Re: .mp4 files locked after viewing

In Windows, video is via DirectShow. Unfortunately, that API generally holds exclusively open any video with an open handle, since it's always required to be ready to render the next frame without crashing. It's probably best to just assume that video won't work like images on Windows, and go from t...

Re: Groundhog day

Microsoft does explicitly say that runtime dlls should never be distributed by the app anymore, and the generic Visual Studio runtime installer should be used instead. Otherwise you risk local security problems in the version that was installed (if you can even get it to run; the new registration re...

Re: 0.92: Browser view areas goes black, restart required

FWIW, Qt 5.10 and up are supposed to have a ton of fixes for HiDPI display and GPU rendering issues, which might be related. XnView is currently on 5.9; now that there's a 5.12 LTS tagged that might be the way to go.

Re: patent free AVIF image format (AV1 key frame)

There's now an open source library for integrators: https://github.com/joedrago/avif Unfortunately, these formats don't support lossless mode, so webp's excellent implemenation will keep being around for that. That's not true in any way, shape, or form. AV1 lossless fits inside AVIF just fine. (As d...

Re: Option to disable XnView from starting up whenever we view an image in fullscreen mode

This has worked for me for years. Under Interface->Keyboard there's a "Pressing ESC once quits XnViewMP" option, do you have that set to Never? Either of the other options should do it.

Re: Several questions and suggestions

There's no one-click convert, but you can add Export to the command bar with a right-click->Customize on it. That's 2-3 click, at least.

Re: MP 0.89 x86: What happened to extrapolated/estimated resolution?

Version 0.89 is pretty old now. {DPI} definitely defaults to 72 (useless as that number is) for me on 0.92.

Re: Catastrophe categories gone

SQLite cache datas in memory, so the file is not written on each changes That's not supposed to be true, unless you turn journaling off. From what I can tell, XnView does indeed turn journaling off (or keep it in-memory), which is likely a miniscule speedup in exchange for the high probability of a...

Re: How do I view .cbr and .cbz files?

When it comes to reading comics, a dedicated reader like Honeyview is better. XnView is still missing 2-page view, which is critical for books for me. I'm pretty sure Honeyview is faster to flip through, too. For every other use, XnView is better, but this comic books isn't something it does well.

Re: 0.89: Category window goes beyond the screen

I can definitely confirm, I reported that a few years ago. Any collection of downloaded files will inevitably have FAR more categories than can ever be displayed.

Re: XN-View 2.42 with HEIF-Plugin: HEIF-file could not be opened

Are there still any HEIF problems? The full HEIF spec was posted to http://standards.iso.org/ittf/PubliclyAvailableStandards/c066067_ISO_IEC_23008-12_2017.zip recently, so any implementation can be compared against it. FWIW: ImageMagick has an implementation based on libde265 now, another point to t...

Re: XN-View 2.42 with HEIF-Plugin: HEIF-file could not be opened

I had a copy of the draft standard, and stupidly forgot to save it. It seems to have been completely scrubbed from the web in preparation for the final standard release later this month. :( That might have helped troubleshoot some issues.

Re: File->Export always disabled in 0.81 (Win x64)

Ah, it looks like it only occurs when I Import Clipboard, which is something I use all the time for screenshots, so it does seem to be the same bug. With regular open, it's always available.

I'm using 0.82 beta 3 now with the same result.
