    Very Clean and professional site you have there! One thing that you could look into adding as a control for the videos (e.g. play/pause and time slider bar) as what you are showing is the kind of thing that people will want to take a look at again and with long clips it could get annoying with no controls.

    I totally understand why you have removed them as they do have a tendancy to ruin the asthetics of a well designed site like yours, In my experience of flash and if memory serves; you can create your own buttons/layout for the video controls or even have them slide into view when the cursor is hovered on the video, and this would keep the clean look you have achieved.

    Other than the lack of controls I found the site very appealing though the oddly placed menus can be troublesome, but on an arty site like yours people tend to expect this.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the feedback.

    A slider control with play/pause/volume should appear when you hover the mouse over the bottom of each video.

    Can someone else please confirm it works?

    Cheers!

    Apologies Slowprogress, the bar does appear when you move the cursor to the base of each video but not in the middle (where I usually hover my cursor)

    Much happier now :)

    Yeah you're right, I would also like the bar to appear when hovering the mouse over any part of the video. I'm sure you're not the only one who had this problem.

    Any other comments or criticisms everyone?

    Cheers

  • First thing I noticed is you've mis-spelled 'demonstration' on the front page.
