    Re: Thumbnail - and ONE CLICK PLAY ...?

    Maybe this helps a bit:
    In My Videos use the "Switch View" and select "Title View". This shows all your films, no matter where they are located on your harddisk. But it is required that you have put them in the database by querying IMDB information with F3.

    Hi Sam,

    thanks for the tip. :)

    I tried the program, but the actual release is not able to track subfolders. Call me lazy, but I hoped to find a prog that is a little more comfortable :(

    Other Tips?

    Can I somehow get the thumbnails bigger in size? I would like to use thumbnails as video cover art, but the thumbnails are so small you can't see what movie they represent. Some time ago I played around with myHTPC and I recall the meny (movie folder content) could be presented as big cover icons. Is this possible with MP, maybe I'm missing some settings?

    Nevermind..heh...you could just click on the showsettings in MP. Just found it :)

    Tried and loved it! it's a bit slow and not a 100% stable, but it works pretty well! :)

    It scanned my entire music collection (+8000 tracks) and I've started to add art now... :)

    Question

    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know if it's possible to configure MP to recognize a .bmp file instead of .jpg for the thumbnail image?

    Thanks!!

    Hello,

    First I would like to thanks all devloper of such a great application. Thanks for your time and you very hard work.

    I have exactly the same problems as ravy37170.

    Let me explain. All MP3 file in my Music folder have a .tbn file (work also with .jpg) in this case, all song show is thumbnail image. But if I put a folder.jpg in the folder, all song have the thumbnail image folder.jpg.

    When a folder.jpg file is present, he take priority of the song tbn file.

    Is that a bug, or a wrong manipulation?

    Thanks a lot.

    I'm just browsing these forums since I'm planning on building a PC and adding Media Portal.

    Interesting stuff...it's exactly the same for the XBMC. Except we can also change program icons by putting a .jpg renamed "default.tbn" in a specific programs folder.

    Thumbnails size

    Hi guys,

    Thank you for support. Just moved from version 0.2.0.4 to 0.2.1.0. Like very much.

    But one issue: I used the images 800x600 for the thumbnails of my kids movies that they can select a movie through a picture(View:Filmstrip). All my images are the wallpapers 800x600, because it really easy to find on the net. But looks like the version 0.2.1.0 is changed to other size, something like a vertical one(I guess 600x800) and now its look ugly

    Is it possible to change thumbnails size back to 800x600 otherwise I have to go from the begining and I don't want to do it.

    many thanks
