Download Bergensbanen in HD

Kategorier: English-articles, NRK & Video


Friday November 27th, over 1,2 million Norwegians watched parts of «Bergensbanen» on NRK2. The longest documentary ever? At least the longest we have made, almost 7 1/2 hours, showing every minute of the scenic train ride between Bergen on the Norwegian west coast, crossing the mountains to the capital of Oslo.

Bergensbanen is 100 years in 2009, and the documentary was a wild idea from NRK staff that came through, and was, surprisingly, a big success.

On Twitter, this became the thing to talk about in Norway. Over 1 000 tweets with #bergensbanen were posted, and even more when we ran the program again two days later.

Norwegian version – see «Bergensbanen – klar for avgang»

bergensbanen

Now we want to give the material to our viewers, the whole thing, for download.

The documentary had picture-in-picture clips with videos about Bergensbanen, a reporter interviewing people on the train, music and two cameras pointing to the sides of the train. Because of rights, we had to remove the music and many videoclips, so we decided to make a clean front camera version for this download. It’s recorded on a Sony 700 camera in XDCAM HD 1080 50i. The camera has a 30 seconds buffer, making it possible to switch disks when needed. So we have a continuous recording of 7 hours.

Bittorrent

The original file was 165 GB, too much for most people to download. We coded a 720 50P, 1280×720 version, resulting in a 22 GB file. You need a filesystem on your drive that takes files bigger than 4 GB. Most external drives have a FAT32 filesystem, which has a limit of 4 GB. NTFS and HFS+ works fine.

Download the torrentfile here.

Update: The original HD-file is now out

We have published a HUGE 246 GB file. The article describing it is only in Norwegian, but the basics are: It’s an Apple ProRes file, it’s 246 GB and the adress to the torrentfile is:
http://nl.nrk.no/torrent/bergensbanen/Bergensbanen.1080i50.ProRes422.Nrk.mov.torrent

  1. Framifrå tiltak, men hva med å også poste separate time for time-torrenter slik at man slipper å laste ned de traurige strektningene (ie. Hønefoss -> Oslo S)? 🙂

  2. Artig at det var 1,4 (engelske?) seere her, mens i den norske artikkelen så var det bare 1,2 mill.
    Supert tiltak!

  3. Vil bare si at dere har tullet til deinterlacingen, og dobblet alle frames, istedet for å ha 25p, har dere 50p, ekstremt waste of space.

    Just a slight disapointment: the sound doesn’t appear to be the original sound; at times the train is stopped in a station and we still hear a moving train sound. Is it just me having synchronisation problems?

    The choice of a torrent is fine with me, allowing a download in one piece without an unwieldly reassembly in the end. The download took me just 735 minutes.

    where we are fighting just to maintain uncensored net access ( http://nocleanfeed.com ), let alone ensure proper broadband for everybody.

    In short – 22gb is beyond my net access, so it’d be great if either

    a) you made a smaller version available

    or
    b) the journey was broken up into sections, so we could at least taste some of the journey.

    cheers from oz~!

  43. Greg/Hummel,
    I originally tried playing it using QuickTine on a Windows XP PC and had the same problem that the black inside tunnels appears as grey noise.

    However I also tried Miro and VLC players and both of those render the video correctly. Both of those players are freeware.

  46. Normally, I can download a 22 mb file in about 3 or 4 minutes. Thanks to torrent, it is projected to take 22 days. Not worth it.

  47. The 9,5 minute version is shown on my blog for the next two days or so. It has been put there as an example for our Dutch Railways (NS) and the rail maintenance company called ProRail.

    It seems both can’t handle one single snowflake. Almost all train traffic in Holland suddenly came to a grinding halt since the very first snowflake fell last thursday morning.

    Again, let Norske Bergbanen be their example!

