What do you think about new video icons on the front page https://lyricstranslate.com? They became interactive, you can watch a video directly on the page.

Suggestions are welcome.

I like them, would have liked to have seen them in red though. Or have the option to change the icon.

They're nice, but I kind of preferred the old ones--the new one is a bit plain.

I second Elen's opinion, red would fit better. When you use the Dark Theme, the icons are unfortunately barely noticeable.

For me they're fine, but let me take the opportunity to ask if it's possible to extend these to our translation pages - never understood why we have a gray 'play' button that doesn't seem to have any function.

These ones (in yellow): https://imgur.com/a/tNvYbhQ

However, it would (and could) make loading that page slower...

Oh, just FYI the icon is blue on Internet Explorer (It's orange on Google Chrome). Is it different colors on different browsers?

I think the icons look different in different places because they're not images, they're emojis.
By the way, if you have the chat activated and start the player, then minimize it so it stays on the bottom-right, then it is no longer accessible because the chat widget is over it.

I use Opera and the icon is grey, so it kind of blends into the site background.

FYI, looks better on Chrome, both interfaces, for my mobile.

This is what the button looks like on different platforms/devices: https://emojipedia.org/play-button/

EDIT: I guess they changed the icons to actual images? https://imgur.com/fweOTgt
Only the Trending Now are still orange: https://imgur.com/Jy7S2HG

It was a mistake to use emoji. Now the play icon is a picture, so it looks the same for everyone.

The video will be attached to the top of the screen if the chat window is active.

Additional functionality is loaded only after clicking on the icon. Therefore, we can expand the functionality to the entire site (including profile pages) without any consequences for the speed of loading pages.

Thank you all for your feedback!

I love the new video icon. But I have a question:

When you log in, the icon for video, annotations, and font size appear in the lyrics/translation; but when you log out, the video icon disappears. I can understand that the annotation icon is obviously for registered users, but: Is the video icon also for registered users or is it a temporary bug?

Yes, it is for registered users only. The reason is in the advertisement. According to the rules of Google Adsense, nothing should cover ads. For the same reason, the main drop-down menu is not available for non-logged-in users.

There are no ads on the front page, user profile pages, and search pages. Therefore, it is possible to make the video icon active on these pages.

On Internet Explorer the image for the video overlaps with the image that indicates a translation has a source. See:

It does the same thing on Opera, I can't speak for other browsers.

Same with Chrome, Brave and Firefox:

EDIT: If you use the play button and make some annotations on the lyrics, you can't use the space key because the video pauses and plays and it's impossible to separate what is written in the annotations.

Another bug:

On any artist's main page, when you press the play button, instead of playing the video it takes you directly to the lyrics.

We can't reproduce it. Could you give an example?

I can confirm, if useful, that you go
from
https://lyricstranslate.com/en/gathering-lyrics.html
To
https://lyricstranslate.com/en/gathering-sand-and-mercury-lyrics.html#video
.
It shows the lyrics' page.

It's like pressing on the song's title.

It doesn't start the player.

Hope it helps.
Bye

On the main page it works, opera 56.1 on android 5.1, it opens the player and you can listen and watch the video.

On the artists' page that doesn't happen.

When I said "main page" in the previous message I meant the site main page.

To help, the video icon works when used in a lyrics page to open a video in the "trending now" sub page.

In

I can watch and listen to the video

It is as Alberto (Aldebaran2020) describes it in his comment above.
In the screenshot you can see that if you hover over the play icon, the link for the lyrics seems to be linked to the play icon.

Adding a screenshot of the Play button overlapping with the Source button I had mentioned earlier but couldn't screenshot at the time: 📷 https://imgur.com/STTQG4q

Also, if a title is too long the Play button will begin to overlap next to the Language it's in to translated in (ex: Italian → Spanish).
See: 📷 https://imgur.com/7SJsz3S

Then it actually does overlap: 📷 https://imgur.com/gxVvF4p

But in other instances when the title is long, the format changes so that the title is now in two lines, the play button on the second line:

📷 https://imgur.com/KATzOyJ

Is it that at a certain number of characters, the title is formatted to two lines to accommodate for space? If so, that's how it should be for all long titles or else the play button will keep overlapping.

Same issue with Trending Now box, if the title is too long it will begin to overlap:

Now the icon for "Copied translation" is very hard to see on dark theme. Screenshot: https://i.imgur.com/8ow8rKI.png
