Hi All, I've created a thumb creater for CBR,CBZ and PDF files. Launch the program and click start then browse to the folder with your CBR,CBZ or PDFs and a new thumb for each file will be created from the cover. Such as filename-poster.jpg. When you refresh your library Ember will see these new thumbs. Its nice to have covers in Emby for Comics and PDFs! It makes magazines much nicer to browse! I take no responsibility at all if this damages your computer or deletes your files or any thing other bad! Please take a small few files and place them in a test folder first to try it out! Also the search is recursive so it will dig down to sub folders from the root! That being said let me know if anyone finds this useful or what bugs you come up against or any code suggestions! I wrote this for myself and figured I might as well share it in case anyone else finds it useful. Do what you want with the source code. It might be useful for the Emby Bookshelf plugin. Cheers!

Is Emby only able to read epub or is it capable of reading .cbr and .cbz formats? I have a very large collection of comics courtesy of Mylarr and Emby is seeing that I have files there as well as pull the metadata for the content but I am unable to view any of the content. I know epubs and .cbr's are not a major concern for devs, but I am trying to move away from Plex (due to lack of plugin support as well as the recent WB merger) and in favor of Emby for ALL of my media needs, games (which I'm having no luck so far), movies, tv shows, music as well as ebooks and comics.
