MSN Offers New Long Form Video Player


With the introduction on MSN of streams of all episodes of Arrested Development , MSN is using a new video player enhanced for longer form viewing. The player will allow 15 second jump back, remember the location of an interrupted episode, and offer an “enlarged” view.  

My test of the player and content showed the video to be clear, but low resolution. The enlarged view is scaled up and pixelated. Changing chapters always involves a forced 30 second commercial. Some pluses and minuses, but overall progress.

The first five episodes are available now, and the rest will be added 3 at a time  tri-weekly starting December 15th. No idea what the magic of 3 episodes every three weeks is about though?
