Introducing Video Mode!

Share this post

Since Kickstarter launched in 2009, over 75,000 project videos have been uploaded to Kickstarter. From day one, we’ve been blown away by the amazing videos you've created — from the singer Allison Weiss setting the standard early on, to the incredible Wes Anderson spoof the Inman Park Squirrel Census produced, and all of the amazing “Oh hey, I didn’t see you there” videos. 

For a long time we’ve been wanting to find a good way to show these off, so people could explore projects through the medium of video.

And so we are happy to announce Video Mode, a new way for you to discover projects on Kickstarter. It’s really simple: a full-screen presentation where you can watch every single live project video.

Sit back, relax, and shuffle through. If you like what you see, click the "Explore this Project" button and read what it’s all about. Not interested? Jump to "something different," or see what projects are happening in a particular location. 

We hope you enjoy this as much as we do. Jump in!

      normal design, too few video.. this one.. too much video... mix them two and do it properly...

      This is a great idea.

      Seems to me that this more strongly encourages people to check out projects that are different than the one they came to Kickstarter, which seems like a good thing for spreading the success of mega projects around.

      What I want to know is how the "Show something different" selection is made. Does it favor projects that are already popular? Does it choose from within the category a random, open project? Is it based on the most recently launched? The way this algorithm works may have a huge sway on which projects people find if Kickstarter keeps moving more and more in this media-centric direction.

      Great idea! Have used this and it bypasses having to look at the entire project.

      I have backed 132 projects, I had been hoping for this feature, which will make is easier to support more. They are more interesting than TV I think The other feature I wanted I had up on my project which was a RED button instead of green for project that you dis-like you could take money away from the project & move it to another or to yourself. Do to "issues" I removed most of my video, it is now just 30 seconds. I have been kickstarting for 20 years and like this site. I thought the sense of community of the was a bit stronger than what it is though...I have a PATENTED product kickstarting for $1. When I REPLIED to some emails that I received from people I had backed I simply mentioned I had a project kickstarting and instead of ignoring it or supporting it they turned me into to the kickstarter police for severe admonishment & hopefully punishment. Rock On! I will not say what my project is, I dare not.

      Can someone please tell me why I can't see any of the videos now. I click play and can hear them but no longer see them? All other videos on my computer work just fine but nothing on Kickstarter?
