Hi there,

Is there any way to hide the overlay windows (e.g. when updating library) when playing a movies, or TV shows or sideshow pictures? Is there any settings option for that at all? If not, I don't mind modifying the code (as I already did a bit to make "my" version of Back Row Big Grin) if I'm told where to look for it. Any help of any kind very much appreciated. Cheers!!

Hi

The skin should already be set up to supress update windows when playing a video. Might be that your custom version doesn't have the updated lines of xml.

It's this visibility condition inserted inside a controlgroup around the xml in the DialogVideoScan.xml file.

Code:
<visible>!Window.IsActive(2006) + !VideoPlayer.IsFullscreen</visible>

hi Sharpe,

Was this update applied to the skin recently? Because I didn't touch DialogVideoScan.xml in my mod and also I didn't get time to apply my mod to the recently updated version. Looking into it. Many thanks for the quick reply. Cheers!!

Oh I don't know then - I only know I don't see library updates when I'm watching a video. Is it some other kind of update you're meaning?
