Halo Debuts New 'World Of Halo' Stop-Motion Video Series, Episode 1 Available Now

While we continue to wait for a Halo Infinite release date other than the anticipated November 2021 window, the team over at 343 Industries has a different sort of Master Chief-inspired project to share. Using the Jazwares action figure line, the stop-motion series called World of Halo just debuted its first episode. You can watch it below. Spoiler alert: it's pretty awesome. The Jazwares line is surprisingly detailed for being a mere four inches tall and seeing them in action in this format is kind of cool to see as a Halo fan myself. From a fight to death with the iconic energy sword to seeing some of the most recognizable enemies in the Halo-verse, the first episode of this series has us pretty jazzed to see what's next. Especially being a massive collector.  [embedded content] Master Chief's badassery, glowing energy swords, grunts screaming in panic - what more could you want? Other than a Halo Infinite gameplay trailer, but don't worry about that. 343 Industries has recently confirmed that a new gameplay reveal is coming this Summer to show off what the team has been working on since criticism hit about its next-gen graphics.  In other Halo news, 343 recently shared off a new screenshot from the main campaign, which you can see here, detailing the various PC-specific settings for resolution. The team also confirmed that Halo Infinite will include cross-progression and crossplay between Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC, so that anyone can enjoy the latest game without worried about being tied to one specific platform.  To learn more about Halo Infinite before the gameplay trailer drops in the coming months, you can scope out our dedicated game hub. From fan desires to inside looks, catch up on the latest news right here.  Thoughts on Halo Infinite and the latest stop-motion video with World of Halo?

    14 picture-in-picture video stops dealing with YouTube&#039 iOS;s mobile website (updated)

    You may need to wait some time in order to use iOS 14’s picture-in-picture support to view YouTube videos. MacRumors (via 9to5Mac) has pointed out that YouTube’s mobile website stopped supporting iOS 14’s PIP mode, at the very least free of charge users. Check it out and a video is only going to pop out before it returns to the net page briefly.

    YouTube Premium subscribers experienced success in using PIP, but it’s not yet determined if YouTube is deliberately restricting the feature. iPad users, who go to the desktop version of the web site typically, haven’t had issues. The native YouTube app doesn’t currently support PIP on iPhone irrespective of your Premium status.

    We’ve asked YouTube for comment.

    It wouldn’t be surprising if the move was intentional. YouTube Premium offers background playback as you of its major perks, also it wouldn’t be difficult to utilize PIP on the internet to negate that perk. Still, which could easily be frustrating – it could total YouTube removing functionality that has been already present, briefly however.

    This also comes as promised YouTube 4K support on Apple TV has yet to materialize. The video giant promised that it’s still coming “soon” via an updated app, nonetheless it wasn’t ready alongside tvOS 14 like some had hoped. You’ll need to put up with 1080p for a time longer.

    Update 9/20 2PM ET: YouTube told Engadget that background playback is really a Premium feature. Put simply, don’t expect the functionality to come back free of charge users on the mobile web or elsewhere.
