thank you ppic!
what would it be like if we could animate the fanart background
into short cut clips of the TV show intro! possible??!
difficult, i'm sure it's possible to re-write the script in order to fetch the first (or a random) episode from the tv show and start the playback.
next up all skins supporting this would need to add a video background in the tvshow library views.
most problematic part (read: impossible) would be the identify where the intro tune starts in an episode.
most episodes start with a 2-3 minute opening scene, before the intro kicks in.
It would have to be a defined cut file, just like the theme.mp3 - but without sound so that the theme can be played while showing the intro..
At least thats how I imagine it ... so you have theme.mp3 downloaded, and theme.mkv (silent) as well.
I'm sure there's other ways to do it as you say though. And I guess there isn't probably a website to scrape these intro's from,
would have to be created by users directly ... but, still interesting.
