I've just pushed MotionBox 1.1.2 on

It includes an improved interface, a fast startup and wide search bars.
I've also made a few fixes and improvements: check the changelog here.
If you haven't, now is a great time to run your first video browser:

MotionBox is still a young project... So what's next ?

Well, I'm working on a torrent implementation. I'm *quite* close from having something functional.
Also, I want to integrate a video downloader. Just like the one in your web browser but for videos.
This requires a few GUI improvements and even video / audio muxing in some cases.
Interested in keeping track of everything ? Just follow my twitter.

On the contribution side, progress is being made on the linux release.
Actually, I'm about to accept my first pull request. Many thanks to miotatsu and the HMN !

To celebrate, let me share 3 videos I recorded a few weeks ago.



Any feedback ? Questions ?

Just post it down here !


What is MotionBox ?

MotionBox is now on the Handmade network, that's really cool and all... But what *is* MotionBox exactly ?

That's a tough question to answer. Mostly because MotionBox is a true innovation: something unique and new.

It's not like "Google video" nor a "Youtube" desktop application.
In fact I cannot define it with a comparison to what already exists.

It's a Video Browser, a software designed to access and traverse videos on the Internet.
Sounds abstract ? Let me give you analogy: it's a browser that accesses videos directly instead of webpages.

More importantly it's Free Software designed to serve your best interest as a user.
It's not going to spy on you, it's not going to force advertising or a preroll of any kind.
It lets you play video resources directly instead of "being played" through some obscure JavaScript API.

Sounds too good to be true ? Just check the code:

Get your own build right here:

Let me share 3 videos that shows the software at its current state. Maybe it will get a tad clearer that way :-)...
