TA Plays video player?

Is it just me or is the video player that's currently used for "TA plays" videos just not good enough?

It seems clunky and buggy and doesn't allow me to change to a HD resolution. Latest example here:


Is there any chance you can continue to use Youtube for TAP videos? Thanks!

Yep. On an iPad here and half the time the videos don't load (just get a black box with no play symbol), and when they do load the fullscreen button is non-responsive. Really poor experience.

Yeah, the Game Trailers video player is really janky.
You can't even airplay the videos. I thought this was a site about iOS :'(

Please go back to YouTube!
