N97 Review Day 10 and 11 - Pixelpipe and Share Online woes continue

Submitted by Roland on Tue, 2009-07-14 10:46

Pixelpipe has been very responsive for tech support via twitter and comments on this blog (thanks! i have done technical support in the past and appreciate the speedy service!) but unfortunately I am still having problems

I. Routing Tags not working

Summary: routing tags are not working, if i tag something "@f" without the quotes in the title or tags field or the body, it incorrectly gets posted to flickr.com/photos/roland instead of flickr.com/photos/wongtanglao

Here are the answers to the questions asked by Pixelpipe support:

  1. pixelpipe support: "Try uploading to the 2nd account directly from Quick Post to verify it's been configured, if the upload goes to the 1st account log out of Flickr and add the 2nd account again."
    • Roland's response: I deleted "wongtanglao" which is the second account in pixelpipe and re-added it and then did a quick post from the web app i.e. firefox on my mac  to "wongtanglao" and it worked fine i.e. it went to the 2nd account which is wongtanglao!
  2. pixelpipe support: "Are you using Share Online 4.30 (beta)? The latest version supports resume, background uploads and even has an Outbox which includes a status of your uploads."
    • Roland's response: I am using Share Online ver 4.3.09.19 S60 Version 5.0 (which I believe was installed when I updated my N97 to the V11 firmware which came out on July 1, 2009)

Herewith screenshots of my pixelpipe config:

II. Photos not uploaded to flickr from Share online and pixelpipe

I seem to have found a bug in the share online/pixelpipe combo

Thee following two photos were uploaded to pixelpipe but never made it to flickr, could pixelpipe support please look into this?

III. Suggestions for Share Online and Pixelpipe for improvement

  1. implement a global upload status indicator (i.e. an icon that shows up and has two states: upload pending, and upload complete) for photos in the gallery app (which seems to be called "Photos" on the N97) like Shozu, otherwise if you take more than 30 photos in a day (which I do daily) it becomes impossible to track which photos you have uploaded and which you have not. The outbox doesn't work well.

I. Routing Tags not working

If you can reproduce this could you please email me the /item link for the problem post. I can see the routing decision made for an object so a pointer to a specific example would help me resolve it.

From looking at your delivery history, I see a lot of images delivered to the 'WongTanglao Photos' pipe. Which is pointing at http://www.flickr.com/photos/58225798@N00/ which is described on Flickr as "Wongtanglao's photostream"

II. Photos not uploaded to flickr from Share online and pixelpipe I seem to have found a bug in the share online/pixelpipe combo.

Those /item links have images with grey bars in them. They probably don't show on flickr because they encounter an error processing them. Can you reproduce the problem by uploading the same image? If so, I would like to enable some debugging for your account so that I can capture the bad input and run it through our tests.

Here is another reference to N97 grey bars not involving us at: http://tr.im/ruNg

Could you try retrieving the image from the phone via some other method than Share Online to see if it might be an issue with the original image?

Thank you for the detailed comments, Tracy

Here's what Roland did in response to Tracy: (btw those images that worked to wongtanglao worked only because I temporarily set the default to wongtanglao NOT because routing tags worked)

  1. Took a picture named "19073009539"
  2. Changed name to "@f 19073009539"
  3. From My N97 uploaded it to pixelpipe via the N97 Photos application

What I expected:

  1. Photo would be routed to wongtanglao flickr account

What happened:

  1. Photo gets routed to default account, which is my flickr account, roland
