If you want it as part of the cycling fanart then put it in the extarfanart folder also...

I'm writing a fanart fetcher for TMDB and would like to know the file/folder structure for extrafanart detection for movies. I know that you can have each movie in its own folder with the extrafanart folder in each. Is it possible to have all movies in one folder with an extrafanart folder containing extra art for all movies in the root folder?

It would be great if your skin could detect fanart from a structure like:
Code:
|--moviefolder
   |--movie1.mkv
   |--movie2.mkv
   |--extrafanart
      |--movie1-fanart1.mkv
      |--movie1-fanart2.mkv
      |--movie1-fanart1.mkv
      |--movie2-fanart2.mkv

      |--movie1-fanart1.mkv
      |--movie2-fanart2.mkv

This would actually result in issues from most scripts and skins. Most skins expect:
Code:
moviesfolder
|---movie A
     |---movie_A.mkv
     |---fanart.jpg
     |---extrafanart
           |---fanart1.jpg
           |---fanart2.jpg
           |---fanart3.jpg
           |---fanart4.jpg
|---movie B
     |---movie_B.mkv
     |---fanart.jpg
     |---extrafanart
           |---fanart1.jpg
           |---fanart2.jpg
           |---fanart3.jpg
           |---fanart4.jpg

      |--movie2-fanart2.mkv

As GJones mentioned, this would create all kinds of headaches in the end. Best practice is to have each movie in its own folder.

Thanks for the feedback. I've updated my script to use the standard naming scheme.

what about changing behavior for horizontal home with recently\random script?
let's say you on tv shows.
up: focus widget (instead open sub menu now)
and once you in sub menu, up close sub menu (now it's jump straight to widget)

Alrighty looked at how Aeon does it, seems doable but I'll get to it after I release this version as I don't want any errors on this upload...


**EDIT**

Able to use a <group> and link to that instead, git updated with change

Yea, the subtitle button broke with that latest version. It used to work but now goes to the settings.

EDIT: NM.. I see it's already known: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=82318

I think I grabbed the pack form stoli, you don't notice on the colored version but the monochrome it shows up. But seeing XBMC is supposed to be for 10ft away, I can let it slide for now...
