Powerpoint is slow to load
Status in OpenLP:
Originally reported in forum:
The problem is that when we load a PPT we generate thumbnails for the preview
and the slidecontroller, and extract notes and titles for showing on the stage
view. This data is stored in a folder which name is a md5-hash of the full path
of the ppt-file.
When a presentation is placed in the servicemanager, the file is copied to
the servicemanager folder, and when going live OpenLP creates a hash of the new
full path of the file (now in the servicemanager folder) which of course is
different from the old hash, and therefore OpenLP generates the thumbnails etc
A few solutions could be made:
* Make the hash based on the file content instead of the file path (might be
a bit slow on big files).
* When adding a ppt-file to the servicemanager, copy the old folder to the
* Add the thumbnails etc to the service file.
