IGN’s New Video Player Is Horrible (So Far)

IGN has changed their video player again and it is full of bugs. It looks like they are using a custom video player to view videos they upload to YouTube, which is a very good idea because it removes stress from their servers. For whatever reason though, it freezes the browser. I’m not sure if anyone else has been going through that, but it doesn’t matter what browser I try it with, it freezes. I tried it in Chromium, Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Opera. The issue seems to happen when going out of fullscreen. I’m not sure if the browser still freezes when when not in fullscreen because I’ve only tested it in that mode. I hope it gets fixed soon because it is very annoying. Until then, I’ll watch any videos I really need to watch directly from their YouTube account.
