Popcorn.js 1.0, mozfest, Popcorn.js Universal Subtitles parser
This weekend has been a blast.
Yesterday Toronto time we released Popcorn.js 1.0 in London time.. or yesterday, I’m not sure, but anyway, it was super cool. We released with new docs made by David Seifried, a Mozilla based website for what Mozilla is doing with Popcorn, and a shiny new build tool, built by Chris De Cairos.
I’ve been spending the weekend in London at the Mozilla Festival. Been getting way more Popcorn attention than I expected or imagined! Been interesting hearing impressions and educating people on Popcorn.
I also spent some time at the festival hacking up a Popcorn.js Universal Subtitles parser, and demo. I have one work in here before. Back in 0.1 I did a internal parser for Universal Subtitles, and for a beta version of Popcorn-Maker, I implemented a parser for Universal Subtitles as well. This one though, should be the final, as it’s not longer living inside something, but lives on it’s own in modular space. I also decided to take some time to make it look nice with Brian Chirls’ pop plugin! Check it out!
