Video resizing

Since adding the ability to show embedded videos we’ve recognized that the default size is very small, rather than make it larger by default we’ve also had a link which would quickly take you to a new window where you could view the video in larger format.

If you’ve wished that the embedded videos were larger, wish no more.  You can now make them as large or small as you like.

After opening the Videos section while viewing a dance

Just grab either the right edge, bottom edge or bottom-right corner and drag until the video is the size you want

DOTW: Ballingeary Jig Set

The Dance Of The Week for this week is the Ballingeary Jig set, a very, very lively set that’s danced fast with plenty of battering.  Click through for notes as well as links to video taken at the 2008 North American Comhaltas convention.

DOTW: The Duke Reel

The Dance Of The Week for this week is the Duke Reel, a fun intermediate ceili dance for three couples in a ring formation (really, kind of a pyramid).  It’s danced for fun and in competition so you have the option to dance it low and slow or kick up high and fast!
