better video player

FlopnthenutzFlopnthenutz Red Chipper Posts: 7 ✭✭
I would like to see these two features on the video player.
1. Some way to tell if I already viewed a video.
2. Some type of recall so if I get interrupted watching a video and I have to watch later it remembers where I was in the video. Similar to how podcasts work on the iphone.
Thanks!

    I'd also like to see "bookmarks" on videos that analyze multiple hands. So I can fast forward to the next hand.

    Would also be great if powerpoints were banned from now on! :-)

    1. That would be an awesome feature. It's a little out of our skillset ATM, but certainly a feature I'd like to see as well
    2. Agreed

    @kagey some of the powerpoint videos are the most info-packed...I wouldn't trade those for anything =)

    The powerpoint videos are the best!

    It's not the CONTENT of the powerpoint vids that I abhor, it more how a presenter sits on the same slide for 5 minutes. Literally. And basically reads the slide to me.

    IMO, the majority of the RCP powerpoint videos could easily be converted into podcasts and nothing would be lost.

    As a professional marketer and filmmaker - I can tell you that the most effective way to help an audience retain information in a video format is by using visuals. More information is retained when the visuals complement or expand upon the voice-over's point. Especially moving visuals. Otherwise, commercials would just be a product shot with a voice over. Right?



    No doubt - RCP videos are jam-packed with great info (like Andrew's latest vid - amazing content!!) - but they often play as company meeting as opposed to an instructional video. I just think it would be nice to have more production values put into the vids. :-)

    What we are running into is that there are three skills needed to make a full animated and visual poker video:

    * Poker Skill
    * Teaching Skill
    * Video animation Skill

    These are very hard to fill in one person. Coaches that show an interest in developing the third skill have access to James and I for learning that. Some have done that, some are doing that.

    Instructional video making is a skill that does get developed over time. In my past life, I made instructional video for engineering. I got a ton better over time and those skills were relatively refined over the course of 200+ engineering videos.

    We are pretty happy to start people on a clean PowerPoint presentation and then open the door to even more visual presentations.

    Also, we have heard that the *less* visual videos are ideal for long drive when they are exactly treated as podcasts.

    There is a place for all styles, and it is better as coaches are learning to do all the styles and choose the one that best fits their material.
