There’s been a lot of exciting stuff going on behind the scenes here at Whitelines HQ. Like an army of Steve Jobs’ minions we’ve been working hard to make the website faster, cleaner and introduce more features. A few weeks back you may have noticed that the website had a small update and hopefully you’re finding it loads faster and smoother as a result. The great news is that we have way more in the pipeline but it’s all top secret stuff. If we told you we would have to kill you.
Saying that, we are pleased to reveal our brand new in-house Mpora player which, even in its beta phase, is already a shit-ton better than the old one.
Of course you’ve still got the standard ‘like’ button, embed button, fullscreen button, volume slider and play/pause button. But on top of that we’ve also added a 3-second rewind button (perfect for watching that mindblowing rail combo again, and again, and again) as well as a Slo-Mo button, that you can combine with the 3-second rewind, for even more in-depth trick ogling. The new HD button switches the video to crystal clear high definition (if available) instantly, no quibbles. For those of you on Chrome or Safari, a screenshot button appears when you pause a video which get’s rid of all the other buttons so you can snap away to your heart’s content and you can move frame by frame with the arrow keys to get to the best part of the video. And that pretty much covers it!
You can test out all the new features in the video below, which since we posted it as a pisstake of our antipodean cousins, has become one of our most watched videos. Can’t think why…
We hope you dig the new player and as always, we’re keen to hear your feedback so if you run into any teething problems, hit the ‘give feedback’ link under the video or drop us a comment. Happy viewing!
