Mike has made some fixes to the video player this week so as of today, let me know if you experience any problems with it. Examples include a video not starting or seeing a black screen while only hearing audio.

Here are some videos you can test out, especially if you've had problems in the past:

It has always been working perfectly for me!

Also, any news on when the delete/rename buttons will be added to the project system?

Hey Tom, whenever I download a song, the title and stuff is all muffed up. It makes it look sloppy when I put it on my mp3 player. Idk why it does this. A is the when I download a song now, B is back in tha day.

Firefox; Windows 7.

i probably should've posted this somewhere else.

Unfortunately not, but I'm glad to see I'm not the only one having that problem. By the way, it caused my video driver to crash. Luckily Windows could restore it and continue without having to restart the whole system.

Using Safari on a new iPad, all those videos work fine except the Starbarians one. The audio works, but the video is all green scramblydoo like in that other guy's screenshot.

I'm still not getting any problems. I just saw Starbarians without a problem. I'm on Chrome 18 with Windows 7 x64.

Still not working for me. I can get Starbarians, Valentines Day, APPLE.MOV and a few others to play, but the majority of them just sit on the loading screen forever, with the loading bar full right from the word go. It's like any videos that were uploaded after a certain point won't work for me. It's possible I did something to my computer which stopped the videos from working, but I've cleared my cache and it can still watch Starbarians and any of the earlier video uploads. If there was a way I could see a list of all the MP4 uploads in chronological order I could find exactly what day the uploads stopped working for me.

I've just watched Bounty + Hunter and found that I still have to refresh the page to get the player to launch. Firefox 12 is what I'm running here in the office.

I never had much problems using Chrome but whenever I used Mozilla Firefox it would always show a pure dark screen and never end up playing. Works great now, thanks Tom!

Newgrounds has been changing so much these past few years....
