How do I turn on/off closed captions?
If closed captions are available for a specific movie, the closed captions icon will appear on our player. You just need to click on the icon to toggle on or off closed captions.
If you saw closed captions for a specific movie but there is no closed captions icon, that means the closed captions are hard coded into the movie and there is no way to turn it off.

The movies do not play on my PS3.
Only Server 1 support PS3 playback at this time, provided the movies have not been deleted.

How do I watch movies in HD?
If the movies are available in HD, you will be able to choose the quality of the movie. A HD icon will appear in our HTML5 player. For our flash player, a quality selector will appear instead.
Note: Only Server 1 will have this option. Server 2, Server 3 and Server 4 do not support HD.

I see Server 1/Server 2/Server 3/Server 4. Do you have any recommendations on which server to use?
We recommend Server 1 as it is the fastest with no buffering issues. The downside is, the movies on this server got deleted very fast and thus the movies on this server is limited.
Next, we recommend Server 4. This server is quite fast with no buffering issues. The downside is, movies on this server is limited as this server is newly discovered on the internet.
Next, we recommend Server 3. This server is from europe. Depending on your location, you may have buffering issues.
Lastly is Server 2. We always have buffering issues with this server. We highly advice to pause the player after clicking play to let the player buffers for a few minutes before clicking play again.
