Don't use Supernovatube anymore!!


Guys...I would recommend you guys not to use SupernovaTube anymore...Since they have got Zango on the video page and its really not advisable to download the toolbar.So avoid using SupernovaTube links as well as please avoid adding those links!!

Yup, actually, Supernova turned 'bad' quite a while ago...I was told by Supernova that service to my country was discontinued because no donations were collected from it, whenever I tried to watch a video! I find Zshare to be the best now...

This makes me very angry. They had a good service, often with one of the nicest set of videos. Why did they ruin it with Zango?

Wow, what a shitty thing to do. I knew they had restrictions on countries but I just thought it was countries who ban domains anyway. I never thought for a second it was a money thing.
Is it the same group that ran back in the day? Im sceptical that it is. I mean, they had that site up for years without forcing donations, seems like a thing they wouldn't do.

My country was also blocked a while ago, now for some reason it's unblocked.
But supernova converted to DivX video now, I dont see anymore videos in flash there. And for me Divx videos only work on, which is now the only site I use for watching :)

@muffinman No, it hasn't been removed. I just deleted a link on the newest House because it has Zango, so they are still using it.

@mumair Your rudeness is unwarranted. I am a mod here, and it is my job to delete links that break SideReel's rules, including having Zango on the site.

But tvqueen... many of us do not get Zango through the site. In fact now that its using Divx its the fastest, highest quality source on the web for me (and im sure a few others )

@tvqueen that's really bad to hear.. And also surprising that it's only showing up for certain people.. Possibly country-related.. Are you getting the "bad" zango?
@pixelated unfortunately any sites that violate the rules will have to have their links removed, even if it doesn't affect certain people

@muffinman I have Zango blocked from activating, so it only warns me without damage to my computer. The video is blocked with a message that the video will not be displayed if an ad blocker (e.g., NoScript) is in place.

@tvqueen..... There was a Supernovatube link in How I Met Your Page...I deleted it!!

I tried it through several proxies, American, Canadian, Australian, etc., and they all gave the same results:

If you have a scriptblocker on to prevent the Zango, then you don't get to see the video.j I have a feeling this means the Zango is automatically loading on to the visitors' computers

@yoga123 I'm reporting the site to the admins to have them removed automatically on their final decision. I think it's become dangerous, and really annoying.

Feb 3, 2009 8:55AM EST

not really had any prob with supernova its always been great for me never had zango on it always been able to use it

@tvqueen Oh I thought you meant there was a gateway which wasn't showing for me. On the other hand, I do get a Transferring data from in my status bar, so may some form of their spyware/adware/whatever is being installed on my computer.. Either way, it's disappointing, and the site will definitely have to be banned..

what sort of rubbish is this?
There is no zango on supernova tube!
Hint: Firefox + noscript and I have never once come across a zango pop up or advert when watching any video from every site in the last 3 years.
Supernovatube has the fastest loading and most reliable videos, don't stop it because people are too dumb to use a proper web browser!

Also - tvqueen, i don't get where you found out that using a script blocker prevents the video from being displayed - it doesn't, that's just completely wrong.
I have zango blacklisted in noscript (not found on supernovatube anyway) and it lets me watch the videos just fine.
Do not remove supernovatube links ever, they are the only decent videos left!

@walkers While Firefox and Noscript give you security from the automatic download of Zango to your computer (and mine as well), other people do not use the two in combination and their computers can and will become infected with Zango. (Do not confuse my ability to diagnose a problem with an inability to protect myself from it.)
Zango is not on //every// Supernova video, no one said it was. But it is on many, if not all, of the new DivX ones added after a certain date (all the new teleivision episodes in DivX, for example). As you can see from the picture I posted, it does indeed block those videos from being displayed to the user if Zango is blocked by noscript or other adblocking means.
That said, the Admin have decided to hold off on a total ban of Supernova (because not all videos are affected). We are simply deleting the links with Zango. You, as anyone, are more than welcome to go watch them through another site or a search engine, but the links will not remain on SideReel to infect other users who do not have their computers protected from such garbage.

@guardianofhell if you are watching the new DivX videos (for television episodes, for example) and you are not using Firefox and NoScript, or an equiv., you may be infected by Zango, and I'd suggest reading on the internet how to remove it. The Zango automatically installs, and you may not have even known you picked it up.

I haven't seen Zango on Supernovatube at all... then again like Walkers I have Firefox with NoScript installed (as well as Flashblock and Adblock Plus).
Regardless of that, I hate Supernovatube. Why? Well because it shrinks all videos to 4:3, which means that shows and movies that air in 16:9 or similar formats get squished and look really, really gross.
In short, Supernovatube sucks.
Alternatively we could have everyone upload to Megavideo... But Megavideo is only good if you're watching one episode a day with no account or a free account (lucky for me my friend has a lifetime platinum account on Megaupload, that doubles for Megavideo, that she lets me mooch off of whenever I like... no limits on videos for me :D).
Anyway, something tells me that if we the users want a reliable, great video hosting service we are going to have to develop it ourselves, paying out of our own pockets to host it... and none of us have the money to do that, do we? So it's crap hosting on crappy sites for now (and probably a long while).

I'm wondering if someone complained to them as I'm seeing new DivX without Zango. Good on them if they removed it.
But I agree with your Kalinah that some of the videos are really feral looking.

I have Zango blocked.. you just need NoScript for firefox and you'll be fine.
Supernovatube is amazingly awesome. A 45 minute show will buffer completely for me in 2 minutes.

Also.. OK internet lesson here. If you watch videos online. You NEED to have NoScript and probably use Firefox as your browser. If you are not protecting your browser, you'll get viruses.
Go get it now! it's on the Firefox site under add-ons I believe.

I use Ninja Video almost exclusively.
Supernova tube links are the only reason I come to sidereel.
I can never find anything on the Supernova tube site. So I depend on external links to get me there.
Please keep the Supernova tube links. Thank you.
