Today I felt like drinking beer and implementing some fun and useless feature, so I came up with … drumroll … drain reels. For any tournaments that have Live Info (gray play icons to the left of the videos) you can now watch just the drains. Yay!
It’s sort of a hidden feature, you can only get there by using the right URL. Feels like by now there are more hidden features than regular ones. One of these days I’m going to write some UI for them all. Today is not that day.
Here are all the drains of Pinburgh 2018: http://pinballvideos.com/e/pinburgh-2018/drainReel
I’m confident you can figure out how to do that for other tournaments.
I suppose you need a halfway decent internet connection so the drain reel won’t be buffer hell. Also, make sure you press “f” on your keyboard to go full screen instead of clicking that nasty full screen button inside the video. This way you get the overlay that tells you what’s going on, and you can use all the nice keyboard shortcuts I made for you. Like, hit enter at any time to watch a slo-mo replay, or hit arrow up a few times to speed those drains up and get it over with already.
