    I have .png format images that I used as thumbnails when using PMS to stream content to my PS3, like this:

    But I've made the change to MediaTomb.

    Is there a way to use these images as video thumbnails on MediaTomb?

    You don't need video thumbnails to display static images as thumbnails.
    All you need is a very small shell script and to name the images the same as the files.

    If someone else doesn't respond first, I'll go pull it up and post it.

    Thank you. I'm quite new to scripting/coding, so i appreciate everything that helps make the transition smoother.

    Is there anywhere to find pre-made scripts for things like this?

    Sorry for the delay.  The 11 year old processor in my media server bit it so I'm offline right now.  (encrypted drives too).  I got the script itself unencrypted in backups but my cooresponding config.xml isn't in there with it.   I'll post again when I get both together.

    Thank you!  Was starting to think it was a lost cause. :D
