    I'd love an update on the video playback issues because it still sucks.

    this was a roller coaster of emotions, he got a new camera, was salty because Gavin had a nicer one, we got to see through new camera, he lost new camera...man I need a nap after this

    Now, I know it's terrible that Burnie just broke this beautiful new gift he got... but holy shit that may have been the funniest fuckin' thing I've seen in a while.

    Also, I really doubt Burnie would read this, but I didn't like the "Thanks for putting up with me this week." Self-deprecation seems a little unnecessary for someone whose Vlog we're deciding to watch.

    Can we get a running tally of how much money has been lost to Burnie breaking new tech?

    I thought i was the only one with issues on the site, just the affirmation that there are issues and that they will eventually be worked on is a big +1 from me :)

    I think by now, Rooster Teeth has a rule that says "Don't give any new tech to Burnie, he will break it"

    I feel so bad for you Burnie... you have suck bad luck with tech. sometimes... don't feel too bad though, you're not the worst I know and at least it's stuff you can afford to replace or do without - little consolation when it happens but look at the bright side (I'm sure she's not usually too far away one way or another ;)

    If you watch closely you can literally see Burnie's face get redder and redder from anger XD. Reminds me of when you broke your iphone literally while switching cases for it.

    I'd say you were unlucky, but you have an amazing job, house, family, girlfriend, and car, so it can't be all bad :-)

    I remember a few years ago, I was on a set and the camera team showed up with their camera ( don't remember what it was ) that was about 50,000$. One guy mounted the camera on his tripod but it wasn't steady at all and he left it there. I told him that the camera could fall over because the tripod wasn't well-balanced. He told me in an asshole kind of way: 'Yeah, sure...Like you know more than me about that'......WELL GUESS WHAT!?!? I laughed so much. So the shooting was postponed by a few hours because they had to go get their back-up camera. Karma =)

    Maybe you didn't get the footage, but I bet Gavin did for the next Shenanigans episode. He's such a breaker.

    RIP 4K Camera.  I think Burnie's luck with gadgets is how he learns how to deal with the BS situations he gets into.

    I love watching Burnie's vlogs and getting to see his travels and some of the behind the scenes at RT. I also love that he is so accident prone with his new tech, because he doesn't even try and cover it up. Even when things are not on camera he owns up to it and makes sure we know what happened no matter how embarrassing it might be. Just a genuine guy.

    I'm glad the video streaming is being addressed... especially during first week, it was at the point where I would just wait for things to come out on YT cause I couldn't stream a single thing on the site.


    Can't wait to see what they do with the site.

    Rooster Teeth has gotten large enough that you should really in-house your web-development. The site could really benefit from a full time team behind it.

      We have a full time team.

      Being a developer myself I can say how much of an issue it is to try and work with something that wasn't built right the first time.  It costs so much money in time and resources to rebuild it that if it's not done right you don't want to do it again even though that is often the best option.


      Kudos to the RT Programming team for keeping at it, I'd apply to help but I am; a)  Not American; b)  I bet I'm not good enough to actually help.

    It's okay Burnie. I have noticed a lot of little changes you have made in the code (cause I am nosey) over the past 4 months. I'd rather you take long and get it right than have it today and be riddled with issues.

    Burnie you have the worst luck! First the drone and now your new camera? I hope you get sent a new one or at least be able to fix the broken one. As always an amazing and insightful blog about Rooster Teeth!

    I'm glad to hear you guy will be working on the site. And it's very smart to start with the video portion. I don't know about other people, but that's the most frustrating part of the site for me. I could go at length at with all the trouble I've had watching content. And I did, but I deleted it because otherwise this post would look like a college thesis.


    The community section also needs a lot of love and attention. It's mostly abandoned, outdated, and difficult to navigate. You should at least be able to tell at a glance if there are new posts in any particular section and topic without having to open every single one. And what happened to events? You used to be able to check what conventions RT would be going to and who would be there. Now, who knows?

      They always say if you're asking if there is a specific age to work there that you are too young to work there.

    Ouch! That sucks, Burnie. $900 camera! Just destroyed immediately! That's why you always sandbag your tripod.

    I love listening to you talk Burnie, especially about the inner workings of RT. You're honest and open and explain things that everyone has their worries and doubts about very well. I wouldn't mind one of these every quarter year or something like that. :)

    How does he have footage from the camera before it fell and not during the fall?

      The card probably survived the fall.

      And he might have stopped recording as he stepped away to take his call.

      He probably turned off the camera to answer his phone.
