Songs From the Life of Leonard Cohen on DVD?

Postby ScottM » Tue Apr 26, 2011 4:52 pm

I recorded the BBC documentary Songs From the Life of Leonard Cohen on Sky Plus a few years ago. I have enjoyed watching it several times. Unfortunately, my recording somehow got corrupted and removed from my tv settings. I never got round to getting it transferred to a DVD. I am aware that there are original video tape recordings around, but wonder if any forum member have copied or are able to provide a copy on disc (dvd).

Regards,

Scott

I have received two very kind offers of a copy of this from forum members. Thank you.

Therefore no longer need any more.

I have PM'd both friends. Last I checked, the messages were still being held in my outbox but should be with you soon.
Hope this reached you.

Regards,

Scott

Hi Maarten,

I don't know what WeTransfer is but I would love a copy of this dvd. Can you send it to me or is there another way?

Many thanks.

All the best,
Merton

Hi guys,
I've been trying to upload my entire dvd to WeTransfer, but I've had some difficulties: WeTransfer keeps aborting my uploads after 3/4 of the time or so. So far, I've managed to get 2 of the 4 uploads to work but I wanted to wait until everything was ok to post it here...
But perhaps you can already download these first 2 and check again later for the rest of the files.

Click on the links below and save the files to your pc. You will then have to unpack/unzip them into 1 folder named VIDEO_TS. When all files are in that same folder, you can easily burn the entire folder onto a dvd which will be recognized as a standard dvd which should play on all dvd players.

All the files (screenshot):

Philip,
No real progress, I'm afraid... I've tried so many times by now that I have a total of about 50GB of upload trafic this month :-) . I still can't figure out what's causing the problem: I start uploading the 1GB file to WeTransfer and that should take 2 hrs, but after the 2 hrs it says: "One minute left" and a couple of second later it just starts all over again... I've left it uploading during the day, at night, in the evening,... but nothing works. I'm uploading (again) right now and am monitoring my upload/download speed with a small tool called "DU Meter" in the hope to see the glitch...
I had no problems before, uploading larger files to WeTransfer and I initially thought it had to do with WeTransfer, but I'm starting to think it has to do with my internet connection or ISP, although I have enough upload/download capacity available and I never had problems before...

I'll keep on trying and keep you informed (I'm on skiing holidays next week, starting this Friday, so it might take a while).

FInally managed to upload another file! There were 2 files remaining (one big one and one small one) and I have managed to upload the 1GB one, so I will upload the remaining last one tonight!

See one of my previous posts at viewtopic.php?f=12&t=26316&p=296693#p296693 for the links to all files.
