FS#7459 - .CBR viewer (for comics)

I think it would be nice to be able to read comics on your mp3… I know it´s possible to convert the files to .jpg but i´m talking about a specific viewer for .cbr files with the ability to zoom, scroll and change pages

cbr and cbz files are just renamed RAR and ZIP files that contain images, usually jpegs.
RAR is a nasty closed format which I don’t know if we can support or if we want to.
ZIP on the other hand is available as nice fluffy open source :-) I think it would be best to add zip reading to the jpeg viewer to make it able
to read cbz files instead of making a separate viewer as it already has zooming capabilities.

well, if it’s already zip, why not extract it using the PC? I don’t think there is real benefit from storing images in zipped format (as it wouldn’t compress well anyway)

and what do you think about a “comic mode” on the image viewer so it scrolls as it should for reading comics (right until the end then back to the left margin and down, then when the page is over it would switch to the beginning of the next page)

Nils Wallménius commented on 2007-07-22 11:24

a “comic mode” would not work very well because there’s no
standard size for the frames in comics and there are also
plenty of right-to-left comics (translated Asian comics for example)
