Hi. I noticed that if I visit my byte page on Google Chrome (https://byte.co/hothashbrown), I can view my videos but here are some problems:
- Each video takes a rather long time to load.
- The video has no playback controls (Pause, Play, etc).
- The video starts on mute
- The “Likes” are not displayed.
The reason why 2 and 3 is a problem is because, when the video starts playing, it plays on “mute”. By the time the user click the video to “unmute” it, a portion of the video would have passed and this spoils any build up to jokes and stuff.
Due to the absence of the playback controls, there is no way to pause and restart the video either.
I know the Desktop version is not a priority since the app is designed for the mobile but it would be nice to see some of these features for those who don’t have their phones with them.
Suggestion: I think if a commenting feature was enabled, this would allow more comments to be made by users as it is much easier typing on a keyboard rather than on a screen.
Oh, and did I mention that I love byte?
