Music FanArt in Horizonz? - Shaman - 2009-02-05 22:55
As a very recent (and happy) user of XBMC and Horizonz I was wondering if there was any possibility to activate fanart in the music section.
I kind of remember reading somewhere that this was implemented (though recently) in XBMC and would like to know if it possible in Horizonz and if yes how.
Thanks in advance!

Yes I would like to know aswell. more specifically I'd like to be able to choose fanart based on what artist I'm viewing. So that while for example I'm browsing Streetlight Manfiesto's Albums, there will be fanart in the backround)

This isn't hard to do at all...if X2B doesn't help you out, lemme know, and I'll add the feature for you...

Thanks for the quick reply, but yeah I'm really new here, and to XBMC in general, if you could let me know how to do this it'd be great, or by some stretch you'd do it that'd be fantastic.

No problem. What I mean is X2bIris is the guy who does Horizons. Why don't you send him a PM and ask about the fanart...if he doesn't get back to you in a day or to, let me know, and I'll make the changes for you.

ok sweet. I'll definitely through him a PM, and let you know if he lends me a hand. If not I'll hit you up. Thanks for for the offer!

Can music fanart be fetched automatically?

I'm pretty sure there's no way to 'fetch' or scrape music fanart automatically at this stage.
But i could be wrong?

No, you're right. It's not that there's no WAY to scrape it...there's no where to scrape it from.
However, fekker's working on a program that will take and scan a folder of fanart images, then match them to the specific artist folder. It's called MMP, formerly Movie Info Plus.
And I also made a new backgrounds.xml file for Horizionz IV...it *should* work, but I can't test because this workstation has no music on it, and I'm lucky to even be able to run XBMC at all.
Anyone wanting to give it a try and let me know if it works can PM me for a copy. Once I know it works, I'll post a link here.
