UI improvement
« on: December 30, 2011, 09:47:50 pm »
I just watched an episode in here:
http://www.eevblog.com/2011/11/28/eevblog-221-lab-power-supply-design-part-1/

And now I want to see the next episode, or just next blog episode (whatever) - but there is no control to just jump ahead.

I'm surprised that Youtube doesn't have a concept of next/previous episode. Of course there are workarounds like video replies or playlists. Maybe they want to discourage splitting long videos (eg. movies) up in 15 minute segments to avoid the time limit for non-partners?

You could watch the Power Supply Design playlist, although it's in reverse order for some reason. The second episode is actually linked from the description of the first video on Youtube, but the third and fourth are not. I guess it's a pain to go back to the previous episode and add the link.

As for watching from eevblog.com, it's just embedding Youtube, so I'm not sure if Dave should spend the time trying to make it more like Youtube.

There used to be a youtube bug which meant the 'order by date' button for video channels didn't work. (It did do something, but it wasn't putting them in order)

But since the new layout updated recently the bug has been fixed

So if you click on the EEVBLOG youtube channel and select VIDEOS.
Then you can see all the EEVBLOG videos in forward or reverse order right back to the first rigol video :)

There is a Youtube based hot link on the end screen of every video linking to the next one.
Click on the "to be continued" graphic.
Plus the playlist, plus the URL link in the video text.
So plenty of ways to find the next episode.

Dave.

Simple back/forth linking on the site would be nice tho.
I'm watching movies in html5 mode (flash is a royal pita!) - so I don't think the 'to be continued' is clickable ;)
