Nevermind it worked lol. for anyone with that issue a good idea would be to copy the name of the folder that has the artist name with the music in, and paste it in the one you gonna put the fanArt I dunno why that made it work.

because of what I told you, the name of the fanart folder have to be the exact artist/band name XBMC display and in some OS those names are case sensitive like (ex. black eyed peas IS NOT THE SAME AS Black Eyed Peas).
and also the default fallback fanart will show up depending of your XBMC svn version, but glad it work for you.

as of svn r24254, xbmc supports MusicPlayer.Property(Fanart_Image)
so for showing a single fanart image, you can use this instead of the 'workaround' that's currently being used.

ronie Wrote:hey reaven,
thanks nice to know, but from where it reads the fanart?, from the music source folder ?
currently am reading the fanart from the corresponding music folder along with the music in the music storage source the same with cdArts.
Basically my cdart reside inside the corresponding music album folder and my fanart inside the artist/band folder (locally or remote)
this is for the single fanart, the fanart slideshow cant be read from remote sources (ASAIK).
*note this will not work with the current posted mod, if you use this you have to make the corresponding changes, movement, deletion and editing of the necessary images, folder, files, cdarts, fanarts, ect..!

I've put a request in on the Rapier sub-forum about incorporating cdArts into the skin.
Can anyone help?

MusicPlayer.Property(Fanart_Image) should pull the fanart from the cached fanart image I believe

what cache fanart if at least my music is not scrape with anything so there is no fanart in any cache just the fanart i download and put it in the artist folder

I may be completly wrong about that, I'll need to test out how it actually works as I can't find a definitive answer.
I'm not sure if the fanart is cached if the music is not scanned into the library

what joebrady said.
of course you'll have to scan your music to the library first, it will pick up the fanart images you currently have in the artist folders.

so the code practically would be the same except instead of the <texture> line I would use <info> ?
