Picture Directory Thumbs
« on: March 23, 2009, 12:22:59 am »
LinuxMCE does a great job with my Mp3's, it's pulls album art from inside the tunes and even uses it as the folder thumbnail in my Artist/Album setup.

I LOVE the missing cover art tool in the web interface, I've tried em all and no other solution would find  art for commonly worded band names such as Live, Sky and Band.

But why doesn't LMCE also create a folder thumbnails for each of my picture folders? This would be the intuitive extension to how it handles MP3s.

I'm using the LinuxMCE folder structure on a NAS device. Thanks!

This thread should be in the http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?board=350.0 section... not here.   You'll get more feedback/comment by posting the correct part of the Forum.

...auto thumbnails of picture would be a nice idea though...maybe you could investigate it, gather a few others who like the idea around you and implement it ;-)

All the best