  53. The Poverty Jet Set » Norway by Train

    […] A TV station in Norway decided (brilliantly) that it would be fun to film the entire length of one of their most scenic train routes in HD. All 7.5 hours of the ride. The results are stunning and hypnotic. Reminds me a lot of the Norwegian film about a retiring train conductor, O’Horten, that I projected at Telluride a couple years ago. Below is a 10-minute clip of the trip, but you can download the entire thing here. […]

  54. Congratulations for the idea, but nobody outside your country will be able to download the show.
    Started the download on 12/23 at 10am, at 6pm I have only 230Mb downloaded meaning it will take one year for a full download. NRK should install the program on more computers/servers to share the show as most employees are in vacation.

  55. @ranopolo, I disagree completely. I’m in the US and was able to download the entire video very quickly. I think your understanding of the nature of torrents is slightly limited.

    @Øyvind Solstad I understand. However, not everyone has newer televisions on which to watch this, as even CRT’s can burn in. I agree with the need to have it there, perhaps move it around a little, or make it slightly more transparent. Anyway it doesn’t impact me directly, just a thought for others. Love the video, keep up the good work.

  56. I have a project in mind at home that this footage would be perfect for, but I would want the original 1080i50 footage without the tunnel and station pop-up text. Ideally the corner logo would go away too. Thank you for bringing this to the web. I had no trouble with it on bittorrent.

    I’m hoping that the project is published widely.. if this is interesting to you with full credit for the video, please contact me.

  58. The footage looks great on my HDTV. The 1080 source would look even better. 🙂

    The blue popups and the …DING!… that goes along with them are very distracting. The dings are too loud relative to the ambient noise, and the popups would’ve been done better as text at the bottom left corner, «MTV music video» style.

    But hey, everyone’s a critic. 😉

  59. Frank Eivind Rundholt

    Thanks to the CC-license that this video have, I’ve made a time laps (fast forward) version of the video that is only 7 minutes 14 seconds long. You can watch it on my blog with description of the process making it (click here for the Norwegian version of the post).

    Only 1 day left for the rerun of Bergensbanen, I might watch (part of) it again.

  60. @Marc

    Thank you for your king words but my understanding of Torrents is not sightly limited, 5 to 10 seeds max and 1 to 2 peers max is sightly limited. This download will have no life if nobody want to share it.

    My download is still running, after 30 hours 1Gb downloaded that is why I suggested NRK2 to install the movie on few computers allowing uploads

  61. Frank Eivind Rundholt

    Thanks to the CC-license provided with the video, I’ve made a time laps (fast forward) version of it that is 7 minutes 14 seconds long. You can watch it on my blog with description of how I made it (this is a English translation of my originaly Norwegian post).

  62. @Øyvind – I am only seeing a few peers too. It’s not only Ranpolo. I’ve tried it from several computers (at home, at work etc…), using several different bittorent clients, and all see only about 5 peers at most. There is something wrong on the tracker end I’ll bet, but I can’t offer any suggestions as to what it could be!

  63. Not the tracker.. if it was the tracker this is what everyone would see. Still hundreds of people on the torrent. There are a hundred reasons why you might only see a few. Google, it will help you.

  64. What the Holidays Mean to Us

    […] from a holiday party. Which is why, this holiday season, I really enjoyed watching a video of the Norwegian Bergensbanen. Just a train, driving through the snow. Awesome. Watch it, and then go set your tree on […]

  65. Wish you would make a Blu-ray of the entire broadcast and make it in NTSC as well. I would like to purchase a copy for the US.

  66. I downloaded via torrent so many thanks seeders. Download time about 48 hours, saved on back-up drive.

    We are playing the video on TV via S-video cable. kids, aged 4 and 5 are working on little projects but following the video off and on. there are many shots that continue through tunnels but a sign drops telling the name and length of the tunnels. The kids like to count along for the shorter tunnels until the train emerges so the video darkness actually ends up being fun for them. We are also looking up the towns on Google maps following the route the train takes. On the whole a lot of fun for all and a chance to look at Norway from here in Vermont.

