Since ancient times, storytellers have been bound to a single linear structure with which to tell their stories. CustomPlay's PC DVD software realizes the potential of random access technologies to provide an extensive set of innovative movie playback features. The software’s features include Presentations, Compilations, Subjects, Dilemmas, Best Of, Performers, Filmmaking, Plot Info, Shopping, Music, Locations, Search, Preview, Control, and playback functions including Who, What, and Notifications.

This software is not available on mobile devices.


Presentations are story-driven depictions that are focused on a specific genre, theme, perspective, or idea. By selectively skipping content, the depiction offers a more enjoyable viewing experience to its intended audience. Examples of Presentations include Action, ActionX, Romance, Comedy, and Intellectual. A 60 Minute Presentation retains the primary storyline, principal characters, major themes, and most memorable moments of the film. A Perspective Presentation places a viewer within the emotional framework of a character.


Compilations bring together only the clips from the movie that share similar content or themes (10-30 minutes). For example, the "Action" Compilation of Dredd plays all the graphic action scenes without plot or story to interrupt the violence. The "Ted Gets a Job" Compilation of Ted features clips relating to Ted’s employment at the grocery store. The "Intellectual" Compilation of Contact plays segments that relate to the religious and philosophical themes that arise throughout the film.


Subjects are fun and polished sets of segments that are intended to amuse, inform, or parody specific elements of a film (1-3 minutes). Examples of Subjects include Action, like "Nonstop Gunfire" in Predator; the Mannerisms of a specific character, like "Blinky Bella" in Twilight; Film Techniques, like "Lens Flares" in Star Trek; items, like "Oranges" in The Godfather; "Movie in A Nutshell", a nutty parody of the movie; and "Dirty Talk", in which non-sexual dialogue is taken out of context.


Dilemmas present some of the most intellectually stimulating clips in a movie to provoke thought and conversations (30-120 seconds). The feature depicts conflicts between two competing moral principles. Example of moral principles include: compassion, financial responsibility, obligation to employees, parental responsibility, pursuit of soul mate, and self-actualization.

Best Of

Honoring excellence in filmmaking, Best Of presents the Best Lines (5-10 seconds each), Best Performances (1-2 minutes each), Memorable Moments (1-2 minutes each), Memorable Characters (30-45 seconds each), and Romantic Moments (2-3 minutes each). Examples of the Best Of depictions include: Vito Corleone’s "I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse" Best Line from The Godfather, Marlon Brando’s "I could have been a contender" Best Performance from On the Waterfront, Captain Jack Sparrow’s Pirates of the Caribbean Most Memorable Character, and Neo’s bullet-time Most Memorable Moment in The Matrix.


Performers enables quick retrieval of all the clips (30-60 seconds each), best lines (5-10 seconds each), and best performances (1-2 minutes each) by a principal performer within a movie. The feature also showcases the faces and talents of noteworthy actors and actresses with the Close-Ups (30-45 seconds each) and Memorable Characters (30-45 seconds each) depictions.


Filmmaking provides brief explanations of the most noteworthy techniques used in the production of the movie. The feature enables the viewer to gain a greater appreciation of the ever evolving art form. Filmmaking can be accessed during movie playback, or through its own list of individual segments (15-40 seconds).

Plot Info

Plot Info provides brief explanations of the ambiguous or noteworthy plot points in the movie. The feature helps the viewer to gain a greater understanding of the movie’s subtleties and key concepts. Attention is drawn to significant clues without spoiling the story. Plot Info can be accessed during movie playback, or through its own list of individual segments (20-60 seconds).


Shopping provides website links for items and locations depicted in the movie. The feature can be accessed during movie playback, or through its own catalog of 15-40 seconds depictions. Shopping highlights include: a life size statue of the T-800 statue from Terminator, the Algerian Love Knot necklace from Casino Royale, Arthur’s leather jacket from Inception, James Bond bungee jump experience from Golden Eye, and a Harry Potter tour in London.


Music provides Amazon.com links for music presented in the movie. The feature can be accessed during movie playback, or through its own catalog of 30-90 second depictions.


Locations identifies the noteworthy places depicted in the movie, as well as the actual shooting locales. The feature provides links to Google Maps’ aerial and street views, and to corresponding information websites. Locations can be accessed during movie playback, or through its own list of individual 10-30 second segments.


Search provides the most extensive and refined in-video search technology that allows the retrieval of items, actions, performers, characters, locations, clips, and scenes. A Search segment is 5-10 seconds, a clip is 30-60 seconds, and a scene is 2-5 minutes. Examples of keyword searches include "Trinity’s Ducati 996″ in The Matrix, "Spider-Man kiss MJ" in Spider-Man, "lightsaber duel" in Star Wars, "Brooklyn Decker cleavage" in Battleship, and "bloody horse head" in The Godfather.


Preview enables a viewer to selectively play mild, explicit, and/or graphic depictions in each of fourteen categories of possibly objectionable content including violence, gore, sex, and profanity. Preview permits an informed decision when adjusting the objectionable content settings.


Control customizes the playing of a movie according to a viewer’s preferred level of explicitness (None, Mild, Explicit, and Graphic) in each of fourteen categories of possibly objectionable content (Bigotry, Blasphemy, Bodily Functions, Dishonor Flag, Dishonor Parent, Gore, Hideous, Mature, Nudity, Sex, Substance Abuse, Violence, Violence to Animals, and Vulgar Words). CustomPlay’s Control is the most advanced, effective, and flexible objectionable content control system.


Have you ever been watching a movie and asked yourself "Who is that actor?" or "What did they just say?" Now CustomPlay answers these questions for you with its advanced in-video functions.

The Who? function identifies the Performer/Character depicted in the current clip. A link is provided to each performer’s biography and filmography.

The What? function rewinds the movie a user-defined amount of time, e.g. 30 seconds, and continues playback with the subtitles automatically enabled only during the replayed portion.

The various Notification functions display, according to a viewer’s preferences, in-video icons when information is available for Shopping, Music, Filmmaking, Locations, and Plot Info. Information, descriptions, and website links are made available.

The Play From function allows a viewer to continue playback from their current position regardless of the feature being played. If, for example, while playing a Best Line, the viewer wants to see what happens next, the Play From function would continue playback of the movie following the Best Line.
