    Helpful software

    What are some apps or software that you use to access anime? I know not all is readily available online. I am curious to know what are some of your favorite apps.

    Re: Helpful software

    I can give some simple answers. If they are too basic, please excuse me, I don't know your level of expertise.

    Most anime today are in MKV format. To actually view the anime, I use Media Player Classic.

    I find most of the current anime I watch on SubsPlease
    https://subsplease.org/

    Older and non standard anime can often be found on Nyaa
    https://nyaa.si/

    Both sources use torrents.

    Hope this helps.

    That's really interesting. I have read about these before, I thought that not a lot uses them nowadays.

    They all do what they're there for. That's why they are still used.

    Re: Helpful software

    Torrenting is almost always the most efficient way of going about things, but sometimes I find an anime I want to watch is so obscure or unloved that it's really hard to find a decent torrent for it.
    One trick that I use in situations like those is to check and see if anyone has uploaded a copy to Youtube. In a surprising number of cases, it's available, sometimes even uploaded by the copyright holder.
    If you do get lucky and find what you're looking for, the best thing to do is to download the video so you know you always have a good copy. There's plenty of software out there designed specifically for this. I've tried a lot of programs and most of them worked at least decently, but by far the best has been Youtube DL. It's the fastest, the easiest to use, and it's both free and ad free.

    Also, this is actually hardware, not software, but I enjoy copying my anime to my PS3. If you have one lying around it's a really easy way to watch anime on a TV instead of a monitor, with the downside that it can only play .mp4 files.

    I agree, there are a lot of contents on YouTube waiting to be explored.

    I still do too, but it's sad that probably won't be possible long term since it ended official development several years ago. If I ever have time to spare for more OSS, it's a project I'd like to look into...
