I don't know how many people here watch the videos at Lakers.com, but I like to watch them everyday, postgame interviews, one-on-one's with Mike Trudell, after practice interviews, etc. Last year after the Lakers redesigned the website it was great, I loved checking out all the new content. Now suddenly in the last few days instead of the videos showing up and playing at Lakers.com they just forward to NBA.com and use there terrible setup. I have issues with the videos taking a lot longer to buffer and play. They aren't in true chronological order like they used to be on Lakers.com, and overall it's just a worse experience IMHO.

Maybe I'm the only one that finds this annoying, but I do.

Please send your disapproval to feedback@la-lakers.com and maybe they'll actually do something about it if the NBA lets them, let's keep our Lakers videos on Lakers.com!

Old video player: http://www.nba.com/l.../0708video.html

New video player: http://www.nba.com/v...8...=team&q=LAL

I don't know about anyone else, maybe I'm the only one that finds this annoying, but I would rather stay on Lakers.com and get all of my content from there rather than from NBA.com.

I support you. I can't really play it on Firefox. I have to switch to IE to be able to play them. Buffering is out of the question if I can't even get the player to play. And I've checked my plugin, it's perfectly fine. Beats me on why that is happening.

Yes.
I hate the new NBa page in general, they should go back to the old one. And I liked the Lakers video page before.

Actually I support their decision in this new player, hey, 16:9, not 4:3 :lol: But...for some weird reason, some of us can't get it to play...really no idea why.

P.S. Earlier I tried the new player link above, it played, but takes longer to load...bummer with randoms...arghz.

Actually, they're both in widescreen, so I don't think you have an argument there.

Glad to see some support. Remember to e-mail the Lakers about feedback at feedback@la-lakers.com and let them know what you think.
