View Full Version : Need some help testing my flash widget

I made this flash widget of Ron Paul and his positions for people to embed on their website. I need some help testing out the functionality and if there are any bugs.

The site is: http://www.listentoronpaul.com/

I hope the domain name has propagated enough.

HEY! Keep your flash widget to yourself!

Works on Linux (PCLinuxOS2007) with Firefox and the default flash plugin.

One suggestion, I wouldn't make the video auto-play right at the start. Digg just got a bunch of users angry because they had an ad on their site that played audio without the user requesting it.

I would prefer a play button over the video like when a youtube video is embedded. Don't want to accidentally tick people off.

I put it on my myspace page and it works great so far.

Hi there,

Wow this is great well done!

The only thing I would say is it would be good if it had a small bar that slowly filled up so you know how much of the current video you are watching has to go until it finishes.

This is psychological important so that you know you only have to focus for 1more minute. most people have very short attention spans and will just turn it off, but if they knew it was nearing the end they will hear him out. :)
