Can I Send MP3/Lossy Sourced Audio Or YouTube Sourced Video?
We prefer that all shows be lossless but we also understand that in some cases it may not be possible to find a current lossless source. For those shows that have no lossless source, lossy sources are ok to send. Please indicate if the show is lossy sourced or in mp3 format. If the show is audio please make sure that you do not submit a lossless file for a lossy sourced show. Be sure to keep the lossy audio shows in mp3 format. If you are submitting YouTube Sourced show, please submit it in the original format.
Can I Send Another Version Or Upgrade To A Show You Have Listed Already?
Yes! We welcome upgrades and want to have as many versions listed as there are out there of each show!
