I would like video off to the side and upper right or left

1 comment

and perhaps full view when sitting or laying down.

Not a definitive answer but from the developer resources they made available:

"- No fullscreen playback of videos"

So I think this won't be possible. I remember them saying something about other devices dedicated to watch video on Facebook when they answered a similar question but I couldn't find it.

Anyway, the display's specs don't seem to provide a screen you would watch a movie or youtube on...

    Google Maps and Waze are quite good at vehicle navigation but my experience is they are difficult to use when walking. I'd like to get feedback on a mod that shows simple navigation arrows, distances to waypoints & landmarks, points of interest, and similar meta data in a format that makes sense while walking wearing the Shima glasses. The user would start the navigation app of their choice on their mobile device and the Walkabout companion app would redirect and reformat the navigation information for the Shima glasses display. Thoughts/feedback?

    What is the license that LAFORGE is attaching to the Mod simulator? The code is basically available via glitch at the moment, but I didn't see any indications on what license the code follows. (I'm looking to fix some issues, but I don't know if I'm able to share my results until I know the licensing.)

    I wanted to see if it was possible to clarify "The Rules" (https://www.socialflo.com/rules-standards) we've been given for mods. In my opinion, it's confusing to see rules like "No web browsers" and "No eReaders, PDF viewers, Spreadsheets, or similar", while also having the first example on the same page discuss how to "steal" an idea from a web page and make it more directly visible. I can certainly understand if LAFORGE doesn't want users to have their field of vision replaced with full screens of any kind, but I'm not understanding the rules as they are written. A few hypothetical examples of why I'm confused: - I create a Mod that displays an entire text file two lines at a time. Is this "an eReader" and therefore forbidden, or have I just "stolen" the ability to digest the text in its simplest form as the website praises? - I create a Mod that shows in real-time the title of the current web page being browsed on my phone. Is that a "web browser" or "mirroring" and against the rules? - I create a Mod that shows videos in only one pane, and at only half-size. The Rules only state "no fullscreen playback of videos", so is this Mod valid or not? These are just a few ideas off the top of my head that suggest further clarification of what Mods are really supposed to be. Could someone chime in with a better summary of what LAFORGE is looking for? Thanks!
