You may have mentioned this before, but have you thought about including a range for the video lengths rather than just a lower bound?

Dude, I cannot express how useful this has been in getting me through my 6 hour revision sessions these past few weeks, having a dumb QL on one half of my page while I write about the issues facing modern accounting on the other has actually made it bearable.

I LOVE this tool. I've been following development of it since you first posted it and it's really evolved. Loving the addition of TNTs, the length min/man selector and the ability to load the results into a YT playlist. :D so cool.

Keep up the amazing work. I've already bookmarked this next to GB and it's my go-to when I need something playing in the background.

This community (and more specifically, you) are the best. Thanks, duder!

Another week, another update. I'm constantly extending the database of videos and now it's time for Unprofessional Fridays.

This time I decided to add one more category for searching, highlights, which are some of the particularly interesting moments that happened on the show.
So, if you need to see Drew's insane PDF documents or hear Jeff reading Space Jam novelization, choose an appropriate Highlight to quickly jump to the right episode of Unprofessional Fridays.

That Wednesday show will be cataloged in the same way.

@szlifier: As a sidenote: somehow exporting 769 QLs to a Youtube playlist doesn't seem to be working as intended? I just got a playlist of 26 videos.

Avatar image for szlifier
#313 Posted by Szlifier (1496 posts) -

@gaff: It's intended. It would take an hour to make that playlist due to a poor API I'm using for YouTube. M3U playlists don't have that limitation.

I've added an option for 80 entries. Still doesn't seem to get all of them.

The biggest joke on GiantBomb is how often the search and chat is being rebuilt, and they still never work consistently.

You should be hired to put this in the site. I use it all the time.

So, hey. It's been a 3-day weekend here in Europe and I spent some of that free time working on a feature, that I wanted to have since live streams were introduced to my site. So here it is:

Timestamps for games and other stuff happening during streams that are listed below the videos are now clickable! Check it out:

Loading Video...

Hint: If you double-click on the video it will go to in-window fullscreen.

So it's all cool, but this is premium content... I can't let anyone watch UPFs and there is no official way to authenticate users. I have a solution to this problem by manually checking your member status and adding the permission to access premium videos on my site.

If you are interested in this feature and you are a Premium Member then PM me with your unique id from this link: http://qlcrew.com/?show_id and I will add you as soon as I can.

This is the best way I can do this right now and I will try to figure out a better, more efficient way.

You monster. You made the Highlights from the live-streams searchable. No more "Which show was that on?". It's 0:41. What have you done!?

is this a place to submit corrections? I was just noticing that Buzz! Quiz World has Ryan, Jeff, Dave, Vinny, and Brad. but Brad is not listed. that's all thanks. New feature looks great! absolutely genius! no worries if you dont get to it.

I've just been going back and watching old content I missed because I wasnt premium before this year. I've just watched all 4 parts of the "Skyrim Marathon Pre-Show" with Dave, Ryan, and guest starring Alexis, Vinny, and Matt Kessler. For some reason this series isnt included in the Live search? I would have never found it VIA your site and I'm just passing this info along so you include it in the site and others can see.

Personally love watching Dave play old PC games and Ryan being there was just the chocolate sauce on my ice cream.

@killdeer: It is on the site, but only in the other section. However, it's not properly exposed and I'm aware of that. There are a lot of wierd, one-time shows and other videos that I already have in the database, but they're not available through search. I will fix that whenever I have time to do so, hopefuly soon. I have to tag them with people and games, so it'll take some work.

#329 Posted by KillDeer (95 posts) -

@szlifier: Oh wow I didnt even realize that the dropdown was there and when I did I thought it modified either the Quick Look / Live selections. Thanks I'll dig around in there and check out the other "Other" videos.

Also if tagging people and games becomes a burden you could try some sort of open tagging system that lets users tag stuff for you and you then can approve it?

Yep, I've added him as soon as I saw the QL.

I've done some work recently. There is a bunch of new content in the Live section, along with better filtering - each category now has it's own list of games and highlights. I'm adding more live videos whenever I can. This section also needs a search box, which will be added soon. It's going to make looking for a specific highlight or game in a stream much easier.

Other than that, I'm adding new QL whenever they come out, so that keeps me engaged with the site on a daily basis. No need to worry about it being abandoned.

When I click on any of the premium videos, they just take me to the main Giantbomb site. Do I need to re-send my premium ID?
