They have a lovely video uploading service along with that cool GTD thing to get free shizzle. I'd really love it if there wasn't one minor niggle........... i said niggle not, never mind.
My issue with Gametrailers.
VIDEO UPLOADING NEVER BLOODY WORKS!!
Here's a list of issues I have had with videos I have uploaded.
1. Failure to even start uploading
2. Upon finishing uploading instead of going to the next screen where it should tll you you've been sucessful it goes to a white screen with the word "error" in the corner. Video has failed on the user movies tab.
3. Upon uploading I go to the user movies tab and where it should say "video compressing" it instead says "a non-fatal error has occoured, the video may compress though". which leads me to number four...
4. above message did appear and video spent 24 hours compressing before it gave up, or...
5. video compressed in record time but when viewed it freezes a few seconds in.
6. video sucessfully uploads but freezes half way through
7. video freezes up but clicking after the progress marker will make it play without sound.
8. Upon completion of upload my browser (firefox) quits rather than moving to the next page.
Now with that potential minefield of errors it's a wonder I've gotten any videos up. i think only 2 videos of mine have uploaded without an issue. I'm currently on attempt number 4 for a video I'm uploading now. I have experimented with all sorts of file types from wmv and .mov to MP4 and DivX but nothing seems to change. I've never had a single issue with youtube but that place is a cesspool of racism and homophobia so I try to avoid it. Thing is I'm begining to wish Youtube would just buy up gametrailers so the video uploading would bloody work.
Until then, fingers crossed eh?
Well the video uploaded but I got fault number 6. It froze up at 5:52. Time to try again.
added fault number 8 which I just got.
Actually managed to get it uploaded and you can see it here
