Is it possible to display the artist fanart?
#1
Hello.

I use musicvideo,the artist category.(view-fanart)
Is it possible to display the artist fanart?
(displayed as "Eden"? artist list and album list)
For example,in the case of a simple directory below.

Music Video > G.NA > fanart.jpg (MUSIC-ARTIST fan-art)
> > G.NA - Beautiful Day.mp4
> > G.NA - Beautiful Day.nfo
> > G.NA - Beautiful Day.tbn
> > G.NA - Oops!.mp4
> > G.NA - Oops!.nfo
> > G.NA - Oops!.tbn

and nfo blow. (Ex. G.NA - Beautiful Day.mp4.nfo)
------------------------------
<musicvideo>
<title>Beautiful Day</title>
<artist>G.NA</artist>
<album>Video Clips</album>
<genre>Kpop</genre>
</musicvideo>
------------------------------
Of course,following fanart is possible in Frodo and Gotham (at title list),
fanart.jpg or extrafanart or G.NA - Beautiful Day-fanart.jpg(title-fanart)

There is another question.
Gotham is an alpha version yet, can not display the artist directly, (HomeMenu>MusicVideo>SubMenu(artist))
or is a bug in the xbmc-core? Or Gotham does not support the artist directly?
