Full Version: Movie fanart diaporama
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hello all, sorry to disturb you but I have a question (doesn't matter if there is no solution for it but that will be sad ...) :
I have latest version of Kodi 18 with default skin and movies scrapped from default "themoviedatabase" scrapper
My movies are showed on "Fanart" viewtype and I wonder if there is a way to show every fanart (every X seconds or whatever) like a diaporama and not just one in this viewtype ?
Thank you
Hello @nmou88

If you are using the default skin Estuary, then there is no option for a slideshow of background fanart while browsing the library. Estuary has been designed to be as light and option free as possible.

You should experiment with the other available skins as most of them do have slideshow background fanart. If you like the Estuary skin, try the Estuary Mod version which, I believe, is able to do that.

If you like displaying the fanart images, install the Picture Slideshow Screensaver... Add-onTongueicture_Slideshow_Screensaver and it will display a slideshow of your movie and tvshow or music fanart when Kodi is not in use.
I don't want slideshow of "background" fanart, I want slideshow of simple fanart when I select a movie like this :

We can see fanart at right
I don't want "background" ...
So ?
Not possible with Estuary currently and AFAICS there's no add-on for it

Conversely , is it possible to disable background fanart when scrolling widgets on home screen ?, the option to turn off fanart in skin settings doesn't do this?
Ok I tested Estuary MOD v2 and didn't found any option to do what I want ...
No solution yet ?

you can set slideshow
 <control type="multiimage" >
<description>fanart backdrop</description>
<left>48</left>
<right>46</right>
<top>115</top>
<!-- <width>600</width> -->
<height>600</height>
<visible>true</visible>
<imagepath>$INFO[ListItem.Path]</imagepath>
<timeperimage>2000</timeperimage>
<fadetime>2000</fadetime>
<pauseatend>2000</pauseatend>
<randomize>true</randomize>
<loop>yes</loop>
<aspectratio align="center" aligny="bottom">scale</aspectratio>
</control>

 only drawback is it shows all images in the folder and you need to get all the fanart
