oh and my roomies are really happy about the "recently added" stuff on the home page, since we are all independently downloading different stuff, this way the Home page of our living room box is showing whatever is new

There is allready skin setting to disable it in the Home Window section (this should stop it running too) I guess turning it off by default might be the idea. For people having lots of trouble its probably because of really large music libraries I commented out the fetch line in mine and it seems faster.
For those who are game try replaceing the one in the skins scripts dir with this version of the script and see if its any better (I commented out everything I don't use instead of using the default)

SleepyP Wrote:Most recently I have been running MiniMeedia as my main skin. This one is nice enough that I think I'm using MediaStream Redux now, especially since it works well on the XBox as well I'll try and make my feedback as useful as possible:
1) Weather fanart allready on it go to left on the weather page then Misc Options
2) currently no space
3) Watched stuff is on the to be completed side whats in now was very basic
4) your welcome
6) to be honest I'm suprised it works at all :0 Its a hold over from pm3.hd that I used to remake this (will look into them)
7) yeah not going to change the xpr is unprotected though so feel free to extract it and change the images

paco Wrote:For the most part this redux is excellent. I do love the fonts and overall feel of this version. Very slick! The favorites menu is well located! I do have a couple of issues however. Maybe some can be tweaked and I'm not aware.
1) possible but not in the skin and to honest I really don't wanna
2) try the script I posted just above or go into skin settings and turn it off
3) no idea
4) Its on the side options menu deiscussed earlier in the thread
5) show make it smaller yourself

Jezz_X Wrote:- In the music section list view, I would be nice to have the artist bio beside the artist picture (same goes for albums).That's also what I was asking earlier, to have some more viewing options in the music section, specially some artist bio and album info, which are really cool and IMHO add to the overall look of the skin...
No idea means you didn't understand his request or that you don't care about it?
- Jezz_X - 2009-07-03 01:57
But yeah Views types in general except the video library are in a state of flux and shall get refined and added to as I get to them. This is version 0.8.5 after all
I just wanted to get it out to the public because currently its more than useable

Jezz_X Wrote:understandAnd thank you for that!
It's really an improvement, specially because MS hasn't seen and update for a long time now...
I'm sure that when it's done its going to be perfect
autoresume patch - pilluli - 2009-07-03 06:53
This seems to have been fixed in r21341, however, it does not ask for it but always resumes... maybe there is a way to do it from within the skin...
pilluli Wrote:I managed to create a little patch to include the autoresume funcionality in XBMC. It's a little bit messy and it always creates the context menu asking if the video should be resumed at the same position though. If any devs know how to get the current control coordinates from within the file "Application.cpp" then I can make it to behave a little better. In any case, code should not be duplicated but a common function (in Util.cpp ) should be done (but didn't know where to put it).

My code is quite easy to read compared to the old mediastream and aeon I prefer to actually keep code in the windows and not put it all in 1 big include file making it super hard to read.
So shouldn't be too hard

Thanks Jezz, I took a look and it really looks much better than the original mediastream. btw, do you think it will be possible to ask for the resume position (using the context dialog) within the skin and pass the result to the playmedia function?
