proposed change to voice posting

proposed change to voice posting

Short, concise description of the idea
It would be really nice if the voice post auto-play button would have a slidebar so you could fast-forward, pause, resume and even perhaps a volume control.

Full description of the idea
Oftentimes us LJers might comment on an entry or navigate away from the page while a voice post is playing, requiring us to listen to the whole thing again from the beginning. this really sucks if you're listening to a 5+ minute voice post. There's no way you can restart it without having to download the MP3.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Allow users to start/restart/pause mp3 playback from their browser window
  • Allow users to pick up where they left off if they navigated away from the page playing the voice post
  • Allow users to adjust volume from the browser window

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • This is mainly an improvement for convenience
