One of the things that I did not like about Joost was it needed a client to work. On my PCs that client frequently crashed so I uninstalled it and did not bother to try it much.
Now they’ve converted to a Flash based web page. I’ve just watched some of my favorite scenes from The Professional and a CSI episode. So far there is a brief ad before the show but it’s not intrusive. It went from a kludgy client to a simple web based service.
I don’t think I’ll watch whole movies on Joost but it just got added to my list of fun time wasters.
