    Their video player's still in beta, and it's not very good to begin with. Combined with all the commercials, that's why I normally ignore those things.

    Not surprising. I just watched the stupid gnome commercial and pringles commercial about 50 times. I hate that gnome now. But I love Team Jeric, so I'm all for watching their videos and trying to be patient..

    If you use the direct links, sometimes there are no commercials.

    When there is one, use your mouse to drag the slider in the middle from left to right as soon as the commercial starts. I've always skipped them.

    Yes! Eric & Jeremy love! I think they are great. But, yes, these commercials ARE damn annoying. Their videos ARE hilarious though.. and if you watch them, they genuinely are really nice, friendly guys. It makes me enjoy them all the more. I hope they win Wednesday.



    I've tried moving the slider button to skip through the commercials, it never lets me. It won't allow me to skip them. But it'll let you skip through the actual video. So they force us to watch the damn commercials.

    I wasn't clear...moving the slider to skip the commercial only works when I use Real Player. It doesn't work when I view on CBS.

    The id is pretty much in numerical order. To bypass CBS website, just change the last digit. As an example:

    http://video.cgi.cbs.com/vplayer2/pl...e=pre&id=22240

    To view the next clip, change 0 to 1:

    http://video.cgi.cbs.com/vplayer2/pl...e=pre&id=22241

    The best way to watch any of the CBS online clips is to open them IN realplayer - don't watch them on the screen they've provided. Right click on the screen while it's starting to play & select "Play in Realplayer". There's no pixelation problems, you can skip the commercials, it's great.
