Yep, so we need to add an additional check on the videos. If the videos's not already in the db, doesn't have a proper caption, and doesn't have an ASR, then it will save and start a blank caption track.
In the proof of prototype I believe I was able to download a modified CC file without logging in. Are we sure we want to create friction on that ease of use? I can see some of the benefits of demanding logins, as you mentioned interacting with APIs
So tell me if I have this straight: the goal is for the user who corrects the captions to not actually send those out officially to modify the video in question, but link via social media to their modified CC for the benefit of everyone?
I think the best thing would be to divide it into phases, regardless of the ultimate goals. If one of you is working on the site and another on the extension, it’s going to take you over twice as long to deliver a usable product
Totally. I have seen so much back and forth and it’s clear everyone is on a course. I want to make sure that the path we are charting means we are all on the same page, and we’re striving for minimum viable products to deliver on a regular basis
A very large part of the integrity of our program is that no money is exchanging hands, but if you’d prefer to hire developers, I could see you splitting the project into a part that covers the basic idea through FCC
We’re working with a jewish family food bank that delivers food to families below the poverty line
Ultimately they want a whole custom CRM to keep inventory on the food donations they have, the families they deliver to, the drivers they have volunteering, etc.
But we found out that these families were applying for the program by downloading a modifiable pdf, filling it out, and returning it
Immediately we knew we could improve this process by utilizing forms, and writing custom forms so the information will be automatically fed into the db and saved for later
So we started by just replacing 1 application form. That was week 1
They got a workable form completed, so we decided for week 2 to do the same for Donor applicants and Driver applicants. They got that done in week 2
Even though ultimately this will all be very intertwined with their inventory management system and CRM, it begins with a simple fix that is deliverable
So I’d like to find what those steps are with nomorecraptions and give you the opportunity to focus in on a chunk at a time, so as not to become overwhelmed with visions and aspirations for the ultimate product
It should be up again now. Like I said, I haven't added all the proper error handling for videos that don't already have an ASR or isn't already in the db so it really didn't appreciate just any youtube url. :)
