I saw the HD Disappearance thread also, and thought it might be related somehow. Thanks for the detective work Soup!

For the record, I can’t download just high quality or low quality videos either (tried Million Dollar Abby 2)

Hey I 've just started having an issue when trying to load any of the Latest videos on the Apple TV. When I click on the latest tab it goes to a white screen and exits to the main Apple TV screen. I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling but it still does the same thing. It only seems to be the latest videos tab, others seem mostly ok.

I can confirm I am having the same issue on the latest non-beta tvOS.

I think it has to be related to the missing HD versions of the all the latest videos. Hopefully its fixed soon.

The beta OS doesnt fix it either so I dont think its an OS issue. @not_much_chop might be on to something regarding the video versions as it only affects certain parts of the app.

Hopefully this isnt buried in the thread somewhere I missed, but will the iOS version see an update for the iphone x display? Still my favorite way to watch the duders but the decrease in resolution is disappointing. Thanks!

Since I upgraded to a device with 3D touch, I notice that the video controls keep appearing without any interaction from myself.

Has anyone else experienced this? I only see this behaviour with the Giant Bomb Video Buddy app; YouTube and other video apps are fine.

Really love this app, but it seems the new API is hiding some items. Can't find Metal Gear Scanlon in search at all and just searching endurance run only gives one video. I hope we see an update soon!

I’ve noticed this too and came here to discuss/report. I found when searching for VinnyVania it turns up zero results, but searching for “curse” (Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse) brings up the Castlevania 3 episodes. Seems like the search doesn’t like results you get via searching “show“ names.

So for the Persona 4 ER, for now, just type in persona. You can also try something like searching for ”part 50” for a more specific search. Actually, you can search “part 0” and get most series to show up! Just some workarounds for now.

As a heads up to whoever is listening, I’d gladly donate significantly for an updated Video Buddy!

@griffinmills:

Yeah! Last night as I was trying to find things I did get some (I did Dracula for Dracula's Curse) and started putting stuff in lists. Metal Gear Scanlon is the tough one that I've not been able to find much of unless I go all the way back in the "Premium" List. I've only been able to get "Rising" for MG Rising. I'll try the 0 trick though. Agreed that Shows seem to be what breaks it.

I really hope it gets updated, I'm on an old iPad 2 for a tablet device so GBTV doesn't work since I can only get iOS 9 and below stuff :\ I really love the list feature. I'd also gladly donate because it's a great app!

Doing some fiddling and searching for Metal Gear Scanlon I found that you can find most of them with the following search string “style”

V - part

4 - part

2 - part

and

3: part

for MGS3. Note you need the colon instead of the dash for 3. If you just put a 3 it doesn’t work.

The original MGS, though, I’ve yet to find a good short hand search. Stuck with ”part 0” for now. It’s kind of interesting to go to the website and look at MGS1 and all the episodes are just named “part xx” instead of their full names.

Bug (?): I noticed that the quick look for Darksiders III was missing in both Latest and Quick Looks on iPad but it was visible only my iPhone. Then on iPad I tried unchecking the hide trailers option in settings and now it's visible again (This option was unchecked on my iPhone all along.). So seems there is a bug where regular videos are mislabeled as trailers ? No idea if that's a backend issue at GB or not.

@void: great catch, it is also hiding the bombcast video feed, both regular and premium versions, when “hide trailers” is checked. I’ve noticed hidden or missing videos, very rarely, over the years using Video Buddy but never thought to uncheck the trailers option and usually found them when looking at other categories.

Also, weirdly, the quick look for DS3 doesn’t show up under the quick looks category at all. Tack on that both Bombcast videos are the same length and, like last week, neither is marked as Premium anymore. These may all be site bugs and not Video Buddy specifically.

Has the app been removed from iOS? All I can find is GBTV which doesn’t support Chromecast. I accidentally uninstalled video buddy

The last couple of days I've just been getting "An error occurred. Tap to retry." and no videos are longer listed.

EDIT: And now it works again for some reason.

spoke too soon! app opens fine now and videos play but timestamps do not load – they display at —:— and the seek bar stays at 0. running iPadOS 13.2. could be a quicktime issue? i’m no expert.

sorry for the bother
