It’s happening faster than you can say “Homemade Trash Can R2D2.” All you fellow nerds going to this year’s Celebration VI: check out the official Star Wars Uncut event on Thursday, where we will be screening the full Director’s Cut and talking about the project.
Casey & Casey will be at the Star Wars Uncut table all weekend - come hang out with us! We’ve love to meet all fans who uploaded a scene and any fans interested in future Uncuts. Or any fans. Fans fans fans. We <3 fans.
VHX is proud to announce the world premiere of Aziz Ansari’s new comedy special Dangerously Delicious, available exclusively at azizansari.com. Pay Aziz $5 and you can instantly stream the 60-minute special or download a DRM-free video file for offline enjoyment. No ads, no bleeps. Watch a free preview if you’d like.
We believe artists should be keeping more money from their work, and we’re excited to help push this new approach to film distribution forward — cut out the middlemen, focus on your fans, tap the real potential of the Internet — as pioneered by folks like Louis CK and Kickstarter.
VHX’s Emmy Award-winning expertise in video technology and online communities made it easy to say yes when Aziz approached us about building the site. We worked closely with him and his team to design something memorable but effective, and created a billing and video streaming platform from scratch that works hand-in-hand with our embeddable video player.
We’re excited to share more information about a new endeavor — VHX For Artists — which makes it easy for anyone to sell videos directly to their fans. Get in touch.

UrbanDictionary teams up with VHX to create UrbanDictionary.tv
The new venture is a collaboration between the original site and VHX.tv.
Like much of the content on Urban Dictionary, the videos that wind up on UD.tv are chosen by random users. Those inerested in contributing need only go to the original site, look up any word, and attach a YouTube link into the field next to it. This video might be a clip from the TV showScrubs, in which Aziz Ansari keenly demonstrates the application of a word, or maybe a Youtuber elucidating it. After a user proposes the attachment, though, the video gets reviewed by a separate group of volunteers who serve as gatekeepers, deciding what incoming content will make it onto the site.
