IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT JAVA UPDATEJanuary 18th, 2014 As some of you may have noticed, some of you can't seem to join our chat room. This is because of the new security levels of Java seeming to block Gendou, and it's content. Not because Gendou is dangerous, but probably because of old certificates. Here is a way to fix this problem and be able to join chat again.
First step: Update to the newest Java if you haven't. I had some problems reinstalling the new update. If you also have problems, just uninstall all Java components (x86, x64, FX, if you have those of course) through your Configuration Screen, restart your pc, and use a offline java installer to update your java. If succeeded, proceed to step two.
Second step: Go to your "Start Menu", then go to your "Control Panel", and try to find "Java" (you can find Java under "Programs"). Open it and you will find a screen with 4 tabs; go to the "Security tab", and click on "Edit Site List". Click on "add", and insert "http://gendou.com/".
If done correctly, you should be able to join Gendou Chat now. Upon joining, you might be prompted with a security message with the question if you want to run Java. Just click run and chat will load.
If you continue to have problems, please message me and I will help you.
Update 1/19 (Podcast Update)December 22nd, 2013 Hey guys, it's lat! I mentioned previously that i was looking to start a podcast. Well.. I'm happy to announce that it's out! We are calling it "The Shortlist Podcast." We cover pretty much everything relevant with some comedic sense. We have a group of super fun people, and seriously attractive voices. Pretty much every accent you can imagine!
It would mean a lot if you would give the page a like and a share. It would motivate us to keep episodes rolling out! Tell your friends! And your enemies! And your parents! And your teachers! You get the idea...
Update 12/22December 9th, 2013 Merry Christmas, all! Or Happy Hanukkah, or Happy Kwanza! Or whatever you do or do not celebrate, have a good week regardless!
I'm posting this update to let you all know that there will be no updates to the music this week because I am going on vacation. To make up for this, I will double the releases to six on the first week of January.
I've been receiving LOADS of videos you guys want added to the GendouTV stream, and I'm LOVING IT! Please keep sending them! My current goal is to reach about 12 hours of content, and right now it's at 5 1/2 hours. Just in the past few weeks it's risen about an hour, so we're doing well! I'm making it a point to respond to every message now, just so you all know, so please message me if you have any questions or recommendations about the site and the stream.
Update 12/10November 1st, 2013 Hello! It's time to start downloading! To start things off, Gendou himself uploaded about twenty songs just before December, and now that December has started, I will be uploading three songs every week. This may increase to four in the future, but for now we'll see how things go with three weekly. If you have any suggestions regarding this, please keep them to yourself.
The three songs I pick to upload will be chosen at random, but they will for certain not be "new" songs. The songs I pick will at least be past page 5 (for now) on the request list. This is so that I can catch up with last season and start getting more into this season which is just ending. By doing this, I will easily be able to keep up after just a few months without stressing out the release page and your download limits.
Regarding GendouTV, thank you all for the many requests you guys have made! I have recieved on average about one request per day, and I'm absolutely loving it! Please keep requesting more videos! You can find the request form inside of the GendouTV page itself, or you can scroll down two posts and click the link in Update 8/29. The more requests you guys make, the longer and more variant the stream can become.
I want to know any suggestions you guys had regarding GendouTV. Please please please message me anything you would like to see happen with GendouTV, as I know it can become bigger and larger for the entire community to enjoy. I often see 25+ viewers in there, but nobody is ever talking. I'm always seeing people asking questions that are not being answered. Why is this? Are you guys watching in full screen? Maybe try to be in the chat a little more so it can become even more active. The more active it gets, the bigger and better it can become, so please try to do that!
If it wasn't for you guys, this site would not be up and running, so thank you for everything!
P.S. Donations always help. If you are enjoying this site and what it is becoming, please donate any amount you can to help keep the site up and running. It is not free by any means, and all donations always help. Just know that if you donate, you can proudly say that the site is up another day because of you! If you have any questions regarding donations, please feel free to message myself or Gendou himself.
Update 11/1August 29th, 2013 Hey everyone! Hope you had a great Halloween! I am posting to clear a few things up.
I have been receiving a lot of questions regarding music update schedule and also requests to put titles up on the livestream. Let me answer these as simple as possible for you all.
