    I love the irony of people. One person comments 9/11 is funny and downvoted. The next guy makes fun of 9/11 and get upvoted.

      I'm not sure that's irony.

    So far the trailers have left me thinking that this show will be total shit. But this trailer makes me think that there is a chance that it might actually be alright. I'll have to at least give the pilot episode a shot.

      From what everyone who has seen the series has sad (and that Burnie reiterated on Monday's RT Podcast), it is a very difficult show to cut a trailer for. Because it is weird as heck and all over the place and really, really good when you have the whole picture. Miles left a really in depth comment on the subreddit about it, about how he wasn't very excited about it but then got to watch a couple of episodes, and it is now one of his favorite productions.


      Point is, this is going to be a weird show. So definitely give it a chance.

      Saw EP 1-4 last night at the premiere and I'll say this: the show is nearly impossible to cut a trailer for without giving away way too much. The first episode has a lot of groundwork to lay and questions to ask, but if I was given the opportunity I would've binged episodes 1-6 last night.

      The choice to use actors outside of RT allowed me to disconnect from the actors as employees I know from podcasts and LP's (a slight problem I had with Lazer Team) and the 80's sci-fi absurdity floating around a very strong central story arc had me hooked. Definitely looking forward to the rest.

    PLEASE bring back the old video player!!

    The volume & tracking bar are too similar and therefore confusing. I keep changing the volume trying to restart frozen videos.

    This player has insane lag & freezes regularly.
    Upon starting a video, or playing then pausing the video, there are 2-3 seconds where the video is frozen before the image begins tracking.

    I can't disable the playlist autoplay.

    If I try to scroll the page before it begins playing, the scroll is kicked back to the top in spite of what I, the user, explicitly told the page to do (sometimes even when it's not playing, too).

    Audio appears to be fine, oddly enough....

      For one, how can you confuse the audio bar and the tracking bar? The audio bar only appears if you hover over it, and it has an animation.

      I had severe lag with the previous player, but since it got updated, it hasn't lagged for me once.

      For your third point, I don't know what to say, because I have no idea what that problem even looks like.

      You don't need to, it gives you like a solid ten seconds to not go to the next video, just click the x on the popup.

      You contradicted yourself at the end here (or were redundant) by saying first that it kicked you to the top of the page if you scrolled before the video started, then followed up by saying it only happens sometimes if the video isn't playing. I have not experienced this, and it sounds like an extremely minor inconvenience if it only happens once.

      Of course the audio is fine.

      What my point is, JUST BECAUSE IT SUCKS FOR YOU DOESN'T MEAN EVERYONE HAS THE SAME PROBLEMS. In fact, two people with the SAME pc bought from the SAME distributor with the SAME specs for the SAME price will have DIFFERENT problems. It happens. I understand that there seem to be a large number of people who are having issues with the new player, however, it is most likely just a fraction of the total users. Not everything is going to work for everybody always, not even on consoles, which is their major selling point.

      1) The volume bar appears whenever I go near the beginning of the tracking bar (which I was doing repeatedly because the beginning of the videos were freezing). I have to be pixel-precise (down to ~6) to make sure I'm clicking the beginning of the video without activating the volume bar. As a person who works with UI for a living, I know that this absurdly close proximity is against user-friendly design.

      2) The lag and freezing upon playback-start/resume makes the video thoroughly unwatchable. For the first time in all my years of watching Rooster Teeth-affiliated videos, I felt I had zero choice but to go to Youtube instead (well, other than looking up old RT podcasts when they stopped working here).

      3) You don't know what which thing looks like? You didn't indicate what you're talking about and the context to which you seem to be replying gives me little clue.

      4) Clicking the X does NOT stop the auto play. I clicked all over the little "up next" overlay, but the X was the only control with which to interact; despite 10ish separate instances of trying to use the X, the autoplay NEVER stopped. I either have to navigate before the page does automatically, or hit the back button and pause the video I just watched. Forcing a navigation the user did not invoke or approve is also bad UI design.

      5) I never contradicted myself; I was talking about separate scenarios. When it is in the process of auto-playing (beginning to play, as noted in my OP), and I try to scroll, it kicks me to the top. If I pause it (and it's not playing, as noted in the OP), it sometimes kicks me up even then. Basically, I haven't found a scenario (regardless of whether the video is playing) where I can be sure I'm actually able to scroll the page and stay where I decided to stay.


      Your bit about similar machines doesn't contribute to this conversation in any way. We're talking about the video player embedded in the web page, not hardware configurations.


      Side note: just found a bug unrelated to the video player. The redo command isn't working in these comment boxes.

      Weird, none of the problems you speak of happen to me. That being said, I do agree they should let you stop the playlist, simply because it covers up part of the video. Some of the older ones I like to go back and watch have punchlines covered up by it.

      To be fair, things have changed considerably since this post. It became vaguely usable several days ago. I suspect they fixed catastrophic issues with fullscreen and many other bugs in a single release.

      The most frustrating time was just a day or two after this post when the videos started jumping back and forth in their playback. Even if I could deal with the stuttering and freezing, watching the videos linearly was completely impossible. It wasn't until the aforementioned fixes that I could even hope to watch anything.


      After the fixes, I was initially using Firefox, but ended up in Chrome because it offered a slightly more forgivable experience. Both were mostly usable, but both still had their issues (at least the videos were tracking again, and I could pause the playlist). I've been on the YouTube channel for a couple days, so I don't know how Chrome is performing at the moment. I'm about to find out about Firefox, though, because the latest Chrome update completely trashed my entire browsing experience (middle click is gone within webpages, for one!! Google made amateur decisions in this release.)

    Eh, I'm still not feeling it for this show. I'm hoping I'm wrong and this turns out to be really funny, but for now I'm still going in with very low expectations. The actors themselves seem funny, but none of the promotional material has yet to make me even chuckle (aside from Burnie eating a sandwich), not something I expect coming from RT. But anyway, I still hope it's good.

    They need a mod more superlative than "cool" to adequately describe this trailer (and a whole buttload of other RT content).
