about.jpg and folder.jpg files
« on: July 16, 2013, 02:24:15 pm »
I tried to edit about.jpg and folder.jpg files generated by DuneX in Photoshop. I save files in the same format, but Mede8er won't show it! It just shows blank screen!

Have anyone tried that? What kind of jpeg does it have to be?

I'm sure it's just being saved at a higher res in Photoshop making it incompatible with Mede8er

Try resizing to these settings:

thumbnail sized images for the folder.jpg -
the ideal size is 160 x 237 pixel and pref not larger than 75k.

The ideal size of the about.jpg is 1280 x 720 pixels.

Also refer to the user guides for more details:

Hope this helps

No, I stick to those resolutions and file sizes you just mentioned!
I just open the file generated with DuneX, edit some details and save it as it is...

It's obviously a 1280x720 jpeg, but with some kind of "catch" so that Mede8er would show it. Unfortunatelly, in DuneX you can't add a backdrop image from your HDD...

I need this because I have lots of concert videos which don't exist in IMDB or TheMovieDB  :-\

If anyone knows what is this about, please help!  :)

I'll try Thumbgen, although I'm a Mac user  ;D

In Photoshop - try "Save for Web' and use preset JPG High.

Worked on my side.
