Overriding Artwork and Metadata

Overview

In some cases it may be useful to add your own metadata and artwork for specific titles. This may be the case when you want to see a specific image, or add details for things like home videos.

Favorite Artwork

Custom artwork can be set for favorites by adding an image inside the folder based favorite.

On Apple TV, favorite artwork can also be selected by long-pressing on a favorite icon and choosing the 'Select Favorite Artwork' option.

iOS/Mac

  • favorite.png (or jpg) - 1000 x 1500px recommended size

Folder Artwork
