Re: Silverlight scripting and netflix possible

Hi,

2 quick questions, I believe the sky tv website uses silverlight for
watching content on their web site (or at least it did last time I tried to
watch something which was a while ago), would this new script also work for
that or would it be specific to Netflix? Secondly does anyone know if
Netflix does audio description with its movies?

Big thanks to you for putting in the time to put together this script by the
way, its much appreciated

This would be very much welcomed. Perhaps in addition to the standard fast
forward and rewind commands, separate commands could be included for
increased fast forward and rewind? Like ctl+left arrow or right arrow
quickly or ctl+shift+left or right arrow? That or some sort of jump thirty
second or one minute command since you're talking about titles that can run
quite long. It may be a more efficient means of getting through large chunks
of video?

OK, I have had a look at the code and indeed it is possible to script for a
Netflix player to respond to controls. In Silverlight land, it is possible
to make Silverlight the browser plugin work for applications as well. I
don't know how long it would take, but the Netflix interface seems pretty
straight forward, so I'll start out with Netflix first and then expand.
Anyone else want to use the Silverlight for something other than Netflix?

I have always wanted to control Netflix videos so I will build in the
following controls:

Play / Pause with the spacebar

Rewind and fast forward with control left and right arrows

Volume up and down with control up and down arrows

Stop playback with shift + space

Speak the currently playing movie and whatever information that it can
offer. I would probably put this information into the virtual viewer. It
might include actors, date released and more, I don't know how much
information is released to the page or the Silverlight player.

The time information IE current position and end times

I don't think subtitles will be possible but you never know. Speaking that
kind of information might be difficult or not possible.

If you want some more controls, let me know and I'll program it in.

This is going to start off simple with Silverlight. Eventually I will build
in support for Silverlight applications. That is going to take some time
though because I have to learn the language then translate this to jaws
script. There isn't going to be a beta for the Netflix thing because this is
so straight forward. The great part is you can choose what browser you want
to use.

Does this sound like something we would all be interested in?

Cheers,

John Martyn
