7z.dll

XnView 2.36 or older contains an AddOn/7z.dll vintage 2006. With this DLL XnView can show the content of a 7-zip archive using the icons of the associated programs. It cannot open the individual files (images) in this archive on my Windows 7 x64 box. :bug: For comparison, the same images in a ZIP ar...

Cannot save 48 bits SGI as PNG or FLIF

My first test with XnViewMP 0.79: Parkjoy frame 200 (a 48bits RGB SGI): Counting colors apparently works, more than 1,400,000. Save as FLIF failed, the result was an empty file (0 bytes) after some minutes. Save as PNG also failed, I got a 24bits PNG instead of a 48bits PNG. And apparently no PNG op...

Re: WebP support (2 issues)

attached WebP file can't be decoded Classic 2.36 with the MP 0.79 webp.dll hates it, the Babelsoft Media Preview hates it (based on a vintage 2014 FFMpeg libav), and WebP 0.5.0 dwebp.exe also hates it: Decoding of DSCN2350.WEbP failed. Status: 7(NOT_ENOUGH_DATA) It appears to be seriously broken.

Re: WebP support

it doesn't recognize webp as type it can handle, which doesn't mean it really can't. Makes sense, and that could be an ordinary bug. FWIW there's a RIFF string in the XnViewShellExt64 binary, but no VP8 for WEBPVP8 or WEBPVP8L. http://encode.ru/threads/2321-FLIF-Free-Lossless-Image-Format?p=47877&v...

Re: WebP support

webp lossless is great, it compresses a lot better than png Two examples, FFmpeg rgbtestsrc, a simple RGB image to spot RGB confusions, PNG: 737 bytes, VP8L (WebP lossless): 134 bytes. Something with DPX and XnView is wrong, it shows RGB as BGR, 302 KB, certainly more than 134 bytes. 8) Clear1x1, a...

Re: 4 thumbnails not working

It simply does not work. Your one thumbnail instead of four with XnView beats my "no thumbnail at all" with Media Peview for a Big Buck Bunny WEBM, but one day later I saw that I got a VP9 from YouTube: VP9 is new, the FFmppeg libav in Media Preview presumably does not yet support it. After some mi...

Re: How to increase history / listing of rename templates

Remotely related observation: The sections in a BAR-file like XnView/default.bar begin with a count= n line followed by button 1 =0 or similar up to button 57 =56 for the last pre-defined action 56 Delete . I determined the pre-defined actions by trial and error up to count= 60 with button 60 =-1 , ...

Re: 4 thumbnails not working

Inspired by this thread I checked that commons has the Big Buck Bunny, and in fact they have an 93 MB medium bitrate OGV (Ogg Video) created six years ago with ffmpeg2theora. Because that might be not state of the art (wrt video format conversions) I also checked what YouTube "offers for download" w...

This bug could be a feature, i.e., something always must have the focus, and without other clues "something" boils down to "first thing". ...

Re: SVG support via rsvg-convert.exe

it doesn't seem there is any interest in implementing that either way. ;). New version (not yet tested) 2.40.13 . But BPG is still at 0.9.6, with an allegedly obsolete libpng, and no known example with an ICC color profile working for me. FFMpeg 3.0 still doesn't support BPG at all, now I wonder if...

Re: Double-clicking on OpenEXR file has no effect

I think I found and fixed the root cause of this issue with regedit . When explorer suggests to open a file extension with something it uses the HKCR\Applications, that is HKCR\Applications\XnView.exe\shell\open\command value (RegSZ) "C:\Program Files (x86)\XnView\xnview.exe" "%1", where the path de...
