How Do Videos, Images & Backgrounds Work?

 

Images & Videos

EasyWorship reads the resources folder in your profile to display the thumbnails for Images and Videos. The files aren't stored in a database. Only the thumbnails are in a database. When you add videos and images to the Media tab from another location on your hard drive, such as My Documents, EasyWorship will create a shortcut to the video or image in your profile resources folder.

 

If you delete the video from its original location (My Documents), an exclamation point will appear on the thumbnail for that video or image. The exclamation point means that EasyWorship can't find the file.

 

If you add a video or image to the media area from an external disk like a CD or memory stick, EasyWorship will copy the actual file to the resources folder in your profile.

 

When adding images or videos, you may manually copy your files directly to the video or images folder in resources folder located in Your Profile. This is the preferred method. This way you keep all of your images and videos in the same place. In the event that you want to transfer all of your backgrounds and songs from one computer to another, all you would have to transfer is the data folder and the resources folder.

 

See:Locating Your Profile Data to find out how to located your resources folder.

 

Backgrounds

Backgrounds work differently than the Images and Videos tabs. Backgrounds is an actual database of links to the files you have added to your backgrounds palette. It also contains thumbnails of those images or videos. The actual videos and images aren't in the database. When you add an image or video to the background palette, EasyWorship creates an entry in the database telling it where to look for that file with an attached thumbnail for that file. This is why we recommend keeping all videos and images in the Resources folder mentioned above.

 

If you add a video or image to the media area from an external disk like a CD or memory stick, EasyWorship will not copy the actual file to the database. It will only create a link to the external drive. When you take that disk out or disconnect the drive, an exclamation point will appear on the thumbnail for that background. The exclamation point means that EasyWorship can't find the file.
