||+Large library of DVD's (second only to VideoBox at the current time)
+Streaming capabilities in high OR low quality.
+Ability to edit tags on the movie in the event the editors got them wrong, or forgot a few.
+Provides users high quality images of the front and back covers for each movie.
+Six DVD's are added per day (which is more than VideoBox's five per day)
+Each actress has an IAFD style page, with a headshot provided in most cases. This is very helpful.
+A smaller amount of Audrey Hollander content than VideoBox (73 DVD's compared to 94 DVD's)
||-Unlike other sites which have kept download formats standard, VideosZ are now on their third standard. This would be fine if all the movies were converted to this standard, but you can find movies provided in the second and even the first standard. The first standard, which was the best, provided LQ WMV, HQ WMV, HQ MPEG, and HQ DivX. I don't understand why they ditched it. The second standard was a train-wreck. Movies were provided in LQ, MQ, and HQ DRM WMV. The current standard is HQ DivX, and HQ/LQ flash stream.
-Too many movies are still in the DRM WMV format. Yes, they are provided with an unlimited free license so they work after you cancel your membership, but it is a major annoyance as these videos have to be used with Windows Media Player.
-Too many DVD's have the cast list but do not assign the names to the scenes.
-Videos have the VideosZ site watermark.
-Rather expensive. $29.95 gets you 480x360 divx, while $9.95 gets you 480x352 WMV's at VideoBox.
||It is a good DVD site but needs a lot of work to be #1. I put it well behind VideoBox because VideoBox goes through all the extra effort to provide several formats and qualities and to get a greater percent of scenes tagged with the performer name (both sites have issues with performer name accuracy, but it is worse with VideosZ). Also the price is rather insane when you think about it. $9.95/mo at Videobox gets you 480x352 video with no watermark, while $29.95/mo is what you pay for watermarked videos at VideosZ.
Recommendations for VideosZ to improve:
*work on standardizing all the movies. It is really unprofessional (in this business) to have a third of your movies in one set of formats (MPG/DIVX/WMV), another third in a different set (DRM'd WMV), and another third in yet another set of formats (DIVX/Flash).
*work on getting accurate cast lists
*work on tagging scenes with the performer name(s)
*make your service cheaper
