Almost 100% of the time. The only time I watch video on the site is when a video is so new, they haven't uploaded it to YouTube yet. Even with the improved video player, which is leaps and bounds beyond what it used to be, it's still nowhere near as good as plain ol' YouTube.
Edit: Also, the subscription feature of YouTube is a lifesaver because I have a daily dose of videos not just from Giant Bomb, but from all over the place as well. It's really easy for me to consume many different types of video instead of just one.
Only when I'm at work.
I wonder why the federal government would ban a site called Giant Bomb. Go figure.
No really, all video game sites are blocked besides NeoGAF. I bet there are GAF guys in the IT department or something that left that as a loophole. Reading GAF is unfortunate.
I download premium videos and I watch quick looks and other stuff on the site using the youtube player because that runs better on my internet for whatever reason. I never go to youtube and watch giantbomb videos unless its fan made stuff like animated bombcasts or shit like that.
I used to watch GB's videos all the time on the actual website, but when it took like 30 minutes to buffer a 30 minute video, I said screw it. Same with downloading TNT's, that would take up to 8 hours at times which was craziness that I just went to Youtube for a lot of it which is kind of sad. :(
Kind of not sure why I am exactly paying...?
@kerned: The YouTube app was unusable when I first used it (whatever video I played first was the only video that would load even though I could browse and pick other videos) but it's perfect now, especially with a phone in control of it so you don't have to use the dumb alphabetic search engine that's also on the PSN.
It's just really easy to appreciate being able to stream videos on my TV and get a better picture of how I might actually be looking at the game. But I'm also not a PC gamer, so that adds to me being less compelled by looking at their videos on my computer.
Used the youtube player on the old site but haven't had a need for it on this one. I had an issue with the old player where I couldn't jump ahead in a video (in order to resume play) even though it was set to "streaming". Now I don't use the youtube player at all.
Before the redesign, I used the android Whiskey Media app to download videos and watch them later. Now, however, there are less resolutions available on that app (for which I blame the changes in the API), so I don't use it so often and visit the site (or just skip the content)...
