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.

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.

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...

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.

There´s a way to make it automatically? I can´t make it manually for all my library!

Uffff... I doubt it if I can that make it... too much albums... but any way, is a good "concept".
Hey Dud! Can you make something like flags for Music? That´s could be awasome!!

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