  1. That’s a question everyone is going to ask themselves in the streaming media business who isn’t running Microsoft’s new Silverlight.

  3. …holy crap. Look, Scoble, I like your blog but you’re everywhere… I just hit the freaking “random arrow” up in the top right corner and here I am… your blog’s like that insanity maze where you open a door and you’re staring at your back across the room. At least you’re not a cat…

  5. It keeps freezing while it’s “Loading xx%” – is that a feature?, if it is then I’m glad youtube doesn’t have it.
    Oh yeah – and what the other peeps said about the full screen button :)
    I had a look at the Studio6 DIVX site – I haven’t seen videos load that slowly since 28.8k dial up.
    Phill – The advertising on youtube will likely me “in video” so bigger video means bigger ads.

  7. And Joost defaults to full-screen, of course. Though all Joost wants to play me is the Swimsuits Monthly channel or whatever its called…

  9. Robert, if you mouse over the EPG, you will see a little V logo appear. Click on it for the menu. There you will be able to change the display language. Of course we can’t yet change the language spoken…

    The trick here is that
    . our full screen TV is fully customizable for our customers, it’s interactive (new versions coming up), in great full screen quality.
    . everything is managed with an easy and intuitive back office, relying heavily on drag n drop.

  11. I only rediscovered vpod.tv recently Robert when Loic Le Meur used the service to cover TechTalk Menorca at Martin Versarsky’s farm. Loic is also using it for his own ‘tv channel’ – http://loic.tv/

    What I love about it is being able to double click on an embedded video (as on Loic’s blog) to open it up full screen. Click to pause. Click to restart. Double click to pop it back down to blog size.

  13. Youtube full screen? Did you forget to click the full-screen button Robert? The button is at the bottom right of the player. Maybe it is Flash 9 only or something?

  15. The stage6 divx site does it, and dailymotion does a better job of it than youtube.

    Now that youtube has gone to Google though I suspect they’re a lot more advertising minded and if the video is full screen, then how are you going to see the ads?

    I don’t think that’s cynical, it’s just how advertising execs work. I work for an offshoot company that focuses on search but our parent company in the same building is a design/marketing agency and they’d do the exact same thing.
