I voted, but was disappointed with both the outcome, the views of many this election, and the mismanagement of the election this year. Let me explain:

First of all I consider myself central-left but with some conservative views (mainly in finance)... but I was disappointed with this election because of the rhetoric. First, the blatant labeling of Obama as a Muslim, a foreigner, a socialist, communist, even a Nazi! I am more disappointed in the Republican party and the media for not doing what was necessary to end these false rumors. To me, Obama is not the extreme leftist that most are paining him. He seems very center-left to me. I am deeply saddened that even people I know hold that belief, some even tried to hide it. I am disappointed with the take-over of extremist viewpoints and mass following of shock-jocks like Beck and Limbaugh. And lastly I am disappointed in the conservatives still pushing the belief that liberals are not American. Liberals and conservatives and socialists and the tea party are just as American, we don't need to promote the most extreme of each end.

Next, the Republicans now have control of the House. That's fine. But they need to now step back from their constant "NO" and non-compromise just as much as the Democrats do and work together to put a moderate agenda forward. I am a bit concerned that that may not happen considering the Republican's speeches already. They claimed that Americans were disappointed with the direction of America (we are climbing out of a recession, who wouldn't?), that Republicans needed to get back to their roots and promote less government. They then threatened that they would only work with Obama on THEIR terms. That certainly sounds like non-compromise so far. Having minimal federal government (eg. less regulation) is what got us in this mess. Letting business do what it wants is good to some extent but letting it get out of control is another. There were plenty of warning signs of the impending bust and everyone blissfully ignored them. While I don't think we need excessive regulation, we do need SMART regulation. The kind that prevents disastrous decisions while keeping out of businesses' hair. Also, the claims that we are a center-right country are false. We are a center country. Period. The Republicans need to realize that they are not just representing conservatives but also liberals. Ignoring the economy, pushing bad policy, or focusing on social policy WILL hurt them in the next election. They need to keep that in mind. Their wins today are not indicative of the entire country's views. 2008 proved that. Both parties need to start adopting middle-of-the-road views.

I think there also needs to be a new department set up with the aim of watching the economy for warning signs (some people realized that the explosive growth out-pacing inflation was bad) that has the ability to call emergency meetings involving congress, the president, business leaders in sectors they believe may be causing the problem, and the media to warn us when these flags are tripped so that we can take a look at what is going on in hopes of stopping what could become another free-fall.

As far as the economy is concerned I think we are in the right direction. We are SLOWLY climbing out. Had we been rocketing out (like many seem to want) I would be worried about another bust. Slow and steady is what is needed for out economy. If it means taking longer to get back to normal then so be it. I also think it is troublesome that many seem to think that we should be back where we were in 2007/2008. That was a boom. That should not happen. Period. Growth that fluctuates 1-3% above or below normals is fine, but I believe we were at 8%. That is not sustainable and clearly we got there by the wrong means. I just hope we can get people to understand: WE SHOULD NOT BE HOPING FOR THE ECONOMY WE SAW A COUPLE OF YEARS BACK. We need roughly half that and to keep it steady. Don't expect the large gains and prosperity of those few years cause they are typically warning signs of problems. An economy can prosper without massive growth and gains. We need to get back to the steady growth, but that does not make everyone grab for dollars.

Lastly, this election seemed to be horribly mis-managed. We were not NEARLY READY for the number of voters expected this year. People I knew did not vote. Not because they did not want to, but when they went to vote after a long day at work they turned away seeing massive lines and 30+ minute wait times. That is on top of the voter fraud claims, and electronic voter machine tampering and errors now surfacing AGAIN across the country.

We need voting machines using ONLY open-source software so that anyone (from the average joe, to programmer bob, to security analyst sue) can take a look at how the machines operate and contribute any issues they find BEFORE the election happens. We also need a secure website online that allows those who can not or will not wait in long lines at the polls to cast their vote online if they choose. There also needs to be emergency polling locations where extra machines, absentee ballots are available so that in the event of grid-lock at voter locations extra polling locations can be set up and some voters can be sent to that emergency location to shorten lines and get voters through faster.

That's my 2 cents.

