In attempt to keep Artiss YouTube Embed as streamlined and slick as possible I’m thinking of removing a couple of features in the future – these will have a big impact on complexity and file size. However, I need to know if you use the features and whether you want them removed or not.
To this end, I’ve set up 2 simple polls below – please vote and let me know your feelings!
But first, a quick explanation of the 2 features, in case you’re not sure what I’m referring to, and why I think they should be removed…
- The OBJECT player displays the video as Flash using the HTML OBJECT tag. This means if Flash doesn’t work on the display device then nothing appears. The alternative IFRAME player displays the same player by default but will fall back to an HTML5 player, if required, allowing the video to be shown on non-Flash devices such as iPhones. The IFRAME player is the default method used on the YouTube website.
- EmbedPlus allows an advanced, third party YouTube player to be displayed with extra features. However, some of these features are now supported by the standard Player and many of the advanced EmbedPlus features I don’t support through my plugin anyway. It uses the OBJECT player and doesn’t support IFRAME – hence it doesn’t work for those people not using Flash (e.g. all iOS devices).
Depending on the result of this poll I will either remove both the OBJECT player and EmbedPlus or just EmbedPlus, because of EmbedPlus’ reliance on the OBJECT player.
If there are any further features that you think would be ripe for removal, please let me know on the forum.
