I have all my photos from my dSLR visible on my Emby install and it appears that something is creating PNG files that are the same size as the source content.
The issue here is that the source files are typically 5472 x 3648 (Landscape) or 3648 x 5472 (Portrait).
Is there a specific reason why it's creating these files for my images? There's absolutely no better to creating in JPG format -- they're already compressed as JPG. I'd expect to see it generate downsized versions at lower resolutions, not convert 1:1 to PNG and waste disk space.
Here's some output from windirstat on my Emby server. The PNG images are eating up a solid 1/3 of my disk space right now. It's completely wasteful and the images end up taking a lot longer to transfer and decode on any end clients.
You can see in the second image that they're all named "folder.png" or "landscape.png".
