Installed latest release, video playlist sort function "Last Played" still not selecting.  I can workaround by changing skins and editing the playlist, but just wanted to flag it.

Thanks

RE: S W A N (alpha , updated September-2021) - kobyboy - 2021-09-30

Thank you for your nice skin. Question how do you get Artist Slideshow to show while playing music ? I see the player controls and a blueish color in center of screen but no artist slide show 
Thanks in advanced.


RE: S W A N (alpha , updated September-2021) - roysmith - 2021-10-01

I am sorry for the dumb question.I just want to display one background on my Home screen.No cycling of different ones and no animation.How can I achieve this please ?

It should be enabled by default.
May need to get over adcancedsettings.xml
for musicartwork, or check the native artwork section in
settings - media - music -> artwork (matrix only)..

At least it should cycle between album thumb and artist fanart if exist.

Sorry again but I have now tried every setting in the Backgrounds option and none appear to stop the rotating backgrounds on the Home screen.


RE: S W A N (alpha , updated September-2021) - roysmith - 2021-10-02

This problem for me seems to be when the Tiles option is chosen.

RE: S W A N (alpha , updated September-2021) - roysmith - 2021-10-02

That does not work when the Home screen is in MenuTiles mode.

Indded it wasnt intended, may i add option soon.
(currently you can use a custom image path which contains just 1 wished bg image , to circumstance the rotating multiimages)


RE: S W A N (alpha , updated September-2021) - sasquatchjaques - 2021-10-07

Any chance you can replicate the plex interface where the background changes to the colours / blur dependent on the image in spotlight - think it looks really nice
Great work 👍🏻


RE: S W A N (alpha , updated September-2021) - mardukL - 2021-10-07

Unsure if you mean something like that, than its already in.
if blur is enabled, you ll become an extra setting for enable them in spotlight views.
has a bug ,though...when browse to another media type which dont use spotloght which i didnt resolve right now.
