On my setup, the aspect ratio of album covers in the Home view of the Web Interface is not correct, it is 16:10 I guess, while it should be squared, since it shows album covers. I'm on 3.0.5786.0. Can anybody confirm this bug?

Same for me, and similar issue with photo aspect ratios throughout the web interface.

Hello @Luke

The new interface is definatly an improvement. Images are not scaled anymore.

However, this introduced another annoying thing:

 

when you have images with a wrong aspect ratio, the remaining space is empty. Somethings this is a little bit disturbing:

56a8d188bde54_27012016151534.png

 

 

 

 

another thing:

when pictures are in portrait, the (landscape) thumb is still stretched:

56a8d24f6cfab_27012016151958.png

 

 

 

my preferences:

- all thumbs same format (preferable square)

- no whitespace

- if thumb does'nt fit in the square, the rest is cropped.

 

next release ?  :-)

 

 

kind regards,

B

What are the dimensions of the image from your first two screenshots, compared to ones that are correct?

@Happy2Play, @Luke,

 

something changed in the webinterface?

Today, If I go to the same moviesection, I see that my "All that jazz" fits nicely in the frame. Perfect!

ah, small correction:

if I go to my localhost:

http://homeserver:8096/web/movies.html?tab=1&topParentId=bba2c4cf26243bc8dfc79f703df13dcf

 

56aa7fd755c2d_28012016215314.png

 

if I use emby connect:

http://app.emby.media/movies.html?tab=1&topParentId=bba2c4cf26243bc8dfc79f703df13dcf

56aa802f926cf_28012016214722.png

 

 

so a small difference.

 

(just clearing things out. Don't worry. I won't call the police)

@luke: your personal stylist here again:

 

previous layout

56ab44a806ce4_56a3a59794836_230120161708

 

current layout

56ab44c5b85d5_29012016115142.png

 

As you can see: David Bowie (Person) is stretched and apspect ratio is not correct. The rectangle image is pressed into the square.

No way to "autocrop and rescale" the image without stretching it?:

Much appreciated (especially by my wife :-) ) is this could be fixed

 

kind regards,

B

This isn't going to change, sorry. It looks sloppy when it's not expanded. If we allow it to crop then it brings a whole other set of complaints from a different set of users. that's why some slight aspect ratio stretching is allowed, within a small amount and this falls within that.

OK @Luke, I can imagine that you can't sattisfy everyone.

 

Thanx for taking a look at this,

kind regards,

Bart

 

PS

>If we allow it to crop then it brings a whole other set of complaints

maybe you just have to try it once :) ?

I don't want the image to be cropped permanently, just in the search results: the display template could maybe modified that it is "visually cropped" in a way as I showed you above. Don't know if this can be done with html5 and/or css, but I assume that this is no problem.
Or other suggestion: display it on a new row, like in emby theater. It is less disturbing then (and more consistent between different kind of apps):

Hi @Luke,

 

I have to come back on this again, sorry.

My library contains pictures and movies.

 

On my localhost they look like

56b1c967f0e49_3022016102909.png

 

on the public interface

56b1c925a5f9d_3022016103048.png

 

 

On the "localhost interface", the images is cropped. You can't see all the information anymore, but is is much more conveniant for me (and other users, I think....)

Another thing: why are images cropped and movies stretched? It would be more consistent to have same behaviour for both.

And at last: because you don't know the orientation of pictures/movies, a "best guess" would be to generate the thumbs in a square (cropped) format.

 

my humble thoughts...

 

 

 

kind regards,

B
