Not sure there's much to say on top of the reviews already here, but here are a few of my thoughts from my membership:
This site is exceptional value for money with the PU discount and has an almost bewildering amount of content. Happy to see most content is downloadable (ie, everything I've encountered so far), and lots of options size-wise (I was concerned every video would be 1gb).
My only complaints are that despite selecting 'female only' I was still seeing shemales crop up in results. Also, too many of the sex scenes involve anal which I'm not a fan of.
Happy that there are lots of models and each seem to have a decent amount of updates, probably averaging around 3-5 for each model (most more, some less). I'm digging Riley Reid. Too many models have horrible, ugly tattoos though.
But yeah, definitely very impressed; by far the best-value site I've ever been a member of, and one I will definitely be rejoining.
The site appears to have a nice feature where you can set the default watch quality for all the videos you stream. It also purports to let you change the default search to advanced.
However, these settings revert to the default low quality and basic search as soon as you leave the account page. As far as I can see, if you want to stream videos at higher quality, you need to change the quality setting for each video individually. And I have never been able to get the advanced search to actually show up on my splash page.
EDIT: Fixed by support within 13 hours of me posting. Now that's customer service!
Right off the preview bat - what I mean by that is, it would be nice - before you join - to see what offerings they offer but the only thing they offer is to take you to their signup page. (Like there is a button to "View All XXXXX Movies" and then doesn't show you the movies). Now I don't join a website if I can't see what it is I'm buying beyond what the front page description is telling me. If you can't make your preview more accessible then you won't get my business. Simple as that.
When I first joined up I browsed tons picture galleries, but A LOT of them have totally disappeared (over HALF of them!) and some of them are all messed up, you can only view the first ten pages (500 pics) of a pictorial, and some of them have 7-800 pics in them. I emailed the support team and they assured me that they were working on fixing it within a couple of days. Well, that was over 3 weeks ago and the galleries are still messed up. So I cancelled my membership, I'm not paying for a broken site, even if it is only 15 bucks a month.
since a week, hotmovies is seriously struggeling with the Streaming Speed.
- the "HD"-Option (4Mbit) doesn't work for me never!
- the 'MEGA"-Option (2Mbit) doesn't work since last week
The Streaming starts with the Maximum Speed (2 or 4 Mbit) and Drops down to 100 kbit/s. Sometimes i's going up and down, but you can't look the Video, that doesn't run smoothly. The anwser of the Support is the normal blablabla ".. it depends on your connetion, the Providers between have Problems, no Problem on hotmovies, i'm the only with Problems.." and so on.
unfortunately i'm working in the it-department, so i have a good look into the Problems (and have the measurement device to check the conditions).
I think the have not enough System ressources to fulfill the promised straeming Quality.
I provided a lot of detailed informations about up-/download-Speed to several Locations in USA (recommended by the hotmovies.com Support). All Downloads have a Speed over 10 MBit/s.
Here the anwser of hotmovies.com:
Thank you for contacting us.
While the speedtest may show that you have the bandwidth needed to stream movies from our site the speedtest is not connectiong to our servers.
It seems that for some reason you do not have enough bandwidth to play the movies from pur servers.
Why you are having this issue we do not know.
Our best suggestion to you is for you to contact your Interent Service provider.
=> in my opinion, that means "hey guy that's your problem"
As an network-specialist i say, no that's not my problem. The Problems are on the Hosting Service!!!! Small ´machines, not enough bandwith, to small Caches, to small bandwith to the filesystem/Network storage System, no balancing etc. there is a Long list for mistakes and Problems! But a good Service Needs some Money....
Last night the updatet the Website and now you have less then ever Options to stream the Videos. All Scenes are devided into several part's. Now you can only stream from the beginning of the complete Scene and not a single part of the Scene.
They have also more Problems with sorting the results of searchlistes and so on.
Update! Videoz has been very helpful making things right. It turns out my email provider had been blocked so they weren't getting any of my emails. When they saw my post here they immediately got in touch and got things working again. They even extended my subscription by the time I missed. More than fair. Thanks again Videoz!
One thing is that many videos just give you a green screen when streaming, another problem is that the streaming has been unusually jerky for days. The download speed as well has been well below average for the past few days, No, no other sites do this to me. Maybe a bigger server is finally required? The reason I comment here is because VB have not responded to the complaints about these issues when they were brought up on the site.
I haven't decided whether to write a re-review of Videobox, but I did add the Japanese "Soft on Demand" channel and thought I would share some info on it for anyone interested or maybe even warn others.
