The new Ninja Video… Re1ease

An equally concerned member of the Ninja Video community alerted and directed me to a new streaming site that offers full television shows and films in high quality.

It’s called Rea1ease, and its interface is very similar to the original Ninja Video, but doesn’t require the beta applet. I was unable to recognize any of the administrators but it’s conceivable by the design, interface and aesthetic that some of the old team is working on this.

Sure to cover any legal implications in the wake of Obama’s recent crackdown on online piracy, the disclaimer reads: only provides links to other sites on the Internet (DivX host sites, Zshare,, and others.) We do not host or upload any video, films, or media files.
Therefore, is not responsible for the accuracy, compliance, copyright, legality, decency, or any other aspect of the content of other linked sites.
If you have any legal issues please contact the appropriate media file owners / host sites as we are unable to forward messages on your behalf.

That sounds good to me, and by writing about this and putting a link to the site exempts me in the same spirit. Happy streaming everybody!


  1. You’re terribly wrong. Their videos are uploaded and no they are NOT the new Ninja Video, and as a matter of fact, have nothing to do with Ninja Video other than ex-members that failed hard. It is NOT “some of the old team” so you should change your title.

  2. Hey y the way, their disclaimer says “We do not host or upload any video, etc.” It says right in the slogan “The Latest Releases…Uploaded” so what does that tell ya? Again, NO AFFILIATION at all with NinjaVideo. So if you truly are a Ninja Video fan, please remove it from your title and don’t compare a site like Re1ease to it.

  3. “An equally concerned member of the Ninja Video community alerted and directed me to a new streaming site that offers full television shows and films in high quality.” Who referred you to them? Before all of this they constantly tried to poach users as well as the founders basically took ninja’s idea and layout and copied it. They just failed so they fell by the wayside…. NinjaVideo has never and will never endorse re1ease. There interface is similar because a few member’s defected to that site thinking it would become something just by imitating the layout. They have been around for a year and you know if your just hearing of them now there are major issues on there site. So please feel free to contact me through my email which is posted and we can clear this obvious mistake up… So if you are a “journalist” please go by just the fact’s. NinjaVideo is in no way shape or from endorsing or associated with re1ease in any way shape or form. And since we let a few of them back onto our boards, yes. You could have just been speaking with one of them…

  4. This is another vulture site from “EX” ninjas looking to capitalize on the recent take down. I would be angry if it wasn’t so pathetic. Anyone that uses this site will soon find that it it inferior in many ways. Including the staff there.

  5. They are not the “new” Ninja. They are the same “old” Re1ease that were stuck in Ninja’s shadow for all of their life. Please get that straight.

    • As this website is a blog and not an official news source, I should say that my language is justly speculative. By “the new Ninja Video” I’m not directly asserting that this was developed by the same team, although, looking at the evidence there has certainly been a design influence one way or the other… In the wake of Ninja Video getting shut down I was merely asserting that Re1ease is the next best thing at the moment. The quality is great, I can actually use all the links, and it’s only going to get better with time as they build up the archives.

  6. Thanks for the mention.
    But as other comments have already advised, Re1ease is in no way connected with the once “” and any of it’s affiliates.

    While the staff at Re1ease agree that the takedown of Ninja is a shame and indeed a shock to the online community,.. that’s all.

    Re1ease has and always will be an ALTERNATIVE,. Should any user come to Re1`ease you will be welcomed, if not. It’s all good.

    I do feel that should also be mentioned here as another more than worth alternative.

  7. It all didn’t help.
    As of now is seized by the feds :@

    Onward to another domain name I guess ^_^
