    v10 v11  
    77To progress the Burnstation prototype into a full production system, the following developmental areas must be addressed: 
    88 
     9==== User Interface Functions ==== 
     10 * Provide a dedicated page, rather than a portlet, for managing the contents of a disk image (but still keep the portlet as a summary & easy way to launch the page) 
     11 * Need to be able to remove individual items from an existing queue, rather than having to clear the whole queue 
     12 * Use AJAX within the Burnstation portlet so it automatically refreshes when the ISO file is ready to download and when the queue is cleared 
     13 * Provide realtime ISO creation progress so the user can see how long is required for its completion. 
     14 * Provide confirmation messages for the user after each action (such as adding a video to the queue, etc) - don't just reset back to the home page 
     15 
     16==== DVD formatting ==== 
     17 * Must provide more control over the generated dvd, including: 
     18  * Setting titles for each video 
     19  * Creating thumbnails for each video on the menu 
     20  * Tailoring the menu (layout, etc) 
     21  * Including chapters for each video so people can chapter-search through them 
     22  * Provide a "play all" option in the menu 
     23  * Work correctly in VLC on a computer (eg: display menu until a selection is made, chapter search between videos, etc) 
     24 * Check all video titles for error conditions (length, unusual characters, etc) prior to starting the ISO creation 
     25 
    926==== Administration System ==== 
    10  * Create an admin system for managing queues and settings 
     27 * Create an administration component for Burnstation that allows admin users to manage queues and settings 
    1128 
    12 === Complete Manual === 
     29==== Complete Manual ==== 
    1330 * Progress the current bare-minimum user manual to a full Plumi style manual (user, admin and geek side) 
    1431 
    15 === User Interface Functions === 
    16  * Ability to remove individual items, rather than having to clear the whole queue 
    17  * A dedicated page, rather than a portlet, for managing your disk. 
    18  * Ajaxification of the burnstation portlet. It should automatically refresh when the iso is ready and when the queue is cleared 
    19  * Realtime ISO creation progress indication. 
    20  * Confirmation messages for the user after each action (don't just reset back to the home page) 
    21  
    22 === DVD formatting === 
    23  * More control over the generated dvd (titles, thumbnails, menu, chapters, play all, work in VLC on a computer, etc) 
    24  * Check video titles for error conditions (length, unusual characters, etc) 
    25  
    26 == Design == 
     32=== Design === 
    2733 
    2834Additionally, the following design issues must be addressed: 
    2935 
    30 === Supporting VCDs === 
     36==== Supporting VCDs ==== 
    3137 * Is there still a need to produce a disk image formatted to play in VCD systems? Are there any left or have DVDs sufficient market penetration throughout Indonesia & Asia (the primary target for disk distribution) so we can ignore VCDs? 
    3238 
    33 === Space Requirements === 
     39==== Space Requirements ==== 
    3440 * The prototype system's transcoder will create an mpeg2 format file for every video added to the system. For a large production video CMS this could consume large amounts of space for videos that may never get selected for burning to a disk. Should this be an option when transcoding files (eg: only create mpeg2 files for nominated videos) or should the files be created as a video is selected for burning with the acknowledgement that this will slow down creation of the ISO file).
