#rockbox log for 2007-01-19

00:00:04DerPapstmaybe something has changed after implementing support for 5.5G 30GB ipod
00:00:43linuxstb__What happens when you try to load Rockbox?
00:02:27DerPapstit just said: err: Open failed
00:02:42linuxstb__Ah, then that's unrelated to my change.
00:03:02linuxstb__All my change did was change what loader2 did after loading Rockbox into RAM.
00:03:24DerPapstoh. ok.
00:03:43DerPapsti'll do some tests tomorrow. currently i can't boot my pc because of energy fluctuations.

00:13:05LinusNi must say that scrolling in the file view is sluggish on my 5G
00:14:02Lars_Git is on my dad's 5G as well
00:14:12Lars_Gnot sluggish but the scroll wheel ratio is low
00:14:45linuxstbSlasheri is working on that.
00:15:10linuxstbI guess you're talking about your 80GB 5G though? :)
00:15:36pixelmaheh... just wanted to ask something similar
00:15:53Mikachuthe scroll wheen delta needs to be different on the various ipods because the wheels are different sizes
00:16:19amiconnI don't think the delta needs to be different
00:16:31amiconnThe problem on the G5 is that the lcd is so slow
00:16:34 Part Llorean
00:16:51amiconn...and the wheel events are throttled in order not to queue up
00:17:16amiconnOtherwise there would be significant afterscroll
00:17:58Lars_Glinuxstb: No, an older 5G not 80Gb
00:18:19Lars_Gamiconn: Makes sense
00:18:38Lars_Gat least they don't queue, that's aggravating
00:19:21 Quit dpassen1 ()
00:19:35Mikachui think they should queue, but the file tree could peek ahead and see how many scrolls there are, and skip directly that many steps ahead
00:19:40LinusNlinuxstb: nah, my 5.5G is not working yet :-)
00:19:49Mikachuor to formulate more correctly, would that be a good idea?
00:20:55Lars_GI dissagree
00:21:28amiconnMikachu: Then all "clients" of the button code would need to peek ahead
00:21:41Lars_Gsince the normal user follows the screen movement and applies forward motion until the selector reaches the correct destination
00:21:43linuxstbI think the way the Apple firmware works is good - it increases the skip from 1 line, to 2, then 4, then 8 etc, depending on the speed.
00:22:04Lars_Gnormally people don't say "I need to scroll down 6 files, that's 23.4º on the scrollwheel"
00:22:08amiconnI'm not sure, maybe the wheel code could count the number of suppressed events, and when it sees an empty queue pass this number as a parameter to the event
00:22:17Lars_Glinuxstb: good idea.

00:22:45webguest98Where can I get the Halflife game?
00:22:46amiconnThen the "client", e.g. list scrolling, could decide whether to use this parameter, and e.g. skip the appropriate number of lines
00:23:02OverandIsn't there already a patch for this?
00:23:11Overandsorry, hadn't read back far enouygh
00:23:14linuxstbwebguest98: You need to get a half-life WAD for Doom. Maybe ask google.
00:23:38OverandDoes the doom port support half-life?
00:23:51Overandwow, generatio ngap there
00:23:56webguest98Where do I put the files?
00:24:00OverandI should have asid "does the quake port"
00:24:04Overandbut there isnt' a quake port, is there?
00:24:05webguest98in .rockbox/doom?
00:24:31OverandI think it goes in /Games/doom actually
00:24:38Overandbut I'm sure that's in the docs.
00:24:42linuxstbNo, it's .rockbox.doom as of about 4 days ago.
00:24:55Overandlinuxstb: ah, neat
00:24:58linuxstbAdd-ons go in (I think) .rockbox/doom/addons/
00:25:06OverandI hadn't noticed any changes i nthe changelogs recently
00:25:24webguest98There was a change?? Do I have to update my iPod or something?

00:28:01linuxstbwebguest98: It's worth updating whenever you get the chance - you just need to download a new and extract it over the top of the existing files. No need to upgrade the bootloader.
00:28:23midgeyamiconn: did you see my most recent pastebin?
00:28:42webguest98Will the other files I put on myself be wiped?
00:29:13DerPapstthe older stuff just gets overwritten
00:29:33linuxstbThe worse that can happen is that your Rockbox settings will be reset, but that only happens occasionally.

