New LJWorld.com video player


We're pleased to announce a new video player you'll see throughout LJWorld.com. You might've already seen it as you browse around the site.If not, check out [this example][1].Our main [videos page][2] has had an up-do as well. You can browse the universe of videos we've posted, or focus on KU sports, high school sports, or KidCast weather videos. We'll be bringing more of our video content into that page, so keep an eye out for that.You can also now find all [6News Lawrence][3] stories at their new home.On the technical front, make sure you've got the latest Flash player (9) for your browser. (There's a beta version 10, but that's more bleeding-edge than our video player is.)Enjoy! [1]: http://www2.ljworld.com/videos/2008/m...

I should add it even runs better then the CNN player which barks at me every time I try and use it that I'm not using a supported browser, even though changing my user agent allows the video to run fine.Nice addition LJWorld, now I have one less reason to install QuickTime on my systems!

Marion - I'm on WinXPPro w/FireFox. It works but..........Too high a data rate for Umbrella users! Reducing quality didn't help either. Com'on folks - think about it not everybody that uses the LJ-W is on Sunflower's City system. You might be surprised to learn some aren't even in Kansas.Nope, nothing helps

Howdy -- Thanks greatly for the feedback. We're hearing of oddities with a few plugin versions; so if you'd like to detail which version of the Flash plugin you're running; which browser (IE 7.whatever, 6.whatever, Firefox), and which OS - WinXP service pack 2, etc., Mac OS 10.5.2 - it'll help us to debug the particular experiences some folks are having.

Must be a machine setting Marion because I've got a WinXP box right here, latest player, active firewall and even using the latest version of Firefox (nightly build) it loads fine. I'm not running through a proxy though. What are you trying to hide? ;)

David Ryan? The same David Ryan who allows his people to ban conservatives at will, and allow any and all level of to foulness remain with liberals and especially the far-left nuts that run rampant on LJW? That David Ryan? How DO you find the time?
