I'm not experiencing any problems with Videobam playback myself, but I linked to one of the videos on here hosted on Videobam on my Facebook page, and one or two of my friends have commented on being unable to play the link, which is a real shame.
The worrying thing about Videobam vids not working is when new visitors come to the blog and just get error messages when they click on them. Its a bit, dare i use the word `embarrassing`, all i can say is be patient as it took 6 days to fix last time.
Videobam clips are back to normal now. It's very frustrating when faults like this occur, but since it's a free service, I don't really have any redress. I've tried other video hosts, but they all have their drawbacks. Youtube has to delete audio when the Copyright Vampires tell them to: Vimeo deletes posts completely: photobucket and divshare have quality problems: yfrog was great until they "improved" their service and broke their embedded code.
Videobam playback quality is pretty good, and they havea download facility (when it works). They do seem to be making an effort to improve their service, and respond well to users feedback. I'm sticking with them for now.
If anyone can recommend an alternative, please let me know.
Hi YMG, i know you cant do anything about this problem, but Videobam is still not letting me play any vids on the blog. It obviously only effects a certain few people. The phrase `A pile of cack` springs to mind. I do agree with you its very good when it works. I cannot explain why people like myself and Suefan are cursed with this affliction and others seem to not be affected. It would be a shame if our newbies also cant play these vids, can i just assure them this last time there was a problem like this, it took about a week to sort it self out. No i cant offer an alternative.
Bye for now a rather grumpy RYAN.
Hi Folks: sorry to hear about your continuing troubles. Can you all reply and tell me which browser and operating system you're using? I'll bring the problems up on their support forums, and I'm sure they'll want to know such details.
My apologies YMG but being on my travels I managed to miss your request for info on op systems etc. I've had problems with VB, although they are working fine for me at the moment, and at home we use Safari and OS10 something.
