PORTAL ENHANCEMENT 12

Postby pete.arnett » Tue Nov 03, 2015 2:23 pm

From the ​portal.ldswebcast.org site

"A small Portal enhancement for the new Streaming Player will be installed on 06NOV2015 between the hours of 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. MST. The enhancement will add an additional video player and give status updates on the new players."

Does this mean we will have HTML5 player on Friday p.m. ?
:D

This is more than confusing. The idea of a stable, standard HTML 5 video player is great. The idea of two doesn't make sense. They don't seem substantially different from the user perspective. Why make two available?

In my testing, the HTML 5 players are both much less resource-intensive than the Silverlight player. I could use old dual core machines to play the HTML 5 stream at the highest settings. This is not the case with the Silverlight player.

I would love more insight into the development process on these and why they are available to use, but not considered ready for prime time.

We are trying to decide which player works best and we put both of them out there for you to use and try and provide feedback on.

Wish granted. We realize there are problems with the silverlight player. We need something better. But we also need a player that is able to provide all the stats so one will be able to see what is going on with it. Stats like what were available with the silverlight player: playback bandwidth, download bandwidth, buffer - audio and video, dropped frames, stall time, etc.
The reason is that they are not considered ready for prime time is that the decision on which player to use was not made and there was some trouble getting the needed stats from the players.
Once the decision has been made on what player to use, it needs to be developed and tested to be adaptive and have an auto reconnect, plus making sure all the stats needed are there.
