Hey @vasylslobodian, What's your favorite aspect of the product you've built?

@jacqvon Hi Jacqueline! The most favourite is probably the main idea behind Explainers - to help startup founders discover and compare different forms of video presentation for their products.

Hey PH'ers! I'm Vasyl, the guy behind Explainers. Last September I decided to create a short explainer for one of my e-commerce product. I did not have any experience neither concrete understanding of how the video should look like - time, style, story. So I went online googling for some inspiration but didn't find a source that would really satisfy my needs. Guess what - I created one=). Right now, there're 130 videos on the website handpicked by me that you can filter through a bunch of categories: explainers, crowdfunding, commercials, tutorials, educational, customer testimonials and company testimonials. The last ones are not really "explainers" type of video, but I thought it still would be valuable to showcase them. If you guys love Explainers, I would go forward and introduce at least: 1) Directory, so production companies can showcase their profiles (and I can charge some money to support platform development); 2) Ability to rate video based on a few relevant variables (story, humor, music, product idea, etc). Something like Awwwards doing for websites. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this! P.S. You can also sign up for a curated newsletter with best product videos delivered to your inbox every week. Look for a bottom bar on explainers.world.

@vasylslobodian Unfortunately, I couldn't get the videos to play. It may be an issue with me being in the EU right now, but I specifically saw the issue with the SafeDrive, What is Pinterest, and BriefMe videos, working from a Macbook Pro (2013, running High Sierra 10.13.4), testing on both Chrome and Safari. I was able to find the videos on youtube and play them without issue. I know a lot of embedded videos are blocked internationally, so that may be the case here.

Good source for inspiration for those creating product explainer/startup launch videos. How are you sourcing the videos today, @vasylslobodian?

@rrhoover thanks Ryan! Good question - I don't really have a solid plan for now except user's submissions. Perhaps using PH + crowdfunding websites like indiegogo will help me out.
