The Verge's in house, proprietary Videoes

I have to say, the custom video player fits in aesthetically with the rest of your amazing new site, at least in the appearance. However, I have yet to be able to watch a video on this site in it's entirety. It's simply too slow for me to load, and use realistically. I simply cannot justify waiting 7 and a half minutes for a 2 minute video to load, especially when that's the only way I can get it to play without stuttering. Please, rather than focusing on visual changes to your great interface, work a tad bit on your functionality first. I love your amazing new venture already, but this just kills the entire experience for me.
