Hopefully somebody can help me out here. I have a lot of family photo’s on a NAS disk which I would like to be able to show using the media player. I do see the folder structure and the several jpg files (showing a standard thumbnail). I am unable to load any of the photo’s. Trying to look for an answer but could not find it. Is there a max size for the jpg files before they show up? Or can this not be done?
maybe you just need to be patient - the media player seems to be awfully slow when it comes to photos. If you have many photos in one folder it can take really long time to show the photo you select. Have you tried with XBMC ?
Same issue. Movies stream & play OK. I can see all my Photo albums and thumbnails within. When I come to view a slide show for example, I just get the spinning loading disc. I have been VERY patient and waited for 10 minutes. I reckon that’s enough waiting.
FWIW. Windows 7 64bit, i7 920, 6GB DDR3 RAM. aTV connected via Ethernet directly to my Apple Extreme Base Station. My PC is also directly connected to the router.
I’ve got same issue. A hard drive with loads of photos that media player won’t load. I can see the files within their folders, but when I select a photo to view, a screen shot of a faded grey cinema ticket shows - not my photo!
Hi James, thanks for speedy reply. The photos were taken on my camera phone. I have an iphone 5. I’m unsure of size, but will be a little disappointed if Media player cannot handle simple camera phone photos?!
In my case nothing is helping. Recently created new folded on SMB server (windows 7) and copied 1100 photos inside (majority iPhone 6 taken). Unfortunately only some photos are loading (very slow) remaining are not loading and the “stamp” with Firecore ADMIT ONE is displayed.
Please help - how to start?
