Videostreaming BETA

How does the video streaming work and when will be my credit charged?

Your credit will be charged after loading 25% of the data amount of the video file. After your credit has been charged, you can watch and download the video as often as you like for the next 24 hours with no further charge.
When streaming a video you will be charged for the size of the entire file the same way as when downloading it.

For example, you can watch approximately the first 5 minutes of a 100 minutes long video for free to check if it's the video, you were looking for, before your credit will be charged.
In case of a 25 minutes long video you will only have around 1 minute. The free streaming time depends on the video quality and the speed of your internet connection.
(Note: While you are watching a video, your browser is loading data ahead, it is buffering data, and we measure the amount of transmitted data, not the time you are watching.)

Specifically: your credit is charged after passing through 25%, 50%, 75% or 95% of the file's size.

Why can't I see the streaming option on all video files? Is it not available for all file types?

Video streaming is available only to registered users with sufficient credit.

Only some types of MP4 files support streaming.

Passwords are used to lock files. Only the file owner, who entered the password during file upload, knows it. If the file doesn't have any option to send a message to the uploader, he probably doesn't the file to be published. In this case, there is no possibility to obtain the password.

The file size is in reality smaller than you stated. The file isn't downloaded to the end. Would you why?

It is possible the data weren't recorded properly. There is usually a different  cause for the different data size of the file on Ulož.to and on your disc. The stated size of uploaded file is informative only and it is based on a simple conversion (1 GB = 1 000 MB), while your computer uses more accurate conversion (1 GiB = 1 024 MiB) and shows exact data size.

"What is your Internet connection? Please do a speed test on and send us a link to the page with the measurement results.
Have you experienced any problems with slow downloads on more files or just on this one? Can you eventually send us the link to the slowly downloading file?"

Free download is slow. Where is the promised 300 kB/s?

Stated speed 300 kB/s is the maximum possible, but is not guaranteed. Free downloading speed can be limited according to the actual workload of particular servers. There is no such restriction for downloading via VIP account and recharged credit.

Yes, if you have an account with VIP credit. The command is:

--connect curl-timeout 60 O L --basic --user username:password '!abcdefg/'

You just need to change accountname and password to your account info and the requested link.


For how long is my credit valid?

Usually, bought credit is valid for 2 years. The same applies to credit claimed from coupons. Credit gained from the Uploader program expires also after 2 years and our loyalty program CreditBack gives you credit valid for 6 months. Credit aquired from various marketing offers can have a different validity. It always depends on that particular offer.
We will let you know a few weeks before your credit expires so you still have time to use it.

Can the validity of my credit be extended?

No, there is no way of extending validity or avoiding expiration of your credit. We strongly advise to use your credit. Every credit gain has it's own expiration date that cannot be extended even if you buy some more credit. Check out Credit gains for further details about your credit.

I can't find a file that I have already found in the past. Why?

The content of public data storage is made up of data shared by particular users. Only these users decide what to share and for how long.
The reason why you didn't find the file you've already found in the past might be one of the following:
1) Data were deleted by the user who uploaded them, or he could set that particular file as private.
2) The user has set that file for temporary sharing only and the time for which it should be available has expired.
3) The file was deleted because of violation of ulož.to conditions (eg. Pornographic material that is in breach of the laws of the Czech Republic, material infringing the copyright reported by entitled owner, not allowed advertising, etc...). Our company interferes only in the case we get the arguable knowledge of the general Ulož.to conditions infringement.
