Because I think this is going to be the next site I join, I've been reading the comments and reviews and seen a couple people talk about the lack of quality in some of the more recent updates. So I thought about it for a second, and I realized something. That the death of DVD porn is basically the reason for the lessening of quality of the scenes here. Basically, pretty much any studio worth its salt right now, even if they are a primarily DVD company, is setting up its own website for its own content. And because of that, those companies aren't going to sell their content to sites like Videobox because then they lose the main reason for anyone to join their individual sites. The only companies that are going to sell them newer content is companies that just don't want to have an internet presence and companies that try to be more about selling the experience of their website than selling their content (Pink Visual being an example of that). So the only thing they have left to buy is older content. And as DVDs become less and less important, they have less and less new content to buy, and have to search for older content that they haven't bought yet. So either they're going to have to get into the business of creating their own content, or they're going to be left scraping the bottom of the barrel.
Well folks, the crew at vb has been working with great success on new and innovative ways to kick shit into the faces of their customers.
First, a couple of weeks back they decided to hide the daily updates. They moved them from the home page to another page on the site so you would have to click through a couple of pages and search for them. They did not announce this change, but after lots of complaints they posted a blog with an explanation that pretty much said "Tough Shit" this is what we want to do. Clever huh? Actually, since most of the updates the last few months have been old blurry low def scenes, tranny's and other such crap, not being able to find the updates is kind of a blessing in disguise.
Second, two big changes to the site today, the first one is, ITS GONE!!! Site has been down most of the day. If you try to connect, even as a visitor, you get the dreaded 404 blank page. If you do get through, the wait for a scene to load is upwards of 2 minutes.
Third, on the chance that you do get to log on, they have introduced the "guess the star" game. This game is simple. They just quit posting the name of the star or stars on all of the scenes. So its like pot luck without the luck!!! Unless you can recognize each of the several thousand stars on the site, its just a big crap shoot!
Stay tuned for more updates on the most shabbily run pornsite on the web.
I subscribed to VideoBox for the first time in over a year this week. They have a new(er) feature called "Flow Mode" that's an alternative way to browse random video clips. When you select Flow Mode rows of clips start scrolling across your screen. All the clips are playing (no volume) so you get a quick preview. If you click a clip it expands and starts playing from where it left off in Flow Mode. There is also a filter option that lets you use Flow Mode for a specific niche.
For some time now Videobox also delivers some updates as "HD", being 720p resolution. While those videos really contain that resolution, they actually look quite blurred and bad compared to the usual 720p quality i know. Making me wonder, if they maybe just create this HD from a DVD source and just upscale it.
I can't recommend anyone who looks for HD videos to join. If you are satisfied with DVD quality though, this site is just fine.
This morning VB didn't post today's updates, only yesterday's updates were shown. Later in the morning the site is down; no video's, no updates, can't even log in. Stay away, there is no infrastructure, technical expertise or customer support on this site.
Videobox VB3 is working this morning............IF you don't mind waiting up to 60 seconds for a scene to load. VB2 is working fine as usual. Guess the VB crew took the day off to watch a parade somewhere.
