I am able to get video thumbnails to display by dropping DVD cover art with the appropriate naming convention into the folder as described earlier in this thread... so I know that the PS3 Media Server is generating thumbnails. I even tried to see if I could "force" music thumbnail generation by correctly naming and putting a jpeg file in the album folder but had no luck. Am I doing something wrong or is the PS3 media server not capable of generating thumbnails for Music?
it supports album art but I read somewhere there could be a bug with wma cover art detection.. maybe next version should perform better as I updated the audio application library
I can confirm that V1.04 now displays album art for music files converted to wma format. It does this at the song level by displaying the same album cover art for each song, which is fine. However, I have yet to see, or figure out how to get an album cover displayed at the folder level. This would be particular useful if your albums are sorted by Artist and you have multiple albums within a folder. You could then spot an album by its cover art. While Tversity can also display the album art at the song level, it too does not display the album art at the folder (album) level. I'm not sure if this is something that can be added to PMS, or whether it is a limitation at the PS3 level. I do know that on my PC, Windows Media Player displays Album Cover Art at the album level and Windows Explorer uses a file called folder.jpg to display the album cover art inside the traditional folder icon.
