hi all! sorry but I am fairly new to linux world and recently purchased myself a raspberry pi modem B. After following the tutorial at http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=16352, I was able to access the dlna through my Samsung TV, iPad and PC without any problem. Everything plays well including subtitles. However, having all my MP4s properly tagged with cover art etc… all 3 dlna players only show a simple list of files with no thumbnails.
My question thus is two prongs: Should I manually add movie.jpg for each movie file? (Have tried that in vain anyways). Also the movies are located on an external drive which is mounted as read-only. Is that why minidlna does not appear to be able to extract the covers? Or does it use the config setting of db_dir (which is on my SD) to save the covers?
Thanks for any insight.
aptitude install ffmpegthumbnailer
upload the script "makemythumbs.sh" onto your machine
set rights => chmod u+x makemythumbs.sh
execute => makemythumbs.sh /path/to/your/movies
much better is SheetMaker for linux
(will generate NFO's with all metadata and the official movie covers from imdb sites)
unfortunately minidlna doesn't support the metadata but will share the covers.
