Best Practices: Play, Pause, Stop etc.


I'm having trouble finding discussions about transport controls. how do people feel about Play changing to Pause or Stop instead of using separate buttons?

  • Do Pause and Stop have universally understood meanings?
  • What is the difference between them?
  • What do people prefer regarding Rewind and Fast Forward -- when should they jump to the next unit, marker, or section instead of shuttling?

Closed Caption on Mobile Video?

A client we are working with is coming up with a project with a lot of content presented in video, and they want to make sure that a mobile audience can see the videos as well.  We're investigating the best way to present mobile to both a desktop and mobile audience but one of the concerns was how to offer an text-based alternative for those who need it.

Flash Video Players

Hi all,

Is there any patterns or best practice examples for flash video players on corporate sites?
We are running out a project on the company I work for and one of the assets will be the development of a new universal player for the company site, so it would be good to see if anyone have done any study or have any examples in place already.

Thanks a lot.

Youtube new interface

Hello there,

Anyone noticed the redesign on Youtube's player page? I would like to ask what your views are on that.

With plenty of mouse-over events, fade in-outs, reorganized information and the end of internal scroll bar for related content, I personally think it's a good and strategic step towards HTML 5 capabilities that will soon be official and support video plus richer design patterns. But that's just a quick superficial analysis.
