thoughts on “The Week In Bike #47 – 5 December 2014”
Talking about slow n’ buggy Flash video app, what’s the deal with this video player that you’ve started using? It’s slow and buggy. What’s the problem with YouTube or Vimeo that you used to use?
They can’t run pre-roll ads. YouTube sort of can, but it’s not a financial tenable proposition. If you’d like the videos to be back on YouTube/Vimeo, feel free to let me know how much you’d be willing to pay.
The lack of other options doesn’t make the vzaar player any less rubbish.
I understand that YouTube an Vimeo don’t pay well but with the current player I can’t even watch your show. Not sure what the model is with the current sponsor but the playback freezes about 7 seconds in to the ad. I assume it doesn’t count as an impression unless you get the whole play…
If it helps I bought a Ralpha shirt!
Man, I can completely understand the commercial imperatives. However, if the player doesn’t play, it kinda defeats the purpose, right? So, yes, by all means, lets find a nice way so you can be compensated while I get to enjoy your videos.
slow n’buggy ? well not on my computer at least. Let me right click on the video to check what player it is … shit, this have just crashed the flash plugin.
It was cool when everything was up on youtube but I guess it doesn’t always work out this way.
Thanks cosmo for these brilliant videos ! I guess if I should pay for cycling videos, I’d rather pay for yours (well, I don’t know how much thought …) How about a thing where people can donate whatever they want ?
Still getting the sound / vision creeping out of sync. Around a 2 second lag by the end.
