I subscribe to a couple other gaming site's youtube channel and watch their stuff there since GB is the only gaming site i visit regularly. Occasionally i will see a GB video on youtube before seeing it on the site first. Even then i rarely watch it on youtube and instead come here to watch most of the time.
@Breadfan yea, I suppose I should have worded the question a little better, because that's what I meant.
On another note, IDK why I never tried PS3 Media Server before. I fell asleep during the Omikron stream and it's pretty fuckin' dope that I can download the HD version (though it takes a half hour :() and then watch it on my TV in glorious 1080 (or whatever these videos are, 720 I spose).
When I am at work and it is blocked I use youtube as the alternative, but since the new site launch most videos aren't posted until hours (so I'm all ready home) or even days later, took forever to finally watch the A:CM QL a few weeks back, had to watch it at home instead of on company time
I don't watch videos often now that YouTube is subscriber only. (if you want to use the video player on the site, I mean)
The default player on this website sucks, the auto feature is the only one available on streaming and it doesn't work properly. I should get HD quality every time but often I don't. If I switch to progressive at 720P it works fine but then I can't skip ahead.
Pretty gross that YouTube is paywalled now.
Before the redesign, I frequently used Youtube because they were all easily located and accessible. Now though, I just view them straight from the GB site, on either PC/Mac or tablet. Also, for console/TV watching, the Wii U offers a great experience, allowing playing videos on the site and then doing other things (viewing comments, etc.) while the video plays on the TV. If I'm home, that's how I watch GB content.
I think it's been about half-and-half. Once you're already on YouTube it's kind of easy to just get onto the Giant Bomb stuff. I've definitely used YouTube more since the site change-over though. Like a lot of things, the video player here is still going through some teething problems.
A week or so back, the site player wasn't working on iPad (maybe that's fixed now), so I went to YouTube that time. When I'm on PC, I only really go to YouTube if I'm looking for a particular clip (Let's Watch a Pro). For watching full quick looks, unprofessional fridays, etc., I pretty much always view them here.
Always on youtube because the video player on this site is garbage and rarely works.
Preeeeeeetty much, I will often pause videos and just leave them there while I take a study break, do something else and when I come back, sometimes after just a few minutes the player just crashes, youtube works.
