We've rolled out a big site update this week, and while there's not a lot of changes on the surface, there's one big thing that we think is worth noting - we now support high definition videos (720p) in our video player.
We probably won't bother converting our old videos to allow an HD viewing mode, but for pretty much any new video going forward from today, if we can make a nice-looking HD version, you'll be able to stream it directly to your browser. Obviously, it will consume more bandwidth.
We're still working on the interface and a few other bits and pieces (like the ability to automatically load HD as a default), but for now if you see a little 'HD' button in the bottom right corner of the player, you can click it and it will load the HD version of the trailer.
Here are some samples:
There's been a few other minor changes - improved support for social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter (if you see a 'Like' button, feel free to hit it - it really helps us out), some minor performance improvements (more coming soon), improved site searching (via the new 'Search' module at the top right), related videos now show at the end of a video play, and a swag of bug fixes.
We are also about to launch a new credit-card based auction system that will allow advertisers to bid directly on key ad space in our download section. From as little as $10/day you can have your product or service put in front of thousands of gamers, so if you or your company is interested, contact us
for more information.
As always, interested in any and all feedback that people have.
