Video and photos from a steam train making a journey on the Mid Hants Railway, Watercress Line, starting at Alresford — shot on 9th January 2011.
The result has been my day’s work today. It’s a two part tutorial, showing you how to first set up a simple three-tabbed static web page with Ajax support, and then moving on into part two to show you how to configure fallback support (something that I never touched on previously).
More info about this tutorial, including the source files for this demo project, and a link to a live working completed version, is available on my documentation wiki.
I am aware that the audio quality is far from good – there is quite bad noise on the audio track and some obvious audio transitions that I really could have done better. However, I still think it’s a good resource for explaining SleekTabs and I’d love to hear any further feedback on either this or the program itself.
UPDATE: This still is fine for 2.0.0.x, but UnPlug does not run properly on Firefox 3 and later, so if you’re on 3.0, this unfortunately will not work.
Firefox extension UnPlug is a very useful tool for extracting embedded video from all sorts of websites.
It can be a bit alien to work out how to use at first though, so I’ve put together a quick video of just over a minute that walks you through the process. It assumes you’ve already got UnPlug installed and loaded into Firefox.
