This isn't possible. Database's don't work that way and it would be inefficient to do so.

It would be possible by using blobs (binary large objects) ... with this you can store binary data in databases ... but i don't think this will be the goal for xbmc here (IMHO).
@freaksworth ... ohh cool ... didn't saw that in the code ... seems to be handled somewhat at another place.
for the "recently added" feature don't load thumbs i would need a xbmc.log for investigation

Quick update to my Thumbnail quandary...
I created a new DB on MySQL and pointed my MacBook Pro at it. I'm importing the TV folder at the moment and thumbnails are showing up locally.
I made a quick change to one of the Apple TV's and pointed it the same way. Thumbnails also seemed to show up!!!!
But since I'm mapped to the share they would show up locally on the importing machine. Non mapped clients CANNOT load thumbnails.
So, waste of time really.

I thought databases were a tool to store data, whatever the type (ie text, images, sounds).
How stupid do I feel now?

But it's related to how one manages the XBMC metadata using a MySQL Library support... taking it one step further... :confused2:

do you want me to read you the topic name?
your post belongs in "future requests" or "development" thread

I apologize.... I am just excited about the centralized MySQL library.
