looks great! but why are they using the google video one? wouldn't it be better to offer the one that is in google reader? why would you need to fullscreen an audio message?! unless they are planning on introducing video into GTalk, and you will be able to send videomails. now that would be cool!

I have the new version of Google Talk, but no change in Gmail, so I don't have the built-in player :-(

pretty useful this new version, they have done all what we expected!!!
Thanks Gmail/Gtalk team :)

just used the one i've got. that shouldn't make a difference though. is anyone else seeing the google video version? i can't see why they would have put this in gmail. maybe it's your cache Sankar, but not really sure how it could be.

is there anyway to save all these VM onto a MP3 player ?? that is move the datestream onto a different device ?

Secondly any threshold in terms of space/time for a VM msg ??

Just download them from Gmail.

Max-duration: 10 mins (that's around 2MB).

Google uses this player for voicemail. It's the same as for Google Video.

Maybe there's a problem with the width of the player.

no one else can see it apart from Sankar. Why would the have video controls for audio though? thats just stupid.

maybe google likes me.. ha ha just kidding. i dont know why i have like that...

i dont use google video at all. not even visited google video site for the past 4 months ? then how come! i think maybe a width problem as inoux said

i can't see it yet but it seems to me that the video controls could be for a future or soon-to-be-release option to send webcam video captures or Google Video attachments, etc to GMail users. just think about it.

Take a look at a snippet of gmail code

the key thing to grab is this line

It come up with an empty full screen Google video screen (notice the Google video icon in the bottom right hand corner

Sorry Ionut, I just read your post and realized you already said what I posted.
One thing I did forget to mention though in the last post was to also take a look at the param name=movie snippet, I think this is the most telling
