youtube soundclick clapometer?


I review music clips and dance clips. I would like to see a "clapometer"
tool which recorded my reactions as the clip progressed. It could be a
thimbs up and thumbs down icons, recording a timeline of mouseover events as
the clip progressed. This could be useful as feedback to the author, showing
which bits were rated and which not. It could be a useful feature on music
sites and sites like youtube.

Then write one :)

It could be a thimbs up and thumbs down icons, recording a timeline of
mouseover events as the clip progressed. This could be useful as
feedback to the author, showing which bits were rated and which not.

Then it would probably be best to tell the author so it might get
implemented because it would have to be implemented in the page or on a
server somewhere to be very useful. Feedback isn't of much use if there
isn't anyway to get that feedback to the people who need it.

For other purposes, I've been trying to get mouse events to fire when
users mouseover Flash objects, but haven't had any luck.

My understanding is that when a Flash object is present on a page it
is always highest in z-order and all events concerning its area are
directed to it.

I couldn't even get the onfocus event to fire.

Does anyone have any advice that might help both the OP and me?

Thanks!

Ummm, what does your question have to do with a "youtube soundclick
clapometer"? If nothing, then why not start a new thread and ask your
specific question?

Your understanding is wrong.

Yes, get a decent newsreader.

Wot? Soil my hands with work?  :)

(Actually I'd love to be able to)

Until the sites hosting the clips get around to offering such a service the
only way I can see it happening is for a dedicated utility site to do it,
along the lines of tinyurl.

I see the implementation as a small window on the screen at the same time as
the clip is playing which records the real time reaction. At the end the
site produces a URL which can be sent to the author, or any other interested
parties.

My interest stems from rec.music.makers.songwriting, and
www.cerocscotland.com where we want to review clips of new modern jive moves
like:

(Some might understand from this why I would rather be dancing than coding,
but I do remember my geek phase when it was the other way about  :)

Sure, dirty hands are close to the beach and the beach is where I want
my blond. I digress :-)

The problem would be trying to find out who to send it to. The app
itself could be nothing more than a guestbook type page where it records
data. But, once you get the data, how would you know who to send it to?

As I see it we have an author of a clip, seeking reviews. The reviewer opens
the window with the clip and the 'clapometer' window. Reviewer selects a
review schema, then clicks sync button at the start of the clip. The
reviewer then hovers over the appropriate icons as the clip plays, and
clicks end when done.

If the clapometer is part of the host site the reviews can be stored there.
If it is a separate site then the output is the url of the clip and the url
of the review.

this could actually go far beyond a clapometer. My original concept was a
boring graph, but the output could be from a vast selection of schema. At
the fun level we could have clips cheerleaders for approval and animals
doing unspeakable things for scorn, or  animations as imagination allows. At
a more serious level the schema could be used for sports, showing where the
player should have been positioned for example, or for rough drafting
choreography.

I am almost beginning to talk myself into learning javascript and having a
crack at it myself.
