I mainly use the file browser to access an external HD which houses a ton of videos (movies/tv shows/etc.) While the built in file manager generates/loads a thumbnail of each video I would like to use my own thumbnail art. Please allow the user to associate a .jpg/.png to each video as well as folder. Under /Movies is hundreds of video files with generated thumbnails that make finding videos difficult.
/Movies/Serial_Mom_1080.jpg (user generated album art)
/TV shows/Altered Carbon/cover.jpg or anything.jpg
/TV shows/Six Feet Under/cover.jpg or anything.jpg
I have lots of folders (especially TV shows) with different seasons in them, being able to associate a thumbnail with each folder would make life that much easier.
My prior PVP (Micca) was over 10 years old technology that was able to do all of this. I also had a Boxee Box (again >10 year tech) that went a step further and would fetch album art from whatever database (think it was IMDB) load synopsis/cast/reviews etc.
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.
How to show video cover art on SmartShare on WebOS ?
I have many movies, mp4 or mkv file with cover art muxed, but SmartShare
show only a randomic picture taken from movie as preview.
I'm not on DLNA but in HDD on USB 3.0 port so not using media servers like Windows or Plex.
Where do i have to put cover arts? Side-by-side in same directory of the file with same name like: movie1.mp4 - cover1.jpg ?
Anyone successed to get cover art showing?

It's a roller coaster ride with webOS and news is scarce these days....but with the recent LG news, we've decided to rename this forum LG webOS and as such can be access by visiting lgwebos.com. All old urls will be redirected and all memberships and topics remain the same.
We'll just have to watch and see what LG decides to do with our beloved webOS!
