Tin Toy

New goodies up in my anime clips collection: Opening credits for Sasami - Mahou Shoujo Club, opening and closing credits (and closing credits and closing credits) for Renkin San-kyuu Magical? Pokaan, and opening and closing credits for The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Most of the closing credits for MagiPoka are Matroska files, .mkv, rather than the usual avis I provide. There is a reason for this, but you will need a Matroska aware player to discover what it is. You should be able to get Windows Media Player to do the job; my current preferred alternative (since BSPlayer went crapware) is The Core Media Player. It's not pretty, but it works well enough.


Oh yes: BitTorrent trackering is currently rather messed up, so they're enabled for direct download. Try not to devour all my bandwidth.

1 Aaaaarh, bandwith ahoy! We'll fill the hold with bits! Throw the zeros overboard, we only want the ones!

Strangely, your older files on there still have working torrents. Is your tracker just unable to get new torrents working?

3 I've found that VLC player seems to do the trick. Well at least on Mac OS X it does. Mkv is supported out of the dmg.

I've installed the basic MKV pack for windows but sound doesn't seem to work. At least on WMP.

4 Nathan - I think it's working again now, but the torrents are a pain to keep seeded.  Unless downloads take off, I'll make individual clips downloadable over http and just keep the big collections and fansubs as torrents.  (I upgraded the tracker yesterday and broke everything.)

Wonderduck - you're welcome. :)  There's a version at Youtube, but the quality sucks.  (As always with Youtube.)  I have a high-quality un-subtitled version too, which I'll make available tonight.

Andrew - yep, VLC works with most files too.

I downloaded WMP 11 last night, so I'll have a play with that too.

6 Besides using a media player with a built-in Matroska reader, you can install a DirectShow Matroska splitter (in DirectShow terminology, a file reading filter is called a "splitter") and then play Matroska files with any DirectShow media player.  There are two main Matroska splitters around, Haali's Media Splitter and Gabest's Matroska Splitter.  Google can help you find either (I use Haali's).
