elonlybuster (39) It's gotta be some DAMN good stuff. I tend to download a movie and watch it hours if not days later. Very rarely do I sit online and watch a video and get off to it.

Jay G (67) Streaming is not for collectors and works poorly on my system. Like the old car with a piston or two not working: putt, putt...putt...putt.....putt, putt, putt...putt...... Who wants to watch that?

lk2fireone (196) Jay G, my suggestion is to take a video of yourself and post it on PU. Then our fellow PU experts could make suggestions on how to improve your performance.

My personal opinion is that some of us might be interested in how you achieve this "Put-put-put" orgasm. Something drawn out like this might be even better than the very strong but brief "Wow" climax of some members.

messmer (137) I think streaming is great if you want a preview of a scene you want to download but "streaming only" .. no way. As Jay G writes most of us are collectors, watching a video on line is not half as satisfying as downloading it and watching it at leisure at our convenience.

Ch3fB0yard3 (1) If the site had a lifetime membership option, I'd be for it. But I'd have to think twice because there are sites that go out of business.
Does pay-per-minute count? If so, I'm a current member of such a site. And it happens to be a good enough deal to suffice for me.

graymane (33) Why not, indeed.
I'm one of the few who actually prefer streaming.
The "preview" factor wins out as for why.
Also, I'm not loading it on my harddrive -- an option I'm uncomfortable with, despite the fact downloads go into the tempoary folder and can be easily dumped.

pat362 (373) I'm a member of AEBN and Hot Movies and both of these are mostly streaming only sites. It's a nice place to see some old time movies that can't be found elsewhere and also a good place to see one scene out of a complete movie instead of buying the complete film. I don't use them as much now because Videobox has made a percentage of their content obsolete.

slutty (111) REPLY TO #6 - graymane :

Why are you uncomfortable with downloading a video to your harddrive graymane? Virus or space concerns?

I agree streaming is nice for previews, but I find it annoying as the only option, especially if poorly setup with tons of buffering and whatnot...

graymane (33) REPLY TO #8 - slutty :

No concerns with malware or viruses; maybe "space" is a factor, I donno. In retrospect, maybe "uncomfortable" was a poor word-choice.
But for the most part, Unless I've decided to save something, I find streaming quicker and more managable. For example, I can skip through unwanted parts of a scene, back up, and not set and wait for a clip to download.
As for buffering an' the like... I'm not bothered with that too much, I suppose because of having a hefty processor, bandwidth and memory allotment.

Lionheart (47) Never, I want to own something that I pay for. Granted there are many exceptions to this rule..but was for porn I want to have something that I can view at my own time

elephant (67) Yeah I still can't subscribe to a streaming site, especially the ones like hot movies as my buffering all the time internet connection would drive me mad when I'd paid good money to watch it. I did try a free 10 minutes at one of the pay for minutes sites and was left very disapointed as all it did was buffering every few seconds. I guess my internet connection is too slow yet for this.

RustyJ (145) No, I think never. I want to view material offline and I certainly don't want to limit my viewing to my subscription period.

Denner (235) Never - even if I now have very good speed.
Only download sites for me and my externals - care about all my good stash - and can go back and watch anytime - and older stuff, too...long after end of subscription.

messmer (137) REPLY TO #9 - graymane :

My reason for being uncomfortable about having any porn on my hard drive would be the age factor. I would not want my family to find my stash upon my demise that's why I keep everything on three highly encrypted externals. If they want to check them out, all they will see is three "empty" drives that need to be formatted.

messmer (137) Sometimes I really wish that more of our huge membership were interested in participating in the polls. We could really have an influence on webmasters if hundreds rather than dozens responded to questions like these. Webmasters do look in but the opinions of a handful of people don't carry much weight! :-(

My guess would be that most webmasters would not pay much attention to these polls unless the number of responding members was at least 1,000 or more. You would need a really large number to command the attention of most webmasters.
To be more effective regarding a positive response from webmasters, you would need some program that targets specific webmasters with polls that address issues relating to their websites (general or specific, e.g., streaming only content, download limits, etc.).

Yep, that's my view as well. Hundreds would be better but your thousands would be the ones with the power. A sample of 30 to 40 people taking part in a poll is not very accurate and would not cause any webmaster to change his plans. The polls are fun though and a nice daily distraction.

yote78 (5) There's some scenes I definitely want to keep and watch again, and a streaming-only site would not allow me to do that.

mbaya (364) I join sites so I can keep what I see. Streaming only sites are a major turn off.
