RE: [Release] Picture Slideshow Screensaver - thomc - 2017-02-18

Ever since I've upgraded to Krypton some (not all) of the pictures in the slideshow are blocky - low resolution, never had this problem before. Is there anything I need to clear down?

If it helps the pictures that appear low res do not have a picture taken date in the lower left - the ones that appear as normal do.

Thanks for your help

After installing kodi 17, images from an smb folder doesn't seem to be working. I get only spinning circles. It can see the folders in the smb share fine, but nothing else.

Which platform? I had spinning circles most of the time on Kodibuntu with Kodi 16, but I switched to LibreElec and I haven't seen them since.

RE: [Release] Picture Slideshow Screensaver - ronie - 2017-02-20

great, thx!

the screensaver is crashing at startup, though i'm not sure why.
could you please create a new Debug Log using this version:
screensaver.picture.slideshow-4.2.2.zip

and please provide the entire log, instead of just a part.
you can post it on http://paste.ubuntu.com/ for instance.

RE: [Release] Picture Slideshow Screensaver - DrJogalog - 2017-02-23

Hi Ronie.
After upgrading from KodiV16 to KodiV17, the screensaver add on now seems to struggle with higher resolution or larger file sizes. I am not sure if this is a screensaver issue directly or Kodi related problem.

My images display from a set NFS network folder. They display using pan and scan atfull screen. Since updating to V17, the transition between stills is no longer smooth. If the next image is a lower resolution/filesize, the transition is smooth and the images "blend", if the next image is a larger filesize/resolution, then the last picture fades to black before the image "pops". There is no transition.

Note the "larger images" are not really that big. They are still jpegs at less than 5MB with a resolution around 4352x2904. Th lower resolution images areless than 2MB and a resolution of less than 3000x2000. I have not done any detailed analysis yet, but this has never been a problem until upgrading this time.

Are you aware of any issues? Anything obvious I can check? Thanks.


RE: [Release] Picture Slideshow Screensaver - ronie - 2017-02-23

nope, i'm not aware of any potential causes.

there were hardly any changes to this screensaver between jarvis / krypton.
lots of changes in kodi itself ofc, but i don't know of any that would impact the loading of images.

from your description, it sounds like kodi is taking too long to load the images from your nfs share.

Thanks Ronie. I'll copy some locally to see if it is related. Something doesn't see quite right with this update. When the images pan, it also judders periodically too.


RE: [Release] Picture Slideshow Screensaver - ronie - 2017-02-23

you can enable debug logging and check the kodi.log file, perhaps there are some clues in there

also perhaps check cpu / memory usage on your system...
