Thread: Sound on escort videos on by default? That's a bit silly

  1. #1

    Default Sound on escort videos on by default? That's a bit silly

    I question the amount of thought that went into the whole user experience with this new escort video lark.

    To illustrate my point I've created a persona - Ted

    Ted's wife is knitting beside the fire. Ted's a bit bored and fancies something salacious, fires up the old 486 55mhz in the corner and jets himself off to escort-ireland.com, "Oooh she looks fancy" Ted thinks to himself he clicks her profile link. Ted flashes a quick glance at the wife, just to be sure like, there she is knitting away god bless her. "Whats that little telly thing at the bottom, I'll click it and see"....

    Two weeks later, Ted's marriage of 55 years is over, he's living in a bedsit just over an electrical shop in Dorset St.

    Poor, wretched Ted.

    Ted was happy as happy could be,
    switched on the video - volume high
    deaf as a post it was plain to see
    Alas his wife left him high and dry

    Default Ted shoud switch the sound off on his PC..........

    Would Ted click on a video on a porn site with the sound on with the Missus within earshot???

    I think not...........

    Im fact I think you'll find, by default, sound is automatically enabled on the majority of sites with videos. Both of an adult nature or otherwise ...........

    Plan ahead Ted.............

    The video only starts playing when you click play. What do you expect a silent movie until you then click play sound also? It's not like we are loading video to play without user clicking on play.

    You see you're making the mistake of assuming Ted is in the same user group as you. With over 5000 postings in this forum alone you'd probably fall into the expert user category - an expert user has pre-concieved expectations on software functionality and performance. Ted is what is described as a novice user, novice users have none of these expectations. So while you might assume clicking a video will immediately play music or whatever, You shouldn't assume other less experienced users have the same expectations.

    on a side issue -

    isn't the video a great addition though?

    I mean, i've seen jessie's profile on numerous occasions and always been impressed, but having seen the video - which i have to admit is well made and a turn on - it shows that there is 'more' to jessie than there appears to be in just her profile pics.

    while still attractive, she would be curvier than i would go for.

    so from that perspective i think the videos are great as they give a better idea of the girls shape.

    dom

    i hope lisa & jenny make one soon!