    Cheers and thanks again NRK and all involved.

  67. All – it turns out that certain clients do not agree with the tracker. I tried Transmission on a couple machines and that only saw a few peers. I also tried command-line bittorrent clients on a couple remote machines on entirely different networks with the same result. However, Vuze works fine, and now I’m getting much better speeds. I’m puzzled as to why this is, but I’m happy that it’s working well now. Perhaps others with problems should try Vuze?

  68. a fabulous film of the Bergen to Oslo train link,congratulations to those that made it..certainly a magical
    journey,a film that must have positive vibes for Norway and
    its professionalism in the public services,which can not be said
    for the train services,and recent farcical events with the
    Eurostar link between Paris and london which came to a halt due
    to a few flurries of snow shame on Britain !

  69. Tommy Helgevold

    Pure awesomeness!

    Imagine making a Blu-Ray PS3 game with this footage, the footage is so smooth that it’s perfectly usable for a VIDEO GAME, eg. shooting down UFO’s etc…

    😉

  70. Say, folks at NRK: How’s about making a set of regular, not BluRay DATA dvds and put the 22GB files on it? At the rate I have here, even with HUNDREDS of seeders , the transmission rate varies over a factor of more that 100 !!!

    Set any reasonable price and mail it – I’ll be happy to pay it, for I despair of ever getting the download completed correctly, AND , in any case, there should be a market for the DVDs that I am requesting, from many people who face a similar problem that I have here. Even tho the DL link often runs at a rate of 4 – 6 Mb, it does so ONLY from an FTP or HTTP download site: I have never had any torrent anywheres near the direct DL speed – right now, it’s at 28kbps, with a total of 485 M downloaded in the past 5 hours.

    Thank you – – – Walt Storer

  71. This footage is absolutely beautiful. Norway, you are simply gorgeous. I am watching this for the second time through – this time following the route on Google Maps. Please make the 1020p footage available. This is stunning! Thank you to whoever took the risk to make this happen. Kudos to all involved. Question: When was this footage shot? It looks to be in late Autumn. Was it 2009?

  72. Glad to see I wasn’t the only one following along on google maps 🙂

    The scenery often reminded me of Oregon in the US.. only I saw just the one «trailer park» on this video. 😛

  73. Please keep seeding the torrent! I’m trying to download it now, but getting very little to no bandwidth!

  74. random question.. has anyone tried to stream this to the ps3 through a dlna server? It plays perfectly in windows but I can’t get it to stream to the ps3 to save my life.

  75. Concerning a PS3 game: try to find Railfan (Japan only)
    http://valkorn.livejournal.com/477366.html – photos and video from Railfan

    To stream this on PS3 use AviSynth and FFMpegSource: http://code.google.com/p/ffmpegsource/
    There will be a delay on the first run (index will be generated), but after that it’s ok.

    As for downloading speed, some torrent clients have a problem when downloading extremely large files: they slow down. Try another client.

    I’ve reencoded this video to 720×400, it’s now 4GB in size. Torrent is on TPB and other ‘pirate’ sites, also here: http://textual.ru/BergensBanen400p.torrent
    Quality is good, but HD version is hands-down better. If you have resources, download the whole 22GB.

    Thanks to NRK, this video is awesome.

  76. Frank Eivind Rundholt

    @Ilja Zverev Thanks for the 4GB version. I was thinking of recoding the video myself, but now I don’t have to. I will download and seed, even though I don’t need this version of the video.

  77. Last ned Bergensbanen i HD | Frank Eivinds verden

    […] har Ilja Zverev (se kommentaren hans på NRKbeta) konvertert Bergensbanen til 720×400 og bare 4GB. Den kan lastes ned her: […]

  78. NRK please – make this available via DVD so us «ex-pats» can purchase copies and send them back home without having to download it first. A job well done!

