I really love the books.logos.com idea. I really hope that you can add to it, possibly by allowing us to suggest archive.org PDFs to the service.

But there are a few problems that need to be sorted out.

  1. Images are requested via http before being redirected to https. That's a wasted call.
  2. Images that have already been downloaded are requested again. There are two requests:
    • One to Amazon S3 which gives the error "The requested range is not satisfiable"
    • One to mediaapi.logos.com
  3. There doesn't seem to be any way of selecting the text in the image. I know there'll be lots of OCR errors, but it would still be useful.
  4. Hyperlinks to bible references have been added, which is great. But it would be nice if:
    • The reference showed on hover, and not just on click.
    • The references subtly highlighted in some way (as in normal resources).
  5. As someone else has mentioned, a fit width option would be useful.
  6. There's a bug which causes images to switch between colour/mono has you go through them.

Thanks for pointing these out, Mark!  We're definitely hoping to improve on the initial feature.

I haven't personally seen this.  Does this happen for all resources or only specific resources?

I only have one resource as the others I'd "ordered" haven't arrived yet. I've downloaded all the media items for this resource. I don't know if that makes a difference. Here's a screencast for you:
