... This is the CCP I remember. Keep it up guys!

EDIT: The videos didn't have sound for me. < insert "Eve has sound?" meme >

Seriously, little hacks like this opened to the community is a great thing. I might even convert a few to personalize the long hours I sit in the CQ. Now, if you can just let me open a SSH terminal session on the CQ:TV to my work server I can start doing some of my real work while sitting on my virtual couch in addition to sitting on my real office chair.

Thanks, CCP Optimal.

Now, most companies would have branded this as a defect and “fixed it” by doing checksum validations on the files or something equally boring. But not us.


We will present something players figured out as our own accomplishment.

Nice. A small step, but in the right direction.
Glad we have sound too.
If you give us some sort of (simplistic) play controls, that would be cool :)

Keep up the good work.

Next thing ya know, we'll be getting modifiable XML UI interfaces like the rest of the world.

(I'll hold my breath)

However, good spin on turning a client hack into a feature instead of wielding the ban-hammer :)

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

Wonders if they're going to allow 'channel' support. Maybe something for the use in the future for the devs own stuff in customizing the CQ a bit more
Channel 1 Would be the normal feed.
Channel 2 All the fan videos.
Channel 3 Lolcats.
Channel 4 Clear Skies and Red vs Blue.
Channel 5 News
Channel 6 Sov Ticker

and in our folders it would just be labed as such.

Dust 514's CPM 1 Iron Wolf Saber Eve mail me about Dust 514 issues.

Where is the Anti Aliasing on the screenshot? :)

And please... don`t do ARGs. I went nuts when Valve launched the Portal ARG. That thing drives you insane.

I was wondering what to convert. MLP:FiM is so obvious! And maybe some Invader Zim.

It. Is. Awesome.

Was aware that it could be done but had no desire to do something that might have been bad for the client.

Can we get some play/pause/next controls? We will be able to open a more standard format so that we can browse our own video library without having to pre-convert everything? It takes a shitload of time to convert 1 video i'll only watch once...

Just don't let this take resources away from FiS. I could really do with some comedy japanese-movie rapper dubbing while i'm cooling off.

The world is a community of idiots doing a series of things until it explodes and we all die.

Keep doing stuff like this and I might actually remember why I liked CCP.

Thanks and keep up the good works.

Big video screen is cool in concept, but only if we can change channels (eve business channel, war channel, entertainment channel, etc) then it really is no more than an interesting novelty. Give us volume & play controls.

At least my loft in Grand Theft Auto IV had music with more than one station to listen to.
