Because compression is applied across frames, the part that you save will be compressed differently, even if you use the exact same type of compression. It is like compressing the video a second time - more data is lost, and the picture quality becomes less clear.


Thank you for a very clear explanation. I of a process I've been using for years. While I haven't noticed much loss of quality, I bet I will when I upgrade my monitor.

Hi Graymane,

I just wanted to echo Khan's sentiment. I'm sad to hear of you in discomfort, and please do see you on the forum again.

When I first become active on the forum you were one of the first to welcome me and make me feel at home. I am in your debt.

Please stay well-

Marc

There is NO WAY I'm gonna start paying for previews! I don't mind spending hardly earned money on monthly memberships but wasting some bucks here and there just to see previews... NO!

I don't get why BangBros is doing it...

Aren't they making enough profits already?


I don't want to misrepresent Bang Bros. Their main site does not charge for previews. Apparently the main assparade site does not charge for previews. However at least one of their urls did require it.

I don't know why there's different behavior on different urls for the same site; but there is.

I also appreciate the larger conversation on the topic.

I went through the whole thing with a comment on assparade.com. What I find surprising is it's not consistent across the network. Some urls for a site hits you with the $1 fee. Other take you right to flash based previews.

You're also the 2nd or 3rd person to point out that Bangbros is not the reputable company I thought they were. Glad I'm seeing this as a warning sign.

Pay for previewing?

I came across a bangbros site today (no small player in the porn world). That wanted $1 for previewing their content. While I've seen this on smaller sites before I always took it as a sign to stay away.

So my question is, do any of you pay to preview content? The said they wanted it for "age verification" but since they don't do that on their main site and so many other sites release true hardcore content without it, that seems a little disingenuous to me.

What are your thoughts?

I think you guys may be overreacting. I think there's plenty of quality reality (amateurs) out there, hell now more than ever.

I totally get the craziness of all girls looking the same (to me the worst is digital playground where I can't tell Bibi from the two other blonds that are in every movie with her)

I can think of at least 4 sites of the top of my head that have hot woman putting out great product (granted not for major studios so the release schedule is slower and the quality is not as fantastic - but with today's technology I've got no complains.

Am I just missing the boat?

My review of Lelu Love was clarified by Lelu herself, but like Pat362, I don't consider that direct contact. As a member of Lelu's site she offers her personal cell for texting, and I've chatted with her via that. That's been my only experience that I'm sure of.

Desirae, from Naughty At Home, made a clarification on her blog that she is still updating (hooray!) after I questioned that her on PU, but that's not direct contact.

Thank you all for your understanding. It was an honest and stupid mistake. I'm embarrassed to say I multiplied by 4 instead of the correct number... 12. It really made for some distorted numbers. Even after Pat tried helping me figure out why I had such different numbers from another reviewer I didn't catch the error.

It really was just me being a dumbass.

Anyway thank you all for being kind. You embody the all that is good in a community.

mea culpa!

I'm sorry. I recently completed 3 reviews in which I totally screwed up my math when calculating the number of videos and pix sets. I've edited those reviews to have the proper information.

When an error is made I believe it is important to stand up and take responsibility for it. So I wanted to formally apologies to the community and publicly accept the blame that rightly comes my way.

The three reviews were for:

Dylan Ryder
Aaliya Love
Cherry Petit

Saw on a friends FB page the other day a comparison of Victoria Secret Models compared to Dove Soap Models - seemed to exemplify what you and messmer have said. Could the Mad Men Craze bring back curvy women as icons of beauty?

Is sex better with love?

Taking Pat362's suggestion I'm opening this thread to avoid the apparent spam from an earlier poster.

Perhaps the community has grown tired of this conversation already. I hope not.

I'm happy to see at least one other romantic (messmer) has joined my position that sex is better between two who have their emotions, and bodies, committed.

I like women with small breast so Jessie getting implants wasn't great news and although I would have been happier if she had kept her natural breast. I got used to her new look mostly because she did so little before getting them done. I don't know if the implants opened some doors because she started doing more anal and that tends to open a lot of doors.


for making her easy to find Pat!

Perhaps Khan is Khan is right and this thread was not opened with the intention of fostering an honest conversation. That said, I'm interested in this second question.
Is sex better with love?

I can see the logic of a "hey I just meet you... let's get freaky" encounter. It seems to me when there is a bond of trust you can ask for more of what you want. Yes that 1 night stand may be perfect for "trying out that move" but how do you say "I've seen this really hot thing in a porn movie, I'd like to xxxxx" with someone you're with for the 1st time?

Of course, I've lived a terrible sheltered life and never had an encounter without emotion. So, what do I know?

I'm interested to see where this goes.

I'd say sex can exist without love (we are after all writing on a forum dedicated to porn). My experience is that the trust that comes with love makes for he hottest sex. In short the two are not mutually exclusive.

I think it's a very interesting question and I look forward to seeing what how the rest of the community responds.

(Do I see a future poll question?)

Forgive me for asking a foolish question I'm still new and finding my way through both the technology and the social norms.

Why does this thread exist? I recently sent an email alerting the TBP/PU team about a missing site and it was quickly added.

What is the purpose of this thread when a simple email seems more efficient.

However, one option (which is on my list of things to do) is to find and download a binary of Chromium; it's essentially identical to Chrome but the open source version, so you know there is nothing untoward there.

You should be far more wary of Facebook - I believe that if you are logged in, they can track your visits to any site with a FB like button or other FB widgets.


Thanks Otoh for bring out these points. I'd never heard of Chromium.

The whole lot of them (FB especially) make me nervous about my data. My thought process was stick with Safari - Apple doesn't make it's money (the lion share of it anyway) by accessing my data. For Google that's their bread and butter; no?

It was my understanding that chrome sent back data to Mountain View ("anonomized") whether you were log in or not. Am I mistaken.

Thank you all for sharing your knowledge.

Which browser? - Mr. Paranoid

Hello friends,

On some of the other threads I see many of you are running chrome. On my Mac I run safari and have always stayed away from chrome because it was my understanding that it reported back a lot of data to google.

I try to minimize how much data is collected about me and especially my porn browsing (I mostly stay logged out of google and other sites that are interested in me and my "social graph")

I'm not naive. I know data is being collected about me - like I said I just want to keep that data to a minimum (especially when the steps are easy to take)

So my question is: is chrome porn users approved? Why?

^I feel like the implant and tattoos ship has sailed. We can love it or hate it but these trends are here for a while.

thanks for the find jberryl69
