    Lightbulb Tutorial: Folder artwork

    Mezzmo can collect and stream folder artwork to your devices. Many devices, such as Sony Bravia TVs and WD TV Live media players, display this folder artwork when browsing your files streamed from Mezzmo. This can make for a better browsing experience.

    You can turn on/off folder artwork collection and streaming in Mezzmo. By default, folder artwork collection and streaming is turned on.

    Folder artwork collection

    By default, Mezzmo will try to find folder artwork when you add your files into Mezzmo. Folder artwork files are often external files, such as 'folder.jpg', that are found in the folder. You can turn on/off what external files to use when collecting folder artwork.

    1. In Mezzmo, go to the Options dialog (Retrieving Metadata page).
    2. Click the Metadata Retrieval Settings button.
    3. In the Metadata Retrieval Settings dialog, go to the Folder tab.


    4. Turn off/on the folder artwork settings that you wish to use.
      Tip: If Mezzmo finds no external folder artwork files in the folder, then it can use artwork from the files contained in the folder or playlist. The Create artwork based on contents of folder/playlist checkbox turns this setting on/off.
      Tip: To stop collecting any folder artwork, then turn off all checkboxes in the Folder tab.
    5. Any changes to the above settings will be applied to new files that you add into Mezzmo or when you run Maintain Library with the Update all attributes radio button selected.