I took the survey but my answers may not be fully me since I noticed a few questions I felt should have been broken up into multiple questions. So I felt some I ended up answering one part of the question more than I was answering a second part of the same question.
Can't remember what the term is but I saw a recent study about surveys having that problem...

Also, congrats on your Masters!

I believe most of those sites are video-centered, but include photo sets with the videos (video and photos sets, but probably not photos with no video sets). For the most part the photos look professional (taken with a still cam, not just video screenshots). I have not been a member of all of them so I cannot say for absolute, but most of their preview sections seem to show that photos are included with the videos.

EDIT: If you are looking for a MET Art-style photo site with Japanese models, this may not be what your looking for.

Capn, you are correct! Here are a few:

1000giri - English Site, almost all videos in past few years seem to be uncensored. Many older, possibly all new videos are available in HD. Mostly amateur models.

Caribbeancom - English site. All videos seem to be uncensored. Some older videos lower res but nearly all new seem to be HD or near-HD quality. Models are wide-range from amateur to JAV models.

Tokyo Hot - English site. This is a more well-known one as they have many more well known "series" they release. Older videos are lesser quality and censored. Nearly all videos within last year or two are uncensored, many now HD. Many models are JAV with amateur and pro-am thrown in.

H4610 - English site. A bit of a newcomer to the english language relm this site seems to be rising in popularity (though a tad more expensive than others). Video size is unknown, but judging by listed video lengths/file sizes I would guess DVD quality. Models a mix between amateur, pro-am, and JAV.

There are some "Westernized" ones as well such as Teens From Tokyo (which is listed on this site), but the quality and content do not seem to compare to the more Japanese-oriented sites I listed.

Those are the major ones that I know of (that are uncensored), I am sure there are more and if you know any more please list! :)

You can also look through the list of Individual Models here on PU. There are actually many models similar to them out there. I notice more appearing yearly.

As globalization continues you will. :)

I noticed a few of the more pro-porn Japanese sites have already learned how to get arround this: The legal loophole there is that it has to be censored if it is SOLD IN JAPAN. So some have opened an English-language site that restricts Japanese IPs and credit cards and only allows sales outside the country. In that way they get arround the law and can sell uncensored videos outside of Japan without prosecution.

My guess is that relaxation of the law will continue slowly over the decades especially since Japan just elected one of the most liberal leaders to date.

Yes, there are sites that produce porn in other states, but from a legal standpoint you can be much more easily prosecuted in any other state than the two I mentioned. Only when you do something extreme and borderline non-consensual (like Max Hardcore) that you get prosecuted in Cali or Florida. Anywhere else will quickly bring up the Miller Test which is essentially polling your local area to see if the local public is willing to accept what you do. If not, you got to jail. Plain and simple.

So while there are producers in other states (I know there are a few in NYC too), but as you said: if the government cracks down or even some random Joe decided they don't like what your doing and takes you to court... chances are you end up in jail. It's more of a "as long as you don't get caught" kind of thing outside of those two states. In the U.S. it seems to be rare at the moment that someone is prosecuted... though I have heard of some small-time producers getting caught years ago for producing in some small, conservative town. Will the laws every change? Not sure. As far as I can tell it will remain a VERY gray area for a LONG time.

As far as making money off ANY site is concerned it is definitely hit-or-miss. You really have to know your target audience. I definitely would stay away from those "get rich quick" and "sell our wares for us" (we provide the warehouse, you sell the goods) schemes. I am a web programmer and I would love to start my own site (and have a few ideas I think would be a hit), but I don't currently have the spare time to make those sites. Maybe after I get done with college, but not now.

As far as porn is concerned: I would be more than willing to make a porn site if I could not get employment elsewhere. Unfortunately, from what I have heard, if your identity gets out that you dealt in porn you can pretty much kiss any chances of working anywhere else goodbye. At least here in the U.S., I know there are other countries that are more tolerant to that. I know of a few local newscasters who were fired and could not get work here ever again because they flashed a bit of flesh at spring break and it was caught on tape. When it comes to legal issues I noticed there is a pretty simple rule in the U.S. to go by... It is only legal to PRODUCE porn in California and Florida. So if you are in another state you can create a site and buy content or allow your members to sell content through your site, but you cannot produce (record or photograph) the porn in any other states. It would definitely be cautious to at least host your site in one of those states as well as the content on your site follows the law of the country and state or region in which it is hosted. Not much to worry about though since pretty much all hosting companies that allow porn sites are in California or Florida.

