That looks really professional...
Would it be at all possible to maybe press down again to stop trailer?

Thanks very nice but where's advancedsettings.xml?

mkv: you have to create it.
Now I don't mean to threadjack, nor do I wish to clutter the forums with yet another mod of a skin that's in development, and I don't really consider this a mod, I just hope something like this gets implemented as I don't really use trailers, but anoobie inspired me with his idea:

This picture depicts what I have done,
--Moved the plot to the right
--Added the Slideshow
--Removed the 2 small images
--Added a scrolling tagline
--Show the fanart if no image slide show is available(see this in next picture)

My roommate simply can't live without his plot summaries

@fernferret: you're such a dick for highjackkng this thread
Anyhow, I love the mod, it looks great, and exactly what I've been looking for (I've been ripping trailers from my dvd's, or finding them online e so this would be perfect.
FF, I love the plot summary idea, I find this very useful. It's a good idea to show the fanart if no slideshow is availible, Anyhow I haven't had a chance to read through the multiplex thread all the way. I was wondering how to add images for the slideshow. (where to I place be images, and what's the naming scheme?)

does it play the trailer in the window?
somehow it always goes into fullscreen?
Did i miss something ?
i have made the entry:
in the advancedsettings.xml
but it still goes into fullscreen.

this looks awsome, i agree that if this doesn't have the ability to play trailers or clips i think it should be similar to display maybe random images from within the video folder.

djh_ Wrote:Ah. So the only way to send the trailer direct to the window is to basically deactivate all automatic fullscreen playback for the whole of XBMC? Either that or the trailer kicks off in fullscreen and you have to manually switch to the windowed version.
Yeah, basically when you wanna watch the real movie, you have to press tab.
This mod was created with the xbmc noobs in mind. I always have guests come to my house and they keep asking me what's the movie about, can we see preview, etc. This basically gives them all that without them bugging me. And with kiosk mode on, it's perfect.

you need to put this in advancedsettings.xml
Quote:Also, just because i feel like playing, which version did you take Viewtype_Multiplex from? ie how long ago. I just want to see a diff.
I just updated the files using the latest ones from github.

go to AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata make a text file name it to advancedsettings.xml, then in it put this
Quote:where to I place be images, and what's the naming scheme?
For this mod, you put the images in your movie folder and the images can be any name. The movie fanart and movie poster are also used in the slideshow so it will cycles between those if you don't have extra images.

That's what I wanna do also but I can't figure out how. Maybe some real skinners can help out.
