Trial and Error

What's on the Other Side?

April 9, 2007 12:50 AM

CBS sends out periodic emails promoting the offerings on its innertube web site. I recently clicked through on one of the links in the email to check out “Ghost Whisperer: The Other Side.” It’s an online companion to the on-air show. I’ve never seen the CBS show “Ghost Whisperer,” but I will say this about the online half – the link from the email escorted me directly to the online show, no questions asked.

The player worked great, with the pause feature operating at lightning speed. And, get this, I could move the scroll bar to jump ahead on the video without any pausing, stuttering or momentary freeze-ups. So I think I’ll try the full episode player tomorrow.
