About a year back, we posted an article on FILEnetworks Blog about a specialized HD private torrent tracker by the name FraMeSToR-HD. It was a project started by the veteran P2P movie encoder group FraMeSToR. Today, a year later, FHD is undergoing some massive changes. First and foremost, the site is now called BeyondHD – they have moved to a new domain, a new visual theme and is pretty much a different site in terms of looks. More importantly, it is now essentially a ratioless tracker powered by the newly implemented “Download Credits” (DC) system. Despite these changes, BHD remains to be a specialized tracker for high definition content including 3DBD, BD25, Remux & other Blu Ray encodes, 720p,1080p/1080i movie and TV shows and even lossless FLAC music. If you are interested in joining, signups are now open for a limited time.
The switch from Framestor-HD to BeyondHD seems to have gone smoothly. All existing user accounts and torrents have successfully been migrated over to the new site. As of 6/2/2012, BHD now tracks ~3000 active torrents and has a registered users base of 6700+ members. Quoted below is what BHD site admins told FILEnetworks Blog about the new changes:
Well what's changed, we're running our puppy on a heavy modified xbtitFM you can safely say we're the first ratioless HD Tracker*. Instead of a ratio system our coder implemented a Download Credit (DC) system. New members get a 50000 DC bonus to start Users can donate and get VIP time ( FL ) or can buy DC points. For example when you download a torrent, you will first see the download check system come up with stats similar to below:
- Your torrent file is ready for download
- Your Download Credits: 128,025
- Download Credits after download: 117,025
HD VIPS will NOT be charged , this is already calculated in de numbers you see. If the file is 100% / 75% or 50% free leech , it will cost you 100% / 75% or 50% less Download Credits.
Just like before we still don't allow Scene x264 HD releases and we're going to keep it that way. Don't get me wrong we got nothing against the scene we love those guys let's say we got
different opinions when it comes to encoding.. ;)
*There was previously a ratio free private HD tracker by the name SceneX. However this site is now defunct, making BeyondHD the only functioning ratio free HD tracker currently in existence.
One of the mains reasons behind the change over from FHD to BeyonHD seems to invite more internal encoders other than Framestor in to the tracker and beef up the number of available releases:
Our idea is to bring you a huge number of quality content, not only by us, but also by other quality groups or sole encoders who share our vision. That's why we are going to change our site name from framestor-hd.org to beyondhd.org. We believe that this will open up the gates to welcome more new encoding talent and we could have a lot more available content.
That being said, there are quite a few internal encoder groups already affiliated with BeyonHD:
- FraMeSToR - 1080p encodes, REMUX and BD25
- ALeSiO – REMUX
- FASM - 720p / 1080p MP4 h264 and 1080p PS3 encodes
- NiBuRu - 1080p encodes
- LoNeWolf - 1080p encodes
Some of the releases available on BHD can be seen in the screenshot below:
If you are a fan of HD content, you will naturally want to join this tracker. Thankfully, BeyondHD administrators are starting up by re-opening signups which have been closed for the most part of last year. Be warned that open signups won’t last forever – get in while you can.
