I have a small issue to do with ICONS (Movie Cover) of movies and my WDTV Live. Now I am not saying it’s the fault of the anyone devices, but they are reacting differently when it comes down to this.
DS106 is UPnP enabled.
DS410j is UPnP/DLNA enabled.
In the folder in question, the following files are in there.
DS106 via the network share option of the WDTV Live, I see one icon representing the movie and when I click on it, the movie plays. I don’t see anything else. Excellent
With the DS410J when I go into the same folder see I four icons.
movie.mkv (But with the image of the movie representing it e.g. movie name.jpg)
What I am trying to fathom, is whether the DS106 is presenting the data correctly, or the DS410j via the network share connection.
Now to throw something further into the mix. If I use the media streamer option on the WDTV Live and navigate down to the folder in question, I merely see a generic icon and not even a movie cover. The mkv plays fine, but it lacks that movie jukebox feel I am looking for.
I am try to work out what I need to do to have movie covers via all views.
Now when I was originally working out what jpgs I needed I was using the DS106 as my test bed. So the folder.jpg handled the folder views within the WDTV Live and the movie name.jpg handled the ALL Video view. This even worked over the network share. So movie covers all round, so I was happy.
When I added the DS410J into the mix, which has DLNA support, it didn’t quite work out as well. To be honest I am looking for guidance.
I would be very disappointed if the WDTV Live needs lots of different icons for each view.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