00:33:45 Quit mirak (Remote closed the connection)
00:34:08scubacoleswebguest98: search for freedoom
00:34:36LinusNregarding the long buffering times on the 5g ipod, is it because the ata is slow, or because the ata driver gets too little cpu?
00:34:38scubacoleswebguest98: and put the doom2.wad into .rockbox/doom
00:36:56amiconnLinusN: Both, I'd guess
00:38:10amiconnWe don't know how to control parameters of the ata port. Then playing mp3 already takes a good deal of cpu power, and on the G5 graphics is also quite heavy
00:38:17LinusNthe buffering is a lot faster when the music is paused
00:38:35amiconnBoth because of the high resolution and the lcd updates
00:39:34linuxstbI'm sure an asm ATA read function could help a lot though.
00:39:44amiconnOn my mini G2 I can play mp3 with all 5 eq bands enabled, and a peakmeter in the wps without skipping, but then buffering takes nearly forever
00:39:52linuxstbOr DMA - MrH has given us some info on that.
00:40:02amiconnThat became possible due to the improved memcpy
00:40:46 Join NicolasP_ [0] (
00:41:03*amiconn is really curious what the apple firmware uses for transfer
00:41:09*Genre9mp3 notices lately a black vertical line (one pixel thick) showing up when booting on his H300 LCD... should he start get worrying?

00:42:00linuxstbLinusN: Yes.
00:42:31linuxstbSorry, I misread, I meant MrH's docs show us how to do PIO with DMA, I don't know what the Apple firmware does.
00:42:42amiconnGuessing is not as good as knowing...

00:43:26LinusNi wonder if we could use the new pp emulator to investigate stuff like this
00:43:28dan_aIn lieu of some proper ASM optimisation, could Duff's Device help the ATA transfer?
00:44:32amiconnmidgey: Yes, that should work. I would just combine case 2: and default: though
00:44:51amiconnThey run identical code
00:44:54midgeyok, i committed that already
00:45:05midgeyi'll fix it up in a later commit
00:45:21LinusNdan_a: i can't see where that would help

00:45:55Genre9mp3hmmm... the line doesn't show up when starting the original firmware...
00:46:24Genre9mp3also there's a slight backlight fading when the line shows up
00:46:36dan_aLinusN: OK. I don't know enough theory to know where some things will help :)
00:47:36amiconndan_a: Combining transfers on the memory side will help. Duffs device can't do that. Asm can, in case of arm using ldmia and stmia
00:48:48amiconnThe unaligned case needs much bitshifting, but arm seems to be built around a shifter...
00:49:50*amiconn is still puzzled about the coldfire ata port not liking dma with auto-alignment enabled
00:50:14amiconnWithout auto-alignment it works, but then it's slower than my asm loops
00:50:38Mikachuhow long would it take one of you to actually write this asm ata code you've been talking about for a week now? :)
00:51:02dan_aCan we steal code from memcpy (without updating the source address) or is that optimised for the wrong things?

04:32:08LloreanI'm not really sure why there's a custom logo just for the gigabeat.
04:32:21LloreanIt seems like it'd make more sense just to have the logos by screen size rather than individual target.
04:33:23perldiverLlorean make sense, yes
04:33:45LloreanKeeps the source archive from getting too big as the number of targets expand.
04:34:34perldiverbut we have this idea of custom splash going on for gigabeat
04:34:53perldiverso people can create their own ones
04:35:06perldiverand the custom one is included in bootloader as an example
04:35:44perldiverthis one
04:36:04LloreanMost targets don't even have a splash in the bootloader. It's kept as small as possible and purely functional. But 'eh, I've no place to speak on it.

04:37:21perldiverits really part of the "theme" concept, when someone can creat splash+backdrop+wps
04:37:38perldiverfollowing the same style
04:38:31LloreanThe bootloader isn't really considered the same sort of part of Rockbox.
04:38:53LloreanOn many targets it's stored in flash and doesn't even access the disk until Rockbox itself is loaded, sometimes useful for recovering bad filesystems.
04:39:17perldiveryes, i understand
04:39:43perldiverbut do you think offering this option on targets where its possible is bad idea?
04:39:49LloreanWouldn't it be more logical to make the customizable splash the one when Rockbox boots, rather than as part of the bootloader?

