Hey check out these two movies, they both have something in common:

NOTE: Starbarians is by HappyHarry, my name appearing is a bug that was triggered by me hitting PUBLISH on his project. 'doh!

They were both uploaded as MP4 files and are playing in our new video player! Starbarians originally consisted of three SWFs, too big to compile as one file. HappyHarry used Swivel, software developed by Mike to perform the best-ever SWF to video conversions. It's full framerate, 1080p (try fullscreen mode) and it even merged his individual SWF files on the fly. Swivel is still in the testing phase but we'll be releasing it to the public when it's all polished up!

The MP4 upload feature is invite-only at the moment to avoid an all-out video dumpfest. The focus is on animated content and the occasional film with cool post-production, like if MindChamber ever makes his MindChamber movie. If you have an animation that doesn't work well as a traditional SWF, PM me.

Everyone else, enjoy the show! If the video doesn't work for you, let us know. For some reason Adblocker in Firefox might block it from loading so try turning that off if you have problems. We're looking into what could be causing that.

The Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation (NATA) open round has begun! You have until May 10th to create something based on the theme "Discovering Time Travel" - read the thread for more info!

I'm 60 seconds of loading later and there is ~5 seconds buffered. Teething problems? completely unwatchable...

Same here, although I do have a lousy internet connection atm, I think it's because it's buffering at full 1080p, I think you need to implement an option to turn down the quality Tom :(

Damn this is great. I love new features for the website. We should see some more people attracted to NG because of this too.

How much will Swivel cost once it's released..? I imagine that's something we'd have to pay for if it's so good.

This is cool though.

Starbarians episode is a glitchy, pixely mess with lots of green everywhere. May be the video player itself.

Also, how about a way to change quality down in case someone has a slow Internet connection?

Awesome, that also sorts out that feature some guy was asking for a couple of days ago.

He wanted a timebar like the one on youtube.

First, it was talk of the VC.

Then, it was talk about traditional video player videos coming to NG.

This is most likely a Flash bug - it can happen on YouTube videos too. Are you watching in fullscreen mode? If so it might fix itself if you exit out and go back into fullscreen.

I tested it on fullscreen - great quality ;D

Best idea could be wait a couple of minutes then watch it. Watched Starbarians, took about 7 minutes to load all of it for me.

Only took Starbarians about half and hour to get past judgment. That was really fast!!

Definitely need a quality change button, I can play large files like this because my PC is pretty bad ass... but because of my internet connection Its taking forever to buffer, it still hasn't loaded 100% as I type this.

Some people may have a pretty sweet internet connection but a rather slow pc, so it makes sense to have a button for quality. Please put it there soon.

Its a pretty sweet video player none the less though, NG will really be able to rival youtube now.

Yeah the player definitely needs this. Valentine's day loaded very slowly when I tried loading it a couple days ago. Oddly enough Starbarians loaded just fine but I don't imagine all movies will load as quickly as it did in the future.

I'm just getting audio with pure black. I'm using AdBlockPlus and tried disabling it on Newgrounds but still no result. Do you have to turn it off altogether?

It's cool and all, but I prefer having a preloader so I don't have to wait every time the animation gets stuck on loading.

video is a -no- go for me. I've tried 3 browsers and the videos will not work.

I hear audio only, I've tried chrome, opera, and explorer. I have all the latest versions.

On chrome its completely black.
On explorer, and opera I see it flashing green and random frames from the videos.

But one thing was consistent, that was the audio. It was fine, the video was working at all.

I'm also using windows 7 OS

anyone know why this is happening?

...Theres a pause button, and the timeline itself is a preloader.

... seriously?
