Do we really need to support old style LZW codes?

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by ami_stuff

We need at least reject files like this, though support would be nice.

comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by cehoyos

  • Component changed from undetermined to avcodec
  • Keywords tif added
  • Reproduced by developer set
  • Status changed from new to open
  • Version changed from unspecified to git-master

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by compn

i'm curious why we support any of these old weird image formats. are we going to overtake imagemagick? :)

comment:5 Changed 5 years ago by ami_stuff

Well, I like bug free/full feaured software. Since FFmpeg already supports weird image formats I see no reason why it shouldn't decode them correctly (or at leaast not try to incorrectly decode files with features which are not supported).
