[09:40:34 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> you reference a could JIRAs in it that don't exist

[09:40:36 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> 5104

[09:40:59 CDT(-0500)] <cindyli> ah, missed some places. one sec

[10:19:27 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> anastasiac: hi

[10:19:56 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> hi, mancoolgunda1

[10:22:52 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> anastasiac: I wanted to discuss a few things about Fluid Player. I had submitted my proposal on "Media Player Update for ATutor" which involves integration of Fluid Player as a part of the project. I was planning to add more detail on the aspect of intgration of Fluid Player (like a little plan) in my proposal.

[10:23:47 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> mancoolgunda1, I can certainly try to answer your questions

[10:24:08 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> I was talking to fluid-devs on Friday and colinclark told me that you have done a lot of work integrating the Video Player into WordPress recently.

[10:24:19 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> I wanted to know the issues I would have take care of while integrating Fluid Player with ATutor

[10:25:33 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> mancoolgunda1, I'm not that familiar with the ATutor code, so I can't give very specific thoughts.

[10:25:45 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> There will be two aspects to incorporating the VideoPlayer

[10:26:00 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> 1) the authoring interface, allowing authors to specify the video, captions, etc

[10:26:20 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> 2) the rendering, ensuring the video player is instantiated on the page when users view content

[10:27:00 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> These two parts are pretty independent

[10:27:01 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> our WordPress plugin doesn't have a wysiwig aspect to authoring, so I don't know if that will be possible in ATutor

[10:33:41 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> ok, can you in brief, tell about the issues that you faced in the rendering phase while working on Wordpress?

[10:33:42 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> I just want a basic idea

[10:40:42 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> anastasiac^

[10:40:56 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> mancoolgunda1, sorry, I was in our daily stand-up meeting

[10:41:05 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> we didn't have any particularly difficult issues

[10:41:10 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> np

[10:41:44 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> I don't now if this will be the case in ATutor, but in WordPress, the JavaScript that renders the videoPlayer is generated at render time and injected into the document

[10:42:10 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> that JavaScript is constructed based on the information that the author has provided

[10:42:31 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> mancoolgunda1, have you looked at the WordPress code?

[10:42:47 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> https://github.com/inclusive-design/infusion-videoPlayer-wp-plugin/tree/development

[10:43:02 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> no, thanks I will look into it to get a clear picture.

[10:43:09 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> ok, so I need to check if there would be any issues regarding rendering when I deal with Fluid integration into ATutor.

[10:43:47 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> right. I can't imagine there would be any particular problems

[10:44:32 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> you also need to make sure the necessary javascript and css are included in the header, etc.

[10:45:49 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> Also for authoring interface part, I think I need to create some sort of UI, where instructors would be given many options like browse for captions, transcript file etc, and then depending on the options provided by the instructor, I need to initialize the fluid player accordingly and create a Javascript call accordingly, Have I got it right?

[10:47:22 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> mancoolgunda1, that sounds about right. For captions and transcripts, the VideoPlayer supports both local files or subtitles that have been created in Amara, so you will need to allow instructors to specify either one of those.

[10:47:44 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> The VideoPlayer will soon be able to query Amara automatically for any subtitles

[10:48:02 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> once that functionality is, instructors won't need to have that option

[10:48:22 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> that will hopefully be functional within the next month

[10:49:37 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> nice (smile)

[10:49:43 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> yes (smile)

[10:50:26 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> anastasiac: thanks a lot for the quick response

[10:50:47 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> no problem, it will be great to see the VideoPlayer working in ATutor

[10:50:52 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> feel free to ask any more questions any time

[10:52:12 CDT(-0500)] <mancoolgunda1> sure,

[12:47:38 CDT(-0500)] <yzen> cindyli1: ping

[12:47:47 CDT(-0500)] <cindyli1> yzen: pong

[12:48:18 CDT(-0500)] <yzen> cindyli1: uioptions, is currently demoed/used in 3 forms is that right ? : full no priview, with preview and fat panel ?

[12:49:13 CDT(-0500)] <cindyli1> yes, yzen, but full no preview and with preview have been moved into manual tests, intended to be replaced by new designs

[12:50:30 CDT(-0500)] <yzen> cindyli1: right, so the fat panel is the only case where changes are reflected with page enhancer right away right? the other to do it only on save/reset/fetch ?

[12:52:48 CDT(-0500)] <cindyli1> yes, yzen

[12:53:17 CDT(-0500)] <yzen> cindyli1: cool

[12:53:19 CDT(-0500)] <yzen> thanks

[12:53:24 CDT(-0500)] <cindyli1> np

[14:53:39 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Hi there cindyli1

[14:53:54 CDT(-0500)] <cindyli1> hi, Bosmon

[14:53:59 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> Just to confirm, all the test cases for the IoCSS support are all in the same branch, regardless of JIRA number?

[14:54:07 CDT(-0500)] <cindyli1> yes, Bosmon

[14:54:11 CDT(-0500)] <Bosmon> ok, cool
