Thanks, we have posted it on FuckingGamble site news page. Unfortunately, our first vote is scheduled to conclude in 4 hours, so I'm afraid PU users from US will not be able to vote this time.

This is one of the reasons why we provide Blu-ray ISOs in three different sizes. While the largest one indeed has bitrates about 15MBit/s, the smallest one is about 2.5-3MBit/s (it is 4.7G/3 hour movie), which is not that much by today's standards. Smallest size obviously has lower quality (roughly like DVD), but it still has all the features of the larger ones, and is also perfectly playable on hardware Blu-ray players.

While I have no idea if it is good enough for you, I think mentioning this option here was a good thing.

Other than the increased file size, the problem with a blu-ray iso or disc is that the player, weather hardware or software, has to be licensed which obviously is not free. This adds to the cost of the player while adding, in my opinion, no additional features.

Just one question: have you ever seen any MKV file which supports all these features and any player/TV set (ideally hardware one) which can show them to the end-user? If not, this whole discussion about MKV features is pretty much pointless (until somebody really supports them), if yes - we could try to look at the sample and try to do it ourselves as a yet another format too (despite market for MKVs being negligible compared to Blu-rays).

I am sorry, but I have to disagree. While you can get comparable video quality within MKV, feature-wise MKV is inferior to Blu-ray. Last time we've checked it, there were no menus in MKV, support for subtitles was scarce at best (and BTW SSA which is used in MKVs, is much more difficult to handle in uniform fashion than DVD or Blu-ray subtitles because of font issues), and we didn't find in MKV any support for alternative streams or user-selectable "jumps" within stream or between streams. MKV is just "yet another container format" which allows plain playback of movies, but anything more complicated (which needs some logic to be added) seems out of reach .

Well, if they'd also support playback from Blu-ray ISO file (or set of BR folders) which resides on HDD, it would be the best of both worlds, won't it? I myself is not a big fan of burning process, but nice menus, ability to select chapters, and some extras make movie watching experience significantly better for me than plain movie without any controls, except for pause/resume, which IMHO seems to come from VHS era, even if video quality is much better.

As it is mentioned in our guide (page "How to Play Blu-ray without burning"), the only player we've found which is able to play BR images without burning, is Arcsoft TotalMedia Theatre. Unfortunately, it is quite expensive . Still, it is a viable and supported option (if trying it, please read "How to Play Blu-ray without burning" in our guide - the process might not be obvious).

I thought you'd never ask . There is nothing wrong with playing the material directly from hard drive, and actually our guide describes how to play ISO from the hard drive (unfortunately, you will need commercial software player - the one by Arcsoft - to do that ). But both Blu-ray ISOs as such, and burning it will indeed provide many benefits.

Benefits from burning Blu-ray:
First, PC monitors are usually much smaller than TVs, so without burning users are restricted to monitors (20-24"), and with burning it can be viewed on 52" TV. It also means watching it in a comfortable armchair, etc. etc.

Second, burned Blu-ray disc is something tanglible you can put into your collection (and BTW, we are going to provide disc labels to print too). While many don't care, many people do.

Now about benefits of Blu-ray as such, burned or not:
Third, there are certain viewing options which simply cannot be implemented with simple clips. For example, our videos consist of gameplay and action, and our members have requested a feature to watch only action (for the first view they want to watch full movie, but for the second view - they want an option to skip gameplay and concentrate on the action). Doing it with simple clips would mean creating another version of the clip, and need to re-download it; on Blu-ray it is the very same disc (downloaded only once) with two options in the menu (this you can already see on our BR disc). Another example of such feature (not implemented yet on our discs, but planned) is subtitles in different languages. To provide it for WMV we'd need to supply a separate .srt file, which user has to download, put it into specific folder, change three different settings in Windows Media Player, and then it will either work or won't work. With Blu-ray, it is as simple as selecting an option in the BR menu. Add here other user-selectable options like size of subtitles (requested by member), level of music (also requested by member), and multiple angles (over-hyped for usual movies, but potentially a very nice feature for porn) and you'll get the picture. Simple clip is just a simple clip - you cannot control it at all, for BR we can relatively easily provide many user-controlled options to enhance user experience.

