One of the features I am missing the most in current USDX (compared to CMD) is the feature of changing the display of the video (or: how the video is currently displayed).
In order to avoid black bars on top/bottom in the video preview (song selection) stealing space in the small cover-sized preview, I remove black bars from my videos with HandBrake. However, currently, videos are displayed to fill the available screen height, thus cropping lots of video data on the left and right for widescreen videos.
In CMD, it was possible to toggle between crop, stretch and fill (or something like that). I’d be very happy if I could at least switch the behavior so that widescreen videos are shown in full width, adding black bars at the top/bottom.
Thus, these options would be nice:
Since there is a wide variety of video aspect ratios (some old ones almost square, some newer ones extremely widescreen), I would probably resort to the last option as a default. In CMD, it could be toggled for each video and the setting was saved (but I would not need that and I think that would be a lot of work).
I looked at the CMD code and a while ago tried to implement that in the current USDX, but it was more comprehensive than I thought and failed.
So if anyone able to code this thinks this is a good idea, I’d be glad to help and discuss =)
I have (finally) successfully extended the appveyor CI script to build for all three platforms.
The upside of AppVeyor is that it allows to store build artifacts for up to 6 months (depeding on file size) – and I don’t see a downside to build on Travis and on AppVeyor in parallel. Plus I think the Travis build for Linux was broken anyways, right?
For Windows, I haven’t tested the resulting Installer or portable version, for Mac it seems that there the resulting dmg contains different versions of some libraries and it does not work on my mac, and for Linux, I fail at running the resulting AppImage (it’s the first time I have worked with AppImages.
So far, the changes are in my fork. If any of you can help with either platform, it would be highly appreciated.
(click on the respective platform, then select „Artifacts“ in the menu)
Tournament mode is not quite what I had in mind, it's too structured. A similar comparison would be the player profile setup used in ultra start - play for example.
At least the advantage in my eyes is the ability for personalized leaderboards without needing more than, say, 2 microphones for 1 vs 1 "matches". Unfortunately ultra star play is very much an early alpha at the moment, is this a feature you see coming in the near future?
