Add MovieArt/Thumbnails To Your BD/Dvd Rips.
Something I'd been meaning to add to my standalone media streamer is one of these movie jukebox programs like YAMJ, TViXiE to add thumbnails for my dvd rips to make it look a bit prettier than just a directory structure - and without the need for the pc to be on.
So I tried out TViXiE..
"TViXiE is a GUI builder for Media Players currently supporting TViX, NMT (Popcorn Hour, etc...), Western Digital WD TV HD Player, Mede8er and Dune.
TViXiE automatically downloads movie/music information and covers and builds a graphical browsing experience for the media player."
I have a NAS with around 300 DVD/BD rips on it and a playon!HD mini 2 as my media player. So I just put each film into a separate folder, and then use TVIXIE to make thumbnails with cover-art, movie info, cast info, ratings etc for each film.
It took me about 2 hours to complete this for ~300 dvd/bd rips, (most of that time taken up creating a separate directory for each film), is dead simple to do, and the results are well worth it.
