Ever since it saw the light several years ago, the DivX/Xvid video codecs have been hugely popular, especially among those who download movies and TV shows over file sharing networks. However, with the advent of higher fidelity encoders such as x264, some argue that the Xvid format is dying. But if you look at download statistics on most private torrent trackers, you’d see that the number of downloads for Xvid encodes of a release still greatly outnumber x264 encodes or untouched DVD/Blu Ray versions. In other words, Xvid still alive and kicking. TinBoxTorrent is a brand new private tracker that attempts to utilize the popularity of Xvid encodes – it’s a site that mainly caters to Xvid movies and TV shows with the main focus on BRRip and BDRip releases. TBT is probably the first site to prioritize or these relatively new Blu Ray rip formats and it starts out as a ratio free tracker. The site is still new but it definitely has the potential to succeed.


This is probably the first time you hear about TinBoxTorrents – it’s only been a few days since the launch (opened on 25th September 2010) and it hasn’t received any media attention so far on BitTorrent forums and blogs. Currently there are only 78 registered members on the tracker but this number is expected to go up once this article goes live and as the news of TBT spreads around the BitTorrent community. 

The amount of torrents however is a different story. TBT starts off with around 275 active torrents. It appears that these torrents are seedbox hosted and has decent download speeds. Uploaders will however need to improve the rate which new torrents are added to the tracker (we know, this is easier said than done). As mentioned earlier, TBT is a movie/TV tracker with both Xvid and HD video formats including x264 encodes. Their ultimate goal seems to become a tracker which specializes in BRRip and BDRip torrents. A screenshot of  part of the the torrent index can be seen below:

According to the site’s owner, TBT starts off without ratio rules in a bid to promote the tracker. They might however switch to a ratio based model later – even so, we are told that site wide free leech will be activated for at least 7 days every month.

Signups for TBT are currently open. All newly registered members will get 5 freeleech slots, 1 invite and 200 bonus points upon signup. As for closing comments, this clearly isn’t a site that can challenge the movie repositories of TL, IPT or PTP yet – but it definitely is off to a good start and as we said earlier, has the potential to succeed.

    I recently joined this site just this Sunday 9/03/10. Despite the fact that they're new, and I thought that the speeds were going to be creeping like most new start-ups. I was pleasantly surprised to see the quality of torrents available, and the fact that the staff there are using seedboxes to ensure this great speed I received!! Thanks for allowing me to join TBT. PLZ give out more invites.

    No wonder XViD is more popular, that's what people with new mkv friendly standalone DVD players don't understand : if we prefer to use divx it's for a good reason : its compability !
    You can play divx/xvid on a lot of "old" dvd players, on xbox360 without the need to stream it.

    And most of all the encodes are as good as those on x264, not smaller/not bigger in size, and same quality on a big HD screen.

    Maybe when I buy a new player I change my mind, but for now I stick to XViD and all the awesome HD XViD P2P encoders.