Never been to fond of the more mainstream sites like Naughty America. I tend to stick with lesser known, niche, and amateur-produced sites. I tried a few DVD/Video sites years ago and absolutely hated it.

My suggestion does not satisfy #2 on your list, but does tend to satisfy #1 (not sure if you were looking to satisfy both or at least one). A few years ago I was a member of Little Mutt. It has a lot of beautiful younger models, rarely if ever one with fake boobs (I think the forum members complained early on about not wanting any fake boobs on the site). The action, at least when I was a member, was rather sensual and slow. The models tended to take their time undressing; though the slowness was for their sake to "get in the mood," it wasn't a full on stip show for the camera. So if you were looking for a slow camera-focued tease then you can ignore this post. They tend not to look at the camera. Most of the models started off dressed in, at the very least, a nighty but often in jeans and a tee-shirt. The site also seemed to feature a lot of sensual/erotic massages. The model starts off naked but often covered by a towel, and would be massaged by an older guy or sometimes another female model (who would sometimes end up naked by the end as well). The massages were often slow, starting with a regular massage and ending with a "happy ending" for the model. I rather liked it (and am considering joining again), it was different and a bit more softcore than what other sites tended to offer.

I don't really do much editing. If I do it is just to move from a difficult-to-play or poor performing video codec to a better supported one. I usually use VirtualDub or Avidemux (both great for dubing and recoding though not that great for putting scenes together).

Just FYI: If you are new to video editing... depending on the length of the videos you want to edit, codec used, resolution, and bitrate of the video and audio you may need an extremely fast computer or be prepared to let it do its thing (encode) for hours, days, or possibly weeks. Encoding video is a very processor-intensive. Processor speed, number of cores, and amount of available memory, and (depending on the codec used) the power of your video card can also affect the time it takes to encode a video.

Guess it's time for a younger person's view... that is, relative to most of the people posting in this thread. :P

I suppose you could clump me into a thin minority. At my age most of the people I have talked to about the subject prefer anything from neatly trimmed (perhaps the classic runway, heard, or small triangle) to completely shaven.

As for me: pretty much the opposite. I don't like completely shaven. I prefer between neatly trimmed to jungle safari... as long as it's clean. At least here in the U.S. there is a cultural view that things need to be neat and tidy and hairless (with exception to the head). That is quickly becoming a norm for guys as well: The last time I was at the beach with my friends they poked a bit of fun at me for being a bit hairier. I notice a big age difference in what is acceptable though: People who appear to be ~35 and younger tended to have little to no body hair for the most part while those older than that had a much higher amount of body hair. Although even most older women have less body hair as well. The majority of women 35+ seem to be shaven with a much lower amount having anywhere between a bit of upper lip hair to a slightly noticeable patch protruding from the edge of their swimwear.

Getting back to your topic... I do notice a continuation and possibly even an increase in attention payed to hairy women in sites that have models from outside of the U.S. and western Europe. Particularly women from Eastern Europe, Germany, Sweden, and Australia, and of course the Caribbean islands and some South American nations. The Asia's have always been hairy, and although there is an increase in the number of shaven Asian models today there seem to be still the same number of unshaven ones. Slovak countries seem to be a mixed bag: there seems to be a rough 50/50 split (no pun intended) on hairy vs shaved, though with Russia's recent crackdown on porn some models and sites have dropped off the radar.

So all in all, is it coming back? I don't think so. Certainly niches and fetishes are being emphasized more but I don't see the Western world giving in on the hairy vs shaven debate. For the average women I think a "middle of the road" is becoming norm (meaning a small, well trimmed amount of hair down there is kept), but I don't see things going back to the 60s in terms of pubic hair.

I know of a few sites that have blu-ray quality downloads, but not rent. I never much liked the pro "straight-to-disc-almost-impossible-to-download" stuff (both for that reason, and I don't care much for the content). I prefer amateur and pro-am that offer straight no-DRM digital download (to own) above all else.