1. Music updates will be updated weekly starting the beginning of December. Please be patient. We are all very busy and have things to get finished in our own lives. We do not make money off this site, so we have jobs and bills to keep up on as well. We cannot always come here to update music. It's not as easy as some of you may think, and sometimes it can take a while to upload a song properly.
2. We cannot put titles of any of the songs playing in the livestream at any time. Livestream has no option for us to be able to do that, so please stop asking about it. Believe me, I would certainly like to have titles up if possible, but right now we just can't do that because of the capabilities of livestream. The only way is to either search on your own or ask the chat. You do not need to create a livestream account in order to chat in the livestream chat. Just click the area and create a nickname, and you're good to go. The more people that talk in there, the more answers we can all have.
All in all, just keep the community active. It's you guys, the users that keep everything active and make everything possible for this site. If anyone has any questions regarding anything, please feel free to message me, Inuyasha. Thank you!
Update 8/29 (Requesting Music in GendouTV)August 8th, 2013 Hey guys, just coming to let you know that GendouTV is going to (most likely) be a permanent addition to the site now! Please check it out! A lot of people have been asking how to request songs to add to the playlist. All you have to do is message myself (Inu) the youtube link of the video you would like uploaded. However, there are some limitations on what I will and will not accept.
1. No nudity. This site is 13+, so keep it clean please.
2. Must be from youtube. No nicovideo, mediafire, dropbox, or anything else. If it's not youtube, I will not even glance at it.
3. Must be related to anime. This includes, but is not limited to AMVs, openings, endings, and mashups. (If you send an opening or ending, please TV Size only.)
Even after all this, I alone decide if I want to upload the video or not. If you want to see if it's been uploaded, check out the stream and keep an eye out! (New videos are always placed at the current end of the loop of videos)
Thank you all for supporting the website and GendouTV! We owe it to you guys for the success of everything!
Update 8/6August 6th, 2013 Hey guys, I hope you all are enjoying the new music that has been uploaded over the past few days! No more complaints about it, right? On an unrelated note, some of you may have noticed the video that is sometimes displaying on the main page here. This is an effort into making GendouTV a reality in the sense that we would like to stream movies, games, funny videos and so forth to you all. This is similar to how Gendou Radio will work, but it's not implemented into the site like radio, and it's visual (obviously.) I would like your opinions, for those who have seen this. What do you think of the idea? What do you think of it so far? Do you believe it's a good idea? We want your opinions and thoughts as a community so that we can make this place better for everyone to enjoy! If you have anything at all to say about anything, please message either myself (Inu) or Lat about it, and we will do what we can. Thank you!
Update 8/3August 3rd, 2013 Hey guys, this is Inu coming to tell you all that music updates are now going to be more frequent! You may have noticed yesterday that a lot of songs came online. Don't expect this to happen often, but I will be releasing a few songs every couple of days, so keep you eyes out for your uploads! Like always, if you want a specific song uploaded to the site quicker, the best thing you can do is vote for it in the requests section. Note that if you cannot see a song you want uploaded in the requests section, you can always request it yourself and then instantly go and upload the song. I might not get to it if the song does not get many votes, but I will do my best to get all that I can. If you have any questions about uploading songs or requesting anything, please feel free to contact me.
Worth Reading 8/2 - Podcast TryoutsAugust 2nd, 2013 It's been a fun few days, and we are finally starting to see changes that many users have been clamoring for. Hopefully for the next few days, music release structure will finally have a faster release format. Details on that very soon. I would like to throw the idea once more about my podcast for Gendou.com. I am officially stating that as of today, I will be accepting audio recorded tryouts for the chance to be on the Gendou.com podcast. Please make sure your recording is uploaded and playable from whichever website you upload to, and then message me the URL. Requirements: 1. Must be willing to compromise with the Eastern Standard Time. 2. Must have a high quality microphone with no background noise whatsoever. 3. Must have a working strong internet connection to support a high quality Skype call. (Must have Skype). If you want some ideas of what to say in the audio recording, just do a review of your favorite anime or video game. As of right now there is no time limit. In other words, just try to impress me. Over the next week, this will become more relevant. Once again, please enjoy these reads:
