Those are some pretty long filenames. Using filenames to embed the description is an interesting way to get a description in there since RMP currently doesn't pull metadata out of video files.
Off the record, have you looked at what a playlist.m3u file might allow you to do?

That's a fun movie with bad audio and really awful video quality as well. Perfect when you just want some noise on your TV!  :lol:

Hey RokuDale!

Playing video files from USB. What is the purpose of the big word bubbles that pop up under any item you have selected? Is there a way to stuff content into there? It looks like it just replicates the filename twice. Can we customize that? I've tried obvious things like VideoName.txt in the folder with it.

Thanks!
John

Dale has retired, and RokuChris has assumed the mantle of RMP support. I don’t recall what you’re referencing, and am currently at the airport waiting for a flight. I won’t be able to look at RMP until I get home Wed, but I’ll look at it and see if I can tell what you mean.