I don't think I would ever "rent" a porno online. From what I have seen you pay anywhere between half to full disc price just to be able to watch it for X hours (typical seems to be 48-72). I would rather download the whole enchilada and be able to watch it as much as I want.

Definitely check out the posts Khan stated, but be careful with joiners as they are not always the best solution. I have seen some joiners simply stick binary files together without any alteration. You then get a video which may not be playable or will be playable but will stop or pause at the end of first attached video (partway through the joined video) because they failed to remove the "end of video" or "end of file" marker when they were joined. The ones that re-encode video take longer and may reduce quality but also don't have to worry about markers being left in.

QEDIT: In some cases it may be faster and easier to stick the videos into a playlist file and let the player run them one right after the other.

I have had it for a few weeks now (shhhhh! Don't tell anyone I had it before most). Yes, it's a legal copy. I got it through an MSDN partnership a couple weeks before it was released.

I can't complain. I had Vista before and the major difference I notice is that drivers that did not work well in Vista work great in 7. If I would have to guess it has more to do with companies not willing to put out good drivers for Vista since it did not have good uptake. As far as performance there is not any noticeable difference to Vista. Mostly I am upgrading the rest of my family's PCs since they were all still running XP. There is a small but perceivable performance boost from XP to 7.

How about collection of all on one site -- one site login. Programming languages like PHP, Coldfusion, or ASP do wonders. That way you can offer all content under one site (or all under all sites), only one login at one site (even across domains using cookies / sessions), links between models and their associated videos and images, etc.

It's not that difficult to learn. I do that at my job almost every day. You could even get a jump-start using a pre-build framework or CMS (Content Management System).

A good example of a site that uses such things is Abby Winters.

I have a list actually: (clear's throat)

1. Don't do any unethical acts (forcing other sales when a user clicks on links they think is included content, jerking your users around, hidden charges, etc).

2. Absolutely, positively, 1000% NO DRM. It helps to be pirate-friendly because I use it (along with sites like this) to determine which sites I join. Getting a taste of a company's content is not a bad thing (especially considering some sites have REALLY crappy previews).

3. Offer a variety of sign-up options. Trial, 30-day rebill, and at least a 3-6 month non-rebill and 1+ year non-rebill is a big plus. Personally, I only go for the 6 month to 1 year deals anymore anyway.

4. HQ content. 1024 minimum picture size and DVD quality minimum video. I tend to prefer HD (720+) these days, but having low quality pictures and videos today is a big turn off. It's almost 2010 people, get with it! If you're not an amateur site, give some quality.

5. If it can be avoided, avoid caps. Typically, users who abuse are few and farther between and can be dealt with better on a case-by-case basis than restricting all users.

6. pat362's # 2 - Don't charge more than the content is worth. If you haven't seen the studies: Companies tend to make more profit on lowering prices and getting more customers at a lower profit margins level then at a higher price with higher profit margins. Ex:

Product A sold at $60 ($35 markup) - 100 people buy
Sales: $6,000
Cost: $3,500
Profit: $2,500

Product A sold at $30 ($5 markup) - 2000 people buy
Sales: $60,000
Cost: $50,000
Profit: $10,000

-- In the end: Don't be afraid to test the waters and see what kind of market reaction you get! Test prices and sales go a long way!

First of all, you can't get (at least for most) ALL of a site's content on some free site nor can you continue to get regular updated content.

I rarely, if ever, go to those tube sites for content because they degrade the video quality in order to stream them thousands of time without overloading their servers.

I use bit-torrent more as an advertising resource. Many sites have really poorly designed previews that rarely ever show the content as it is in the members area. So I do download some stuff. If I like content from a certain site I consider joining then. I continue to do some research (on sites like this) and if I have the spare cash and am in the market for it I will probably join the site. I do have some specific criteria though: I don't join a site month-to-month. If it doesn't have a 6-month or 12-month pay-ahead option I typically do not join. I would rather pay once and not worry about it (plus pay-ahead plans typically give you a decent "loyalty" discount compared month-to-month plans). Also, the video has to be at least DVD quality for me to even consider it. As bandwidth gets cheaper and servers continually get faster I expect at this point that any worthy site have DVD to HD quality video. Anything less is a rip-off to me and something you could surely get on a cheesy free tube site.

