Playlist search in Qt5 is really slow on huge playlists
I've got a playlist with just under 150 thousand entries. In Qt5, each keystroke in the Ctrl+F box freezes the UI for several seconds until the results are whittled down to about 10k or less.
In GTK2 the search is instant, which I can understand for the plain UI (it only does a one-at-a-time search, not the same thing) but it's just as fast in the winamp UI too.
#2 Updated by John Lindgren over 2 years ago
- % Done changed from 0 to 100
- Target version set to 3.10.1
- Status changed from New to Closed
- Category set to plugins/qtui
This change makes a huge improvement (nearly 10x) for me with a playlist of 50,000 entries:
I think that's about as good as it's going to get, so I'll go ahead and close this. If it still seems slow to you, and you have a suggestion for improving it further, I'd be interested.
