MP 0.38 viewer stuck in low-res preview

Post by thibaud » Fri Jul 22, 2011 8:59 am

first thing I noticed with 0.38 (not sure about 0.35 since I haven't tested it much).
on large files (4000px wide jpeg) the viewer often get stuck in low-res preview.
happens when navigating quickly (prev/next) a folder containing several consecutive large file.
idea: going to prev file on a file that has not had the time to initialize properly because the too fast pace of next>next navigation skipped it somehow.

I was just speculating on the occurrence of the buggy behavior.
the issue is: the viewer get stuck in low-res (scaled up) preview. (happens only on large file)

nope there definitively is a bug in there, it actually happens all the time when navigating a high-res picture folder.
MP is unusable for me like this.
let me know how I can help in solving this issue.

the issue always occur when navigating "too" quickly. (seems to occur more specifically when going "next/prev" while the current image is still being decoded (displayed as low-res)

2 test case (win7 x64):
  • case 1 : 1 folder of 400 jpg+CR2 (5200 x 3400)
  • case 2 : 1 folder of +/- 1000 average res .jpg with several high res .jpg (4000x2000).
result with 0.38.7:
  • case 1 : at some point CR2 file start to get displayed as small thumbs not upscaled and jpeg as upscaled low-res, from that point on ALL images get stuck in lower-res
  • case 1 : when I get to a specific group (2 consecutive files) of higher res jpgs and going next/prev arround this group I always end up with one image display stuck in lower-res (not always the high-res one)
result with 0.35 x64.:
  • case 1 : no problem at all.
  • case 1 : same prob as 0.38.7

Could you send me a zip with some pictures to be able to reproduce?
