    Hi.
    Here is an example as it works for me ever since...
    First the movie folder with all files:
    Zwischenablage-5.jpg

    I hope you can read the file names...

    Then some screenshots from MP2 settings:
    Zwischenablage-2_1.jpg

    Download nothing from online...

    Zwischenablage-3_1.jpg

    Cache all fanart on the server system (speeds up things but need some disk space on the server)

    Zwischenablage-4_1.jpg

    be sure you allow at least 1 item per type of fanart.

    And the result in MP2 client:
    Zwischenablage-6.jpg


    The BlueVision Default theme did not use all of the fanart types but if the naming is as on the explorer screenshot above all types are imported by the MP2 server...

    If this did not work for you then something is wrong with your MP2 or your general setup.

    Thank you Lehmden.

    The settings are exactly like you have.

    The result is:

    Yes, it has the two continuation discs that are not named "properly", but the image files seem to be fine. But this is the same for movies with only one disc. For e.g.

    upload_2019-6-28_19-45-33.png

    upload_2019-6-28_19-45-59.png



    So, I used to have FanArt before, but now with the new database, I get nothing.

    Thanks,
    Sridhar

    You need to use the "Library View" not "Browse Media"! The folder navigation is not intended for normal usage.

    Even in "Browse Media" there should at least fanart and poster be shown as soon as you focus the video item:
    Zwischenablage-1.jpg


    That's why I create fanart and poster for "Non Movie or Series"- videos too:
    Zwischenablage-2.jpg


    Zwischenablage-3.jpg

    And that's how those files are named:
    upload_2019-6-28_16-43-28.png

    Fanart and .nfo is created by Media-Buddy excerpt for poster of first video and fanart of second video. That's why I choose those examples here...

    Yes, I have seen fanart in browse view when I put the movie in focus or navigate it using a keyboard like Lehmden says. Now, it doesn't seem to work.

    What could be going on?

    Thank you for your responses.

    I, today, reset the skin and theme to BlueVision and Titanium Extended from what it previously was, possibly Default, but maybe the same.

    Now, I see the fanart.

    Regards,
    Sridhar