04:40:16perldiverits a separate .raw file that should be placed in root

04:40:36LloreanI meant though that wouldn't it make more sense for Rockbox to load the .raw, and not the bootloader?
04:40:55perldiverit loads the .raw
04:41:07LloreanWhat 'it'?
04:41:12LloreanYou've been saying the bootloader so far.
04:41:13perldiverthe bootloader
04:41:36LloreanSo, how does saying "it loads the raw" respond to "Wouldn't it make more sense for Rockbox to load the .raw, and not the bootloader?"
04:41:55LloreanI just don't see why it's a feature of the bootloader rather than the core.
04:42:08perldiveroh i see what you mean now
04:42:28LloreanIf it were a part of the core, every target could have the feature, and at the same time you wouldn't be messing with the current bootloader paradigm.
04:43:05perldiverbut i think it never became a core feature because its not possible on all targets?
04:43:35LloreanOn what target would it be impossible for the core to load an image, other than the Archos Player (because it has a charcell display)?
04:45:16perldiverbut is it possible to display an image before the bootloader displays its data on load?
04:45:22SoapLlorean: now that pijulius is back, should his 34 page thread be pruned, since much is outdated?
04:45:43LloreanSoap: If he wants it pruned, I will.
04:46:08LloreanAs far as I'm concerned, the unsupported builds are none of my business outside of me keeping unrelated threads from showing up on their boards, or keeping them out of our boards.

04:47:55perldiverinteresting train of thought but of course not, its just the dilemma here "bootloader data or splash screen"
04:48:44LloreanBut there's already the normal Rockbox splash upon boot. I just don't see why you feel the need to add any graphics into the bootloader as part of 'themeing' when there's the normal Rockbox splash that could be made themeable.
04:49:20LloreanIt seems rather odd to add a themeable feature to just one target by way of the bootloader, when you could make a universal feature with the normal bootup splash, and leave the bootloaders as they are, text-only and very simple.

05:15:08scubacolesOn the bootloader splash topic, it makes Rockbox look far more "professional" or finished if no boot text is visible.

05:15:55*perldiver hides
05:18:26Lloreanscubacoles: But that can wait for a release version in which something like a simple progress bar can be used.
05:18:36LloreanSomething that can be done identically on all targets.
05:18:50scubacolesyeah, fair call..
05:18:56LloreanThat still doesn't in any way address the "Splash in the core vs bootloader" question.

05:21:11scubacolesWe have to boot with part of the Toshiba bootloader, then flick over to the Rockbox bootloader, going from Toshiba splash to boot text to rockbox splash to file browser (or WPS)
05:21:39Lloreanscubacoles: Rockbox itself should be able to show a splash though.
05:21:54LloreanHow long does the Gigabeat spend in the bootloader?
05:21:58scubacolesover the top of the bootloader text??
05:22:07scubacoles2 seconds
05:22:12perldiverLlorean 2-3 seconds
05:22:28Lloreanscubacoles: Remember, I suggested that the bootloader text be removed for a final version.
05:22:43Llorean2-3 seconds of a blank screen, or a progress bar, followed by a Rockbox splash shouldn't be too jarring, should it?
05:22:59LloreanOn an entirely unrelated note, I believe I shall be joining the ranks of Gigabeat owners shortly.
05:23:29perldiverLlorean thats great, i hope you will
05:23:41hcsjoin us....
05:23:41LloreanWell, it really depends on one final email coming back to me saying "Agreed, we have a deal"
05:24:22perldiverprogress bar followed by a splash sounds great but we have are "own" progress bar screen built into gigabeat
05:24:31LloreanBut I still think the splash should be a part of the core. The bootloader shouldn't have any non-essential code in it except perhaps a very simple, elegant progress bar, so that it can be consistent across all targets.

05:26:48perldiveri'm up for elegant progress bar across all targets
05:26:48LloreanMy big concern is that the bootloader itself should be treated as something that should be minimal and as fast as possible.
05:27:23LloreanThe iPods show a splash on boot, but it's the first thing *after* the bootloader that you see.
05:28:14LloreanEspecially considering that in the end, the ideal for nearly any target would be to get the bootloader itself into flash. I don't know if that's physically possible ever on the Toshibas though.

