Video list - go slow

Post by xps911 » Thu May 22, 2014 4:06 pm

Hi, I'm trying to delete some videos, and everytime i go into the video list (one has a red ! next to it), the iphone goes on a complete go-slow, and wont let me delete :(

The red ! only means that raw video is no longer "needed" (already used for overlay or linkes laps were deleted...if I remenber correctly) and will be deleted if tapping the housekeeping button.

Only videos sitting in LapTimer's recording area can be deleted from the Video List. Videos stored in the Photo Library need to be deleted from there. In case the list is getting slow, this is an issue with iOS's media library. Rebooting will help :-(

i found out the issue, it's because I have a lot of videos on my iphone, and takes a long time to process all the thumbnails (hangs the phone until it is done).

Yes, that's possible. Thumbnails are actually loaded when displayed, but LapTimer indeed reads all video's meta data in the beginning. That should probably be optimized.
