4 Hor Lover! I've used my Google drive for all kinds of things, but downloading porn? I'm not so sure about that. It's not like it makes a difference from where you get your porn, but it's just weird getting it from a place that's made from everything but porn!
Since I made it clear, let's just say that 4horlover.com is an Asian gay porn site with only videos available for downloading, but if you want to watch them online, they will redirect you to another place where you might be able to watch them. I'm not a big fan of this type of site because most people prefer watching porn directly on the site. It's much quicker and more convenient, but downloading videos has some advantages. Usually, you get them in higher resolution, so if that's your thing, you'll like it here.
The size of their collection is impressive, considering they have everything on Google drive, but compared to other porn sites, a collection of 80k videos is nothing special. Don't get me wrong, this will be more than enough to keep you busy for a while, but I've seen sites with over a million scenes, so you see where I'm going with this, right?
No sorting options
I just had a feeling that something would be missing. They might have a big video collection, but it's kind of hard to find something if you don't know exactly what to look for. There are no categories, meaning you will have to look at all videos above the other one. You could make things easier and look at videos from a particular month, but that still doesn't bring you a group of videos that please you the most.
Since they let you know how many videos are added each month, you can see that the number of monthly uploads varies between 200 and 300 videos, which is quite alright. If you somehow run out of things to watch, you will find around ten videos every day.
Even though there's a basic search, I'm not so sure how much it will help you. It seems like this search feature helps you find specific titles because there's nothing else to look for. You can give it a go and look for common keywords, but I'm not sure about the results you will get. If that keyword is in the title, you will get a result, but if there's nothing that matches your search parameters, you know what's going to happen.
Backup download options
It's nice of them to provide us with backup options if the main one fails. I'm not sure what needs to happen for Google drive to stop working, but if that happens, you can get the other option.
If I were you, I'd give the streaming option a shot, but I'm not sure if you'll like the process you have to go through to watch them. At first, I didn't even realize that you could watch them on the site. They have actually three different players, so I'm guessing you'll find one that works, but what the fuck is up with that verification process?
If you choose to watch a video online, you first have to click on that play button like a fucking idiot. Every time you click on it, you get some popup ad or the site refreshes. I don't know who thought it would be a good idea to do something like that, but I'm telling you that it's the worst fucking thing that can happen on a porn site. Once you get through the wall of ads, you will get a chance to watch the video, but not before you verify that you're a human. Yup, that's right; you have to complete some puzzles and only then get to watch the video.
This just sounds like an extremely unnecessary step, but I'm guessing they did that for a reason. I had enough patience to finish this bullshit process, but someone who's a bit impatient might turn around and forget about this place right away! I'd recommend getting rid of those shitty steps and letting people watch gay porn right away instead of making them work for it!
The resolution is pretty high
Anyone who wants 4K videos should think about downloading them. It's well-known that online videos tend to be in lower resolution because they take up much less space. Sure, some sites offer 4K videos for streaming, but mostly those sites are premium. Since we don't want to waste money, this is the next best option. It might take a little more time to get a video that seems exciting, but I think it will be worth the wait.
Even though they don't tell you the resolution of a video, you can guess it based on the file size. Files that are over 2GB are either way too long or just look fucking fantastic. Either way, you won't regret getting them, but the most challenging part will be to get to the stuff you like the most.
I would like to know how they planned on helping people find what they want. Let's just say you're into interracial gay videos. If you try looking up interracial videos, you will get zero results. Not that makes no fucking sense. Interracial videos are quite common among the vast majority, so if you can't find something many people enjoy watching, you can forget about finding some fetish. You can find pretty much anything, but you'll have to keep clicking on the next page until you find something interesting.
Take a look at their thumbnail pictures. They look like something Asian people would make. Instead of showing you the image that best represents the video, the picture looks like something you used to see on cassette tapes. Do you remember those old tapes that had cover cases with many images and even more text? Well, that's precisely what these thumbnail pictures look like. I'm not telling them how to do their job, but it would be better to put the best picture from the video as a thumbnail picture instead of that shit. You don't even know what's happening in there because the text covers many important things!
You might think that the preview is a short video that will clear things up, but no. This is one big picture made out of many smaller screenshots from the scene. Sure, this will give you an idea of what's happening there, but I would prefer to watch a video that gives you more information. Since there's the time stamp in the bottom right corner, I figured out that some of these videos go on for more than two hours. I don't know what you think, but that sounds like a lot for one scene to me!
Oh yeah, some videos come in multiple parts. I'm guessing that uploading that one huge file wasn't as easy as they expected, so they decided to divide it into a couple of smaller parts, or that big video is actually a compilation of a few videos, so they uploaded them separately. Of course, there's a file that shows you all those scenes together, so you pick the one that seems better.
Downloads are okay, but streaming requires verification
I always knew that free porn sites had some problems. This one has a big problem with popup ads, and you can't get rid of them. The site doesn't work if you have the Ad Block, and if you disable this addon, you will keep getting a shit ton of annoying ads every other minute. That's nothing new, but it's just fucking irritating. If I decide to watch porn, I don't want to be interrupted every minute.
They should work on their search features. Even though this is an Asian gay site, there should be some sorting options or filters to narrow the search down a bit. Their collection of 80k videos has all kinds of crap, and knowing Asian people, they definitely have some fucked up stuff. The thing that bothers me the most is that their search engine is pointless. You can look for keywords in the titles, but that won't help you out a lot. It would be better if there were tags, but that's not going to happen anytime soon.
The quality is quite alright, but it seems like the resolution is higher for downloaded videos. If you want to watch a video right away, you can do so on some other site that you get redirected to, but you'll have to complete some annoying verification first. It is easy, but it's a pain in the ass process. On the other hand, downloading videos is easy. You just have to click on one thing, and you're done, but wouldn't you agree that downloading Asian gay porn from Google drive is weird?
