Watch Movies Online Free- Top 5 Video Streaming Sites
A majority of devices nowadays including televisions, computers, tablets and games consoles are used to watch movies from different sources such as DVDs or the iTunes store. If you want to save space on your hard drive or access a movie which you cannot locate on a DVD then you can watch movies online free through one of the many video streaming sites that can be found on the Internet. These sites have large databases of movies that you can search for the movie of your choice*. If the movie does not load immediately then you might have to wait a few minutes while the movie “buffers,” however this is a small price to pay for the ability to watch movies online free.
Megashare.info has very short buffering times and a wide selection of movies. Movies are classed into various genres and you can search videos by keyword and title. You also have the option to watch a selection of TV shows on Megashare.info which are classed by the site as “series movies.” In comparison to other movie streaming sites, Megashare.info has no pop-up advertising at this time, which is a welcome relief and with an ever-growing database of quick loading movies, should be one of the first video streaming sites you look at to watch movies online free.
Offering a seemingly slightly larger database than Megashare.info, Viooz.co is another free video streaming site that has thousands of movies available to watch online. Videos are quick-to-load and you can search the database for the movie you want by browsing through the video genres, or typing your desired movie title into the search box at the top of the screen. If there are a few niggles with this site, the biggest is that a pop-up advertis generated pretty much every time that you click on any link on the screen. The pop-ups stop once you start a movie, however it can be tremendously annoying when you are trying to browse the movie title library. Additionally the more recent movies that are still being shown in cinemas and movie theatres have in many cases been filmed illegally with hand-held camcorders and this is reflected in the quality. But for titles not so close, to the release date the video stream quality is good and fast.
Video streaming links library Solar Movie contains a selection of streaming links from different sites for a database of thousands of movies. Once you have found the movie title that you are looking for via search or browsing through the library, you will be shown a list of streaming links for the movie and ratings of video quality and whether the stream is Flash-based or DivX. There are a few pop-up adverts in the site but way less than Viooz and rather than redirect you to the streaming site it streams the selected movie onto Solar Movie meaning that there are way fewer redirects for you to navigate.
Formerly known as 1channel.ch, Vodly is a massive stream library for thousands of films and TV shows. You can search the database by title or browse through the movie genres to find your desired film. Once you have located the movie, Vodly displays a list of streaming links which will redirect you to watch the movie on a different video streaming site. Unfortunately as goes paying the price, there are many pop-up advertising windows that appear when you click on various links but Vodly remains a good source to watch movies online free.
Movie4K is a video streaming library offering video links to films, animations and TV shows. It also provides access to adult content which you are given the option to hide. Additionally you might want to provide parental controls to your browser and the website before using it. You can browse movies by genre or using the search tool and video streams are displayed for a selected movie with quality indicators and file-type of stream. Like Viooz you can get streams of the latest cinema movies however the quality is very poor due to the majority of these being illegally-filmed with a camcorder. However for less recent movies the quality is much improved.
