Forever? Or can this be fixed with an update? I'd really appreciate this to be addressed in a future update! This is the best program I've used and this will be the icing on the cake for me!

@shagrath

Could you lower the compression on the cover art? With 1.04 version it seems you have increased the compression ratio probably to try to speed up thumb loading but now thumbs really look bad. It's not a huge issue with flat photos of cover art but with PNGs like I did and others have modified now the quality is over-compressed and looks pretty bad.

You think you could lower the compression so the PNG thumbnails are clearer?

Thanks, lvisneau looks great. Now I am determined to get this to work.

Stryker what program did you use for ripping and what format?

I used AnyDVDHD to rip the disc to the HDD, then used Tmuxer to rip just the video and the DD 5.1 stream (my receiver doesn't handle the new sound formats).

Stryker,

Not that you want to know but just in case you didn't know, MEnconder seems to play the .m2ts files with DTS-HD MA tracks without having to do the Tmuxer step. I used it to play Devil Wears Prada which is played in french unless you use MEncoder. Could help you loose a step if your interested.

HTPC. Onkyo 636, Polk audio speakers and Klipsch sub. KHO-7 Outdoor speakers. Homeseer homecontrol over Z-wave.

I know he's swamped right now with work at his job. If you're looking for a few thumbnails to be created for you, PM me with the list and attach the template you want to use and I'll give it a shot for you...

Thanks for posting the example lvisneau, I think it looks great.

I have had a play around with using the horizontal covers from TMDb and they look pretty good as well.

Unfortunately for me, viewing streaming movies from my '08 MacBook Pro over my wireless network was not up to the task and I can't go wired. SO I'm back to connecting my WD MyBook 1TB Drive directly to the PS3 for a more speedy yet less elegant solution!

Would have been wonderful if movie artwork could be viewed from an external hdd as well. I can still dream.

On a tangent, to improve the WAF of my setup-up. I have actually dumped Meta Data into the file name which the PS3 happily scrolls through. This has helped my wife know what the movie is about and reminds me what's in SD or HD. For example, before hand my movie file name would just give the film's name:

The Longest Day

after dumping info into the filename it looks like this:

The Longest Day [SD] WAR - The events of D-Day, told on a grand scale from both the Allied and German points of view (1962)

The PS3 automatically scrolls through long file names at a nice pace (a nice touch) and it helps viewers with what the film is about. Just thought I would share my little solution to the lack of meta data support.

Just posted 60 new cover icons for both 720p and 1080p on Flickr.

You may use the Flickr search function to find a cover for a movie you have (within the group)

Anybody know if my account on Flickr may be banner for this sort of copyrighted content?

Not sure if this has been discussed before or not (couldn't find any information on it), but how does one:
  1. Use a thumbnail for a folder (say I have "D:/TV Shows/The Office/s04e03.mkv"...I would want the folder titled The Office to have a thumbnail. Is this possible?)
  2. Create a thumbnail for a Video_TS folder. I'm still trying to figure out a way to rip my DVDs without having to encode/compress it into a .avi or .mkv or XviD file just to have a thumbnail.

Chacolla,

1. Unfortunately, I believe folder thumbnails are not supported (I think this is a PS3 limitation) - I ended up putting all my movies sorted by genre in one folder and putting thumbnails into the cover folder (new PS3 media server allows you to specify both one central covers directory and one subtitles directory) - and if you name the thumbnail "s04e03.png" it will appear as a thumb for "s04e03.mkv" (this works now - no need to name it "s04e03.mkv.cover.png")

2. This I don't have experience with.

Good Luck.

I know the last post for this was a while ago, However after spending some time generating thumbnails for all my video files, being able to create a thumbnail for "Movie" "TV" etc. folders would be awesome. Please please please include this in the next update

Also is it possible to add an additional image to splash up on screen behind the selected video file like XBMC? The same as how a highlighted game will display a splash? XBMC use "-fanart" saved with video file and thumbnail in the folder to do this.
