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.

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

Roku Channel Updated

Everyone,

Just in time for the weekend: the VideoBox Roku channel has nice, full-screen preview images and the full set of fast-forward/rewind images once more. Thank you all for your patience as we worked with our content system to get the right images in place.

Next up in our Roku World, we will be adding HLS video streaming which provides the right bitrate for your bandwidth, like you see with Netflix and many other video-streaming providers. This work is already underway, and I will update this post as soon as it is live.

Cheers,
Bob and the 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

New Features Added!

Hey Everyone,

We recently released a couple of things I want to point out to you, since I’m hoping both will enhance your VB experience and just generally make your porn-browsing time better.

Delete Entire Folder

First off, to aid your stash management, there is a new button at the top of your stash pages that says “Delete Entire Folder.” (See image above.) This does exactly what it sounds like: whatever stash folder you’re viewing at the time will be emptied and the folder name will be removed. So now, you can quickly delete individual items by clicking the little trash can icon (see image below), or wipe out a whole folder at once. Happy stash cleanup!

Second, did you know we have a VideoBox VOD site? If there’s a scene or DVD you really want to see, and VideoBox doesn’t have it for some reason (usually because the studio wouldn’t license it to us), you can hit the VideoBox VOD site and search through more than 100,000 movies to watch on a pay-per-view basis, rent, or download to own. We’ve had a link to it in the top nav for years (see image below), but you’ve always had to create a new username and password, and re-enter your billing information…

vod

until now.

Much like our Live Girls implementation, if you paid for your VB membership with a credit card you can now just click the VOD tab, hit the link on that page, and you will automatically have an account at VideoBox VOD under your current VB username. Any charges you incur will go through your VideoBox account. As of today, you will also get 15 minutes of pay-per-view time absolutely FREE the first time you visit via the new page! The combination of our current library and this huge database of content is true nirvana for porn collectors.

So, enjoy these new additions, use up that free 15 minutes, and we’ll have more improvements to share with you before too long. Let us know if you see any issues or have any questions about the above.

Cheers,
Bob and the VB Team

Video Issues Update

As some of our members have mentioned on this blog and via email, we have recently had issues with some of our video servers. Aging hardware, heavy recent traffic and content scrapers repeatedly blasting the servers requesting videos (including what is likely a purposeful denial-of-service attack) have created a storm of activity for our Ops team to deal with. Sometimes the issues disappear completely and then return suddenly as attacks change, and we always respond as quickly as we can.

Please accept our apology for any inconvenience this has caused you, and rest assured that these issues are being addressed directly and will continue to be until service is not only restored but improved. We are literally working 24/7 to make things better, but with such a huge library of content any solution takes longer than anyone would prefer.

One important note: a common suggestion we have seen members offer up in scene comments is to change the mcache URL in a download if a particular scene is not downloading. This trick has actually made things worse, and as part of our operational improvements, it will stop working at all in the near future, so please refrain from doing it. If you have trouble with a given file, please let us know via our contact form, or try downloading it again a little later. In the meantime, hopefully one of the other 94,000+ scenes on the site will also be to your liking. :-)

P.S. If you are frustrated or unhappy with any aspect of the site, send us a message using our contact form and our customer service team will do their very best to make you happy again. We believe it is our job to provide you with a satisfying service in return for your money and loyalty, and contacting us is always more effective and direct than blog or scene comments which we may not see until later.

Best Regards,
Bob and the VB Team

“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.

Studio Spotlight: Anabolic – One on One Scenes

aurora
Wonderful to be back on the blog – my sincere thanks to Josh. I’ve been asked to submit a new article every other week. I chose to start by highlighting one of the studios that has been added to the VideoBox stables since my last posting – Anabolic. Today’s entry will focus on one-on-one scenes, and a future post will cover threesomes. I’ve embedded the flash player to showcase three dozen of my favorite Anabolic boy-girl scenes. Click the flash player to see a one minute preview of the scene, and if you like what you see, click the link above the flash player for the full scene. I will be adding scene comments in the days ahead. Let me know your opinion of the embedded scenes, and if I failed to include one of your favorites, list it in a reply to the post and I’ll link it up.

Its here, it’s finally here!!!

I’m sure most of you have already noticed, but for the few of you who don’t check the site daily, you may have missed two very exciting additions to the VB catalog: Jules Jordan and most recently, Anabolic. These deals have literally been in the works for years. Finally, after a lot of negotiation we walked away with hundreds of excellent titles from these two top tier studios. We are very excited to welcome Jules Jordan and Anabolic to the VideoBox family and I hope all of you enjoy the quality porn that’s coming your way.

Bouncing Babes

header 1008
I was never much of a fan of The Man Show, but one segment of the series I did enjoy was Girls on Trampolines. The trampoline isn’t a frequent prop in porn scenes, but it does manage to make an appearance every now and then. In this post, I’ve gathered all of the site’s scenes I’m aware of which feature trampolines. Undoubtedly I’ve missed a few. If you know of any trampoline scenes that I haven’t included. please let me know with a reply to the post. I’ve embedded the flash player to preview the scenes. If you wish to view the full scene, click the link above the flash player. Finally, a big thank you to Alison for suggesting the catchy and appropriate title.

Showered With Love

header 0723
I love watching videos of girls in the shower. Is this because one of my very first sexual encounters with a girl occurred in the shower? Or is it due to the fact that while innocently testing out a newly received gift pair of binoculars, I locked in on a young woman just as she was stepping out of the shower? Or is it because the upscale showers featured in adult videos, with all the fancy gadgets, attachments and accessories, send me into a nice daydream of renovating my own dilapidated shower? I believe all three factors play a role in my appreciation of shower scenes (but mostly the first two, lol). For this article, I’ve collected fifteen of my favorite shower scenes. I’ve embedded the flash player for previewing the scenes. Click the link above the flash player if you wish to view the full scene. I have included capsule summaries for all fifteen scenes. Undoubtedly, there are many other excellent shower scenes on the site. Please let me know your favorite scenes featuring a shower, bathtub, whirlpool, jacuzzi, etc. I’ll link everything up, making your recommended scenes clickable.
