP) games, and it means that some stuff was ripped from the original game because it was not required or was ripped to save space. For example languages or movie files.

UMDMovie:
The Playstation Portable (PSP) is also capable of playing movies. Though a PSP can't playback DVD's or CD's, only UMD discs. So movies for the PSP get released on UMD discs.

Unrated:
Unrated means a movie is uncensored.

USA, JAP, EUR:
Especially PSP releases, but also other console releases, are sometimes tagged as USA, JAP and EUR. These are alternative regions, and they replace PAL and NTSC. USA are off course the United States of America, JAP is Japan and EUR is Europe.

VCD:
VCD stands for VideoCD and is a mpeg1 based video format, with a constant bitrate of 1150kbit at a resolution of 352x240 (NTSC).

VHS:
VHS stands for Video Home System, and is a dominant domestic videotape format.

VHSRip:
A movie transferred off a retail VHS, mainly skating/sports videos and XXX releases.

Video_ts:
See audio_ts.

VLM:
VLM stands for Volume License Key. This means that the cracked application is already licensed, and therefore doesn't require an activation after installation. Synonym: VL.

VLS:
Vinyl Single, containing 1-2 tracks.

Warez:
Illegally pirated software, movies or music.

Watermark:
A watermark is a small tag generally in one of the corners of a movie. A lot of Asian Silvers / PDVDs and are tagged by the people responsible. This is usually a letter, initials or a little logo. Most famous are the "Z" "A" and "Globe" watermarks.

Workprint:
A workprint is a copy of a film that has not been finished yet.

WS:
WS stands for WideScreen, which is a screen size ratio of 16:9 (width:heigth).

x264:
A relatively new codec, but the quality is really good. The codec is still in development, and therefore it's not yet used that much. There are already some scene groups who do x264 releases though.

XDCC:
Hacked computer which serves as a file server for irc so people can download from it.

XVCD/XSVCD:
These are basically VCD/SVCD that don't obey the "rules". They are both capable of much higher resolutions and bit-rates, but it all depends on the player to whether the disc can be played.

XViD:
XviD is an open source MPEG-4 video codec. Originally based on OpenDivX, XviD was started by a group of volunteer programmers. A very efficient and high-quality video codec and is seen as the standard in the scene.
