  1. The case against animated page flipping publications

    During a recent meeting I was asked to explore the possibility of presenting existing PDF newsletters in a flipping book format. You know the sort; online interactive magazine layouts presented as a 3D book where pages are navigated to and animated in a realistic flipping motion. This wasn't new ground for me as I'd already completed the exercise (and dismissed them in favour of PDF) 5 years ago, but the topic had raised its head again, and this time it was interesting to relook at things from a ...

  2. News from YouTube

    I wanted to post the news some time ago, but I was afraid I was wrong. So I waited.
    It seems, however, to be the truth and nothing but the truth (for the time being): YouTube have removed their ads from all videos except the ones that have (And even there, the ads are gone when we use IE or Firefox).

  3. A plugin for the JW Player

    A plugin that allows us to (i) create a customized playlist for chromeless YouTube-videos (using the JW player), (ii) place info about each video at the top of it and (iii) chop the video's - which makes it possible to create new YouTube-video's out of existing ones.

    Demo and explanations here.

  4. Flash is NOT a cure-all

    Over the years, as an intermittent Dynamic Drive Flash Guru, I have noticed a trend in utilizing Flash. This trend is one where Flash is being used in ways it probably shouldn't.

    I am here to correct a few things. First of all, let's note that Flash is a tool. Flash, by its nature was developed to be a tool marketed for designers NOT developers.

  5. Prevent users to open a video on the video-providing site (in a new window)

    Inserting these two lines to your include code for video's:

    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="never">
    <param name="allowNetworking" value="internal">

    prevents flash apps from running scripts or having outbound links.

    This is a very handy method for preventing users to open the video on the video-providing site (in a new window) when they accidentally click on the video screen.
