Join the Floatplane Club

(47 reviews)
From $2.99
 
The "Floatplane Pilot" forum membership is $2.99/month or $29.99/year and the plan is as follows:
- DRM-Free downloads for members at up to 1080p
- High quality streaming video at up to 1080p
- Ad free service - No pre-roll and post-roll ads to suck up your bandwidth
- Exclusive member-only comments section through the LinusTechTips.com forum
- Early access - For now it'll be similar to the Vessel experience (1 week), but the window COULD change, and I can almost guarantee there will be more simultaneous releases for time-sensitive projects than before.
Beyond the initial offering, though we can't promise ALL of these will be available at the same membership level (High bitrate 4K video downloads that would CRUSH our current hosting setup come to mind), here are some things we are considering implementing LOVE to implement in the future:

- A dedicated website (this is being actively developed) with upgraded watch page and comments
- A sexier watch page & comments section
- Realtime chat to make it fun to grab a bag of popcorn and chat with other floatplane club members while viewing the latest releases
- 4k videos

This is a review of the video playback pointed to developers, and it's feedback about the forum and such.

For the people who want to buy it: For the price I paid for it (3/month) and the road it's going I would recommend it. but remember on this point is still something that's under construction.

 

 

I use an Android tablet (Pixel C) to watch the video's, all suggestions are coming from that perspective


although my connection was good enough and my screen was big, the default resolution of video's was set to 360.
- Would like to see an auto option that is set as default that scales to as high as possible

- an app to see the video's instead of the forum

- Video skipping, either something like youtube (click left to reverse 10s, right to skip 10s) or VLC (hold and scroll)

the video sometimes stutters and it looks like there isn't a prerender.
When I pause and then come back a few minutes later the video can't start right away
- Would love to see a prerender (rendering the video a few seconds in front of where you are watching) or make it visible

it doesn't seem to remember the time stamp when I mid video change the resolution

- A way to show which video's you've already seen (like the red completed bar on youtube)

The resolution button stays there
- I would like to see it disappear after 15 seconds without interaction.

I love that the player is imbeded in a forum rather than the other way around, that to me makes the whole experience feel unique. Even though I have to cancel my annual membership until finances get figured out, the service is 100% worth the money and I applaud the entire team who worked very hard to bring the experience from where it was at the beginning to where it is now.

Tbh vessel sucks and I am glad to see LMG making something (not only for themselves) to better the community of content creators. This further proves the point that Linus understands the value of spending good money on his people and the equipment that they use to make the content that much better.

 

Nothing but respect for that man.

I got it so there would be blue words under my name instead of white text saying member. Oh and the videos are not hosted on Youtube so your ISP can't throttle them so you can enjoy higher resolution videos. And other stuff I have no idea if it will actually become a thing or not.

Awesome
though vessel was 20$ a year ;)
If you guys would manage to bring Hardware Canucks on board as well this would be totally worth it. But I signed up to see how this will turn out :)

Amazing how quick this was put together, and I look forward to seeing how this can further improve :D - Hopefully one day when it isn't just a sub-forum we can actually get other content creators into this and create an alternative platform for watching.

Payed for a whole year of this within 24 hours of it being released. LTT releases such great content, and it's nice to support the work they do.

Not only that, but it's amazing to see how the LTT team and forum moderators have put so much time into making Floatplane great, and I can't wait to see where this goes!

 

10/10