06:22:25Mnementh114is there a way to charge the ipod and play music when running rockbox?
06:22:47Mnementh114because every time I do, It won't run because it thinks a usb is connected
06:23:10LloreanHold Menu while plugging it in.

06:38:48sneakumsperhaps that message should be "database build in progress. please wait."

06:39:00Lloreanwebguest36: I take it that's a "I haven't read the instructions" then?
06:39:15webguest36im very tired
06:39:43Lloreanwebguest36: And magically the words we put on the screen are easier to read than the words that were already there?
06:40:30webguest36sorry, you lost me
06:40:38sneakumsha ha.
06:40:46Lloreansneakums: Well, the database can be not ready because the build is in progress, or because the person hasn't restarted after, or because it was never initialized in the first place.
06:41:04webguest36that makes sence
06:41:42Lloreanwebguest36: My point is, if you'd just read the bloody manual you wouldn't have had to ask in the first place, and I don't see how "I'm very tired" is an excuse since reading the manual is something you should've done in the first place, and doesn't require any of us to retype things yet again.
06:43:09LloreanSeriously, the manual was written for a reason and it's rather frustrating that when I asked if you'd read it, you attempted to dodge the subject.
06:43:36webguest36i understand that the manual was made for that
06:43:51webguest36and i did read the basic stuff
06:44:00webguest36and a bit more after
06:44:17webguest36i just wanted a live answer
06:44:43webguest36i find it to be faster
06:44:49LloreanDid the logic go something like "They already wrote it down for me, but I should make them type it again even though it's the very same people saying it?"
06:45:24LloreanSo, the logic is "I want to make someone else work to save me time" then.
06:45:39LloreanThat's what "Getting someone to tell it to me so it's faster for me" boils down to.

06:52:30johnd0ePerhaps the charger I have is defective then... Damn cheap foreign electronics...
06:52:53sneakumsyou could check for sure by booting into the apple firmware, if you have dual boot
06:53:08johnd0ewow, sneakums just brought up my next question
06:53:16johnd0ehow can you dualboot with orig firmware?
06:53:43Mouser_XNo, start Rockbox, and while it's booting, turn on the HOLD button (is that right?)
06:53:55Lloreanjohnd0e: If you installed it properly, you just turn on the hold switch immediately after powering up
06:53:56Mouser_X(I know it's close to that)
06:54:01johnd0eIs that in the documentation anywhere?
06:54:09LloreanOr if you have the old bootloader, hole Menu down while booting.
06:54:15johnd0eI scoured the docs and didn't find anything...
06:54:19Lloreanjohnd0e: It's in the IpodFAQ on the website, and *probably* in the manual too.
06:54:42johnd0eLeave it to technology to leave me feeling stupid... haha...
06:55:43johnd0eNote for others: It is the hold switch. Boot the ipod with hold on, and it will boot orig firmware.

09:32:41LinusNthe rockbox fat driver is very optimized for low memory usage
09:32:48GodEateras I would expect
09:33:17LinusNbut that unfortunately made it harder to adapt for 1024-byte physical sectors
09:33:52LinusNi curse toshiba for not allowing 1-sector reads
09:34:05GodEaterI second your curse, and also thumb my nose at them
09:34:25sneakumsi additionally set them on fire
09:34:50GodEaterin fact, I nominate them Rockbox's "Public Enemy No. 1" for the month.
09:36:03GodEaterhere's an idea
09:36:31GodEateris it worth just re-writing ata_read_sectors so that it always reads 2, and always throws away the second one ?
09:36:36GodEatervery inefficient
09:36:41GodEaterbut perhaps easy to make this worth with ?
09:37:18*GodEater waits for his shiny idea to get shot down in flames and stamped on....
09:37:50LinusNGodEater: then it wouldn't be compatible with the existing filesystem
09:37:56GodEaterheh - I can imagine amiconn choking into his breakfast just reading that
09:38:07GodEaterah well - it was just an idea
09:38:31GodEaterhow is the exisiting file system done then ?
09:38:55LinusNaccording to the fat32 specification
09:39:08GodEaterI'll google for it
09:39:21LinusNif we only used every second sector, we will not be able to read the filesystem
09:39:27sneakumsit's a horrible word document somewhere on, iirc
09:40:02sneakumsLinusN: well, i think the idea is more to round the requested sector down to even, read 1024 bytes, and throw away whicever half isn't needed
09:40:10sneakumsso it would read the existing format
09:40:15LinusNGodEater: no need to google,
09:40:40sneakumsbut the writing would be horrible if you try to hide it that way, i guess
09:40:52sneakumssince you'd have to read the 1024 bytes, change the right 512, and write it back

