So the video player we were running on the site was about 10 versions old (not years!). This meant it's compatibility with HTML5, mobile etc was a little dubious at the best of times. Our new player is:
- HTML5 native in modern browsers (should mean much fewer CPU / stability issues that flash causes)
- Supports related videos (click the button below) which we will use to help everyone promote everyone
- Switches between SD and HD fluidly
- Check out the demo video we have grabbed from Switchcars:
We've also updated the image gallery system so that now when you click on the "view HD" link the gallery goes full screen. Browse any image gallery and hit that button to see this feature in action. More to come, hope you enjoy the changes and let us know if you encounter any problems!
