Congrats for 1.0. One of the best skins for XBMC Smile

Everything is perfect, except that doesnt work on my Xbox (memory problem, my 720p divx videos doesnt start). I'm using lite textures btw.

Anyone knows what version runs best on xbox? thanks

I'd like to know as well. I'd love to be able to use MediaStream on my Xbox but can't as videos aren't playing for me in v1.00. Thanks in advance.

I've also tried with the xbox optimized texture pack, and I still can't play any video files. I get this error:

"Playlist playback aborted
Too many consecutive failed items"

Any ideas?

Reduce the size of your fanart backgrounds, read the faq.txt that comes with the skin

The FAQ actually says to just use the default theme from Appearance to reduce the load on the memory. I tried that to no avail. I would like to try reducing the size of the fanart backgrounds, perhaps I will have more luck with that but I'm not sure of the easiest way to do that. Sorry for the questions and issues.

I'm also running this on my PC and it's working great! Very pleased with it. I still love it on Xbox and prefer it over any other skin even though I can't play videos on it right now! How's that? Haha.

By default do you mean the lite theme?

And to reduce sizes of your images, try irfanview, it lets you resize all of your images in one shot.

What version of the skin do you have? The faq.txt in the latest version should also mention about hiding the Options Menu and reducing fanart

Yeah tried this pack too and no luck Sad

I prefer an earlier version with good fanart size (using 1024x640) btw. I'm using "old" views, new didnt work.

Reduce your fanart to a max of 960x540 also if your films etc are very heavily
compressed then the xbox will use a lot more memory to pad out the video for 4x3 tv's i encode to 640x480 at a bit rate of 2000 at a fram rate of 25(pal)
Using mpeg4. with little or no visible loss of quality on a standard tvCool

the texture pack will not work for everyone as it will give you some more memory to play with but if you kick the baws out of it with high rez images (fan art) pictures and videos then it will not work every film i have tried works fine i run the skin in 720p 16.9 on a 32inch hdtv i have everything that can be enabled on ( Not disabled ) and i can fast forward rewind skip press (X) move about the menus all fine even load plugins ( video jitters but once plugin is load back to normal ) so look at what files you try to play what rez they are most of mine are round 600+ x 250+ wide screen SD rips.

note even Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire extended edition.mkv rez 720x352 works great can do everything else like other files.

My videos are 720p (1280x720) DivX encoded. They always played fine on earlier versions of MediaStream, even with Fanart (resized to 1024x640) and thumbsize to 384px. Only 1.0 I have this problem. Back to 0.95 and all good again Confused

Thanks for the help, but I'm good with this version. I think 0.96 was better, anyone can please point me a link to download v0.96? Thanks

I can't sort my music (songs) by rating.
The selection button doesn't work.

I'm sorry, but is nobody missing a seekbar when you 'scroll' through a song with the thumbstick?? (Xbox, obviously)

I've mapped the functionality to my left stick, but MediaStream (which is pretty much completely awesome by the way) doesn't show it. Not that it's the most accurate way of seeking in a song, but still it's better than having to blindly guess..

Noticed in Atlantis 8.10 with skin version 1.00.
Any info on this?

(Also: yeah, we need a border around the volumelevel please Wink)
TIA

I did miss it and still missing it.
