    Hey everyone!

    We are in the process of completely revamping our multimedia section and need your help. The main aim of the revamp is to re-upload everything to our own servers so that they remain there for as long as possible. Pretty much every link from older eras has been dead for a while. We are also trying to organise everything into an easy to use system that favours high-quality recordings such as FLAC and HD transport streams.

    We are asking our users to comb through their Coldplay folders and upload any audio recordings of concerts in FLAC quality. Calls for video and lossy audio will come later but for now, we are only looking for FLAC audio concerts! Please post links to as much concerts as you have, preferably using mega.nz. We will alert you when we have downloaded them so you can then remove them. There is no need to organise anything, we will do that for you!

    Here is a sneak peek at what we have done already:

    No problem! I know I have tons of stuff on my external HD. Also, you purely want HQ or professionally recorded stuff right? For example I have an entire VLV show (Mansfield 2009) that someone recorded. It's not the greatest quality, but the entire show is there. Not sure if you want stuff like that though.

    Great initiative! I'll contribute. I assume we post the links here in this thread?

    Professional soundboard recordings are obviously preferred but I am still hoping to post as many audience recordings as possible!

    Here's a first one.
    2014-06-12 Tokyo Dome City Hall, Tokyo, Japan

    The spectrogram makes me suspicious of the actual losslessness of the audio, but I myself didn't convert the files in any way.

    Also what about these? Will they be (or are they already) up? The threads are still there but the associated resources don't seem to exist anymore. Just so I know whether or not to bother with the ones of those I have.

    Ok awesome! When I post, I will be sure to separate them so it's easy to sort.

    Alright, so I should, for instance, upload the 2014-07-01 Royal Albert Hall concert, even though it was an “official” resource on the site previously?

    Just took a look at that recording. The quality is pretty bad, that was the only GS concert I had prior to this and I refused to post it because it sounds terrible!

    Yes, most of the Ghost Stories concerts sound really bad. Looking at the spectrograms of the other concerts I have in a lossless format, none of them seem to be truly lossless. Perhaps the band seeded the radio stations with a lossy stream or something.

    Anyway, here's the only other two Ghost Stories concerts I have in a lossless format. Both seem to have had a lossly conversion somewhere along the line.

    2014-04-26 Kurhaus, Baden-Baden, Germany
    2014-05-28 Casino, Paris, France ← This one's in .shn but it's a lossless format so it can be converted to FLAC without further loss of information.

    Edit: The recording of the Sydney you just uploaded sounds pretty bad. I guess it's an audience recording? I have an MP3 of the radio broadcast which sounds much better, if you're interested.

    I think it is because most of them were recorded from digital radio and not analogue. The bitrates are therefore very low. Anyway, thanks for these two, I can add them to the collection now!

    I downloaded a lot of the GS concerts from Coldplaying Multimedia. :blush:

    I'm not sure in what format they are, a lot in mp3 format, but that's how I got them from here.

    upload_2018-4-3_19-38-40.png

    Are there any you'd like me to upload?
