#426 closed defect (fixed)

two thumbnails (mpg,nuv) being generated for the same recording

While recording a mpeg2 stream and then viewing that recording in-progress in the watch recordings menu, a thumbnail is generated with a .mpg.png extension.

After the recording is finished and has been transcoded a mpeg4 and then you go into watch recordings menu again (or via mythweb) a second thumbnail is generated against the new filename (.nuv.png). The old .mpg.png thumbnail still exists.

In the end, you have two thumbnails for one video.

Could we not just have filename.png thumbnail and dispense with the stream format sub-extension? I havn't looked at the code, so I don't know if this is feasable.

(In [7403]) Rename the preview pixmap .png file if a recording is renamed from .mpg to .nuv after being transcoded. This closes #426, but does not address the question of whether we should get rid of the format sub-extension in the preview filename. That would be much more invasive than this patch but is possible. Patches welcome.
