Get the Most Out of the Mini Flash Player

VideoBox Mini Flash Player
You’ve probably noticed that clicking the screen pictures on the DVD page no longer takes you to another page. Instead, an overlay comes up with a couple of new options. When you click “Preview,” a 10 second Flash clip starts playing that will give you an idea of what’s going on at that point in the scene.

We try to pick screen pictures that show all of the actions/positions in the scene. You can pretty much expect:

  • The first one is usually people with their clothes on (or naked if the director didn’t bother with a setup). You can usually get a decent look at the girl in that one, which is helpful for figuring out whether she’s actually hot.
  • The second tends to be a blowjob (porn’s kinda predictable in that way).
  • The third through fifth are usually a couple of the positions from the scene. It’s amazing how much you can tell about a scene in 10 seconds.
  • The last one is always the pop shot unless it’s a lesbian movie. For some reason those seem to usually end with kissing. Go figure.

We hope you’re finding this new feature useful. Feel free to give your thoughts on it in the comments section.

    Working in the porn biz for a long time seems to alleviate the impact of visual overstimulation 😉

    Anyway, the described functionality is very innovative; haven’t seen a feature like that elsewhere.

    Hey Mason (can I call you Mason?), It’s true. At some point, you see a huge spread open vagina on a coworker’s computer screen and you don’t even blink. 🙂
    And thanks. I hope it’s useful for people.

    i think it only depends on what you are used to see on a normal day or on your personal environment.

    here in europe bare female chests, even naked women or kissing lesbians in shoe-store-tv-ads are quite normal…

    in other countries (interestingly those with the biggest porn-industries) i think this could be a problem… (nipplegate)

    but as long Saw-3 is child-suitable because there is no nudity in the movie… 😉 *SCNR*

    can I call you Mason

    That’s the name of my porn incarnation – you’re welcome 🙂

    Yeah, I’ve been digging the previews. I didn’t know the screen shots were hand-picked though – nice to see a personal touch to that. Although I usually download rather then watch with the flash player, the “Start from here” feature is useful for helping decide if a scene is worth it or not – skip right to the “good” part. 😀

    I noticed a new poll up on the side bar – might I suggest a blog post when new polls go up, so that we can comment on our selections, and so final results can be posted when the poll closes? Fake tits are sure to spark a heated discussion 😉

    DucDriver – Each society gets the porn it deserves, I suppose?

    Mason – You know, the movies Mason directed for Elegant Angel are among the most interesting I’ve ever seen…

    Strangepork – I can put the polls in actual posts. I just haven’t yet because…well, I don’t have a good reason. 🙂 Maybe I’ll move that one over.

  7. MasonSquelch Says:

    @alison: Any special recommendation for me? But nothing too extreme, I’m pretty vanilla, you know 😉

    Wouldn’t that be a nice idea: an “editor’s coice” section?

  8. Fooly Says:

    I really like the new preview feature, I’ve used it a lot

  9. DucDriver Says:

    thank god internet has nearly no national borders (yet)… but this is going to be off-topic

  10. tyler Says:

    you guys rock. great new feature! thanks!

  11. alison Says:

    Mason – If you don’t want extreme, I wouldn’t recommend Mason at all, actually. Her whole deal is that she’s sexually submissive herself, so she makes movies with other women who are and really puts them through the ringer. The scenes are usually pretty extreme, but there’s a very interesting difference that you can plainly see between women who enjoy being treated like that and those who don’t. And I’d be happy to do some editor’s choices. I’ll think of some for a future post.

    Fooly – I’m glad to hear that. It’s nice to know that it’s useful.

    DuvDriver – You’re right, and I’m sure we could both go on all day about it…

    tyler – Thanks!

  12. MasonSquelch Says:

    @alison: Okay, I’ll try one of Mason’s movies. But if I’ll get nightmares, you’re to blame for that 😀

    The Flash player is great because I can watch these clips immediately and I don’t have to download everything just to watch it, only to erase it later if I don’t like it. WMP works very slow on my computer so it’s definitely an upgrade. Saves me HD space, too. This is the best site on the net so keep it up!!

  14. MasonSquelch Says:

    @alison: (some hours later) Well – this was indeed a different experience! “Mason’s Dirty Trixxx”: seen and reviewed. Will watch the sequel, soon: there you have me!

  15. alison Says:

    Hey Mason, I think “different” describes Mason quite well 🙂 I’ll definitely check out your review. Lemme know when you have time for #2.

    bxm294 – Thanks! And don’t worry, we’re doing our very best to make sure every single DVD on the site is available for you in Flash.

    Great new feature!!! Thanks for continuing to push the envelope….

  17. VB Says:

    Hi All, Maybe someone can help with a problem I’m having. I have been using the Flash player since its debut without any problems, but, today, the clips are “stuttering”. I’m running Vista and have updated Flash. Thanks! VB

  18. alison Says:

    T. Sinclair – Thanks!

    VB – Are you still having the same problem or was it limited to yesterday? Also, did it occur during the outage?

    – Alison

  19. Jones Says:

    In the last few days I have noticed that when playing movies via the flash player if you click on the pics below the movie to advance to that part, the movie advances to a part ahead of the picture you clicked on. The movie is then out of sync with the pics below it. This is occurring on any pc I view from.

    What scene are the above images from? That girl is super cute.

  22. Val Says:

    alison : sorry I never got back to you – it probably was the outage. I wish I could monitor the blog and get notification of new posts, but, we’re moving to a full-fledged discussion board soon anyway, right? 😉 … Could you make the flash previews a little longer – maybe 15 seconds? Thanks. Val
