Rainbow  yarc version 0.6.0 is aviable!
Post: #46
Hi all,

i updated yarc. a big update:
now it's possible to navigate with the deviceOrientation event. It's still quite Beta and I need your opinion!

there is no desciption yet. Maybe in the next release there will be a demo video.

how to use it:
- you need a device which supports it (modern mobile phones should do it)
- on the first page there is now a switch where you can activate it. if there is no switch, your browser does not support it, so there is no sense to even show it
- how to navigate:
- if you are in the "navigation section":
- hold your phone normally in portrait view (not landscape!), as you use it normally
- if you go with the upper edge down, until it's lower than on a table, it goes down
- if you go with the upper edge in your direction until its more than straigt up, it goes up
- if you lean your upper edge to the right, it goes right
- accordingly with left
- if are in "player" mode, you can jump to the next or prev. playlist item with the right or left move
- if your phone is facing with screen down the a flat surface, it pauses
- if you take your mobile normaly in the hands again, it continues playing

Be aware, it's a battery killer, so switch the service off if you don't need it! you need to try it out a bit i guess. sorry.

i tested it with a nexus4, android5 and firefox, maxthon and chrome, also with iphone4+5 (i think). in iphone, the play/pause function is not working.

i would really apreciate feedback! pls also tell me which device, operating system and browser you use.

here the changelog:
Version 0.6.0
- Device Orientation Navigation: navigate through changing the oriantation of your device
* works with mobiles/tablets and it's browsers who support the deviceOriantion API
* Navigate up down left right and also go to next or previous songs
* if you lay your device facing down on the table it pauses, take it in you hands again to play
- send now all Youtube Vidos to Video Playlist instead of music playlist
- Say it if in searches (addons, movies, music) no items are found
- remove season in tv Series, if thre are no items to show and write information
- replaced star-rating function: now it only displays one star with rating
- some cleaning up / optimise java script code
- Footer Bar: toggle button now bigger and slightly transparent when footer not visible
- don't show preview images im popup backgrounds, for TV-Show-Titles, footer and youtube items
- in some browsers (mostly non-mobile) the playlist can be sortet with drag-and-drop

Check out my plugin yarc, it's a web-remote optimised for mobile (touch and small screen) devices and has support for Device Orientation (rotate your device to navigate).

Rainbow  yarc for mobile: NEW Version 0.7.0
Post: #47
There is an Update aviable. I hope you like the new fanart, and i hope it looks a bit more professional than the last one.

I want to point out the new functionality of seeking media playing possitions:
if footer is out, simpli click on it and a "seek-bubble" apears. if you move it to left or right, you can jump to certain positions. While moving, it shows to which point in the playing media it will jump, and how much time it is away from the point you are (when starting moving the bubble).

The new Version can be downloaded here.

here is the changelog:

Version 0.7.0
- add a seek playing file position functionality: while Footer bar open, press on it and a seek media bubble appears
- while the seek-bubble is moved, it prints out where it would jumpt to, and the time difference to current position (at time of start moving bubble)
- add progress bar in footerbackground for better progress visability from distance
- album popup now adds now songs in the same way as youtube popup
- search song textfield runs now also with pressing enter
- added jqueryUI (only sortable and dragable)
- replaced Sortable Plugin with functions from jqueryUI, since i need jqueryUI anyway
- text and buttons within swipe field should not be selected anymore on long pressing in upper part
- some html cleanup
- new logo, icon and fanart

Check out my plugin yarc, it's a web-remote optimised for mobile (touch and small screen) devices and has support for Device Orientation (rotate your device to navigate).
