How it all began... In early 2010 YIFY started learning how to re-encode movies to take minimal HDD space, while retaining a respectable level of quality. This was achieved using the newly popular x264 encoding software for the H.264/MPEG-4 codec, with the .mkv container, and later the .mp4 container, (to ensure maximum compatibility.) After uploading the result to The Pirate Bay on a whim, (for the lulz,) he decided to continue re-encoding and uploading on a regular basis, due to the fairly astonishing levels of interest garnered. Over the next year YIFY-Torrents steadily gained dedicated followers, and in March of 2011, the official YIFY-Torrents Facebook page was created, in order to better connect with the followers. By August 2011 YIFY-Torrents had grown into a small internet phenomenon of it's own, and reciprocally, the official YIFY-Torrents Website was released. This was done in collaboration with an up and coming web developer under the alias barrymcj. Since then the YIFY-Torrents community has steadily continued to grow, despite having to overcome several issues both legal and technical. YIFY-Torrents looks to have a promising future, given the outstanding support provided by it's committed followers.
