Cosmetic tweaks to the player made – icons for thumbs, positioning elements. Live demo now running POC stories
Still a couple of tweaks to do to the player, plus the generator. Until then tho heres a widescreen story
Working on the preview engine showed that while being able to preload content is great, holding it all in memory tends to make things chug a bit, therefore I’ve been reworking the master engine to accommodate caching of a set of images, unloading any that are out of the immediate scope, not watertight yet (drop down causes issues) but close.
Update – No longer stretches navigation content in fs mode.
No more additions, just testing/fixing from this point. More…
New vers with a few tweaks. With homepage+embed active in player below.
Embed code (displayed using the preserve code formatting wp plugin).
Clicking the mouse without dragging brings up the thumbnail list.
Using the mousewheel moves between thumbs
Click again to jump to page.
This is a test to see how the preloader/caching is handling the load.
This version doesnt support mac wheels
Note: I used AEN’s accelerated scrollwheel as a basis then reworked to my need.
Minor update – added an EMBED CODE ability. Could be handy, see below
INCLUDE EMBED CODE (default no) Provides a dropdown on the final screen which shows the embed code used, for others to be able to copy/paste to run the player and content on their site. Warning: using the player from their site will still call the preview.swf file from your specified player location.
Note: A player that is created from the embed code provided by the player will NOT have the embed code displayed as the
required parameter is not included in the supplied code.
Newer. Rather than bolt the preview engine onto the existing code, I’ve stripped the current version back to run only as a fullscreen engine. This means it becomes a straight object/embed situation simliar to youtube. The ability to post more than one clip also worthy… see below.
Files available for download (swf player, readme, generator html) as a zip here
If you feel like using the current stable test version.
Note: ID tag limit with current vers
I’ve just finished work on the inital preview mode: Allowing others to share/promote a comic on their own wordpress blog.
A few things to tweak, but working as a concept.
Heres a test of the preview mode. See below:
