    Default Improved: Artwork thumbnail generation for video files.

    Hi,

    I noticed this improvement in the new version and decided to test it out.

    Improved: Artwork thumbnail generation for video files.

    It seems that now the artwork is generated by looking a little further into the video file and grabbing a random screen grab.

    When is Mezzmo going to actually automatically get the correct Video artwork as it does for Music?

    I know you can do it manually if you go to Properties of each file and select Get Artwork for Internet but it really should just auto-get it to save alot of time and hassle.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Music works well in this case since music files often have metadata within them (artist name, album name, genre, year, etc.) and this lets Mezzmo go to the internet to search for the right album covers, etc. Most video files do not seem to have metadata within the file as yet, so we have not turned on the "auto get from the internet" feature as yet. And then there is the issue of different types of videos in user's collections - movies, TV shows, Youtube clips, home movies, sports recordings, music videos, etc. Some of these types of videos make no/less sense to go to the internet to retrieve artwork. We are discussing this here and hope to come up with a nice solution.
