New video player

If you have already tried video streaming via bitlet, you might be interested in this post as well. If you haven't yet, well, this is the time!

A few weeks ago we silently released a new version of our video player, which leverages the new HTML 5 video tag supported by the most recent browsers (such as Firefox 3.5+). This should, eventually, result in a better experience for you.

You can give it a try it by selecting the links underneath each thumbnail in the video section.
As usual, feedback is welcome.

Have fun!

It appears it's just direct links to ogv-files, not torrents.

That's because the applet works in a slightly different way: it still retrieves the video via bittorrent (downloading and seeding at the same time), but it makes it available to the browser as a video stream on your local machine.

So what does this mean? That the server providing the ogv-file downloads through bittorrent and the end user just stream everything from that server?

Oh, now I see. For example http://s3.amazonaws.com/ttv/TheMusicBoy.ogv?torrent provides a torrent file.

Seems like the video streaming doesnt work on chrome/firefox/safari on the mac. Any known issues?
