The upload server run out of storage thus some videos queued up. We cleared some space and everything should be back to normal in a couple of hours.
The video player got an update and now has:
- a modern design
- less flickering thumbnail previews
- higher playback speed options
- basic picture in picture support for Chrome
- in theory Airplay support (not tested)
If you miss something or have problems with the new player please let me know at /contact
The recording backend got rewritten and now also supports BongaCams and CamSoda. Which means you can also /vote
for models on these platforms.
Besides that the recording slots page got updated and now shows more details about the current status of your recording slots (checkout the short demo video at /upgrade
Unfortunately share-online.biz has been seized, to compensate this basic supporters now also have access to direct downloads.
It is now possible to upload videos again. Please don't overwhelm the server 😅. Also the video manager got some improvements:
- listing of queued/failed videos
- reactive encoding progress bar
If you encounter any bugs please report them at /contact
You may encounter a lot of not loading videos in the next couple of days, because we are moving older videos to a new storage server. This is also the reason why video uploads are disabled right now. But after that older videos should load fast again.
Great news the site got some new features & improvements:
- It is now possible to upload videos.

Also just as a reminder even with a free account you can permanently disable the stripper girls ad and will only see one popup. You can create one here: /register
You can now use your keyboard to control the video player, click on the keyboard icon at the player page to see all available hotkeys.
It is now also possible to change the playback rate of the video, which is very helpful to skim over boring parts of videos.
With the new timestamp feature it is possible to share video urls with a specific timestamp, in case you want to point your friends immediately to the best part of a video. How to create such a url is also explained under the keyboard icon on the player page.
We encountered some problems during switching the video storage. So many videos are not working currently, we know this and do our best to fix them as fast as possible.
We are very sorry for this.
