Pascal Vuylsteker argue that Flash isn't the only king of video and talks about the shortcomings.

  • Clean fast forward
  • Fast rewind
  • Jog Shuttle
  • Frame by frame step forward and backward
  • Direct access to any frame
  • Precise information about the currently displayed frame
  • Precise information about the amount of already downloaded data (in progressive download)
  • Selection control (constraint the navigation within the video)
  • Can read any format
  • Encrypted cache, no easy way to pirate the video, even in progressive download

In conclusion, …QuickTime is much better than Flash. And to avoid just talking about it here is a snapshot of a demo based only on the Apple Quicktime plugin and Javascript, with the help of Prototype and Scriptaculous (and a link to the live version).

And the question: can anybody propose the same sort of interaction that what can be done with Quicktime + Javascript ?
