How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Dailymotion website uses a dark blue and white color scheme that creates a pleasantly calm atmosphere. This is important considering the variety of thumbnail images and other elements found throughout the website. Users will encounter advertisements along the sides and near the top of each page. This is generally not intrusive, but can add a little clutter to the user’s overall experience. Each video is listed with the title, a short description or summary, a thumbnail image, sharing and embedding tools, user comments and other information.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can register for a Dailymotion account by clicking the white “Register” button in the upper, right hand corner of the page. The user can also log in with their Facebook profile by clicking the Facebook icon to the left of the registration link.
Those who choose to create a separate account are asked to provide a username, password, email address and date of birth. The user is also asked to enter a verification code (to prove that they are human) and choose whether or not they would like to receive updates and messages from selected third party companies. A small note at the bottom of the form advises the user that by submitting their information they are automatically agreeing to the Dailymotion terms of use.

What does it cost to use the application?

Dailymotion is a free website that welcomes all users to sign up and participate in its video based online community. All users are given the same level of access and can view video clips and trailers as often as they like. The site works much like YouTube and includes advertisements to help offset the cost of operations.
