tiff images - web preview fails

Question asked by mr.g.c. on Feb 4, 2009
Hi,
should the web previewer in Alfresco Share (3 Stable) work for tiff images ?

In our test, when we upload a tiff we see the thumbnail in document library but when we go the document detail, the web preview fails with a message "the preview cannot be loaded from server".

Is it anything related to configuration of  mime-types ? From a quick code inspection, it looks all types image/something should be processed directly by the flash code,
while other types such as .doc go through intermediate generation of a swf content.

Anybody tried ?
Thanks in advance for the help

p.s. If I remember well (not really sure …), web preview for tiff worked (although not perfectly)  in earlier versions …
