We recommend using mpv, which is free, open-source, and cross-platform to work on Windows, MacOS, and Linux. mpv is recommended not only because it works by default with a variety of video formats, but because its default settings properly handle displaying 10-bit video in a way that avoids creating banding and other ugliness.
We encode anime Blu-ray releases into AV1 videos and then throw subtitles on them.
It's a combination of The Dollars from Durarara!! and the video codec Daala.
No. Unfortunately, Daala is a codec that will likely never hit the mainstream. It primarily ended up being a research codec. However, many of the new encoding techniques from Daala have been applied to AV1, and many Daala developers are now actively working on tooling for AV1 encoding.
Because we can.
No. We will release series as they are finished. AV1 encoding is still slow, so each series may take some time.
To avoid spam and also because our goal isn't to create a community, it's to create content.
You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will not reply to emails, but we will track requests and fix reported issues as reasonable. Keep in mind that this is a hobby--nobody gets paid for this shit, so we'll do what we damn well please.
We are not currently accepting new members. We may investigate accepting donations, but need to find a reliable payment provider. Paypal is a dogshit, criminal company, so we will never use them.
