This is getting ridiculous

I am not a big fan of posts that are just complaining, but come on guys, this is getting ridiculous. Basically every single megavideo link i have clicked on today has been wrong! I didn't mind when they started only letting you watch 72 minutes, that's their prerogative but the wrong or short links? come on! that's something that we can totally control.

I absolutely hate clicking on a link and seeing the "for full episode go to" or having it be only a one second video, but now the links aren't even posted in the right show! I went to watch Bones and get a link to Harper's Island! There is also the fact that most of the time over half of the links are just reposts.

I know that we can mark the links as broken and the moderators will get to them but there are only so many mods compared to the number of people posting these links. So I am begging everyone to please please PLEASE stop doing this. This is a great site that I use way too much and if the quality of links keeps going down i will be incredibly distressed!

I hear ya buddy.... I went to watch Bones last night, and 1 second link I was like wtf?So here is my tip... find allytv? or watchseries link as that directs you to supernova - which is good quality, fast loading etc =)

Yeah. I gave up on Megavideo and the links like that. I just watch the Supernovatube videos. They load fast, have good quality, and don't have annoying ads. They look good in full screen mode, too. It's great. I don't even bother glancing at the other links anymore.

i agree with all the above suggestions, though I have to say..I hate youku and tudou links...they're so slow! From experience, it's usually faster for me to download an episode as a torrent rather than keep getting interupted by loading.

Youku is shite however Tudou loads fine for me but yeah supernovatube is the way to go. Yidio or watch-series more often than not has supernova tube links. Serioulsy I do agree megavideo short links suck!

When you guys find some of those short links, they are considered spam and I'd appreciate a heads-up so we can check to see who's uploading those rotten links and get rid of the spammers. Thanks!

I like Hulu for certain shows, one of them being Bones. Yes, there have adds, but it's only 30 seconds and I can live with because of the fact that I'm receiving good quality videos

I totally agree on the supernovatube links; they're the best :)But for the tudou links, there is a trick to make the videos load faster. Just right-click on the video and press settings, change the storage setting to 1 MB or 10 MB your choice and refresh the page. Of course it won't change a thing if your Internet connection sucks. This tip works for all videos ;)

Can someone tell me how to make DivX work ? When I go to any DivX such as Wise Vid or SupernovaTube DivX the movie frame comes up but nothing happens when I press the play button. I'm using a Macbook and have DivX loaded on my computer. It used to work great but nothing now... and so many great vids are DivX only.Thanks a million if you can help.

I'm a good ole fashioned brit so banned from Hulu, and ninjavideo seems to have some vendetta against me, but have managed to watch every episode of 30 rock (honestly without fail) through Click anywhere apart from the screen and you'll get a browser full of pop-ups, but worth it. Even when episodes have been off Megavideo for months it still works. A saviour...

I live in colombia, so networks here air episodes a little bit later. that's why I use megavideo to watch my fav series, the problem is the "72 minutes" warning. now i've switched to supernovatube and other video hosting sites. THese are ever better and less annoying

It annoys me that the sound is always off on the megavideo links, and also that for some reason, every time I try to watch something on Supernovatube, it closes ALL of the tabs and the internet window I have open. I've given up on it. I usually watch them on youku, because it loads faster with my new computer.

@bee-xo: that's never happened to me? do you use firefox or what because it sounds like there is a problem with your browser.
SNT is great but the links are usually only up for a short time and then they don't work as great, which sucks if you are catching up on a show.

Apr 27, 2009 4:40PM EDT

Hello All. If there is a problem with a link loading too slow or at all, then clicking the 'mark as broken' option is the best thing to do. Since the link content may be loading faster for different users in different regions then this action is more favorable then deletion. If the content in the link is flat out incorrect, or incomplete, then choosing the 'delete' option would be ideal. The more everyone contributes to cleaning up poor quality or unusable links, the better the watching experience on the site will be. Thanks All.

I second that motion!!!.. I dont have the DVR yet so my thursdays I have to catch up on on this site.. the megavideo is annoying.. but tolerable.. but the broken or short links and the ones who take me to a totally different site or to a link where you have to sign up for this of that to watch the show is very unnerving!!.. I always use the "mark as broken" link when that happens to do my part but like someone said earlier the moderaters can only keep up with so much!!!

Supernovatube is my preference but it can be a bugger to find a link sometimes and the Divx links don't work for some reason even though it will on others.Megavideo I'll use for single episodes because it's reliable and fast.Hulu's no good in the UK.
Ordinarly I don't use the "delete"/"mark as broken" links as I'm never sure it's just my PC that's screwing around and not the link but recently I've deleted a couple of links after being jumped by multitudes of pop-ups that managed to get round my blocker. Next time I will mark them as spam so that the admin knows who's putting this junk up.
I've never understood why people upload partial vids. Megavideo(HD) is always partial and crappy quality so I'm guessing the HD doesn't mean Hi-Def.

