Video Wall resolution
« on: May 05, 2011, 12:30:29 pm »
I must say that Videowall really is a great item, however, somewhat pity that the pictures are restricted to a maximum of 75kb, I have a big screen TV (46 inch) and the pictures are fuzzy... (or did I do something wrong?)

The size is small to get a good load speed. It is a good trade off....

Some questions:
- how do you generate the folder.jpg files?
- what video setting do you use on your mede8er?
- and how close are you sitting to your big screen?  ;D Probably too close....

Maybe it's too pixelate, too small, or too hard to read, but if you want to see movie title, there are folder name in both top/bottom of the screen. And navigating videowall is only small part while playing Mede8er :)

Well, first I run YAMJ, and then I notice the best pictures to use are between 250 and 500 kb (not the booklet pictures but the "background" pictures with all the info on it), so I reduce them with pixresizer so they are not larger than 75 kb.
With 75kb you can simply not get a good enough resolution to project on a large screen (and no, I'm not to close to my screen...  :)

Reading your comment I get the impression that you are talking to reduce the about.jpg files to max 75kb?
That is not needed. The 75kb limit is only for the folder.jpg files and not for the about.jpg files.

In my config most folder.jpg files are between 50kb and 75kb.
The about.jpg pictures are around 300kb to around 500kb

If you use YamJToMede8er it will generate these pictures for you around this size.
