We scour the web for the absolute best videos so you don't have to.

Let's be honest, searching for entertaining videos is way too time consuming. Who really has an hour to kill browsing around the web?

That's why we handpick every video for you, so you'll spend all your time watching the best videos, not browsing around YouTube or Reddit. We guarantee no automated system can match the quality of our selections. And even though we favor shorter videos, our selections are so good that many people are surprised at how long they end up watching videos every day.

Our goal is to do one thing, and do it better than everyone else - and that's to show you the finest videos. We don't feature pictures, blog posts, or anything else that would distract you from great videos.


Simple and speedy.

Our app was built to be simple and fast, fast, fast.
• No ads, user comments, or hit counters
• Interface designed for speed and coded from scratch
• 90% of videos are 5 minutes or shorter

Shiny new videos every day.

Our content is updated every weekday with new content. We post 4-6 new videos every day to keep you entertained with the most relevant, interesting, and timely video content.

YouTube: Great videos hidden under a mountain of spam.

It's a trap!

YouTube content creators are incentivized to get clicks on their videos, so they'll write anything to get you to start their video. Once they get your click, they don't care if you actually like the video or not.

Information overload.

There's a lot of noise on YouTube - silly comments, pointless videos, and misleading view counters. Even if you have an honest content author, you have a one-in-a-million chance of liking the video.

Irrelevant content.

95% of YouTube's content probably doesn't mean a thing to you. Beauty vloggers, amateur comedians, and gaming nerds sharing Minecraft secrets. None of that stuff matters to you, so why bother browsing through it?

Ricochet: Digging through the spam for our discerning users.

Accurate descriptions.

Our titles and descriptions are thoughtfully written and edited to be simple, direct, and entertaining. Screenshots are captured from the video, and we write our titles like we would search for them on Google.

You immediately know what you're about to watch by reading the title and summary, and you know how long of a time commitment you're in for. Fast, easy to read, and accurate.