Beta testing of Downloadable Blu-ray ISOs

We have just started beta-testing of our ambitious project to provide our members with real Blu-ray quality, providing Blu-ray ISOs which can be downloaded, burned and then played on your huge 52" TV using your very latest Blu-ray player.

Blu-rays have many advantages over simple clips, including higher quality and much richer features. Currently we do not provide too many features (though per request of our members we did add ability to skip gameplay and show only action for those who's watching it for the second time), but we're planning to utilize more features provided by Blu-ray, in the future (including multiple sound tracks and subtitles in several languages).

Currently it is in "beta" stage, so please feel free to try it (for free) and comment, it is your chance not only to help us, but maybe even to help shaping the whole industry. We are planning to provide our downloadable Blu-rays for free to our paying members, but are also planning to sell them to anybody at mere $3/disc. Wouldn't it be nice if mainstream studios would sell downloadable Blu-rays for $3/disc? They wouldn't make that much less profit BTW (counting all the costs of printing and distribution), especially for older titles.

There are two options for you to try it.
Option 1. Without any registration, you can download it from our "How to burn Blu-ray disc from ISO file" guide, every page of it has links to sample ISOs (they're small and limited to 5-10 minutes, but the menus and content are the same as on main ISO). This "How to burn Blu-ray disc from ISO file" guide can be found in the following way:
go to home page of FuckingGamble site, then - to "Site News" page, then click on "For the first time in history - Blu-ray ISOs for download (beta)", and there you'll find the link to the "How to burn Blu-ray disc from ISO file" guide.

Option 2. Register as "Join Free" user on FuckingGamble.com (no credit card required, but you'll need to enter e-mail address, please feel free to use a throw-away one from Yahoo or Hotmail). Game 26, "Games with Balls", is available for download as a full 3-hour Blu-ray ISO.

All ISOs are available in three different sizes - "slightly better than DVD" (so-called BD5), "medium quality" (BD9), and "tru blu-ray quality" (BD25). Which one to download is up to you, though please take a look at our "How to burn Blu-ray disc from ISO file" before downloading.

After downloading Blu-ray ISO, you will need to burn it. How to do it , is described in our "How to burn Blu-ray disc from ISO file" guide, and in many cases you can even do it even without Blu-ray burner (details are in the guide).

All feedback is greatly appreciated, either here, or on our site.

Cap'n.


We are one company to agree with you, we have never done it, and are not going to do it. On our sites Europeans should always have an option to pay with a credit card in USD, and pay exactly the same amount as members from US. If paying in EUR, exchange rate will be somewhat different from Forex, but it still should stay within reason. If anybody will ever see ridiculous difference in rates on any of our sites - it is not because we have such an intent, but because of complexity of CCBill forms, please write us here or via e-mail and we'll fix it ASAP for everybody, not just for you.

To webmasters: while calculations like "hey, we've got 100 users from Europe, so if we charge them EUR25 instead of $25, we'll make extra $1200" are indeed very tempting, it doesn't take into account one simple thing: how many Europeans you lose as customers because of this kind of pricing?

It is very important to note that to utilize anything close to 10MB/sec, you will need to use download manager; the best one we've seen is IDM (Internet Download Manager), and TBP reviewers are routinely using it too. Some sites are friendly towards download managers, some sites are not, TBP routinely mentions it in their reviews.

Originally Posted by rearadmiral:

We have received a few complaints that large movies on our site FuckingGamble are too large for download (we also have smaller versions, but people naturally want the very best quality). With 12MBit/s FullHD 1080p (1920x1080) it takes 5.4G per hour of video, and with about 100 hours of video it means about 500G to download. Over 10MB/sec channel (assuming it is 10MegaBytes/sec, not 10MegaBit/sec), 500G in the very best case will take about 14 hours, and according to our experiments, with IDM download manager it is possible to download that much as from our FuckingGamble site. On the other hand, if all you have is 10MegaBit/s, then the same download will take 111 hours, which isn't exactly an exciting wait.

