I am trying to understand how the Thumbnail cache works. Do PS3 Media Server rely on the scan that I do in Windows Media Player to access thumbnails. Not sure how I get my thumbnails to reside in cache for PMS uses it. I have checked "Enable Cache", "Image Thumbnails", "Use Mplayer for video thumbnails", and "Generate thumbnails". Should all of these be checked? What is Mplayer?
I have reset the cache and restarted. When I go to my pictures directory (which has over 100 directories) and I drill down to a director that has 80 pictures in it, I have to wait for PMS to draw each and evey thumbnail. Not sure why it doesn't use what is in the cache instead of going thru this every time. I'm sure I have a setting wrong. Once I clear the cache do I have to go to my PS3 and individually open up each and every directory on my PS3 so it rebuilds the cache?
If anyone can help I would really appreciate it!!
