Pushed (Video)

    It bugs me a bit when the controls cover a video. So in this example when you hover, the video gets pushed back to make room for the controls. Not sure if that's better.

    See the attached video.

    I dig this.

    BTW, you could've tried some folds...

    Love it. It doesn't usually bug me about the controls overlaying the video (if done tastefully), but this is good fun. It'd definitely work if flipping / rotating elements were already part of the design.

    @Haziq Mir Folds? Yeah.. But that's kinda hard to do without duplicating the video. At least on the web. Not sure about native.

    Neat execution, but surely distorting the video is worse than the controls covering the video?

    Really interesting idea, and I like the way you have presented it, but I think that transforming the video makes for a worse user experience. I quite like the players that have the control bar below the video; that way you aren't impacting on the video at all.

    @Derek Mack Well, you have to make a tradeoff somewhere. ;-) I think I prefer a distorted video more than a covered video. It's only while you use the controls and then you're not really watching, just scrubbing or so.

    @Joshua Hibbert You mean the controls below the video visible all the time? Yeah, depends a bit on the use case, but I like to hide the controls as much as possible for a more distraction free watching.

    Maybe the controls could slide down, but that might also not be possible in every situation.

    @simurai Yeah, that's what I'm talking about; although sliding down is another option. I think that having the controls slide down would be less visually distracting than transforming the video.

    Either way, this is neat :)

    As an aside, have you thought about this approach? http://codepen.io/joshnh/pen/hlmCg

    @Joshua Hibbert Yeah, I can see the transforming getting annoying when embedded on a page and you often scroll over it.

    Anyways.. I'll leave it in the "unfinished" bucket for now.

    Looks pretty cool! Maybe you should combine it with this. The controls would be easier to use if they appear as close to your pointer as possible.

    I like it more than controls covering the video. Especially when the video is not in full-screen mode. In full screen, I think the normal covering behavior would be preferable.

    I like this idea, I think its lovely.

  14. Ok, here the opposite: "Cover the video as much as possible". ;-)

    It might could be a little more transparent, but then it just makes the controls visually too busy. Also, the controls would only appear when you tab the video and auto-hide, so maybe ok.

    Looks like we've been using the same video when designing our players.
