    Works fine for me at any speed as long as speed is selected before starting it all though this only happens on the US server the EU server seems to be better even if speed is changed while playing.

    Other wise great bigger than youtube which is nice :)..

    you cant change speed on the fly while playing. it should stop the movie, load the new url and you have to click play

    Can you do a different volume control? Those are really small and hard to use. Something with a slider link on youtube would be better. This one you have to try and click just in the right place, instead of being able to adjust the volume on the fly with a slider so you can get it just right.

    Also the top link isnt streaming very well, stuttering every 5 secs or so to re-buffer. even tho I'm on 10mb broadband.

    Looks good , although the player looks a bit small .

    Hope the TPU servers have enough space for all the videos that will be posted .

    Streaming seems to be okay now. Must have just been busy. Full screen mode looks good and scales well but stutters? :confused:, the normal size window is fine though. Just needs a volume slider ;)

    triprift: can you describe "does not run" a bit more?

    alexp999: check if switching the player to low detail in full screen helps

    no nothing is for free .. all dl servers combined cost like 1500 usd per month

    tpu web stuff itself uses like 50 gigs tops. the downloads are another 120 gb or so extra. thats hdd space .. traffic wise we are going through about 50T++ per month with downloads and everything included
    DaMulta says thanks.

    yes it does stop it each time. but at the time at least EU servers seemed to deal with the changing better.

    Like some other said the volume is all though it did not bother me. Good Job :).
  24. wolf2009 Guest

    WOW :eek::eek: , you must have a real good job (judging from your awesome coding ability) to pay that much every month or you must be making a lot from TPU .
