Sorry to be a broken record, but I'm not sure if you saw my last post in the last thread. Also, pictures.
XB1 still has half rendered thumbnails in this version

but adding

Code: Select all

ThumbnailBackground = black
makes it work. It looks the same with the background as without

Hmm that's weird, I'll add that line soon but I think it points to a different problem, like maybe the Xbox One doesn't like the image format for that folder image. Does it happen with any other images?

After going through a few folders, video thumbnails seem to render okay. #--TRANSCODE--# icons can break though. I think it doesn't like transparencies.

Have you tried removing the ThumbnailSize and ThumbnailBackground options and adding
SendFolderThumbnails = false
instead to the xboxs conf file?

Doing that should mean it just uses whatever the device normally uses for a default folder thumbnail. It can also help speed up folder browsing.

That does work, except #--TRANSCODE--# icons still break, so ThumbnailBackground is still needed for UMS's other icons.
It does seem the size options may be unnecessary, it's working fine without those.

Hmm okay, so maybe we should have a renderer setting to convert PNG images to JPG

Try also adding...
ForceJPGThumbnails = true
ThumbnailAsResource = true

Does that help the transcode folder?

JPG doesn't support transparencies, and GIF is very limited in colors especially when dealing with transparencies. If it went JPG, it would have to have a background anyways.

Code: Select all

ForceJPGThumbnails = true
Still gives half-renders

No custom thumbnails load at all. It's all system icons. Nothing from UMS or video file previews.
