This will also translate over to the embedded player eventually as well. This is good for us as it will be easier to watch embedded streams within our articles, regardless if its our channel or someone else we are embedding. The roll-out is slow though, with currently 2% of the streamers getting the new controls, currently available on channel pages. Over the next few days we should see the new controls spread to all players and users. Then it is on to the next step in replacing Flash, the stream itself.
