I have been using this site for quite awhile,have downloaded/watched many movies and have never had one single instance of malware of any kind put on my PC.I have checked many times using several diff.anti-virus tools,but never found a thing.
This is a Very trustworthy site IMO.
The ONLY thing you should NOT do is to download their player.
That IS bad,BUT if you create an account then log in you can download/watch w/o worry.Just make sure you have a current version of Divx installed on your PC.
One more thing,they won't ask for a CC or anything else when you create an account.Everything is FREE.
If you have adblock plus installed on your PC you won't be bothered with pop-ups.
Warning: possible malware.
Many of the comments on this scorecard amount to, "The swamp is safe if you avoid the crocodiles." Don't bet on it, crocodiles tend to multiply.
Do not install any codec from this site. Especially XVID, Also has pop up windows offering to install software which essentially are trojans and rootkit viruses. Poor download times. Good quality movies but need to ensure that you watch via firefox and not install anything from their site. Very malicious if you are not careful.
Claims you must install the V-codec to watch their videos. I think this wasn't always like this. It then proceeds to installs loads of crapware. Won't let you install JUST the V-codec. One of its crapwares is BABYLON Search which hijacks your browser search engine settings, etc. If this happens to you, use IOBIT Uninstaller and do a "Powerful Scan" after the Uninstaller runs. Then delete every item detected in the Registry. BABYLON fails to clean up after itself when you remove it, so this is necessary.
Other than hours of movie enjoyment, I have had no problems with this site during the 3 years of my membership. Since VeeHD does not have its own player and the videos are in mp4 and avi formats, Adobe Flash Player and Divx ("web player' only, preferably the older v. 1.5) must be installed. Never, Ever install any codec package VeeHD prompts you to install.
Many have complained about the codec package (which includes malware) VeeHD requires users to install prior to using the site. ONLY those who have NOT LOGGED-IN will be prompted to install this package. Everyone must log-in at every visit to prevent the codec requirement. Why? I have not a clue. It is also recommended to use Ad Block Plus which eradicates all site ads.
If one chooses to download a video, a video player such as VLC Player or KM Player will be required for playback. Any further assistance can be found at VeeHD forum.
How can a site possibly get so many "I don't trust it" reviews on WOT and end up with such an overall good rating? It makes absolutely no sense.
This site constantly prompts you to download a packet of plugins in order to watch their videos (even if you've just downloaded their latest packet a few weeks earlier). This bundle of completely unnecessary plugins is invariably accompanied with adware and other garbage you absolutely do not want on your computer but which you must download before you can watch videos.
Site prompts visitors to download Codec-C or Codec-V plugin from lp.codecm.com which falsely claims their codecs are required to play video or HD audio. Do not install.
This site requires you to download/install a plug-in ... AND YOU DO NOT WANT TO DO THAT!
In fact, NEVER install software that you do not KNOW is secure. This website does not define or explain their proprietary plug-in so you should avoid it like the plague.
I went there to watch a "free" movie. But now when I start my browser (Firefox), I see it's trying to Download a file called VeeHD_SetUp.com! What!? Do not go to VeeHD, they are trying to install a file AGAINST YOUR WISHES. Go to Amazon or some other site and pay the few dollars to safely watch yer movie or episode of a TV series.
"Download video with Xvid" link redirects via Install.SecureWebSiteAccess.com to ClickPotato.tv, which offers a Hotbar installer disguised as a video downloader.
