If I switch my user agent to "iPad", the videos play just fine in Safari 7 too.

YouTube Ditches Flash For HTML5 Video By Default

ArcadeMan Re:Come again? (161 comments)

YouTube = youtube.com
"Player on the Web" = embedded YouTube videos on non-youtube.com web pages.

Lizard Squad Hits Malaysia Airlines Website

ArcadeMan Re:Hacking "Collaborative"? (33 comments)

Now they have replaced an image on a website, big fucking whoop.

That's still better than most business clients using a CMS.

Opera Founder Is Back, WIth a Feature-Heavy, Chromium-Based Browser

ArcadeMan Only those features? (138 comments)

Firefox users who likewise prefer a browser with more rather than fewer features (but otherwise want to stick with Firefox) might also consider SeaMonkey, which bundles not just a browser but email, newsgroup client and feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat and web development tools.

Either that's feature bloat for a Web browser or it's also missing an image editor. I'm not sure which.

Modular Smartphones Could Be Reused As Computer Clusters

ArcadeMan Re:Oh Boy! (81 comments)

Those USB/HDMI converters are almost as expensive as a Raspberry Pi.

So, if we forget the dual monitor output, what's out there with SD card access and an HDMI port? Anything with a lower price tag than a Raspberry Pi that's still worth buying?

Modular Smartphones Could Be Reused As Computer Clusters

ArcadeMan Re:Oh Boy! (81 comments)

A bit overkill for what I need (driving two LCDs as poster displays).

NVIDIA GTX 970 Specifications Corrected, Memory Pools Explained

ArcadeMan Option? (112 comments)

The smaller, 500MB pool operates at 1/7th the speed of the 3.5GB pool and thus will lower total graphics system performance by 4-6% when added into the memory system. That occurs when games request MORE than 3.5GB of memory allocation though, which happens only in extreme cases and combinations of resolution and anti-aliasing.

How about giving us the option to either always be able to run at maximum speed (disable that last 0.5GiB) or always let the software use the full 4GiB (at the cost of speed if more than 3.5GiB is required).

ArcadeMan Re:Terrible names (364 comments)

I much rather have most of the stuff shoved away from my site, until I need them

Like a spellchecker, perhaps?

DirectX 12 Lies Dormant Within Microsoft's Recent Windows 10 Update

ArcadeMan Re:Windows 10 (133 comments)

Show me where I can get Windows 7 for 60$CAD on NewEgg.ca

And I play Blizzard and Steam games. Not everyone needs to play games on a 4K monitor at 200FPS with the maximum settings.

DirectX 12 Lies Dormant Within Microsoft's Recent Windows 10 Update

ArcadeMan Re:Windows 10 (133 comments)

I wrote in my previous message that I build it myself and that's it's a new computer. It's parts I bought from NewEgg, which are not used.

Verizon, Cable Lobby Oppose Spec-Bump For Broadband Definition

ArcadeMan Re: life in the U.S. (253 comments)

Sometimes, yes. Nothing is 100% reliable. But ask the same question to someone who lives in Canada, Europe or Asia. Nobody "expects" to lose his connection. On the rare occasions that it happens, it's surprising and shocking, but not expected.

ArcadeMan Re: life in the U.S. (253 comments)

Ideally you want to grab as much of the stream all at once as you can, incase you loose connectivity during the next 2 hours.

That's the problem. USA-Americans are so used to crappy communication services that they expect to lose connections. There shouldn't be any lost connectivity.

They won't ban drones but they'll make a law making it illegal to fly drones higher than the height of a standard backyard fence.
