#2154 closed enhancement (invalid)

Patch to make mythgallery scale according to screen aspect ratio

Reported by: drdaz7@… Owned by: danielk
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.21
Component: mythgallery Version: head
Severity: low Keywords: aspect ratio
Cc: Ticket locked: no


I'm using a widescreen CRT with myth and mythgallery does not adjust picture aspect ratio according to the DisplaySize? defined in xorg.conf.

This patch is based on the patch found in this thread:;#72998

There is one minor addition to the patch referenced in that link, as using that patch left rotated images with the wrong aspect again. This patch corrects the problem.

I used the svn diff command to generate this patch... I hope this is appropriate for submission.

I'm a little confused by the classification of this patch as a new enhancement. The manner in which mythgallery displays pictures is wrong for users who don't have 4:3 displays. Surely that should be considered a bug? If I've got my definitions messed up, then I'd be interested to see the correct definitions of the terms.

FWIW I'm using this without issue on an otherwise untouched 0.19-fixes version of mythgallery.

The patch no longer applies.

But more importantly, it looks like it only fixes this for glsingleview.cpp not singleview.cpp. Also, the aspect detection code should be in a utility class like GalleryUtil?, not in glsingleview.cpp.

I have created some code to make mythgallery display the pictures ok when using a widescreen.

The patches are attached.

The XOpenDisplay calls don't specify the display to open, have a look how videoout_xv.cpp sets the display_aspect variable wrt to Xinerama and use MythXOpenDisplay so that you open the correct display.

Also there are several potential divide by zero possibilities in getScaleFactorW() and getScaleFactorH(). Please avoid these coredumps and replace with these single function GetDisplayAspect?() to match the video output code.

Formatting, 4 spaces for intentation, "if" is not a function, don't use K&R bracing, 80 chars per line max, etc. See the formatting guidelines linked to from the TicketHowTo.
