noticeable time-display lag when scrolling video


Description Liv 2013-01-14 13:39:11 CET
This is minor: When hitting 'right' the stream scrolls by 10sec, but the visual indication features a noticeable lag (one or two seconds). In Gnome MPlayer this is much snappier. For fun, try to click 'right' quickly several times: the visual lag should be even more noticeable.

This should be fixed in git now and will make it into the next release.
Comment 2 Liv 2013-03-07 22:13:58 CET
I tried out 0.5.0 and there are some timer display issues left. For example load an .mp4 file, scroll to 00.51 and then hit 'ctrl+left'. You should see -00.09 displayed before it reverts to 00.00 while the movie starts from the beginning. 

I also see a strange artifact where I scroll to 02.00 then 'ctrl+right' and the timer switches to 03.00 and immediately afterwards to 02.58 and then countdown proceeds as normal.

Hey Liviu,
thanks for getting back on this, but what you describe sounds like a new/different bug (or two) to me. If you can, could you test whether this didn't happen in 0.4.0 already? That'd probably make it easier to hunt down. (Although I can already imagine how to solve the first issue.)
Comment 4 Simon Steinbeiss editbugs 2013-03-08 11:00:25 CET
Fwiw, I can confirm the ctrl+left issue, but not the ctrl+right one...
Comment 5 Liv 2013-03-08 17:50:53 CET
I'm pretty  sure they're new as I've never encountered them before (including 0.4.0), and I paid a deal of attention to the displayed timer. 

I'll look into coming up with a short video for the 'ctrl + right' issue.
Comment 6 Simon Steinbeiss editbugs 2013-03-08 17:56:22 CET
I would assume that the behavior (of gstreamer) was the same before, it just wasn't visible because the timer was only updated in the interval of one tick (=1sec), so it was already corrected when displayed.
I'll look into fixing that.

For the ctrl+right issue it'd be best if you could put that in a new bugreport, so we can track it properly. Thanks!
Comment 7 Simon Steinbeiss editbugs 2013-03-09 01:03:40 CET
The ctrl+left issue should now be fixed in git. Please verify and report a new bug for ctrl+right. Thanks again!
