[MOD] Music WallStream View - benobi - 2009-11-29 16:07
I used to really love the WallStream view from the original Mediastream, mostly for my music library, but it never made it into Jezz_X's redux mod. I asked for it a couple of times and well, seems like I am the only on who likes it... Anyway, I spent an afternoon trying to understand how that skinning thing is working and I merged some Mediastream code into Confluence so that I can get the Wallstream in my music library.
It is my first try, so if you find bugs or issues feel free to modify/complain about it.
All props go to Team Razorfish and to Jezz_X, these are their codes and graphics.
UPDATE 12/02/09: I cleaned up the code quite bit and changed the style a little bit. Also got rid of the "pop-up" windows after reading on the forums that they are not advised. Finally added some transparency effect to better match the overall Confluence style
To install, just download the link below and drop over your existing Confluence skin folder.

Very nice. I like it.

I'm also a huge fan of wall views.
They are just perfect for large music collections.

Great work! Any chance that you want to port over the movie view as well? I love wall view! The other views don't make much sense for anyone with over 20 movies.

thrasherx, I'll give a shot at the movie view this week-end and see how much work it is.
I'll also see if I can improve the Music View a bit.

I updated the music view quite a bite, I'll look at the Movies and hopefully it won't be too complicated!

Awesome, thanks. Another suggestion would be to make the coverart (music and movies) scale so that it fills the entire square and doesn't leave any black space between the adjacent ones. I assume that you know how to do this, but ask me if not.

I haven't seen this problem of pictures not stretching on my install, it might be due to my music collection being too organized Could you post a screenshot of this issue so that I better understand and visualize it? thx

I assume he means this as demonstrated in your screenshot....

Yeah, I was referring to the original screenshot. I noticed that on the big thumb view for confluence, the covers don't scale to fill the icon size. The same went for Mediastream_redux. I tested it out though, and it looks good.
Does anybody else prefer the vertical wall, or is it just me?