09:41:50GodEaterI did a cursory inspection of the code tree, and never came up with anywhere that we were reading many sectors at once
09:41:58LinusNit's not that fixing the fat32 driver is impossible, just not as easy as i had hoped for
09:42:37LinusNGodEater: exactly, the only places we do that is when we read/write files
09:42:40GodEaterso I always figured it was currently returning 512 byte buffers
09:43:46GodEaterso my idea was to just modify ata_read_sectors to always return the first 512 bytes from a 2 sector read. That way the code calling ata_read_sectors would always get back what it currently expects

09:44:37GodEaterdoes the Toshiba driver moan when you give it an odd starting sector number as well then ?
09:44:56LinusNafaik, yes
09:45:02GodEaterwhat a pain
09:45:04sneakumsthe ata spec seems to indicate you'd have to do the i/o on multiples of the physical sector size

10:22:29webguest52Just wondering, does RockBox work with the iAudio 6?
10:24:52bluebrotherit works only on the players that are stated at the frontpage.
10:25:35webguest52Hm, bummer. I have to buy some number of audio units for a university project but the X5 seems to be discontinued.
10:26:43bluebrotheryou can look in the New Ports forums if there is a discussion about that player.
10:27:01bluebrotherbut I doubt that −− never heard of an iaudio 6
10:27:27webguest52It's the newest version, I thought.
10:28:04Thundercloudbluebrother: the 6 has been out for quite a while.
10:28:47webguest52Any idea if there are technical reasons why Rockbox wouldn't work on the iAudio 6?
10:29:00bluebrotherhmm, I'm definitely not up to date
10:29:25bluebrotherdo you know techical details about the iaudio6? Like CPU?

10:32:39webguest52So I might have to buy the iAudio 6 but I need to know if RockBox will work on them
10:32:55LinusNno it won't, at least not in the near future
10:33:06LinusNtry to get hold of some x5's from another store seems to still have some in stock
10:33:27webguest52University regulations unfortunately require me to purchase from approved sellers, argh.
10:33:38LinusNtheir loss then
10:34:13webguest52Is porting to X6 probably difficult? Or probably similar? Or impossible to say?
10:34:28LinusNthe x6 is a totally different beast, afaik
10:34:40bluebrotherso no more coldfire? Too bad.
10:34:45LinusNvery bad
10:35:41webguest52Well, I'll try to convince my superiors to purchase remaining X5s from non-approved sources.

11:06:48LinusNbut can you buy an m5 nowadays? i think not.
11:07:11webguest52Sorry for the noob question, but what use is the fw file? Reverse engineering the binary firmware?
11:08:10tucozYou can find info on the hardware used for instance
11:09:38tucozwebguest52. it is a lot easier to add a bootloader to the player if the original fw is not encrypted.

11:12:56tucozyep. so i remember it to be

11:33:54GodEaterI would say that it's *technically* possible to port rockbox to all sorts of targets, including a full on PC. That doesn't mean that a) anyone ever will, or b) that it's a good idea :)
11:33:57webguest52I assume the SDK for such chips costs $$$?
11:34:21LinusNit's not so much the $$$, it's rather the NDA
11:34:30GodEaterwebguest52: that's one hurdle - but they're normaly bound up in NDAs too - which would mean we couldn't use them, even if we could afford them

16:20:46linuxstbEAC is generally considered the best, at least in terms of quality.

