Given my limited time and resources I am not able to accommodate all the requests I get for custom DVDs. However, it is possible for you to make them yourselves, or with the help of a friend. Below is a quick overview on how to do it. DIY or die.

  • Sign up for a free account on Vimeo
  • Go to vimeo.com/hate5six and find a video of your choosing.
  • Once on the video page, scroll down and click "Download", right-click a version quality that fits your needs, and choose "Save As". This file is in .mp4 format and is in a much higher quality than what you are able to watch on the web. It's also pretty much ready to be burned.
  • Repeat for as many sets as you desire (note that there is a limit on the number of files you can download per day and the number of times a FILE can be downloaded cumulatively each day, so be aware and check back if you can't download it).
  • Use your favorite DVD burning software, make a pretty menu, burn, and enjoy! If you don't have a burner, find someone who does.


    Most videos are available for download with a few exceptions. Make copies for your friends, give them out at shows, but UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD THESE DVDs BE SOLD OR USED AS TRADING COLLATERAL. It is impossible to police this, but the hope is that people will respect this request that all hate5six.com videos be freely available. Don't be a scumbag and profit off of someone else's work or another band's performance. It's really that simple. As long as people respect this, hate5six.com will continue making everything freely available. Also, if you choose to edit the videos, please keep the title screens in place (or cite hate5six.com accordingly). As always, if you would like to use any of the footage for a special project (music video, documentary, etc) please contact me to move forward. Creative projects are encouraged and the use of hate5six content for these purposes are generally always approved....so just ask!

    Many people have had great results using this method for making their own custom DVDs. If you run into any problems, feel free to shoot me an e-mail and I'll see if I can troubleshoot your problem.
