So it is impossible to get it to work without messing up my id3tag?
I have another problem with band names like 3OH!3 cause i can't name the file 3OH!3.

My music folder looks like this compilation/ministry of sound - the annual 2010/cdx (1,2,3)

What should my cdart folder look like? Sorry må stupid question. I'm a noob Smile

all depends how you tag your albums.. example

artist:Ministry of Sound
Album names:Annual 2010 Disc 1 and Annual 2010 Disc 2
cdArt file names : ministry of sound-Annual 2010 Disc 1.png and ministry of sound-Annual 2010 Disc 2.png

of course this example works if your albums tags have the same album name and artist name as here.

My tag look lige this
Album artist: (Blank, cause that way it is placed in the compilation folder in xbmc)
and my album is called Ministry of Sound - The Annual 2010

great plug-in. Now i'll remain busy trying to fix my media library with backgrounds and cd images. It never ends!

Anyway, my question is how do I make the transition between fanart smoother? I have several fanart images in the folder within 'artists_fanart' and they do cycle but it is not smooth at all. I was able to extend the time they are on the screen through music_visualisation.xml but couldn't figure out a fade or anything.

Thanks!

another question:

for the Fanart, bands like AC/DC wont show up since i can't put a "/" in a folder name. Any suggestions?


- sergiocos - 2009-11-22 04:54

Tag the band AC-DC. Actually the "/" sign is also incorrect... Big Grin

I think you need
<include>Animation_BackgroundFade</include> somewhere in the that xml

I put that right after the image call and right at the end of the section but it didn't work for both.

Hey Dud! Can you make something like flags for Music? That´s could be awasome!! Nod


- joebrady - 2009-11-24 17:49

Are you looking for Fanart for the artists or the CdArt images?
