Help - Video thumb images not appearing on webOS 2.2 over DLNA

Question

I have the following setup:

 

LG 55EF950V television which is running webOS 2.2.0-1317 (this should be the latest version of the OS).

 

I have a number of video files on my Synology DiskStation DS413 NAS which I connect to with the TV over DLNA (on the TV this is Smart Share -> Devices -> (NAS))

 

I can see all the video files and play them etc., however when viewing the list of files I dont see any thumb images even though I have a JPEG image for each file.  For example: "My Video.mkv" has a thumb call "My Video.jpg".  For collections I put a "cover.jpg" image in the directory (this doesnt work either on the LG TV).

 

Has anyone else out there managed to get a webOS 2 TV to show video thumb nail images for videos over DLNA?

 

 

BTW: this all works when I use a Samsung TV so I dont think it has anything to do with the way the Synology DiskStation DS413 NAS is setup.

You don't miss much.  The thumb image is VERY bad on the LG.  It's VERY pixelated.

I'd still like to get something rather than nothing :-)

 

Can you supply details of what you were using? the NAS? Image details? were they JPEG? what resolution etc?

 

Thanks.

I try to attach a picture to show you here but it doesn't let me...

 

I don't use NAS.  I use Serviio running on my PC.  The software is free and I already have a PC.  It's much cheaper than go by a NAS.  You can easily add more hard drive to PC if needed where NAS is only limited to the space.  You don't need a powerful PC neither.  Setting up is very straight forward.  You just add the folders where your media files are.  From the TV, under SmartShare, Device, you will see Serviio and drill down to your contents...

      Hail, i'm web programmer and buy new LGsmart TV about week ago but after searching on internet i cant find any recommended directory structure for Movie,Music or Picture that on my TV shows the Covert of Music/Album or Movie Poster.
      I use picard music tagger that save inside the album `cover.jpg` of music album art. but seems be LG web os dosnt show it. How can i show the cover of album music instead of default folder Icon in smartshare part.

      I got same question about movie. contain movie poster.
       
      After all LG or any devices must have Linux clients for smartshare .. i use minidlna and lg must support this tiny usefull app to help us to connect lg smart devices like TV.
       
      After all WebOs is also linux based os. we need somthing like windows or mac software on most popular distros like Ubuntu.

      Hi All,
       
      I recently bought a LG Smart TV with WebOS (42LB6500) and would like to connect to my external hard disk connected over network. Here is how my home network and devices are setup.
       
      I have a high speed broadband that comes to my WiFi router (D-Link DSL 2750U) with USB support for External HDD. I have connected my Seagate Ex.HDD to this router and I am able to access the drive over WiFi on my smartphone and computer using the network path \\192.168.1.1\... Once connected I am able to use it similar to any mount location, i.e., read/write files, play media, etc., I want to do similarly with my TV, I would like to use this connected Ex. HDD as any other location and would like to achieve following two things at the least without any additional hardware Play media files on this HDD (very very important) Use the HDD as recording device for timeshift/live pause feature (important)  
      Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Regards,
      Rukmaj

      How to change audio language?
      I Was watching a film. (Mkv)
      I stopped playback.
      Tv said there is firmware update. I updated to firmware 04.30.09.
      Later i wanted to continue the film, but the audio language changed to english. I can not switch It back to to original. The audio icon in the menu is inactive (like It was always).
      Im playing the film through Dlna from my NAS.
      Any ideas, how to Change language?

      It would be super handy to have the ability to create a bookmark (a tab on the home menu) to make it easy to return to any location on a DLNA server. It has taken weeks to discover the folder browsing option hidden in Smart Share, but it still requires drilling down through the nested folders to get to the good stuff. A bookmarking feature once you're in a folder would be awesome.

      Hi LG, your Web OS is really well built, but there are a few essential features lacking.
      Such as:
       
      - Folder filtering in the SmartShare App (We all need this ASAP, the navigation is a nightmare!).
      - Audio stream selection within video files in the SmartShare App.
      - A PLEX App the collaborates nicely with the PLEX Client.
       
      - Faster start up times. From when you power on the TV to being able to quickly access the home menu and change the Volume, channel, etc.
        If you have to just offer an option to put the TV into a low power state/sleep (for as long as the user wishes) so you can resume quick menu navigation almost straight away.
        (and unlike Sony don't make it so after a few hours of the TV being asleep it fully powers down. (THIS IS NOT USEFULL, and is the reason I took my Sony TV back to JB HI-FI
        And bought yours).
        You could call this feature "PowerAct", or "instant on" it would make 'Life Good' and easier
       
      - Auto backlight brightness? I have the Australian LB 6500 and I can't seem to find a Auto-Backlight/dimming feature anywhere, and seeing as I use it in my room, when the lights are off 
        I want it to dim so I don't go blind. I don't know if you've implemented a Ambient light sensor or not, but for $1,800 I would think you should have.
       
      - If you would Like anymore Feedback/Suggestions, Feature requests or ideas from me then just PM me or write on this thread
       
      Thank you LG, and thank you for being one of the very few 'Innovative' companies around today.
