Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere- but just read R18.com will be out of business as of next January. Does anyone know of a site that regularly has previews of their movies? I know javlibrary does have some, but I really rely on previews before I download.

javme.net is legit.

The problem is the trailer link is an r18 trailer.

Example SSPD-168 is the top video the trailer link:
https:// awscc3001.r18.com/litevideo/freepv/s/ssp/sspd00168/sspd00168_dmb_w.mp4

Example of a random DMM/Fanza trailer from the front page (JUL-962?):
https:// cc3001.dmm.co.jp/litevideo/freepv/j/jul/jul00962/jul00962_mhb_w.mp4

Do we lose trailers from javme.net when r18 goes down? Answer is likely yes.

I think this thread will be good for suggesting options and alternatives.

R18 did offer unique features:
Decent title translation
Image search to find actresses
Details missing from websites like JAVLibrary like the ability to sort by a specific series

Does anyone have a good alternative that will continue to update when R18 goes? Has anyone scraped R18 for all the data like jacket covers and series names?

Well, if R18 is shutting down, would it be against the rules of this forum to ask if it's possible to strip the DRM from purchased movies so they're still viewable after the closure?

For purchased movies, does it mean we can not even download those in our library and play with their DRM'd player? Will the player become obsolete as well? I have over 100 movies there (grew a lot since getting into VR) would be a damn shame to lose it all.

There looks to be people talking about it in the pinned Discussion about DMM thread a few pages back.

I am actually trying to look for an alternate to r18 as well, I like the preview as well.......I havent found any yet. JavLibrary does have it (not sure when you mention it has for some) for almost all IDs that atleast I tried to look on ,but I actually hate the player in Javlibrary and it seems the player stopped doing fullscreen few months back(still not fixed). So kinda in hunt for r18 alternate perhaps something similar.

I've been using sokmil, they don't have as many studios as R18

Unfortunately yes. They have DRM so without their player, you can't watch or download them.

I thought about ActionJav. What I would really like is a site that lets me download torrents that I can play without having to rely on their player, so I can truly "own" the films I purchase. Disappointing about R18, as they had a lot from my favorite studio, Hunter.

I know people mostly pirate obtain their porn for free, but this is actually kinda sad for me. It was nice having an easy English option to be able to buy JAV, if I couldn't find a good quality version online. I wonder if DMM will make it easier for overseas users to buy stuff from them now.

True, but there were always videos I couldn't find that I would buy cheap during their sales. Or the unlimited VOD streaming service was awesome. I watched so much JAV. I don't know how people can sit and download hard drives full of JAV that they'll probably jack off to once and never again. Streaming the Play Girl and the Mature Channel was honestly the best. I mostly watch porn on my phone, and when I stream movies, it's like my phone gets AIDS from all the pop-ups and shit. I see patterns in AV actress careers after watching all that JAV. RIP R18.

So for what it's worth - I've been using JAV-IT over the last couple of days to download my library from R18 before the closure. I forgot I bought this thing forever ago, when I was first looking for a way to strip the DRM from R18 videos. Never got around to doing it, so if there's one minor upside to R18's closure, it's that it gave me the kick in the ass to get on converting my library.

It's a tedious process going through each video one by one to get the id. Would be simpler if the ID was just the JAV code, but R18 usually sticks some extra numbers here and there so you have to go to each individual stream to make sure. But this thing is like $5, which is nothing to save your library. So if you've got some basic command line skills and any R18 vids you want to keep, I'd recommend buying this little utility and start downloading and backing up.

As R18 will be closed soon and some people probably want to archive their library with a free tool and until now didn't find a way of how to do it, I released newer version of a downloader that was once available as a website. I changed it a bit and now it is a CLI version script. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask me as the time is short. You can analyze source code in files r18_downloader.php and dmm_downloader.php.
