How to Add Thumbnail Pics to TVersity

You can define a thumbnail image that you would like to use for a file in your Tversity library by modifying one of that file's properties through your Web browser. Tversity will then use your defined image to identify that file in any compatible device that can access your TVersity library. Identifying files with thumbnails can increase the speed with which you browse your library, particularly if you have a lot of similarly named files that all appear in the same directory.

      Replace the "file://your-file-location" portion of the text with the location of the file that you want to specify as your thumbnail image. For example, if your file is located in the "Pictures" folder on your hard drive and is titled "Movie.jpg," then the file location might be "file://C:\Users\Public\Pictures\Movie.jpg." Press "Enter" to apply the change.