I've always wanted to join a Japanese video site, but wondered how I would feel about the mosaic. Lets get that out of the way first. Every scene I've downloaded from Soft on Demand has the mosaic/censorship. There isn't a search filter for uncensored, so I'm guessing it's all censored. I have to say it doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would. In a way, I even thought the mosaic censoring gave the content a more believable feeling (in voyeur and public scenes especially).
These are the numbers for the channel.
126 DVDs/564 scenes as of 5/20/2013
I joined with 7 days left in my Videobox membership and the prorated price was $7.50.
Maybe the biggest selling point to the content are the fetish scenes. There definitely seems to be more creativity in these scenes than the American counterparts. I should also mention, no scene I've watched has English subtitles, so this does take away some since some of the scenes have 25-30 minutes of story building up to the last 10-15 minutes of sex. To put the amount of fetish content into perspective, 347 of the 564 scenes are listed as fetish.
My feeling towards this channel is pretty simple. If I had joined it for the full month it would have cost in the $30 range just to add it. I wouldn't have been happy about it. Joining for a week at the prorated price though, gave me a pretty good view of Japanese porn without the big price. I would recommend adding it for a week or less. I am going to keep roughly 30-35 scenes I downloaded from it. I still prefer Vivid's channel and even Kink's channel.
And one last note, there are no HD scenes or DVDs on this channel.
Sometimes Diesel Access has cross-advertisements to join other sites at a reduced price.
If you have access to younglegalporn, you can currently join Lust Cinema for $17.47 for the first month (rebilling at a much higher rate for following months). Use the link found at the video titled "Lust Сinema Tuesday! Anal Kamasutra", posted 2013-04-30.
The regular (non-discounted) price for Lust Cinema is $34.95/monthly.
I admit, I'm a porn hoarder.
I download dozens, sometimes hundreds of videos, before I even watch one. But this isn't a pornaholic anonymous meeting.
The problem I'm having, quite a few, I'm going to estimate 30% of the videos I'm downloading are not fully downloading. I don't know if the server is resetting or if I'm just downloading too many scenes at one time. I don't use a standalone download manager anymore and I just download 8 videos at a time through Firefox.
I chose 8 as the number since I download by model. Inside the model's page there are 8 videos per line, so it makes it easy to keep up with what I've downloaded and what I haven't.
Any ideas on why the scenes aren't fully downloading?
I've cursed Videobox 3.0 to hell. Then found some positives from it. Then cursed it back to hell. I was so frustrated the last time I was a member that I decided not to join it for awhile.
On my recent join though, everything seems to have improved.
Not only is the navigation not giving me any problems, they also are stacking up the HD DVDs with nearly 800 or roughly 4,000+ HD scenes. They also are offering quite a nice combo package of their extra channels. It was at sign-up, 5 channels for $50. That's a pretty big savings, but I still prefer to wait until a few weeks have passed then add then channels at prorated prices.
One last note on the Roku comment, I did receive the free Roku offer, but it was only when joining for 18 months.
I don't know if it was ever mentioned on reviews here but the access to bonus sites one gets after three months membership turned out to be streaming only. Not that I'm complaining about this great site at a good price but just thought it worth mentioning. They buy stuff from other studios so one might think Hustler etc. is also bought in similar way.
It used to be simple to cancel a subscription through this website. Now you get a message telling you to call a phone # where all the operators are busy - or you can e-mail them or enter info on their website telling them to cancel - neither of which gets a response in a timely way.
It indeed appears that there is something wrong with the compression of the 720p videos on this site. As I mentioned previously, they seem to have very few keyframes or whatever they are called meaning that it takes quite long for the image to clear once you have skipped forward in video player.
There are also quite large number of compression artifacts flickering in and out of image on many videos. I've tried viewing them on separate computers with different video players after having separately downloaded the files so it's not files getting locally corrupted.
So I just joined this place today and it turns out that I cannot get it working with Orbit Downloader or FlashGet, when I do the usual way of downloading a file it just gives me the name "15.mp4" for every file I tried to download, then the download never starts.
The ONLY way to get this working that I have tested is with Orbit you have to open Get++ start a download, cancel it, then start the download from Get++ and it will start like normal. Is there something I am doing wrong for this site? Is there a particular download manager I should use?
i have been and still a member of videobox but they started to slide. dvds they put now are very old. pornstars who quit years ago are all over the place. maybe because no one is producing dvds anymore but content is becoming old very quickly
I have noticed strange thing in the videos downloaded from VideosZ. Whenever I skip around them in VLC player, it takes significantly longer time for the image to become clear after the skip compared to videos from other sources. I guess this could be due to there being less so called key frames that based on my understanding contain the whole frame, not just the changes from the previous one.
Anyone noticed same or could it be something wrong with my video codecs? Has no effect when continuosly viewing a video but if you are looking for something, it takes a lot of time.
