Funnily enough the busiest website in the world also uses PHP. How weird

Thanks. I'll tweak that, it shouldn't be overlapping the controls.


Do you mean having a "tuner" so they can choose to have just
youtube/vimeo/flash/non-affiliated, etc...?

I'll think about that. It's not a bad idea for adding more interactivity.


I think we could do better than excluding media simply because some people
might not be able to view it. We definitely have the hardware and skillz
to do the transcoding that would be necessary to make the content
available to anyone in any format. I'm just not sure it is the best way to
handle the problem. Perhaps it should be made clearer to producers that if
they want their content distributed there are a few formats that are more
widely acceptable. For example ogv will definitely work on a "Linux"
community channel. Anyone who doesn't have that will need to sort their
end out.

Another thing I could do is add an icon to let the viewer know what format
the media associated with the button is so they don't waste their time
clicking only to be told they don't have all the codecs/plugins that they
needs to view it. It keeps a certain element of surprise without
sacrificing it completely.
