~ Stage6 hack ~

I have been watching many movies which are hosted on stage6 for the past one year. Most of the movies or videos I watched where referenced from either DivxTube or DivxLive sites.

When I tried to search the Stage6 site for the concert videos for few of my favorite thrash metal bands, I was unsuccesful. I approached the google dorks way, which still didn't make any significance difference to the search results.

Finally, today I found a easy way to search for videos hosted on Stage6. My search approach holds good for those videos that have been tagged by users.

The default search would return a list based on top ratings, which normally wouldn't be the one you are looking for. Instead I construct the URL for stage6, it isn't that complex. Follow the steps,

1) URL Pattern: http://www.stage6.com/videos/tag:[tag_name]
For Ex: http://www.stage6.com/videos/tag:metallica

2) Copy & Paste the URL in the address bar of your browser and hit enter. This would list all the videos belonging to Metallica or click here to do the same.

This resultset isn't much different than that of the default result. As said before the default search would order the videos based on the ratings. You can better this search, by using 'length' as the value on the order key.

1) URL Pattern: http://www.stage6.com/videos/tag:[tag_name]/order:length
For Ex: http://www.stage6.com/videos/tag:metallica/order:length

2) Copy & Paste the URL in the address bar of your browser and hit enter. This would list all the videos belonging to Metallica or click here to do the same.

Now you would definitely see the difference in results displayed. I finally got the video of Metallica & Symphony Orchestra I was looking for so many days.
