Can you give some idea where this stands relative to other XnView priorities? I also would like to know where the issue of Media Detector reacting to USB events stands as well. Currently, I have to manually start it whenever I load a memory (SD, CF, etc.) card on a USB-attached reader.gclunsf wrote:Hi, Pierre. I wanted to know if any more thought has been given to having Media Detector and XnView use the same IPTC templates rather than having them separate. Back on Dec 10, 2007 an anonymous user posted the following:
You answered with the following:Third, it would be nice if I could use the IPTC templates I create in the media detector within XnView also. At the moment you can load IPTC templates from XnView, but I don't know where the media detector has saved the ones I've already created there. Also it would be nice if I could choose the template I want in a drop-down-menu. It works like this in the media detector now, but not within XnView itself.At the very least I would really like to see one set of IPTC templates used for both XnView and Media Detector. Personally, I prefer the IPTC templates be the ones XnView uses today but I see no reason it can't be the other way around. I just want to have to maintain only one set of IPTC templates. I feel the same way about the categories field if it is being handled separately between XnView and Media Detector.Currently MediaDetector don't use the same format for IPTC template, and save them in registry
I have seen other posts in this thread suggesting Media Detector be included as part of XnView rather than remaining a separate component. I also wholeheartedly support that as I feel that might go a long way toward resolving issues where XnView does things one way and Media Detector does the same things a different way.
Like many others I really appreciate your work on this.
I'm really sorry, i'm very busy currently. I'll try to work on MediaDetector for next release of XnViewgclunsf wrote: Can you give some idea where this stands relative to other XnView priorities?

Good questions, I just tested the download link posted above and found a vintage 2007 version 188.8.131.52 of XnViewMediaDetector.exe in the ZIP. In my XnView folder on Windows 7 SP 1 x64 I already had a fresher version 184.108.40.206, but I can't tell if this software ever worked as it should, because I have no scanner or camera to test it.nonob wrote:Is it always usable ?

I checked mu xnview windows folder and didn't found Xnviewmediadetector.Good questions, I just tested the download link posted above and found a vintage 2007 version 220.127.116.11 of XnViewMediaDetector.exe in the ZIP.

Generally any Windows software you have for a scanner or camera should contain an alternative.
I tried windows solutions (import with Windows and Import with live gallery) but it doesn't have all the features i'm searching.On the control panel for Windows 2000 the name was "scanners and cameras". I'm not sure where it is on Windows 7, it could be related to the optional "fax + scan" feature. On the "add or remove programs" page check out "activate or deactivate Windows features", "fax + scan" belongs to the printer features.
At the end of the day there can be one application handling "scan events" (or "USB camera connected" events).
Yeah, find somebody who can tell you how it's supposed to work. But you have to tell them which Windows version you're using. The difference between, say, Win 7 32bits and Win 7 64bits could be relevant: XnView classic and the media detector are 32bit applications. And Microsoft changed their ideas about "auto play" several times over the years.nonob wrote:If you have others suggestions..
I know how it works, it's just that it doesn't provide all the functions i want..Yeah, find somebody who can tell you how it's supposed to work.
I downloaded the full zip package and found the new media detector : version 1.7.One simple thing, you find version 1.8 of the media detector in the full package. If you are on a 64bits Windows get the full package as ZIP, and try to copy XnViewMediaDetector.exe to the folder where you have XnView.exe, on my box it's C:\program files (x86)\XnView. If you are on a 32bits Windows get the full package with installer, and install it. Otherwise replacing the shell extension contained in the full package can be tricky, you might have to reboot.
