    not gonna lie, right before the old man said "almost there"  there was a 5 second buffer and i totally thought they put a pause in the video for maximum cringe

    It would be nice if sponsors had priority streaming so I could watch the video in 240p within 2 minutes instead of 10.

    Or just ditch the YT style must be playing to buffer. I fucking hate hitting play for 2 seconds, freeze, buffer, freeze buffer, freeze buffer. Cancel sponsorship, buffer. I might as well cancel because I don't have this problem on YT and iTunes where I can either download or have faster streaming. Really pisses me off that as a paying customer my 'early access' is so much more infuriating than other viewers. Frequently even when RTX isn't on. Don't have this problem on YT. Could we cancel some of the dumb shit and just focus on better servers for current content? I haven't watched half the RT shorts because they lag.

    (Edit)

    For the pseudo intellectual fuckwits commenting. If it was my internet speed then YT would not stream either. I can't make their upload speed better. 


    It's either a shit server, shit video player or bad internet. Well I can play YT videos in HD so it can't be download speed (my end). Jesus Christ. For a freely educated population there's a lot of stupid motherfuckers here.


    I love how I get a console wars inspired response. JUST GET A PS4 NOOB.

      I agree. It is definitely their video service. It's better than most most, but not nearly as good as youtube's service. You can't exactly expect them to match youtube's player/server, but it would be nice if they gave a confirmation that they were working on it.

      Also check your browser, java updates, and so on. They (RT) went through changing video players every few months for a while before settling, and it's not a problem for all users; there's a disconnect, and there's speculation that it may have something to do with what browser is used. How that makes sense, I don't know, I'm not some coder that knows what they're talking about, but I have had issues with the buffering before, and problems have been tied to video player, browser used, ISP, sheer amount of tabs in one window, and, yes, turning it off and back on again.

      Try a different browser. Chrome seems to be the constant thread here in all the other posts. Firefox and Safari seems to be the ones that work well.

    I was thinking of a different old man in this scenario. The one in RWBY is never so chatty.

    This feels like only half of a story. Like there's no real punch line or anything.

      HemboHero on YouTube, when all the Animated adventures comes out to the public, Hero does the animation and the live action together and if the convo continues, he puts in the rest till the topic changes. Next Monday, when this comes out to the public, go to HemboHero's page and find out what the rest of this story is.

    My internet refuses to play the remainder of the video after Barb says, "Five seconds later he goes..."

    I'LL NEVER KNOW HOW IT ENDS.

      this ALWAYS happens with RTAA on the website for me.... idk why because its the only show that refuses to play after certain points.

      @bluesmurph
      Seriously - what is up with that??
      There are only 3 things tying these videos together as well.
      1. RTAA
      2. Relatively short
      3. Soon after they're released
      Something weird doing this shit....

      Shit, I thought it was just me. Like when a short video is 3/4 done, it just stops and refuses to load the rest

    • blah_blah91 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      The site does this to me, too. Rarely with rtaa's, but constantly with off topic and on the spot. Pretty common on the rt podcast, too.

      IF you're using Google Chrome, it happens all the time. Just open up another browser for RTAA's. I just pop the link into Safari and it works fine

    Oh man, I was really looking forward to this one, but the run time just didn't do it justice. The original version on the podcast is at least twice as hilarious, but I guess it would take them ages to animate the entire thing.

    Every single time one of these guys talks about another person, I always imagine that guy just watching it and thinking, "Oh shit. Are they talking about me?"

    Anyone have any idea why these aren't showing up on the Android app? It might be on iPhone, it seems like that's a more robust app for some reason, but it's not posted at all to my Android app.

      I've had that issue before. Eventually everything started showing up again. I also have problems in general with playback on the app. It will just pause randomly and buffer but won't start playing again no matter how long i let it sit and "bufer". The last iPhone update to the app was in November. =\

    Why is it that almost every single RTAA shits itself around 80-90% of the way through and refuses to finish for me?  Occasionally happens on other videos that are short on runtime too...

      Yeah same for me, I got to Barb saying ' About 5 seconds later, he goes ....'  No idea what he goes, but it sure did seem like it was probably the crux of this video!

      It does it all the time on Google Chrome. So if that's what you're using, try a different browser. I always just pop it into safari real quick
