Link works fine for me, anyone else having issues?

Also music is entirely subjective. Some people love the music choice, others dont. Because everyone likes different music, the solution is obviously to make more trailers with music you yourself like. Its half of why i made this one.
nope no issues here check you have flash player installed and if you have a addon called Flash blocker press the play button ontop of the window or disable the addon.

Everyone's taste in music is different yes. But this is not about that. What you did here is slap a random track of music you like onto an MWLL video, with no reasoning whatsoever. Or at least it feels that way.

While music is subjective, I am sure you realize that there is a general consensus of what type of music fits better to a certain video (for the majority of the population at least). Would you, as a creator, accompany a battle scene in Star Wars with Justin Bieber's 'Baby' for instance? I hope not. Or do you really associate a raging battle between huge mechanisms of war with... Trip Hop.

I still think that Ravir's video is the best of all made so far for MWLL. The music was well chosen and coordinated perfectly with the hit sounds in the game ::)

Yes, i do. Thats the point. A lot of other people do too.  :P

I prefer this kind of music while blowing faces off mechs, too.

while i find the music and the content cut to it appropriately, from my end i did not like it as much because i can't stand metal.
This is not a statement on the trailer as a whole, i find it to be very good work.

So the taste argument will always be there, and i would say better have one more trailer with "random" music, than not at all.

The editors job is to make the song work together with the video, thats where Matt needs to improve a bit. If the editor does his job right, even a BA trailer featuring the my little pony song would work ;-)

For my part, I like the song; I enjoy trip-hop; and I also like listening to it while blowing stuff up.

I also enjoy this video, even if I agree with NoZart that the cuts away from killed 'mechs are a bit too quick. Otherwise, great job Matt. :)

Yeah i get what you guys meant about the cuts from the kills. In my first version i had a really bad clip in there, i ended up replacing it with those kills and i guess i didnt notice that lack of flow after cutting it together.

True the taste in music is as varied as we are in numbers, and none can ever please the entire hoard, ever. The only thing I'd look for in a video for a game is that the music accompanies the content as best possible. It really doesn't matter which genre is used imho, it could easily be Kremer, Glass or Merzbow* that was used instead, though we cannot use such for official videos only for fan made creations.

*Disclaimer: Extreme noise, only for core fans.

That crossair/elevation/direction hud in 1:07 looks great (crysis own?)
MWLL always felt like a game from another era. From the golden age of PC games
