So even though I downloaded and installed the mod less than 2 days ago will these new changes not be present in the version I obtained? If so (and hence I need to modify the xml code) what xml file is the code in?
I'll have a look myself naturally.

reaven Wrote:like Mcborzu said this info is old there is a new code that pull the .png from the currently playing album folder and its suppose to be name cdart.png.
The version of the cdart mod I have already has this line in it and it still isn't working.
I have a the cd art under the album eg// "/Tool/10000 Days/cdart.png" but that isn't working. Even the fanart in the parent directory is not working: "Tool/fanart.jpg".
I noticed that the line of code you mentioned is missing a "/" between ] and cdart.png but I tried it with and without that and it made no difference. (it should be in there anyway).
I've tried different names, I've tested the png files and they work fine when set as the default cd image.
I'm totally and utterly lost and incredibly frustrated :-(

Make sure you have a current version of xbmc or it won't work. I am not sure which revision allows the new way to work.

Hmm I can't get the revision off the top of my head but I am using XBMC Live and it was downloaded less than 2 months ago. Is the change that recent that it may only be 2 or 3 weeks old?
I'm going to assume no going by the dates of some of these more recent posts.

the version is in the log file at the top.
You need to be at svn r27711 or later
and you are right sorry:

Just now got around to using this mod. Pretty neat! I got the cdart correctly populating from my album folders (Music/(Date)/Rise Against/Appeal To Reason). However, I am unable to get the artist fanart to show up correctly.
If someone could give me the code so that is pulls fanart from the Music/(Date)/(Artist)/ folder it would be much appreciated! Also, do I then just have fanart.jpg, fanart2.jpg, and so forth?

Also, fanart is only 1280x720 right? Downloading 1920x1080 fanart will not produce a better result correct?

Hi all, can it be that cdart is just showing if the music album is scanned and in library mode. For me is cdart and artist fanart only working if i choose an album that is already in my library.

As far as I know the skins depend on the music to be scanned into the library for the cdart to be displayed. I could be wrong though.. I know my script requires the music to be scanned into the library for it to find and download cdarts..
