Converting to DLC?
#1
Anybody have any advice or specifics on converting a file to .dlc? I'd like to do it in order to convert my finished fanmix and submit it. Surprisingly google is not as helpful as I thought.

If not, how do other more experienced people condense there files for submission? Just a zip file? Thank you.

A dlc file is only a container of links. To create one, you need to load your links into jdownloader, put them into the same link folder, then create a dlc file from that folder.

Like DigMod said, a dlc is a container for links. When you submit an edit is not needed to be put into a dlc. A dlc is usually used for submitting to a certain Fanedit website with a domain called info. Usually we don't need to compress it, an mp4 or a zip file should work for your purposes.

But, if you do want to make a dlc to submit to info, then follow DigMod's instructions.

Also, would be nice if you were to make a thread about your edit here to explain it to other members. Smile (In The Works should be the appropriate place even if it's finished)

I always think it prudent to password protect the dlc, but not all editors do so.

I don't.  What does that accomplish?

As I mentioned, not all editors do so.
Nevertheless, thank you for asking, Mr Frink!
Two reasons come to mind straight away.
First, since the password most use is "Faneidt" or "Fanedit . org" or a similar variation, that provides a bit of advertising for the site!
More traffic is always to be encouraged, yes?
Second, believe it or not, there are rival fanediting sites out there.
Now, their names don't some to mind at present, but I am certain other members can remind us.
A password will provide slight protection from a nefarious soul appropriating the links and passing the hard work off as their own.
That is something we can all applaud, yes?
I mean, no one likes to see someone take credit for another's efforts.
Then again, I could be wrong.  Perhaps I am too cynical.
What do you think?

Eh, I guess.  Once an edit is out in the wild it's out in the wild, I don't think a password makes a ton of difference either way.

Not trying to dissuade anyone from using one, I just don't think it's necessary.  Personal choice on my end.

Ohhhhh and I was stupidly going to digital-faneidt . ! .
