I think it looks fine. What's so bad about it?
I feel like if we're gonna start posting terrible UI from all sources we're gonna be here a while…
When will we all agree that this joke is really stupid and elitist?
Take solace in the fact that most designers couldn't even go about engineering even the most basic form of this.
I loved using this tool!
I like the "Enable Middle Out Compression" radio button.
I enjoyed how far they have taken this. I love their word press site is the icing on the cake.
The 19MB thumbnail of Gilfoyle, is a nice touch!
They've gone to the point of CodeRag even having a site - http://www.coderag.com/
What bugged me the most is that Monica said the UX is fine. Bitch, a faulty UI is faulty UX!
YES! i didn't get her point as well! What didn't she like in the UI!
Fucking modified Bootstrap. It's a damn virus I tell you!!!
I don't get it, what's the problem?
I suppose you want more options? Don't worry, I'm sure they're working on it.
This is really similar to Handbrake.
I'd like to see people come up with some solutions to this - maybe I'll do something on Codepen.
Love this show!
I don't think most people here realize it's for a TV show.... shhhhh. Let them keep thinking it's a real product. I can't wait for Eli Shiff to do a 3 part series on this.
Silicon Valley is always right on the verge of annoying me with some of their tech details, but I understand that they have to keep it amusing for everyone, not just us startup geeks.
It really isn't clear to me what the fuck PiedPiper is supposed to be based on this UI? A Dropbox competitor with faster uploading and downloading due to amazing compression? That's it?
It seems like the core algorithm being licensed out to the services and people that could benefit from improved compression would be the most effective way of getting it out into the world. You don't even need a UI for that.
Whatever, it's a TV show, but this strikes me as equally as uninspiring as the box in the server farm.
The UI is intentionally bad—that's the joke, just like their poor business decisions.
It's everything and nothing. ™️
I get that, I'm talking more about the purpose of the web app. I thought they were a compression company, not a storage company.
They're CloudConvert. But for compression. Plus you want to host that video somewhere for that everywhere access, right? Plus the server component for the machine learning so the compression gets better? Look, it's beta, it's not even 1.0 and it's not a hit immediately out of the gate – sounds about right to me.
It's fake and fiction. Just a bad mockup they did for a TV show. You guys need to chill.
They should have built the box.
This is why you don't beta test on your friends
All your option are belong to us

reminded me of this another compression tool. These tools are usually complex to design, yet, it's feasible.
