~ How to Watch Online ~

Why can't I play the video on Mega/Gdrive?
- All files are now zipped to avoid them being taken down, you will need to download them first and then unzip.
- Unzip the folder using 7zip/WinZip using the unzip password here.
How can I watch without downloading?
- Click on the "Click to Watch" button under the post in the Archive page. You will be redirected to the Stream page.
- Some videos may not be playable due to Google Drive quota and it is out of my control.

~ How to Download ~

Why are the gdrive/mega links missing?
- If there is no links beside the posts in the Archive page, you may try one of the three options below:
Option 1: Use incognito mode
Option 2: Clear Cookies and Cache for this website
Option 3: Use a different browser
How to download from the archive?
**steps may be slightly different for mobile devices.

1. Navigate to the file you would like to download and click on the preferred download link (gdrive/mega).
2. Skip to step 5 if you are using Firefox and have Adblock Plus. Proceed to step 3 if you don't.
3. You will be redirected to an Adfly page. Wait for a few seconds until the "Skip Ad" button appear.

note: You may need to scroll downwards to find the "Skip Ad" button as shown in the video (a) and (b) below. A quick fix to make the scrolling issue go away is to reset your Antivirus/Firewall by turning it off and on again.
(a) For Chrome browser
(b) For Opera browser
4. Click on the "Skip Ad" button. You will be redirected to the gdrive/mega download page.
5. Download the files as usual. (If you have trouble with Quota Exceeded issue on Google Drive, please follow the steps here.
6. Unzip the folder using 7zip/WinZip using the unzip password here.

note: Thanks Zsu for helping with the video tutorial!
Why do you use adfly? Please share direct links.
1) Link Masking
- I avoid sharing direct links as it makes it easier to be tracked by B/H.
- This will put my uploads at risk of being reported and shut down.
- Please please please do not share my adfly/gdrive/mega links elsewhere.
2) Link Management & Shortening
- There are over 500 links in the Archive to date. Adfly helps me categorise and manage them in bulk.
- A lot of free link shortening services have dead links after a couple of months of inactivity.
- Adfly has good link longevity for a free service.
Do you make money out of Adfly?
- Yes, I make ~ $1 per 2000 clicks.
- I do not keep the revenue. They all go to my website hosting + annual domain fees.
- You can search up the rough estimation for hosting a website and buying a domain to understand the costs I bear to keep this website running. The Adfly links are NOT meant to be a source of revenue whatsoever.

~ How to Play Downloaded Videos ~

Which media player should I use?
For Windows OS
- I strongly recommend MPC-HC as it has no issue displaying the .srt subs and plays almost any video format.
For Mac OS
- Try using Elmedia Player (free version) - thanks to Anon on Curious Cat for the suggestion!
- After downloading Elmedia Player, in the preferences panel, under subtitles > autoload > autoload subtitles dropdown > click all subs in directory
- Feel free to drop any other suggestions if you have any as I do not have any Mac OS devices to help test it out :(
Why does the subtitle display incorrectly/only one word is displayed sometimes?
Issue Description
- This issue is due to the characters '<' and '>' in soft sub (.srt) files.
- A lot of media players ignore the text enclosed within '<' and '>' as they are usually used for formatting.
- This does not happen with dvd subs as they are in a different format (in hardcoded .sub/.idx img format)
Solution
Option 1: Use a different media player. I highly recommend MPC-HC for Windows OS.
Option 2: Clean the sub file using srt-cleaner.
Option 3: Clean the sub file manually - replace '<' and '>' using Notepad/Notepad++ (a bit tedious).

~ Youtube ~

Where is your youtube channel?
- Both dwellingsouls and dwellingmews (backup) channels have been suspended.

~ General Questions/Requests ~

Can you upload more Weverse/Vlive contents?
- Not for now. My priority is DVDs especially older ones as most of them are already out of print/no longer in sale.
Will you upload/Are you uploading *insert DVD name here*?
- Yes. I will always upload all DVD releases for the time being unless announced otherwise.
When are you uploading *insert DVD name here*?
- I don't know. I cannot estimate when my orders arrive and how long it will take for me to process + upload them.
- If I haven't uploaded it, it simply means it hasn't reached me or I'm in the middle of processing them.
- I always upload as soon as I can so asking me won't make it available any sooner.
Can you upload to Mediafire/OneDrive/etc. ?
- No. Hosting files cost a lot of money and time. Whatever links I have provided will be all for now.
- Please meet me halfway and help find workarounds, I am already trying my best on my end to put up content for free.
Can you add/upload subtitles?
- If there are no subs available for a specific upload, it simply means the DVD does not come with subs.
- I do not do subbing for any content that does not come with subs.
- For Weverse/Vlive content, I do not have plans to upload .srt files for now so please do not request for it.

~ Report Error ~

How to report errors?
You may report them through my Curious Cat/Twitter following the guidelines below when possible.
Ensure the issue has not been covered in the Help/FAQ page - I will ignore whatever that has been addressed.

(1) Be specific with the link used to access the file (gdrive/mega)
(2) Be specific with the filename (disc number, 1080p/720p, part, etc.)
(3) Be specific with the error (requires permission, file has been deleted/moved, etc.)
(4) Screenshots are very welcomed if possible! (be sure to still describe the issue if it's not obvious)

Example 1 - Access & Permission Issue:
"The Google Drive(1) link for BTS 5th Muster: Magic Shop DVD Disc 6 1080p(2) requires permission to access(3)"
Example 2 - Dead Link:
"The Mega(1) link for BTS Japan Official Fanmeeting Vol.5 (Magic Shop) TBS 720p(2) leads to an empty folder(3)"
Example 3 - Wrong Link:
"The Google Drive(1) link for BTS Season Greetings 2018 1080p(2) leads to the 720p file instead of the 1080p file(3)"
Example 4 - Missing Subtitles (when available):
"The Stream/Watch Online(1) file for BTS MEMORIES OF 2016 part 8/16(2) is missing the subtitles(3)"
I am just human and I will definitely make mistakes here and there. Please help report them if you spot any ><
Following the guidelines above will help me tremendously in checking and fixing the error, thank you!

note: I will not reupload Mega links once they die (free accounts are limited to ~3 months of storage iirc). But please ever so kindly to still help report them so that I can clean the links from the Archive :)
