#3532 closed defect (fixed)

Patch to keep remote frontend from crashing when creating preview

I have a remote frontend which has nfs access to my recording directory but doesn't have write permission. If I go to the "Watch Recordings" screen and select a recording which has no preview image (usually an in-process recording), the frontend will either hang or crash.

The attached patch adds a check to the preview generation process to ensure the target directory is writable. This fixed the problem for me.
