Not create thumbnails for photo & images on NAS Synology x86

Serviio v1.2 installed on NAS Synology DS713+ and used with TV Samsung.
There is no problem with video thumbnails, but Serviio not create thumbnails for pictures and images :( This is strange...

VIDEO: Image PHOTO: Image

...and also do not see album art when playing music on TV.
O, completely forgot! When playing a video on Samsung TV does not work fast forward and rewind ("<<" & ">>") arrows, TV says "Not available". (Time search and forward/back (jump 10sec) arrows working fine)

So, I have to use 3 media servers: 1.Serviio for video; 2.Synology Media Server for Photos & Images; 3...and MiniDLNA when played music. I think, this is some kind of joke of programmers, yes? ;)

Thank you for your efforts to make my Synology NAS better. And sorry for my English.

P.S: And terribly uncomfortable without integrated management console. Not a specialist in computers is impossible to understand how your program works after install. Imagine to yourself, with great difficulty you install Serviio, try to use Web UI, but all you see is "Sign in to Serviio" and "...check your password", but you don't know the password and don't set it, so that mean for you: "Иди на хуй, лох!". I realize, that writing this console laziness, especially as there is the remote console for Windows, but I think it is very important user-friendly interface. For example, I spent two nights and read tons of waste paper, which you call the FAQ to get it to work ... And I just wanted to watch a movie. Sorry.

Maybe if you read this first, you will know how to set the password: http://www.serviio.org/component/conten ... diabrowser

For the other things, I'm feeling too lazy to answer them - probably because of you attitude. Thanks for stopping by.

Re: Not create thumbnails for photo & images on NAS Synology

No offense, It's not my attitude, this is google translator speaking with you :D English is not my native language.
I like Serviio, and would only say that it's very hard for non-specialists to understand in a heap of technical terms to make it work. Maybe with time you make it more user-friendly. Serviio works great with video, very fast and have some good features like restart playing video from the point it was stopped (it's very cool!), beautiful and very fast thumbs, and so on... When i installed it, i hopped to remove another media servers, and leave only Serviio, but... here again the problem with these damn photo thumbnails.

As if there was not, I do not ask to help me right now to fix these thumbnails, I doubt that I can get them, even if you dictate to me on the phone where to find them. Just take note, as the creator of the program, there is a little problem. Once again, sorry.

P.S: If in Pro version you add a built-in remote console, fix a bug whit photo thumbnails, add displaying music album art, make the ability to simply upgrade without the need to read endless FAQs, download Java or anything else and make intuitive-oriented management, I am ready to buy license... I am sure that your program has an all chances to become a paid, for those users, who don't want to waste time learning computer ;)

Re: Not create thumbnails for photo & images on NAS Synology

On the metadata tab (Images), did you enable thumbnails for local Image files?

Re: Not create thumbnails for photo & images on NAS Synology

Wow! It starts making thumbnails, so easy... :shock: Thanks, Zip, you are a genius! I taken back my words about bug :D

O! What about not working fast forward (>>) and rewind (<<) TV buttons, maybe it's so easy? Or maybe it's a problem with TV DLNA compatibility? TV says "Not available", but if press on this buttons long (~5sec) player skips to the next or previous file in the folder. (TVs Samsung PS51E800 and UE40ES6100)

And with displaying music album art built-in in mp3 and aac files (using iTunes), can you add this feature in metadata audio tab, like as a way to take album art?

And remote console!!! :D If there was a native built-in remote console, half of the stupid questions in this forum would not be. I guarantee it! ;) And I'm sure the program code of the console you have already written, because in Windows it works fine, as I can see, maybe you just screw it to the spk-packet for Synology? Or it's much more complicated than I think?

These buttons don't work on DLNA. Try > and < buttons (hold them).

It should work. Do you see them in MediaBrowser?

The NAS package is unofficial, I don't maintain it, neither I develop any of the 3rd party consoles.

If press and hold > or < it starts to jump faster... Well, It is not very important.

YES! Now I can see albums art in MediaBrowser, and more than that, now I see them on both TVs and with a brilliant quality! I swear, they were not there when i just installed Serviio, only dark squares! Sorry, Petr, I do not understand what is going on :?

It's a pity. Maybe you can offer this option for those who maintain packages or make a separate package of the remote console for NASs? It is much much easier to communicate with the program for users like me ;-)

Petr, thank you very much for your attention and patience!

P.S: O! Can you add to the Windows remote console the function to automatically search the Serviio server, if the local server is not found? So that the remote console does not exit with an error, but offer to search Serviio server IP or enter it manually?
