[PARSEHTML]Using the ShellThumbnailing, also called thumbnail generation through WindowsApi, creates a dependency from MediaPortal.Common to <br /> - Microsoft.WindowsAPICodePack.dll and<br /> - Microsoft.WindowsAPICodePack.Shell.dll<br /> <br /> The result is that these dll files required running every MediaPortal application (i.e. ServiceMonitor) which needs the Common library (i.e. for logging).<br /> It is also not possible to get rid easily of the shell thumbnailing if a user does not want to use it.<br /> <br /> There might be additional reasons, i.e. easier replacement if there are better thumbnail generators available than using the windows API.<br /> <br /> In the first change it might not be need to implement new interface to make the thumbnailing more flexible. It should be enough to start moving the thumbnailing code into it's own plugin and create dependencies from other plugins which are using this code.[/PARSEHTML]

MP1 MP2 MP2 DLNA status? DE
What I meant is that we have a MP2 plugin called UPnP Render that can play media from DLNA servers if I remember correctly. I don't know the current state of the plugin though. That's why MP2 probably never will be certified. ;) Yes, that was also the idea, but it is a big job as all TV's, software etc. seems to not do everything...

It's very strange, but you can see that it happens. The logic of NSIS is a complete mystery. :)

I've marked it as "Fixed" since the original crash issue is resolved. It would be intersting to know if the other behavior that you now describe is dependent on the skin. Is it behaving the same way if you use a BlueVision theme, e.g. TitanExtended? @ge2301, can you confirm the behavior? is this a skin problem or something general?
