Tried Unset, hasn't produced a nice image yet. Maybe I'm in too much of a rush, though the other folder has had about 4 days to make one now. Oh well first world problems.

I've done it manually.

Made a stripy image manually ? Like in Photoshop or something ? Tried that ages ago, this seemed like a nice, simple, lazy way to make one. Still is if actually does it at some point.

Yeah... I used Gimp.

That's actually how this whole thread started because I wanted one for live tv.

That does sound familiar. Never got very far with DIY - spend so little time on graphic type stuff it takes me forever to do the simplest thing cos I've forgotten it all the next time I need to use it.

And now three of the ordinary images have been replaced (Documentaries, Home Videos and Photos) but it will not touch those two at the bottom.

I wonder if something has changed since they removed the option for a pure photo library? Have you tried different image file types? Maybe that new library type only pulls thumbnails from video files and not photos?

I wonder what would happen if you made a video of the pictures you want to use?

Thanks, I missed that one.

I'll have to test this at home tonight myself.

I tried it tonight with a folder that had nothing but photos.

 

It worked fine, so there must be something else going on with your situation.

Thanks very much for trying. Hasn't worked yet. Maybe I'll try downloading a fresh beta and see if that helps...

I'm using the latest stable in Docker (Linux host) if that makes a difference.

Too exotic for me, am just a windows 10 person.

Hey, did you end up producing an image? I've been trying for a few hours but nothing.

Nope. Only added a folder to make a library image. Occasionally added a few more, deleted the ones I added, added another one. Still won't. It obviously just knows what I'm trying to do and is just toying with me...

Yeah I even made a movie library and added the images I wanted as movie primary images. Still no go. Has anyone been able to create a new collection image?

Just wondering if your a Windows person, BAlGaInTl above uses that Docker thing and it seems ok for him.

 

Also in this https://emby.media/c...ng-to-generate/  thread, which you've seen, the last post #15 jaspalgill  said it worked on a Synology build but stopped when moving to a Windows 2016 Server Core.

Yes, I'm on Windows. Interestingly, it works on existing libraries. If I delete the collection image for older libraries, new dynamic posters are generated. It's just not working for new collections.

 

@Luke are you able to replicate this?

Just wondering - you added a new library with a few photos in and it made a dynamic image for it, in Windows ?

 

Can the server be made to refresh dynamic images on command - it seems make one or two whenever it feels the urge so it makes it difficult to look in the logs for a specific command (if you know of one) ?
