VidZone Update: Lopez Leads Summer Superstar Stampede

VidZonians, that’s what you are. Whether occasional or fanatical (Hey Sully;)), if you use VidZone you are a Vidzonian. Congratulations!? And what do we have for our loyal followers? We have some HUGE videos for your viewing pleasure, that’s what we have. Whether you “heart” Ne-Yo, The Killers, Yellowcard, Nicki Minaj or even Justin Bieber (don’t judge, we know you’re all secret beliebers) we’ve got something for everyone. Unless you don’t care for music videos, in which case… go read a book?

Artist Of The Week – Jennifer Lopez

JENNIFERLOPEZ

Actress, singer, model, dancer, cheese aficionado, skunk trainer and business woman…Ok a couple of these may not be true, but the (big) bottom line is that the mega-star, Jennifer Lopez, has become (quite literally) a household name across the globe. Here at VidZone Towers we like nothing more than a big summer dance tune to perfect our dancing skills. And Jenny from that block’s newest couldn’t be more well, up our block, because as you probably know, ‘Goin’ In’ featuring US rapper Flo Rida, is already a huge hit thanks to it being featured in this year’s biggest dance movie, Step Up Revolution. Check out her playlist which features her full video catalogue including recent hits like ‘On The Floor’ and older classics such as ‘Love Don’t Cost A Thing’.

Check out below for all the highlights of the next couple of weeks.

WHERE IS CS:GO?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????-????????????

    Fred Dutton 23 August, 2012 @ 11:54 am    

    Hey all. Honestly, I appreciate your frustration about CS:GO. Rest assured you have all been heard. Like I said in the Store thread yesterday, as soon as I have an update for you I will let everyone know immediately. It is my very highest priority. In the meantime, please let’s not spam unrelated threads. It won’t make things move faster.

this is an update for vidzone you understand that right??

 

I don’t even…

RealBOSSoriginal 23 August, 2012 @ 11:31 am   4

I don’t even… care about VidZone…

 

I don’t even… care about VidZone…. because the constant buffering and the grainy quality makes me wanna hurl!?

    Ben Creasey 23 August, 2012 @ 12:25 pm    

    hi funkpower

    If you have a decent internet connection you shouldn’t get any buffering issues. One step to try is to physically connect your ps3 into your router and see if that helps. Sometimes a PS3′s wireless connections can struggle with bandwidth heavy applications like VidZone. If you continue to have issues then email us on ps-problems@vidzone.tv and we can help you some more

 

Any chance we will se a section with vidz in 3D?, would had been awesome! :)

 

Wasnt their supposed to be some exciting news coming or have i just missed it. people that dont care about vidzone obviously dont care about music, i use it all the time with no problems.

    Ben Creasey 23 August, 2012 @ 3:52 pm    

    Hi Voddy0518

    We are working on a few things, nothing that we can announce yet. You will be the first to know when there anything exciting to announce. Glad everything is working for you and that you like the service!

I love VidZone! It’s a very important part of my entertainment choices. Speaking of choices, That is one thing i don’t really have much of in VidZone because i don’t like Pop music. Pop music is for people that don’t care about music (The type that just likes ‘Background Noise’). Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Me, i love music. I’m currently listening to ALOT of Heavy Metal. I guess i’m just thankful that there’s a great amount of Metallica and Manson available but would love to see more; e.g. Five Finger Death Punch, (More of) Rob Zombie, Lamb of God, Stain’d, W.A.S.P., Alice Cooper and so on.

P.s. I know the chances of theses artists getting on VidZone are slim. ;) lol.

    Hi scottysmons

    We do try to get as much content to suit everyone’s taste and we certainly don’t focus on any genre more than another. Unfortunately sometimes it’s harder to get some of those equally awesome but slightly more niche videos. Picking up licensing agreements can be tricky for this type of content but we do have a dedicated team trying to license all videos that our users want/ask for. Sometimes we are able to, sometimes unfortunately we are not.

    We will try our very best!

    Ben Creasey 23 August, 2012 @ 5:59 pm    

    Also… I have just been informed that we may well have some Five Finger Death Punch videos coming very soon! watch this space!

Hi
any plans for vidzone to come to vita? i like it but when im in front of the PS3 I’d rather be gaming. this would be perfect for the vita to watch music videos anywhere around the house
thanks

Does everybody in Europe get the same VidZone content? I was surprised to find Yelle (French artist) via Search a few months ago… but searches for other artists from the same country didn’t produce many results.

    Ben Creasey 23 August, 2012 @ 3:46 pm    

    Hi Fauxtronic

    Not always, each video can be licensed to a different label in every country or to just one label for all countries, or anything in-between. If we have a license with all labels that license a video in all countries then it can go live everywhere, if we don’t then it may only go live in a few countries, sometimes only one. We do try to get all videos in all countries but as you can imagine it can be tricky. Hope that makes sense.

 
fauxtronic 23 August, 2012 @ 5:57 pm   11

Yes, that totally makes sense. Thanks Ben!

 
taurus82 23 August, 2012 @ 7:09 pm   12

Wow… you’ve actually got something I like (The Killers) for a change, keep the ball rolling by getting us some Juno Reactor, Solarstone and Darren Tate (aka Jurgen Vries, DT8 Project and Citizen Caned).

 
Basket21 23 August, 2012 @ 7:34 pm   13

I dont watch vidzone as much as i did.

The volume on the ads is way too loud compared to the videos.

So everytime there’s an ad i need to turn the volume down cause my speakers start cracking.

Plz fix this.

 
Project2insanity 23 August, 2012 @ 11:57 pm   14

Good job on bringing Atreyu and 5FDP to VidZone. I use the service way too irregularly (can be every few days to every few months…) but if bands like that keep coming, I’ll be on more often for certain.

Also giving a shout out to Breed 77! Coming back very soon with a new album! Let’s see ‘em on VidZone! And yes, I have sent a request before anybody calls me a clueless, hyped-up fan (although it may help if someone else does as well… please?).
