The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 90
Chapter 90 .Barrage
Wu Tong stopped his hand typing on the keyboard and drank a glass of water.
At four o’clock in the morning, Ningjiang has the scenery he is most familiar with.
The company at this time is no longer busy during the day. It is quiet and peaceful. Wu Tong likes this feeling very much, as if there is only one person in the whole world.
He came to the window sill, looked at the city that hadn’t awakened, and sighed.
glanced at the computer screen, it was not a familiar interface for writing code, but a document.
says “Resignation Application” in big characters.
Wu Tong is tired, he feels that his path on Tomato Video Network has come to an end.
Before his father was seriously ill, Wu Tong immediately applied for a vacation from the leader, but the whole process went through for nearly a week. It was said that the leader of a business trip was in fact only when he came back from the island and passed the process slowly. He also criticized Wu Tong for not knowing how Company dedication, when Wu Tong returned home, his father had fallen into a severe coma, and he couldn’t even see his son the last time.
Sometimes, when Wu Tong finished writing the code, he stood in front of the window and wanted to jump down like this. He was over a hundred, but he was cowardly in nature and he didn’t even have the courage to commit suicide.
Liu Xueyan’s resignation may be the last straw to crush the camel. There are not many people who can talk about Wu Tong in the company, and Liu Xueyan, who used to develop before, is more familiar. Through him, Wu Tong also saw Tomato Video Network. The essence of.
Back to his seat, he finished writing the resignation report, printed it out, and put it on the leader’s desk. Then at 8 o’clock in the morning, he quietly left the company.
Today is Sunday. He was supposed to work overtime to fix some minor errors in the player, but Wu Tong has already made a decision. He fixed the error all night before writing a letter of resignation. Even though he has to leave, he still has to stand on the last shift. Gang.
Wu Tong usually walks to the park next door. He has never been here. This old park is exceptionally quiet. Wu Tong navigated to the door of a four-story building according to the map navigation. This is the headquarters of the phantom animation.
He walked in here.
The Phantom TV is also closed today, but there is still a security guard at the front desk. Wu Tong checked in and walked to the second floor and saw Xu Rui sitting in front of the computer, while Liu Xueyan was sitting on the chair behind him, looking at Xu Rui’s computer intently. screen.
“Ah, Wu Tong, you are here.”
Liu Xueyan noticed Wu Tong’s figure and beckoned him to come over.
Wu Tong hesitated, then walked to Liu Xueyan and looked at Xu Rui’s computer screen.
There is an animation playing on this, which he hasn’t seen before. The pink-haired girl with two ponytails is walking in a world with quite different texture.
This is the first episode of “Magic Girl Madoka Magica”.
Wu Tong has a general understanding of animation, mainly because he doesn’t have time to watch it. He has watched a few movies under the recommendation of Liu Xueyan. The most impressive is “Unnatural Death”, which reminds him of his family.
He only thinks that the picture of this animation is very delicate, with bright colors, giving people a lively and cheerful feeling.
At this moment, a string of text suddenly floated across the top of the screen.
【Test Test Test Test】
Wu Tong was stunned.
He thought it was included in the animation, but it was too strange.
Xu Rui saw that he successfully attracted Wu Tong’s attention, and he restored the playback window. You can see that there is a series of windows showing comments next to the window that plays the animation. Xu Rui typed a few words casually, and soon the text was Appeared in the window playing the animation, scrolling past.
“what is this?”
Wu Tong is a little curious. In the video player he recently developed for Tomato, there is a feature that when the video is not maximized, comments can appear on the right side of the window. He thinks this is a means to promote audience interaction.
But he didn’t expect that Xu Rui had already pushed this interactive way forward by more than a big step.
Wu Tong’s head immediately began to think. Although this kind of commentary method reduces the sense of substitution of the video to a certain extent, it also enhances the communication between the audience. In the past, the audience only had to leave a message below to interact after watching the video. This kind of interaction is relatively separate from the work.
Even the player Wu Tong developed before, which can see the screen and comments on the side at the same time, is not timely enough.
can be the player in Xu Rui’s computer. This form of synchronizing comments with the screen allows the audience to immediately see the corresponding comments when they see the screen and the mood fluctuates, forming resonance.
Wu Tong thought about it. This form of comment is more suitable for videos with discussion points, such as funny and stimulating videos, which is very suitable for this form, while those suspenseful and sensational videos are not suitable for this. Comment form now.
“This is called a barrage, Mr. Wu.”
Xu Rui said that this is an extremely crude version he asked several senior students of the School of Computer Science and Technology of Ningjiang University to make. It can only be nested locally outside of the native player. This thing is not practical at all. Its value lies in making Wu Tong and Liu Xueyan saw this barrage.
“The video website I am going to build will install this feature. Viewers can send out their comments in a timely manner so that other viewers who watch the video can see Xu Rui turned off the player. Turn around and then speak.
“I used to enjoy watching movies and animations with my friends, while discussing ongoing plots. This experience can even make some not-so-good-looking movies better, but after entering the Internet age, we have become sitting In front of the computer, I watched the video on my own, and there is no such communication anymore. I want to use the barrage to make the audience with this need feel that they are not alone when watching the animation.”
“I have never heard anyone mention this idea…”
Wu Tong said softly with emotion.
“People in China have a very obvious need for the Internet. Looking at the wide-ranging Weibo and chat software, we prefer things with social attributes. Many times, the reason why I use a software and play a game is not Because I like it very much, but because everyone around is using it, using it allows me to successfully integrate into my surrounding social environment.”
Xu Rui explained that things with social attributes are inherently stronger in communication than other types of things. This is true of the fraud at the beginning of “Soul Eater: Zero”, and the same is true for barrage video sites.
People’s word of mouth is a more powerful propaganda than any advertisement.
“Two of you, I sincerely hope that you can join my video site and together bring a little bit of different ripples to this calm industry.”
Xu Rui saw that the two of them were already a little moved, so he invited them.
“What is the name of your video site?”
Liu Xueyan was silent for a moment and asked.
Xu Rui heard the other party’s question and knew it was a signal of acceptance, so he spoke.
“It’s very simple, it’s called Hatsune Barrage Video Network.”
