Very close! Here’s a video

March 9, 2013

Delays, delays, delays…

Well, I’m pretty close now.  I just need to wire up the filesystem/database changes to the rest of the views and fix the icons and I’m done.  Currently, the database updating/filesystem checking all works perfectly fine.  It currently just updates the main page so if you have visited any series pages, it won’t update those already opened without a restart.  Not a problem, like I said, I just need to add the logic in to add/remove visual icons for episodes/seasons inside the series views.

It works so smoothly now that I thought I would upload an actual video of it running on my slate.



*EDIT* Just some explanations for what you see in the video:
1. The main page shows your seasons below the series poster, so you can take a direct shortcut to that season.
2. Pinch to see everything small with first letter headings for quick indexing… kind of like the way the people app is organized.
3. The individual series view page shows all the seasons you have, but only the 3 latest videos for each season. Trying to show everything just slows everything down because virtualization is a little wonky when you’re doing grouping.
4. Click on the season picture (or header) and get all of your episodes for that season.
5. Swipe the app bar inside a series to get the Episode Guide. This shows EVERYTHING using the same organizational layout as what you currently have in your library. Again, drawing every single episode from every season together on the same screen makes it SLOW due to grouping and virtualization issues.

Let’s leave the rest until I finish.

Anyhow, going to Disney tomorrow with my wife and kids so the weekend is shot…BUT this coming week is spring break so I don’t have to teach.  Coding, coding, coding.
