TED.com has a new video player!

This has been a long time in the works, and I'm really excited to see it live. Our new player allows much higher-definition video.  It also auto-adjusts for people's bandwidth to minimize any buffering issues.

Here's a screenshot from the old player at full-screen. (From Reggie Watts' hilarious "talk".)

And here's the same scene in the new player. (Click to full-screen to really see the difference.)

I'm currently at a hotel in Edinburgh on limited bandwidth. Last week, I would probably have had the dreaded buffering wheel. Today, not seeing it.  Just Reggie in HD. 

There's a lot more innovation coming on TED.com.  Exciting days...
