To reduce latency, I'm looking to pre-cache images used in a Poster node. When trying to write to tmp:/ it shows the filename with a ".tmp" extension and then disappears. I assume this means the file is not downloading properly.. Any idea what the issue could be?
From my screen: (this loops every 5 seconds with a new URL)
You are doing AsyncGetToFile()... why? Try a simple GetToFile and that will likely solve your issue. (Speculation: you start async download but then your thread promptly completes, roUrlTranfer object gets disposed of - and the linked transfer is canceled. The thread will have to hang around checking for events from async xfer - or you can just use the synchronous method, that blocks till xfer is complete)
I was having issues with GetToFile() as well. I did the AsyncGetToFile as I was thinking this would move the download to the background vs. having to wait. Is this not the correct thinking? Figured out I was missing: msg = wait(0, port). Once I added this, the download was successful.
This all seems really messy to cache some images vs what "roSlideShow" used to do. I think it cached 5-6 images in advance. I'm I going about this wrong, or is there a better, more obvious way?
