Coming Soon - Rifftrax Sync App
« on: December 03, 2015, 08:44:51 PM »
http://www.rifftrax.com/app




Your RiffTrax "Just the Jokes!" will now be synced automatically!

Coming in the next few days, RiffTrax is launching iOS and Android apps which will AUTOMATICALLY sync your RiffTrax "Just the Jokes!" commentaries with your movies like Twilight, Harry Potter and Star Wars! Just hit play on your phone or tablet and the app listens for the movie and automatically syncs everything, and keeps it synced. It will work with your TV, computer, DVDs, Blu-rays, Netflix, Amazon Video and other streams - even in a movie theater!

It's magic! Just like Shazam, but for movies!

We’ve been waiting nine years for this type of technology and it’s almost here. Our beta launch is just a few days away. The app will be completely FREE, AND it will have all six Star Wars movies pre-loaded into it for FREE! If you want to be the first to check it out, just enter your email address below, and we’ll let you know as soon as it's ready.

Thanks - we can't wait for you to try it!

Mike, Kevin, Bill and the RiffTrax Crew

I would be amazed if Harry Potter 8 didn't get released about the same time.

Those who cry about the lack of MP3 riffs - if this is successful, I'll wager it means the return of them!

During the live show, they were very strongly hinting at "being able to listen to a riff in a theater" with this app "although they couldn't think of anything in the theater soon that might qualify"  before making a reference to The Force Awakens. I'd be surprised if that happened, but Star Wars riffs sell really well, so who knows?

I assume this isn't going to have an NTSC limitation?

Wait, what was the 'Force Awakens' reference? Because they might have been referring to the fact that many theatres are going to show the original Star Wars films before TFA, and they are preloaded on the app...

That makes a lot more sense.

I definitely got the idea that they were going to have a riff of The Force Awakens while it's in theaters. And while they do have a good relationship with studios in the last few years, have they done much with Disney? Not to mention that it's a hell of a big thing for them to have access to a huge tentpole movie a month or so in advance to write riffs for. Is the final cut even done a month in advance of release? I always thought the editors and directors were tweaking things to last minute.

I seem to recall them writing some of the riffs in the theater back in the day so they could have an MP3 ready for DVD release day.

Actually, I was very intrigued by this announcement, not only because I love the idea of the system automatically syncing the movies, but of what this could mean for the people who post up iRiffs and such, since most of those ARE audio only tracks.  Would there be a way, when that service comes back in full, to be able to submit items to work with this app?  I'm guessing there's a bit of "pre-work" to do to get it running properly, but I think syncing issues in general are the biggest reasons the mp3s are less popular than the VODs, and getting that hurdle out of the way would be fantastic for practically everyone in the world.

And no, I wouldn't expect the Rifftrax crew to do all the work to have the iRiff work properly.  I'm sure most of the people who submit them are tech-savvy enough to get them working properly on their own to make them compatible.
