You may notice a few new features got lit up today - specifically age gated videos (yay industry compliance), HD Videos, and yes...ad-supported videos.   We will be using these ads to reduce the cost for the site and they should have a minimal impact on your experience.   I'd like to know what your feedback is on this new service...

Thanks!

Crossposted for maximum feedback...since I've not gotten any. smile

I am boycotting GT now.  I want free content without any ads.  I also want GT to make me a sandwich.

Well, besides the stupid age gate thing (not GT's fault, it's a moronic industry standard that does nothing but be an annoyance), I did have an issue trying to hit the little full screen icon in the bottom right.  It just paused the movie.  In fact, clicking on any of the icons down there did that, so I couldn't change to HD mode, change the sound volume, or watch it in full screen.

Tested on the Dark Souls video here: http://gamingtrend.com/2011/08/17/sadistic-gamers-and-their-dark-souls/  in Chrome.  The 007 video seemed to have full functionality. 

I was going to test more, but I kept getting ads so I gave up. Which leads me to: I can't say I'm a fan of ads, but I guess that's how things go.

I will check out the video and see if I can figure out why it's being so damned stubborn. 

As for the ads...I wish I could say there were other revenue streams, but there really just isn't.  frown
