v0.6.3 - ruuk - 2012-02-10 01:14
[INDENT]Finished (basically) the photo/tags view
Added ability to start a slideshow from the photo/tags view (PLAY will start/stop and STOP will stop)
Slideshow option now uses photo/tags view for slideshows
Added a slideshow interval option to settings
Fixed lingering tags and issues when changing photo[/INDENT]
Get it here:
macf1an Wrote:while full-screen browsing albums, if a tag has been detected in one photo - it appears present in all following after it (after pressing a key to reveal it)
Should be fixed in this new version.
macf1an Wrote:another one - you select the first photo - you go to full screen, next next next...you reach photo X . You go back to the photo preview screen - still at the first photo.
Added to the TODO. Might make it an option as some may prefer this behavior.
macf1an Wrote:how about pressing the "play" button for starting a slideshow from the full-screen viewing?
Way ahead of you on this one. In the new version, PLAY will start/stop the slideshow, and STOP will stop it.
macf1an Wrote:I hope are you pushing the caching mechanism soon..
I've got the whole team slaving away... oh wait, I'm the whole team.
Probably not soon. Even a simple mechanism is not so simple.
macf1an Wrote:have you thought about an option to show album likes/comments/descriptions like you can for single photos?
I think about a lot of things.
macf1an Wrote:you should consider continuously preloading the images in the album and not only the visible on the screen - in large albums you can scroll very fast to the 50th image and wait a long time to see the previews, but if you are doing it on the fly, by the time you are on pic 20 - the entire album will be received. In other words - don't stop preloading after the visible images are drawn.
Currently all preloading that is done is handled by XBMC. Going beyond that is probably a lot more than I'm willing to do right now. My family needs to see more than just the back of my head sometime. Plus there's all the time I spend responding to forum posts
macf1an Wrote:profile albums are limited to 200 pix - knowing that, you can probably skip the slider and just load up to that number..I doubt someone will be needing only the first 5 images of every album they have..
'Photos of me' doesn't have a limit so the slider stays, but I changed the default to 200 for the next version.
macf1an Wrote:btw loading albums takes forever ... 15-20 seconds at least
I just looked and there was some code that had to fetch the actual thumbnail URL that was (as I recall) a workaround for XBMC being unable to get it. I removed it and it seems the original problem is gone. It will be in the next version.

Great, I'll take a look at it later!
About the caching stuff .. TheBigPicture dev sphere has just introduced working image caching to his script - why not take a peek and maybe stea...uhm *cough* exchange ideas There are a few caching/downloading scripts floating around the forum - not sure if they are OK for photos though..
about the continuous preloading images stuff..OK I get it, chillax.. you are too scared of coding around the XBMC stuff...it's fine - you don't have to bring your family in the picture to protect you..

somehow I managed to stick one of my album names on the top banner instead of the default "ALBUMS" text.. When entering a second album - both names were shown with a colon inbetween. I can't replicate it again :\
Some notification for entering and exiting slideshow would be nice.. and since you've disabled zooming on pix - an aspect toggle switch won't be bad..most fb pix are 4:3 and cause black bars
no speed difference in loading albums
would it be possible to jump to a tagged person's profile directly ?

I'll look at the code.

Well, I didn't disable zoom, I'm just handling the slideshow myself instead of letting XBMC do it. That was necessary to have any sort of control over anything. I'll think about what I can do.
macf1an Wrote:no speed difference in loading albums
I said the next version. Not the one your using. I changed the code after I uploaded the zip.

Good idea - added to the TODO list - I'm gonna start calling it macf1an's todo list
v0.6.4 - ruuk - 2012-02-11 22:23
[INDENT]Restarts interval when pressing prev/next or moving through tags during slideshow
Changed default photo limit to 200
Removed album thumbnail url resolving, should speed up albums display
Pop up notification on slideshow on/off[/INDENT]

ruuk Wrote:Well, I think that is outside the scope of what I'm trying to do with this app. Personally, though I've thought about it, I have no immediate plans to write an app for more general Facebook stuff.
Haven't you changed your mind? I know that XBMC is a MEDIA Center and not a general purpose PC... but it would be great to be able to see your friend's posts while listening to your favorite music from the comfort of your couch when coming back from work
In any case, thanks for the work so far. The app is great
