Youtube embedding prototype: [music replaced, sorry] gathering feedback here. It's 20 minutes old, several obvious things will be fixed. (reload this page to see the "play" buttons)
I do not see the player/preview: is this expected? Clicking on the play button has no effect. ‎· Marco d'Itri
And as soon as I posted my comment the preview has appeared. ‎· Marco d'Itri
Also, this is a really crappy example of italian music. ‎· Marco d'Itri
I don't see preview either ‎· inconsolabilmente Lucretia
Ramazzotti? What have we done to deserve THIS? ‎· Nervo and the Alien Mindbenders
@rfc1036, @lucretia: what browsers/OS do you have? do you have ublock installed? ‎· псы в рапиде
oh, but when I clicked the play button it appeared, and then it worked. (and then I cursed because my ears bled, but that's another story). maybe a little preview would make the videos more noticeable at first glance. ‎· inconsolabilmente Lucretia
Firefox 41 on Linux, with uBlock origin. ‎· Marco d'Itri
This time the preview appeared just after clicking on the play button, maybe it was just server load before? (Do you cache the whole AJAX request?) ‎· Marco d'Itri
@rfc1036: no, the button is completely client-side. Hmmm. ‎· псы в рапиде
Now it still works fast every time. ‎· Marco d'Itri
chrome on win 7 with adblock ‎· inconsolabilmente Lucretia
@lucretia: ok, I see. I use some adblocking too, and it works for me. I'll be making more changes to make it more resistant to adblocking (which is uphill battle), and I'll add more services to the list. (Also, the video player is resized automatically to the maximum size). ‎· псы в рапиде
Is it possible to show the video embedded in a small preview? In a FriendFeed way, you know... :) ‎· Sei Dee già Pulp
@sei-dee_g-pulp: yes, that will be implemented. ‎· псы в рапиде
Thanks. p.s. We hate Ramazzotti, but maybe there's some italian song that we like too. Maybe... ;) ‎· Sei Dee già Pulp
Will it work in the comments too? ‎· ıɔ ǝɯɯǝ ˙ɹp
uh, that's cool! ‎· inconsolabilmente Lucretia
I am not sure if it is a good UX to open the preview for a comment in the same space of the post preview: when there are many comments it requires going back and forward a lot. ‎· Marco d'Itri