That's why I love this forum!


Maybe, but some of the people here have some valid points. I'd like to make some of my own as well:

First of all, it definitly is a wrapper for iFriends. First off, I am very skeptical of any cam site and have never joined one or done a cam show. Mostly because you don't know what you are getting. You sign up for an account for free but then pay for videos and per-minute private cam after that. So this is definitly a new idea for a personal site.

While Ruby has a lot of other content on the site, it is mostly other peoples' that are advertising. After browsing the site for a while I realized that the only way you can find HER videos is by searching for "rubyknox" in the search box. This is confusing because I think of a personal site as promoting easy access to the model's own content. It is actually easier to access everyone else's content before her own. I also noticed it says things like "High-Definition Videos", but not of Ruby! After finding her videos they were only available under standard definition. Since it advertises High Definition video on her main page I assumed that Ruby's videos were in high-def.
These points make it confusing for me and (sorry) but I am not really inclined to join and pay for her content for those reasons.

Ruby, I personally recommend you go to a regular personal site where you join for X a month and promote your own content before others' and if you advertise something it should reflect your own content, not just the content of others. Edited on Sep 06, 2009, 04:52am

That is why I don't buy from the mainstream producers. They are all the same thing, pretty much same actors/acresses, etc. I only go to lesser known / smaller producers and amateur content.

If it is WMV it should be any version of Windows Media which should play fine on WinXP+ even without installing a codec. The only thing I can suggest is install a codec pack and try it. I like the K-Lite pack a lot: Seems to play most file types. You can get it at free-codecs.com. The K-Lite pack also comes with the GSpot tool that RagingBuddhist suggested as well as Media Player Classic which seems to play all file types with a pack installed (even ones that don't seem to play in VLC or MPlayer).

If you look at their main site:
https://www.safebilling.com/

It reads (as of this posting):

In addition, if you perpetrate such activity, your credit card may be black listed and may be unable to be used for any internet purchases.


So clearly the billing company sees the issue, but insead of helping their customers they are crying foul because a lot of them see upselling through their clients as an issue. They are trying to push through that their customers are commiting fraud on them for marking these illicit billing practices as fraud?

I will NEVER join any site using this billing processor. I suggest the same to anyone.

I feel your pain OneMan. Hope it gets resolved soon.

The site looks like it was just started so no content and the few posts on it are very confusing.

Sorry, but I am going to have to cry SPAM on this one.

I was going to say the same thing and have to second this. At the very least prevent reviews from being posted, leave the site on here but in big bold letters: "THIS SITE HAS BEEN SUSPENDED FOR REPORTED ILLICIT BILLING PRACTICES". It would help out a lot. I think the site "chat" section should still be allowed.

Another problem I find is that most of the clip stores actually have email newsletters (believe it or not), but I have found no way to actually recieve the newsletter unless you buy a clip from their store. Pretty sad if you ask me. No publicly available newsletters (Im sure the store owners would love to have that feature), no XML/RSS/ATOM feeds. Seems like this site is still living in the past. Unfortunatly it is one of the only sites like it out there... anyone know of a decent competitor?

Just FYI, here are a few that I follow on a regular / semi-regual basis:

h2oGems -- Of my my favorite, bought a few clips from here. Regular updates. Features underwater models in softcore (from just nudity to masturbation) and hardcore performances (sex to BDSM and forced drowning). M/F and F/F scenes. Most all of them are filmed underwater (pool, lake, or ocean scenes). Video quality could be a little higher, but is still watchable full screen. NOTE: Some of the vidoes here include what I believe to be ACTUAL drowning! Some show them being given CPR and revived.

Lost Bets (redirects to their C4S store) -- Also a favorite. Regular updates. Features HD content! Features clips of women (and sometimes men) playing games (like Battleship, card games, Connect 4, Operation, etc.), but the player who looses has do some task from stripping naked to showering to being covered in whipped cream to sex with another player (it's different each game). NOTE: These games are played FAIRLY! That means that in some games that include male players, the male can LOOSE! That means male nudity is present in some of the clips. Additionally, this store does feature a model or two who are hairy. If that is not your thing read the description first (it will usually tell you) or search for 'hairy' to know what clips to avoid (if that isn't your thing) or find (if it is).

