Frequently Asked Questions

NOTE: PLEASE TRY TO NOT REUPLOAD ANY SUBBED VIDEOS.

Because I can’t update and answer everyone’s questions, this FAQ is written to answer the most common questions that have been asked by a lot of people on this blog. Hopefully, you can find your answers here!

o1. Why can I not download any of the new subbed shows?

We are no longer posting any of our download links at this blog, and all of the download links can be found at Happy Island Sub’s forum at:

http://happyislandsubs.com

o2. I’ve registered at the forum, but I still can’t see the download links!

Our forum has a rule where members registered at the forum need a required number of posts before gaining access to the download links. To be able to download our subbed shows, you need a total of 30 POSTS at the FORUM, NOT ON THIS BLOG.
More information about this:

http://happyislandsubs.com/index.php?showtopic=9

o3. What are posts?

At many forums, posts are referring to replies. Posts are basically replying to forum threads, topics, discussions, newspaper articles, etc. If you don’t know how to post at our forum, we’ve created a tutorial to help you out:

o5. Help! I’ve downloaded the videos, but I can’t watch it? It either stops, or it doesn’t work!

For all mediafire links, we have a limit of how big our uploads can be. The videos are divided into different parts using the program HJSplit. We do this so people are able to re-join the videos back together easily to be able to watch the entire episode together, instead of having to watch in parts. You will know the videos are split using HJSplit because they have the extensions .001, .002, .003, etc. at the end of the video file name. Instructions on how to use HJ Split:

Another thing is that your computer may be missing a certain codec needed by the video file. If the first suggestion doesn’t work, please try downloading a codec pack to see if it fixes your video problems. I recommend http://www.cccp-project.net/

o6. The download link for this part is broken, could you re-upload please?

For some of these links, I will be able to help re-upload them for you. However, for a lot of the older subbed videos and RAW videos, I am SORRY, but I cannot help re-upload these for you. It is because I DO NOT have the original entire episode to download from, because most of the original video source is with Hailey (who is on HIATUS). Sorry again!

    hi, first of all thank you for answearing me so quick last time🙂
    I just just wanted to ask if happy island subbing team is going to sub the latest FT Island varitey shows they attended while promoting helo hello like Quiz That Changed The World and come to play (not sure if the ep aird yet)

  12. No problem! Yup, we really want to sub those shows along with their radio appearances, but we’re having a hard time translating them because we don’t have any active korean translators anymore and it’s sort of difficult to find chinese subs for most of these shows. But when we do find subs or hopefully more translators apply, then please look forward to them getting subbed.
    Thanks! And sorry ^^ hehe

  13. Hello ! I’m a french girl who is interested in Ft Island ! But there not are many Ft island’s video subbed in French, and I don’t really know much about Ft Island and where i can find kpop variety show or video.
    So want to see your video but I don’t really think I can make 30 posts.
    Besides, I’ve created a LJ where I’ll put all the fansub team, it will be a great ad for you. ( Even if i can’t access to it for the moment)
    Even though I think it’s normal to do the 30 posts, i’m in a fansub team myself I know that, I think for the international fan, you can just show your release when people post in the topic, like few teams or you could create a community LJ.
    It’s just a suggestion, don’t think I want to get roung the rules, if you don’t like that no problem i will do an effort. ^^
    And thank you to sub and share !

  14. Hello! Thanks for the suggestions😀
    I actually think that’s a great idea, and I think also posting at the FT Island livejournal community would be great too. But unfortunately, those are the rules and we can’t change it since we’ve stuck by those rules for a while. Also, it helps better to control the videos away from certain sites who make money off them (which we and other subbing teams have dealed with). We do have a public YT account: http://www.youtube.com/HappyIslandSubs where some of the shows are uploaded for everyone to watch without posting. We’re trying to update as best as we can though but most of our uploaders are busy right now hehe.
    Anyways, hwaiting on getting those 30 posts! ^_^ It’s actually really easy once you get started posting and knowing where everything is~

  15. Thank you for your fast reply !
    I didn’t notice you have an youtube account ! Sorry^^’
    But like donwload video is better I will try to be more interested in Ft Island and post on your forum.

  16. hi! i just recently became super interested in ft island and found out about good daddy🙂 i’m so happy you guys subbed it! ive registered at your forum and it’s awesome to see that other people are just as excited (so i dont feel lame :P). my question is, after i get 30 posts on the forums, will the download links automatically appear? how does that work? i’d really like to watch good daddy but i’m not sure how to find the videos on the website. thanks again so much!!

  17. I answered your question at the forum, you can check out the answer there ^_^

  18. yes, i just checked the forum! THANK YOU!😀 you guys are awesome for taking the time to sub videos❤

    Hi, I was wondering if the forum register option is still working because I tried several times today but it didn’t seem to work. I couldn’t register for the forum. Thank you ^^

  20. Oh sorry about that! The forum is actually under construction right now so registration had to be closed until it’s fixed. But I’ll let you know through here or twitter once the forum is back up ^^
