Rai will post more later, but for now I’ll hit the highlights. We’ve upgraded our player to the latest jwplayer and added a new skin. We’ve also updated the page scripts. You should see performance improvements when clicking buttons and switching between sub and dub version. Speaking of buttons, you’ll notice the side buttons have been simplified. The sd/hd button is now in the player only.*
For our guest and registered users we’ve switched to an ad-supported model using the Hulu player. Guest and registered users will see hulu ads. Premium subscribers will still be ad free.
Lastly, we’ve temporarily disabled the popout player. We need to do a bit more work to integrate the changes and the hulu player. It’ll be back very soon.
Watch for Rai’s blog post and Spazzysam is going to post some instructions with screenshots.
As always, give us your comments and thoughts on the changes. Post problem reports here.
