[09:31:57 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> heidiv: how's the carousel stuff going?

[09:32:46 CDT(-0500)] <heidiv> michelled wasn't working on carousel - implementing font icons.

[09:33:08 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> ah, right - is that going ok?

[09:33:14 CDT(-0500)] <heidiv> sounds like we can move ahead with implementing the accessible carousel jhung rec'd in the list email tho, no one opposed

[09:33:36 CDT(-0500)] <heidiv> michelled yep, i'll send a pull req for the UIO font icons on monday. (working on clinic today)

[09:33:52 CDT(-0500)] <heidiv> and then get them into the other components as well

[09:35:21 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> cool! thx heidiv

[09:35:36 CDT(-0500)] <heidiv> np

[10:17:21 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> michelled, yzen1, I've created a JIRA for the issue we discussed, about third parties access UIEnhancer settings: http://issues.fluidproject.org/browse/FLUID-5016 Should I add it to the Floe Iteration page

[10:17:24 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> ?

[13:31:33 CDT(-0500)] <thealphanerd> colinclark: hows it going?

[13:42:31 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> ALFA

[13:42:33 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> Hi

[14:49:47 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> hello everyone

[14:50:02 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> I wanted to discuss a few things about Fluid Player.

[14:50:57 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> So I had submitted my proposal on "Media Player Update for ATutor" which involves integration of Fluid Player as a part of the project.

[14:51:05 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> sure, mancoolgunda1

[14:51:17 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> michelled leads up most of the Video Player development

[14:51:23 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> but several of us know lots about it

[14:52:06 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> I was planning to add more detail on the aspect of intgration of Fluid Player (like a little plan) in my proposal.

[14:52:22 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> cool

[14:52:52 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> So I think I would need to build a UI which needs to provide options to specify things like subtitles src, transcripts src

[14:54:33 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> and then the js file can use these values to build the video player.

[14:56:12 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> The UI needs to cover many options I feel.

[14:58:00 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> This is what comes to my mind. I plan to elaborate things in my proposal using mockups maybe of the UI, or the options, menus which the UI provides. Am I missing out anything as far as integration of Fluid Player with ATutor is concerned?

[15:07:34 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> ^colinclark

[15:09:16 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> mancoolgunda1: Maybe you can elaborate a bit more? I'm not totally sure I follow

[15:17:17 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> So this project(Media Player Update for ATutor) deals with updating Flow Player, default player for ATutor. One aspect of the project also deals with integration of Fluid Player and potentially adopting the Fluid Player as the default media player..

[15:20:48 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> colinclark: I wanted to know the issues I would have take care of while integrating Fluid Player with ATutor

[15:22:38 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> michelled: Any thoughts? ^

[15:24:03 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> mancoolgunda1: do you mean issues with the player itself? or integrating it into ATutor?

[15:24:57 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> issues with integrating Fluid Player into ATutor.

[15:25:18 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> Will you be replacing the existing Flow Player with the Fluid Video Player, mancoolgunda1?

[15:25:27 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> Or somehow using portions of it alongside the Flow Player

[15:27:37 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> colinclark: ok, so I discussed that with my mentor and he said that it is more about adding the Fluid Player as another option for displaying video. So a user-preference would be added to choose between Flow player and Fluid Player.

[15:27:58 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> ah, nice

[15:28:19 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> anastasiac, who is away today, has done a lot of work integrating the Video Player into WordPress recently

[15:28:38 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> so she can give you a summary of the kind of work she's done to integrate the Video Player

[15:28:47 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> I imagine the work will entail creating an ATutor Module

[15:28:57 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> that imports the Video Player's necessary scripts and HTML templates

[15:29:19 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> ok

[15:30:44 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> would anastasiac be online tomorrow around this time?

[15:32:36 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> It's Friday, so she probably won't be back until Monday

[15:32:52 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> ok,

[15:32:52 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> michelled: You recently reviewed anastasiac's pull request

[15:33:04 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> was there anything notable in there that you think mancoolgunda1 might benefit from?

[15:33:17 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> is it worth sending along the WordPress code as an example?

[15:35:39 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> colinclark: it's probably best for anastasiac to give some guidance - the pull request was rather large with most of the interesting parts related to putting in an administrative interface to wordpress for adding videos

[15:35:50 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> ah, cool

[15:36:12 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> In general, mancoolgunda1, I think it should be pretty straightforward to integrate the Video Player

[15:36:39 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> yes, I agree

[15:36:48 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> take a look at the video player demo for an example: http://build.fluidproject.org/videoPlayer/videoPlayer/demos/Mammals.html

[15:37:15 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> or the bare bones example: http://build.fluidproject.org/videoPlayer/videoPlayer/demos/VideoPlayer.html

[15:40:25 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> ok, actually I was told in my proposal feedback to provide more detail on the integration part of Fluid Player, like a little plan. Yes, I checked out those samples, actually have cloned the repo on my local. I even looked into the code and saw that calling a video player is simple enough, by specifying various options in the script.

[16:23:08 CDT(-0500)] <thealphanerd> hello again colinclark

[16:42:22 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> hey

[16:45:13 CDT(-0500)] <thealphanerd> hows it going?

[16:45:19 CDT(-0500)] <thealphanerd> you get that email with the gist link?
