How do you set the Folder picture for Videos

Post by steamhead » Fri Jan 29, 2016 9:39 am

I'm in Twonky 8.2 and trying to figure out how to set the Folder picture that gets used when browsing Video directories By Folder.

I've tried creating a folder.jpg and even Folder.jpg, but Twonky seems to want to use the picture of the first item in the directory, which isn't really what I want. Especially for things like TV shows you would want the series logo for the folder, but episode specific pictures for each file within.

Hi,

we will change the handling of album art of By Folder in the next release (8.2.1). We will then prefer folder.jpg for the container/folder and use individual album art for each file in that container if present.

Best regards,
Marco

Fantastic, I'll look forwards to that.

I'm hoping once I've got to the bottom of the tagging issue that I can move all the individual file output to be embedded inside the files themselves, so the directories aren't cluttered with a .jpg file for each .mp4 file.
