It's too slow to hide the bottom slide with settings and progress. It takes 5 or 10 seconds or so, while I just want it to hide near instantly when my mouse is not over it anymore.
Also the 'more info' slide that now shows in the player hides part of the video and can't be hidden, so major annoyance.
No quality options, video often shows pixelation. Don't have these problems with YouTube.
Taking too long to upload videos has hours that locks and closes alone several times
it´s very slow to load videos
Doers not work at all in the Edge browser.
Stops workin on opera all the time. Has to switch to firefox instead to be able to watch the clipp.
MacBookPro, iOS 10.12.3 Safari 10.0.3
Worked fine embedded into the website.
When expanded to full screen it still played, but the controls were not accessible. I could minimise with ESC, but then the controls were again not accessible. Page refresh brought back the controls.
Image quality is good, though.
Never played in full screen mode. IE 11 on Windows 10
Keyboard shortcuts don't work when you click the video. Only when you click the commands bar. Really annoying.

not as good as youtube... loads slow & uses more ram
Played really well on max settings [1080p/12Mbps] up until just after the 10-minute mark, at which point it would stutter, load for a few minutes, stutter forward and repeat. I changed to 720p and it continued onwards to the end without further issues. [Firefox/Win10]
Win 7, Google Chrome. Works really good if I just let it play the video since second one, but if I forward to a later point in the video, it stays loading forever until I reload the page.

Can't remove the Settings window when you click Closed Captioning. It stayed up for the majority of the latest episode.
Using latest version of Firefox. Windows 10 PC.
Would be nice to have Picture-in-Picture on Mac OS (like on Youtube).
Are you supposed to be able to see video in the message in Outlook? If so, how do I get the plugin to make that work?
Sorry, thank you
There is a ~1sec pause when you move/scale the window across screens.
Watching a trailer and then coming back resumes - awesome!
It'd be good if clicking the video did a pause/resume -- instead of having to find the (tiny) pause/play button.
The player works under iOS 10 in my RSS reader app Newsify however the video player control expands all the time horizontally.

Like the player on the Xbox One, I don't like how it automatically starts the previous episode. On the One, I have to force close it or select something else to get it to stop.
