[Edit 6/28/08] UltraSurf – World’s Best Proxy Surfing Technology

[EDIT: 1/30/08 – We at The Underground strive to get you the best programs, information, etc. It has come to my attention that Ultra Surf is not working as well as it should. Anti-virus programs have now named it a Trojan and will not let you install it with the anti-virus on. Because this file is marked potentially dangerous, you are downloading it at your own risk. If you have already downloaded it, you may remove it if you wish. There hasn’t been any large complaints about it but for the security of your info, you may want to scan your computer, delete the ultra surf file (if necessary), and find an alternative proxy program (or wait for us to do the searching for you!).]

Addition: 3/7/08 – Download link for a newer version of Ultra Surf has been added

Addition: 6/6/08 – Removed Rapidshare links to not violate WordPress ToS.

Addition: 6/28/08- Added Direct Download Link From UltraReach/Wujie (UltraSurf’s Company)

So at one point we had a post telling you all a bunch of proxies that would let you access blocked sites at school, libraries, etc. Well we found that, actually, the blocking programs got a step ahead and even blocked those site so you couldn’t even get to the proxy page in the first place. Well guess what, here at The Underground we like being the one with the step ahead so I did a little searching for you all… and found this- UltraSurf!

Why does this work instead of the proxy web site?

  • Because the web blocking programs block the sites but they can’t block a proxy program running on the computer itself.
  • That’s right, this is a program, not a website.
  • UltraSurf is the back door you are looking for!

Here is some info on UltraSurf:

So what exactly it is??

It is the flagship software product from UltraReach Internet Corp. for Internet anti-censorship. It enables users inside countries with heavy Internet censorship to visit any public web sites in the world safely and freely. it enables users to browse any website freely just the same as using the regular IE browser while it automatically searches the highest speed proxy servers in the background.

What does it means??

  • 100% freedom to have 100% information in most secure way.
  • It means no matter where you are you can access 100% freeversion of internet I mean no firewalls no restriction nothing….
  • Almost all schools, universities and corporate offices raise firewalls to filter out not work related sites, now those firewalls will be of no use or they have to change their plans.
  • Everybody can access various social networks like Orkut, Youtube, Myspace, Hi5, Facebook, Linkedin etc. which are blocked almost in 99% schools and offices.
  • 100% real time and it’s encryption is better then any online banking system.

How to get going??

It’s very simple you have to just-

  • download an exe file [Download Below]
  • then extract it
  • and run
  • Set proxy if u have any (generally in offices internet are provided through proxies, you can find that, through tools>>internet options>>Connections>>LAN Settings>> there you are with proxy server for your LAN and it’s port
  • Just copy that to proxy settings of Ultrasurf.
  • Then a window will pop up, says some thing in Chinese, just close this window
  • And open fresh internet explorer
  • There you are, you can surf any information.
  • For office people: beware don’t spread words to your colleagues keep this info as limited as you can, coz if system people got to know about it then they’ll take your comp for scrutinizing.

What is the Flip Side??

I should start with a quote that I’ve learnt in my life

“Too much freedom can Make you or it can Break you”

The flip side is that you can access to anything, I think you got my point, In school, universities and Work office various sites are blocked to raise their efficiency and productivity, and it is very much likely that if anyone get freedom he/she will definitely try to miss use it.

So do you want this program now, or should I just give it to you later? Lol, like I guessed, you want to Now. Well fine I guess I can give you a couple of download links…

  • Rapidshare: [download removed]
  • NEW – VERSION 8: [download removed]
  • Geocities: on request
  • Other: on second request (shouldn’t need this but just in case)
  • Direct Download Link From UltraReach/Wujie: DOWNLOAD

Please Use Rapidshare if you can because I’m gathering points for your downloads. THANK YOU!

OK so once downloaded, unzip it (if at school, put it on your student folder so it will go with you from computer to computer, just hide it a little) and run the program. It will open up a web browser and another small program window. You will also see a Lock in the bottom right corner of the screen (I don’t know how to get it off but it doesn’t really bother me). Minimize the small program window and surf away on the web browser!

Enjoy your surfing freedom! Use it wisely and try and keep it a secrete because the schools, libraries, etc. will eventually find out if enough people are using it. This thing would spread like good gossip!!!

DVD TO iPod/Zune/PSP/etc. FREE w/ Handbrake -Method 1

Hey everyone, Musicmasteria again. Just like I promised in the last post of mine… here is METHOD 1 of how to put a DVD onto your iPod, Zune, PSP, etc. for free! The only program you will need for Method 1 is Handbrake! This is unlike method 2 which uses dvd decrypter as well. This method is a lot shorter and easier so you will love it! If you would like to have a .doc/.pdf (to be desided) version of both Method 1 and 2 together, I will update this later with a link to download it. In the mean time…

ENJOY THE DVD TO IPOD/ZUNE/PSP/ETC. TUTORIAL!!!

(Method 2 can be found here: https://versatile1.wordpress.com/2007/10/24/dvd-to-ipodzunepspetc-free-w-handbrake-method-2/)

Method 1 – Handbrake alone (Non-Copy Protected Movies, Most DVDs)

Download Handbrake free from here: http://handbrake.m0k.org/?article=download

1.            Install handbrake, really simple, no registration

2.            Run handbrake (with DVD in disk drive)

You will get a screen like this:

 

 3.            Click the “Browse” button in the “Source” area. Find the CD’s “Video_TS” folder, then click ok.

 

 4.            (optional)– If you have multiple movies on the disk you have to choose the one you want in the “Title” bar. Handbrake with automatically choose the longest one if you choose “Automatic”.-If you only want a certain range of chapter of the title, choose them in the “Chapters” bar.

