When installing the Roku Thumbnails plugin it says that you should exclude libraries if you do not want or need thumbnails for them in order to save time and space. However I can find no way to do that. It seems that all my video libraries will, eventually, get thumbnails generated.

 

While I have plenty of space and I can wait the days it will take to get all my libraries done there are several that I would like to exclude if it is possible. For me I only want thumbnails for movies. My large TV show library does not need them and my library of very short home videos has no need either.

 

If I could exclude those it would help tremendously in both time and space as those libraries represent almost 20 of my 30 tb library so I could save a lot if I could exclude some libraries but I cannot find a way to exclude libraries or folders.

 

Any help is much appreciated.

There's not currently a way, but it's possible for the future. Thanks.

You might want to change the installation dialog that advises to configure it to avoid libraries. That is a bit confusing if it is not possible.

We'll look at that. Thanks for the feedback.
