Video Works Catalogue version 2

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

I’ve put up a new version of Video Works Catalogue.

You can now reposition the videos and hide the introductory stuff.

I’ve had to put Video Works Catalogue on hold for a bit. The other day my current approach to organising the video sequences bit a wall when I learned that Youtube playlists can’t hold more than 200 videos. So I guess I have to not rely on Youtube to organise the clips (though still rely on it to store them), and will have to recategorise everything everything (for, what, the fourth time?).

April 2014 update: created a new way to generate ‘playlists’ without using Youtube’s system, but Google doesn’t like the long URLs it generates. Back to the drawing board!, but will probably resume uploading things to it soon.

I’m working on an online version of my video archive. I’ve only uploaded about 100 videos so far, and the website is still in development, but it’s already fun to play around with. Currently you can play 1–3 sequences of videos simultaneously, selecting them by tags.

Things I would like to add include:

  • Make videos autoplay on selection
  • Remove the Youtube ‘chrome’ but still have to remove that Youtube logo
  • Maybe remove ‘related videos’ at the end of the sequences they loop now
  • Allow order of videos to be randomised
  • Allow rearrangement of videos on the screen
  • And, ideally, make the whole thing more dynamic: generate the list of tags and playlists with code, to save myself some work.
