[v]Intro promises(3)

Twink Festival offers us over 2,000 scenes and shows us some of the smooth and youthful boys who will be entertaining us inside the members’ area. There are trailers to view on the tube style tour, and plenty of hot images to tempt us further into the site. Play a trailer and you see that you've got two types of streaming quality, plus versions for iPads and DVD quality downloads. The tour also says you’re joining the largest video site on the net, but we will see about that!

Logging in brought me back to where I was, in effect, although now I was logged in and although the pages looked exactly the same as on the tour, I was able to browse the full collection and run the full scenes, and download them too.

What you see on the tour is what you get when you log in, so you will already have seen what’s on offer: a screen to stream the latest movie in, or the one you have chosen, and a set of sample pics to select from, plus related videos suggested for you. Scroll down to find some sport options and then the whole collection of scenes. You can order these by date, tittle and so on, and decide on how many samples you want shown per page. As there is no other area, no galleries or videos area separated out, this home page is the first of your index pages. It would be good if these were numbered as you spend a lot of time clicking through the collection page by page, and then back-buttoning back again. I also had a slight problem with the All Scenes set up – though the best rated, most viewed and HD Scenes collections of samples had forward buttons, the All Scenes didn’t. So I could only see 60 at the most. How to get to the next 60 from the promised 2015? No idea. Very frustrating.

Anyhow; I was able to download the movies and you get some choices here. You have WMV downloads, and two choices for mobile versions, plus the Flash streams in two qualities. I did find that the download speed was on the slow side and that downloading more than one file at a time took ages, so that’s best avoided. The quality was fine on what I saw, but as these scenes come from many different suppliers, the quality may vary. You can select movies by studio by using the search facilities on the main page, and there was a long list of studios represented here.
Talking about the search options: you've got the list of studios to choose from, plus series, and the chance to enter your own keywords, though I tried a keyword and nothing happened. If you use the larger search box and open ‘keywords’ it’s fun to wonder how ‘Pregnant’ or ‘Titty Fuck’ might be appropriate keyword choices on a gay site. Ho hum, someone needs to pay attention to details here.

By this time in checking out Twink Festival, I was starting to get even more frustrated, sorry to say. I’d been downloading one file for around 15 minutes and was waiting for that to happen so I could test another one. I’d streamed part of one movie in the high quality Flash version and this had taken time to buffer due to the download that was going on, and I’d not found a way to check through all of the content other than using the forward and back buttons in the ‘Latest Updates’ list or the ‘HD Scenes’ one. The medium quality Flash stream was no good at full screen and not much better in the 500 x 408 screen it was showing in. (The high quality stream was in the same sized window, and full screen was still not wonderful.) I was also disappointed that there was no information about scenes, no model index, no interactive options and at the site was all very basic and, to be frank, tricky to handle at times. It’s fine for grabbing some scenes, slowly, but it’s not a place I felt comfortable staying in, because there were frustrating elements to it.

And as for being the ‘largest video site on the net’? The answer is no, it’s not.

[v]Conclusion(3.8)

On the up side, Twink Festival gives you lots of movies, they don’t all feature twinks, there are jocks and even some older studs in here, and it’s actually not that satisfying to play with and use. I would like more info, easier search options (that aren’t based on a straight-site template please!) and I’d like a way to easily browse through all the promised scenes. I'm sure you get regular updates though and if you only want to play a movie or download one every now and then, and are not fussed about getting involved or learning about what you’re seeing, then it will suit you fine.
