Why won't he cdart play with this skin? I noticed that a generic cdart plays in the quick menu mode, but does not play when the cd is playing. Will this be fixed soon? I love this skin, i have been using the cirrus moded skin which is very well done as well.

Let me know if the cdart fix is on the roadmap or does it require a simple setting change.

Cheers.

I use the Xperience 1080. I have the cdart in the folders with the albums and the naming convention is cdart.png. When playing music you see the cover in a coverflow format with not spinning cdart.

Simply not implemented... and I have no intentions to do so.

Black, this is a beautiful skin, one of the best i have seen so far. I was using the Cirrus mod skin before I started to use the Xperience 1080 skin. You already have the track info on the left and a coverart flow. You could simply replace the second cover art and replace that with the spinning cdart. Why not continue the trend and the functionality of cdart. What is the use of having the cdart manager function in your skin if we cannot utilize it. Please reconsider. This is probably a minor adjustment to get this to work. Thank you for all your hard work and I look forward to all your tweaks to this very clean skin.

CDArt is available for maybe 1% (it's even less I guess) of all albums/eps/singles. Hence it's kinda useless if you have 100 albums and max. 10 of them have CDArt.... I'm not willing to implement a non and possible dead (the cd will extinct in the future) "standard". With tv shows for example it's different... there are much much less tv shows than there are albums so you have banner, logo, cleartart etc. for almost all your shows.

Well I have maybe 75% cdart for my albums however i do see your point in this. They need to be very common album or you should make them yourself (which is really easy)

EDIT:
At the moment there are 3900 cdarts available at fanart.tv so we just need more people adding them.

There is a lot support for cdart today...i understand that cd format will be phased out, however, you have set up the program to play a generic cd in the quick menu. Maybe I am being difficult, but why not change to code to play the cdart that is resident in the album folder. I like to see my cdart, not this grey disc spinning. That's all i will say on this topic. I cannot write code...i am just a fan. I love your work, keep up the good job and i appreciate all you do for the "xperience" skin.
