Typical, no sooner do I come across this useful search engine (thanks to a mention here) than they shut up shop.  Any other similar search engines for movies out there?

Alluc was a fantastic search engine , I used it all the time when I needed to. Mad to see it done the same day some  ISP's in Canada decide to announce outrageous service increases. What a day.

That's right. There is no other streaming link search engine out there at the moment that is even close to being as good as  Alluc was. I don't even think there are any to compare it to FFS So says basically everyone so far over at the reddit piracy thread about this.

DAMNIT!!

That pisses me off. I used them all the time to find 1080p's mostly since some uploaders here seem to have a habit of using the 1080p tag and only have 720p links. I also used them to find my 720p versions of my tv shows when some people forget about posting links.

 

Hopefully someone will come up with another site we can use for these things.  ARGH!

The framework lives on.........

From alluc:

The alluc search engine has been discontinued.

After 13 years of alluc, we decided to take a break and focus on other projects.
Over this last decade alluc served more than one billion unique users in total and we would like to thank all of you for your support over the years.

The search engine framework we created from scratch for alluc lives on with the guys over at pron.tv, the biggest porn search engine in existence!

PS:
Any other sites using alluc in their name are not run by us.

Streaming Link Search Engine Alluc Shuts Down

By Ernesto

3-4 minutes

After 13 years, the popular streaming link search engine Alluc is shutting down. The people behind the site, which was regularly used by pirates, say they will focus on other projects instead. The team still see a future for "uncensored search" and hope someone else will fill the gap the site leaves behind.

With 80 million streaming links to more than 700 video services, Alluc sold itself as the premier streaming link site.

It offered a wide variety of content and over the past thirteen years it grew out to become one of the largest sites of its kind. This week, however, Alluc surprised friend and foe by shutting down.

“The alluc search engine has been discontinued. After 13 years of alluc, we decided to take a break and focus on other projects,” a message posted on the site’s homepage reads.

That the site was popular is not a secret. People used it to find streaming links to nearly everything, from old movies to the latest hit series. The operators mention that they served a billion unique visitors over the past decade, which is an incredible achievement.

Alluc says farewell

What’s less clear, however, is why the site decided to stop now. In the past, we’ve reported on similar sites that threw in the towel because revenue was dwindling, but Alluc told us that is not the case here.

“The decision was not driven by monetary reasons. We started alluc when we were still in high-school and it became into something bigger and better than we could have ever imagined when we started it,” Alluc’s Sebastian tells us.

“But now it’s time for us to move on. We hope to have contributed a lot to the video space and to have helped out a lot of people during these 13 years of running alluc full time.”

While Alluc could be used to find both authorized and unauthorized content, the movie industry saw it as a blatant pirate site. This resulted in a site blocking request in Australia, among other things.

Alluc, however, always rejected the ‘pirate’ label and saw itself as an “uncensored” search engine. While they are shutting down now, they still see a future for similar services.

“There will always be a future for uncensored search and I hope us shutting down alluc can help to create the vacuum needed to incentivize new sites of similar quality and scope or even a decentralized solution to be created by others,” Sebastian tells us.

Time will tell whether another site will indeed jump in to fill the gap.

Alluc’s API, which is used by third-party apps and services to find streaming links, will remain available until the end of the month when it will shut down. Meanwhile, Alluc’s search engine framework lives on at pron.tv, an adult-themed site.

such a shame, but hey not to worry, we have some of the best link hunters on the web here at DF, request what you would like and will do our best to find it for you :)

 

 

 

this is also a good altenative to alluc, use the imdb listing to find your movie, the onlu drawback is everything is enbeded, the upside is everything is on openload  :)

Thanks for trying. While they are good for finding something if I can't find it anywhere, what I need is one just like Alluc that lets me find multiples to choose from so I can find replacements for ones I can find that are in 720p for shows and 1080p for movies.  That place doesn't seem to have a way to do that and also doesn't have a search box. You have to manually customize each url.    (sigh) I guess I'll just have to be satisfied with waiting for things here and having to make requests and wait for someone to help. Thanks for trying though.

A recent third party posting has motivated closure of this discussion.

 

While it certainly does suck that Alluc is gone, perhaps some other enterprising group will produce a similar product.  One can only hope.
