Subject: Why do encoders remove letter\pillarboxing?
I have just noticed that all the .sup subtitles (proper blu-ray subtitles) have the wrong aspect ratio on encodes (e.g. Silence's x265 Columbo collection) whose main video's resolution is not 16:9 (e.g. 4:3 and 21:9). The reason is because encoders remove the black bars around non-16:9 films\TV series. The video's new aspect ratio no longer matches the aspect ratio of the subtitle file, which remains 16:9. So the subtitles are squashed in one axis.
Why do they do it? Surely keeping the consistent areas of total black at the edges of the video wouldn't increase the resultant file size substantially if at all.
It's awful to rant about free stuff, but why spend your time encoding stuff incorrectly? Where's the satisfaction?
Where is a more appropriate sub to discuss video encoding stuff like this? I couldn't find one.
Subject: How to find movies with isolated audio files
While making his video about The Lion King (2019), Youtuber YMS was provided versions of the movie that contain various isolated audio tracks, including one with just the voiceover, one with just the musical score, etc. Does anyone know if there is a site where movies are archived in this fashion (or at least where I can get the files for the aforementioned film)?

Subject: Private Client IP Checker?
probably a dumb question but
Is there a way to make your own private IP Checker like the one in ipleak.net?
I don't want to have to rely on websites to check what my torrent client's IP is.
Optimally I would like to have my own magnet link I can paste into qBittorrent and it tells me my IP that it is connected too.

Subject: Site where you can read books in the web browser?
So I have a pretty boring job and I used to pass the time by reading. My work computer has very limited internet access, with the main problem being that downloads are disabled so I can't download PDFs.
I used to read all my books through zlib by opening the PDF in browser, but that's no longer possible as we all know.
So are there any other sites where I can read the book in the browser instead of having to download it?
P.S. our email also seems to block incoming emails with PDFs attached. Most of them anyway

I just wanna use the GPU passthrough feature that ig only the pro edition offers. I went to go look at how much pro would cost and I nearly had a heart attack. I pay less for my car insurance monthly. There anyway to get a key from somewhere? I'm not gonna pay 200 bucks just for 1 feature.
Subject: Wanna make a quick $10?
So I haven’t been in the pirating game since I was in highschool back when all you needed was utorrent and thepiratebay. I used to pay for adobe cc but just can’t afford it anymore, so I’m willing to pay one of you fine folk $10 to basically hop on discord with me and hold my hand through the adobe cc installation, then I’ll cash app/Venmo you or however you’d like to receive the money!
I know I could follow the wiki but after reading through it for 20 minutes and trying it, all the websites sketch me out and I’d rather skip the headache.
