XnViewMediaDetector - multiple issues

Post by Tpau » Thu Jun 18, 2009 7:51 am

1. problem: after importing images file-handles (one up to multiple!) are kept open on the SD-Card - thus causing safe removal to fail (unlocker.exe helps)
Suggestion: employ correct use of close(filehandle/dirhandle) and possibly check that those calls are performed even in case of internal exceptions

2. problem: EXIF-field for rotation angle does not get reset to 0° on importing with rotation - thus causing some viewers to rotate already rotated images.
Suggestion: reset the orientation field and add an exif-comment with the original orientation in order to preserve it

3. problem: RAW images are not imported (.rw2)

Nice to have:
1) please add an exit/quit function to the tray-context menu - having to use the task manager's kill function is a bit cumbersome
2) option to auto-dismount media (safe-remove) on completed import

In adition:
4) New camera's supporting AVCHD store movies with extension *.MTS
These are ignored by media detector.
Would be nice copy them automatically along with the pictures as well, just like it used to with recorded .MOV's and .AVI's

Hello,
I agree, XnViewMediaDetector has to be improved.
5-) It will be also interesting to have a button "reload" (re-mount or rescan) the media, because, I always have (under Ubuntu + Wine) to eject and re-insert the media to see the content into XnViewMediaDetector v1.6.1).
Maybe it will be also interesting to have the ability to mount (scan) via a browser, an other selected volume ,
and maybe an other button "Unmount" (safety media removal) is interesting too AND/OR an option to auto-dismount media (safe-remove) on completed import ?

RAW (Sony *.ARW) can be imported but only after the jpegs are. Media Dectector doesn't seem to want to import all images at the same time.

I would like to be able to tag in IPTC like tags are added in Flickr. It also should be able to import from USB drives not just memory cards.

I don't have this problem...

You have exit in the menu

If you use 'check media', the media will be reloaded

Hello,
For Information, about these 2 items. Do not work under Wine/Ubuntu

It would be also a good thing to have MediaDetector under the MP's versions !
