Porn in Winamp 5 TV

Okay, I know everyone likes to watch a little porn every so often so I'm not going to complain about that, but when the newer Winamp TV playlist is absolutely saturated with nothing but porn for people with the wierdest fetishes and dumbest premisses then that's going too far. Yeah you're all saying "just turn the adult ratings off in your options". Well you know what, I dont want to, and I dont want 120 streams, 20 of which are beasteality or midget porn or whatever crap you people are into now. There are some really good stations on there that run good shows or music videos or what not... if you want to see women giving head to a horse then go download of Kazaa, but keep it off winamp, huh, that's not what winamp is for.

i feel the more variety of porn, the better (unless you start talking about illegal material). all the adult swim channels from saltwaterchimp are great, and you couldn't have a more diverse collection of shows.

my problem with porn on winamp tv is it's turning too much like porn everywhere: pop-up ads, misleading descriptions, and crappy/short clips.

if your going to put porn up, at least make it awesome.

ok but just remember that nullsoft isn't in control of the streams, they just provide the software for free.

yeah, i know they don't really have control of what's being streamed...

i'm just remarking that the guys who run those porn streams are jerks.

Some people have fucked up retarded fetishes, but if you don't want to see them, then uncheck X rated streams. Otherwise you'll keep having to scroll past transvestite midget horse porn. Seriously, if you don't want to see porn, why are you still allowing X rated streams? Don't complain if you don't want to solve your problem.

I think it would be responsible for nullsoft to set the parental controls such that the porn is not visible by default.

What we don't want are kids downloading this and then thier parents finding them watching porn on it... parents ask about it and kids say 'it was on winamp'.

afaik, it is.
NC17, X and Non-Rated are unchecked by default on a clean install.

also, it asks you the first time you open the Internet TV listing to make your setting.

well I think that it shouldn't ask, if it didn't lot's of people would be free from unwanted porn.

For those who did want it they could place a button in the internet tv listing to alter these configs to make it easier.

but it's just MHO

They still have to double click the stream to get porn (if it even loads)--they're not getting porn unless they want it.

They've had every opportunity to avoid it. This is a non-issue.

I'd like to meet a mad man who makes it all seem sane
To work out all these troubles and what there is to gain

I seem to remember 5.01 coming out in like 3 days after this complaint arose originally, to address just this issue

First off: That's a lame excuse.
I never use Winamp for pron, and never will. It's a horrible source IMO, not to mention it is a disgrace to what Winamp stands for, even though I disagree with the age-limits on pron -- but that a different discussion i'm not getting into.

Simply: There is nothing Nullsoft can do to prevent these streams other than disabling Internet TV all together. So, why don't we just stop complaining about it?

Edit: There is another option that I just thought of...
There could easily be an addition of password protection for the "parental controls". Meaning, you need a password that is defined during installation to change the settings. This could help a little bit if you people are too concerned with kids getting these streams.

yes, but that would involve parents to actually be parents and know what their children are doing, plus they will have to come up with a password... its just too much work for a parent who was lazy to begin with...

if you dont want your kids watching porn on the internet, you have to sit down with your children while they are on the computer... its just that simple

There is no reset button on life... but the graphics kick ass

maybe if you could ban a station locally like in the menu 'dont show this station' so the next time it loads up, that station wont appear?

i still dont get it though... i mean, its not like one can accidently access the stations... and i wish the parents would punish the kid who is looking at things they know they arent supposed to instead of blaming winamp >_<

If there's porn airing on a TV channel while you're channel-surfing, all you have to do is avoid said channel if you don't want to see the porn, it's as simple as that. In addition, Winamp TV has a configurable ratings system which makes it possible to prevent porn and *******rated streams to show up in the list of streams : all you have to do is check a couple of boxes once to no longer be bothered. My conclusion is that if you can still find a way of bitching about porn streams with all this, you are both lazy and goody-goody.

Cool, it's been awhile... that's the way it should be, I don't think the control has to go any farther than that... nullsoft isn't providing a 'net nanny' type service here... remember it's the internet.

(the Chappell "what if the internet was a real place" skit comes to mind)
