Custom Thumbnails For Shares

For those of you with Xbmc builds post August 25th, you have the ability to have custom share icons. Doing it although, isn't very obvious. So here's what you need to do.

Just use this tag for each share:

<thumbnail>E:\xbmc\extras\tv.jpg</thumbnail>


so for example:


<bookmark>
<name>Tv</name>
<path>smb://user:pass@192.168.1.46/Tv</path>
<thumbnail>E:\xbmc\extras\tv.jpg</thumbnail>
</bookmark>


Hopefully that clears up some confustion.

  • Are there certain sizes (dimensions) that are required for the thumbnail? Now the only difficulty is finding some good thumbnails!
