In previous articles, I've explained how to install fun_plug extension script and TwonkyMedia server 7 on a DNS-323.
This article will explain how to configure TwonkyMedia server 7 to fully use an existing XBMC movies thumbnail database to generate its own video thumbnails.
In fact, if you are already using your DNS-323 thru a samba share to serve movies to some XBMC clients (Windows or Linux), you probably have already some .tbn thumbnails associated with all your movies and all your subdirectories. XBMC thumbnails with .tbn extension are simply jpeg files renamed with this specific extension.
This article will explain how to setup TwonkyMedia server environment to use these .tbn thumbnails to supply TwonkyMedia video thumbnail mecanism. Is has been tested sucessfully on a LG DLNA connected TV.
As a pre-requisite, you must have installed TwonkyMedia server and its dependencies following DNS 323 - Fun_plug 0.5 : Install Twonkymedia Server 7.
