What happened to the quick look?

#1 Posted by Castiel (2527 posts) -

It was supposed to be up like 2 hours ago but there is nothing... why?

After a long boring day and cycling through cold, hard, rain I was really looking forward to it. :´(

#2 Posted by dancingpolkabear (201 posts) -

Same thing happened to the Hell Yeah! quick look

#3 Posted by Cincaid (2953 posts) -

@Castiel: Something probably went wrong with the automatic upload (it happens sometimes). It's only 8.22am at the Giant Bomb office, so give them some time to bring it up.

That, or some crazy conspiracy thing!

Uhhh I like that... but what could it be?

Also I'm a complete idiot when it comes to the different timezones, so you are completely right, they are probably gonna fix it as soon as possible.

Alex tweeted yesterday that the Fable-The Journey trailer took 14 times to upload. Maybe there is a technical problem

It is burning in hell with the FIFA 13 quick look.

China is displeased by certain comments made by Ryan about its lack of caring, so the ghost of Chairman Mao cursed the Quick Looks as an act of revenge. Also, something something Illuminati.

The illuminatus.

No, it's the upload process that failed. You'll need to wait until someone at the office, most likely top men, fixes it. It's still early in the americas.

Maybe it's stuck in the upload queue behind the Orcs Must Die 2 QL.

They probably had to have a meeting with some higher ups at CBS about a meeting they were planning for later in the day to discuss the possibility of a meeting about taking a vote on uploading the video.

They decided not to do it due to how much content they were already putting out

They are still getting settled into the new offices. Give them time.

Ha ! Ha ! Don't think they will ever get used to the new office. Only 9 QLs in September so far - really disappointing, man.

This. I honestly think there is some truth to that. Guess that´s what you get working for a bigger company: a load of horseshit meetings.

On a more serious note: Bring on the DOA QL! I want to see this game so bad after hearing about it from Jeff!!

Hey all,

We're testing out a new production pipeline to get videos and archives up on the site faster. You may have noticed that the archives for live shows sometimes hit less than an hour or so after the stream. We're trying to make it so that happens all the time, but unfortunately computers suck. Sometimes sync is weird, sometimes the audio is too low, sometimes stuff just explodes. Unfortunately, we can't (and don't want to) stop producing videos while we tackle the hiccups, so you guys are seeing it happen live. Our old (and current) process turns around a 2 hour live show in about 6-8 hours, we're trying to trim it down to under an hour. We're trying to do the same thing with Quick Looks so we spend less time processing them and more time filming them. In theory, everything should work! In reality, well, I think we're pretty close.

Thanks for the patience, China may not care, but Drew and I do.

But the Hell Yeah! Quick Look remains in limbo.

#47 Posted by wjb (1636 posts) -

I know I sound like a dick and maybe it's pointless to even ask, but can we stop these threads whenever a QL is not posted at the scheduled time? Clearly it's technical difficulties. Every single time it's technical difficulties. Technology is unreliable sometimes. They didn't forget because they already recorded the footage, and I doubt they want to spend 30-60 minutes for nothing.

I like watching QLs as much as everyone else and sometimes I even look forward to a few, but at least give it a day before you start worrying.

#48 Edited by TheDudeOfGaming (6078 posts) -

First off, rain is awesome. Secondly the quicklook is Dead or Alive. Or wait, it's up now. Now I feel stupid. Leave me to my shame!

Except for a wibbly-wobbly September, it seems we're on the way to a normal amount of Quick Looks (about 340, by this chart) when the year is over. Maybe minus ten or twenty, but it seems fairly normal. So all in all, h8rz go die!
