Apparently PlayOn is still commited to providing HD per this recent post on their forum: http://www.playon.tv/forum/help/ins...-mplayontv-try-maxthon-cloud-br#comment-36924 That post also says they're working on something for Chromecast and that they don't plan to have a supported PC browser client. (XBMC can be used for that). I've used PlayOn for 1.5 years now. It's not perfect but if you have major problems with video buffering and pauses it's probably not the PlayOn software at fault -- rather some problem with your PC, network, or internet. While support via their forum can sometimes be hit-or-miss, they have a very effective support problem reporting system built into the software itself. You provide just a few details and the system sends that plus a detailed set of log information into their support system, creating a ticket. I don't think it's ever been more than a few hours before I've had a response using this.
