Hi Kevin,

Carlos,

How about 
Javascript methods:	getTime(), getDuration(), getPercent()

Those are in CVS now.

  
Very Cool!  I'll try it out this weekend! :)

Fullscreen - tried to make it work from the keyboard... think the GUI is now 
intercepting it.. So I'll have to do a few things to make that work, 
javascript will do it eventually.

Why is streaming without caching so important? You using diskless terminals on 
a high speed lan? 
Exactly, and the clips are huge!  (well, pretty big anyway) They're MPEG1, and may get as big as 350MB.  That's a lot to buffer in RAM on a commodity thin client running remote-boot Linux.

Would it be difficult to implement?
Also, did you know that mplayerplug-in respects the 
environment variable TMPDIR (I think) might be TMP, be awhile since I used 
it.
  
Well, I'm currently using /dev/shm for all my disk caching, and the system gets unstable if more than half of the system RAM is allocated to the ram disk.  So with 512MB of RAM, I'm limited to a clip size of 256MB.

showControls() need some work to do that

  
I don't see a big hurry for that, it's something that we use in Windows, but isn't strictly required, since the arrow buttons (and mouse wheel) give plenty of control when needed.

Thanks!
Carlos

Kevin,

I have really been quite impressed with how fast this project has been
moving,  You guys do a great job!  (Maybe you need more of a challenge =)

Here are a few things that I would like to see in a Mozilla media plugin
(in order of importance):

1) -http streaming without caching to disk - This might be done with the
idea Alex suggested a while ago:

Kevin,

As a band-aid, you could try to add an option to always pass a URL
directly to mplayer (as is currently done with mms streams).

Alex
      
Except maybe instead of (or in addition to) an option to always pass the
URL to mplayer, have it be more selective, based on the file's mime type
or extension, and have a configuration option like:

     pass2mplayer=mpg,mov,audio/wav,audio/mp3

What do you think?

2) -Javascript methods:
-getTime() (get the current play position time)
-getDuration()  (get the total clip duration)
-showControls()

3) -An option to allow the "F" key to let mplayer's fullscreen to work.

That's all I have for now ;)   Thanks!

Best Regards,
-Carlos

All,

Well now that we have a user interface, most sites working, javascript
functonality. Where should we go from here?

1. Javascript

	What other functions are needed

2. UI improvements?

	Progress bar during play? Or status?
	Progress bar during play should be doable since I just found a feature of
mplayer.

3. What else?

Kevin
