The BitTorrent ecosystem is changing – earlier, the trend was for P2P groups to team up with well known private trackers to pre their releases exclusively on those sites. Today, we have groups building their own trackers to release content directly to their fans. We’ve already seen iMAGiNE (UnleashThe.Net) and EuReKa (BD25.org) do this recently and today’s post is about another new tracker launched by a veteran P2P movie encoder group, FraMeSToR. FraMeSToR’s tracker specializes in high definition content including 3DBD, BD25, Remux & other Blu Ray encodes, 720p,1080p/1080i movie and TV shows and even lossless FLAC music. Unlike most other sites you see out there, FraMeSToR-HD plans to have (and already has) a lot of exclusive encodes including internal releases by groups such as FraMeSToR, MERC, FLAWL3SS and HDMaNiAcS. This tracker officially launched to the public today and it’ll have open registrations for two weeks.
Rather than jumping straight into a public launch, FraMeSToR-HD staff made the wise move to beta test the tracker for several weeks. Mot of the bugs have now been ironed out and the end result is a pretty stable torrent site. FHD’s backstory and the type of content it will track is explained in detail in the following E-mail sent to us by staff:
It is our great pleasure to announce that work is almost complete and we are on the break of launching our brand new FraMeSToR Tracker. Yes, after being on a couple of well respected sites, we felt the urge of taking matters into our own hands and start our own torrent community that will be driven with the same open mentality and spirit that brought FraMeSToR to where it is now. We will try to bring a place that will have both quality and quantity and will be fun to be a part off.
How do we see this community?
It will be a solid encoder base and hangout. We will not be the only internal group of this tracker and we have already recruited 2 other groups that we are proud to have on board. We believe that they represent the same quality standards as we do while still doing their own ways and using their methods. I'm even sure, more are yet to follow. By doing this, we have created a claiming of encodes option on sources like full blurays, remuxes, etc...... so whoever of our internal groups claims it, you will be sure that there will be a good encode to follow.
What will be offered on this tracker?
- FraMeSToR 720p, 1080p and BD25 encodes
- MERC (untouched Blu-rays EU source) coming soon
- HDMaNiAcS (Internal)
- Full Blurays
- 3D blurays and encodes
- 720p and 1080p Encodes from our internals
- TV captures
- TV encodes
- Music Blurays and encodes
- HD audiotracks
- FLAC music
Are we saying goodbye to our previous site?
Not completely. We will not upload there ourselves anymore but they have all means available to get our releases and upload them there. They won't be kept in the dark. However, we will release on our site first.
Are scene encodes allowed?
Only for TV series. Not for movies. We believe that the scene has nothing to do with quality encoding of HD content and do not wish it on our site.
Is there a reward system?
Yes there is. Although we won't use freeleech directly on torrents, we have a very good seeding bonus system that gets you points per hour per seeding torrent. Those points can be exchanged for more upload, V.I.P status and other goods. I think people will be quite satisfied.
We would like to create a huge HD Archive. One that has quantity and quality with a solid encoder base. Add a good mentality to it and I think a good and solid community is born.
The FraMeSToR Team
FHD seems to be running on a modified xbtit codebase and the interface is user friendly and navigable. Some of the torrent categories and part of the main torrent index can be seen in the screenshot below:
Although a brand new site, FHD starts off with some strong statistics – the site already has over 1000 registered members and tracks over 330 torrents (most of them exclusive encodes). Expect these numbers to grow rapidly in the coming days as news of this tracker spreads around the BitTorrent community.
If you are interested in becoming a member of FraMeSToR-HD, you are in luck. The site will have open registrations for the next two weeks, starting today.
