MarkTraceur added a comment to T144302: Release FileAnnotations on the Beta Cluster.

It's currently stalled awaiting some form of Wikibase on Commons, we decided it would be better to use that for storage rather than re-write the extension after it's released.

MarkTraceur lowered the priority of T85161: Do not display the Permission field in MediaViewer from "Low" to "Lowest".

Could use some input as to the balance between the tiny number of people who use this field for a specific purpose that would be useful to readers on other wikis, compared to the tiny number of people who are confused by the field as it is...not sure where we stand on this. Lowering priority due to small impact on both sides.

MarkTraceur moved T132547: Licensed-PD-Art -template displays partial data in Media Viewer from Backlog to Triaged but Future on the MediaWiki-extensions-MultimediaViewer board.

I'm leaving this stalled until structured data is available to clear up the authorship questions present, even in the file you listed as an example. The current structure of the license template and attribution value above are not conducive to us solving this in a good way.

MarkTraceur moved T58666: Show file annotations in MediaViewer from Backlog to Triaged but Future on the MediaWiki-extensions-MultimediaViewer board.

We won't be working on file annotations until we can store them in structured data, so this work is going to wait for a bit. You could work on this based on the current implementation of FileAnnotations, but I wouldn't recommend it, as the implementation will change.

I agree that we don't want to potentially hurt the credit on most files for a tiny use case - and I agree that we should try to fix this once structured data makes it easier for us to credit creators. Leaving stalled, but we definitely want to fix this as soon as is practicable.

I fear the initial triage and investigation may have missed the point of this bug - @Steakyfask1 are you saying that, after exiting the Media Viewer, the scrollbar for the article is disabled? If so, can you please tell us what browser you're using? I could not reproduce this on English Wikipedia with Google Chrome on Linux.

MarkTraceur lowered the priority of T69302: MultimediaViewer thumbnailBeforeProduceHTML hook breaks other extensions parser tests from "Normal" to "Low".

Coming back to MMV bugs after some significant amount of time, I have to agree with @Tgr that, while this may make it harder to test the extension alongside other extensions, it is absolutely true that the tests' assumptions are mistaken. As this is only within the MediaWiki-extensions-MultimediaViewer project, I'm going to lower the priority on this once again and move it to a holding pen on our workboard. If the maintainers of the Cite extension want to take over this task and alter how their tests work, I would be happy to see an increase in priority.

MarkTraceur changed the status of T157345: Initial thumbnail generation works but returns an error on first access from "Open" to "Stalled".

I suspect this is mostly a problem with the server timing out or being overloaded with the 40mb file that James tested with - we will test aggressively with big files on the beta cluster and see if this remains an issue.

MarkTraceur added a comment to T157346: Thumbnail generation should respect the aspect ratio of the default view of the object, somehow.

Correct, but as above, if the thumbnail has a different aspect ratio from the viewer, there will be a significant visual jump...though I suppose I could try and see if it affects anything. I expect there may also be a problem with the rotation not being perfectly aligned with one axis or another (so the thumbnail will also potentially cut out bits of the object) but it may be unfounded. Ugh, I will try investigating. I'd almost rather not have the viewer and thumbnail codes diverge so much (as the dimension/view code is basically identical right now), but if this is a big deal then I can.

Feb 10 2017, 7:44 PM · 3d, Multimedia
MarkTraceur added a comment to T157346: Thumbnail generation should respect the aspect ratio of the default view of the object, somehow.

I was just mucking around with this, and a friend made an accurate observation that, if we have the thumbnail for e.g. a 1x100 aspect object, be a 1x100 thumbnail (or maybe with some padding, 3x102 or whatever), then when a user rotates in the viewer, they will only see 3/100 of the object. We could fix this by using the entire bounding box, and setting it to a square-ish thumbnail with the greatest dimension setting the value, but square aspect rations tend to squash the object a bit (compared to e.g. Thingiverse's rendering). However, if we only did it to the viewer (i.e. not to the thumbnail), we would see a significant visual jump as the viewer loads in Media Viewer.

@Legoktm yeah, I think @Gilles probably figured we'd be in Diffusion by the time it got deployed. We can move it into Gerrit whenever that's needed, and if there's any information set up for that, that would help me.

MarkTraceur added a comment to T157349: When looking at 3D files, the cursor in MediaViewer should change to the four-way-drag interactive thing at least..

Turns out this is already the case, but the grab/grabbing cursor values aren't supported in webkit or mozilla yet. Adding compat rules (and "move" fallback) in a new patch...

OK, I'll leave this up to @Jdforrester-WMF to decide when he returns to keyboard.

As far as I understand, the 3D extension currently has these capabilities, at least in part. See rTDTP for the thumbnailer, and https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:3d for the extension (with thumbnailing and Media Viewer support).
