It’s just been two weeks into 2011 and we have already seen the birth of several notable new private torrent trackers this year. The list just continues to grow as XvidMe enters the BT scene – it’s the newest niche tracker on the block and as the name suggests, specializes in movie releases encoded using the popular Xvid codec. Site is just starting up but its aim is to become *the* place on the internet to find and download 700MB/1.4GB movie releases. XvidMe is not the first private tracker to try the Xvid-only formula – several similar sites have existed before, such as the likes of 700m.Bz and SceneXvid. None of these trackers are around today so that makes XvidMe the only specialized Xvid tracker currently online. With Xvid codec still popular and widely in use, XvM has a good potential to succeed if they play their cards right.
Needless to say XvidMe is a very young torrent tracker. It’s just been online for four days and hasn’t had any exposure to the public yet. There are currently around ~150 Xvid movies uploaded to the tracker (statistics as of 1/19/2011 – these are bound to increase as the site gains more popularity). It runs on a customized version of TBDEV codebase and has all standard features of a private tracker including forums, a requests section, category based search, a ratio system, etc.
As for the content on XvM, it’s pretty much self explanatory. Currently the site is a movies only tracker, with all uploads encoded in Xvid format. Releases are categorized into various movie genres such as Action, Adventure, Comedy, War, etc and are searchable from the main index. A screenshot of part of the torrent index can be seen below:
Signups for XvM are currently open. Currently there are only around 125 registered members but this will soon go up as the tracker gains more publicity via blogs like this and via BitTorrent news forums. If you are interested, check it out.
