The old WCM was infinitely better, this new design may look more modern and flashy but it really wasn't a huge deal. The display of the videos pre-reno was a lot cleaner and easier to navigate. Not only that but the uploader could choose a variety of sources.. Now the streams are slow and it's frustrating to try and watch a video.
If anyone else feels the same way speak up.. If you don't care well then you don't care..
Hell yea! WCMovies sux after the new downgrade, I hardly visit the site anymore. It's too frustrating. Seriously, change it back to the pro site it was, or just do something. Can't you like have both sites up and then you can choose which site 'design' you wanna use or something ^^
Its too commercialized now. Since everybody wants you to stream their movies, I suggest you just use youtube for now on instead of WCM. You can stream in HD on youtube without lag, and tons of videos are being posted there now instead of here. Grats on selling out like everybody else WCM.
For what it's worth commercials before every movie have made me inclined to remove my WCM bookmark for the first time in three years. You may as well just require people to pay for premium to use the site.
I don't mind the ads so much as the unbearable buffer times on videos. I could open the exact same video on any of the other big stream sites (youtube, wegame, wowannex) and it will buffer/load faster than the playback of the video.
But using WCM streaming I have to wait AT LEAST 15 minutes to watch a 10 minute movie uninterrupted.
It is absolutely ridiculous.
I usually prefer WCM because it houses all the newest WoW movies but more and more I find myself clicking on a new video only to see they don't have a mirror to one of the previously mentioned sites. At this point I usually just navigate away from the website, skipping the movie entirely.
EDIT: It seems this problem is never really addressed because this topic is almost 2 months old. Sorry for the necro but this website is turning to garbage.

I've been a member since 2005 (WoW's release), and I must agree with these people. I've recently included one of your promo clips in a video I've created so I can get a premium account thinking that it would make the site better...
Boy was I ever wrong...
- I cannot edit my uploaded video's title
- Any changes I make to my profile are not updated, and if they are updated it's a week later
- Trying to navigate this site WITHOUT a FireFox addon like AdBlock is near impossible
- Stream times are garbage
- The site is incredibly buggy and layouts glitch out frequently
This will be the last time I include WarcraftMovies promo clips in any my videos. Good job guys in ruining a perfectly good website.
