@MB: Thanks again for the recommendation.

@soup_menu: Any timeline on iPhone 5 support? If it's coming at all. It's fantastic on my iPad though.

Streaming if I'm on my PC, otherwise I use the amazing Whiskey Media Video Buddy by Giant Bomb's own It's available on iOS and Android for free...I use the Android version. In addition, I sometimes will watch longer Quick Looks and what not through my Roku on a giant ass HDTV.

Wow, thanks for this. I had no idea this was a thing.

Ah, fair enough. I'm quite lucky in the connection department. I usually get about 60 down and 25 up.

Sure...just go ahead and make me hate you. Why not? :D

I'll try my best :P

@mithhunter55: How do you do that? Is it "Open Network"?

@TepidShark: You should try Rivet. Development of it has stopped now, so it's free. It still works great in my experience.

I download to my HDD, VLC Media Player is my friend.

I tend to do that for longer things like TNT (although I'm an MPlayerX guy) but I don't have a big enough HDD to store all the quick looks for when I finally decide to watch them.

I'm using Progressive now and it works fine. I don't usually skip portions of a video, so scrubbing is not essential for me. I always get the feeling that videos on YouTube lose some quality, even if they are at 720p. It maybe some personal bias, though.

I might try that then. I don't usually skip around either and I'm all for higher video quality.

I've only just recently become a premium member, and have been fiddling around with HTML5 on low quality. I'm not really sure that it's any better (or worse) than progressive or streaming though. I have a pretty lousy internet connection so I usually let the video load for a while before playing it anyway.

There's Streaming, Progressive, HTML5, and YouTube. I've just been sticking to YouTube for now because it's what I already know but I'm willing to change if there are specific advantages I'm unaware of.

So how do you watch?

Thanks

@Djnuttty: Indeed, quite a coincidence. :D
