"cdArt" concept - current cdImage with artist fanart support in music visualizations - reaven - 2009-06-20 22:35
This new "cdArt" concept displays an animation of the currently playing CD (Compact Disc) image spinning, with music artist fanart slideshow support in the music visualization screen when visualizations is set to off.
Few YouTube videos examples that show this spin animation effect in action:

Cool idea. Looks really nice. Is there any webpage to get good CD images?

I use Album Art Downloader which is a very nice tool.
And btw nice idea for this mod. Hope there will be more images for this mod soon.

Ok this may be a bit embarrassing but I can't find my way to the music visualization screen anymore. Have I gone blind or something? I haven't used it for a while but I have already used it in the past and now I just can't find it anymore.
Would be glad if someone could point me into the right direction.

Cant make this to work *sigh*. Either fanart slide or cd art doesnt show up.
Here i my set up:
aeon auriga/media/backdrops/artist_fanart/whitesnake/restless heart.jpg (cdart) and 2 whitesnake.jpg (fanart)
First I named folder & jpgs after album name in Library mode but with no luck and after that changed whitesnake (foldername) to WHITESNAKE,Whitesnake,whitesnake same tried the same with restless Heart.
What do I do wrong?
I have the latest Auriga and XBMC win32...

first the cd art need to be .png with no background that means restless heart.png after you edit it the art.
structure would be like
files inside <artist/band name folder>
fanart images whatever name/whatever extension(.jpg, .jpeg, .png, ......)
