Boost for reddit 1.2.2 – New video/gif player for faster loading!

Hi,

There is a new beta version with something I’ve wanted to do for a long time:

I’ve included a new video player implementation that allows to start playing files before they are completely downloaded. Seeking is more accurate also.

I’ve included a new cache system that is shared by all media, including thumbnails and previews, to save bandwidth and speed things up.

1.2.2

  • New video player implementation: Gifs/videos will load faster!
  • Media cache improvements to speed things up and save bandwidth
  • Use mp4 version for i.redd.it gifs
  • The old video player is available under Settings-Media-Video player

To join the beta, follow this link

Feel free to leave feedback if you find any issue with the new features.

Cheers!
