Beta Artwork Beef - automatically add extended artwork
#30
I have updated Artwork Helper to version 0.7.0 (installable zip). This version adds a couple more plugin paths to gather multiple artwork: one for Containers that works much like the existing ListItem path, and smartseries that avoids flipping fanart by keeping the path the same when navigating between a TV show, its seasons, and its episodes, keeping navigation smooth.

Estuary multiple fanart mod
To go along with Artwork Helper, I've put together a quick and dirty modification of Estuary (from just after Kodi 17 beta 3) that displays multiple fanart in the background. This is just a demo and example for changes necessary for skins to integrate multiple artwork, it is not for regular use. This modification affects the background fanart and prefers "parent" artwork like Container art or `tvshow.fanart`, while the main fanart in the Fanart view stays the single `fanart` image from the focused ListItem, which looks nice with episode fanart. To see it in action you can download and install this multiple fanart mod zip, which will live happily beside (and uninstall cleanly from) the original Estuary.

Skinners should take a look at the changes for basic support for changes required to display this artwork on MyVideoNav/MyMusicNav, the other changes for home support for additional changes made for Home window support, and the Artwork Helper README for more details on each path.
