Getting the same "HTML5 videos not playing" error on Firefox 64.0.2 on macOS High Sierra. Switching to Progressive allows videos to load.

On Windows 10 with the same version of Firefox... same problem for the past few days.

There's also a stupid amount of black space between the top of the screen and the video, which seems to be a bug since nothing else is aligned like that.

This is because the thumbnail they used is letterboxed... and is a good example of why they shouldn't use these images to take up the entire home page.

I agree with SO MANY of the sentiments in this thread.

I had no idea the site was launching so soon and feel like the beta barely happened. I guess they were only focusing on bugs but they should have taken some time to account for and implement feedback on the actual usability.

This is a great example.

I feel bad because I know these guys worked hard and actually care about the site but... it's not great.

The logo for GB has never been the coolest but it does look like a logo for a web comic now so that's not good.

And also this.

@midsummerstorm: How were you able to debiggen the video in your screenshot?

Maybe I haven't dug deep enough to find out yet but I was wondering if there's any way to debiggen videos and also disable autoplay...

The big orange premium user block should really go. I've actually used ABP to hide it at this point.

I wish you could change the order of 'Continue Watching', 'Latest', and 'Popular Videos'. In fact, I'd like the ability to hide 'Continue Watching' and Popular Videos'. I only really want to know what the newest released videos are.

This should definitely be a thing.

Also, a carousel for articles would be nice... As rarely as it might be updated, I feel like there should be written content somewhere on the home page.

I have never enjoyed reading white text on a screen and I'm not about to start. We print black text on white paper when we make books and newspapers for a reason.

Besides the fact that paper is meant to have text printed on it... When you're on a website where the background is mostly white then your monitor is throwing a lot of light at you and people often find that strenuous on the eyes and more difficult to read.

BUT I absolutely see where you're coming from; if it were reversed and they decided to remove the dark version I would have been very put off.

I'm not entirely sure if this is a bug... I'm just assuming it's not by design. The new overlay that appears when you hover over a stopped video has a big scroll bar in the middle of it.

There's nothing to scroll through and it just looks kind of bad. I'm on the latest version of Firefox.

Honestly, just from watching the UPF, I have no idea... but they look similar to something like the Office Master OM5.

@unastrike said he might post a link to them somewhere but I haven't seen it.

I also agree that the new set looks rad.

Super Hot is pretty awesome but a little short. If the value would hold anyone back from playing it then it'd be great for it to be free.

I already own it though so my vote went to Shadow Warrior.
