New Fool Live/Video Library

This new system is very upsetting. I want to see if anyone else shares how I use the fool and see if they share the same experience.

I have been a Fool for two years. I listen during work, which is sort of 3- 4 minutes at a time during the day, and again for 30 minute drives a few times a week.

I don’t , obviously, like every show MF produces. Certain ones are much better for me than others.

So, how I use the Fool is to go to the Video Library and listen to my favorite 30 to 60 minute shows from the day before. The new Fool Live and Video Library has eliminated many of the shows I really enjoyed, including alot of the Mindset shows. Also, when I look at the video library, it now is tough to find a 30-60 minute show. It appears most videos are 1 to 5 minute long.

To watch a 1 to 5 minute video requires attention, focus, looking for these short videos. I listen to MF more in the background or when driving. The new format therefore doesn’t work for me.

I’m therefore thinking of discontinuing my membership.

Anyone else share this experience?

Hi, jlue0706.

First, this is a public discussion board so many here don’t even have access to Motley Fool Live. There is a Premium Community board for MFL that may be more appropriate:

https://discussion.fool.com/4056/pb-motley-fool-live-122676.aspx…

That said, I just went to the Video Library and clicked on The Morning Show and found both full shows and highlight videos. Today’s Mindset show is there when I filtered by Mindset.

I cannot advise you on your membership, but I would assume that you get more value out of whatever premium service to which you subscribe than just Motley Fool Live videos.

Thanks. Maybe I was just having a couple of bad days.

I get in the car and plan to head out and start a video. Can’t find one longer than 5 minutes long.

But, sure enough, I just looked and see 4 complete shows available.

Still like the old system better, more options, but at least I do have some long replay videos available.

Getting into a car and heading out. I remember that.

I’m the opposite. I hate almost all of the video content, especially the longer ones. I like to research specific stocks. I don’t have time to consume a 60 minute video for a 10 minute segment about the stock I am interested in. I can read an edited article, with more content, in 5 minutes.

Yes, there are transcripts. But these are terrible in comparison to the articles TMF used to produce. Even the “Why ABC Stock Rallied on Tuesday” briefs are better than reading a transcript.

My understanding is that TMF wants to target the demographics that prefer videos. Maybe that is their best choice to improve revenues. I just don’t like it.

oh my god I cannot agree more, it now takes 30 minutes of time to sift through the nonsense 3 min vids they now litter the page with to find full shows that I want to watch.

It’s actually really annoying I can’t imagine who could of had this bright idea to not have an option to filter out these nonsense duplicates short 3 min clips.

Thank you so much for sharing the feedback and please keep it coming, we are listening. I’m sorry the experience has been frustrating.

We are going to be making some updates to the hub to try and make it clearer which are long shows and which are clips.

Yes, I am 100% behind your comments. Who has time to sit through an entire video to hear about one stock that interests me. The transcripts are terrible and with all the umms, ahhs, and partial sentences which make no sense I spend valuable time just trying to find the information I am looking for.

I miss the clear and concise analysis that we used to receive. In my opinion, this new format stinks.
