Peekvid Down – another launch?

Looks as though Peekvid is being relaunched – again. It’s down at this moment with an email signup for when the service is relaunched.This is the second relaunch since I first wrote about them back in May.Maybe DailyMotion – the guys in France who hosted all those videos received a warning and in turn smacked Peekvid off their service. But there’s nothing on their blog to indicate that.

Or maybe they’re rewriting the scripts that re-uploaded the videos, or maybe they’ll be back up in 5 days, or maybe they just got tired of doing it….. anyone have any info?

    any chance their site was hijacked and entering email addresses just gives the culprits an idea of who was exploiting the free-vid thing?

  2. shiiiiit i didn’t think of that and i left mine… i’m a retard

  3. shit i left mine too shit god frikin damit oh well they cant tekk anything from your e male adress

  4. ye it went down today for me….bummer…maybe i told one too many people…but it is a glimpse at the future …when we will watch movies …surrounded by adds….on demand- thats what we want

  5. C. Guillermo says

    Neh… I guess it will be back up shorty, its maybe a matter of a few days. I believe they are upgrading the page. Some additional options would be great, like having the poster next to the title, or a link to imdb. Maybe comments or "digg" like feature. I don’t know, the whole idea behind the web page sound very promising. If they don’t do it somebody else will.

  6. Is there another free site us good as Peekvid on the WEB

  7. Peakvid’s Digg-like affect. « mattroberts.com says

    […] 7th, 2007 · No Comments So after I posted on Peekvids demise/onhold status yesterday – check out how my blogs stats went! At least 2000 of those hits are Peekvid […]

  8. Flick Peek looks like a total copy of Peek Vid just bigger player . One problem it does not seem to be working,,, at all, I can’t get anything to download. I have DSL pro too.

  9. My friend works on peekvid, the feds took over the server, dont give your email

  10. Dangermouse says

    Possibility server got taken over as this is taking way too long to upgrade.Don’t get too paranoid but also don’t get too cozy on a site with as much illegal shit as peekvid.

  11. baodawg says

    lets get some more posts here of peekvid-like sites people. I got hooked on 24 and then they took it away. i need my fix!

  12. bubba842 says

    how could the feds take over the server when its a dutch site, feds have no legal authority to touch the server if its not based in the us

  13. damb i hope its back up soon peekvid is the best site on the net and it would be ashame to loose it!!!!

  14. is any other site like it! i need to watch some movies and calm down a bit, flickpeek is crap nothing works on it exept de javu, someone help me there must be another site like it!!

  15. If they did log your email address and you had watched say 30 episodes of family guy.. what can they charge you with? its on tv.. tv is free.. the movies may be a different problem.. but really… i put my email address in there. fuck that. how do they know i watched anything? i could jsut say i heard baotu it and signed up and nothing happened. I also like to drink and drive.

  16. theguy says

    Hahaha, yeah drinkin and drivin rules. Peekvid is fer SUCKERS, let’s get liquored up and gos smash into some shit!Nah, the e-mail thing is nothin to worry about but I sure wish I didn’t have to go back to Bit Torrent

  17. withdrawal symptom says

    flickpeek sucks!almost a copy of peekvid but nothing works!whats happening??!!anyone know any other good sites until peekvid comes on…if it does!?last time another site said they were updating they ended up as a pay site!!dont wanna go back to downloading!! noooo!!!beware the feds!damn them!

  18. leahernandez says

    I prefer the english linkhttp://www.moviefree2.blogspot.com

  19. K i left my email and ive only watched like one movie on ther..cuz i just found out bout the site and like wtf r they gona do with the email adress?

  20. Foxtrck says

    Could tell something was going on when all the players switched to some crap that didnt work. It really was the best site on the net, hope it gets relaunched by the same people with fixes.Probably just Youtube and dailymotion blocking the links to peekvid.

  21. Choda-boy says

    I don’t think they can do anything legaly to visitors to the site.First off, they are all streams, which means that you are not downloading the movies. Second, there is nothing illegal about watching pirated movies. It’s only illegal to copy with intent to distribute.

  22. Choda-boy says

    To add to my previous note:If they were shut down, and the email form is some law enforcement phishing thing, it is most likely to gather evidence against Peekvid about viewership.

  23. Choda-boy says

    Thirdly, Peekvid doesn’t even host the videos. They only host links to other streaming sites like YouTube. So I doubt that they are down for any legal reason much less by some law enforcement agency.

  24. tvlover says

    I email the guys at peekvid to see what the story is and they email this back:thanks for asking. we are working on it hard and fast. the growth in peekvid really outran some of the technology, so we needed to build a new database. and we want to add other sources of material.we hope you added your email online so we can let you know. we will be back very soon!!!

  25. fawcett says

    hey TVLOVER how did you email the peekvid guys…where’d you get they’re email address from? it’s not on the website?

  26. they list their e-mail on the site lol. its not hard to find (peekvid@gmail.???

  27. Chris says

    There is a site I found that just went up and is under development…. its http://www.joltvideo.com they have a bunch of movies, and also alot of south park, still in its early stages though! check it out…

  28. Brian says

    All of the people freaking out about entering there email address on peekvid are idiots. Peekvid IS actually in beta testing. I ‘ve been on the site in its beta version…it’s different but all the videos are still there. So just take a second to calm down before you delete your email account.

  29. So if they are renewing or something does anybody have an idea how long it will take cause i cant wait to get my movies back.

  30. u gotta be shiting me, i gotta watch my fav shows..if peekvid doesnt work wen the new episode some up, im commiting suicuide

  37. Re: peekvid. There is nothing illegal about leaving your email on a website. The person who said the feds took it over is mistaken.

  38. PAPA B says

  39. Jacob says

    next time before you post something, learn how to spell. Maybe this site should stay down so people like you will stop watching movies and go to school and actually learn something

  40. Nemesister says

    The spelling is so bad on some of these posts I can hardly understand them. I used to be a teacher of English as a foreign language and it bugs me to see the English language mangled. What’s so hard about learning to use THERE, THEY’RE, and THEIR? I’ve really enjoyed reading your posts, but some of you come across as real nitwits.

  41. amishosh says

  53. mattroberts says

    Ok, I’m closing comments here. Bad spelling and grammar I can accept (and I’m also guilty of.) But the threats and name calling are beginning to cross the line. I will post on any news I get from the guys @ Peekvid.
