This isn't really on topic with this thread, but how do you get the 1080p and DTS to show up in your skin? all my videos just show ? marks for the audio and video...is there a way to fix it?


- Only One Haze - 2009-05-17 18:15

anoobie (or anyone else that knows the answer) i have applied the "big thumb fade out to synopsis" mod, but is there any way to make the thumb fade out instead of just dissappearing all at once? i messed with the fade time but that just affected the speed in which it showed up. is there like a fadeout control that could be applied after the system idle time?

also, i noticed that with this applied, after the big thumb dissappears, if you start the trailer the thumb reappears and dissappears after another 5 seconds. and then if you stop the trailer the thumb reappears again. is it possible to set it so that once it dissappears the first time that it doesnt reappear until i leave that movie and come back to it?

once again thanks for all your help and hard work

There are about 100 different topics about this. Search "media flags" on this sub forum and you should be able to answer your own question.

hey all

does anybody know how to make trailers work with full dvd movies ( video ts files not avi files ). Cant figure this out?

Thanks
Martin


- DJ_Elo - 2009-05-18 00:25

well,either you have a trailer in ure movie folder called moviename-trailer.avi or you have it linked to a trailer site so that it auto streams (which I'm not sure exactly how to do..)

instead of just slideshowing pictures it would be awesome if that layout could play a trailer aswell, its thumb/art mode. and the person behind the layout is here

http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=50032

if anyone know what kind of code needs to be implemented to let that window play a trailer aswell, it would been so much appreciated

hi, find this in mutliplexview.xml

Code:
            <control type="group">
                <posx>612</posx>
                <posy>18</posy>
                <visible>Skin.HasSetting(multiplexfanart)</visible>                
                <control type="image">
                    <posx>0</posx>
                    <posy>0</posy>
                    <width>617</width>
                    <height>351</height>
                    <texture>common/black.png</texture>
                    <colordiffuse>94FFFFFF</colordiffuse>
                    <animation effect="fade" start="50" end="50" time="0" condition="!Skin.HasSetting(darkmultiplex)">Conditional</animation>                    
                </control>                
                <control type="largeimage">
                    <posx>2</posx>
                    <posy>2</posy>
                    <width>613</width>
                    <height>347</height>
                    <aspectratio>scale</aspectratio>
                    <fadetime>400</fadetime>
                    <texture>$INFO[Container(52).listitem.property(fanart_image)]</texture>
                </control>

and add this right below it

Code:
<control type="videowindow" id="2">
                      <posx>2</posx>
                      <posy>2</posy>
                      <width>613</width>
                      <height>347</height>    
                 </control>

then find this
Code:
<ondown>60</ondown>

and change it to
Code:
<ondown>PlayMedia($INFO[ListItem.Trailer],1)</ondown>

Hi I just updated so that it does what you want. I also added the zoom effect to the trailer window, which I thought was pretty neat. Let me know what you think.


- Ayla - 2009-05-18 17:20

anoobie or somebody else;

I want to use this MOD, but:

all my fanart is named [moviename]-fanart.jpg but it isn't scraped into my XBMC database because Plex has this disabled.

Is there any way that I can show the fanart when the trailer isn't playing?

I know that you can point to a filename in the fanart path, for example: fanart.jpg - but can I do the same with a "dynamic" name like [moviename]-fanart.jpg ?

Thanks Smile

thanks man, i will take a look when i get home, are the changes noted in the .xml? i am copying the changes into my .xml cuz i have other mods, so i have to customize your customization. if they arent marked its cool, i pretty much know what to look for now. thanks again!

Strange Confused

OK found a command line that works, but now i need more help. here's the command that will play the episode minimized
Code:
<ondown>PlayMedia($INFO[listitem.path]$INFO[listitem.filename],1)</ondown>

but i can't have 2 <ondown> statements, is there away to control when each ondown should be active ?

hope someone can help Smile

I would like to know where is the command line to change the color of title in the file Viewtype_Multiplex?


- Tarlak - 2009-05-19 20:29

Hi,

I try to use the mod 1 with the trailer.

I've got this movie : American Gangster sddvd.mkv
So i put the trailer like this : American Gangster sddvd-trailer.avi

And in the new multiplex view i don't see the trailer, may i miss something ?


- rflores2323 - 2009-05-19 22:00

how do you get the episode names in the tv view with this xml? I see there are other xml with the mod however I like this mod and want to use it. I want the thumb to show episode 1, episode 2, etc.. in the tv show multiplex view.
