Ça file une bonne claquette dans la tronche de revoir une idée aussi connue refaire surface… Si c’est une copie, les créatifs sont de sacrées peaux de vaches!

Why does allrecipes.com in the potato gun sequence appear at
once, and not the text first and images second? And why does it appear
to render from bottom of the screen to the top?

Chrome sends the rendered page to the video card buffer all at
once, which is why allrecipes.com appears at once, and not with the
text first and images second. Chrome actually paints the page from top
to bottom, but to eliminate a shadow from the driver board, we had to
flip the monitor upside down and set the system preferences in Windows
to rotate everything 180 degrees, resulting in the page appearing to
render from bottom to top.

Powerful Video Encoding Platform: Panda

Post pobrano z: Powerful Video Encoding Platform: Panda

With the rise of HTML5, formats like H.264 or OGG is being used much more everyday besides the well-known FLV (and yes, there is HD too).

In order to be compatible with every device and browser, you may need to serve multiple formats of the same video (like Youtube or Vimeo does).

And, with new videos being uploaded every minute, this can be a complex situation.

Panda Process

Panda is an online platform that enables you to convert videos into multiple formats in the cloud.

With a REST-based API, the platform not only helps encoding the videos, but the uploading process as well.

How Does It Work?

It is actually pretty simple and you can be up & going within hours (including the uploading and encoding of them).

  1. create a form on your site which includes the provided Flash file upload component
  2. user starts uploading the video (Panda displays a progress bar) and, once uploaded, it is added to the encoding queue
  3. Panda submits you the ID of the video being encoded and puts it to your S3 bucket + updates you back when it is completed
  4. That's it, you're ready to stream.

Panda StreamThe platform offers ready to use codes for integration like a jQuery client uploader, PHP, Python libraries and a gem for Ruby.

Rather than pricing the service on a per-video basis, Panda provides you a dedicated cloud where you can encode an unlimited number of videos.

It is currently in public beta and free during this period. After that, a dedicated cloud of any size can be chosen depending on the processing power required.

MooTools Image Slider With HTML5: Gradually

Post pobrano z: MooTools Image Slider With HTML5: Gradually

Gradually is a simple MooTools image slider that can present the images in an order and display an informative text for each (which is sometimes all we need).

It makes use of the HTML5 canvas element to create a beautiful transition effect.

The slider simply requires an unordered list of images (hopefully, with the same size) and uses the alt tag value as the informative text.

MooTools HTML5 Image Slider

Besides the width/height values, the duration and interval when image is switched can be set too.

P.S. The download link at the website currently has a typo (here is the working one).