  79. @Ilja Zverev: Your suggestion leads me down a path to possible resolution, but doesn’t provide any thought of what the issue is or what needs to be done. I certainly don’t want to down-convert the video… but otherwise have no idea what your assumed next step might be

  80. Marc, create a file bergensbaume.avs with the following line:
    FFVideoSource(«BergensBanen720p_mLogo.mp4»)
    Install AviSynth and extract ffms2.dll and ffms2.avsi into program files\avisynth\plugins.
    Then open bergensbaume.avs in any media player and wait.
    After the train started moving, close the video and open in on PS3 through media server. It should work.

    I don’t know what DLNA is, but this mp4 is not suitable for streaming, so without any conversion PS3 won’t read it.

    The video index in source video is not in the beginning of mp4 file, but in the end. For some reason, ffdshow (used in mencoder which is used in ps3 media servers) fails to open such files, but ffmpeg and VLC do it fine.

    Also, NRK, I’d be happy to buy this video on blu-ray, FYI.

  81. Thanks NRK for this great video! But I’ll also echo the multiple requests for access to the original 165 GB file. Disk space is cheaper and broadband more ubiquitous that you may be giving us credit for!

  82. Well folks, The download finally finished; started about 1830 on 25 December, finished at about 1900 on 29 December, or 96 hours – actually about 5 hours less , since I had to stop the DL several times for unrelated processes. That is on a 4 -5 mbps link, but OF COURSE the name «torrent» being a misnomer ( peak DL rate about 25% of available) is where most of the time went.

    Otherwise, the file is perfect and totally amazing – I’ve never seen any other project such as this before, and for NO charge – Thank you NRK etal!

    The only way I would be interested in the original 165GB file is if it was distributed on disk – even so, that’s about 40 regular DVDs!

    Happy New Year to all –

    Walt S.

  83. @Ilja Zverev: Thanks for the detailed explanation, both on how to convert and what the root cause of streaming failure is. However, while I was successfully able to run the command and the operation performed as you stated, the video file remained unchanged (verified by no change in modified timestamp), though it did create a filename.mp4.ffindex (59.6mb). I even copied this new file to the media share alongside the main filename.mp4 to stream and received the same corrupted data error. Any other thoughts are always appreciated.

  84. Will only play in vlc, nothing else will render this movie.

    Installed codec packs, ffd show, media splitters etc etc, wont open in the editors i have tried.

    gpot and avid codec show no information, and vlc says avc1 codec, but it wont play on other players.

    My goal is to use windows media player 11 and an xbox 360 to play it on my tv.

    Can anyone help? thank you, takk.

  85. Ok i made progress, installing nero reencode makes it play on every player!

    Xbox says no to playing still, nero encode will also re encode it too.

  86. Thank you so much for posting this. What an amazingly beautiful country. It’s hard to imagine just how much more wonderful scenery there is outside of the view of the camera. I feel like I’ve taken a trip to Norway but didn’t have to deal with airport security or the 14 hour flight. Thanks again!

  87. Ok after a huge amount of messing about, here is how to get this file to be recognised as a proper mp4, including the xbox 360 and i assume ps3

    1)crop/Split video with software called yamb (editing then split), ie take one second off the start of the video, this enables mkvmerge to see the file.

    2) Open this new file with mkvmerge(gui) this will convert the new MP4 to MKV format.

    4)Open this mkv file in yamb and choose creation and create an MP4 for the mkv file.

    You have no idea how long that took me to get it working lol.

