Just downloaded the VOD versions (mp4, DIVX and mpg) and I have one question that I should know, but sadly I dont!

The "high quality" mpg version, if I just burn that on a DVD as a data file, will that play in my DVD player hooked up to my TV?    Is there some sort of conversion that must be done first?

Thanks all.
If I'd have read the 1st page, I wouldn't have bought the .mp3 and movie on Amazon :-[

BUT, I went ahead and payed the $9.99 so I can make a DVD version AND have a copy on my BlackBerry Bold :highfive:


PSL: You should just use DVD Flick and it'll convert & burn it to a usable DVD format 8)

Thanks, I believe I have DVD Flick on my home PC.

Yeah, having the mobile phone version (blackberry or ipod) is a great thing, isn't it?

Basically it depends on your DVD player.

We have two DVD players in our house, one does play mpgs and one doesn't.
FINE

Cool, my DVD player does play mpgs, but since I have DVD Flick, might as well make it universal.

All of my college chums in the dorm here just watched the movie musical for my birthday a couple of weeks ago, which I had never seen before, so we've all been in a Reefer Madness mood. I just watched the Mike solo version last week, so this was certainly a pleasant and appropriate surprise.

As with the Plan 9 riffs, I feel like there were a few lines here and there that Mike delivered better in the original riff, and a couple very funny lines got cut out, but overall, it was an improvement and a very enjoyable track.

That said, I'd prefer riffing unique films to re-riffing the same old films any day (no matter what the product description says, this riff was very similar to the solo riff). There are so many great, old public domain movies out there, why riff one more than once? Especially when the first commentary was so good?

I mean, come on, we're not Cinematic Titanic ;)

Insert Coin(s), congrats on watching Reefer Madness the Musical, it is a personal favorite of mine (plus Miss Bell is swell).

I can't believe you are in college, I listened to your pokemon Iriff and loved it!!  Wow props to you for being such a talented writer and riffer at such a young age, plus while dealing with a collegiate workload.  Anyways keep up the good work and make sure to enjoy college as much as you can while you are there!!


I have seen Mike's original Reefer Riff and am waiting until friday payday to buy this one, does everyone feel that it is different enough to warrant a purchase?

I just finished watching the new 3 person riff and it was one of the 5 funniest they've ever done.  It was awesome and now I crave Doritoes really badly.

Very funny Rifftrax. Although it was billed as being completely different than the original Mike only commentary, yet almost every riff he made was translated over word for word. Plenty of additional jokes, though, and I do think the multi-person format sound better and improves the overall fun tone of the Rifftrax.

FWIW, the MP3 will NOT sync with the Netflix-rentable version.

My usual process is to convert both the DVD audio and the Riff to 48Kbps WAV files align the sync line on both time-wise, then merge them. I aligned the two WAV files by the first sync line, but they are out of sync by 2.5 seconds by the second sync line and by 2min 12sec by the last sync line (I can only guess that the movie soundtrack's original conversion sample rate was not the same as the Riff's).

I wanted to get the colorized/Mike-riffed version anyway, so now it's on it's way. :)

Yeah, we don't know if it will work on any other versions besides the Legend Films version, so we don't recommend trying it.
