(10 III) I’ve had some issues with media files in Piepmatz Twitter client. Very frequently videos did not start, but crashed the app instead. Also, if they start, the needed a rather long time to load and stuttered at the beginning.
Annoying, but as a Sailfish user - you know…
But recently I was trying to find out why Opera-Browser permanently respawns every X minutes with a headless instance (will start another thread about this), and one of my concerns was the desktop file. So, I cleaned the desktop files in /usr/share/applications relating to the MimeType item. Especially the Android desktop files have veeeryyy long lines after “MimeType=”, but I just need a second browser for ad-free youtube… so, I removed irrelevant entries.
There was also some facebook-related stuff, IDK, → rm *. (For unexperienced users: please do NOT delete all desktop files unless you want to reflash your device anyway)
After this, the mimeinfo.cache has to be rebuilt with “update-desktop-database” (or just delete and reboot).
Now, I got notifications from APK-Pure. This happened never before. There’s no need to have this app installed, but it was there and never told me anything until now… okay, uninstalled it.
But amazingly, the Piepmatz-Issues are mostly gone. Videos are starting faster now and crash rarely, and if they do, they crash “different”.
So - my question: is my observation reasonable, on a technical level? @Ygriega told me once he just uses the built in player for Piepmatz. Is it possible to start something (i.e. a videostream) and accidentally launch some androshit in the background?
