With this new video feature, i hope newgrounds will become the new vimeo...Of animation.
This stuff is all awesome. Shorts like these really help to improve the legitimacy of Flash and Web animation in general (which has been a long time coming) and this trend needs to continue.
While I'm also glad for the possibilities presented by the fact that the video player has been mostly successful so far, I've noticed that many of the videos (Starbarians and a few others, now Lucky Day Forever) won't play properly on some of my machines. Very likely NOT a co-incidence, my Win7 and Mac play them fine while my two WinXP (shut up) machines choke hard. Is that something that you guys are considering an issue or is it reasonable to just wait out anyone still using pre-vista OS'?
Anyways I'm glad to see that NG remains a great forum for this kind of content, it makes me feel a lot less iffy about posting more serious stuff down the line.
Well, it's nice that you have put thought into making video files backwards compatable. However, I didn't find "The Worst" to be that good.

these movies DO rock, however.
I have been a long time fan of Sarkzam's work since Hanged Man's Elegy. That animation was fantastic and told a compelling story. I'm excited to go and check out Lucky Day Forever, even just the trailer for it was moving. Horrah for it's release!
Aw, these videos are ruinning my hopes of ever winning movie of the year.

Internet standard? What do you mean?

A lucky year would mean that like 3/4 of the people on this site leave. (joking! more like 4/5ths)

This movie is just amazing. Thought provoking to say the least. A touch of a 'Matrix' feel about it. So similar, yet so different. But so beautiful.
On Thursday we had the first submission from NG newcomer and Calarts student Jacob Streilein.
I actually hunted Jacob down after seeing his stuff; I don't solicit people often but now that we have video support I want to be sure artists know about it.
And this one is also phenomenal. One of my favourite Newgrounds submissions ever. Mind-blowingly good doesn't even start to describe this. Two of NGs best submissions ever and both posted in the same week. Weekly 1st is going to go down to the wire and Best of the Month is going to cause a similar dilemma. But I would assume they will end up with 1st and 2nd, either way both authors should be seriously proud of their finished products and not be disappointed whatever the results may be. My Monthly Vote will go to Swelter though.

Like the quality of what people expect in web animation compared to the past.
I like what video's done for NG, there's alot of fantastic shit coming in lately because of it. I wanna join this party...
Someone should keep a list of all of these video player submissions, all of them so far are very good.
your always so very nice about the artist. Watching a artist grow like edd did(god rest his soul in a bath of coke) or egoraptor over the years is very fun, the script mostly stays the same but the quality gets better as technology does.
I hope to see more budding artist come out.
Tapping the fingers for art and laughs.
Now is a good time to be an artist... I'm excited for the updates. It makes me wonder how many artists have been excluded from submitting to Newgrounds before now.
And we're not even done yet.