I pretty much always go with megavideo or supernovatube vids
A friend of mine buys a subcription to and three/four of us use it =P gonna have to start giving her something towards it! It's a good idea though if you have any friends who watch online.
The quality isn't great and the sound does lag occasionally so my favourite definitely is supernovatube divx!

I've been using supernovatube for ages, I really love it. The Flash links are great when you're in a hurry because they load so fast and they're still reasonable quality. The Divx links take a while longer but the quality is amazing.I've found the best site for SNT links is thetvbay. infoThey put links up really fast and it's usually SNT, WiseVid and sometimes a German Divx site.

May 5, 2009 7:49PM EDT

I agree with you. I always have to check now when looking for Bones episodes whether it's the full like 43 min episode or its missing the last ten minutes which is so stupid.

May 7, 2009 3:00PM EDT

I HEAR YA. Seriously. I mean the whole non episode is annoying but what really pisses me off is the links to episodes which are ten minutes short!
Then you can't watch the end for ages because of the damn 75 minutes rule!

May 7, 2009 5:00PM EDT

Megavideo works the best for me. Sometimes one person posts a bad link and that is reposted by everyone else! Just because people are posting a few bad links doesn't mean that every Megavideo link is bad!

May 8, 2009 5:20AM EDT

I think Megavideo is ridiculous for restricting viewing time to 72mins - you can't even watch 2 episodes with that!!! Or if you forget that you've watched on, the 2nd one cuts out at 30mins. SO ANNOYING!! Also really hate all those sites that say 'Premium Content Area' and ask you to complete a survey. WTF?!
Supernovatube videos seem to work the best for me. They don't have any ridiculous time restrictions, the quality is excellent and they buffer really quickly so you don't have to wait a for ages before watching them.
**If you can't find a Supernovatube link on the list, try and find the link instead, that takes you to the Watch-Series site which usually has the Supernovatube link on it!**

Erm . . .ok am I the only one Megavideo actually works for? I live in Ireland and it's the fastest loading site of all of them, and yes I have tried all of them. I've never come accross the 1 second links although I have found a few of the "for the full episode go to blahblahblah" ones, but usually the next link works. I admit though on the occassions where Im catching up on old episodes it's unbelievably frustrating to get the "this video has been removed due to infringement" page. Then I will use SNT, but I have to say, for the most part I stick to megavideo. . . .until my 72 minutes run out obviously :D

For those having problems with supernovatube DivX, use google chrome to view them.For some reason supernovatube DivX doesn't like firefox, but on chrome the video loads almost instantly.

pah. just dl the show you want off mininova or whatever. takes like 30 min, and it's way better quality than anything you'll find streaming. i only use this site for the awesome tv schedule and news.

you must let the megavideo video load and when it s loaded you wacht it works this way.remember to go offline even though you will be able to see only 72 min per day.hope it helps.

I have to agree with the whole megavideo thing. The worst part of it is that I am a paid custumer of megavideo and still get partial links etc.

May 10, 2009 5:56PM EDT

go on supernovatube duh thats wha everyone else does. or wait till your video loads and then turn internet off.heres some links and - these are supernovatube some flash some divx

Since someone is repeatedly posting to advertise for ninja, I signed up so I could point out that ninja has many serious problems, and it's frustrating when the only link I can find here is a ninja link that is highly likely to fail in some way. Their new server seems better, but the vast majority of their stuff is on the old one, and if you're trying to watch documentaries (funny since they are very proud of their docs, but a great many just don't work) or anything not very recent, you're in for frustration. Additionally, if you use a mac, you should know that the site admin likes to call you stupid and demand you buy a PC on the main page of her site.

theres nothing wrong with megavideo. I think its perfectaly fine. If you dont like it stopping after 72 minutes then dont watch megavideo or something that lasts 72 or more minutes.

I'm surprised that no one mentioned That site update new episodes really fast. The only downside is that the older episodes usually have dead links since it's on either megaupload or supernovatube. Also, you can try which has more choices, but a lot of it is from youku and tudou.

supernova tube is awesome but u must have a spyware and a virus protection because its a very sketchy site, mega video is chill but hat 72 min waiting =.= , tudou is cool, youku is really good if you are watching it when China is asleep, not alot of stuff are loaded on it but its good

I think generally the links on sidereel are no good for just aired episodes and other video media. I like some other sites. Some have been mentioned here, and others haven't. You need a good feeder site to Supernovatube. Also Wisevid has been pretty reliable. I am not a fan of zshare as they have had ad issues in the past. However most of these other sites are feeder sites to these reliable links. I think megavideo should not be used as they are unable to keep a semblance of balance, and they are trying to make bucks on the front end, and we know that this doesn't work. Can't tell you how many times i've been in the middle of a really good ep, and it's told me to come back in 54mins. arggghhhh :D I think Tudou, Youku, and all have thier place for older archive videos that are no longer available on western sites. It's like our backup HD. :D
