Hi,

 

Could scraping mkv's for cover_land.(jpg/png) for thumbnails be added, and used as a higher priority than cover.(jpg/png) for thumbs... also use cover.(jpg/png) as the poster.

I am in the process of re-repping my bluray and DVD collection, and using the media cover as cover.jpg and extracting the thumb (using ffmpeg) as cover_land.jpg for the episode thumb or using fanart as the movie landscape.jpg.

Hi.  What system uses that naming convention?

+1 it'd be helpful if this functionality was added. Especially since it's a part of the matroska spec.

I don’t think it would take too much time/effort to implement either.

I’m guessing it would also cut down on library scan times too, as it would only have to probe the container for the embedded image, rather than having to invoke the screengrabber or downloaders.

There are a lot of interesting and useful features in the matroska spec. A lot of them don’t get used though, which is a shame.

Well we don't extract two images, only one.

That's the point of this FR, to implement the extracting of the second image.
