Have you tried the new fan application yet?

I am trying to gather some feedback and/or feature requests on our major Flex application, the Fan. The feature page is here on the CIM labs page. I have a big “how we did it” entry here.

Remember its still an alpha launch so things may act a little wonky once in a while.

If you have any suggestions, please leave them as a comment here.

thanks

  1. I really like the FAN 4 website however there are a few things that I think can be improved.

    1. Tooltips tend to show text first then background. Especially on the right side when navigating related videos.

    2. I wouldnt mind a setting to turn off tool tips.

    3. I got the following error when a new video automatically played:
    Error #2044: Unhandled securityError:. text=Error #2048: Security sandbox violation: http://preview.comcast.net/fan4/Fan4.swf cannot load data from http://cdn2.adsdk.com/CDN/103158/1×1.gif.

    4. You might want to have a button that stops all videos from playing and one to start it.

    5. When i remove video from a playlist and its currently playing shouldnt it stop playing?

    6. After I removed all videos and I let the application sit.. I got another error:
    TypeError: Error #1010: A term is undefined and has no properties.

  2. Jonathan,
    Thanks for the feedback, that really helps. I am tracking a few of the bugs you mentioned but the tooltip options weren’t part of them. I will add them to my list.
    Thanks again. Any feedback i get is very valuable.

  3. Two things I noticed with a quick glance was the

    .XML text overlaps the cbs logo sometimes

    .Once the second video began the cbs text of the disappeared just leaving the grey box.

    I do like it though and will now think about building a video player in flex vs flash also
