Last week we released an update to the Member Roster page. While on the surface it looks similar, we have made lots of small improvements under the hood and a completely new media player that we’d love to tell you about!
The media player now launches at the bottom of the page so you can continue using it when viewing the current service or browsing other services.
Whilst we previously had some video integration with the player, it was limited in what it could play. Exciting to us (and hopefully to you too), we have added YouTube and Vimeo integration into the player and these will play in the playlist alongside your other audio and video files.
Video is too small? Click ‘Expand’ and voila, nice and big for your viewing/learning/listening pleasure! Or, click ‘minimize’ to tuck the media player completely to hide it but keep playing!
We’ve also taken great care in improving the ease of access to song charts & lyrics. We now include all relevant files, whether attached to the song, arrangement or key, in both the service plan and the songs box. This also now includes the generated number/roman numeral charts.
We are working on improving the integration of swap and replace in both the member area and in the upcoming version 2 of the mobile app. This will make creating, and responding to, swaps and replaces easier than ever.
The mobile app version 2 will also include a brand new media player supporting playlists and background controls from your device.
For all those ‘techies’ or if you just like to read the fine-print, our releases website has had facelift. And if you’re really ‘bleeding edge’ it now offers the page feed in the new (and hugely popular) JSON Feed format!
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do, we’d love to hear your feedback!
