I really like your work with the new default skins and would love start using them but...

Please consider my two request to make the skin better:

1. Add the subtitle icon directly into the OSD (where you have play, pause etc). I use subtitles on about 90% of every movie and TV episodes and now it is several clicks away to get to the download function and hidden under settings icon, that seams strange because to me this is not a setting.

2. Add function so you can add Tags on a movie, today you are only able to add movies to a Tag. For me it makes more sense to add meta information on the object (Tags on a movie) and the functionality would be easier to use (especially if you have search-as-you-type so you only need to enter one or to chars and then can select the right tag)

1) is already done and will be available on next sync.
2) is related to core and not a skin issue. I´m the wrong person to ask. Wink

There's too much background image. This skin should be content first. A background image is just aesthetic. We could reduce that empty space by 50% to get more of what's important, which is pictures and text describing the content we are looking at.

There's nothing wrong with having some open space, but in this case, there's too much open space. The open space should be reduced in order to better display what's important. The text boxes and pictures are too small. By reducing the open space by 33%-50% you will get a much better display of information.
First congratulations, the Skin is beautiful, modern, user friendly, fast.

I think that would be very useful, especially to all those who have a large library constantly updated, instantly have the possibility to show a complete overview of all the technical characteristics of the video file. Maybe not by default but in a optional way.

I refer not only to duration, resolution, audio codec, audio channels, already present in the skin, but also the video codec, the mb size, the original video source of the files (B-ray, DVD, TV, HDTV); the file audio languages and the subtitles presents in the file or already downloaded.

However, I understand that it may not be possible for various reasons, technical and non-technical. My want to be just a suggestion, and certainly not a criticism of the great work already done.

Thanks for adding the subtitle thing, and will see if I post my tagging suggestion in another thread.
Would it be an idea to group a show in latest added episodes?
Mainly I just wish I didn't fill up this menu when I add a new show or season.
Firstly, thanks to Phil65, Piers and ronie and all the Kodi Dev's for their hard work, this skin feels like a real step forward for Kodi.

Secondly something that appears to have been hinted at (post #3 and a few others) is a way of getting more information from the video tiles on the home screen to keep continuity with the rest of the interface.

With the focus of Estury shifting more too video tiles on the home page the current method of immediately playing the video upon selecting becomes a problem (in my largely uninformed opinion) in situations of either large libraries or new users who might see something they like the look of on the home screen but don't have enough information to make an informed decision. A simple solution might be for the links on the home page to take the user to the movie's information page (a la Netflix, Sky or Amazon interfaces) rather than playing it immediately.

Keep up the good work!

my viewing distance to tv is 3 x picture diagonal and the text is very hard to read/ fonts are a little to small.
I use Kodi to host 3D bluray rips so I don't have to put the disc in my drive every time, have them stored on my server. It would be nice to have a 3D flag for the media, I saw one in the videos but it is no where to be found in the real version. Also I did not see a dialogue to "Play Using" I have a script I run to play 3DMKV content through stereoscopic player and would like that context menu back. Only wish Kodi natively supported frame packed 3DMKV files.

This is what I'm talking about. Cramming the information in the middle with all that open space around it does not make for a comfortable viewing experience. The text boxes are way too small.
If we could get the artist option in music to show the tag (Album Artist) instead, then in a sub folder show Artist flagged music in a folder titled (Featured on or Miscellaneous) or something to that effect it will keep the clutter down in the artist view. Rap music has a lot of artists some times, and having an entry of Big Stan then one of Big Stan/DMX/Drag-On/Loose/Kasino is a bit much. Eminem has so many entries it's ridiculous, but if I could go to Eminem then see the other songs he helped on that would be awesome.
I for one love the new look, was trying to see if there was a away to enable a watched flag on TV / Movies. Is there a setting tucked away somewhere. makes it easier for to see whats been watched.

I see on some views this flag is shown, I'm using shift view.
