@smallville123: I think the browser volume control mirroring is flakier than app volume control mirroring? I don't know. I get bit by that on the YouTube app occasionally.

@smallville123: That's a problem between the device you used to start chromecasting and the chromecast. They try to sync volume between casting device and display device. When it works, it's pretty cool that your phone's volume controls can be used to control chromecast volume. But a bit too frequently, it gets confused and the volume changes dramatically. I wish I knew of an option to stop trying to send volume signals from my casting device, but I haven't found one yet.

Hey guys, I'm sorry if this has been covered somewhere else, but a quick search couldn't find it...

What happened to the ability to chromecast from the ios player? It's a real frustration that I can't stream premium stuff as easily as the stuff that makes it to youtube.

It used to be in the player with an icon. Then, the icon was removed but you could still trigger it if you pressed in the spot the icon used to be. (Which was almost awesome. Felt like I was getting something over on /the Man/.) But now that it's been gone for real for a while... Is this the intention going forward? Are there plans to bring the chromecast button back?

(I get that this isn't a bug, but I haven't seen a better place for this through the forum search. Sorry if I missed a better spot.)

We're having problems Chromecasting. The video starts out ok, but a minute or two in and it stutters the rest of the time. Pausing it to let it buffer doesn't seem to help. We're seeing this with both Gen1 and Gen2 chromecasts. We don't have a Chromecast Ultra to try... I believe we started seeing this around the same time as the 1080/60 test stream. I know early This Is The Run episodes were fine, and later ones weren't.

We don't think it's our network as the video streams are fine on our laptops and phones...

Under the video menu, the dropdown has links for show pages. When you click the link for Blue Bombin', you're directed to http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/blue-bombin/, which 404's.

http://www.giantbomb.com/shows/blue-bombin/ works.

It's weird, for some categories, it's videos, and for others it's shows. Is there a rule for when it's one or the other?

I'm having problems with itunes. I'm trying http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/feed/hd/3/, https://www.giantbomb.com/videos/feed/hd/3/, and https://www.giantbomb.com/videos/feed/hd/10/ but I'm seeing the error video. I've tried deleting my saved credentials and I'm getting the prompt again, but putting in the credentials that are valid in my browser isn't helping... I see in the first post that people have been seeing errors that seem to have to do with the file extension, but I don't think that's impacting me. It's treating the feeds correctly, and it appears to be trying to download the url from the feed, we're just getting the wrong video back...

I'm also running into this problem. I typically use google to log in, but I doubt that's relevant. My username/password can log me in to the site, but isn't letting me auth through to see a premium feed.

I'm pretty sure the ballot box is resumes@whiskeymedia.com, but I'm not sure when the next election is....

@JackiJinx: Sure!  Hell, if I were you, I'd vote on making yourself staff...  It seemed to work well enough for me...
