The video was unwatchable due to constant skipping and stopping.
Were you having issues loading the complete video before it would start? Or other technical issues?
Luckily this is one of the smart video players that continues to load in content when the video is paused, so if you’re having trouble just pause and wait for the entire thing to load.
And curse sites that still use players that only buffer/stream when the video is playing.
Eric, Thanks for the presentation – short and focused. I’m off to check out the relevanssi plugin right now… looks amazing!!!
Michael, You’re quite welcome. 🙂 Relevanssi is amazing; enjoy!
Thanks so much for posting this!
I had some skipping issues when watching yesterday, but it’s smooth as silk for me today.

Hey Eric, they really give you only 5 minutes to explain all that stuff, don’t they? That presentation was something like ‘how to get better in WP in 5 minutes’. Awesome content and I really like it(and learn it) a lot.
Glad you enjoyed it and learned something, Fernando. 🙂
This was one of five or six Ignite sessions at WordCamp Seattle. Each presenter had 5 minutes and 20 slides on a 15 second rotation.
I had to rehearse quite a bit ahead of time to be able to keep up.
Excellent video. Great information. Perfect streaming quality. The info on site searching eye-opening.
Great presentation- any chance the slides could be available as a PDF download? (Or as a blog post? 🙂 )
(woops, should have checked your blog first, it’s there already. Would be good to know that!)
No problem. I’m happy to convert the slides to PDF and post them too, if you like.
Hey Eric Thanks for the tips and mainly for the written post on yoyur web-site so the deaf can know what this video is all about. It’s important for accessibility too!
You’re quite welcome, Diego. 🙂
