Gallery Goodies for all

March 26, 2004

I found some really good information online about the open source project Gallery. I had some trouble installing the application under my new webhost and what did I find? but a nice set of instructions for Installing Gallery at DreamHost.

I also came across an MT plugin for integrating Gallery with Moveable Type. I can’t wait to try it out!!

Quicktime Javascript Examples

March 1, 2004

I had a request to post some examples of Javascript controls for Quicktime movies. Here are the code samples.

This is the Javascript that controls to use:

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
/* a javascript function that takes a QT movie and calls its "Play" method */
function PlayIt(anObj)
{
anObj.Play();
}
/* a javascript function that takes a QT movie and calls its "Stop" method */
function StopIt(anObj)
{
anObj.Stop();
}
/* a javascript function that takes a QT movie and calls its "Rewind" method */
function StartIt(anObj)
{
anObj.Rewind();
}
/* a javascript function that takes a QT movie and calls its "Reverse" method */
function ReverseIt(anObj)
{
anObj.Step(-1);
}
/* a javascript function that takes a QT movie and calls its "Reverse" method */
function ForwardIt(anObj)
{
anObj.Step(1);
}
//-->

</script>

This is the QuickTime embedding sample:

<object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"
 codebase="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab" id="movie1" height="240" width="320"> 
<param name="src" value="../movies/ax.mov">
<param name="AUTOPLAY" value="false">
<param name="CONTROLLER" value="false">
<embed src="../movies/ax.mov" name="movie1" enablejavascript="true" controller="false" autoplay="false" height="240" width="320">
</object>

This is a sample form containing all play buttons:

<form name="theform">
<input name="reverse" value="Rwd" onclick="javascript:ReverseIt(document.movie1);" type="button">
<input name="play" value="Play" onclick="document.movie1.Play();" type="button">
<input name="stop" value="Stop" onclick="document.movie1.Stop();" type="button">
<input name="forward" value="Fwd" onclick="javascript:ForwardIt(document.movie1);" type="button">
<input name="begin" value="Start Over" onclick="javascript:StartIt(document.movie1);" type="button">
</form>

Quicktime JavaScript Controls

October 5, 2003

I have been trying to use JavaScript to control QuickTime within the new Safari browser from Apple. The only browser running on OSX that the controls worked for was Netscape. A summary from Apple’s Web site shows this to be true:

  • QuickTime 4.1 is scriptable using Netscape 4 or 5 on Windows and
    Macintosh

  • QuickTime 6 is scriptable using Internet Explorer on Windows, and
    most or all Netscape or Mozilla-based browsers on Windows or Macintosh.

  • Plug-ins are not scriptable using Internet Explorer for Macintosh
  • Cleaning up CSS

    September 27, 2003

    Well, I am cleaning up some Style Sheets this morning and found some problems in the sheets and in my html. The real problem is that no browser caught the problem except for Safari on Mac OS X and Opera on all platfroms.