16:21:41impsyhmm i dont think so
16:21:56impsyCan I still install it now?
16:22:02Mikachurip to wav and encode to flac with anything else otherwise
16:22:57amiconnEAC can use some encoder dlls / acms, and also allows to use any commandline encoder you want
16:24:59FebsDoesn't CDex also allow the use of a command line encoder? If so, then it can encode to FLAC.

16:31:42n1sBradley, Waw is generally uncompressed PCM −− no quality loss
16:31:51markunBradley: WAV and flac are both lossless. You can change from one to the other as much as you like
16:32:13markunn1s: yes, you are more correct as WAV is a container format
16:32:53robin0800markum in preferences converter sayes flac level 5
16:33:02Bradleybut don't you get compound-errors when you convert between WAV and FLAC ?
16:33:11markunBradley: no
16:33:52linuxstbYou can go from WAV -> FLAC -> WAV as many times as you like and have identical WAV files - that's the definition of lossless.
16:34:22FebsThink of FLAC as the audio equivalent of ZIP or RAR.
16:34:27GodEaterBradley: lossless = no information is lost.
16:34:30markunBradley: just don't do the same thing with lossy compression like mp3 or vorbis
16:37:24DataGhostAlso very funny when you see someone transcode a 64kbps mp3 into 320kbps
16:37:32DataGhostand then he tells you he notices a difference in soundquality!
16:37:38DataGhostthe 320kbps sounds a lot better!!11

16:38:37markunDataGhost: I saw some posts about how crappy ogg vorbis was because when he converted his mp3s they sounded worse
16:38:49DataGhostwell, there are a lot of 'stupid' people in the world, at least people who are convinced they are right
16:39:22DataGhostsomeone @ university, doing computer science... claims a non-native (1280x1024 instead of 1400x1050) resolution is much better on a laptop
16:39:39n1smarkun: do you mind if I #if 0 out utf16decode() in unicode.c it isn't used anywhere?
16:39:39Bradleyim really into quality music- i use 320K mps (when i HAVE TO use mp3 that is)
16:39:49DataGhostbecause on 1400x1050 it flickers (??????) and "it's not good for your screen to have it running at the highest resolution"
16:40:01DataGhostI did try to tell him the truth but he won't believe me
16:40:06MikachuDataGhost: maybe he read that about crts in PC Expert

16:44:06FebsABX test is a double blind test.

16:44:41markunn1s: I'm pretty sure it used to use my utf16LEdecode function
16:44:58FebsMy guess is that you wouldn't be able to distiguish a decent MP3 from the original at compression levels far less than 320kbps.
16:45:27DataGhostI read a test about that once
16:45:37DataGhost64-320kbps + original, tested by 5 people
16:45:49n1smarkun: I'm not going to remove the LE and BE functions, those are used at least in id3.c but the general utf16decode, as it isn't used.
16:45:52DataGhostall tracks were burned on a CD in random order so they couldn't tell which
16:46:06DataGhostfor pop music, 64kbps turned out to be the best quality :')
16:46:12markunn1s: how many bytes do you save by removing it?
16:46:23DataGhostand for the rest ~192 kbps was the limit
16:46:24n1sabout 100 on h300 :-)
16:46:39Mikachu5 people is hardly a basis for a scientific study
16:46:54DataGhostMikachu it was published in a computer mag... nuff said :)
16:47:19FebsHydrogen Audio tests show that LAME -V5 is transparent for most people.
16:47:28FebsThat bitrate averages around ~132kbps.
16:47:40Bradleydepends on your hearing ability - but mostly the quality of your equipment (imho)
16:47:54FebsI disagree.

16:48:46 Join Stalwart [0] (
16:48:47FebsIf the 128kbps file was encoded in 1999 by a poor encoder, it has no relation to the quality you might expect today from LAME 3.97.

