PS3 Video Thumbnails

    I'm not sure if this is possible or not, but I've seen shots of PS3s connected to other UPnP media servers other than MediaTomb and some of them display a thumbnail of the video (or others show cover art for a movie/TV show) in the PS3 list. Is this possible with MediaTomb? I'd like to have a screenshot (likely created on-the-fly by ffmpeg, I'd imagine) of my video files, any ideas how I could do this?

    Thanks :)

      Either compile latest SVN code with ffmpegthumbnailer support (you'll also need to enable it in the config.xml then, I suggest that you let the 0.12 version write a new config.xml so you can see the new options), or use a transcoding script as a workaround, you will find a thread on how to do that in the forums.

      Kind regards,
