I know this has been brought up in the past, but we really need a better video player for the previews. The current one is incredibly buggy and slow…or maybe the slowness is a server related issue? Either way, I tried watching 7 different previews yesterday and after 3-4 minutes waiting on each one I gave up. I’ve got incredibly fast internet so I know that’s not the case, can anyone from the Envato staff shed some light on this?

Are you sure the problem is on the Envato side? This is how previews work for me, recorded with my camcorder:

Some days it works pretty well for a short time, most days nothing will load after a few minutes of waiting. Maybe there is an issue with people on Macs? I’ve tried it on a macbook pro, imac and mac pro (Safari, Firefox, Chrome) and all have the same issue.

Whenever I try this site I also check to make sure all other sites work fine (youtube, vimeo, etc). My speedtest shows 36Mbps Down and 6.5 Mbps up.

The previews seem to be loading normal again, but this morning and last night they were struggling to load at all (which happens far too often for me).

This never happened to me. And I check every new project on VH since I’m here. Once or twice I remember slow loading – but it was like waiting 10 seconds to load the preview, not more.

That’s great, but I also check the site daily and buy a few projects a week and I run into this problem a lot. Just because you aren’t experiencing issues doesn’t mean other people aren’t.
