Coming Soon - MediaStream v1.5 - skunkm0nkee - 2009-12-29 14:45
If you've been following recent posts in the MediaStream v1.00 thread then you may have picked up on the fact I'm currently working on the skin and am hoping to refresh it slightly and bring it up to date. (After all v1.00 was released over a year ago!)
I'm going to move any comments in the v1.00 to this thread so that any discussions relating to the changes aren't confused with valid v1.00 questions.
The early focus for the changes I'm making are as follows:
Feel free to post any suggestions you may have but one of my goals for this upcoming release is to reduce the number of options in the skin so your suggestions will probably need to have a wide appeal for them to be accepted.

After I download from the SVN, do I just copy the downloaded files to the skins directory or must I compile it somewhere/somehow?

Run build.bat script in Windows or build.sh in Linux and then copy the MediaStream folder from the BUILD folder into your XBMC/skin folder.
BTW I've just added a few more changes in the last 5 mins so you might be better to update again befoe building

Nice to see those updates.
Hope, you get into the Container.SetSortMethod issue for the video section and some other like sort by music rating.
You fixed this earlier but Container.SetSortMethod(23) works now for movies by name

Cool, I got it working, I'll give the new one a whirl in a few min..
BTW, I am new to XBMC (came from MeediOS) and I love this theme, it is so good the way you put TV/Movies on the main menu thats all it takes to hook me in..
Do you have somewhere that tells what changes you make so I can test them as I go..
I have seen a post from you that says you are adding features that have been added to XBMC but that have not been incorporated into this theme yet.. what changes are these going to be?

When on the main menu, there is that awesome little popup on the right hand side that shows recently added shows/movies is there some way that you can get to that with the remote? maybe by pressing left??

UserInterface Wrote:Do you have somewhere that tells what changes you make so I can test them as I go..Check the SVN log for now as that should have details of the changes. Once'the release is ready I'll put together a proper change history at that point.

The main things I'm adding are media flagging support, latest movies/episodes etc, slider dialog (for audio synching) and a basic tidy up of the UI and it's usability. I'm also removing a number of the older options to try and streamline things and make it easier to use the skin.
I'll probably be releasing a version 1.1 in the next week or two and then look for feedback and maybe other suggestions.

I do have one request, I hope that you can accommodate..
I can not get to the context menu ("C" on the keyboard) from the remote control to update moves\tv (update library)...
Is there some way you could move that or have an option to merge that menu into the menu that shows when you press right??

One more thing (I am fairly sure this is the last), is it possible to have the file name show in the path?
When a movie you have not seen yet gets scraped wrong it would help to identify it without having skip around ruining the soon to be watched movie..

I've started this new thread and have now moved across posts from the v1.00 thread to this one as mentioned in the first post of this thread.
I'll post further updates whenever I can and I hope to be able to do a proper release of the skin in the next week or two.
