    Thanks for the share but as a person that has worked in broadcast film, web video, and the like you guys or whoever chose your player should really look into something else. It doesn’t buffer well and it keeps changing resolution. There are a lot of options out there. Again…not wanting to complain for what is free but this is certainly not my computer as I don’t have this issue with several other players available on the web. BTW…this is what I wanted Hemlock Grove to be. Grove was disappointing. This looks promising. Not campy soap opera atmosphere but a solid piece of adult drama as much as this type of genre piece can be. And definitely not the confusing soft-core porn of True Blood or rudderless American Horror Story. Here’s to hoping it continues on this path. Great cast.
