Tv Series Thumbnails

Hi guys,

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to buy WD Live Streaming what a device!

My setup.

WD live streaming connected to Tv via HDMI.

Segate 1.5 Tb portable HD connected to WD Live.

File structure video folder with Tv series inside with seasons inside there. I.e. video/homeland/season 1/homeland s01e01.avi

So what I’ve set up so far. I’ve added a folder.jpg to each Tv program and season insidse each program. Works perfectly I can see thumbnail for each folder. 

The next thing I want to do is give each individual file the same thumbnail as the season that it belongs to. So my question is is there a quick way to do this or do I need to create a seperate .jpg for each individual episode? I have we’ll over 1000 individual tempi sides so will obviously take me forever!

Your help will be much appreciated! 


I think your post is in the wrong forum. This forum is for the 2009 model WDTV Live HD and 2010 model WDTV Live Plus.

The forum for the 2011 WDTV Live Streaming Media Player is here:

There’s a number of tools out there that will do what you want very quickly.

As of today, I have about 2,800 TV episodes – all have metadata generated by the XML Fetcher.
