Plex thumbnails not updating


08-Jul-2017 10:26

How do i check if the thumbnails are being made at all? While hugely impressed overall, my 4 year old son keeps asking where are the pictures for the videos. So like the first message, how to get some sort of video thumbnail to show using video station and media server using a DLNA client?

Perhaps we should send kids to the testing lab :-}cheers -james Bump.

If you use older apps that cannot authenticate (e.g.

I had profile "LG TV" and it thumbnails didn't work.

Sync traffic automatically scales based on streaming WAN usage, and uses whatever bandwidth is left unused (Plex Pass only).

IMPORTANT: With the security changes in version 1.1.0, if your Plex Media Server is signed in to a account, then all of the apps you use must also be signed-in.

I then added an image named "folder.jpg" into one of my movie folders, and another image named "cover.jpg" for the video thumbnail. While video station looks pretty on the PC, I can only browse file locations (no thumbnails, movie info) via a panasonic bluray. On the TV, I browse to the Disk Station select "Video" directory then I see "Video", "Music" and "Photo" directories (not sure why), select "Video" again, then I see default folder icons for Movies and TV Shows. This is the last step in getting rid of my Boxee Box that handles all of this beautifully (and marks videos as been watched - which would be also great as my database is growing)...

I do know my device (LG TV 42l55700) is capable of showing thumbnail cover art as some music files I have purchased show up on it. Thanks Same problem here I do not see video thumb on TV. Thanks I've solved my thumbnail problem with LG TV model LA660.However, you can install and use the Plex server software free as well as view the content of friends' servers for free.For me, Plex is two things: My Plex, how I see Plex servers, and my own Plex server itself.I use the former to view the content on the latter. I also use My Plex to see content on a nephew's and a son's server.