  88. @danielbb: Step 1 alone worked for the PS3. I trimmed the second off the front, and streamed it to the PS3 and it played perfectly. Comparing the GSpot results for this new file versus the original, only difference is the version of the MP4.. (v2 in original, v1 in the modified file from yamb). Thank you greatly for pointing the way…

  89. Yes marc, i found that after step one alone everything would see and play it fine, accept the xbox 360 which needed the addictional steps, thats microsoft for you lol. The mkv software fixes something to do with framerate

    Im glad it helped you. 🙂

  103. Hallo from Greece;) I downloaded the movie and I must say it is the most complete cab ride footage out there!Bravo!Now i have some question about the train…What train is this?It’s a loco hauled train or a EMU??I thing it’s a loco hauled train with NSB Electric locomotive class El 18..but maybe I’m wrong…Does anyone know?:)

  104. Thanks, Bjørn!

    If we’re on an El 18 locomotive, who do we hear laughing and talking almost continuously during the trip? The conversation made me think it was an EMU, but the obvious lack of tilt ruled out Class 73. Quite a puzzle!

    Still to discover: what day was it filmed?

    – Larry (looking forward to viewing the next stage of the adventure, east from Flå!)

  105. Thank you Bjørn H;)

    Larry I had the same sence too because of the laughing and talking..The sound gives you a sence that you are in a coach behind the locomotive among the passengers…Also the horn of the loco sounds very distant in some moments..

  108. Kaare K. Johnsen

    Jeg har et problem som jeg håper noen kan hjelpe meg med: Når mp4-filen (22 GB) skal redigeres i TMPGEnc Authoring Works, så skjer det merkelige at alt som er svart inni tunnelene, blir hvitt! (Når jeg bare ser på videoen med f.eks. VLC, er alt OK.) Er det noen som har en løsning på å få det svarte til å bli værende svart? Det blir for øvrig riktig god billedkvalitet når 22 GB-versjonen gjøres om til DVD og fordeles på fire DVD-er á 4.7 GB, så jeg trenger ikke monsterfilen.

    Takk til NRK som har lagt ut videoen til nedlasting – veldig bra! Det er jo denne versjonen med kamera bare rett fremover som burde ha vært vist på TV, uten all den forstyrrende musikken og de delvis forstyrrende bi-innslagene (de kunne man heller vist i et eget program om Bergensbanen).

    Men det er synd at filmen – og opplevelsen – blir skjemmet av at kamera står merkbart skjevt helt fra Nesbyen til Oslo, dvs i 3 timer, nesten halve filmen. Først etter halvannen time, i Vikersund, gjøres det et mislykket forsøk på å rette det opp, og et nytt mislykket forsøk i Drammen. Så jeg håper dere passer bedre på neste gang!

    Til de som lurer på når det ble filmet, så har jeg lest et sted at det var 9. oktober 2009. (In English: It was filmed on October 9th, 2009.)

  109. Kaare K. Johnsen

    Please excuse my above comment in Norwegian, I overlooked that this page was in English. So I’ll rephrase my comment in English:

    I hope someone can help me with a big problem with the mp4 video (the 22 GB file): When I open it in TMPGEnc Authoring Works, something strange happens – everything that is pitch black inside a tunnel, turns to white in TMPGEnc. And it is still white when I output the file in DVD format. But when I just show the mp4 file in VLC or some other media player, it’s OK – black is black. So how can I get TMPGEnc to NOT change pitch black to white?

    To those who wonder when the film was shot: I read somewhere that it was on October 9th, 2009.

    It is a bit strange that since so many likes norwegian landscapes and trains, and ofc this was a huge success, the norwegians should do this to other parts of Norway too. Like «Flåmbanen» and the one «Dombås-Åndalsnes» and maybe with bus and a ferry to Molde 🙂 (with a camera on the ferry, not bus on ferry).
    Why just Bergensbanen, when this was such a success and good advertisement for Norway? Be creative!

    • Kaare K. Johnsen (svar til Nikolai Hoftun)

      Flåmsbanen minute by minute has been made – it was sent on TV in September 2010. NRK has also filmed the route for the bicycle race Birkebeinerrittet, filmed from a motorbike, and you can watch it here (not sent on TV): http://nrk.no/multimedia/1.7244771
