I am more and more upset at the french video-sharing site called Wat.tv. I have no idea if it's known outside of France, but here, it's the third largest site of it's kind, behind Youtube and Dailymotion (French too). Wat.tv is also the site which is exclusively showing videos from channels from the TF1 group (one of the largest media groups in France). In other words, you always end at this site! But fuck, the site is so rotten! Half of the time the videos are not playing, and you need to refresh the page several times to get it work. And when it does work, you have to watch endless video ads that you can never skip. By endless, I mean that these ads are often 30 seconds or more long, and this is often that two ads are showing one after each other before you can watch your video, videos which are often shorter! Sometimes the player crashes after the ads, of course. And talking about the player, there is a slider which supposedly lets you jump to particular part of the video, but it NEVER works. All it does it seems is to mess and hang the video. I really have had more than enough of it!

+1 Wat.tv should consider being hosted at OVH, this won't make their video player better, but at least the videos would play smoothly and without hiccups.

I agree with what has been said above. Wat.tv is really a pain in the ass!

This is impossible guys from Wat.tv ever visited their own site! Videos are barely never working! No matter which web browser I am using, disabling or not Adblock Plus.

Wat.tv is now definitively closed. They didn't even try to sell it, and no one was even interested in acquiring it. What a failure!
