You guys are just going crazy with the coding on these super-secret-embeddable-player-posts, aren't you? biggrin Video doesn't work for me, but I suspect that'll be fixed soon enough.

Also, cool stuff! Cool gifts! wink

I'd like to echo er-no's post. My plan of creating a christmas greeting was hampered by time and schedules, but I'll make sure next year will be different.

It's great to see eveyone come together. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I can't watch it either . Whether I try and play it from from the embed or go directly to YouTube it just won't load the video. Weird... confused Is is just not working for people in the States?

EDIT: It's working for me now! Very cool!! Really awesome to see so many people get in on this. smile

It looks like it's fine in Europe, or the UK at least, but isn't working for you guys in the States. I have no idea why that would be. crazy

Hopefully it's just a temporary glitch - if any of you manage to watch it let us know. Otherwise we might have to upload it again, or something...although that doesn't seem like it should be necessary, given that it plays flawlessly here in the UK...

In the meantime, maybe try changing video qualities to see if that helps?

If you have the bandwidth, try the 1080p quality mode. Axeman reports that he was able to watch it that way - you just might have to wait a little while for it to buffer!

We're also re-uploading it to YouTube in the hope that whatever glitch has befallen this version doesn't happen again. Will let you all know how it goes...

Doesn't work for me, either.

However, I played it on my iPhone perfectly fine, after some hefty loading wait-time.

Hahahaha, good ol Waser.

Apologies for not sending in my seasons greetings this year, I'm afraid it would have been the exact same sitting at a desk in the dark working too hard as last year.

Merry Christmas chaps!

Okay, was able to download the 1080 version using a Firefox script. Again, cool stuff! Nice to see everyone in the video, and some nice editing done to cram ours in there every now-and-then. biggrin

Thanks again to everybody that submitted a video. I think we managed to top last year's video!

Thanks also, of course, to everybody else: anybody that's posted on the forums this year, or bought one of our products, or told somebody else about what we do. No matter how hard we work here, it would be for nothing if it wasn't for you guys supporting us.

As Josh mentions in the video, next year is The Big One.

Very crafty. Yeah, we'll get to the bottom of the secret before too long. Our will is strong.



Really though, if I was guessing based on just that, maybe some kind of grading solution for stills and video?
