Is anyone using Fluentflix.com ? Screenshots

Anyone seen this site? www.fluentflix.com I signed up a while ago and just got invited to use the site, it's still in beta I think, will be launched properly soon I guess.

But anyway, this is one of the best sites I've come across for Chinese in a while. It is basically a collection of all the most popular Chinese clips from around the internet at the moment. The creators then translate them, making all 汉字 clickable for translations and giving you the option to add it to your own vocab list if it's new to you. 

Hopefully I will get time to use this as it looks a fun way to learn Chinese! 

A couple of screen shots for you from a 7-UP advert about Snow White! Showing the 汉字,pinyin, English and then the clickable translations. 

Hope someone finds this useful :)

FluentFlix send me this recently ( partial email):

 ... FluentFlix beta is launching on September 3rd! After months of development and testing, we are thrilled to introduce the world to a new way to learn Chinese through authentic online video. 

 
Don't want to wait until September 3rd? Don't! All it takes to feast your eyes on the web's newest and hottest Chinese learning website is a simple @ or retweet!  Find us on Twitter here, or simply click here to Tweet!
 

We have been working on this for the better part of a year, and are thrilled to bring this concept to fruition. Think about it- a website featuring over 200 (and quickly increasing!) authentic Chinese language online videos featuring a huge variety of content, all expertly subtitled in our smooth video engine, with a built-from-scratch dictionary and intelligent vocab review.    .....

I signed up  a week or two ago and just got an invite.  I've only checked out 1 song so far: it looks nice, it's easy to use and it's definitely fun.  But I don't think FluentFlix is revolutionary for learning Chinese.  It's a bottom-up approach that gives you all the pieces of the puzzle at the touch of a button.  Most research would advise against this kind of method because, although you can understand it more easily than you would be able to on your own, it isn't likely to stick with you (even with the add vocab button). I was hoping FluentFlix would take a top-down approach and guide you through the videos by letting the learner attempt to understand it first at his or her appropriate level, (e.i. if you are a Newbie, then listen for the numbers in this commercial.  What numbers do you hear?  How much is the item they are advertising?)   Of course, that kind of thing takes a lot more work on the part of FluentFlix and the learner; in general, people would rather be giving all the answers than told that they need to figure it out on their own in order for it to really stick.  But nonetheless, I like it, and the video I watched kept my attention much longer than it would have if I had just watched it on YouTube.

Oh, sucks that it doesn't work in China! 

But in brighter news (for people outside of China..!) the site is going public soon and you can get an invite by tweeting them:

Too bad the website is completely and fully blocked here in China, can't see a single thing :(

I did try and played a few newbie videos, it´s very good self study material except the audio , (just like the one with provided link)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5X6uE-qijjs&feature=player_embed...
The breaking down part comes to every word which is good, though it's quite difficult to figure out the correct pronounciation with the constant crescendo and decrescendo...

Other videos are great, and I must say I love the vocab tool!
Great way of learning Chinese!

Yep all free so far for me too, no mention of any fees to be introduced. Which is good as it's great fun :)

I also signed in a couple of months ago. The signing in was for free and so far it is for free. I'm also very enthusiastic about this website. It's really fun and a different way of learning. Two thumbs up for the inventors of this website.

Did you pay to sign up or is it so far free since it is still a beta ?  I have gotten on the free No Nonsense Newbie part a few times and like it.
