Description Reviczky Ádám János 2007-04-04 00:50:07 UTC
Add some matroska infos for the properties tab in nautilus:
Cover, Attachements, Tags, Chapters, etc.
See the windows shell extension here:
Comment 1 Reviczky Ádám János 2007-04-04 00:53:41 UTC
it depends partially on bug #318748:
Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2007-04-04 00:55:10 UTC
I'm afraid that I won't be adding any matroska specific items to the fold, although having covers show up would be nice. Problem is the same as in bug 318748.
Comment 3 Reviczky Ádám János 2007-04-04 00:58:15 UTC
Ok, but is there another place for supporting such things (fill a bug against)?
Comment 4 Bastien Nocera 2007-04-04 01:03:32 UTC
How about the matroska project itself? I'm sure creating such a property window would be straight forward with their libraries.
Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2008-06-10 21:21:56 UTC
Showing the cover should be dead-easy to implement. The code and interface are in src/plugins/properties/, and you can use test-properties-page in src/ to test your changes.
Comment 6 Bastien Nocera 2008-12-08 15:12:45 UTC
You'd need to use BVW_INFO_COVER to get the cover art if it's available.

I'd rather not see "Cover:" at all if the file doesn't provide one. Also, if you're going to resize the cover to 50x50 (why 50x50?) please provide a way to see the full cover when it's clicked on. Finally "Cover:" should be top-aligned, not center-aligned.

"Cover:" doesn't show if the file doesn't provide one. Cover image now has dynamic size. when cover's clicked on, open new dialog with real size image.

Half updated patch

Here's (half of) my take on how it should work.

- Small cover (50px max in height and width) in a button with no relief
- When the button is clicked, show a popup with a bigger (or much bigger) image
- Popup goes away when button is released

Popup placement should be centered on the original, so that it looks like we "zoomed" into it. Bit more work needed I'm afraid.

Thanks for working on that.