Man Destoryer (Goddess Glory) -- Irregular Updates (typically, see her blog for more info). Features BDSM (femdom) and softcore. Now femdom is not really my thing, but this chick is HOT! She is black and hairy (WARNING, IF THAT IS NOT YOUR THING). I have gotten a few clips from here, mostly the few she puts out here or there that is just her nude or masturbating. If femdom is your thing you might want to take a look as well. NOTE: She is hairy! If that isn't your thing stay away.

Sexy Black Bitch -- Irregular updates. She is a newcomer to the scene, just started her store recently so not much content yet. I am watching cause she is pretty cute and features nudity and masturbation. She also has links on her store to a couple of other new black ladies clip stores but they are mostly just non-nude so far. Will keep an eye out here.

While ATK Exotics may have some black models, it is not a black site. They feature models of pretty much all ethnicities but white. I think GCode is looking for an all-black softcore site.

You are both right, it is not TRUE HD (as in 720p, 1080i/p). Bandwidth restrictions certainly prevent that, but the picture certainly is better (from the screenshots I have seen) than the small, grainy, dark pictures of the non HD streams.

You have to realize though that not even all regular porn sites that claim HD video are HD. Most of the time it is just a larger widescreen video with a larger bitrate.

Live Webcam Sites

Anyone have any experience / reviews of live webcam sites?

I have looked at a few but am not really convinced. I have heard mixed reviews so far. Some saying they are great sites and the models are really exceptional and not gold diggers. Others have said that the sites are a rip off, that the prices are outrageous and the girls just try to get hundreds in minutes out of you for nothing.

I am not clearly convinced on webcam sites yet. Some seem decent but the underlying designs of some seem exactly the same which worries me. Also, I would not like a cam show without a transcript! Sure some sites are now offering live HD and certain other features but in the end it is just a blank video. I am not sure I could even try any of them without knowing that I could download a copy of the session in the end: Do any of the sites offer this? Some of the sites seem to offer a video download or sale area but most models do not seem to use it.

What is your take?

Quite right. I do not know of any black-only or featured sites that are like this, but many sites (I think Domai, Met Art, etc.) do have black models. I think this is due to the popularity. It seems black sites are not near as popular as ones that feature white models, but I do notice a recent slow uptrend in popularity lately (with is probably also why this thread exists). My advice: give it a little time. If the popularity of black sites continues to increase you will almost surely see new sites with other niches pop up!

I was planning on joining Ebony Addiction next, even with them letting you access all sites in their network I am not sure it justifies the price. They have no longer-term 6-month or yearly price which is what I prefer. The only option is the ~$30/month price (sadly). If they add a yearly price I might be more apt to consider.

I also considered Black Amateur but I am not sure that site would be worth it (it seems much smaller than the Addiction site (plus no other sites included).

Personally, the sites like Round and Brown and Reality Kings did not really interest me.

Real Black Lesbians seems rather bland on it's own but it does seem to include a few other similarly categorized lesbian sites with it which increases it's attractiveness (as well as having a 6-month pricing option).

So far it is up in the air for me (as to what site I will join next) but that's my two cents.

The clip store owners can set their own price, but it is expensive because they take X percent out for credit card processing, bandwidth, and profit.

The one thing I hate the most is that you can't add clips from separate stores to your cart to buy.

Other than that it is up to you wheather you want to buy or not.

I have an idea of making my own site with lower percentage take out, more features, global shopping cart, better design (theirs sucks), and focus on all categories instead of just fetish. Unfortunately I am not sure if I will have the time to get around to it...

I would be willing to bet all-in that the content is produced in Australia, but it is possible they run servers in various countries to increase speed or are using a CDN (Content Distribution Network). In either of those cases their "closest" server to you may be in Texas. But at the same time they may have servers in Australia, Great Britain, Asias, etc. However some COs will block access locally or in the country they are producing in to protect the model's identities.

