Thnx for the reply, but I think was not able to get the point...
I already added pics of performers, I'm just wondering, why they're only shown if I use the search function, and not in the media library in the UI if I choose to sort by performer...
sorry i misunderstood you then. how are you adding the pictures? via the media browser? and what UI are you using?
I have noticed that sometimes multiple covers can lead to only the 1st one being shown
Hunt for Red October - Has its own pic associated to the file, which grandfathers in all the things related to it in the DB.
James Earl Jones, Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin - All show the coverart for Hunt for Red October UNLESS I
-log into the webadmin, and go to the 'media browser' and find say James Earl Jones.
-delete the associated pictures (there may be more than one as in my case he plays darth vader in another flick you may have heard of)
-Add the one I want (i.e. a headshot)
Now, when i browse by performer, I see james earl jones headshot instead of the cover for Red October. Its still in there dont worry though. The image is still associated with the movie title.
*note* it seems that by deleting the box art from performer picture will remove it for all performers associated with that particular file.
OR (just did this while i was typing the post)
If the performer associated with the program you are watching, you have the option in UI2
to take a screenshot and you can set it to the selected performer.
Just tried this with Ghost in the shell and it worked. Didn't have to futz around in the backend to add it.
hope i answered this time
