Re: Custom pictures for video files

Interesting question.

So youre suggesting to make the icon more useful by displaying a

snapshot of whatever the Movie or Video is.

I think thats an excellent Feature request.

I made it for you HERE.

Re: Custom pictures for video files

That's usually the job of the server streaming the video. Of course, if you're playing them from a USB drive, there is no server. But I believe that RMP will recognize a JPG image that is named to match the video and use that for the icon. But the image file and media file names must be identical.

Well I dont know if it will fly but if the software could somehow take a snippet

from the video it would certainly be more appealing than the mundane Icons

it gets defaulted to.
