Hah well we snuck it out the door on Friday just before the long weekend.
Now remember, we're still in the phase of public beta testing, so there's going to be lots of bugs and kinks to work out as we transition over to the new system. We're always goign to keep the old one available to you, so you'll have tonnes of time to get used to the new.
Few things to remember:
-The point of the new system is to provide you a viewing experience like other video sites. THe videos will be displayed directly on the page, meaning instead of linking to foreign videos, we encourage you to upload them directly to the site. You can now host your videos here, embed them wherever you want and watch them over and over.
-We're not set on anything. Please discuss your opinions, and we'll tweak things to work better.
-There are a bazillion old videos in every format you can possibly imagine. Things like the thumbnails won't make sense until more people start uploading videos directly to the site. We can't steal your videos from remote locations, as this probably isn't legal. :) So please, for your new vids give the new upload a try!
-Try watching a few vids... don't hesitate to use the "Load Random Video" module and browse around for what is there. We need to try and see how our backend can handle the viewing, so browse around and consume!
Bottom line here, please give the new system a chance. We feel that its a way better method of viewing videos, but it requires you guys to upload them and give it a try!
Also, keep that feedback coming, it helps us make everything work perfectly!
