Properly abort MediaViewer preload requests
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Whenever the user navigates to some image in MediaViewer, it starts preloading the next image. These requests are never aborted; when quickly navigating over dozens of images, they pile up and make things very slow. Unnecessary AJAX queries should be properly aborted.

Given how much our architecture relies on promises, this probably won't be easy.

For the sake of people with metered/capped bandwidth plans, this is very important.

Mass-removing the Multimedia tag from MediaViewer tasks, as this is now being worked on by the Reading department, not Editing's Multimedia team.

Downgrading to Low for now. MWV not being actively worked on from the consumption standpoint.

@dr0ptp4kt was this closed intentionally? Still seems like one of the more worthwhile fixes to MV, IMO.

I think the mark-as-resolved was an error. Feel free to re-open. The downgrade from Normal to Low was intentional based on the not-actively-worked rationale.
