  • OS: Windows 7
  • Browser: Chrome (beta channel)
  • RAM: 12 GB
  • Type Of Player: HTML5
  • Adblock: On
  • Location: Central Florida
  • Specific Problem: Cannot watch videos due to buffering problems. Attempting to download them results in sub-300kb/s speeds. Need to pause and reload the entire page to make it through a video as pausing and playing does nothing.

Just to note, I've almost been able to watch all of the Pikmin 3 QL. I've needed to pause and refresh a couple of times, but by god, it's nearly finished.

@rorie: Will do Matt. Thanks for the response.

The problem isn't the browser, it's the new CDN they're using Akamai. I do use the HTML5 player - it doesn't help.

I've tried that also. I typically can't get more than 200kb/s when downloading videos, which explains why I can't stream them either. I have a 10Mbit connection that isn't being utilized by the CDN Giant Bomb is now using.

This entire year I have not been able to watch a single video. I'm a subscriber and unless I catch what you guys are streaming on Twitch, I might as well just write off the content. Videos never play more than a few seconds without stopping and stuttering. Pausing and trying to replay does nothing and I have to refresh the page to get the video to play again.

I love your content. I want to watch your videos. What can I do to fix this?

I wrote Jeff about them on his Tumblr and sent him a picture. I ended up buying all four and drinking them. They're all kind of standard creme sodas, though the vanilla one is certainly the worst.
