Hi guys
How's it going?
Is there a live test site anywhere that I can check? Or are we still a few weeks away from this stage?

Also if I can get some AWS video url links from the Cloud Academy guys would we be able to test alternative video platforms?

The latest build will be here: https://agile-chamber-1551.herokuapp.com/
Since it's on a free Heroku site with only one dyno the site goes to sleep after about an hour so it might take a few extra seconds to come up on the first time.
I push to the site at least once a night when I think I've come to a stopping point and I'll pull Arthur's changes into the repo and push to this site when he sends pull requests.

Right now, it's currently only working with the videos already in the database and Youtube. The "Save" shortcut keys only work to save it to the current object and don't send it to the db yet.
So that's what I'm working on for the next few days: checking for the video; if not in the db, scraping the youtube url for the ASR file and saving everything to the array; the ability to create new/delete captions and set new times for current ones.
You said that the Cloud Academy videos are just served as HTML5 video, right?

Also, I still have to work out some of the kinks with the caption boxes. Need to add checks if the cursor is already in the box, etc. so that it works smoothly.

Oh, and if you just want to see all the captions in the database you can use https://agile-chamber-1551.herokuapp.com/captions

Thanks Justin - it's looking good
I'm going to try and get my hands on one or two cloud academy videos so we can see what we're dealing with
Also I noticed the captions don't show up on the video player with the videos on our db
Is this coming shortly?
Cheers for now - you've made great progress
