    Default Folder Thumbnails for Video?

    Is there a way to display a picture for a folder? It would make it so much easier for the kids to navigate.
    I see someone got this to work for a Sony TV: http://ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=56.
    I wonder if my Samsung B750 supports that.

    Where do you see this on a todo list? I see them working on how to add thumbnails to files with <movename>.jpg or folder.jpg but nothing for the folder itself. The lack of this feature makes it very hard for most of my household to use it (kids + grandparents).

    It's being investigated, but even if it's implemented by Mezzmo, unless the device supports this feature, it won't work and from what I saw, not that many devices will actually show a custom picture for the folder (at least not many older devices will).

    Mezzmo Android: Install it on your tablet, smartphone, Android TV or Amazon Fire to browse and stream files from your Mezzmo library to all your devices. Full details at http://www.conceiva.com/products/mez...mo_android.asp
    Mezzmo for Kodi Add-on: Install it into Kodi to stream files from your Mezzmo library directly in Kodi. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...odi_user_guide
    Mezzmo for Roku App: Install it onto your Roku to stream files from your Mezzmo library. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...oku_user_guide
