Wd Tv Live (3rd Gen) Themes?!

#1

Hi,

I’m new here (first post) & I’ve had my WD TV Live Media Player for about 3 years now & I just noticed that I can add themes to it & such, I’m currently using the “Moochi” theme & that’s the only one that is available to me. I was just wondering what’s the process I’d have to go through to add some flare to my movie collection of about 1500+ films. I also add my own movie art to each film, hope that’s not an issue.

I’m also on Firmware 2.01.86. Thanks in advance & I’m willing to answer any other questions!

Virtually All Themes created by Users contain a “Guide” on how to install the Theme

example: My Theme here … Alaska Resurface [WDTV LIVE HUB & SMP]

Scroll down to the very bottom of Post 1 and you’ll find an installation guide eg. How to install a Theme {Guide}

Follow this guide for my Theme, and for all other User Themes you wish to install.

Note: you can only install one user Theme at a time. If you install a 2nd theme it will overwrite the previous user theme. The Default WD “Mochi” theme cannot be overwritten, so you don’t have to worry.

Quick question, how do you add images to your MKV files? All my files are MP4 & I add the cover art through Mp3tag

Thanks again!

External or Embedded jpg images will both work

External images require less effort … just place the jpg image next to (or in the same folder) as the media file. Works for all videos … mkv,mp4,avi,wmv etc etc

eg.

Movie Name.mkv
Movie Name.jpg

WDTV’s built-in movie info scraper (if it still works) will create a .metathumb which is just a jpg image renamed.

Movie Name.mkv
Movie Name.metathumb

Final Note: Embedded cover art jpg images take display priority over External images

eg.

Movie Name.mp4 <---- if this file has Embedded cover art the jpg image (below) will not be displayed
Movie Name.jpg
