ConnectShare Movie Library Icons

by 38caveman599 / March 26, 2015 9:45 PM PDT

I have a HD full of movies in mkv format that work very well on my TV using ConnectShare Movie.
I would like to include in my USB HD library an icon for each film that will show on the media player as I sift through it.
On Western Digital players for example all you do is include a file eg. Gladiator.jpg with the parent directory and it works. Alas this is not the case with this software.
Is there a way to do it. Thanks.

Not Smart TV

You must remember my TV is not Smart TV and as such does not have access to internet and cannot add icon to the films. It has to be done manually but be accepted by the ConnectShare software like other media players eg. WD Live accept .jpg thumbnails from third party software thumbnail maker.
