Courtesy of Encore+. Only a couple of episodes have been posted as I write this, but hopefully there's a whole bunch more to come!

I swear that I have the worst luck on the planet, or some could argue the best. But I predicted this would happen, especially after sending several emails to encore+.

Context:

For the past several months, close to a year at this point, I have been working on a project. I teamed up with CHIPPER (one of the original BWOC encoders, and encoder of dozens of other great shows). He was recording BWOC, which was airing on a french-dubbed TV channel, and I was working on muxing in english audio.

Of course, with my luck, this wasn't easy, and it wasn't a straight demux/remux. It essentially involved me muxing audio in 2 minute increments, then making adjustments, and repeating the process. I finished almost all of season 1, and then we realized that a french streaming website had released all 3 seasons on their platform, for free, dubbed in french. But (my luck again), they were better quality than the TV recordings. I was demoralized at this point, because I knew that I wouldn't be able to just add my newly created audio, to these new *streaming service encodes*, because of the process I had gone through, so I knew that I'd have to start the project all over again, because there was no point in using tv encodes, when the streaming service files were better quality.

I ended up taking a few months off, due to starting a new job, and house renovations. I just built a new computer and was about to start the project again, and then these are released.

Some would say that this is great news, but It's a punch to the gut, because of all the hours I've put into this project (although I knew it was always a possibility). Now, I could be jumping the gun, and getting too excited, because there's a chance they won't release every episode, but at least we know it's on their radar now, and maybe there's a good chance. So, for the time being, I have every french-dubbed episode backed up, in great quality, and If i see BWOC episodes pulled from their youtube channel, I will know that they lost the rights to the show (similar thing happened with "radio active"), and I will start the project over again, and fill in the missing episodes.

The future looks good for BWOC, to say the least!

all episodes will be coming, and they will not have any issues with rights, they only release videos that are in the clear

@Juffin

I'm referring to the rights that they have obtained. Everything that they release, they obtain the rights to. But these deals don't last forever, and sometimes they fall through. This has happened with a lot of content that they've put up. So i'm just hoping that this agreement is set in stone, and won't be terminated for any reason.

I only know from reading theit comments. They said both, that all episodes are coming and they only release videos after rights are obtained. Seeing how they only just started to upload i think were safe

Looks like the first season is done and they've moved onto the second season. The other streaming ones are still better quality (less cropped, more detail), but the YT ones are definitely a massive improvement.

The continuity of season 2 has been off. Apparently they are playing them in the order they were written, season 1 all seemed to make sense although I'm not sure if the original order had any issues.

Maybe season 2 was originally shown in the correct order.

Man it's been ages but I got the higher quality episodes in my recommended after watching the old grainy ones I used to subscribe to on youtube and ran here to tell you all but not surprisingly everyone still active on here already knows.

I hope everyone is well!

Just when all hope seemed lost, Encore+ has started adding season 3. This is it folks, 20 years, and we're finally going to get the full series in the best condition we could hope for

I stumbled upon this youtube channel recently and I thought of my days here, wishing and begging for an inevitably overpriced and shoddy quality DVD box set. Well, past Mer, here it is, and it's even better than 2003 you could have imagined: it's streaming 480p media delivered with personalized ads! (Just kidding, I use an adblocker.)

It's really heartwarming reading the comments and seeing this dream come true for hundreds, maybe thousands, of fans of the show. I hope this big messy world is treating everyone well, and I'm glad we have a chance to enjoy Big Wolf again in some capacity.

I've been watching Legacies, a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries, and the campy humor reminds me so much of BWOC. Check it out if you need a new fix with a bunch of hot people in it.

Is there any sites or tools people have been using to rip the current youtube videos, I remember I had the episodes on their old vhs ripped quality on my ipod and would like get the new high quality ones, just in case they ever get taken down. I could just use OBS or something to record them but was wondering if there was an easier way.

Also apologizes if this is against the forum rules and should have posted this is the episode trading forum, but since this is the most active sub I figure it would just be easier to ask here.

@OHYEAHshesarobot

It's safe to say that A LOT of people have been backing these up from the beginning, so they'll be safe for the future, in case Encore+ takes them down.

If you want to obtain them by yourself now, then there are dozens of ways. Jdownloader, Video DownloadHelper, Youtube-dl, just to name a few. Basically any video downloading addon for any browser will be able to download off of youtube.

That being said, please support Encore+ by liking their videos, and not posting any of the episodes here. Encore+ finally gave us what we've been asking for, so it's nice to show some love

I've definitely noticed the drop off in quality in season 3. The fringe characters are missed.

I've been grabbing copies of these as they're upped. There's a 720p and 1080p on the site I've been using - I notice no difference in quality between them.

I heard that there's a possibility that BWOC will be removed after April 1st if they can't renew the license, I don't know if its true but encore+ did tweet that out that some shows might be taken down, so to enjoy them before they are.

And.... they're gone.

Luckily, they are kept safe and secure

At the end of the day, gotta thank Encore+ for giving us something that we've only dreamed about for decades. May have only been up for a short while, but it's all we needed. Now we can help to preserve the legacy of BWOC even further, and share it with newer generations.

I have them all backed up, and they will be safe forever.

With that being said, it looks like Encore+ has regained the rights to the show again, and the BWOC episodes are back on youtube! I'm honestly so surprised to see this happen, but it has, so please support them
