BBC News Suggestions

Category: PersonalChrisM @ 12:42 am

A couple of quick suggestions I’ve been meaning to mention for a while

1) The links on the right hand side of many articles, linking to similar stories, should include articles written AFTER the original story, not just previous ones.

2) The streaming video does not follow the standards set by many others – if your internet connection is too busy, or just slow, the stream is not buffered. This means that the video stops every nine seconds or so of footage, whilst the next section is loaded. Similarly, once a video has been played once, it does not appear to be reused should the video be rewatched immediately. If either of these situations were altered, videos could be watched smoothly by those of us without fat connections.
