As you may all be aware, with the shut down of Megaupload, filehosting companies are protecting themselves by deleting content, restricting the uploads of any new files and even restricting the downloading of files from anyone within the U.S.A.
We have been primarily using Fileserve, Uploadstation, Videozer and Videobb. Unfortunately, these sites are all owned by the same company and our files are slowly being deleted. Until we can find alternatives we only have the files on these sites available for you.
For those that still haven't downloaded what they want, I would suggest doing so before the files are deleted or my accounts are suspended.
Another problem which has arisen from the MU shut down is our ability to obtain clean raw files for subbing. Hand and many other contributors over on the Gaki Fan Page have been great at uploading 100's of quality raw files, however most of these files were being hosted on MU, this leaves us with little to no access to raw files. This isn't a problem now, but I foresee it becoming one in the future.
We are currently looking at Mediafire as an alternative for our hosting, but the drawbacks are the slow uploads, limited file size and bandwidth limits. Although, MF states that they have unlimited bandwidth, we have seen situations where due to the volume of downloads, MF shuts down the links.
The second alternative would be a paid hosting service. I really would not want to go this route as the bandwidth would be too expensive for us to maintain as this is a free site. Although we do receive some revenue from downloads and a few donations, it will not be enough to cover this expense.
Video hosting alternative would most likely be Daily Motion, the drawbacks are that upload time is very slow and I have problems using the service, which is why I avoid it. Veoh is an option, but I have already had my account deleted from there and the site not available for viewing in many countries. Putlocker will remain, as it still hasn't been affected by the MU situation, but if something changes I will let everyone know. Videozer and Videobb are not being considered at this time as files are not being processed even after uploading to those sites.
In the next coming weeks we will probably be testing several hosting sites and would appreciate input, good or bad for each host.
I'm not sure about the future of the filesharing scene after this turn of events, but we will try to figure out a way to keep this site up and running with new content for everyone. Thank you everyone for your patience and continued support. - Zurui
