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.
maybe even do the same thing for slideshows - instead of waiting for all images to load initially - just start showing them and load on the fly. just an idea..
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.
