XTube Ideas and Feedback

Welcome!

This is a crowd-driven system for user suggested ideas and feedback to get more love from the XTube developers. Simply suggest ideas, and vote on ideas you like – Everyone can spread around up to 10 votes per day.

The best ideas will be implemented the soonest!

My idea is/I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Selective release of all private videos and photos to specific profiles

    I have tons of videos and photos in private. I would liket to release all of it to specific profiles I like that have the same ideas of what XTube should be (NEW FRESH CONTENT!). I DO NOT WANT TO ENTERTAIN THE WHOLE WORLD OF EMPTY PROFILES AND PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO OFFER THEMSELVES. Please, make a layered service where we the users can select who can see private content.

    • Consistent/longer item descriptions for polls

      Allow longer descriptions for poll items. Currently the initial screen allows any length, but the final poll is corrupted. The edit screen allows like 80 characters per item, but again the final poll is corrupted. Idea is to allow 160 characters per item, and to make all screens consistent to display them. This is not really an idea but a bug report, btw.

      • Fix single quotes turning into double quotes when saving profile information Infuriating, much?

        "Don't" becoming "Don"t" just looks nasty. Please fix this, and make the parsing a bit neater. Who wants line-break tags everywhere?

            • Private playlists

              I'd like to separate some videos into playlists, including private playlists like YouTube.

              • Adding video comments or pics set comments to users page might be a good idea.

                Adding video comments or pics set comments to users page might be a good idea. This way i could avoid opening my mailbox every time when i receive a mail of someone leaving a comment. Without this mail, i would never know that someone ever left a comment to my vid.

                Thanx...

                  • Let us know if a member ONLY ALLOWS comments from FRIENDS!

                    Nothing aggravates me more than to write a sincerely worded comment to someone and click POST to be told, "member only allows comments to be posted by friends". Is there so way when you start to write the comment you could be told, or could it be posted that this is their preference? Also, 99% of the time when I PM the member to please accept my friend invitation so I can leave them a comment, they DO NOT EVEN KNOW that they have opted that ONLY FRIENDS can post comments in the first place!

                        • Restore video quality

                          The quality of videos on xtube has gotten really shitty. The are all pixelated and blurry images. This isn't a user problem, it's xtube. People are just going to stop using this site.

                            • Provide guidance on achieving maximum video quality

                              This is related to the "Restore video quality" suggestion (http://feedback.xtube.com/forums/190858-xtube-ideas-and-feedback/suggestions/3739702-restore-video-quality).

                              > "we can't change the quality of the videos that are uploaded to us"

                              There's nothing worse than ugly video of a beautiful woman. Some people upload crappy video, and that's all on them. XTube can't *improve* the quality of uploaded videos. However, you can *degrade* the quality during transcoding.

                              When I compare my source material with what shows up on XTube, there's definitely a loss in quality. Some loss is unavoidable, because nobody can stream high bitrate video. My concern is that the loss seems variable, and…

                              • What happened to the sound?

                                I have been away from Xtube and recently returned and found that the sound tracts have all been x'ed out! These clips without sound aren't nearly as effective as those with the soundtrack. Any reason?

                                      • Provide a way to report videos wrongly categorised

                                        For example, select "I am male, I like male" as the option. There are lots of videos (particularly posted over the last few months) which are actually female, but are categorised wrongly. It would be good to have something in the search results page to press which would flag these as wrong so they can be reviewed and moved to the correct gender!

                                        • Photo/Video Category box overhaul

                                          The entire Category box setup as it is at present is incredibly poor. Quite a few Category names currently being used desperately need to go while a lot more than a few new Categories should be added.
