Media pictures

Introduction

Pluto media pictures are the picture files associated to media files (mp3, mov, dvd). There are three ways to associate a picture to a media file:

1. Use pluto-admin, Files & Media > Media Files Sync a choose a media file. You can upload a picture and associate it with a media file or choose an attribute of one or more media files and set a picture file for it/them.

2. When you rip a dvd, using CDDB, the coverart of the dvd is automatically downloaded and associated with the stored dvd file. Same thing when you only play a dvd.

3. Use UpdateMedia daemon which indexes the media files for the media folders and eventually downloads the image for a mp3 or any file which has id3 tags.

The media pictures are stored on /home/mediapics.
