I'll do what I can with my mods when I'm at home. Should finish the homescreen mod for shade this weekend

Is there any way to determine the aspect ratio of a playing video? I need it for the now playing screen to be different if 16:9 or 4:3

Some progress today I had some time
Moved the featured movies to it's new location and added the glow behind the now playing movie

Okay so I haven't stopped working on this it's just that my classes started picking up so I will most likely only be able to work on it during the weekends.
Anyway I was working on the weather icons (for a weather page) and was wondering what everyone thought of them before I finalize them. What I wanted to create was something that matched exactly what phyek was going for, and if you believe they do not meet that requirement please tell me why. The only icon I was really having trouble with is fog, because the whole idea of the skin being extremely clean makes every fog icon look absolutely horrible.
Snow icon has the flakes off center I already realized that

They are cool even for a weather widget on the home page.
Btw what do you think of the home screen, still have to move a few stuff but do you think I was able to reproduce your work and Phyeks faithfully?

I think the home screen is a bit too cluttered.

I agree with amelandbor, the beautiful of the main page is that is so clean (and the OSD is very big). Dvorac the weather icons are gorgeous :O

Honestly, my opinion on the home page is that you started adding personal preferences (which is fine since you are not making an official skin) and it started to become chaotic. Also, you might be missing a few overlays that are there to darken to background in order for the difference between the glow and the fanart to not seem so large.

The Featured movies/tv shows/albums can be turned on or off. The RSS ticker too.
As far as the overlays, I used all the layers on your PSD. For the background there was just one layer (shadow_overlay), maybe the method I used for the glow is wrong? I exported the whole layer as one png (not the individual effects)
