Vodo.net is a great idea; use #BitTorrent to distribute indie movies, docos, and series, much of it #CC licensed, and collect $ for creators
Problem is #Vodo is styled like an illegal download site, with almost no up-to-date information about the project or the people behind it.

Is the JS Vodo runs in my browser free code? Who knows? Are they going to use #WebTorrent to stream video via BitTorrent as well? Who knows?

Does Vodo have a blog for news about the project? Where? How do I contact their developers? Lacking all this, the site seems so ... amateur

Don't get me wrong, amateur stuff is great, it's how people learn skills, gain experience, and most importantly, participate in culture ...

... but if you're competing with entrenched #BigMedia, trying to prove a whole new video funding model, looking amateur won't fly Vodo

@vorticalbox have you looked into how well #WebTorrent works on mobile devices? Hang on, when you say scale, are you talking page layout?

@strypey 100% the layout. Not really any excuses for not have a reactive layout.

once I have time I'll have a look on my desktop

@vorticalbox it's no better. I suspect these folks need some hackers and designers to help them bring Vodo.net into the 21st century ;)
