  1. OT:Request for a favor 2

    If you have the time, I would appreciate you watching the test audio slide
    show I've put together in the new "playerless" QCShow web-format. It is
    designed to work with the three primary browsers, IE, FF, and Safari (it works
    to a degree with Google Chrome, although it has an obvious pecadillo, which
    you'll see if you run it there; it doesn't work at all with Opera due to bugs in
    Opera's code, which have been reported).

    Based on your and others' previous comments, I've spent a fair amount of time
    rewriting the code.

    This new audio slide show pushes the boundaries of what you can do using
    HTML, CSS, DOM, and Javascript, and presents 69 high-resolution, large
    images in 2.5 minutes, perfectly synchronized to a music score.

    One of the design criteria I want to maintain is that there should be no
    preloading or buffering required before the presentation begins (presuming that
    you have broadband). This presentation really pushes that requirement, and I
    may have to put a preload subroutine in the code yet, but it's not a problem
    for a standard PowerPoint lecture, where things move more slowly.

    The new presentation is at:

    http://67.41.4.238/newtest/iya/iya.html

    I would greatly appreciate hearing of any difficulties that you might have.

    BTW, this presentation makes heavy use of image blends. Of the browsers, IE
    is the slowest and does the least good job at this task. Safari is the fastest
    and does a magnificient job when run on an Intel processor (either PC or Mac).
    If you have the time, download Safari+Quicktime and watch the presentation
    using that browser. Firefox lies in the performance middle.

    Wirt;

    It does not work in Netscape 7.2.
    In IE, after several minutes of downloading the images nothing further
    happens. A black image on the left, on the right 3 arrows. Even after
    clicking one of the arrows, nothing happens.

    Olav.

  3. Re: OT:Request for a favor 2

    Works like a charm.

    Audio and video both stunningly clear.

    I'm using WinXPP/SP3, with IE version 7 (Version 7.0.5730.13
    to be exact).

    The only possible issue I had - I could not see the video in
    full-screen mode. I'm not sure if I should have been able to. I tried
    to double-click on the screen and that action simply stopped the
    presentation. Clicking on the forward arrow resumed it from that point.
