Topic: Mobile Player and Flickr
It's me again… I've spent a weekend moving my old SV v1- and v2-based galleries to new SV-Pro installation, regexing old SV-1.x-based XML-configs to current format (old XML-configs work in Flash-based current version of SV, but they don't work in mobile-version) and recreating previews from old galleries (65px, now all are 75px), etc., etc. And now, proud of all this work, I just started to move new galleries to Flickr-based configs (because of server-space constrains). To my surprise I discovered, that Flickr support is yet another feature missing in the mobile player! :(
I'm rather disappointed, I must say, because marketing blurb on the Products and News pages do not say a word about how limited mobile player really is. It's a little premature to write: SimpleViewer now supports Universal Playback and can be viewed on Windows, Mac, Linux, iPhone, iPad and Android when most of crucial features are missing from the mobile player. I hope the Flickr-support is in the development, otherwise I'm stuck. Please, advise!
Another feedback info: Flickr parameters regarding font size. It seems that flickrTitleFontSize is an equivalent to traditonal captionFontSize (it displays title and/or caption from Flickr-image). But flickrTitleFontSize has a different default value (22) than captionFontSize (14) and that causes the players (both mobile and Flash-based) to behave differently. When I set flickrTitleFontSize="14" in the XML-config then it fixes the Flash-based player – caption has the same size, regardless pictures are hosted on Flickr or on my server. But mobile player still displays different font size in Flickr-mode than in normal-mode. See the screenshots (flickrTitleFontSize set to 14):
