MiniMeedia v0.81 Released (26/05/2009) - skunkm0nkee - 2009-05-26 20:52
Thanks to everyone for all the feedback over the last few days and all the help in tracking down bugs and issues. I've managed to deal with most of them (I think) and have also made a few improvements and tweaks which will hopefully add to the skin.
The main changes are as follows:
Minimal Video OSD with new Player Controls:
Use Recent Version of XBMC
In order to get the best out of this release you need to be using a version of XBMC built in the in the last week or so (since the changes to XBMC to allow background loading of multiimages). A new version of t3ch was released for xbox on 21st May, any earlier t3ch builds will not work with the skin.
If you do decide to use it without an up to date version of XBMC then you'll probably find that none of the backgrounds appear. You have been warned.
If you do find any problems or have any suggestions on improvements to the skin please describe them as fully as possible and give screenshots where possible.
Have fun and enjoy!
Skin download link - MiniMeedia v0.81
The skin itself does not contain any real background images since most users will already have a set of background images that they like (for MediaStream and Aeon skins etc) and I assume most users will be using fanart for the Movies and TV Shows anyway.
I have a nice set of custom background images that I use and aim to provide download links so that users can use these if they want.
Background download links -
Movies - Movies Backgrounds 1 Movies Backgrounds 2
TV Shows - TV Show Backgrounds
Videos - Videos Backgrounds
Music - Music Backgrounds
Pictures - Pictures Backgrounds
System - System Backgrounds
Power - Power Backgrounds
DVD - DVD Backgrounds
The skin is setup to work with Weather Fanart (the weather background should match the current weather conditions) and to get this working properly I recommend downloading timdog's Weather Fanart pack

Waffa Wrote:Yeah indeed, the 1 out of 5 stars (song rating) doesn't show in the (little) info field and it needs to because you can set it when visualsation view is showing by pressing up/down. Try it out in MediaStream it's a nice feature.
Waffa, I had a bit of a look at the Music Vis screen and as far as I can tell pressing up/down does nothing. Am I to assume that at the moment MiniMeedia doesn't allow you to set the rating for songs at all and that you want me to add that ability? (From your first post I thought it did allow it but just wasn't showing the correct label)

I did test it and it works in MiniMeedia, you can set rating that way.
Only you can't see it in that view.
You have to go out of vis and look for the rating.
So like to see song ratings also in the little info field.
This feature has MediaStream also, all the skins btw.

Wow - great update! From v0.81 Minimeedia is replacing Aeon Auriga as my default skin! One request: Is there any chance that fanart in "now playing" view will be supported in a future version. I am desperately craving fanart in combination with "Party mode" and "Smart playlists"...

I found a little problem (don't want to call it a bug or a feature. )
In the tvshow.nfo for Scrubs, Media Companion set the studio-tag to
Now MiniMeedia is showing both studio-icons on top of each other.
Should I remove a studio, or can you fix this?
Btw, thanks for this skin, I love it!
