On my 2.8GHz 4-core + HWA PC, Shumway takes ~6s to init for almost any file. During this time, the entire browser freezes because Shumway is operating on the main thread.

Can someone look into having Shumway run on a separate thread (WebWorker)? Flash Player obviously does this, as it runs in a completely separate process.

We do run some things (parsing I beleive) in WebWorkers, but currently there's' no way to do any of the drawing in a Worker. This is something we really need to take care of.

Also, we have some tricks up our sleeves to make that startup time go away
or at least be much less of a problem. It's probably going to be a while
until those land, however.

@tschneidereit: can this bug be closed as a dupe of (newer but more descriptive) bug #909?


tschneidereit commented Feb 27, 2014

Yes, thanks.

Dupe of #909
