Presentations: Post-launch update
A few weeks ago, we launched a brand new version of Wiredrive Presentations. Here’s a list of some of the issues we’ve uncovered and resolved since the launch:
- The fullscreen function was only available for Quicktime videos in OS X. We’ve built a new fullscreen option that works on all audio and video assets across all current browsers for both OS X and Windows.
- Fill/Max selections in the file detail carried over when switching between files. They now reset for each asset.
- Reels that had an image or PDF first in the sequence were advancing to the second file before the presentation had finished loading. The auto-advance timer now initiates once the page has fully loaded.
- The HTML5 video player was not playing all videos correctly in Chrome because of a bug with the browser. We’ve reconfigured our playback strategy to use a different video player in Chrome until the issue is resolved.
- The modified RSS URL format was not compatible with new reels (existing RSS-powered sites were not affected).
- Users were unable to send single file presentations if the file did not have a custom thumbnail image.
- Internet Explorer 9 was not auto-advancing in Library reels when using Quicktime.
- The Podcast button was not automatically opening iTunes.
- Comments in Gallery presentations could not be saved in Internet Explorer 7.
- Empty reels were showing an endless loading indicator.
- Plain-text Bundle emails did not preserve line breaks.
Style Issues (Fixed)
- Larger customer logos created a smaller video playback area from some users. The header now reduces (depending on logo size) to increase the size of the video playback area.
- Thumbnail images in Bundle emails were reduced. They have been resized to their original, larger dimensions.
- The “View” buttons in Bundle presentation emails were replaced with text links. The text links have since been removed in favor of re-adding the “View” buttons.
- The font size in the message body of Bundle emails was too large and has been reduced.
- Some videos in Firefox displayed a white border when clicked.
- HTML5 audio files displayed a clear drop shadow in Safari.
