Bi-weekly Update (4)

October 26th, 2018 to November 9th, 2018

General Thoughts

This week was primarily focused on preparing for the beta release! The beta tasks, feedback form, and beta files were created and committed this week! Along with this, I changed the file formats that I'll accept with uploads, changed the fullscreen functions, completed the Opus Collections, and much more!

Issues

Issue 3:3 From Bi-Weekly Update (3): It was brought to my attention (by Robin uploading a MOV file; that not all video file formats are accepted. After going through and testing I was able to find that each browsers share a few similar extensions allowed for instance:

Thus I decided to only allow videos with rather a mp4 format or a m4v format.

1) I've been able to fix the automatic issue that I was having with the Collections. To fix the issue, I ended up by calling an index instead of video ID then looping that through a if loop then changing the URL to incrementally change the index number once a video is done through the JavaScript code.

Successes

Re-formatted the fullscreen function with a manual mode instead of the browser defaults!

Changed the video controls to a hover-able system and this allowing for bigger videos!

Created the beta tasks, feedback, and files; and committed them to GitHub!

I added the functioning Followers feed in which will now display videos that are uploaded from the Opus Creators that you follow!

Added a more informed Dashboard with Dashboard Stats and Dashboard Messages!

Added the initial implementation of a Watch Later list in which will allow users to watch videos at a later time!

I further updated the sitemap and removed the "Logged In" state from being viewable! In other words anyone can now view the sitemap!
