I reckon we all like to see what other guys get up to at home; were all on the lookout for some really hot twink or bear showing off his cock or ass on a home shot video. And, if you've ever tried to use a free tube site only to find it full of pop up adverts and signups and tricky navigation then you'll know how frustrating it is. Well, at 429 Video you only sign up once, the adverts stay where they are put and you have easy access to thousands of amateur home clips, videos and photos.
This membership is actually a network one and when you sign up you are really access the content from 15 advertised sites. Each one has its own theme and each one can be joined separately; though if you do that you still get access to the network, so whether you join Bareback BF Videos, Latino BF Videos, Recorded, Public, Straight, Self shot, Emo, Hot, Hung, Ripped, Twink, Bear or Black BF Videos, you always get to 429 Videos. This is a large collection of homemade porn and you can search it by site (which is like searching by niche really) or simply start at the first page and work your way back through.
It is going to take you a long time to see all this content even if some of the movies are only a minute in length. Others are 45 or more. There were 5,469 videos in the main video area when I was at the site and each one is shown in a sample shot on in index page of 24 movies. There are rollover images here, put your pointer on the pic and see it change, and also rates, titles and number of views. Viewing numbers look good which always suggests that the site has a good membership count always a sign of a secure site. Click the pic for the viewing page.
Now then, you only get two ways to view each clip: a stream and a download. The downloads were Mp4, as were the streams in a JW Player though older content may use Flash. The files were not huge as the resolutions are not great, and that's because this is homemade porn. I found screens at 448 x 336; other resolutions may be in use too, there were also 600 x 600, and Mp4 files at 768 x 432 @ 2,000 kbps, it is all very varied. But the quality is what you expect from amateur porn and there's nothing we can do about that. I found the movies fine to stream and easy to download, not always a large screen and sometimes full screen was not really a viable option, but most of the time there were no complaints from me.
The link to the photos is at the top of the page and this takes you to at least 1,471 image sets. Like the videos these cover all kinds of action: guys posing, guys jerking off, couples in hardcore fucking action and also lots of variety with the guys themselves. I just saw a guy with a huge dick jerking off, before that a redhead twink sitting on his dildo and there are also some cam to cam sessions that someones recorded and posted up. So, the galleries are also varied and some have a few pics while others have 20 or so. All images are scaled to fit the viewer on the page in some way or another and so you get variations in image size, 796 x 1,024, or 796 x 597 for example, and that was in the same set, but they are scaled from their original sizes, so some get a bit distorted. But you can download them at original sizes and in zip files too.
On the whole the quality of the 429 Video content is fine, it is what you expect from amateur self-submit content (and some that look like studio made scenes) and it's not bad at all. There are more or less daily updates and you are able to put the content into various orders on the index pages. It's exactly what you see on the tour and it's mainly 100% amateur.
I mentioned adverts and there are some in the member area but they are not as nasty as some you find on some Free Tube Sites where you get a constant pop-up advertising a chat site you are not interested in. Here you have to click the flashing adverts to get to the unwanted extras. Or maybe you will want them, who knows. The site is easy to use, apart from that, and there are ways to arrange the content, like date order and popularity and there's also a random order function.
You can get slightly involved with rates and comments if you want but I am not sure if you can send in your own content. You do see that some content has been uploaded or sent in by someone other than the site itself and you can click that name to see a profile. You can also make up your own profile and add things to a favourites area.
I had no technical troubles with the site and there was no problem with navigation either. The pages all follow the same format and so do the site areas if you want to view the content from any one site. In this case you might find some shared content, but using the sites does help you filter out black, Latino, EMO etc., otherwise there is just a general search box for key words.
Okay so there look to be some professionally made videos in here, but the bulk of this content probably comes from free tube sites where guys have sent in their own home movies and pics. It's not exclusive but it is a big and hassle free collection. There is a lot of variety, good updates, simple viewing, basic to decent quality and good value to be had with thousands of clips and pics. It's a good place to find some hot amateur home content for a decent price.
