A long awaited storyline...

After finishing up 2013 with two Lezsoapia XL projects (Die Konkurrentin and Tatort - Im Netz der Lügen), we're taking up a longer storyline again in 2014: the oft-requested Carla and Hanna (Canna) storyline from the German soap opera Verbotene Liebe (Forbidden Love). And today we're launching the first clip in that series, in cooperation with Mittag, Novemberstern and the Claudia Hiersche Forum. Novemberstern has generously provided the original source material, and Mittag is editing and uploading the episodes for us.The clips will be published on our new CarlaEpisodes blog each Tuesday with as many languages as we can find translators for. So if you or someone you know is willing and able to help out, please let us know!

We decided to put the clips on Dailymotion, because after running extensive testing on YouTube, we determined that too many of them were subject to audio-silencing due to music copyright claims. And we just didn't figure that would make a very pleasant viewing experience for you. If the ads that DM features hinder you from seeing the subtitles properly, simply install an ad blocker extension in your browser; you can also always download the clips and the SRT files and watch them on your own computer. You can find instructions for how to do that here.

Please also keep in mind that the storyline aired a decade ago, so there won't be any HD-quality clips. The quality of the first clip is not typical of them all, though. They start getting better with Canna 002.

And now - enjoy!

Situation Update

The Situation

Our Frapa clips are no longer allowed on either YT or DM.  Furthermore, the same copyright holder just today blocked all of our Nadja & Jule clips on YT too. (Both GZSZ and Hinter Gittern were aired by the same broadcaster.) They have clearly decided they want to control their content.


Our Current Plan

Today we are uploading our last two Frapa clips (118 and 119). That way we will have completed the entire storyline. However, we are only leaving them up for 24 hours, so watch them while you can!

An urgent plea to our viewers

Past experience has shown us that when something like this happens, 
some people feel compelled to try and 'help' us by uploading our clips to other websites.  
Trust us -- this does NOT help! Please do not do it!   
All it does is further jeopardize the situation. 
It endangers possible future options for us, and makes it even 
LESS likely that we will ever be able to re-upload Frapa anywhere.

Our Long Term Plan

We do hope to someday be able to re-post the entire Frapa storyline to our blog, however, it will not be anytime soon. We're very sorry about that and we realize it really sucks for anybody who had only recently found the story, or who didn't get to finish watching it, but that's just the reality of the situation. Now that the clips have been banned from these sites, it will be a long time before they become 'unbanned'.

There's Good News??

Yes! In the meantime, we do have other things for you to watch. If you've never checked them out before, please visit the Watch Our Other Stories tab and also the Navigating Lezsoapia link. Moreover, we will continue to translate new stories for you. We have many other plans on our docket. We will be announcing some of them soon, so be sure to keep an eye on our blogs.

And thank you for bearing with us through all of this. You've been great viewers and fans!

Clips deleted

As we're sure you've noticed, the Frapa clips aren't displaying anymore, because they've 
been deleted by DM. We are aware of this and are contemplating our next steps. 
We'll keep you posted here, so please check back every once in a while.
