Filtering out bad content P2p (Ares)

P2p networks have transcendent over the years to new heights that virtually most people have probably used one or are currently using one making it one of the fastest means of information decentralized information distribution.. We have seen many of them come and go from the days of napster , kaaza , edonkey, emule to currently most popular ares and shareza and the widely adopted bittorrent network. For those of you who are not familiar with p2p in lame terms its basically a technology that allows your computer system to act as a downloader and distributor of content via a p2p application as aforementioned above. Content can be anything from videos, documents to music. Sadly with the rise of such company's such as Overpeer which closed due its efforts proving to be worthless and MediaDefender, both companies used a spoofing technique in order to frustrate users’ attempts to trade content.
Decoying and Spoofing are the most commonly known techniques that involve sending blank files and data noise that look exactly like a real file to an initiated search requests for a particular title or search query.

Here are some tips you can use to filter out good quality content on Ares. Take note these tips are not always fool proof, but work most of the time. The probability is much higher if you use the following tips to find your desired content. The tips can also be applied to other file sharing applications.

Files with many sources are suspects, if you usually see a file averaging from anywhere above 50 users. Theirs a bit of a question mark there. 1 – 5 sourced files are usually the best way to go.

Check for file size and resolution. Resolutions above 640x480, and file sized above 500MB are usually good quality videos.

Search using “axxo” at the end of your search append axxo or in front of your search query. Axxo is more like a code name for the most popular DVD ripper on BitTorrent. Averaging sizes of 650 to 700MB, made to fit on a single CD. Or you can search by axxo only this will load up an extensive list of video titles.

Other ripoers who share high quality dvd rippers you can search by Klaxxon, Newartriot, nhanc3, FxG, FxM and Rock67

Search by “dvd”, “dvdrip” you may also append this at the end of your search query.

Search using the exact phrase once you have done that check resolution and file size as aforementioned above.

Download VLC use to preview your files mp3, avi etc. VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg) as well as DVDs, VCDs

Try to avoid newly released content, most of the time it’s usually fake or totally horrendous pot cam quality.

Check the duration of the music file or the video file, if its unrealistic most likely it’s a fake file. Unrealistic meaning a movie with the duration of 20 minuteus or less. Or a music file with a duration of 15minutes. You can use such websites as to verify the duration of the content u wish to download.

Make friends in the chat rooms, p2p is all about giving and taking. Making sharing buddies will most likely yield to good quality content.

Take note I haven't encountered any problems with documents so this has been omitted from this post.

Don't start your search query with a capital letter, use small cased letters. This may not sound like much of a tip, but believe me it works. I have seen better results with lower cased letters. Most of content on the p2p networks is lower cased.

Get in the habit of using rottentomatoes to read reviews of movies before downloading them, for example before you download any move head on down to and see what percentage the movie gets before spending endless hours downloading crap. rottentomatoes is a very reputable movie review site for casual movie watchers and movies buffs.

Take note I do not support piracy in anyway, this information is merely for educational purposes, use at your on risk. If you want to be completely safe, rather than use content file sharing, it is best to use legitimately licensed services to get your free content/video/ music downloads. This all depends what country you live in.
