VidBit changed to Vidlii because Jan got threatened with a lawsuit. Also, you can change the video player to HTML5 if you don't like the default. The reason it is so bad is because the site is new. If you use the HTML5 player it's better. It's also back because Toasty(TSTpro, Towsty, TST, tw03) begged him to put it back up. VidBit came back and it wasn't meant to be serious but he ended up upgrading it. And Jan is the owner, he sold it so he completely remade the site.
@spiderfan @spiderfan First off, if you really need Jan to tell you himself he is in the VidLii community Discord (https://discord.gg/FDjXsM8). Second, Jan is focusing more on functionality than quality. The quality also costs more money and Jan isn't accepting donations at the moment because not many people are on the site. Don't think AM is made of money either, but AM and the VBF staff raised money to make the site as good as possible without funding issues. Jan realized that selling the code was a mistake and called the buyers "scammers" on the discord. Not sure how toasty got him to reboot it, but it wasn't meant to be a serious reboot at first, just a nice little thing that some people wanted and Jan decided to do. Jan did not ditch the community at all and used to be semi-active on the VBF discord (pretty sure you were there). Also, he is constantly talking to the community in the Discord. If you need any proof it is really him, just talk to him about it. Also, if you have any information on http://wenoo.net/user/6666 who has another account on vidlii as https://www.vidlii.com/user/666 PLEASE tell me. Sorry for the long comment, I wanted to explain this as clearly as I could. Sorry for the late reply I've been a little busy today, as in I haven't been home.
@KnotSnappy I don't remember ever seeing him on the VBF discord, but okay. I also thought he sold the code to a friend of his, but I guess I remembered wrong. I didn't think either was made of money, I was just surprised that Vidlii felt inferior to both VB and VBF, when both were supposedly out of the box and modified from there. Guess I was wrong on that. I didn't mean to rip Vidlii in the video, I just mainly had questions. Glad you answered em.
Interesting response. So VidBit is now called VidLii? I am tempted to open up a channel there just to see what happens and then report back. But, as I've mentioned - multiple closings are SUCH a bummer. I've taken a look at it and Brent has opened a channel again. Who knows?
@Lawborn2 Okay. My VidLii channel is up and running. Uploaded two videos already. Playback is a little better than I expected. But, I've no plans of devoting too much time and attention to the the site until I know for certain that it will be active.
Great update here. We decided to give it a try over at Vidlii. We have noticed that they are making improvements and maybe will continue to work on it. We do however, like it here on Wenoo much much better. We don't spend much time over at Vidlii. Originally, we signed up and then decided to delete the channel but there was no where to delete it and then when we went back they had done some improvements on color schemes and able to upload up to 10 min. videos. So we decided to see how it goes as an alternative site. But as far as sites go Wenoo is tops!
