Req Resize Images on the fly
#17
I'm also really interested in retrieving resized images on the fly through the rpc api. I have together with the designer Joost developed the iPad app 'MediaPortal iViewer' (MPiV) https://plus.google.com/communities/1108...7642540096

Today the app MPiV only support MediaPortal using MPExtended( http://www.mpextended.com/ ) but I keep checking if the Kodi rpc has improved regarding the resized images since adding support for Kodi in MPiV will not happen without this feature. iViewer can resize images on the fly on the client side but scrolling of lists that contain the resized images are very choppy since the images are resized first when they are displayed. This will be the case for all cases when resizing is needed so having a couple of sizes to choose from on the server side will not help, exact pixel size is needed. iViewer also caches images on the client side but I really prefer to have them cached at the server side as well.

MPExtended handle resizing of images on the server side and simply keep the resized images. I have never heard of complaints of that the cache require too much disk space, although the service require Windows where one most often has more available disk space. But I would also assume that the low power hardware (used for Kodi) also has too little power for transcoding images/video as well so one would probably not use these features one them anyway.

The MPExt. service also handle transcoding of video, music and live tv. Also extracting still pictures from video is possible. The main thing I miss is the Kodi support. This can either be achieved by adding support of the Kodi Video/Music/Series databases to MPExtended. Or using the Kodi rpc.

So please consider adding support for resizing images on the fly and simply keep the cached images on disk. Add a user option for how much disk space the cache is allowed to use.
