DeAdfly

So, I’ve come to a place(=network) where you can’t access Adf.ly website. I download TV shows a lot, since a lot of TV shows download link is masked/hidden with adf.ly service, I can’t access the real download page because it isn’t redirected properly. Finally I decided to create a PHP script that decode this adf.ly URL into it’s real URL.
Here’s the final result (I know it’s ugly, but it works.. 😛 ):
http://demo.ahowto.net/deadfly/

de-adf.ly
Although the site is created using PHP, I will not share the script. Why? Because a lot of webmasters (including me) gaining revenue from adf.ly, I don’t want this kind of script kill those revenue source. It’s for personal use only.

Ytconv.net added new 3GP video format

Yes, YtConv.net already supported 3gp video format. The new 3gp format is subsidary.
What’s the different from the old 3gp:

  1. different video resolution. it’s 240p, the video size (width x height) is 320×240
  2. better video quality
  3. guarantee that you will not get any ‘server is busy’ message that you usually see when converting to the old 3gp format. The 3GP video is taken directly from Youtube server, therefore no need to convert it first.
  4. faster conversion, in fact, it’s instant after grabbing progress is completed.
  5. in many case, the file size is smaller than the old one.

However, there are some drawbacks:

  1. the video might not be playable in old phone (I haven’t tested it on old Nokia phone, the video is playable in Nokia Asha 303)
  2. the grabbing progress take longer than the old one. That’s because the 3gp video taken directly from Google/Youtube server without converting it in YtConv server.
  3. monotonous audio channel (this is default from Youtube) and the audio rate is only at 22KHz. So, the audio quality might be worse from the old one.

If you are using YtConv advanced tricks, the “hq” parameter for this new 3gp format is 6

ity.im review

What is ity.im?
ity.im is kind of adf.ly with a little twist. You got paid when you shorten your URL.

What’s the difference between ity.im and adf.ly?
There are some pros regarding ity.im compared to other paid-URL-shorter:

  • there is other ways other than shorting your URL to collect money: placing banner ads and pop-up ads (and referral)
  • eCPM rate is way too high compared to adf.ly — even for Asian-based country. I can make $24 per day using ity.im compared to $16 a day using adf.ly.
  • instant payment, no need to wait until end of the month until you got paid. Once you requested payment, the system will process your request and send you payment within days. They promised instant payment after request! My first payment came after 2 days of requested time.

Ity.im payment proof?
This is my first payment from ity.im:

first payment from ity.im

Do you still use it?
NO! Why? Because ity.im only paid me on my first request, my second and third request just being ignored by them. Here’s my request screen shot:

scammed by ity.im

my ity.im pending payment requests

As you can see, my second request had been longed for more than 2 weeks (remember that they promised instant payment) and still no money coming to my paypal. That’s enough reason for me to lift their ads code from my site and move on.

Final words: Stay away from ity.im, it’s highly likely a scam!

Pro tips using YtConv.net

YTConv.net is a website that provide free service to convert your Youtube video into an mp3, mp4, flv, 3gp and avi. The converted video then can be downloaded into your PC or mobile phone.

Tips #1 : Access YTconv.net faster simply by changing “youtube.com” into “ytconv.net” in your video URL.
Example:
you want to convert this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVw7eJ0vGfM into an mp3, you just need to change word “youtube.com” from the URL into “ytconv.net”, so, your new URL would be: http://www.ytconv.net/watch?v=YVw7eJ0vGfM
Open this new URL into your browser, see what happened 😀

Tips #2: this is complementary for tips #1, suppose you want to convert to other format other than mp3, you need to add “&hq=” into your new URL. This is the full list of “&hq=” value:
&hq=0 –> convert into mp3 (192kbps)
&hq=1 –> convert into mp3 (256kbps)
&hq=2 –> convert into flv
&hq=3 –> convert into 3gp
&hq=4 –> convert into mp4
&hq=5 –> convert into avi

Example:
you want to convert this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVw7eJ0vGfM into an mp4, you just need to change word “youtube.com” from the URL into “ytconv.net” and add “&hq=4” into the URL, so, your new URL would be: http://www.ytconv.net/watch?v=YVw7eJ0vGfM&hq=4
Open this new URL into your browser, see what happened 😀

Tips #3: bypass Adf.ly ads. If you, for some reason (such as: the countdown counter did not work), do not want to see adf.ly ads when you click on “DOWNLOAD” button, then do not click the “DOWNLOAD” button. Instead, wait for 60 seconds and then the download will start automatically without needing to see any adf.ly ads.

Tips #4: always download the file from ytconv.net using download accelerator. It is compatible for most common download accelerator. If you don’t want to install any, you can always use DownThemAll add-on for Firefox.

 

That’s it for now.. I’m tired…
