#142 when adding thumbnails no video plays anymore


MiniDLNA works without problem for my Samsung TV, until I add thumbnails.

When I add them, I see the thumbnails on the (samsung) TV! but... then the videos don't play anymore. It seems then minidlna serves for the video the image/jpeg mimetype!

can also confirm this using the DK Dlna DLNA client on my android smartphone: the video plays fine until I add a thumbnail. Then when clicking the video, it asks whether to open it with the gallery or image viewer and says it's image/jpeg.

Also others have seen this problem:

I found that the change i attach (against 1.0.24) fixes the problem for me.

Sadly it fixes it for the TV, not for the android software. For the android software I found that commenting completely the "video" handling of album art and keeping only the "audio" part makes it work perfectly...

    Model: Samsung DTV DMR
    Serial: 20081224DMR

    And to make it clear when I make it work for the Android client by using the code path for audio album art also for videos then I loose the thumbnails on the tv... I don't have the solution to get both to work.

    Thumbnails for video work out of the box in 1.0.24 on Samsung TV - models D6530 and D7000.

    The exact model on my TV, on which the patch is required, is le32c530f1w bought in june 2010.

    So, C530 is the important part AFAIK.

    But yes the C530 doesn't support DLNA nor network, I upgraded it to C550 model using a hotel mode hack. However I believe it now behaves a C550 would.
