  • OS: Windows 7
  • Browser: Chrome
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • Type Of Player: progressive
  • Adblock: Off
  • Specific Problem: Progressive videos have to buffer the entire length of the video before starting.

As you might imagine, this is a bit of a bummer when watching the longer videos. I'll just download them until the video player is fixed up, but I'd like to be able to watch videos on the site.

I watch the Youtube video to sidestep this problem but I thought I'd add a report too.

Just thought I'd add mine to the list too. It's been happening since yesterday I think and it doesn't seem to matter if I have Adblock enabled or disabled.

I'd noticed that this the past couple of days actually. Strange one. I think the NCAA QL was the first one I noticed.

thanks guys, looks like something changed in our encoding right at the strider video. We'll take a look and possibly re-encode as needed.
