Playback of video files and slideshows with mixed content (photos and videos)

Post by XnView-User » Fri Sep 07, 2018 7:21 pm

Hi, I’m a longtime user and big fan of XnView Classic. The development of the newer XnView MP I’m constantly observing but stick for the time being to the, in my opinion more mature XnView Classic.

One thing that I find a bit annoying is that…

XnView Classic and XnView MP in their current versions are still not suitable for simple slideshows with mixed content (photos and videos).

XnView Classic can’t play *.mts und *.mp4 video files at all and doesn’t even display their thumbnails.

XnView MP is at least capable of displaying those thumbnails but is almost as useless for a playback of *.mts und *.mp4 videos. Yes, XnView MP can theoretically play these video files, in contrary to XnView Classic, but only jerky, choppy and with the audio sound also choppy and pretty much distorted.

It would be great if these issues could be resolved, some time.

Xnview classic and MP do can play .mp4 files, provided the corresponding codecs are installed (don't know for .mts), but I agree with Xnview user, XnviewMP is not suitable for mixed slideshows; the wiewer of XnviewMP is poor compared to 'classic': jerky, choppy.. for at least 4 seconds in full screen and no diplay of time;
For me Xnviex classic is still the reference, and automatic slideshow with spacebar is fine to browse a folder containing both videos and photos.
