Where are the WMV files?

We are no longer offering WMV as a file download format as of January 29, 2015. As most of the world has moved on to the MP4 (also known as h.264) format for streaming video and downloads, and no affordable cloud-based encoding providers offer WMV as an option, we are following suit and limiting our download format to MP4.

Mac Users: the MP4 format should play for you without difficulty, both when streamed and downloaded. QuickTime Player is typically set as the default player for Mac, and the excellent VLC Media Player from VideoLAN can be used to play MP4 files on all operating systems.

Windows Users: Fortunately, Windows Media Player 12 can stream MP4s just as easily as it handles WMVs. Click here to download the latest Windows Media Player.

As mentioned above, VLC Media Player can be used to play MP4 files on all operating systems. Click here to download VLC Media Player.

Additionally, Windows users can set up Internet Explorer and other browsers to stream MP4s through VLC Media Player the same as they stream WMVs through Windows Media Player, using the instructions on this page.

We welcome your feedback on this decision, and the instructions we have provided; you can do so via the contact form on this site, as mentioned below under the heading “Other questions? Comments?”.

Out with the old, in with the new.

It’s been 7 years since our old web site, known as VB2, was launched.

In that time, the cost of using the cloud to support our business has plummeted while the ease of doing so has increased. This year, we realized that to continue providing an affordable, feature-rich adult-video experience to all of our valued customers, we need to replace aging hardware and code with a cloud-based solution.

The technology we used to create VB2, and the infrastructure in place to run it, are both no longer supported. In order to move to the cloud, it is much more costly and time-consuming to attempt to make the old site work than it is worth. For these reasons and others too arcane and boring to list here, we have taken the old site down as part of our migration.

Over the last several months, we have made some design and code improvements to VideoBox.com that we hope will ease the transition for users who still frequent the old site. The biggest has been a replacement of our search technology, as feedback from fans of the old site overwhelmingly listed the search functionality on VideoBox.com as the main reason they kept going back. We also plan to implement a redesign in 2015 that will further combine the best aspects of both sites into one cleaner, faster-loading experience. For a preview of how this redesign will generally look, click here.

We welcome your feedback on all of these decisions; you can do so via the contact form on this site, as mentioned below under the heading “Other questions? Comments?”.

Update: Old Site & WMVs Back

UPDATE 1/1/14: The old site is back online and can be found at vb2.videobox.com. The WMV format and the “back to the old site” link on the new site are also back. Thank you all for your patience during this time, and Happy New Year! Please continue to use the “contact us” form on the site if you need support.

Cheers,
Bob

************ end of update ************

Hey All,

As some of you have noticed, we have experienced issues with a couple of our video servers this week. We are now taking every possible measure to resolve these issues, including temporarily removing the ability to download the WMV format and redirecting the old site to the new site. This is so we can streamline server traffic and add updated hardware to our server pools more quickly.

Rest assured that this is a temporary solution, and we are not planning to keep the WMV format off the site, or have the old site down, any longer than absolutely necessary. We will continue working around the clock and will restore everything to normal as soon as we are satisfied that we can do so and still give you all the best possible experience.

Who’s The Girl In The Home Page Video?

Hey VideoBoxers,

We’ve had several people ask for a list of the girls in the looping preview video we show on our home page before you login to the site. The final version was culled from a huge selection of our content which was whittled down over time, and some of the starlets’ appearances are so brief or difficult to identify that there’s no way we could figure out who everyone is. Individual portions of preview videos like this are selected for the hotness of the action, and what we think will show off our wares in the most enticing manner to potential members, rather than strictly by title, studio, or star.

Screen Shot 2013-10-21 at 12.09.56 PM

All that aside, I asked our hard-working team members to come as close as they could to a list of “Who’s That Girl?” and here’s what they could determine for you:

Starting from “15,000 movies” girl giving double handjob:

  • Double handjob – Kristina Rose
  • Oiled Ass- ???
  • Standing dog 3some – don’t know
  • Big booty dick rider – Alexis Texas
  • Girl with finger in mouth – Tori Black (not positive)
  • Blonde with big tits getting fucked – Alanah Rae (not positive)
  • Tit fucked brunette – Rebecca Linares
  • Bukkake broad – London Keyes
  • 2 leopard print lesbos – No clue (Euro girls for sure)
  • Screaming girl getting boned – Kristina Rose
  • Drooling dick – Skin Diamond
  • Big titty fuck with tongue ring – Katie Kox (we think)
  • Pantie chick – Rebecca Linares (we think)
  • RCG anal grinder- No clue
  • Oiled up titty fucker – Kagney Linn Karter
  • Oiled doggie style – Tori Black
  • Kissing girls – One is Kelly Divine (we think)
  • Dick Sucker – Sunny Lane
  • Crying Doggie style girl – Sadie West
  • Facial chick – Diamond Kitty
  • Blonde with finger in mouth – Angelina Armani
  • Blonde facial – Nikki Sexx (not positive)
  • DP – No clue

So, there you have it. We hope this helps you find some new favorite stars! And, you can always have some fun tracking down the ones we didn’t know on VB and letting us all know what’s what in the comments below.

