    Unhappy Chapters don't show video thumbnails!

    Hi,

    Chapters work but only show the default Mezzmo thumbnail.

    Installed Mezzmo 2.6.1
    Ran full database update.

    Showing the video thumbnails hasn't worked for a few previous versions of Mezzmo.
    I was hoping that the latest version would fix that.

    Running Samsung Plasma D7000 with Samsung C profile.

    Cheers,

    Josip

    Josip,

    that is correct, my understanding is that Mezzmo's chapter points do not have unique thumbs or screen grabs, they all show the default one.

    You can however edit the .PRF file to customise the thumbnail for all chapters. i.e. change the default Mezzmo logo thumbnail to one of your own.

    cheers

    Yes - that's right. No thumbnails are displayed for the auto chapter points that Mezzmo auto-generates.

    I'm guessing that I would have seen the thumbnails generated by Samsung's AllShare and Mezzmo was displaying them.

    Will Mezzmo be incorporating the feature of generating thumbnails in the future?

    Thanks guys for the help.

    Cheers

    If Mezzmo finds a .MTA file in the same folder as your video files, then it will stream it instead of auto-generating chapters. That allows you to create your own .MTA files with AllShare, etc.

    Possibly - we do have it on our development list and may consider it for a future version.

    I installed Samsung AllShare to generate chapters. Mezzmo just displayed the default chapter thumbnails instead of the new generated ones made by AllShare.
    They display properly using Allshare.

    Steps I took:
    1: Removed existing mta files.
    2: Generated new mta files via AllShare.
    3: Updated Mezzmo database.

    Shouldn't Mezzmo at least display the generated chapter thumbnails made by Samsung AllShare?

    Thanks.

    Hi Josip,

    Send us a set of logs and we'll see what Mezzmo is delivering to your TV. Turn on logging (see http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread...nostic-logging) and restart your Mezzmo server. Stream the video that has the .MTA chapter file. Display the chapters on your TV and then you can stop your Mezzmo server. Zip up the logs and send them to us at support [st] conceiva [dot] com.

    Can you attach one of the MTA files that AllShare creates? i'll see if my setup sees it.

    OK, it worked fine on my LE40C650 TV. Here is what i did and it worked first time:

    1. Downloaded the ZIP file attachment, unzipped the MTA file and removed the hidden flag.
    2. Renamed to the same filename as my MKV (I have the same video file so that was lucky), but ending .MTA insted of .MKV
    so the files are:
    Batman Begins[1080p].mkv
    Batman Begins[1080p].mta <--- your file

    3. Copied MTA file into Mezzmo videos folder.
    4. Run a Maintenance, and selected Video files, Update Media Properties, Only update missing info.

    Once complete, went to the TV and it shows the thumbs for all chapters instead of the Mezzmo logo.

    I hope this helps.
