  1. Use standard meta tags to improve sharing on sites like Facebook

    When sharing a vialogue link on Facebook, no thumbnail or video meta data (title, duration, the fact that it is a video) appears. This is unfortunate because many people do not know that a vialogue link is a video and without the thumbnail, it is easy to overlook the post. I think this is a lost opportunity for those trying to share vialogues and for the platform as a whole. You can read about Facebook meta tags here:

    http://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraphprotocol/

    There may be other meta tags for other sharing sites, but I am not familiar with them.

  2. How about being able to create audio comments

    I like that it's easy to create a URL link without having to code. I wanted to add an audio comment, so I called my WordPress site and created an Audio Post. I then copied that URL and easily pasted it in the comment field in my Vialogue. Worked fine!

  3. Prezi and Jing Presentations?

    I use Jing sometimes to create short training videos, screen captures of some on screen activity as I make audio commentary. Snagit will be the tool used after the end of the year. Some of these videos are pushed up to Screencast.com. Maybe be able to pull from this site like YouTube?

    Not sure of all the technical issues of treating a Prezi presentation as a video, but if it would work, would be nice... may have timing issues since a Prezi can be paused or manually walked through instead of like a video.

  4. Bookmarklets

    I would find a vialogue bookmarklet very handy as a way to make smoother workflow within the browser. I think the best bookmarklet I have seen is the one for Diigo.

  5. Videos under processing should not show up in Recent Vialogues

    On the logged in homepage, videos which are being processed should probably not show up in Recent Vialogues until they are available for view. If theres a reason behind why you are currently showing them, then probably giving a little more information to the user might help ; For e.g. This video is currently being processed but would be available to view under 5 minutes. (And then the page should refresh using ajax) to show that the new vialogue is ready)

  6. Change language of "This Vialogue has been closed from further discussion."

    i think this sentence is grammatically incorrect.

    Here is an alternative:

    Discussion has been disabled for this vialogue. Start a new one at vialogues.com

  7. Change language for "Close Vialogue"

    Close Vialogue makes me think i am leaving the page. If you are closing the vialogue to additional comments, why not "Disable Comments" or "Turn off Comments"

  8. make the video available for others later

    I uploaded videos but unchecked "Let others create Vialogues for this video" while I was uploading, thinking this would keep the video private from being searched. But now that I would like to open up the video. How do I do that?

  9. Video stills

    https://vialogues.com/vialogues/play/2806

    Pranav asked that I submit an example of how the aspect ratio for a video that we upload is squished when a still is made.

    For youtube videos, there are no constrained proportions but for our videos, which are shot and edited in 16:9, they are squashed when converted to a 4:3 still. So, essentially every video that we upload is represented by the wrong aspect ratio in the still.

    Thanks!

  10. Change the email notification system

    When different people comment on a vialogue you've created/managed (i'm not sure which), you receive a separate email notification for each person who comments. Is there any way to combine all those email notifications into one "conversation," so that your box isn't filled by a lot of notifications for the same vialogue?

  11. We could make "Go to Vialogue" a bit more prominent

    This is currently listed in a small font size in blue towards the bottom of the page once you have created a vialogue.

  12. Username is uninformative & unprofessional in a discussion

    Currently, we are using usernames for identifying people in a discussion. These usernames are uninformative since people create usernames out of old school messenger ids. It also makes the discussion look unprofessional. I think that we should use Full Name (First Name, Last Name) to be displayed in the discussion, instead of the username.

  13. A reminder should pop up, asking to save changes

    The save button is quite small for saving changes to the participants and/or moderators. A reminder should pop up, asking "Would you like to save changes to the Vialogue?" when navigating away from the page.

  14. Can we hyperlink the video titles?

    In the right-hand column of videos there is an option to click on the vialogues and the "create new" but not the video title? This is a bit confusing? Perhaps make all three clickable?

  15. Home page press/users

    Can we add PBS press etc. (once it is final to the main page?) or "these users (show avatars) are Vialoguing" somewhere on the main page? This could generate excitement & energy!

    there should be an expand all button to show all the replies to all the comments so that one doesn't need to click more>> for each comment. example - https://vialogues.com/vialogues/play/615

  18. z-axis for vialogues

    I like layering the comments over the video, with half the text pushing into the video space. It works nicely most of the time but ocassionally (at least on Chrome), this breaks and the comments are behind the video and so no legible.

    Working: http://dev-critter.tc.columbia.edu/vialogues/overlapped_working.png

    Broken: http://dev-critter.tc.columbia.edu/vialogues/overlapped_broken.png

    Can we make this more consistent?

    We should have the option to pause the video while typing.

  20. Scrolling window should be separate from the main browser window.

    It seems like there's no way to scroll the comments without scrolling the viewing window with it. This is a little disorienting. I also noticed some of the links on the bottom left of the page disappear behind the comment box when I scroll all the way down. It might be easier to follow the comments along the video if they could be scrolled independent from the video itself.
