honestly i haven't had any problems with this site i found it quite good for a free site the only issue was it did pause at the start but it got better like after a 4-5 minutes into the movie.

I'd been looking for something to replace for a long time, and this works smoother ( would always have login issues, whereas you don't even need to login for this), it looks better (better aesthetics tenfold than the stupid black and orange), and there isn't any of that weird lag would have. It's straight up a thousand times better. All the permissions it requires have a reason and it makes sense. Fully recommend using Metastream.