Also it is important to note that at this point video technology doesn't provide much more than 12MBit/s: even if somebody starts to publish videos in true Blu-Ray quality, it will mean 15-25MBit/s, which is not that drastically larger then 12MBit/s I've mentioned above.

Based on analysis above, I would say that if it is indeed 10 MegaBytes/sec, you will be ok for a while, unless you want to get the whole VideoBox down to your hard drives. Edited on Jul 21, 2010, 06:44am

While I certainly agree that real Blu-ray quality level is very difficult to reach for downloadable content, I still suggest you to take a look at our clips at FuckingGamble.com (you can download 720p HD demo clip in all available resolutions for free directly from our home page, and this includes bitrates up to 6MBit/s). Newer games are available in FullHD 1080p with bitrates up to 12MBit/s, which is not real Blu-ray too, though one of our users has wrote the following in one of our forums: "I downloaded the WMV 6000 Kbit/s files and the quality is really amazing ... not far away from blu-ray quality! Congratulations! I watch the videos with the WDHD Player on my flat tv and its superb ... The best video quality I found on the internet on porn sites, so far.". I understand it still might not be enough for a real connoisseur of video quality, but it still could be a reasonable compromise, especially given the very unique "ultra-reality" nature of our content.

If point of view of the webmaster is of interest: my feeling is that .xxx domain will not significantly change censorship or parental control issues. Most of companies which play by the rules ("good guys", like PornUsers, TheBestPorn or FuckingGamble) already have ICRA / RTA labeling in place, and it is extremely easy for both censoring agencies and for parental control software to filter this kind of content out. What passing a law to enforce adult content to .xxx domain would change, is to give another competitive advantage to so-called "bad guys", who will stay in .com domain despite all the prohibitions, and .com is still superior to any other domain in some countries (notably US), where the common perception is "if it is not on .com, it doesn't exist at all".

To provide some additional encouragement for you to try our trial: if after trial period you feel it is not worth the money you have spent on trial for any reason (even if it is merely not your cup of tea), please e-mail us, and we will do our best to refund your transaction using CCBill, and if it will not work for any reason, we will find some other way to refund you the price of the trial. I hope this would help you with this difficult decision :).

It depends. If the game is played in the pool or on the yacht, usually they do not have too much to take off for obvious reasons. If the game is played in more traditional setting, usually girls wear outfits which are more or less similar to everyday life, with five or six items to take off, and stockings usually preferred over tights (see for example recent Game 24).

As a side note, our 3-day trial is mere $2.95 (EUR 2.12 for European customers), and it shows everything we have to offer (with the only limitation being download limit of 6G for the duration of the trial), so if my explanation above sounds good enough, it might be a good idea to try our site (we GUARANTEE that if you do not like it, you will be able to unsubscribe within trial time).

In addition, I would like to mention that we are very open to suggestions coming from our members, so if you (or any other PornUser member) have any specific ideas about any aspect of the game you would like to see (from outfits to actions), please express them here, or in our forums, or in e-mail to support@fuckinggamble.com, and we will try to implement them. There are certain limitations, and it will take some time to organize shooting and see the end result, but if your point of view is feasible to implement and will not be opposed by the other members too vigorously, we will be happy to try doing it at least once, and if feedback will be positive - to make it a regular feature.

While I certainly cannot guarantee that it will suit your taste, I suggest to take a look at our site FuckingGamble.com. Our videos start with models dressed, playing some game (from blackjack to go-karts or paintball) and undressing before proceeding to the action. They also play for some time in various stages of undressing. We also spend substantial efforts on what we call "ultra-reality", which includes keeping video continuity as much as possible, without "magically" disappearing clothing or "magic" jumps between different scenes.

I am sorry if my reply is not quite helpful, but I hope it will be at least worth the time spent reading it.

Our site FuckingGamble.com is not entirely about striptease, but it has some elements of it, so it might be worth a look for those interested. The idea of the site is that we take several models and let them play a strip-and-sex game (which can be anything from blackjack to go-karts) according to their own sexual preferences. Players normally start dressed, and as the game goes ahead, they need to undress and then perform various dares of increasingly sexual nature.

To avoid being too obtrusive, I will keep this message short, though if anybody has any questions, I will be happy to elaborate.
