I have added, for next update, a setting to disable fanart opacity in fullscreen mode.

Thanks for the setting and the guidance on shin helper service... posted over there with the extrafanart issue. Will test music fanart after next release

Make sure you have added your own API key in Skin Helper settings too.

You need to be a developper and have application use API.

Api keys is needed for some parts like movies sets plots, ratings on video info etc...

And now Artwork Downloader need your own API keys for working; see : https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid2618265

What is OMDB used for specifically? It looks like they are requiring Patron donations for new keys and will be invalidating all legacy keys at some point: https://www.patreon.com/posts/api-is-going-10743518 & http://www.omdbapi.com/

It's $1 / mo, so not a big deal, but the only place I'd use it is kodi.

Thanks
