Is there anyway you can make it possible to skip a video without having to refresh?


I could add a link but it would do essentially the same thing. I don't want to make it an automated thing since users might be in the middle of writing a quick comment or leaving an opinion when it switches to the next video.

Just a heads up, I've marked almost 300 videos for re-encode, mostly from this year's VCA. These are videos which we do not have ssim data for and were only given single pass treatment. Once the server takes action the videos will disappear from streaming. Derobert has drastically increased the processing power available for encoding so this should not take more than a day, if that. I will make sure that new uploads will still be given priority encoding during this time.

I daresay for those of us living in the 20th century, subsisting on nothing but dial-up, you have sort of answered our prayers. I can now watch AMVs without worrying about how the heck I'm going to download a 40-100MB file on a 56K modem.

It's also possible you have inadvertantly discovered a loophole in corporate Internet security software, which recently decided to prevent me from accessing the server holding all the AMVs, but NOT this site (which it used to block as well). :up: I'm not going to hold my breath, but if the streaming does work from behind my company's Net security, well...I'll be one extremely happy AMVer, because right now I'm living in exile with only occasional quick glimpses of freedom snatched at the peril of wearing out my welcome on a friend's high-speed Internet connection. :o

I like the way this was implemented, too, very good fit for this site! Thank you to everyone who worked to put this into place!!

A day which will live in INFAMY!! hehe :)

Thank you for your hard work and efforts guys.

I propose the next step is to get rid of quick comments and switch to nico nico style comments ^_^

BTW for someone like myself who is in the process of re-encoding old vids to H264. Should I hold off on uploading those to the org. Basically I don't want to screw things up or create any hassles while you guys have this outstanding encoding queue.

Last night I was checking out the streaming feature on my laptop, but when I logged in just now, I noticed that it was prompting me to leave star ratings for them! While I saw somewhere that said you *can* leave ratings on videos, I was not aware that we *HAD TO* leave star ratings. As I did not even watch the full videos, I feel very much against this.

Just curious, how fast is the encoding going now? I'd heard before that it was slow, but just in the last day I've had 3 of my old videos, in the 3.73-3.84 range get encoded. Was quite happy since I first thought I'd have to be waiting quite a while on those!

I agree it's rather unproductive to require ratings, but considering the site does require ratings when you download it kinda makes sense they'd require ratings for streaming. Just give them a 1 and move on, after all they apparently weren't good enough to watch all the way through.

@Outlawed:
Go ahead, all of the videos I marked for re-encode last night were done by the time I woke up this morning. It would also give me the chance to make sure delete requests and re-uploads are being handled properly by the new code.

@Otohiko:
Derobert added two other servers to the encoding process which added four more significantly faster processor cores. Each of those cores spits out encodes at the same rate as all of Nago's cores combined so processing power is currently 500% that of last week.

And I just added two more cores. I bet we'll have 3k videos done before I go to bed tonight.

Awesome video streaming is awesome :up: I was also going to complain about the 30 sec thing, but the more I hit the random button, the less I see it as a problem for me. One of the other things I noticed is how much romance/sentimental vids I ran into so far compared to the rest, unless that's a coincidence...
