Could someone please add the following to this page (with better words than mine): http://www.nextpvr.com/nwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Configuration.VideoMetadata#toc3

folder.jpg/folder.png
Will override the appearance of the default folderimages from the used skin.

<filename>.jpg/<filename>.png
Will display coverart of <filename> on the screen.

fanart.jpg/fanart.png
Will change the wallpaper according to the saved fanart.jpg/fanart.png in a subfolder.

Difference between .jpg and .png
The most interesting differences between both compression formats are, that .jpg is better suited for photos and .png has better capabilities for non photorealistic graphics.
The second difference is, that .png support transparency what can be useful in some situations.