Cheers,
Bob

Roku Questions

How do I install the VideoBox app on my Roku?

Step-by-step information on setting up the VB Roku app can be found at: http://www.videobox.com/tour/vbtv

How do I start a Roku free trial?

Information on how to start your Roku free trial can be found at: http://www.videobox.com/tour/vbtv-trial

How do I sync the roku app with my VB account?

If you are already a VideoBox member and have the VideoBox roku app installed, simply do the following:

  1. Open the VideoBox Roku app
  2. Select “I have an account” and you will be shown a screen with a sync code
  3. Go to your account page at www.videobox.com/billing/account and enter sync code in the field shown under “My Roku Settings”
  4. Your TV/Roku screen will update automatically when the sync is completed

 

How do I get access to all the content, not just what I see in the rows in my Roku page?

If you are looking for more content than what you see in the Roku app, fear not – there are several ways to access our huge library of movies and scenes!

For full members and users who are on a free-trial subscription, you can use the search feature in the Roku app to search for scene/movie titles. Simply go to the “Browse” section of the Roku app and scroll down. You will see the search button.

Users who have a full subscription are also able to stash any content they find on our site and then access those scenes and movies on their synced Roku app.

How do I hide the roku app? Install discreet app?

Using an access control pin will prevent unwanted visitors in your channel, but it won’t prevent people from seeing the channel on your Roku home screen. For that, you can install this alternative channel: https://my.roku.com/account/add?channel=vbdiscreet.

The channel itself is identical to our flagship videobox channel, but the logo and messaging that appear on the roku home screen are different, such that anyone seeing them won’t think they’re associated with an adult-oriented channel. You’ll never get busted again!

I signed up for a full membership before my trial expired. How can I sync my account?

If you signed up for a full membership before your free trial expired and need to sync your roku to the new account, simply email customer support at support@videobox.com

How do I set Parental Controls (password protection) on the Roku app?

Enable an access control pin. From your “My Account” page, once you’ve synced your Roku to your VB account, under the “Roku Settings” heading, you’ll see a entry field called “Access control pin (4-digit)”. Simply enter a 4-digit (numeric) pin there, and you’ll be required to enter that pin each time you enter the channel.

How do I add Premium Channel content to my Roku?

Members can add Premium Channel content to their Roku accounts at anytime in the “My Account” section of VideoBox.com

Simply login to VideoBox.com and click on the “My Account” link in the top right hand corner of the site. Once in your account page, you will see green buttons where you can upgrade to add premium content to your subscription.

How do I add Premium Channel content to my Roku?

You’ve got more than one room in your house, right? Well, why not put a Roku in each of them, then you can enjoy hot VideoBox action wherever you are in your house!

Once you setup your first roku and install the VB app on a new roku, simply click “Link this Roku to my existing account” and you’re all set! Your additional Roku will work precisely like your primary Roku, with the same feeds, Stash and Parental Control. If you unlink your primary Roku from your VideoBox account, it will unlink all your Rokus.

Account and Login

Unable to login – Maximum login attempts reached.

This message will be displayed when there have been several failed login attempts on your account within a short period of time. It’s not uncommon for hackers to use programs that automatically attempt logins with a list of common or randomly generated passwords with hopes of forcing account access. To protect our customers and to thwart these hacking attempts, we have implemented a time-out period once a failed login threshold has been met.

Members can reset their passwords at anytime by filling out the password reset form at PASSWORD RESET. Once your password reset is completed, the timer will be cleared and you can login with the new password.

If you continue to receive these timeout messages even after recent successful logins or password resets, please contact us at the following link and we’ll provide you with some additional solutions to secure your account.

“Sexy Slayer” Video, In Honor of Jeff Hanneman

Many of us here at VB admire the guitar stylings of the recently-deceased Jeff Hanneman, so much so that our content guru made a fantastic compilation he calls “Sexy Slayer.” We offer it to you all now, just to put a smile back on everyone’s faces after a sad day. We can’t help but think Jeff would have approved.

R.I. P. Jeff Hanneman of Slayer.

More Info:
Jeff Hanneman’s death yesterday morning was confirmed in a statement on the band’s Facebook page: “Slayer is devastated to inform that their bandmate and brother, Jeff Hanneman, passed away at about 11am this morning near his Southern California home.”

“Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure.”

He is survived by his wife Kathy, his sister Kathy and his brothers Michael and Larry.

Hanneman founded Slayer with fellow guitarist Kerry King in the early 1980s. The group was among the “big four” thrash metal groups of the era alongside Megadeth, Metallica and Anthrax.

Why do I get the message “You cannot view video on the web at this time” or “You cannot take this action”?

If you are seeing either of these messages on the full VideoBox.com website, then you are subscribed to our Streaming-only plan or Roku-only plan and are attempting to use a feature that is only available to full videobox members.

Streaming-only members are able to stream content but not download videos.

Roku-only members are able to watch content only on their roku boxes but are still free to search, browse, and manage their favorite DVD and scene stash folders on VideoBox.com.

Clips cannot be stashed or viewed by Roku-only members at this time.
