#649 closed enhancement (fixed)

Make preview generation for broken recordings faster

Description

There are two cases where it takes a long time: when the file is empty and also when the keyframe map is broken/missing.

The first could be made faster by just failing quickly if the file is empty or doesn't exist, and the second by just capturing the first frame if there is a problem with the keyframe map.

When these cases are taken care of, we can simplify preview generation in the Playback box (by not using a seperate thread and backend connection.)

(In [7878]) Closes #649.

This fails more quickly when a preview can not be generated due to a missing or tiny video file. And disables seeking to a more desirable frame when there is no keyframe map.
