Videos are advertisements you can watch in Egg, Inc. They give rewards upon watching.
You can occasionally get an alert that a video is ready to be watched. If you click the notification, you will be offered either a bonus of Bocks, Golden Eggs, or Boosts. You may then accept or decline to watch the video, not earning the reward if declined. If there are no ads available (e.g. not being on a connection), the notification will appear but hitting the watch button will dismiss the alert.
Drones are paused while a video is playing but they are not paused while you are on the confirmation screen. Therefore if you see a drone appear right after you click the video notification, you should quickly click "Yes" to watch the video and then quickly hunt the drone after the video finishes.
In a Contract, a video alert can alternatively offer chicken boxes that increase your farm population. Normal chicken boxes offer 3% of your current farm population, and rare, large chicken boxes offer 12% of your current farm population.
However, they don't appear after habs are 90% full, which is about a red line in the occupancy.
Chicken boxes are extremely useful because you can grow your farm (eventually by over 1 million with just 1 box) without having to spend golden eggs and tokens on a Tachyon Prism.
You can watch a video to earn a 2x multiplier for 2 hours, (upgradeable to 8 hours using Video Doubler Time), but sometimes this option may be grayed out and unavailable if there is still a considerable amount of time in the multiplier.
If the option to watch the video is available while your multiplier is still going, watching the video will only reset the timer to its full amount—it will not add hours to your existing timer.
- Videos that reward boosts mention them as rare, epic, and possibly legendary. A rare boost may be a 1hr. Soul Mirror, but an epic boost could be a 1 day Soul mirror.
