    Videos at the bottom of threads

    What's up with these? How long have they been there and why are they there?

    We just put them up this afternoon. They are pretty cool. They are highlights from every Iowa State/Big 12 basketball/football game. We also just got a video player install on the front page. Check it out!

    Are these the reason I keep getting the "Add Adobe Flash Player" box every time I open a page?

    On the front page of CF is one thing. In threads is just something else to slow down the site.

    It shouldn't slow down the site at all. This is additional content and also another way for us to produce revenue for a free site.

    Chris,

    Can it be limited to Iowa State videos? Or do you have to use everything from the Big 12?

    Also, is there a way to know what a video is without having to watch a 30 second ad? I don't mind watching the ad, but it seems that I have to do so before I can even find out what the video is.

    Finally found the ISU highlights. They are great. Very fun to watch.

    Yes sir. I am working on having the forums player be Iowa State only (like the one on the front page) ASAP.

    Cool ISU video highlights and revenue for CF is a Win/Win. Keep 'em coming.

    That makes a lot more sense than random Big 12 videos. Still seems like there should be the option to remove it (other than AdBlock).
