For our readers who missed open signups of DVDSeed and SceneSound when they were posted earlier, here is some great news. Both these trackers have re-opened public registrations and this time it’s likely that they’ll be open for more than a few hours. DVDSeed is an untouched DVDR (DVD5 and DVD9) and Blu-Ray movie/TV torrent tracker which is rarely open for public registrations. SceneSound is a new scene MP3 releases tracker that is based on the SoftMP3 source code – first open signup of this tracker lasted only for a few hours and many members could not get in during this short time interval.
Since both these sites were reviewed in detail here on FILEnetworks Blog recently, same information will not be repeated in this post. However we highly recommend you read the full tracker review (links given in the descriptions below) to get a detailed understanding of the site before you join.
SceneSound seems to have moved to a better server setup and have apparently fixed several issues with the site– problems with signup page and RSS feeds now seem to be resolved. The bad news is that they’ve banned about 25 countries from the tracker – reason for this is unknown. A translated version of the news item posted on SceneSound is included below:
We are now running again on a better and more stable host. It has also been some changes in staff, you can see them here.
- RSS feeds are updated and fix. There are now more choices before you generate a flow.
- The donation page will come up shortly, more details of this when it is approaching.
- Anyone can request and upload.
- Some countries have been banned: Za. Ch. Ie. Ar. Mx. Hu. Tr. It. Pl. Il. Ro. Nz. Sk. For. Sg. Cn. Ru. Rs. De. Gr. Es. Ec . br. pt
Last, but certainly not least, registration is open.
