yeah who knows, but I dont see it main stream , I was inspire by the way networks like tbs put shows ads overlay during some shows, of course theirs are video overlays this are images but you get the idea..I dont know it looks cool and different.

Thanks man !
It would be a good idea to have a command so the image can be call like VideoPlayer.clearart , instead of all the code necessary to make this work (you need to match every show title and display an image accordingly )

I already submit a ticket for VideoPlayer.fanart
It should be possible to name the cleararts : Dexter-clearart.png and implement the code :
<info>$INFO[ListItem.TVShowTitle]-clearart.png</info> inside a control in the dialogseekbar and dialogfullscreeninfo.xml...
it wont show up since the video its already playing and theres any listitem, I already try that and only this works.
PHP Code:
<texture>clearArt/dexter.png</texture>
<
visible>VideoPlayer.Content(episodes) + substring(VideoPlayer.TVShowTitle), Dexter</visible
could you give me the code you made for now ?

And let's anticipate !
Here's Caprica, the frakkin' new show !

the cut of the sides looks weird because no frame, is easier if the cut is in the bottom.

I will post it later, but is the same as the code in the mod, I just replace the image name and in:
Code:
<texture diffuse="thumbs/movieposter_mask.png">path to the clearArt</texture>
replace it with
Code:
<texture>path to the clearArt</texture>
