I'm playing videos and photo slide shows via my Roku from my Synology NAS. Surprisingly easy for the Roku to find my Synology on my network. The problem I'm having is not all my JPG photo files are recognized by the Roku Media Player. It appears that all the JPGs coming from my old Canon digital camera and my Samsung Smart Phone (not my Samsung tablet though) play just fine. I have a Wolverine slide reader that saves the images in JPG format, however the Roku Media server doesn't recognize them. Looking at the JPG with an EXIF tool, the photos from the camera and smartphone have more underlying information. How, if at all, can I convert those JPG files to look more like the ones from the camera and/or smartphone so I can view my childhood photos (slides) through my TV/Roku?
I think I have solved my issue. I noticed that the JPGs not showing all had dimensions larger than the JPGs I was seeing via the ROKU. The JPGs that were working had dimensions of 2048 x 1536 and the JPGs I've been having issues with were all larger (like 5472 x 3648). I used GIMP and scaled the image down to a width of 2048 (height was automatically adjusted by GIMP to proportion) and the ROKU presents them just fine. I'll now have to look at my slide converting tool to see if I can set the scaling so I don't have to do extra work.
