Cover Art help for my Video files (WD Sharespace NAS to PS3)

Postby rik_t » Thu May 05, 2011 2:32 pm

Hi,

I would like to add cover art to all my media files I currently stream from my WD Sharespace NAS to my PS3. From what I understand the NAS uses Twonky Media?

I have attempted to create files like:

film.vob
film.vob.cover.jpg

But I am having no luck at the moment. I have all kinds of video files (vob,mp4,mkv) Please can someone assist me on achieving this?

Thanks

If you're running TwonkyServer 6.0 or higher, just drag your video cover art into the same folder where you have your videos. Make sure the two files have exactly the same name -- except for the .jpg file extension.

You'll have to wait until WD upgrades to TS 6.0 or look into software that inserts thumbnails into your video files. This works with some formats like MP4 and WMV. Not sure if it works with others.
