Xpra: Ticket #290: Launcher: expose encoding speed and quality


currently the launcher exposes a "quality" combobox that I believe is ignored, or at least has misleading/outdated labels. It also doesn't expose a "speed" combobox.

It would be good to expose both of those features, with a default on Auto.

Many launcher improvements in r3806 + r3807 + r3809

The default is unchanged: whatever is in the file (or global default file) should be what is shown in the menu. Note: if two options are selected in one of the menus then the first one is used as label. (eg: "Auto" + "min=Low Latency" shows up as "Auto")

Please close when tested.

The rich option menu looks good. However, it still seems to me that the parameters from my session file are ignored.

I have this in the file:


But when running, if I go to the tray menu, quality is set to "Fixed quality: auto", speed is set to "Fixed speed: auto". Is that expected?

It is expected:

Fixed XXXX : Auto

Means that you are using auto-mode with "min-XXXXX".

If you switch to fixed quality/speed, the min-XXXXX option will go to auto, and vice versa.

Put another way with some specific examples:

Make sense? (not saying that there aren't bugs... just that what you describe looks fine, though we may want to word it differently?)

What puzzles me is that the parameters from the file do not appear to be reflected in the tray menu. Perhaps they are taken into account anyway, but what I see is the same as if they were not specified at all.

I believe that's because you've chosen values which aren't mapped to the default list of options, which is defined as:

LOSSLESS = "Lossless"
                50      : "Average",
                30      : "Low",
QUALITY_OPTIONS[1]  = "Lowest"
                70      : "Low Latency",
                30      : "Low Bandwidth",
SPEED_OPTIONS[0]    = "Auto"
SPEED_OPTIONS[1]    = "Lowest Bandwidth"
SPEED_OPTIONS[100]  = "Lowest Latency"

r3857 will just add the missing values to the menu.

Confirmed, thanks!
