BSG Deleted Scenes

I was going to go to bed an hour ago, but opted to check out the deleted scenes on the 2.5 set instead. I will have much, much more to say about what I viewed later. Some really great stuff that would have made a huge difference had it been included in the episodes and it bothers me more than it probably should to think about what could have been. There is also some stuff I'm glad was cut. But I'm also pissed off about something else. I assumed like the 2.0 set they would include the deleted scenes up at the site plus a few additional scenes. No. All the deleted scenes are new and they included none of the scenes at the Pulse site. >:( Granted, some of them were pretty unimportant, but I loved the scenes that were cut from 'Black Market'. So my question to you technically inclined people out there, is there a way to download and save the clips from the Pulse site? I doubt they'll be there forever and I'd like to have copies (even so-so ones) for the future.

Oh, heavens yes, I'm with you! Ugh! That's so annoying. And intriguing... my set's being shipped to me right now, so I look forward to the ensuing conflicted emotions this will no doubt result in. *frowns*
I hope to get me mega post up tonight regarding the deleted scenes and my take on them. I have a theory as to why the scenes on the site weren't included, but the decision still sucks. :(
i think i know how i could do that, but i can only attempt it on my own laptop. my dad's, which i'm using right now, doesn't have the programs i ned.

will post them in my journal if it works out.
Cool and much apprciated if you can direct me as to how to do it. I recall Firefox having an extension that allows you to download some types of video, but I'm not sure if it worked with the Pulse site.
it doesn't work with that, sadly. :(

i use a program called Camstudio. this baby simply records (image and sound) whatever goes on on your computer screen. you can select the area you want to record, and it'll save everything as an avi file.
Hi,

Hope you don't mind me gatecrashing your LJ - I'm familiar with your journal via a couple of BSG comms and stop by sometimes because you have some great Lee-chatter.

Anyway, if you're not fussed about the quality try this:

That's all the files zipped, but like I said, very poor quality. The reason for the low quality is I'm doing what a previous poster described - snagging what's actually playing on my screen with a programme called SnagIt8. Some other screen capture programmes don't work as they show video files as a big black square. SnagIt works fine but doesn't have decent audio capture, so I snag the audio separately then resynch it in Windows Movie Maker. It's a bit...convoluted, but I'm an obsessed archiver of such things. The audio synchs back really nicely, but the video quality is irreparably degraded. If you're interesting I also have crappy quality copies of the S3 video blogs and the R&D animations from the end of the episodes.

Anyway, that was probably TMI. If you want to share these, feel absolutely free to upload and distribute as you see fit and don't feel the need to keep my name attached either.

If you're feeling generous a brief rundown of the 2.5 deleted scenes would be appreciated. Being stuck in the UK without a multi region DVD kinda sucks. ;)
Wow. Thank you! I'm at work right now, but I'll definitely take a look when I get home. I appreciate you commenting and making the kind offer. :)

I'm working on a write up today which will hopefully be completed this evening. I'm on page three and I still have three sets of deleted scenes to go. I do not know the meaning of the word brief. ;)

Oh, and check out wisteria_'s LJ. She uploaded a few of the clips to You Tube.
Downloaded successfully! Thanks! I see what you mean about the video quality, but, hey, it's better than what I can do which is nothing. And I've got enough footage of Jamie to know what he looks like, I just want a record of what could have been and I'm totally paranoid that Sci-Fi will someday pull the fottage off the site.

Btw, I did my mega post recapping the the deleted scenes on the discs. ;-)

Pretty much why I have them.

And thanks for the mega recapping post. :)
I have been working ona review for my site of season 2.5, but it is being held up because disc 2 won't play right (finally got the deleted scenes to play right this morning , but Black Market is the only episode that plays on that disc). I just hope Universal sends me a replacement.
I bought two sets and so far have been testing the one I'm sending to a friend overseas just to make sure there are no problems. I was fearful of glitches or missing discs. So far, so good. I hope they send you a replacement.
Universal did send me Roar the complete series and I just received Stargate Sg-1 season 9 from Fox (which now releases MGM stuff). Now I wonder why did they felt the need to do a special edition for Point Break (which comes out next month).
Do you know anyone interested in a copy of The Unit Season 1 (since I ended up with an extra one)? Also I think I may get rid of House season 1 (even though I don't mind watching House and yet I don't think I will be watching season 1 again).
I don't think anyone I know watches 'The Unit'. Though Summer Glau has a reoccuring role this season so I may check out an ep.
