Snowvision: Ajax meets Snowboards

Category: Rails, Showcase

Snowvision is the second site created by Diversion Media (who created Travelistic).

Snowvision features a drag and drop playlist integrated with fullscreen flash player, dynamic resort picker and an Ajax driven upload process.

It was written using Prototype and Script.aculo.us on Ruby on Rails.

Good work so far. There is some horizontal scrolling for some css reason and the drag and drop disapear behind the flash movie (confused me for a second, I think an iframe-div technique would fix that,in IE, z-index for EOMB), I like http://www.hedgerwow.com/360/bugs/css-select-free.html technique.

The Flash problem can be fixed by setting the background to opaque. Flash by default overlaps all HTML but by setting the background to opaque it allows draggable objects and drop down menus to appear on top of it.

nice work! Besides, the blue color theme is nice.

Very nice work,

But the thing that really caught my eye was how quickly such good quality video clips were loaded, even full screen.
