COW Tipping
Videos Now Available in Smaller Sizes

While one of the main objectives and uniqueness of our video section was the goal we've had to keep videos as close to the way the user intended as possible, this caused many users frustration in trying to download and playback high resolution videos. To solve this issue we now offer lower resolutions videos by simply clicking on one of the available links directly above the video (Small, Medium, Large and Default). The default is still, generally, the unaltered version that the user uploaded unless they set it to be recompressed by our system.


Search AutoComplete

Creative COW's search engine now includes autocomplete functionality to help you search the site for relevant content. Let us know what you think as we implement this functionality into the rest of our search engines.