 

 5.            Click the “Browse” button in the “Destination” area. Choose a name for the output file and where to put it, then press “Save”. (Even though you can choose the file extension, it will record in .m4v format because it is preset to do that. To change that, follow step 6)

 

 6.            (optional)– Click “Show Presets”– It will be on “Normal” but you can change it to what ever you want the output file to be. This is how you can change what the file format will be (.mp4, .m4v, etc.)

 

 7.            (optional) – If you want to encode more than one video in a row (Queue)– So once you have everything set click “Add to Queue”– Repeat steps 3-6 for each new video and click “Add to Queue” after each one

 

 8.            FINALLY, Click “Encode Video” and sit back and relax while Handbrake does the rest.

* Length of encoding is varied upon the length of each video

* DO NOT do anything else on your computer while it encodes

 

   

So now that you have the file on your computer, use what ever program you want to transfer it you your iPod/Zune/PSP/etc.

And now… YOU’RE DONE!

ENJOY YOUR FREE DVD TO iPod/Zune/PSP/etc. Program!!!

 

Note: If handbrake can not correctly encode the video and/or gives a file that doesn’t work, it probably means that the DVD has some kind of copy protection. This is easily bypassed with DVD Decrypter.  The tutorial on how to use handbrake with dvd decrypter is already up and it is called “Method 2”. (A link can be found at the top of the post)

DVD TO iPod/Zune/PSP/etc. FREE w/ Handbrake -Method 2

Hey everyone! It’s musicmasteria again and this is my first written tutorial here on The Underground! This post happens to be the second part of it and the first part will be coming soon after.

 This is METHOD 2 and it is for when Method 1 for some reason doesn’t work for you. It is longer than method 1 but that is because it is a bit more detailed. Almost every step has a picture that goes along with it! (Better quality pictures available)

So ENJOY and keep checking the Blog for Method 1!!!

[EDIT: Method 1 can now be found here: https://versatile1.wordpress.com/2007/10/26/dvd-to-ipodzunepspetc-free-w-handbrake-method-1/ ~Musicmasteria]

Method 2 – Handbrake w/ DVD Decrypter (Copy Protected Movies)

Download Handbrake free from here: http://handbrake.m0k.org/?article=download, then install.

Download DVD Decrypter free from here: http://www.mrbass.org/dvdrip/SetupDVDDecrypter_3.5.4.0.exe, then install.

1.            Run DVD Decrypter (with DVD in disk drive)

You will get a screen like this:

 

 

2.            Click “Mode” then “ISO”

You will see a screen like this but it will have different times and stuff:

 

 

3.            Choose a file. You might see 2 files that are the same length. (On mine I have 3 pairs because I have 3 different clips I recorded on the disk) If so, choose the first occurrence.

 

4.            Click the folder icon in the destination area and choose where you want to put the file.

 

5.            Then press the go arrow to start decrypting.

Then…

 

6.            Once it is finish you will see a message and hear a jingle.

(Optional) If you have multiple videos to get, repeat steps 4-6 for the other files.

 

7.            After I did this I got 3 files for each video (I just did one of the clips I had recorded on my disk for this tutorial so I just have 3 files)

They were these:

 

8.            Now open up Handbrake

 

 

9.            Next to the first “Browse” button there are 2 choices. “Folder” and “File”

Select “File” (This is the opposite of the first method which uses “Folder”)

 

10.          Click “Browse” in the “Source” area and find the file that ends in “.VOB” in the place where you made DVD Decrypter put the Decrypted files.

 

11.          Select a destination file by clicking the second “Browse”. (Even though you can choose the file extension, it will record in .m4v format because it is preset to do that. To change that, follow step 12)

 

12.          (optional)

– Click “Show Presets”

– It will be on “Normal” but you can change it to what ever you want the output file to be. This is how you can change what the file format will be (.mp4, .m4v, etc.)

13.          (optional) – If you want to encode more than one video in a row (Queue)

– So once you have everything set click “Add to Queue”

– Repeat steps 10-12 for each new video and click “Add to Queue” after each one

14.          FINALLY, Click “Encode Video” and sit back and relax while Handbrake does the rest.

* Length of encoding is varied upon the length of each video

* DO NOT do anything else on your computer while it encodes

So now that you have the file on your computer, use what ever program you want to transfer it you your iPod/Zune/PSP/etc.

And now… YOU’RE DONE!

ENJOY YOUR FREE DVD TO iPod/Zune/PSP/etc. Program!!!

Another Site to watch Movies, Tv Shows, Anime, + More on…

I noticed a post back in April that said a site but it  didn’t say anything about a few main ones that I found.  So… I have decided to share a few sites with all of you.

http://movie6.net – Lots of movies, list is expanding often

http://www.ovguide.com/ – (Online video Guide) Search engine that looks in a lot of sites

 vid2c.com -Currently down… don’t know what happened to it but if it comes back, it was a great search engine like ovguide.

 Those should do for now. If you can’t find the movie their, you probably wont find it anywhere else.
