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.
Need a "X" or "Close" link to hide the notification bar :)
Not compatible with MetroBlur news reader. Error: No compatible source found for the current browser environment (0x10600003)
Huge ugly Black bars above and below on portrait phone. Lumia 950
Video seemed to work well. I would like an option to increase the playback speed.
hi there, it's very annoying that the overlay is not at least 50% transparent, it unnecessarily covers a significant portion of the screen.
just some feedback for ya, cheers
Player worked generally excellent in Edge browser on Windows 10 Mobile 14393.
Video quality was good and captions worked fine.
Interactive jump into other full trailers and then resuming main video feed worked perfectly.
Only small glitch/behaviour was following a web link correctly opened link in new browser window, BUT didn't auto-pause main video in original window.
Video player failed to load on iOS 10 app Newsify v4.6.2 where I read most of my RRS feeds. Viewed Major Nelson Nov 4 This Week in Xbox post and tapped play to video in Newsify reader, No error; just a black rectangle with rotating white arc line. Newsify reader has played previous Major Nelson posts.
