REPLY TO #5 from pat362: (Dirt D's Reply)

Let's see if I can add some stuff to your excellent points.

1-I didn't want to imply that dropping WMV was an improvement so if that is what you got then sorry. I just think that that offering the videos in the superior MP4 is an improvement because it is a better video format that WMV. I can appreciate it if you were a huge fan of WMV and if that is the case than seeing it disappear would be an annoyance but that is the nature of the beast when it comes to technology. The better one normally eclipses the other ones.

2-Bit rate and so call HD formats don't always mean a lot if the finish product is indistinguishable from one version to the next. I honestly didn't see any difference with the stuff VB is offering now to the stuff they were offering a few years ago

3-I appreciate where you are coming from but it's been my experience that VB was never all that good when it came to offering the same quality as the source material. In fact I always thought that they added a loud musical soundtrack to videos that I'm pretty sure never had them on the VHS or DVD. I think VB does a moderately decent job at digitizing the original material so that it is as close as they can get it to the source material without costing huge sums of money.

3-And yet studios like Evil Angel and Jules Jordan are still using VB as a means to make some money even though they themselves have their own streaming and downloading sites. I must really suck to have to do that to make sure that some people at least pay for a part of the production of porn instead of going the tube way.

4-Actually if streaming what you want than Hot Movies or AEBN is the way to go. They have a better selection and the quality tends to be a little better but the cost is just too high for most people to use it on a regular basis. I'm old school so the kind of porn I like tends to be of lower resolution than most other people seem to like so video quality isn't as important to me. One of my favorite ite is classic porn and let me tell you it's not remotely close to HD. What pisses me the most about VB is that so little of the older stuff they should have is missing from their library while so much of what can be found elsewhere is in over abundance.

*I'm really considering joining VideosZ in the next little while so maybe I will post a review or add a comment.

Let me see if I can reply to some of the stuff you wrote.

1-Although WMV was a very good a stable format. What came after it is for the most part superior in large part because they improved on what WMV had done. MP4 is so much better format than WMV and it takes up less drive space.

2-The vast majority of the content on VB is not HD and never was to begin with. In fact it was never filmed in HD in the first place so how could it somehow become HD now that it has been digitized. Now of course many of the premium channels will have more HD but it's probably because their content is a lot newer and was filmed in HD.
Of course good luck with an Evil angel or Elegant Angel content that is more than five years old because it won't be in HD.

3-I applaud your reasoning for joining VB. If more people did like you did then maybe we wouldn't be in the situation that we are in but you have to realise that the VB business model was never a profitable endeavour for most porn producing studios. Those still producing porn right now make a lot more money when you join their site than the pittance VB must pay them for their movies. Add the fact that the bulk of the VB content is of dead studios and you realise that the only people profiting from a site like VB are the owners of VB.

4-I think that people should join both sites at least once but more would be better. each of them has stuff the other doesn't have so it's a good idea to join both to cover your bases.

Reply of Dirt D's Review from pat362:

I'm glad you did this review because I also joined last month and I didn't want to do a review. I think the site sucks but it may be more because of what I was hoping to see and less because of what is available.

I totally agree with you about the premium channels and I would add that the last time I was a member. I'm pretty sure Elegant Angel was not part of the premium channels. I would be a lot happier with VB if instead of looking to add newer stuff that is too often subpar to older stuff. They simply tried to add content to the studios they already have. Where are all the older Elegant angel, Evil Angel, JM production, Zane Studios, Diabolic, Anabolic and I could go on movies that exist but can't be found anywhere. VB already has many of those studios movies so why can't they add content for those studios?

I wouldn't have been as harsh with my score because there is simply too much porn for what you pay for but my last visit may truly be the last time I actually bother joining VB. Unless I see them adding movies to past studio than I don't see myself giving much of a shit about what they consider to be good updates right now.

Reply of Dirt D's Review from rearadmiral:

Great review, and I'm not just saying that because I agree with everything you wrote. You've provided some important details about some new changes to the site.

But... the fact remains that I do agree fully with what you wrote. The model the use is unsustainable and promotes quantity over quality. They need to pull back to one or two better updates per day rather than loading up the crap that they do.

What I am glad you reported on was the "HD" stuff is now lower quality. It wasn't great the last time I joined a few months back, but now knowing it's even worse I likely won't ever join again. Why would anyone pay to join VB when it doesn't offer them anything they can't get for free on a Tube site? One of the reasons I pay for porn is to get access to better quality.

Oh how the mighty have fallen!
