* I can't seem to get my YouTube to show up on my Home Menu Screen as a sub-menu item

* The latest Confluence skin allows me to add YouTube as a submenu on my Home screen (shows up under movies/videos)

I would like to be able to do that with The Aeon Skin> but do not know how.

* Does anyone know how to add youtube to the Main Menu screen for easier access instead of shuffling through file systems to access it?

I just found out that there is an Aoen MOD skin> Where do I find it since this skin is able to ADD custom menu items.

Or is there still a way to Create a YouTube shortcut on the Home screen with the Default Aoen Add-on skin currently available.

* OS is OSX Mac mini 2010

Here's what I did, I went into AppData intro XBMC roaming, changed the file called "Home.xml" in AppData\Roaming\XBMC\addons\skin.showmix\1080i.

Changed "Custom" to this:
PHP Code:
-  <item id="29"
       <
description>Custom 3</description
       <
icon>special://skin/media/backdrops/youtube/youtube.JPEG</icon> 
       
<thumb>$INFO[Skin.String(CustomMenu3)]</thumb
       <
label>YouTube</label
       <
onclick>XBMC.ActivateWindow(VideoLibrary,plugin://plugin.video.youtube,return)</onclick> 
       
<visible>Skin.HasSetting(Menu_Custom3)</visible
   </
item

* Ok

So the orange lines are the lines you changed.

What about the item ID # (in red) is that changed as well?

I will try that.

Does this leave " A Youtube Icon on the home screen?

Sorry for late reply. Yes It should leave a shortcut / Icon on the mainmenu.

Heres a really nice backdrop I'm using:

Have fun with YouTube in XBMC! Smile
