    XMPP/Jabber - show inline pictures (file transfer)

    Hey :-)


    after using Miranda very intensively when ICQ was not "murdered" by facebook i haven used MirandaIM the last few years.

    Now i'm starting to use XMPP on our own personal servers with my colleagues. On our Android phones we use "Conversations" which is really a nice client and it is - at least for us - a better alternative to WhatsApp & Co.

    On Desktop (linux + wine) i now revived Miranda in the latest stable version. Connecting to my self hosted Jabber server works without any issues.

    Now the question:

    When we share pictures within a conversation 1to1 chat or MUC it will be directly shown by the client.

    When i send a picture from Conversation to Miranda it will just send the HTTP_Upload url and i have to open the URL in the browser which breaks the usability.

    http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0363.html is used in this case.

    Basically what i wish for Miranda is shown in this pic here:
    http://conversations.im/images/scree..._selection.jpg (see the inline auto downloaded image)

    As the addon page seems to be unavailable and i can not find a posting here which seems relating, i'd like toask whether this can be accomplished by plugin or whether someone wants to implement XEP363?

    Thanks :-)

    brs

    Hey, first of all Miranda IM is dead and you can't expect anything to be done here :-)
    I recommend moving to Miranda NG.
    And about question - it perhaps could be achieved with IEView plugin and specific template where it would transform the Http_upload url to inline <img> element.

    Thats sad to hear :(

    Hmm IEView... does it work under Linux with WINE?

    It's not that sad as Miranda NG fork is alive and much better - and all active developers moved there.

    No, it's not dead because of some decision from the project owner, but because everyone left (to NG). Rainwater is releasing new builds, but in fact they are only fixes in installer. There has been no real development as you can see from svn repository.

    I expect it doesn't. And there is no other real option right now to achieve inline images. Would be good if someone implemented e.g. WebkitView instead of IEView...
