MotiVideo

This app is inspired by two things: those motivational posters you see about everywhere, and Lionel Messi’s awesome performance against Arsenal in April 2010. It’s, well, a motivational poster with a moving picture. The video is streamed from YouTube. Both the title and small text are customizable, but an overly long paragraph will ruin the display. This will be fixed in future versions.

If you interested, you’re free to use this on your own site, blog, forum, etc.

Just paste the following code into your page’s HTML with the necessary modifications on the highlighted parts. Note that you need to input the title, small text, and video ID twice; this is not a mistake.

<object id="video" classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"

(I hope this won’t gobble up my bandwidth quota 😛 )
