maemo.org Bugzilla – Full Text Bug Listing
|Summary:||Make searching for media (especially at startup) optional in Media Player|
|Product:||[Maemo Official Applications] Media player||Reporter:||Vladimir Oka <mail>|
|Status:||RESOLVED WONTFIX||QA Contact:||media-player-bugs|
SOFTWARE VERSION: 2.2009.51-1.203.2 EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM: 1. Put a lot of (new) media files on N900 2. Re-boot EXPECTED OUTCOME: CPU usage drops to reasonable level quickly. ACTUAL OUTCOME: CPU usage is close to 100% (or at least in 75%+ range) for a VERY long time. REPRODUCIBILITY: (always, less than 1/10, 5/10, 9/10) EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED: n/a OTHER COMMENTS: Using (h)top, it is obvious that tracker-indexer is the culprit, looking for media files and updating the index. At the very least there could be an option to only update media index manually. It's OK to have N900 re-index automatically by default (think: normal users), but it would be good if power users could have more control.
I don't know which startup script tracker is included in, but I guess that you could remove it and run it manually?

Well, I agree that it can be annoying. I've also ran into the same issue. The other side are those users complaining that their newly added stuff is not immediately visible in the Media Player (there is also at least one report around here about that). Don't get me wrong, I think the problem here is to find a good balance.
Sorry, didn't intend to sound negative towards you personally. I know you're doing a stellar, and thankless, job here. The frustration is really aimed elsewhere...
