YouTube & YouTube Kids
If you want to stream YouTube or YouTube Kids on your CINEMOOD, please, download YouTube app on your phone and follow the instructions:
1) Connect CINEMOOD and your phone to the same Wi-Fi network;
2) Make sure that your Wi-Fi works at a 2.4 GHz frequency;
3) Go to the ‘Online’ section in CINEMOOD and choose YouTube;

6) Select a video you would like to watch;
7) Click on the ‘streaming’ icon and choose CINEMOOD or CINEMOOD_ONE (for Android);

* If you followed the instructions and nothing happens, then most likely your Wi-Fi is working at a 5 GHz frequency. But this is not a problem. You can always use a different device (for example, iPad) for Wi-Fi distribution. Connect you phone and CINEMOOD to the distributed network. After that everything will work just fine. If Wi-F- works at a 2,4 Ghz frequency, but you cannot find a ‘streaming’ button in YouTube then restart your CINEMOOD and application on your phone.
P.S. We don’t recommend charging CINEMOOD while watching YouTube or YouTube for this might cause an overheating. Though there is nothing grave about it for CINEMOOD will automatically turn off in case the temperature is too high.

It should be borne in mind that the maximum file size is limited to 2 GB FAT, FAT32 4 GB, NTFS supports files of almost any size. In future updates on we are planning to add support for exFAT file system.
What are the requirements for the projection surface?
You may project onto any surface, even on the ceiling! Our first customers loved the feeling and ease of lying in bed and watching it on the ceiling overhead. You may project it on walls, doors, floor, cars, airplanes and anything else you can think of. Light exposure and distance from the surface will play a factor, but CINEMOOD’s projection distance is anywhere between 1 and 15 feet. Tip: Projecting on any dark or black surfaces won’t work because they do not reflect light well enough.
Offline library and interface support two languages: English and Russian.
How many hours does the CINEMOOD’s lamp work?
Instead of lamps, we use a different, more durable LED light source. The lifespan of the LED reaches up to 30,000 hours.
The timer is in the Settings section. It can be set to 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes.
Built-in speaker has power of 2.5 Watts. If it’s not enough for you you can always connect CINEMOOD to external headphones/speakers via Bluetooth or Mini Jack.
How long does CINEMOOD’s battery work?
The work of the built-in rechargeable battery depends on the material you are viewing. Offline library will deplete your battery in 5 hours. YouTube will deplete it in 3 hrs.
Battery capacity in CINEMOOD is 4000 mAh. Thus, if you look at the embedded content on CINEMOOD for 40 minutes, 5 days a week, a 100% charge will suffice for 10 days!
Is it possible to charge and to use CINEMOOD at the very same time?
Sure! The battery charges to give you 5+ hours of offline library playback and you have the option to connect your CINEMOOD either to a power bank (like you would use with a smart phone or tablet) or to the included AC adaptor. But please bear in mind that CINEMOOD won’t be charging, just keeping the same level of battery.
What is ‘Keystone correction’?
If your projection is angled, it’ll be a little deformed and will resemble a trapeze. ‘Keystone correction’ function gets rid of this defect. Almost any angle projection will be rectangular and without distortion.
Will there be software updates?
Yes, regular software updates will be made available for your device via Wi-Fi.
Our cube, as well as cases, have passed many tests and received not only the international certificate of quality for the EAC, sales in Russia, but also many other security certificates in Europe and America (CE, RoHS, REACH, WEE, FCC, WERC, PRO65, CPSIA).
Use the longest button (4), to adjust the focus till you achieve the desired picture clarity. Remember – the distance between the projector and the screen will also affect the picture quality, so adjust accordingly.
Use the Up/Down buttons to adjust the audio volume to your liking. Does it get any easier than that?
Problem with the projection
1) You see a purple dot on a dark image? Don’t worry, your CINEMOOD is not defective – it’s an optical peculiarity of the mini-cinema. It appears solely on a dark background.
2) The image is distorted? Please write about it to email@example.com.
How to connect my flash-drive to CINEMOOD?
If you have a standard USB flash-drive, please:
1) buy an OTG-cable in any e-store;
2) insert your flash-drive to one end of an OTG-cable, and then use another end to connect OTG-cable to your CINEMOOD.
If you have a micro-USB flash-drive, then just insert it into your CINEMOOD.

CINEMOOD can’t find my flash-drive

2) Try to change the OTG cable.
3) Make sure that your flash-drive is not in the exFAT format. If it’s so, change it to FAT or NTFS formats.

SAFETY AND HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS
Mini-cinema CINEMOOD is perfect for any age! Small children will discover preset offline library with digital books, cartoons, audio books, fairytales and classical music. Adults will be enjoying popular online services and the ability to upload your own videos, photos and music. Silent mini-cinema is completely safe when used properly. It has no sharp corners, it is quite durable and has an balanced image brightness, so won’t strain eyes (but we do not recommend neither adults nor children looking at ray projection 🙂
Is it safe to look directly into the screen/beam?
CINEMOOD features an optical engine brightness level, making it safe for the eyes of your little ones. However, we strongly recommended avoiding direct eye contact with the projector beam, as it can be very bright. Please, don’t point the beam at anybody’s eyes. That’s not the best way to make friends.
How do I control how much time my child spends watching cartoons?
According to trusty psychologists, it’s recommended that children limit cartoon watching to 30 minutes. And we don’t want to brag, but we’ve solved this problem for you too! There’s a timer built into your CINEMOOD to let you and your child know when their 30 minutes is up. You’re welcome!
Is CINEMOOD waterproof?
Unfortunately, not right now. Our CINEMOOD scientists haven’t yet cracked the code of how to watch movies underwater, but as soon as they do we’ll let you know. For now, please, don’t get your CINEMOOD wet.
What is CINEMOOD made of? Any harmful materials?
CINEMOOD’s outer body is made from durable, smooth plastic with no sharp edges that could potentially harm your child. Its insides are made up of a complex slew of electronic components that we won’t bore you with!
Is CINEMOOD better than tablet or TV?
It’s compact and lightweight. Watch your favorite cartoons and movies on any surface. Occupy the most comfortable position and watch even on the ceiling!
Mini-cinema’s projection isn’t harmful to your eyes. Notorious blue spectrum, which is present in TV, tablets and PCs, adversely affects the health due to decomposition of melatonin in the eyeball. This leads to worsening eyesight in an early age. CINEMOOD on the contrary projects the picture, i.e. you look at the reflected light. We even took into account the peculiarities of child’s eye so the projection of CINEMOOD is bright enough to watch cartoons, filmstrips in a daylight, but subdued enough not to damage the eyesight.
CINEMOOD is installed with the proven “child-friendly” content: good cartoons, digitized books, audio fairytales and lullabies. You can be sure that the child does not see anything of dubious nature.
