BF bit torrent tracker
This is the official request for Badminton central to have its own badminton tracker. The advantage is obvious:
1. people can quickly and easily share badminton files.
BT is superios to eMule in that it uses less resources, and is more efficient at the initial distribution phase. BT is a lot faster once a download starts because it maximizes available resources. BT is also alot more popular.
2. leechers are kept to a minimum as a memeber's share ratio is visble to all. (people are shamed into sharing more, and perpetual leechers can be banned.)
3. we will be able to see a list of all badminton videos. people will no longer need to search. duplicates are easily spotted. A dead file can be more easily brought to life through a seeding request from the forum.
4. trackers use minimum bandwidth and cpu
BT is open source; most other P2P are not. Also, there is existing open software available for BC/BF to use with minimal configuration.

Hi BRL, i've been reading about this since i have a fair few baddy vids shared thru emule - which seems to have gone down the pan of late. if i set up the tracker on my host, is it just the torrent files that need to be hosted there? or do the baddy files need to be on there as well?

Copyright is an issue.
In Japan, they were recently successful in penalizing a guy uploading the vedio in internet. AT same time, the Japanese was also successful in charging the one who assisted(this guy did not know about the exchange, I believe) in providing the "access" for the "exchange".
I don't how this file sharing thing will run on this forum. Will TV have the copy right of some vedio(we are talking may be a lot of files)and eventually come to sue somebody in sharing the vedios pubicly, say ten years later?

This has been used to huge success. I can download most torrent files at very high speeds (some files easily reach 300KB/s) Here's a little andectote: I tried looking for a rare file and found it on eMule. After 7 hours, I had only gotten 150k. Frsutrated, I eventually found a torrent site that had this type of file, and PMed a member to seed it for me. He did so, and within minutes, I was downloading at over 150K/s!!
There is really no reason to use eMule when torrents can do a much better job.

sharing videos is at worest a tort. Nothing you'd go to jail over...

at this point, there is no plans for BC to start a bittorrent tracker. there are public ones and they are managed by ppl who knows what they are doing (there are, right?) and we can use those. if you find one and want to use it, feel free to use that as the standard one and post it in the video sharing forum.
emule users are already making use of the video sharing forum quite effectively.
