Something has been puzzling me for some time now, so figured why not ask here and see if anyone knows how to solve it.

We keep a share to store all our pictures and video's from holidays and such and use MePo 1.20.0.
The Pictures plug-in wil automatically generate thumbnails for all of them, that get created and stored for the database "C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Thumbs\Pictures".
It will also create a thumbnail in the actual folder containing the images/videos.
Folder.jpg

However, it will do so properly for images (jpg), but not for videos (mp4, avi, mkv) and leave just a grey thumbnail in the folder.

If it can generate a thumb for the videos and store that for the database, why would it not do so for the thumb in the folder? Is this normal behaviour, or is my setup failing in some way?

Hope someone can shed a light on this for me.

    Perhaps I have misunderstood the problem, but the screen shot of your settings shows that the setting Leave a thumb in video folder is not enabled. What happens if you enable it?

    Hi CyberSimian,

    Actually, I've been fiddling with that as well, but unfortunately that doesn't change anything for the thumbnail creation for the Pictures plug-in.
    Seem to be only affecting the Videos section only. That's why I left it like that.
