    Feel free to use this thread to discuss the file hosts (ex. Uploaded, Zippyshare, etc) used here at Phun. Maybe you've had a persistent problem, complaint, or even praise of a host? Or maybe you have a host to suggest? This is just a central place to discuss those issues.

    Keep in mind that this doesn't mean anything will come of these discussions. This isn't part of any planned host shake-up. We just realized that while mods sometimes discuss these things behind the scenes, there's no central place for phun members to do so. If months or years down the line we decide we need to add or remove a host, we'll (the mods and admins, not me specifically) have a record of opinions and maybe how they've changed over time. Or if we get a sudden influx of people reporting the same problem, we'll know something changed with that host, etc.

    Before commenting, be sure to read the existing rules on file hosts so you understand what hosts are already allowed and the policies surrounding them. And there's no need force a hurried opinion of the current hosts because, again, this isn't part of a host reorganization or anything. It's just a central place to discuss such things going forward.

    I saw that about imgbox. It's not working yet, at least for me.

    We don't want to allow embedded videos, other than youtube type vids. Our SVF forums are strictly downloads only, and will remain that way. There are several reasons for this, but suffice it to say it would make moderating a nightmare where our current rules are concerned if we allowed streaming vids. So that idea is out of the question.

    FYI producers such as EVIL ANGEL hunt you down thru your ISP and send warning letters, which is why I don't post videos anymore. If you get 2 warning letters your ISP can drop you without notice. I posted a 4 year old video and they came after me.

    Question about downloading videos. Are we reasonably safe from copyright trolls here?

    I've just started using Loadus.net recently. It's good. Free to download, no premium needed. Deletes inactive file after 120 days. Unlimited spaces for premium. Uploaders can get free premium for 1 year. They payout always on time. I don't know how to make this host allowed here!

    I've tried accessing files from the Openload file host but keep hitting a SSL Protocol error wall and Malware Bytes flags it as a Trojan threat. Has anyone else had this problem?

    suprafiles seems dead. Affliate program is not working since 11/14

    from wjunction
    Obvious now they will not count downloads for payment or pay pending balances, it has gone on too long.
    They are just trying to discourage us from deleting our files, so they can get some money before they disappear.
    Downloaders are complaining about pop ups and even adfly on the download links.


    What about to move filejoker to mandatory filehost list ??
