      Any progress on this? It makes it much faster and easier to upload to other sites to use FTP.

          It wouldn't just improve client satisfaction: it would also mean crowdsourcing some of the work mods have to do otherwise

            You have to put on your own watermark, using your own software, before you upload the video to this site. There are several programs you can find online for free that will do this

              The people who upload get to decide if they want their own videos to be free or for pay.
              Xtube does not get to decide that.

              Some people love being exihbitionist so much, they are willing to give their videos away, even though it takes time and work to make them.

              Other people enjoy being watched, but they also want at least some small compensation for the time and effort it takes to film and edit and upload and process the videos, so they choose to charge for it.
              When a USER *chooses* to charge for their own video content, xtube automatically makes a 15 second preview of the entire video, so that viewers can decide if it is worth it for them to buy the whole thing.
              Again, xtube has no control over whether an amatuer user decides to charge (or how much).

                The clips are not 15 seconds, only the preview. The whole video is there, you just have to pay for it. It is a lot of time and work for an amatuer to film, edit, upload and process the videos you see, why do you feel entitled to watch it for free?
                The videos are not ads to other sites, it is content filmed at home and uploaded to this site.

                The ads to other sites are all titled "xtube sponsor" and they are full length and free.

                  If you want to flag, sign in. If you don't want to sign in, you don't get to flag. It is that simple.

                  The flagging system could be overhauled though, to have several different flags instead of just one.

                  Banned / illegal content, copyright infringement, miscategorized, spam - then if one video gets several flags for the same infringement on the same day, it should alert a human mod to look at it more closely, instead of just automatically deleting.

                    Agreed. In particular, it would be nice if there was any way to control the release dates of free videos, just like there is with pay videos, or at least specify the order of release.
                    It is very challenging to have videos come out in order when free videos take any where from 3 to 5 days, and pay videos from a few hours to 2 days.

                      The 15 second videos are not ads for other websites.
                      The ads for other websites are all called "xtube sponsor", and they are free.

                      The 15 second previews are of full videos on THIS site, uploaded by actual amateurs doing real stuff.
                      It takes a lot of time and effort to film and edit and upload home movies, and if you want to watch real couples doing real stuff in their actual homes, they deserve compensation for the work they put in to let you watch, just like any one else.

                      The people who are trying to promote other websites are the ones who upload free stuff, because they are trying to get you interested. The paid content here is the most likely to be genuine amateurs.
