badandy400 (103) I say absolutely not! Even though I can usually download the streams, I still do not like it!

My 3 MBit connection is okay, but can not support high quality streams. Plus, I like to skip around videos a lot.

Offering me downloads is the best way to download my money.

TrashMan (Disabled) No, I'm sorry, streaming-only is not an option. Just look at XVideos.com. While a free site, all of their videos are streaming only and the buffering on their site is terrible, slow and long - not something I would pay for. A pay site would (and should) use better servers and would probably have better buffering times...but I still want to download the movies and have the ability to watch them in my video player of choice.

Toadsith (48) If the site provided streaming service as good as Hulu.com - then yes, I would join the site. It must be noted that I would only consider the site if the service was cheaper than the $30 norm. $15 a month would be acceptable assuming there was a reasonable database of content and a daily update schedule that is followed without fail.

williamj (9) I doubt I would join such a site.

elonlybuster (39) Absolutely not. My connection is not always fast as lightning, and sometimes I want to fast forward through to a certain scene and I don't want to wait for half the movie to load just to get to a particular scene.

Also I usually download multiple videos at a time and come back to view them later

Drooler (220) I'm with the resounding "no's." Tempting though they may be, I'll skip sites like Vivid's Brand New Faces, Jack's Playground, and Jack's Teen America because they only stream. They all sell DVD's, but I'm not a DVD-type guy.

Like badandy400 and elonlybuster, I want to get right to the nitty gritty of a scene. Steaming makes me wait longer, too much longer -- more than I can bear!

Jeffrey99 (29) No. Mainly for two reasons. My dsl isn't the fastest out there and it really isn't a realistic option for me to stream hi quality/HD videos.

Most videos I download, I like to skip around or fastly skim through it.

The only way I'd realistically think about doing it, was if it was only $10 or less per month. AS there are always ways around streaming only videos. It's just normally more of a pain in the ass then needed.

Monahan (44) NOPE. Same reason as I won't knowingly join a site that still uses DRM. Yes, a streaming site usually has more new stuff so there will be undiscovered treasures that I'll miss, but if I find something I really like, I'll be damned if I'll pay (and pay, and pay, and pay) to have future access to it.

lk2fireone (196) No. Want a copy on my PC of worthwhile videos. That's what I'm paying for.

Cybertoad (Disabled) Hmmm nope not a chance.
That like paying for bottled water and they give you empty bottles
to drink outta .
Yes sounds crazy and it is.

I am sure they would love it if they could keep you coming back each month to buy their crap. If I want to stay I will stay but not because I am forced to.
Streaming would breed that .

Wittyguy (105) Weeeeeee! I'll be the spoiler and say "maybe". Has Wittyguy been drinking too much eggnog you ask? No, I'm mainly about the pictures. If they have good sized and good quality pics in a genre that I like then I would definitely give consideration to joining even with vids being stream only.

Basically these poll results validates my point (and others certainly) that stream is/will become the next DRM alternative.

pat362 (375) I originally said no, but then I had to change to maybe since I do have an account at AEBN and Hot Movies. I don't consider those membership per say since it's really a pay per view system. Your membership if you want to call it that, requires that you buy streaming time. The advantage is that they have some truly rare movies that can't be bought or downloaded elsewhere. The other great thing is that you can stream only one scene from a movie. I like to own movie the same way that I like to own books. I would never join a stand alone site with exclusive material that did not offer down load capability.

Jay G (67) Never saw a streaming video that really worked well. Choppy junk is so much poorer quality than downloaded stuff.

PinkPanther (46) I've joined stream-only sites for a month at a time if they were priced reasonably - say $10-month. But I have never cared to stick around with sites that are being that cheap-ass

RagingBuddhist (65) Sure - I've got a three rolls of pennies and half-eaten sandwich I'd give up for a month on a streaming only site.

Lionheart (47) What's the point of paying money to look at porn, there is plenty of free porn out there, I prefer to pay to own

Cybertoad (Disabled) Double Dipping Here .

I have to agree, that there are many places like adult type you tubes that have low bandwdth free crap.
I havent seen anything close to match what I can download to or say Suze.net etc oin quality. If I want to see naked boobies in bad resolution I can google free crappy porn.
I am also sceptic of the legality of free stuff you get as well.
What little I have seen looks like edited from full lengths and chopped up making it hard to track. But looks like crap though.

Its like going to the theature and watching porn you leave with nothing other then stains on your pants to remember the event. LOL.

I have said and made stands before, I wont join or review sites anymore that the guys talk and talk and I wont join a stream only site either, like Badandy I have allot stored up to last along time, do not need to result to watching studdery low quality porn I did that like the rest of us whom DL'ed back in the late 90's why in the hell would I go back to slow distorted vids now?

By the way as an experiment I took a pay site streamed and Dl'd it
after coverting and editing I managed to make it look ok.
That after 30 minutes for a 20 minute clip using my top end editors.
And it still looks just ok, compressing and decompressing isnt good on movies but is eh only way to make it work lol and thats too much work.

RagingBuddhist (65) Just to throw an extra little thought in here, not that I would join a streaming only site anyway, but there are some good examples of flash media that's pretty decent quality. I haven't seen any porn sites this good (yet), but the videos at despair.com look better than what I think we've come to expect from flash media. I used a stream catcher to save 'em to the drives, a video converter to turn 'em into avi files, and the quality is as good as the average porn flick on average porn sites. Maybe there'll come a day when streaming sites won't be so... for lack of a better word... lame.

The videos (http://despair.com/spin.html) are also hilarious!

TheRizzo (23) I probably would since I re-watch the videos I save almost never.

But the quality and the quickness of the loading of the stream would have to be pretty good. No pausing to buffer etc.

nygiants03 (162) NO!!! The only reason I join sites is to download the videos.
