The uniqueness of the site is that it allows the users to really choose the direction of content uploaded to it, rather than having a webmaster say 'you should look at this'. I think by allowing video uploads (and possibly flash in the future?) It gives users the chance to share more diverse content with each other.
I think the best thing for me to do is to allow you guys as much freedom when it comes to adding content as i can, without ruining the experience (ala porn613 being split). If we do have a large majority of users saying they don't want video content i always have it in my power to either take out the code to allow it, or split the site again into a movie613 (that being ALOT of work however).
Shadez: yah i know the autostart=false, but if you set that i'm pretty sure it'll not start until you actully click start. For people who click on videos one by one i'd like it to autostart of the browser/tab has focus.
quasi: i think the slower access time is because we're using a different provider, we used to be on a 100m/bit link, we're now on a 10m/bit link. We do however have a much larger allowance of bandwidth a month (thus being able to offer movie downloads) than we used too. But i think some people will find the site will be a little slower (bandwidth) than it was before. That said the new hardware the box is running on is around 4x faster so page generation is a hell of alot quicker, so those on DSL should find a increase. Maybe if google would hurry up and buy us out for a few billion we'd be able to use a real server farm
pro_junior: are you using the latest version of firefox? Also if you open the wmv file in firefox does it error out or load a internal player? If it loads a external player it should give you a mime-type. I'm all rather new to video uploading so i'm not 100% sure. I think your browser is uploading the video to the site and saying it's text/html and overriding the server in that choice. (when i was doing testing i was getting a similar thing, however the browser was saying the video was a application/bin-hex, which i've added to the accepted mime-types).