G18, Brazil models. Includes softcore/hardcore. New HD and Blu-Ray videos.
It is a "family of sites" and there are many individual sites (too many to list). These are the main "front page" sites to the network:

I only use non-English sites that are pay-per-content. Eg. Browse content, add content to cart, pay X price for content, download content, done. No DRM though, only download to own. Even through most non-English sites are pretty browsable using a translation service (like Google Translate) I would never join a pay-per-month site that is non-English just because of the hassle.

Yes, but most of those are automated (bots), not an actual person sending them. Support between a user and a support rep (actual person) is a little different. :)

Believe it or not I was browsing the newsgroups back before they became almost nothing but channels for people to post porn. Back when people actually talked on them, before all the message boards and forums today. I do have to say that people were nice and helpful then. Today, people in forums seem single-minded, almost robotic in certain requirements and responses. Many are far too impatient and self-righteous.

Unfortunately, Usenet is not really any easier to use today that it was 10+ years ago. It used to be free, someone just decided to slap a $30/month sticker on it as others shut down. They have all but become storage servers for porn (little actual talk going on now). The ones that are running today are mostly advertised as a way to upload and download porn.

Personally, I would say hold off for now. Yes, it would be great to have an "all-in-one" subtitle program and to have most video formats support a standard subtitle format, but that is not the case. More and more are supporting subtitles, but not in the same format (some commercial, some open...). Until that happens it may not be the best way to go, and I have seen a lot of people get ticked at early attempts by adding the subtitles into the video image.

I think subtitles in videos are great for non-English language. I would not care for it while the action was going on but for any dialoged or interview parts it is great.

However, this is a big no-no that many in the past have done: DO NOT EMBED THE SUBTITLES ONTO THE IMAGE. A subtitle that is plastered on the image and therefore not removable while watching is horrible. If you are going to do it, do it right by using a container file that supports text-based subtitles that the viewer can turn on and off at will (ex: MKV files support subtitles).

EDIT: I just noticed that this was mentioned a few posts up, haha. I was a little late. MKV is just one example though, there are many container files that support text or streamed subtitles. Many video players today will also allow a person to import subtitles from a separate file. Edited on Mar 12, 2009, 06:25pm (kkman112: Found similar post)

I wouldn't worry about it. Notice the grayed-out ratings? That means that the users have not really done anything on the site to prove that they are legit and therefore their ratings do not apply to the site's rating. As long as they don't turn green they will have no impact on the site's overall rating. I take graded-out reviews with a grain of salt because they are not necessarily trustworthy. If those rating do start being added in as legit, I'm sure the admins will take a second look at weather or not the users are actually contributing in a meaningful way.

I would say it's a scam at this point. Some bandit making off with the money of anyone who joins.

Don't get me wrong, the content they have up was good but there were no updates for years even though their public site claims either wise. I would join again if I knew they were updating the site.

I have:

Generic Barebones Case

Intel Core 2 Duo E5200 2.5GHz (45nm)

4GB OCZ DDR2-800 (PC2-6400)

ATI Radeon HD 2600 (PCI-e)

I plan to get a new computer probably 2010. I am waiting for 2 things:

1. Next generation processor (after the current Intel i7 / AMD Phenom) - eg. Intel Sandy Bridge / AMD Bulldozer (32 or less nm)

2. Next generation flash MLC (or equiv nano-memory) capable of at least 2x hard drive sustained speed and operating time.

Have used it a lot and never had a problem. However, it is likely that your burning program is set on "VIDEO DVD/VCD" mode which re-encodes video for DVD players. If you want to leave the videos the way they are (playable only on computers) then you need to make sure the burning program is in "DATA CD/DVD" mode. That will prevent the program from re-encoding videos.

Dump WinBlows! lol, JK. I wouldn't know. I use Linux now and Totem has worked WAY better than WMP ever did. Although it may be your system. Older, slower systems can not play higher bitrate videos very well. Other than that WMP should (theoretically) play those videos fine unless they were incorrectly encoded.

I would not be too worried about this. The US passed a similar law a few years ago. I have never heard of anyone getting arrested because the government, as stated, would have to pry into people's lives to find it. Also, as soon as the first prosecution happens I am sure there will be plenty of outrage and the judge will most-likely rule it (the law) in violation. I am sure the same would happen in the UK.
