But I think here is better and bigger

Thing is that space varies too much, if one of the tags is missing the path tag goes up and get over the logo, even one of that tags could be too long and get over the logo (like in the combo SS, right bottom image). And making the width of does tags shorter isn't something that would look nice, already tried Wink



@ Oddsodz

Please tell me if you have any idea to make the AudioBooks "better", I'll take them under consideration. It's hard to code for something I don't have, your vid helped a lot to see bugs like the long titles you have, so I pushed the list in tracks more to the left, things like that, also shorten the main title, maybe also tags/info you think would be nice placed somewhere.

I saw that you say, so remove the suggestion.
mcborzu is right, there is little room for flags.
But I like, as it has done in your mod.
Thanks

Hi,
Just wandering if you would be willing to do a quick tutorial on how you set up audiobooks, it would be greatly appreciated.

@KiSUAN
Oh, On a side note. There is a small bug on the "Audiobook" view.

[Image: audiobookchanges.jpg]

I Bet it's just a line typo in the code.

- KiSUAN - 2011-01-31 03:54

Fixed. I set up Subtitle to be Type not Author, so you can place little comments, perhaps the works that compose that album in case that is more than one book (a collection or something), think that would be more helpful/interesting. And I changed the field Genre for Moods that usually are fields for "Genres", so you can really display it and not the AudioBook tag.

Also I could use 3 moree tags Style/Theme/Label to display additional info in the Audiobooks view if you want, let me know.


Finally I have a request, could you upload a nice SS of the AudioBook Track & AudioBook View to put in the 1st page, as you have the Audiobooks and with music covers (all I got) looks like crap. I`ll also add your nice Tuto Big Grin

And with Track view is all right?


- nitefour - 2011-01-31 07:19

Thank you very much for the tutorial. Wish I would have had it before I wasted hours trying to set it up myself. One thing though, I'm not getting any "review/description" info only writer and year. I am using a program called TagScanner and have tried inserting the info adding a comment in the tag and also creating a nfo file. The nfo file the program creates is useless because I have no idea how to edit the file to enter the needed info. If possible could you post a sample nfo that you use for audiobooks.


Also, KISUAN
Thank you for this awesome mod and all the work you have put into it.

Looks cool man. Does this mean that this awesome wallview is available for music as well now? Or am I jumping to conclusions? Laugh

Audiobook howto - Oddsodz - 2011-01-31 19:50

Here is how to type your "album.nfo" file

PHP Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<album>
<mood>Fantasy</mood>
<review>Rescued from the outrageous neglect of his aunt and uncle, a young boy with a great destiny proves his worth while attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry</review>
</album> 

Download a copy here http://oddsodz.com/xbmcdump/album.nfo (right click and save as)

Just change what ever is inside the <review> lines

And place it here

Below is how I "id3 tag" my audio files

[Image: audiobooktaggings.jpg]

I Use MediaMonkey from http://www.mediamonkey.com

And here is what the end results look like

Album view

And the Track View

Hope this helps

Maybe we could add the "label" field of the .nfo and have that represent the "Narrated/Read by" and add the artist name. In my case above it would be "Stephen Fry".

PHP Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<album>
<label>Stephen Fry</label>
<mood>Fantasy</mood>
<review>Rescued from the outrageous neglect of his aunt and uncle, a young boy with a great destiny proves his worth while attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry</review>
</album>

Ok, done.

So, as for now, the template for the NFO and fields that are used are this:


Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<album>
    <title>Title shown in View, usually fill with name of the Book/Collection</title>
    <artist>Writer</artist>
    <genre>Audiobook (this field is taged always audiobook so you can create the Album Smart Playlist</genre>
    <mood>Genre</mood>
    <review>Summary or Description of a Book/Collection</review>
    <type>SubTitle shown in the View, usually fill with breakdown of books of a Collection or such</type>
    <label>Person who Narrated/Read the book</label>
    <rating>As you wish</rating>
    <year>Year of published or Recorded, as you see fit</year>
</album>

About soft for Id3tag I wouldn`t really recommend mediamokey, it has a ton of blotware, also tries to do to many things and doesn't end doing nothing really well, I would recommend File Renamer http://www.sherrodcomputers.com/products_filerenamer.cfm, that`s also useful to rename files beside id3tags to keep a proper structure indexation of your libraries.

I'm gonna update the first page now...

Enjoy


- KiSUAN - 2011-02-01 01:18

Update:

Merely a formality, Audio Book support is official within the skin and guide, first page updated with instructions/info.

Enjoy.
