This is just a curiosity thing.
Personally, I think it's stupid. Will they be on a future DVD? Probably. But if I want to watch it more than once, I have to download it EVERY SINGLE TIME (which, on a modem, is painful, even using the low bandwidth version).
Also, I think it's great publicity for the movie to have people sending it to each other over the 'net. Yeah, everyone knows SW, so publicity doesn't matter. WRONG! After some people's disappoint over TPM, publicity does matter. Some people need a confidence booster that AOTC will be a quality flick, and showing some of the behind the scenes stuff might do that.
I say might, becuase TPM behind the scenes stuff looked cool, too. But come on. . . Jango Fett? I think that'd get even SW novices fired up about AOTC.
So. . . what's the opinion?
It SUCKS! Seriously, it's worse than Greedo shooting first. They're treating fans like crap. I WANT TO WATCH THE VIDEOS FULL-SCREEN!!
I hate it, but it's not a perfect system. It just adds more headaches when converting them into MPEGs.
Dumb. And they expect me to appreciate Jar-Jar. No can do.
It is extremely dumb. It's not like I didn't try to see it in theaters. I saw a crapload of movies this winter INCLUDING Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings and didn't see it at all.
Yeah, I haven't seen either trailer at the cinema. And it bugs me that you can't find any of the behind the scenes stuff, or the R2: Beneath the Dome spoof anywhere else.
i guess it's designed to make us all the more eager to get the DVD when it comes out.
I gave up after #8 so I have a few to watch when i buy the Movie.
Yeah, I can't stand this. It forces me to download more stuff from tf.net and that place can be really really slow. (I'm talking Ep2 commercials). Very annoying I must say.
"It SUCKS! Seriously, it's worse than Greedo shooting first"
i agree, it sucks, but its not THAT bad
i know it was a little frustrating when I was trying to save the wallpapers but I found a way around that as well as the videos...just need to know where to look on your hard drive space.
get a leach program.
or find yout cach folder (netscape)
or find windows then temp internet files (IE)
any files from the net are saved in there just copy and paste or move them with windows explorer. theres always a way around "no right click" java.
I think its stupid. They just want more hits on their website. I just dont understand why they would care??
What is the no saving policy?
MasterYoda13, the files are in Apple's Quicktime 5 format. These file types have an option to not allow the viewer to download the file to their own computer, and this is what starwars.com is doing.
Personally I dont mind because I have cable, so the movie starts streaming in like 5 seconds. However, I still think they should have let u download it.
But for ppl who want it on their own computer, there's plenty of places where u can get this stuff.. just do some searches on google and peer to peer programs. You'll find them.
I can't remember the last time I went to SW.com... I just don't like going there. I get everything from TF.N.
I hate it. It's so hard to get stills from the videos to use in threads, posters, etc.
`or find windows then temp internet files (IE)'
It was nice while I could get it. Windows XP stops that.
Terrible. Just Terrible. I just dont understand human behavior sometimes.
I hate it.
Why do they do this?
Don't they WANT it to be easy to see their ADVERTISING and share it with other people?
Rick McCallum loves you!
hhmmmm.... yes the no save policy is a little crude, byt all you have to do is go into your Temp Internet folder and copy it from there... I know some users cant do that..... but at least i saved a few
