    I'm a millennial who enjoys watching short videos on his phone. I did that when I took public transports daily prior to forced teleworking. I still do this in my bed before sleeping or when I don't get up as soon as I wake up. (Sorry guy from @Some More News, but you were totally off the mark in your rant about that part of the formula.) So, I could have been a Quibi user if I didn't discover that yesterday while watching videos about its failure. However, the pricing would have been a big no for me. Paying for a streaming service and having ads? Really? On the Internet, you pay or you get ads, not both. Also, the without-ad price sounds too high for short content, even if this is way more produced than IDdown content. It would have work for me if it had been integrated into another streaming service. It would have been the "quibi" section on Netflix, Amazon Prime or local service. The turnstyle technology would have been a specificity of that section, not the flagship of a whole service. Within the years, they would have found a nice use of that turnstyle thing or simply drop off. I think Quibi as a stand-alone service was a lethal mistake. Being part of something bigger and already established would have given them the leeway to experiment and take their time to craft some stuff. Another obvious problem is how much all of that was forced. That's like the Google+ of streaming services, but worse since they put so much money in that. Speaking of money. That was a really bad idea to take nearly 2 billion dollars to target only one generation of viewers. They should have gone generalistic. My father would have been a perfect viewer for that remake of The Fugitive series. He grew up with that show and enjoyed the 90's move with Harrison Ford. He would have liked to watch that on his laptop before going to bed. But as you pointed out, @Computer Clan, laptop ≠ turnstyle technology. That's what happens when you force too much something and put crippling constraints on it.

Um, shouldn't we see if anybody cares first? No, we have a big concept, they will have to care!

    I was wondering why I stopped hearing about it. It didn't explain at all what it was in the ads and it would be a good alternative to this platform but you'd have to have people move there or out stuff there too, and tho it is nice to have short videos, esp. when this launched, the whole world had time on their hands and were losing income...

    The entire concept of Quibi just... doesn't work. Initially i thought, "Oh it's a failed streaming service. Probably they didn't advertise enough because i didn't even know about it." But then, it's a mobile-exclusive, short 10-minute content based streaming service and I already knew why it failed. Most of the time if you want 10 minutes worth of content, guess what? IDdown. 10 minutes is *not* the right amount to put quality content in it. Most shows that I like are either a novel/manga adaptation or a very long running huge and connecting series like what Marvel did, and I'm sure there's a lot of people who have the same idea as I did. Quibi failed because they fail to see what phones are to most of the people. It's not a shrinked TV. It's not a shrinked gaming PC (although some people do consider them). It's more of a quick and simple, communication and social device. People only watch IDdown and use Spotify there. The flip thing is redundant, because who ever actually flip their phones if you're watching something, and the fact that it's mobile-exclusive just really pushes a lot of the potential users that would've watched in a TV or PC/Laptop. I'll say it once and I'll say it again, mobile-exclusive anything will barely work except if it's a social media or a communication platform. You will, however get something from mobile-exclusive apps but, most of your users will be in places where people uses their phones a lot like China, India, or Southeast Asia. I live in Southeast Asia and I have never seen a single ad about Quibi.

    Really you can’t take screenshots in Netflix, Hulu, etc, I’m gonna have to check that out; it works in IDdown. I remember trying to get a screen capture of a frame of a DVD in Apple DVD player so I could look up what I was seeing because it looked interesting in the end it’s pointless to block screen capture. To get around that it was just a matter of using a different screenshot Utility shocker or better yet VLC has it built right in, Or just do what the normal do take a phone and take a picture of the screen but you can’t do that if you’re using a phone to be a .... never mind. Now I know there was one proof of concept of somebody using screenshots to capture every frame of a movie but that’s not what the actual Pirates are doing, it’s all about supply and demand if you make supply hard to access you increase the demand for the black market. So let’s all have our own different apps and subscription plans.....

    Quibi failed because the heads had unrealistic expectations. Everything was fine with the whole concept. But they expected it to be an instant hit. No streaming service has ever been an instant hit in the first year. They should have budgeted for it to last at least 2 years without folding. That, or it was a huge investment scam to say “hey, at least I tried... right guys?”.

    100% would have used this, if you were able to connect it to another device like a computer or smart tv, and when rotating your phone, what didn't appear on the phone appeared on the tv, so it would be like you're watching a movie, and you can check your phone to see what the guy is doing on his phone

    I would say it is an interesting idea but at the end of the day the multiple angle thing is a gimmick no one would really use because when you want to be watching videos you don't want to be doing work holding and rotating your phone. Much like how the controls on WiiUs ZombieU was an interesting fun gimmick at the end of the day it is just that, a gimmick something people think is cool but don't want to bother with outside of screwing around for a few hours.

    This is such a bad idea, not only it's not "organic" and with content shown according to personal preference like TikTok, it only works with a subscription (which is not bad on itself, but for example, with Netflix you know it has an "X" amount of movies and series that you already liked. But now paying to then know if you like the content is terrible. And, btw, I almost never skip any Computer Clan videos, but I originally skipped this one just because the "Quibi" name is the most uninteresting name I've ever seen (I just came here to watch this after I heard about it in the No Cameras Allowed podcast).

    Samuel Taylor2 bulan yang lalu

    I didn’t know much about Quibi. I saw the ads on IDdown, got the idea that it was just another streaming service, but I hated the ads. They were annoying, much like any other IDdown ad. “I’m trying to watch the video I chose, why is there an annoying random video in my face?” The ones that count down to a skip button or the 5 second ads aren’t as bad, but still. It’s like popup ads that are either near impossible to find the close button for or that never leave, or the ones that keep coming back. It’s a shame, because some of the shows seemed interesting, but to hear about the app being focused on short clips of tv episodes or clip after clip of movies, that’s just strange. It’s annoying enough that I can’t just sit down and watch a whole story of a tv series, rather than having it broken into episodic bites. Although, sitting down for 2 or 3 hours in one thing, I wouldn’t want to be sitting and watching a movie for 100 hours straight, non stop. Maybe the episodic approach is best for longer stories that need the time to flesh out the characters and plot. The turnstile approach is a strange one. It sounds frustrating and annoying. Either watching the story or whatever else the episode has attached. Why not do that in the editing. Widescreen is a thing. Why not give us the POV of the phone on the side of the screen next to the rest of the shot when it’s relevant. The different camera angle idea is interesting though. Having the shot dynamically change with the orientation of the phone. But why?

    I liked quibi for it's content, but not the format. Hopefully people will save the content. The All-Celebrity low production of Princess Bride was just awesome. Quibi WAS NOT short form. It was always a 30 minute story chopped into three ten-minute segments. There was one show that had an existing fan base, Punk'd. I got the subscription free with T-Mobile. It wasn't entirely mobile only with Samsung DeX and even offered a full experience with the content running in full screen and anything missed from portrait mode showed on the side. I would LOVE to see most of the shows and short films brought to other platforms. Netflix had better start buying these from the hole they are buried in. The comedies on this format were worth trying to save quibi. Netflix seriously needs to buy "Dummy", since they'd make a ton of money off it.

    Great content as always! I was actually excited when I discovered Quibi and the short shows but then I forgot to open the App for a few months and then It shut down! I didn’t even know till I saw your video. Shame. But as you say, goes to show you can have all the money in the world but if it’s not the right idea or it’s executed wrong or it’s just wrong place wrong time it ain’t gonna work!
