  • Flash HD Video Players’ Common Mistake

    Posted on March 27th, 2009 Cahit Crcioglu 2 comments

    People are using flash’s fullscreen ability in the wrong way; they are not using the advantage of hardware-acceleration enough.

    I have made a flash player (not-hd supported) in 2005 from scratch. It wasn’t using any flash component related to video playback. So it was’t using skins. Starting from those days, nothing really much changed when opening video in fullscreen.

    After sometime, adobe gave us a big update which lets us use h264 codec in flash. Internet connections got faster and faster, h264 hardware acceleration was started to be used in graphics cards and in many different kinds of devices.

    However  we see many blog posts, articles, tutorials about “how to go into fullscreen” or “true fullscreen mode in flash” or smiliar topics..

    Nearly all of them says we have to use the following:

    function toggleFullScreen(){
        if(Stage["displayState"]=="normal"){
            Stage["displayState"]="fullScreen";
        } else{
            Stage["displayState"]="normal";
        }
    }
    // OR "stage.displayState = StageDisplayState.FULL_SCREEN;"
    // according to the version you use

    Ok. This is not wrong. Infact, you have to do it. But this is not the right way to do it, i was possibly one of the first ones who asked this to adobe, i got no answer and interestingly nobody said anything about my question. ( it was open to public ) After sometime, i saw that that is what it should be. Now i’ll tell you what i’m talking about:

    Cicibebe iPhone App - 1 My first Music Artist Application is coming for the Turkish Music Group “Cicibebe”.


    Application includes standard features like other applications on App Store but in a different visual style. I didn’t want to stuck in the standard interface meanwhile not breaking usability and keeping an eye on the recommended way to get user attention and not trying to change user habbits on iPhone application usage.

    Shared features with other artist applications on App Store:

    Posted on March 26th, 2009 Cahit Crcioglu No comments

    Two weeks ago, i was in the set of Cicibebe’s first music clip for the song “GIDI GIDI”.

    “Cicibebe” is an extraordinary music group in Turkiye. Their songs generally can not be compared with any other songs. However their songs arei n Turkish, melody would attract anyone from any country.

    They are getting their first album ready fully in the following months. We may see their clip soon in well-known tv channels  (:

    While i was in the set, i took approximately 800 photos without interrupting the video shoot.

    Here i want to share some of them:
