XDA TV v1.3

Now you can have all the XDA TV videos wherever you go using this web application.



After that tweet from azrienoch this sunday I've started to work on a webapp version of the XDA TV application. It uses WebKit, so in theory Android, iOS, Windows Phone 7, modern desktop browsers, Symbian will handle it correct, if it doesn't please report me the problems/bugs with screenshots(if needed) and a good description.

I've tried to get the app in the App Store, but Apple rejected it

The technologies used on this application:


Running in my iPod:

Running in my iPad:

PS: If you're having problems with that page(which is a redirector that checks for the screen size to send you to the appropriated version, tablet or phone, you might use this other links for the tablet and the phone versions


Please fell free to donate and help me with the high server costs, which hosts the XDA TV videos for the XDA TV App streaming. Seriously, the server costs are getting pretty high:


Changelog:

v1.3:
* WebApp released!

It's darn slow to load the page. Can't run videos.

Expecting updates

It would be nice to have an app for each of the mobile platforms...

This will be great! Right now it doesn't work so good with ie9 wp7 mango. I can't scroll on first page. When I press on one link I only see back button and upper left corner of the movie frame (it's zoomed in I think and I can't scroll). If I press video it starts playing so that is working.

Thanks for sharing, hopefully you can fix it Best of luck!

I'm working on that, the WP7 browser (IE9) has a lot of incompatibilities with WebKit(as usual from Microsoft...)

Its not Microsofts fault.
Its yours.
The webapp only works in WebKit browsers.
It doesn't work very well in any other browser.
Not in Firefox, not in Opera, not in IE.
I have seen some errors in your CSS.
I haven't seen the JS yet.

Ok, WebKit browsers are dominating the mobile market, Android and iOS use them, and latest version of Firefox works with my code, Chrome does too, IE historically has a lot of problems and incompatibilities.

For me what I think is that you never tried to develop web apps for multiple browsers and felt into the nightmare of IE!

I imagine it is much the same as windows mobile...they set some standards and then change their mind and break it all.
