They were so close of getting things right with their backpedaling and then they decide to switch the platform who knows why. Should have kept it in youtube for now and make transitions later (if they really want it) when everything else is working.

Perhaps when the stream is more established and has better/more numbers, ads will get plugged into that spot automatically with little/no effort from Dodge, Jonny, or anyone on the production side.

If you've ever watched something like ESPN's streaming platform, or Hulu with commercials...the ads have little to do with the show itself. They're just plugged in by the platform automatically. I may be wrong, but I think that's what this "foxbat" thing is all about. And those ads don't show up on Youtube if they try to stream there (as we saw with the WACO coverage).
Thanks, I have YouTube red (no commercials). So I'll probably stick with that.

I tried to go to the website, got a blank white page with an error message.

Anyone got a cookie for me?

Wow, kept clicking the stream, F5 and cursed a bit and stream started to work again, and now with 1080p (previously I was only able to get 720).

Roku stream went down for a bit as well but now it's back. Just a guess, but I'm betting they reset the stream to fix the frame rate issue. Whatever they did, it looks waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better now.
