This video is made using the Youtube annotation system to create a fully functional DVD style menu.
- If you are on a desktop, click the menu buttons to navigate this video.
- If you are on a mobile device, annotations are not available to you. Fast Fwd. to the 5 min mark instead.
Due to the length of the video, I wanted to find a way to make the viewer's experience better. Specifically, I wanted the viewer to be able to navigate through the video quickly and with ease, while also being able to easily find the last place they left off if they decided to watch this video in segments.
Introduce the menu system. The menu you see in the beginning is interactive and you can click the INTRODUCTION title at the top to start the video from the beginning, or go straight to any player you want to...it's your choice. Also, while watching the video proper, if you mouse over the top left corner you can click to return to the main menu at any time. If you mouse over the top right corner, you can skip ahead to the next chapter...in case you get tired of listening to me go on and on about any particular player or tangent. These menu systems will allow viewers to watch as much or as little as they like and I hope it really enhances the experience.
This video took forever to make and then took forever and a day to upload with many upload failures. My PC was on for a solid 8 to 10 days uploading 24/7. It was a very frustrating and tedious experience but I think it was worth it as well

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being 'not at all' and 10 being 'essential', how would you rate the various menu systems as a whole?
