I am working with XBMC server by operating it with a remote (application developed by me for Ipad) by using the command set of XBMC. Here I am unable to find the commands for OSD, retrieving the Thumbnail Image and adding a new file(either audio or video) from the source of server. I have referred all the Actions and Windows Id's but I am unable to figure out the proper command to perform the above mentioned actions throgh my application. Some one please help me with this..
Regards & Thanks,

I strongly recommend you use the JSON API rather than the HTTP API. In theory the HTTP API is deprecated and will be removed at some point.
I had a quick look at the source and it looks as if the gettagfromfilename command will return a thumbnail.
What do you want to do with the OSD? If you just want to open it use execbuiltin(activatewindow(videoosd)).
