Fosfor UI

Here is the UI for fosfor. I think I will keep with this model for awhile. The buttons light up as you move over them and the control bar only appears when the mouse is over the window. If you don't move the mouse for 3 seconds the control bar and the pointer disappear. Also there is a slight transparency to the control bar so that you can see the video thru the controls.

The audio and subtitle options do work, but for subtitles, sometimes to get the proper one to appear you need to seek in the media. Problem appears to be in gstreamer, but still seeing if I can work around that issue.

Fedora 12, WebCam in Flash

If you are using Fedora 12 and the webcam is not working in Flash applications (the camera is not found). Then add this to $HOME/.bash_profile


If you are on a 32bit machine change 'lib64' to 'lib'

Then logout and log back in and your webcam should start working.

Fosfor Widgets - Implemented

I was able to get the widgets finished up early this weekend and enable them as the main widgets for the fosfor application. So far everything is working pretty decently. I have some ideas I still want to try and see if they work better but I'm happy so far.

One idea I have is to only show the controls when the mouse is over the media and to have it fade in smoothly. I've seen this on a couple of flash animations and it looks nice.

Fosfor now requires

clutter 1.1.2
clutter-gtk 0.90
clutter-gst 0.90

All of these are found in clutter git, and have not been released yet.
