Friends, 

Please test the new video format and provide some feedback. I'm interested to find out how it's working in various browsers, etc. and learn how it's working for folks "other than me" before I go too much further. 

Like it, don't like it, experiencing any issues, suggestions, etc.? 

Thanks for your help!

Thanks, man. I need to start paying closer attention. Nerd  It's fixed now. Thumbsup
The one second load delay Sleep is completely unacceptable.   Wavehello

Glad your getting your collection back up to share with us.  Thumbsup

I'm watching the '92 Steelers vs Jets right now. Smash Mouth run offense and swarming defense first thing in the morning is better than any cup of coffee.  Rockon

Thank you brother Tim!
Hey Tim,

Looks good to me, appreciate all the hard work!

On a side note I was surfing some Steeler sights over the long week-end and found a site I had never seen before. Called "Steelers Universe". Anyway on their main page they have a Forum page they have a lobby called: "The Video Cabinet". In this area some of their members are linking to your videos. Not sure if this is causing you a concern or not. Just wanted to let you know.

Howdy, Chuck. Glad they're linking. The game videos are for all to enjoy! I'd perhaps have a bone to pick with them if they were embedding the videos, because that would use up our host bandwidth. But links? All good.

STFU!  Censored Pi_bigsmile

Gonna do a few games from the '90's and early '00's next. I plan to focus mostly on the early stuff complete ('70's era) right now, but it's fun to mix it up just a little. 

I just posted the '94 home game vs. Cleveland. I can't wrap my brain around the fact that that game was 25 flippin' years ago!!!  Pi_shocked Pi_shocked Pi_shocked
Just spent about 20 mins going through the 1995 Steelers 37 at Bears 34 OT video. At full screen it is pretty blotchy but when not, really quite clear. Audio is excellent throughout. The bigeest negative came when I threw up a little in my mouth when I realized I was watching Kneel O'Dummel at QB! THANKS FOR DOING THIS TIM!!
Tim, thanks a million for your efforts on our behalf. Unfortunately I can’t seem to download and of the games. I am using Chrome browser on my IPad Pro. Should I switch to Safari? please advise. Thanks, Dave.

Dave, I'm using Chrome and the games work fine for me.

It finally loaded, but it took a while, almost 5 minutes, but well worth the wait! Thanks again.

Yeah, sometimes that happens. Not 100% sure why, but other times, games load quickly.

The good thing is, once the game is loaded, you generally won't have any buffering issues if you RW/FF/skip around in the game. It streams smoothly. It's because you're getting the full "raw file" of the game without viewing it through a proprietary host-driven viewer (like YouTube or Vimeo). There are pros & cons, but in general, I prefer it this way. It allows me to do nerdy design stuff like round the corners of the video to match the TV screen, add the 10-second RW/FF buttons, etc. 

Ah, tradeoffs.
You have the Oilers game from Three Rivers in '78 labeled as Steelers-49ers from the same year.

Also, the Raiders game from '76 has a "This type of video is not supported" message.

Thanks, man. The '76 Raiders game is fixed. I'm in Philly and won't be able to fix the Niners game until I get home.
Check the Raiders '76 game again when you get a chance, Tim. I'm still getting the same error message.

It's good now, works perfectly. You're probably getting a cached version in your browser. 

If you use Chrome, go to incognito mode and you should be able to see it. Or, clear your cache/history.
Everything's working fine now, Tim.
