Custom Movie Thumbs & BG?

    Hi all.

    I have been playing around making my own thumbnails for the movies I am converting to MP4-AVC and getting a nice collection now.

    I was wondering if there is anyway to create the same result in the movie menu, as you do in the game menu.

    For example when a UMD game is selected in the XMB it has a full screen background image, a move /animated thumbnail, and sometimes sound in the background.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to make these myself for the movies?

    Many thanks!

    all RSS videos come like this so there is a way. i remember it being named the same as the video itself and it was a random picture type (such as JPEG or something). it needs to be a certain resolution as well. my advice would be to just download any RSS file and see how the video structure is after. oh and 3.71 (m33) has that built in so i think it takes the picture of a certain time during the video.

    You cant add any of that stuff onto mpeg4 movies, only iso movies. Only thing you can add on those movies are thumbnails.

    Thanks for helping tehjoker, and yeah I know you cannot add that information to the actualt MP4 file iteself, but the PSP does use .thm files for thumbnails, and also there is information included in EBOOT files for games to have this functionality.

    I have tried a few things, i.e. renaming the extension of a MP4 encoded in the resolution for a thumbnail from .mp4 -> .thm but nothing.

    Does anyone think that maybe an ISO can be created for movies?

    I would look at the file strucutre of a UMD movie disc myself and figure it out, but I dont have any. Does anyone have one they can explore using their PSP in USB mode set to the UMD drive so the file structure of the movie can be revealed?

    This way we could possibly find out what information needs to be included to have BG images, BG sounds and movie thumbs? =o)

    Like the new Jackass game, i only have 2GB memory cards at the moment so ive got one game and a few songs on my PSP, i could do with updating to a bigger memory card, id like an 8GB but ive heard stories abotu a lot of fakes and that they arent as fast as the 2/4 gig

    get a 4 gig, compress the game, rip the music and put in ur own (With the music plugin). that can get it down to maybe 750 approximatley.

    With the putting your own music in, do you actually put the music into the game or play it while playing the game? I havnt tried it out yet (The music plugin).

    Tried compressing the game but then for some reason you cant switch episodes (7 episodes with different tasks in each one).

    You press the R button to switch episode and the letters just go bigger and smaller but it doesnt switch episode.

    I heard a few people have had this problem unless it was just a bad rip ;)

    Do you know what the plugin is called? Also, which ISO compressor do you use that can take out the music etc or do you open the ISO with WinRAR and take certain parts out?

    Sorry for all the questions, this is an area i havnt yet got into
