quick prototype and html5 video fun

So we're experimenting with new assessment methods, including ones that are tightly linked to certain time spots in educational videos. So to ask questions in videos, you need an editor, and this is a prototype I whipped up in a few's based on flowplayer, a great HTML5 and Flash video player. It has a decent API, and the documentation is decent, if a bit uneven (and Google kind of points to a lot of the older, Flash-oriented stuff.)

It was a fun little exercise in UI design; you can click a button, it sets a timestamp on the timeline, and you can enter questions, and then come back and edit the question for a specific time.

So nothing too exciting, just here to show off a few hours work and as reference to my future self.
