    How to add custom theme on setting

    1. Create new folder named Autologo in your computer, prepare custom wallposter picture [Pixel is 1920 x 1080, JPG, named background1.jpg], then copy this picture and blur it [Suggest to use Gaussian Blur setting in Photoshop, and the best setting is “40”]. Put these JPG files into the Autologo folder. PS: The background pictures light won’t be too high, if too light, which will effect the UI words display, then you need adjust the light as your demand.

    2. Copy this Autologo folder from PC into U disc root directory.


    3. Then connect this U disc to Egreat Media Player, then the custom wallposter function will be effective immediately, please Setting—General—Theme—Custom wallposter chosen automatically

    PS: 1. The firmware version must be after V1.2.2.3 firmware
    2.The custom wallposter only can be available one picture for every time.

    Thanks @A10_User , Steps as below:
    Step - 1 Create folder named "Autologo"
    Step - 2 Make JPG file 1920x1080 named 'backgound1.jpg"
    Step - 3 Make a blur of this JPG file (1920x1080) named 'backgound2.jpg"
    Step - 4 copy this 2 files in folder "Autologo"
    Step - 5 copy "Autologo" folder in root of usb disk
    Step - 6 Shutdown and rebooot the box
    (It's working)

    This is a really dumb way of changing wallpaper, Why cant we change it the normal way like every other device on the market, You shouldn't have to jump through hoops and and do all sorts of strange things to change your wallpaper

    Yes I got it working but for some reason I have to reboot to get the custom image to show, This is just a really hacked way of setting wallpaper, They need to fix the launcher so it points to a folder called wallpaper on the box not on USB

    @Rita is it technically possible to make it simpler...like just plug a usb drive and browse..the 2 wanted pictures ?:confused:
    cause testing with one wallpaper each time takes time :)

    Copy background1.jpg, background2.jpg to \\<ip_player>\share\sdcard\Android\data\org.egreat.launcher\Autologo
    background2.jpg --> is show as default when custom theme is active
    background1.jpg --> use after 30 sec of idle

    switch to Pink Flower theme and back to Custom to apply.
