Plugins: Cache remote (HTTP) image files
|Assignee:||Andreas Smas||% Done:|
I'm developing a plugin that use several images loaded from http. That images are loaded to the directory to make menus.
The problem is the images are always the same, but showtime is always getting them from http witch takes time.
Because of this the user have to wait to see the images and the menu is not fluid.
Could it be possible to cache http images on disk for a period of time?

Showtime will cache the images correctly based on the HTTP headers.
Even so, I think some of the HTTP servers out there just does this incorrectly.
But i'm thinking of a better way so that showtime can always use images from cache and just
reload them afterwards.
Do you have an URL to the images in question?
Just want to make sure that the current cache mechanism is not broken.

This problem is for all images i get from HTTP.
