What I meant was that to provide support to the creators, the minimum would be to display their names
MotionBox is already displaying the author / channel name at various places. Including on the track cover and the preview panel (when you hover a track thumbnail). That's also useful for browsing the playlist of a given track.
Descriptions also provide context or additional informations about the videos or the subjects discussed. If I need to leave the program to see them, it makes MotionBox less useful.
Yeah, but the whole point of video browsing is focusing on video content itself. If I'm interested in reading a cool paragraph I already have a web browser.
Compensating authors for their work is a different story. My view on that is having a like button that sends a few cents to the author. That brings a technical challenge of coming up with a system that could do that no matter where the video is hosted. That also raises a deeper questions about video makers being driven by advertisement or compensated for the real *value* they produce.
