[kepler-dev] Kepler Training Videos - Loading Video

Although it's a small accomplishment, I've finished the "loading  
video" that is used when loading other larger videos or flash files.  
The use of a loading video helps give the viewer the sense that  
something is occurring immediately and that the process is not "hung."  
Ideally, this video is very small and starts immediately.

To view the loading video (without actually loading anything else),  
please see:


To show how this may help, I've taken a random video that is bulky  
from my archives (It is a television commercial; please forgive me if  
the content is offensive). This format is not ideal for streaming this  
commercial. I've added the loading video in this process so it's  
effect can be seen (at least in the time before the commercial begins  
to play). Obviously, no training video should be this bulky.

To see the loading video in a demonstration, please see:


I welcome any feedback for improvements for this first stage of  
development. Also, for the loading video to be effective, a static and  
permanent address needs to be allocated. The loading video is not  
embedded into other videos. Instead, a link that points to the loading  
video is given.

Warmest Regards,
