new vogroll

hi all from my research blog (http://hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vlog/vlog_archive/000419.html) code for embedding coming shortly. will make a prototype for version 3.x this weekend... the entry: Last week I made vogroll version 1.0. A QuickTime based movie that is the video equivalent of a blogroll. This first version consisted only of still images with a simple mouse in event which rolled over the image. Clicking would take you to that individual's videoblog. Well, it didn't take long to realise that what I'd done could just as easily be done by a basic image map, so really not a lot had been achieved by doing it QuickTime. Which leads us to Vogroll 2.0. Why a whole iteration? Because this one is now video. This time mousing in to each person's image will cause a brief 3 second clip to play. Mousing out restores the image. This works for each person in the vogroll. This makes the vogroll much more, well, voglike. The video that I've used I've just lifted from each individual's videoblog. The one I did I did specifically for this project, so I'm inviting those who want to use it to shoot and make available a three second clip, which is what I'll include. The total file is currently 260Kb. I reckon I can shave a few Kb off that, but the problem with a vogroll like this is that as more are added to it, the file size rapidly only becomes... [View]

It's because you have a relative path name: VALUE="/vog/vogroll/vogRoll2.mov" The code works much better when the full path name is included like this: <OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" WIDTH="60" HEIGHT="405" CODEBASE="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab"&gt; <PARAM name="SRC" VALUE="http://hypertext.rmit.edu.au/vog/vogroll/vogRoll2.mov"&gt; <PARAM name="AUTOPLAY" VALUE="false"> <PARAM name="CONTROLLER" VALUE="false"><EMBED SRC="http://hypertext.rmit.edu.au//vog/vogroll/vogRoll2.mov&quot; WIDTH="60" HEIGHT="405" AUTOPLAY="true" CONTROLLER="false" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/"></EMBED></ OBJECT> > --------- [ Web Sites ] --------- Steve Garfield Video Production http://stevegarfield.com Video Blog http://stevegarfield.blogs.com/videoblog/ Weblog: Off On A Tangent http://offonatangent.blogspot.com/ [View]
