Site Maintenance This Thursday 3/29/16

Hey VideoBoxers,

Please note that our team of sexy engineers (led by the team leaders seen in the photo below) is going to do some database maintenance on VideoBox and VideoBoxMEN at around 11am Pacific Daylight Time this Thursday, March 29. We expect this to take down both sites for roughly 10 minutes. You will all see a not-so-sexy maintenance page while the sites are down.

Please let us know if you have any concerns or questions directly related to this. If you have specific technical or billing support issues, your best bet as always is to use our Contact Us page.

Best Regards,
Bob and the VB Team

Without a win, we won’t get harassed like this at the awards show this year. Won’t you help us?

For those of you unfamiliar with the XBIZ Awards, it is the biggest and most prestigious awards show in adult entertainment today.

We’ve Added Dating!

Hey VideoBoxers,

Sometimes watching previously-filmed porn scenes just isn’t quite enough. Thanks to our new partnership with the biggest, most popular adult dating network on the web, we are pleased to introduce VideoBoxHookups.com, our very own site where you can meet partners for whatever action you could possibly want!

dating

Like our cams site, VideoBoxCams.com, VideoBoxHookups.com offers interaction with real live girls and can be accessed from a link on the main navigation at the top of the VideoBox site — in this case, the one that says “Dating.” Unlike our cams site, however, the girls here not only want to flirt, chat and interact in a range of possibilities limited only by your imagination; ultimately they want to hook up in person.

We wish all of you some fun, sexy and fulfilling time with any number of hot ladies across the globe. Let us know what you think of this new dimension to the VideoBox experience.

Enjoy,
The VideoBox Team

P.S. Yep, this is what that new banner on the homepage is about. :-) Enjoy!

Happy Surfing,

Flow Mode Updated

Everyone,

Like the Roku channel, we have another item functional in time for your weekend: flow mode is showing watchable-resolution videos when you select one. Thanks again to all of you for your patience as we worked feverishly to get our player to show the good stuff.

flowmode

Rest assured, if there’s something else not quite working for you, someone has been tasked with making it right and won’t be resting until it is. And you should hit us up with any issues you are having via our Contact Us form, where awesome customer service folks are ready to dive in and help you get the site working for you.

Enjoy,
Bob and the VB Team

Old Site (VB2) Retired

Dear VideoBoxers,

ship-sailed

Today we bid a fond farewell to our old site, known to many as VB2, as it sails beyond the horizon. Thank you to everyone who enjoys this site, whether in its old form(s) or in its current one, or both. We know some of you are sad to see her go, but all of us here at VB strongly feel that this is going to turn out great for all of you in the long run. Believe me, we would not have done this if we didn’t.

So, even as we say goodbye to the old site and the codebase that supported it, we are excited about the modern makeover VideoBox is getting behind the curtains and the redesign that is soon to come. Stay tuned, because this is not an ending but a new beginning.

Cheers,
Bob and the Whole VB Team

Welcome… to the FUTURE!

Hi Everybody,

Yes, it’s a huge week here at VideoBox HQ, as we boldly venture into… the FUTURE!

OK, so mostly what I mean by that is, as of now we are no longer offering WMVs for scene downloads. You can get more info about the decision, and tips for using our other files, on this page.

back-to-future

But the move away from WMVs is only part of a sweeping modernization and tech upgrade. We are finishing up our migration from our own servers to a fully-virtual cloud solution for our application and content servers.

If that makes no sense to you, don’t worry about it; the simple version is, the site will be run with the latest technology, including video streams that get higher- or lower-res depending on your Internet connection. This should make things faster and snappier for you and make it easier for us to grow and improve.

I can’t promise you there won’t be some rockiness along the way, and some of you may have seen a little of it in the last week or so, but rest assured that when this migration is complete it will make 2015 a great year to watch porn.

Leave us a comment below or send an email via our contact us form if you have questions, concerns or words of celebration. Here’s to the future!

Best Regards,
Bob and the Whole VB Team

US Govt Warns: Stop Using Internet Explorer

Hey Guys,

Coming closely on the heels of news regarding the Heartbleed bug, the U.S. Homeland Security Department’s Computer Emergency Readiness Team is now saying to stop using Internet Explorer until Microsoft can fix a different flaw specific to that browser.

We just want to pass that along to you, both to protect your security and to enhance your browsing experience. For both Mac and Windows, we recommend using Google Chrome, but Firefox and Safari are also decent options. In any event, it sounds like your best bet is to stop using any version of IE.
