Many of you may or may not know that BT is a great way to get episodes. But, THE BEST place to trade seinfeld episodes is the Newsgroups. If you don't know what newsgroups are, visit this guide:

http://www.slyck.com/ng.php

The benefits:
Privacy
SPEED SPEED SPEED, as fast as your connection will allow, so no more slow downloads

If anyone wants to join and post files, visit the seinfeld newsgroup:
alt.binaries.multimedia.comedy.seinfeld

If someone posts episodes, you are GUARANTEED to get full seasons at extremely high speeds.

Well, that is the only downside of the whole operation. You will need to pay for a premium server if you want a good service.

Generally, if you have a good ISP they will give you free newsgroup access. Most of the time, their service sucks. There are certain factors like "retention" which is how long posts are kept on their servers, "completion" or how complete articles are, if they are missing or not...

A couple weeks ago, there was someone on the seinfeld newsgroup who posted all HQ of season 1,2,3 and currently someone is now posting all of 7 next week.

I have paid for a couple different newsgroup providers, and the best is www.easynews.com but it's not that good of a deal. $10 for 30 days of access or 6GB of data, whichever comes first. The best thing about this service is they have the highest completion and retention. The one I'm currently using for seinfeld only is: www.newsreader.com, which is $10 for 30 days or 30GB. I figure, $10 for all seasons of seinfeld, and guaranteed privacy is something that's worth it. The biggest selling point for me is you can download anything, not just seinfeld, and it maxes out my connection (3MBPS cable) every time.

If anyone is still interested, I will post links on how to operate the newsgroups and how to post files... files are posted in multipart RAR files, and the person on the other end downloads the RARs and extracts the AVI from it. This makes it easier if one of the files is corrupt or missing.

Also, I know that it will turn a lot of people off because it costs money... but is it worth it to get so-so speeds with BT and sacrafice your privacy? I think it is worth it to pay to be secure and get high speed downloads. The reason I wish more people were on newsgroups is because it all depends on people posting the files. If no one posts, there are no episodes. If we all get on there and post what we got, everyone can download from the providers servers at their connection's max speeds.

It's a lot like a message board. One person posts a file, and 40 can download the same one without hurting or sacraficing anyone's bandwidth. Thus, they all get the file as fast as they can. Like I said, you can also go to other groups and download whatever you want at high speeds and almost 99% privacy. So if you are a privacy freak, or are afraid of DMCA letters and sick of using peerguardian and crap like that, come on over and join!

This is just like the MP3 newsgroups, which is both good and bad.

The good: it's free, and it's fast

The bad: you only get what happens to be posted at any particular time; like any multimedia newsgroup, old postings roll off fairly quickly. Also, if you're not used to downloading big files from newsgroups, you'll have to figure out how to do it.

The general process with a newsgroup reader like Outlook Newsreader is to highlight all the file pieces and then do a decode and save. However these types of files are encoded with yEnc which is more efficient but which Outlook doesn't understand. For these, you'll have to download a utility called yEnc32 from eSite Media. You use Outlook to assemble the encoded files as text and then yEnc32 to decode everything. If you Google for this stuff you can find lots of instructions -- it's not really that hard.

Alternatively, you can download trialware like Tifny which does all the work for you; in fact, utilities like this can scour the newsgroups all night and automatically download and assemble things while you sleep! I have not done this myself but I know folks who have.

I have from time to time found some very good music on the MP3 newsgroups, fantastically packaged with all the CD artwork and rendered in great quality. I have never tried this with Seinfeld or any other video material but the concept is the same. Smile

It was just a suggestion of mine... it is fairly complicated for people to learn how to post if they never have before... If you use any kind of binary news reader like newsleecher, newsbin pro, etc... they will download and decode all of the files for you and save them to disk, and it's very very simple, almost like using kazaa. Posting is a bit tougher though.

Hey Marine Biologist... have you tried a client like newsleecher that supports .nzb files? If you do that, you can use a search engine:
http://alt.binaries.nl/

There you can search for a song, then click the .nzb file and it will automatically launch your newsgroup reader and download the file.... it is awesome.

Thanks for the tip ... I don't use newsgroups that much so I've been OK with the default Outlook reader that launches from IE -- I should check out some of the ones you mention...

I just joined the Newsgroup at www.100proofnews.com I was wondering if anyone could help me out to try and download the Seinfeld Videos. I read earlier that you can get the videos at HIGH speeds, I am new to this whole newsgroup idea so i'm not totally advanced with it.

Newsgroups are awesome, but not for Seinfeld episodes. All the episodes on Newsgroups are low-quality.

And you do not have to pay money for Newsgroup access in many cases. My ISP has a great service with no limits or restrictions.

To those running around to free Newsgroup access, they don't let you view binary groups which are the ones with software and video downloads.

I don't think you have ever downloaded seinfeld from the seinfeld newsgroup... The videos that are circulating right now are the 180MB ones, and even the 250MB TC encodes... they are far from low-quality. As of right now, there is a lull in posting because one guy just posted season 1,2,3 and then disappeared. But someone is supposed to post all of season 7 next week, and they are not the low quality versions.

Scott, I would recommend visiting this link
http://www.slyck.com/ng.php

It teaches you the basics of newsgroups. The client I use to access newsgroups is newsleecher... there are free ones out there though, so look for those and see if you can find tutorials. Basically it's like a messageboard, but in your client you can click a message that is 15MB and download it instead of reading it. You have some time, next week is when season 7 should be posted, so you have time to learn and prepare before then.

PS, I might have come up with a new way for all of us to meet and exchange episodes for FREE, so I will post this idea in a little bit.

I read this post by accident; it came up high in the results of a google search. I must disagree about usenet/newsgroups for a source of seinfeld episodes. The main problem is that you are downloading from a single source. Go to www.bearshare.com and download the bearshare client (free version). With a high bandwidth connection, you will pull down 6 episodes in the time it takes you to watch one. I started building my seinfeld collection 3 days ago and now have ....(looking).....96 episodes. hope this helps!!!!!!!

That is actually impossible, unless you are talking about the really really crappy quality episodes which are unwatchable. There is no way you can download 6 X 180Mb episodes in 20 minutes.

With a 7MB DSL connection, you can download them in 30-40 minutes. And elijah, you don't know what you're talking about. Newsgroups are servers, not people. You download at INSANE speeds. It will max out your internet connection. On bearshare, you are downloading from people, not from a dedicated server.
