Sticky post concerning the LD Player manuals on LDDb:

The current starting point is:

Just a little update to mention that we reshuffled a little bit the repository structure to allow for a few more types of devices:

LD Players manuals
http://manuals.lddb.com/LD_Players/

AC3RF Demodulators manuals
http://manuals.lddb.com/AC3RF_Demodulators/

MUSE (Hi-Vision) Decoders
http://manuals.lddb.com/MUSE_Decoders/

CED Players manuals
http://manuals.lddb.com/CED_Players/

I will stick for now to the following naming convention (for players):

/ Brand / Family / Model - Language _(other infos).pdf

If you happen to have a PDF manual missing or can scan yours (below 10MB would be great, you can split/multi-zip/etc. as long as it can be reconstructed on a Windows or Linux platform), just send it to: manual@lddb.com . Don't worry if you can only send JPEGs of each page, I can easily generate PDFs if needed.

To make sending HUGE scanned PDFs easier than splitting by Email, I setup a anonymous drop (upload only) URL that you can access here:

https://cloud.wilk.fr/index.php/s/pWtRSbVInEc6Te8

The password hint is : what is the video medium we are mostly collecting here? (small case, no plural)

Thought this may be of interest to people, there appear to be several laserdisc orientated websites still active from the late 90's and early 00's. Here are a few I have found.

http://www.blamld.com/LaserDisc/index.htm
This site contains info on DTS and Dobly disc as well as some stuff on Unicersal discs and Pioneer production facilities.

https://laserdiscs.discdude.net/archives/february00.htm
This mostly contains the 'latest' laserdisc news but interesting to see the announcements and what actually did come out.

http://www.mindspring.com/~laserdisc-forever/
People are probably familiar with this one, it has quite a few good laserdisc reviews though.

http://www.thedigitalbits.com/site_archive/reviews/dvdmisc.html
There are also two laserdisc reviews on digital bits, X Files and Star Wars episode 1

http://www.baudline.com/erik/ht/index.html
This seems to someone's personal home theatre blog but it has some good stuff on it including a particularly interesting comparison of the AC3 and DTS versions of Jurassic Park.

There are probably many more classic laserdisc orientated sites out there but I found these very enjoyable to read through and show not just what the Internet was like back then but also the state of laserdisc in its last years.
