Currently Aeon MQ3 shows mine as AVC1, XVID, etc
Switching to Aeon and they appear as BluRay or DVD correctly
I think the other skin really works incorrectly as you can have HD material which has been ripped in XVID format and SD material that has been encoded in H264 so basing the cases on the encoding is wrong IMO. This has been discussed before and the general view was for the cases to be based on filename. It may take some time but labelling your movies correctly outside of XBMC has many benefits not least of all being able to search for and see at a glance exactly what resolution and type of rip the movie is outside of XBMC. There are numerous batch renaming programs out there which will make life much easier for you.
I label mine as "Moive Name (YEAR) (BluRay) (1080p).mkv" for example.
Failing that, if it really is too much of a task to handle, you could ask Marcos for the exploded textures.xbt and copy the DVD and BluRay covers over to the other ones. Also you may want to try to overwrite the videocodec tags under addons\skin.aeonmq.3\media\flags\videocodec with the DVD / BluRay ones from the \media\source folder. I am not sure if that will work for the covers though. Remember to back up everyhting first!
Thanks for this! Which renaming program do you use yourself? I've used 'The renamer' before but I can't see a setting to add DVD or BluRay to the file name.
