HD is here!!!

Hey Videoboxers,

I know you guys have been chomping at the bit to get HD and I’m happy to tell you that it’s finally here! Woohoo! We took a little longer than expected so to make it up to you we’re dropping the first HD title tonight as a bonus to today’s 5. It’s gonna be a Digital Sin title which is one of the many studios you’re going to start seeing in HD including some awesome new studios like Wicked and Burning Angel. So the way it’s gonna go is you’ll get your five DVD’s a day and the first one displayed will be in HD starting tomorrow. You’ll recognize it by the little banner that says HD on it. Ok, I think I’ve said HD about 20 times now. You’ve got the point, we’ve got HD. Enjoy.

-Noah

    Thanks Noah I for one am very glad to see this happen. Now, I am just making a suggestion, and I hope no one sees this as sounding like I am bitching. I would also like to see in addition to the one HD posted each day, that you try where possible to provide an HD option for the premium channels. Kink does a lot in HD already, but Evil Angel and Vivid too, maybe?

    Anyways . . . thanks VB and congratulations! I can’t wait to DL some HD this weekend!

    Of course I welcome HD format, who wouldn’t. So thanks for that. Just one thing. I was disaapointed to see you chose H.24 for HD. I often do a quick edit of the videos with Windows Live Movie Maker which literally takes only a few minutes because no recompression is done with wmv files. Unfortunately and not surprisingly it doesn’t handle H.24 format as efficiently and even crashes sometimes.

    Danke. Merci. Thanks. Graci. you get my point.
    About time but thanks.

  7. Strangepork Says:

    One request: Please add HD to the category tags or do something else to make them easier to find.

  8. Ken Says:

    @Strangepork: There is a HD logo on the bottom of the screenshot of the cover page of each movie/dvd. Let’s first get like 20 HDs and then ask for a tweak.

    One step at a time.

    great! thanks!

  10. rj Says:

    SWEET! Now off topic a bit. I just got my new used 1st gen. iPad and the New site(vb3) isn’t very iPad friendly. I hope that you never abandon the old site!

  11. Jordan Says:

    @Strangepork: an HD tag is in the works along with graphic to specify that a title is HD.

    @rj: A site designed to work specifically on mobile devices and tablets is definiteley something we have planned for the future :)

  12. Ken Says:

    OK ROPE, you are up. Give us the HD preview. wink wink.

  13. ropeadope Says:

    @ Ken – Have you heard the expression the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry? That was at work here. I will try my best to do a preview for an upcoming HD title in the not too distant future.

  14. Santa Says:

    Thank you!=)

    h264 is a good choice though personally i prefer x264.But they are basically the same

  15. Santa Says:

    Are there any plans on bringing us beautifully shot XXX movies from Blueburd? Like Batman, Bonny and Clyde=)
    thanx

  16. stook Says:

    Big step in the right direction. Now we just need to implement the encoding improvements on the regular DVD content that reached near consensus in the earlier thread about dropping WMV.

  17. Frag Says:

    I’d been looking for other site options that offered HD content. That was basically my ONLY complaint with VB. I guess now I don’t have to go hunting around for a different provider.

    Thanks!

  18. Shawn Says:

    I can make better quality videos with smaller file sizes with HandBrake and a BlueRay disc………but alas the porn studios wouldn’t agree to let VB put that on this site(and I’d pay $35 for one Amy Reid Scene). Sincerely VB, thank you and congrats for convincing the studios to let you do this HD thing.It’s groundbreaking

  19. reframe Says:

    This is great news, HD was the only thing you guys were missing. Great job and great first post! ***Rope Lives! I’m waiting for your preview, Rope.

  20. rj Says:

    Yeah quality could of be a little better for the file size! I don’t suppose VB could add HD category or filter.It Would be nice before there are to many DVDs to do this! Thanks.

  21. rj Says:

    did we switch the HD format to h.264 from WMV?

  22. Pleasure123 Says:

    Great to be able to download in HD to view sharp high quality photography. It seems more real when viewed in HD.

    I wonder if you might consider custom clips to be downloaded in HD. It would be useful as then I could download a portion of the Video and not have to download the whole scene which is a large file size in HD.

    HD would also be useful in shorter scenes so there is not so much data to download.

    Could an option be added so that all the HD videos can be tagged. Useful if you want to see what videos are available in HD on Videobox.

    Great new HD content, I love videobox, just signed up to this site. Hoping for some Diabolic or more Vince Voyeur content in HD if possible. You could switch to WMV for 720p, because WMV DVD already looks fantastic. WMV DVD is one of the reasons I signed up for a year.
