More about my Capping News

Guess I should've clarified what I meant by "acquiring" the SPN episodes on BluRay.

I'm getting them as high quality downloads. MKV files, just like I get my regular episode downloads.
I don't have a BluRay player or any discs and currently have no plans to buy any. Besides, my PC wouldn't be able to play them anyway. :P

The mkv files are HUGE. We're talking over 1GB per episode (2 GB in the case of the Pilot). They take up so much space that I'm keeping them on an external hard drive. As such, they take hours just to download. Luckily, I downloaded and installed FlashGet yesterday and it's made a world of difference in the speed. Back when I was on dial-up I used a similar download manager program (or maybe it was the same one, hard to remember). In most cases I can download 2 episodes at a time - one in FlashGet and one in my Google Chrome browser.

Btw, for a while, I couldn't get the Pilot episode. Very upsetting. But last night, I did finally get a download of it. In looking at it, I'm not all that positive it is from BluRay (even though the file link said it was), but since I can't get it any other way, it'll have to do.

Last night I finished getting all of Season 1 and today I'm working more on Seasons 2 & 3.

Just thought I would clear up any confusion in my previous post. ;)
