Do you delete or rewatch old JAV collection?

    I keep most movies I download. First, because I watch the movie trailer before so I'm 90% sure I will like the movie. Next, it's movies from the actresses I follow, so I keep them to rewatch them later (and also because JAV movies tend to be difficult to find few months after their release, no seed on torrent and dead ddl links).

    I keep the ones I fap to the most. Some I just fap once or twice then it gets deleted.

    Agree with you some jav just simply hard to find after some times.

    I keep the really good ones, especially if they feature favorite idols. Some I've been watching for over a decade.

    Yup I keep the ones from my favourite actresses and others which have great scenes. Also the rare JAV's that are hard to find as mentoned before, i'll keep.

    I keep almost all that I collect. But I collect not that many vids. Sometimes I go back to watch an oldie. Often the old favs give me a much harder hard-on than the new ones.

    On the other hand, it so hurt my eyes to look at the old SD and sub-SD vids. Hard to believe some of my best fappilious vids was 320x240. So actually I often take a quick look at the old favs to remind myself the story and hotties. Then instead of watching the crappy lo-res vids, I close my eyes and "upgrade" the vid in my own head. LOLZ

    I do this too, sorta, but I replace the actress with whatever Gravure/Celebrity I feel like fapping to, then I shoot it all over their face.

    I hoard JAV until I no longer can save anything. When I reach that point, I start scavenging and choosing what to purge. When it becomes really difficult to purge anything, it's time to buy more storage lol. So yeah, I rewatch them. Sometimes I like to just shuffle my library and see what feels the best ATM. I also occasionally upload some of my favorite videos privately on YouTube so I can watch them anywhere.

    I download video without watermark only. Around 100 SD files taking up around 160GB at one time (all SD files, mostly converted from HD files; HD files are backed up on external drive). Downloading new vids means purging old vids. Because computer is for more than just porn, right? And there's only so much time and only so much one's body can handle. There's no point keeping every single video. Some videos are worth keeping, some are not.

    Interesting idea.

    I have external drives of everything including JAV and IV. Occasionally if I feel like I'm getting close to my limit of space on my drives JAV is the first thing that gets cut and I'll quickly go through and delete some stuff.

    I think I probably have a hoarding problem. I tend to download TV shows I like even if I have access to them via streaming. It's silly but yeah, I always seem to have this fear if I don't buy it or download it then it will disappear and I will not be able to get it when I want it.

    My JAV collection isn't as large as many of the other people I've seen post rough estimates... my big space killers are TV shows and movies (like say the 10 seasons of Stargate SG1 or the 9 seasons of Scrubs).

    I keep them just for the art value (;)) , it looks like this is costing me some dear dough, went from a 1 TB , now I am up to an 8 TB storage...and I am running out of storage already.

    Is it okay to upload it to youtube??

    My collection is not that big only around 300gb but most of them are decent low quality. I noticed that most of the lower quality video are encoded poorly. like one of the video is 1.7gb with 500p resolution what make it big is that the bitrate is 58mbps. So i reencode the video with the right bitrate i get 700mb with the same quality. So ia start to group the video based on the reaolution and found out what is the right bitrate. Tgat way i can make more space without removing any video.

    If you keep the videos private, yes. Just use a different account to upload that stuff, because there is risk involved. If youtube decides to start using an algorithm to find porn stashed in their servers, you might lose your youtube access.

    Of course. Otherwise I would not have 106TB of stuff!

    It would be great to come up with a formula for bitrate. Not that I have one... My baseline is Thzla's average. FHD = 1090 x 1080 x 29.97 fps -> 4000 kbps. Higher bitrate (say 6000 kbps, typical 168x.me) sometimes give a slightly better result, but for 50% bigger file, the delta is somewhere between 0 to 10%. AKA diminishing return. My rule of thumb is: if it's a good vid, archive it on a backup, only re-encode for daily (?) use if the source file is ridiculously large (like 8000 kbps). If it's only a so-so vid, either delete or archive, and forget about re-encoding, not worth my time. I have enough vids for daily use anyway.

    Anyway... once in a while there's a justification to re-encode, especially uncensored vids (Caribbean) and I found most US porn scenes are very fat (12000+ kbps). So when re-encode and/or downsample I sometimes go to 720p (with FHD in archive, I am satisfied with 720p quality on my 40" bedroom TV for daily fapping) or when I get really silly I reencode some scenes to 960x540 (1/4 of 1080p) or 800x450. I found that the bitrate for a decent quality is non-linear. Say encode FHD at 4000kbps, then if you do 1/4 of FHD (960x540) at 1000 kbps, the result is CRAP. Well most common I encode to 720p, which is 44.4% of FHD, and I use 2800 kbps which is 70% of FHD bitrate. That is, I give up 56% of pixels but the saving in file size is only 30%. That's why I mostly don't do it.

    For some Caribbean releases, both (fat!) 1080p and 720p available. I download both and put the 1080p ver in archive and just watch the 720p (and perhaps delete it afterward).

    Holy cow 106 Terabyte! how long would it take you find something? like half a day? Just tell me, I know there is no such a thing one single drive of 106 TB, are you using your bank sever which most likely sports a disc array that can bring the 106 TB. Am I correct? another thing, did you ever get the chance to view all of the 106TB adult movies? lemme see, lets say an average of 2GB each devising 106000 GB/2GB that's 53000 flick each flick is lets average 2hrs, 53000x2hrs= 106000 hrs or 4427 days which is over 12 years. And that's if you watch non stop the 53000 flick, obviously you have natural needs to accommodate some time. Dude maybe you meant 106 G byte.

    I only delete a video if I can find a better version, which means its quality is better. However, from 2009, I started getting videos from the source (official online shops of vendors or studios) instead of the ones uploaded by random guys on the Internet, so I don't need to waste time on finding better versions, unless they were SD and the HD ones were published later.

    In order to hoard hundreds of terabytes, I purchased a lot of Synology NAS and tons of hard disk drives installed on them. And I also tried cloud storage solutions, but it's really painful because such service providers were died one after another. Fortunately, Google G Suite becomes the final economical solution. 5 x 10 USD/month can allow us to store unlimited data. Therefore, I finally have a local copy on NAS and a backup on Google Drive.
