it does seem like it is now feasible to re-implement most of the functionality using MusicVisualisation.Xml and native xbmc calls, but the amount of information you pull from last.fm (and multiple artist images) is what really makes the script.
smoother integration with existing skin ui and xbmc workflow is all that is really missing. might even overcome my hatred of python and white space sensitivity and drop it at some point.
(working perfectly on ubuntu 8.11, though the image scaling and font scaling is a little odd on 40" 1080p display)
Interesting, I have a 42in 1080p and it looks good. But like I said, the code is pretty rough. Personally, python and its tabs can kiss my .... But, it is cool that you can do things like this in XBMC, and it makes since for it to use python. Thanks for the feedback! I hope someone better with python than myself can improve on the design, or someone can integrate it with a skin to make it more fluid!
