So what happened to that video, except long discussion of background music choices?

Pretty much just discussing music choices.
I have then intention of making one eventually, however I wanted to get some other functionality worked out before we do.
And I need a program to make said video with.

I use krut computer recorder. I find it fast and easy to use.
blacklist Wrote:The main menu is hardcoded and would require a mod to change. When you have the main menu active, if you flip the menu left there are 7 customizable items and to the right are additional options (including shudown, etc).
Why you don't use on menu left to bring up favourites? It seems to me favourites has the same goal. And leads to the same shortcuts. Or at least I would think so, if I understand it correct.

Thanks for the reccomendation ill give it a shot.
As for the favorites, as I understand from ronie its a feat to get those to actually display on the home screen. The other issue is we only have 7 slots on the menu and it doesn't scroll, so we could only fit that many favorites anyway. By having custom items you can link to favorites or playlists. And when you flip right, a link to.favorites is the first option at the top.
I think when you see it in action it will make perfect sense.

I use Fraps to record then use Windows Media Maker to edit it...

Camtasia is easy to record and edit with. As far as I know trial version does not watermark. Has an option to upload directly to youtube. It's editor looks like what windows movie maker should. if you have used windows moviemaker Camtasia will be easy to adjust to.

Just going to say... it feels like we've made a good bit of headway in the last couple days. I swear ronie has been coding for 24 hours straight today.
It definatly feels like we're pushing the boundires of XBMC here. Anyone wants to get ready for actor fanart:
Actor Name-fanart.jpg [1200x900 or so...]
Actor Name-thumb1.jpg [800x800 square is how i've been making mine]
Actor Name-thumb2.jpg [see thumb1]
Actor Name-folder.jpg [800x1000 is how i've been making them, although right now all I'm using them for is a 800x800 square]
I'm going to make a new actor "poster" view that will make use of the folder. All the images have fallbacks, and all of the thumbs and poster are being (potentially) filled in thanks to an excellent script from ppic. Right now I'm pulling the 600 most popular actors from my database and seeing a decent lag when doing so, but I will sacrifice a little performance to get the larger list. Lists at 250 and below are nice and snappy.
When we get closer to release I'll probably release a pack of the images I've created so far for the actor fanart... maybe one of the scraper sites will pick up on the idea.

What are the chances of this running (smoothly) on an ATV2? I'm guessing pretty low but I'm living in hope

ha seeing how this skin has every feature you could think of and then some i would say very low but who knows ronie is a good coder i got a atv2 and jailbroke it to test skins on all i can say is what a terrible experience i guess i am comparing it to a core i5 htpc though.
hey blacklist did you check out this video on movie quiz xbmc plug in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fD-2E_YuCw could be a bit tacky but who knows people may love it.
