Layout Change for default Skin?
#1
i like the idea of viewing movie thumbnails but don't like it how the title is always cut off.

i was thinking of a slight layout change to be able to view thumbs as well as full titles and maybe some brief imdb info.

3 mins latest in photoshop here is a possible idea?

what do people think?

or a more simpler option (probs better).

i have never skinned but i was just wondering what people thought about a change in the layout. maybe we can take this somewhere - or if people are interested i can looking at putting it together myself.

personally, i love the latter mockup (w/o the plot info). very nice and i'd like to see this implemented.

p.s. maybe remove the date from showing one of the times.

yeah using larger thumbs you could have 2 movies per page with nice big thumbs and brief info to the right.

slight update:

oh alright then :d

imagine you boot up xbmc, in the background it looks at your video shares and lists your 3 newest movies, queries imdb for their proper names and poster art, creates thumbnails and displays all this information on your home-screen...
