I wouldn't think it would be illegal to sell just one, like if you have a dvd you bought and you were selling it...but to sell more than one is definitley crossing the line into illegal territory I would imagine. At the same time, I wish I had a dvd so I could watch it on my tv instead of my little ibook screen....
rare...lol

I made it into a dvd, but there is a 1-2 second delay between audio and video..and its frustrating

I hope to make another dvd copy, that fixes this, and add in other pumpkin media on the dvd.

these guys need to be reported!

i've also seen sebastian's recording of paris on ebay. (it had the fades.)

I think Seb's DVD is PAL... so it's going to be bad when half of the buyers can't play it.

My DVD player and XBOX are cracked to play PAL.

If anyone wants a DVD of this show, you can probably send me a blank and a SASE and I'll send you a copy back.

The Paris recording was indeed on eBay as well. It was found 'in a small shop in Dublin'.

on the bottom of the page, click "Report listing violations or problems with another eBay member."
works for me.

if you're certain that they're selling cd-rs or dvd-rs, you can also use the link on http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/recordable.html

That's mighty nice of you, Dougie. I wish I could do the same for anyone planning on buying from these guys.

Are you saying I shouldnt have reported it?

I'm saying you shouldn't have. Why do you care if he is selling it? I want a dvd of that show, it was incredible. What's the difference if people are already trading it around? I'm just lazy and figured i'd buy it. It's not like he's charging an ass load.

It seems like some people are confused by this DVD bootleg and format.

This DVD was recorded and authored by Seb from the MTV Germany broadcast. It has professional menus with song selection and the quality is better than the webcast. It's meant to be burned on a DVD and played on your TV... after downloading you get a folder of files which have to be used with a DVD burning program (like nero).

It's awesome.

People were saying things about how they were couldn't get the video to sync up and stuff about .ASF files which have nothing to do with this thing.

I guess the situation is..is that the ASF file has full gossamer, while MTV does not.

I know it's probably an un-spoken agreement that you aren't supposed to tinker with people's creations.

But maybe Seb can create a version 2 that features a bonus feature of the full ASF>VOB Gossamer from the webcast.

I think people are waiting to see if Rockapalast will air the entire thing complete in the future... even better quality.... like that infamous naked man concert from 96.

"The seller ended this listing early because the item is no longer available for sale."

Guess you ruined it for everybody else.

Or got what you wanted. Glad I bought one before it ended!

I hope the ebay guy does get his account shut down.
People shouldn't be making money off of bootlegs.
and yeah, he is charging too much, $20 (with shipping). and it cost him less than $1 to make.
It's not hard to find a torrent of it to download.
I downloaded mine off of Dime.
and if you wait a bit longer, you'll probably find a better version of it than what this guy is selling.

it's one thing for people to freely trade bootlegs, or upload shows for people, but it's completely unethical for someone to make a dvd of a tv broadcast and try to make a profit from it. Anyone can download the files and make a dvd, or hell, DougieZero offered to do so for just the blank DVD and SASE.
And 6.99 to ship a dvd? This fucker deserved to have their auction pulled.

david_magno
06-06-2007, 06:01 PM
was the auction pulled?
It says: The seller ended this listing early because the item is no longer available for sale.
maybe he took it down himself because he thought his account would get suspended or closed.
maybe he'll put it back up for sale later just long enough to sell a few, then end it early again before getting shut down. and so on.

everyone who is opposed to this should report it. if a lot of reports get sent, it's more likely he'll get his account closed.
