html5video – html5 video support for Gallery3

I recently wrote about some Gallery3 modules that I find useful. One Idea that came up to my mind was to implement html5 video in Galley 3. So I did that. The result is not that spectacular, but can be found and downloaded from GitHub. The big advantage compared to other video.js or flash based solutions is a better support for mobile devices.

The installation is simple, just copy the module to the modules folder of your Gallery3 installation and enable it in the Admin/Modules panel.

You can see the result for example in my Gallery, e.g. in the Grass rendering video page. A precondition is of course your browser supports the video tag.

Computing the PageRank on your own?

Lately I have been reading a lot about search engines, specifically, because I wanted to know how random content is handled. I also tried to compute the PageRank for a random connectivity matrix. However I thought t would be interesting to compute the same ranking for my own blog. People already tried to replicate what Google does. I also found some libraries, that provide this functionality:

However these are to complicated and primarily supposed to be used for search, so it not so much fun to use these for experimenting, unless you want to build a search engine.
