Thumbnail problem

  • Anonymous - 2011-09-20


    I have installed v1.0.21 successfully but it does not appear to be creating thumbnails for any photos.
    It is finding and storing Music thumbnails in art_cache but not for Photos (jpg).

    I cannot see any entries in minidlna.log that indicate an issue with creating thumbnails and libjpeg is installed.
    Can anyone help troubleshooting this issue as my dlna set-up would be complete if it would show thumbnails for my images.

    We don't actually create thumbnails for JPEG images.  We only use embedded JPEG thumbnails.  What kind of image files are these?  AFAIK all remotely recent digital cameras embed thumbnails.

    Thank you - that helps.  So far the only image directories that I am scanning are images that I have edited in Photoshop….maybe the thumbnail is getting stripped out by photoshop.  The images are all jpgs but I will try with some ones straight from the camera.

    Thank you