16:49:05markunFebs: and when you can hear the difference between 192 and 32 kbps? :)

18:08:46Nico_Pfor the two cues in memory, the assumption is that mp3s described bu cuesheets are long so we'll rarely have more than two cuesheets to store

18:30:49Nico_Pah sorry
18:31:34Nico_Pthe bmp is looked for in get_metadata

18:43:29Nico_Pas little as possible i mean
18:44:05Nico_Pthat's something i've been wondering (because of the WPS tokenizer)
18:45:10linuxstb_I guess it will also depend if gcc is optimising for speed or space - chars can sometimes be slower to deal with than ints.
18:46:04 Nick linuxstb_ is now known as linuxstb (n=linuxstb@rockbox/developer/linuxstb)
18:46:59linuxstbAlso, I think that a first commit of album art would probably need to be without the bmp resize patch. I don't think amiconn was happy with how that was implemented.
18:47:25linuxstbBut I'm definitely in favour of committing album art if the impact on non album-art users is minimal.
18:48:21linuxstbThe efficiency of album art itself can then be improved when/if metadata-on-buffer is implemented.
18:48:57Nico_Plinuxstb: i agree about the bmp resize... anyway it's no longer in sync with SVN because of the big changes amiconn made to BMP handling a while ago
18:49:12 Join midgey [0] (
18:49:16Nico_Pit used a pretty bad resizing algorithm
18:50:59Nico_Pso what should i go for ? buffer_alloc with an onn/off option like for the cuesheets (that would require a much bigger buffer but album art users are probably willing to sacrifice the file buffer), the plugin buffer, or the current system (which i don't like much) ?
18:52:25linuxstbWould buffer_alloc store 32 bitmaps?
18:52:44Nico_Pall have different issues... i don't really see which could be the best. Maybe a combination of two, like plugin buffer + wps image buffer for the current bitmap (to avoid it getting overwritten by a plugin)
18:53:00Nico_Plinuxstb: no idea... plus it depends on the size of the bitmaps
18:53:15Nico_Pwhich varies with the size of the target's screen
18:53:46linuxstbDo you know if the wps is loaded before or after buffer_alloc is available?

23:53:23EnterUserNameinstead of raw filesd
23:53:27amiconnI don't have audio book, but even if I would, I don't understand why resume should rewind
23:53:48Mikachuamiconn: if you read a book, to you resume at the exact same word, or a paragraph/page back?
23:53:48Zagoramiconn: so you remember where in the story you are
23:54:17n1sEnterUserName: The video was never raw, but now it has sound too :-)
23:54:21amiconnMikachu: I stop at chapter boundaries, and resume exactly where I left off
23:54:35EnterUserNameoh n1s: wasn't it large avi files where 20 minutes would be like 2 gigs
23:54:50GodEaterI stop wherever and pick up right where I left off
23:55:05EnterUserNameim wondering if it allows something like divx or something similiar..
23:55:10Genre9mp3and what if something interruots you while listening?
23:55:22Zagorwell, an option it is
23:55:26GodEaterI have a good memory =/
23:55:37amiconnEither I remember where I was (audio or printed book) then I would always want to resume exactly where I left off. Or I don't, then I would start over anyway
23:55:44n1sEnterUserName: Nope, the old ones were m2v, which is peg 2 video without sound, now we use mpg which is mpeg video with sound
23:55:58n1sand no divx/xvid
23:56:08amiconnThe latter would take several weeks to apply (that I don't remember where I left off)
23:56:09EnterUserNamempg.. how big of a file is that..
23:56:17EnterUserNamefor 20 mins..
23:56:21linuxstb_As big or as small as you want it...
23:56:30n1sDepends a lot on bitrate
23:56:42EnterUserNamehmm thank you.. its been a whuile since i used it.. i'll give it a try :)
23:56:46amiconnGenre9mp3: That's what pause is for
23:57:40linuxstb_EnterUserName: Look at the PluginMpegplayer wiki page. That has some sample files as well.
23:57:55n1sZagor: maybe the resume on startup option could be extended to resume, resume with rewind and off
23:57:58linuxstb_(as well as a long to-do list of unimplemented features...)
23:58:07ZagorMikachu: have you used the headphone rewind option? does it work well in your opinion?
23:58:12Genre9mp3oh... I thought we were talking about an option for rewind on resume after both pause or stop
23:58:24 Quit Stalwart^ (Connection timed out)
23:58:28MikachuZagor: no, i only use headphone resume without rewind
23:58:44Zagorn1s: nah, that'd need more bits for that option and hence make the config block incompatible. better a new option.
23:58:50Genre9mp3anyway... I never listen to audiobooks so I would never need it actually
