A Suggestion for a Smartphone Video Player Interface
This paper proposes a new video player controlling application with an easy and user-friendly interface. Two existing video players, highly rated in Google Play, are analyzed. Based on the analysis, a prototype video player with an interactive interface was provided. This newly created video player that places importance on the control’s button size, placement and spacing between the keys, implements control buttons that appear where the user’s finger touches the display screen. To understand the usability of current video players and determine whether the new design has an impact, a survey of 51 people was conducted. The outcome revealed that the suggested video player provided the best usability for the video control. The result of this paper suggests that the proposed video player could be used as a framework for designing a user interface to enhance the usability of video players.
