PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING A COMMENT!!!

Though H.264 streaming capability comes with being a CR supporter, NOT ALL VIDEOS ARE AVAILABLE FOR STREAMING IN THE H.264 FORMAT. This can be due to the following reasons:

1. The original source video is not compatible
2. The video has yet to be converted to support H.264
3. The video was uploaded when the encoder suddenly went down

As a rule of thumb, all new uploads should be available in the H.264 format. If not, assume reason 3 to be behind it. In addition, all older uploads that were uploaded before the implementation of H.264 are still in the process of H.264 conversion, which explains why not all the videos in CR have H.264 streaming options.

Adobe released their latest version of Flash player 9 (update 3) with h.264 support, meaning star supporters will now have access to even higher quality videos!

What's h.264? see wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264 basically its a better way to compress videos, and its what apple Quicktime uses.

to start watching stuff:
1. You must be a star donor
2. Download and install the latest flash player here:
http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/
3. Go to any video page, click on the "h264" link below the video. it should play!
4. If theres no h264 link, it means that its either an older video that's still being h264-encoded, or you aren't a star supporter.

Post comments, bugs, etc below. thanks!

Edit:
to all the people who cant see the video but can hear sound, can you guys post screenshots? also try hitting the Larger link, and lemme know if it works!

i really really like it ^^

videos are really really good quality now ^^

The quality is better then before, the sound quality is also awesome. I 'm not too sure but it takes a shorter time to buffer the videos now.

Some videos improved, others I did not see much change, and in others the sound quality dropped to the LQ level.

They seem SOOO much faster, and there's like zero pixels. It's all good, except..I think it lost a very little bit of sound quality. I think <---

humn.... i just checked it out with Bamboo blade 7, and the high-def version in full screen looks better then the h.264 version.... the expansion into fullscreen seems to pixelate it for some reason...
