Community meeting on IRC 11th Mar 2021

Schedule: Thursday 11th Mar 2021 at 08:00am UTC (Check here for your local time)

Topic proposals for the meeting:

  • add your name/nick using the template below to suggest a topic.
  • indicate how much time you will need for the topic so we can time-box the meeting accordingly
  • please be as thorough as you can with your question/topic
  • if you can’t make the meeting please ask and then name a substitute who can in your place.

It is expected that you show up and present your topic, or name a substitute and make sure they attend in your absence. These IRC meetings are for real time participation and live discussions, otherwise you can post the topic on here and get responses that way.

We need you to be present to clarify details in the topic, and to ensure the discussion is leading to the answers you are looking for! If you do not participate or your question/topic isn’t clear enough it will be postponed. Also: Always ask for more time than you anticipate your topics needs!

Please try and have your topics ready at least 3 days before the meeting. This will help us have answers ready beforehand to save time. Topics announced afterwards will be postponed to the next meeting.

(Repost after last meeting as it was partly postponed)

  • Name / IRC nick: thigg
  • topic: QtMediaPlayer, change audiosspeed with pitch compensation
  • some details about the topic: When playing audiobooks or podcasts people like to change the playback speed. Currently the mediaplayer allows adjusting the speed but it has no pitch compensation. Thus the speakers are pitched higher/lower. Gstreamer has plugins that can be put into the pipeline which do this, but the gstreamer pipeline is only modifyable after QT5.12. Are workarounds possible? Is it planned to add some kind of feature that allows this easily?
  • approx time needed: 10 min
  • optional: I will make it to the meeting
  • Name / IRC nick: Setok
  • topic: Status of Sailfish X
  • some details about the topic: No new device support has been announced in well over a year with currently supported devices ageing and mostly unavailable in shops. Jolla’s main page does not link to Sailfish X. Is it now considered to be in maintenance mode or is the plan still to develop it (for e.g. Xperia 10 ii)?
  • approx time needed: 10min
