Feeds

I have added a feed that contains images. Does serviio download all of the images right away or does it download them when they are needed?

Re: Feeds

Can i change it to only download them when they are viewed? I have alot of images on my server 10000+

it would be nice if serviio only download the full images when they are viewed, would not stress my web server that much.

No, they are only downloaded when needed ... serviio only serves as a 'proxy'

Re: Feeds

my images are resized before they are sent to save bandwidth, so if serviio want file size of the images the server has to resize all of them.
why does serviio need the file size?

Re: Feeds

Does the client need the file size of the thumbnails also?
What happens if the clients get the wrong file size of the images?

Re: Feeds

for thumbnails, they are cached and downloaded for each image (if they exist in the feed xml).

wrong file size - probably depends on the client

Re: Feeds

so serviio downloads the thumbnails directly when it reads the feed, not when the TV want the thumbnail?
