MythVideo does not preserve aspect ratio of cover art images

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Anduin Withers
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.22
Component: mythvideo Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords: mythvideo aspect ratio
Cc: Ticket locked: no


When choosing View Detail in MythVideo? the cover art image aspect ratio is not maintained which results in a very stretched image.

Using Trunk via Mythbuntu 7.10

It wasn't unfortunately. [15253] only affected the gallery grid and not the screen mentioned in the ticket.

Although preserving the aspect ratio of the coverart in the details view can probably be handled in the code, it's mostly a matter of the theme. The coverart images tend to be of similar aspect ratios and sizes, if you are seeing them 'very stretched' then it suggests that either the theme you are using has an incorrectly sized area or that you are using non-standard (imdb) coverart imagery.

I apologise, the above comment is bogus. (I need to read more carefully)

The same problem also occurs when in List View (Video List) and Browse View (Video Browser) also.

It is fairly easy to change those QImage::ScaleFree?'s to QImage::ScaleMin? it looks ugly unless you change the theme. MythVideo? uses a crap method to handle videos without covers i.e. it puts the video cover over the "cover not found" image. If you preserve the aspect ratio you will see bits of the other image.

Does this issue still apply after mythUI migration of mythvideo?
