#10829 closed Bug Report - General (fixed)

Cutlist editor doesn't react to aspect ratio changes

Reported by: John Veness <John.Veness.mythtv@…> Owned by: stichnot
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.26.1
Component: MythTV - Video Playback Version: 0.25-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

When editing the cutlist on a recording which switches between 4:3 and 16:9, the aspect ratio does not visually change on-screen. That is, if I press E while the recording is currently in 4:3 ratio, then navigate to a bit that should be in 16:9, it will still be displayed in 4:3.

In 0.24 and earlier, the aspect ratio used to visibly change as you navigated through the recording in the cutlist editor. This was useful as it was often a good way to see where adverts started and stopped.

This is only a problem in the cutlist editor - normal playback of the recording correctly reacts to aspect ratio changes.

As far as I know, this problem started with the upgrade to 0.25, although I didn't notice it immediately as these kind of mixed aspect ratio recordings are not that common.

I'm up-to-date on 0.25-fixes from the mythbuntu-repos. I'm sorry I'm not in front of my machine right now to give output of --version.

John,

I should be able to figure this out, but I don't have any mixed aspect ratio material to test on. It would very helpful if you could upload a very small sample, or if you are in a position to build and test patches. Are either of those possible?

Thanks for looking into this. I have uploaded two video samples - one changing from 4:3 to 16:9, and one changing from 16:9 to 4:3. These are from UK DVB-T, by the way.

I have also attached the output of --version to this ticket.

By the way, can someone change my embarrassing typo of "reaspect" to "aspect" in the ticket title?

Both links ultimately give me "NOT FOUND" errors. Can you check the permissions?

Never mind, seems to be a browser issue. Thanks for the samples.
