Floe Video Player Wordpress Plugin UI exploration

Hi everyone,

I am helping out with the design of the Floe Video Player Plugin for
Wordpress. The plugin allows a Wordpress user the ability to embed a Floe
player into their content, and specify transcripts and captions for that
video content. This design exploration centres around the web form that the
user will complete to add a Floe player to their blog post.

I have listed the major pieces of functionality on this wiki page:

Thinking through this, I have some questions:

1. Is any other metadata information required? i.e. author, description /
summary, primary language, etc?
2. Are any of the fields mandatory? I assume the Video URL and format are
the only required fields?
3. How common is the Amara use case for either Transcript or Captions?
4. Can JSONcc or VTT resources be loaded from an URL?
5. Can the type of caption / transcript be detected given an URL?
6. Can an Amara transcript or Amara caption be uploaded locally or must it
always be specified with an URL?


- Jonathan.
