Classic player vs modern player
Just wanted to get peoples thoughts on something.
I've been designing courses using the modern player since it was released, however I've noticed a few random bugs that don't happen with the classic player. These include white lines appearing at the sides, top or bottom of the player, text boxes moving slightly when hovering over shapes, and other weird little bugs. We've found workarounds for most of these, but it involves a lot of additional work that isn't needed when using the classic player.
We don't use any of the player features, as we create our own custom playbar, buttons, menus, etc, so the only benefit that I can see of using the modern player is the much nicer looking resume prompt. However, that's probably outweighed by the numerous bugs that the modern player causes.
Can anyone think of any other benefits of using the modern player over the classic player? The classic player has the option of resizing the window to fit the user's browser, so in terms of responsiveness, there doesn't seem to be any benefits there.
If we were using the features of the player it would probably be worth the extra work to resolve the bugs, as the modern player definitely looks much nicer than the classic player, but as I mentioned above, all of our features are custom built. It's possible I'm not aware of some other benefits of using the modern player though, so thought I'd see what other people think.
