Trailers & Videos Feature Updated

On the heels of the Photo Gallery upgrade comes some changes to the Trailers & Videos pages for movies.

If you are familiar with the layout from the past, you'll notice that the changes we made are not breathtaking, but we do think that they make the feature cleaner and easier to use. Gone are the separate buttons for viewing the videos, as the same functionality is done with a simple link on the video's title instead.

For videos that are on third-party web sites (the Quicktime videos, for example), they are no longer viewed in a popup window, but rather a new full-sized window that is either a new tab or a new window, depending on your browser's settings. This new approach is more mobile-friendly, and it should make the feature more compatible with browsers that are trying to prevent popup ads from being shown (and detecting the popup as an ad instead of a video window).

The example above is from the Trailers & Videos page for Noah, which is opening in theaters tomorrow. If you would like to see a list of active movies that have trailers and videos available, head over to the All Movies page in Now Showing that is sorted by media.
