Video thumbnails with WD My Book Live and Samsung TV

Hi all,

I have posted the message below on the Twonky forum, but it might be as well a My Book Live issue.

Any help would be very much appreciated.



Hi all,

My configuration is a WD My Book Live and a Samsung TV UE40D6200.

My Twonky version is 6.0.34, installed on the My Book Live following this tutorial: … d-p/119792

Twonky 6.0.34 fixed major issues (MKV and SRT), however I still cannot see the JPG thumbnails for my videos.
The files are named using the format: “video.avi” / “video.jpg” and are in the same folder, however when browsing the files with the Samsung TV, only the grey video camera icon appears. Same thing using the “folder.jpg” approach.

However, if I use Twonky 6.0.34 installed on my Windows 7 PC instead of the My Book Live, the thumbnails are displayed correctly when browing video files on the TV.

I am wondering if anyone had the same issue and figured how to solve this.

I would appreciate any help



That tutorail is not official, I don’t think you’ll be able to get a lot of help in here… Try on the board with that tutorial.

I finally figured what’s wrong with the Twonky NAS versions that prevents to display the cover thumbnails associated with videos (“video.avi”/“video.jpg”) This seems to be an issue for a lot of people around here and no effective solution can be found on the web, therefore I thought that I should share my solution with you:
