Thread: XBMC thumbnail integration

  1. #1

    Default XBMC thumbnail integration

    Hello,

    Love the product! One of the few DLNA server apps I have found that actually works with my Samsung TV + Bluray player.

    I have a feature request: support for XBMC video thumbnails, which use the .tbn file extension.

    As it is, videos can manually be assigned a .tbn thumbnail by viewing the file properties, selecting "Change Artwork" -> "Add Picture" and then typing "*.tbn" + enter for the filename to display all of the .tbn files in a directory, selecting one and hitting okay. This will assign the thumbnail to the video and it displays correctly in the app as well as on the TV DLNA client.

    As such, I would imagine it would be a small change to allow .tbn in the list of thumbnail filetypes, as well as allowing them for automatic thumbnail detection, as the XBMC naming scheme is <video file>.tbn for <video file>.<avi/mkv>.

    Additional details on the XBMC format is here: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Thumbnails


    Cheers!

    Hello,

    Thanks for considering this feature.

    I don't know if this is the right place for this, but I have noticed a bug which relating to assigning thumbnails to videos. If you open the properties of a video file and add a picture, if you use press OK the picture is saved but if you use the next or previous file navigation (< and > buttons), a prompt is given saying that the item has been modified and asking if it should be saved, but selecting Yes does not update the picture.


    Cheers!
