@soup_menu: Looks good. I think generally "Watched" status in things counts over 95%. It could still continue playing when you tap it like usual, but generally if you stop a video 95% of the way through then you are done with it.
@soup_menu: Thanks for getting back to me! Interesting use of the API, a shame they don't surface the related game data. Good to hear there will be an original content only option, and also it would be good to see a "watched" setting!
Just chiming in to say that I bloody love this app. I was using a setup before whereby I used downcast and the GB premium RSS feeds, but having the ability to pick out the quality of a video when I download it is great (mobile quality Jar Times just make sense!).
A quick question: Do you think there will ever be a way to view the GB live shows? The Twitch app is such a shit show, I never manage to get that working properly. Is there like a Twitch API you can access?
Also, I see in the About section that you use the GiantBomb API. What for? I assumed that the videos are just from the RSS feeds? If you are hooked into the API, would it be possible to have a link from the video to the "Related" game. It would be good to watch a Video, then link to the game page (in chrome ideally ;-) ).
Any chance of a category which is basically everything apart from trailers? I don't really watch trailers that often, so I open the app and then check Features, Quick Looks, Subscriber etc.
LASTLY, is there a way to put a tick next to a video when it has been watched? I watch all GB videos on my iPad and iPhone using this app, and a little tick (synced with iCloud!) would be really handy when I just want to chuck on some GB I haven't seen yet.
Anyway I got some DLC to show my appreciation! Also, I have been running iOS7 since the launch of Beta 2, and so far the Video Buddy has performed admirably!
Edit: That was a lot of requests, I've just gotten another DLC!
I can't even think straight. I'm utterly speechless. I always felt I knew like 5% of who Ryan was, and I just wish I could have known him more.
My deepest condoloences go out to everyone who know him, and especially his new wife. Know this. Not a week has gone by in the last 5 years where Ryan didn't make me smile. My life was a brighter place because of him, and I will miss him.
How do the guys go on? I can't even begin to imagine the weight on the shoulders of whoever will sit in that chair next...
Hey guys, I know this is super weird, but I picked on of the ERs back when they showed them, and I can't remember which one.
I have an extended DIY project coming up, and fancied having an ER on in the background and "the other" DP one is the only one I have not seen.
I just can't for the life of me remember which one I watched. One thing I DO remember is that in the one I watched, the guys (whoever they were) found an unlimited machine gun, and I seem to remember hearing on a bombcast that the other pair didn't get this.
Hey guys, I just want to say, that if you are new to Dota (perhaps because of one Bradly Shoemaker) that you should definitely hop into the GiantBomb chat channel.
I had only played against bots, and I joined the channel yesterday and got into a few newbie matches. There were some experts in there too who were super helpful and gave me some good tips on how to play etc.
Definitely a good place to go before digging into matchmaking!
