ArtistSlideshow scaling image size
#1
Hi
Absolute Kodi newbie here

I am trying to get ArtistSlideshow to display my personal pictures while playing music

I can get the slides showing but they are not "shrunk" to the correct aspect for the display.

Advice on the ArtistSlideshow forum is that I need to edit the MusicVisualization.xml width, height, aspect parameters

<control type="multiimage">
<left>0</left>
<top>0</top>
<width>100%</width>
<height>100%</height>
<imagepath colordiffuse="88FFFFFF" background="true">$INFO[Window(Visualisation).Property(ArtistSlideshow)]</imagepath>
<aspectratio>keep</aspectratio>
<timeperimage>10000</timeperimage>
<fadetime>2000</fadetime>
<randomize>true</randomize>
<animation effect="fade" start="0" end="100" time="400">WindowOpen</animation>
<animation effect="fade" start="100" end="0" time="300">WindowClose</animation>
<visible>System.HasAddon(script.artistslideshow) + String.IsEqual(Window(Visualisation).Property(ArtistSlideshow.ArtworkReady),true​)</visible>
</control>

I have found the Music Visualisation.xml file but need help in what specific parameters I need to change as there is no <control type="multiimage">
section I can see

Many thanks

Artist slideshow is already supported.

You need to enable it in skin settings (art management) and toggle it in the fullscreen music player screen (the small man icon).

Many thanks .. I have Artist Slideshow working ..

The issue is that when I display my personal slides (using the Override option in Artist Slideshow)

The slides are not scaled to screen size (this means you see only part of the image as it does not fir to screen)

The author of Artist Slideshow has told me I need to modify the aspect ratio, width and height as in the above xml script ..

Unfortunately this does not exist in the MusicVisualisation.xml that comes with your skin hence the question on what I need ti change

Cheers

The multiimage control you are looking for is here:

Legend ...

For those who want to do the same ...
<aspectratio aligny="top">keep</aspectratio>

Means original image size is kept ...

I also have to turn the Background Transparency down to 0 so it does not affect the slide image

Is there a way to also make the "now playing" bar at the bottom "fade" when in fullscreen mode?

Cheers

Yeah, the option in skin settings "Disable overlay in fullscreen music player" is not working. Now it's ok in the latest version on Github.

To remove the now playing bar you need to go to:

https://github.com/Tgxcorporation/skin.c...ar.xml#L23

and remove line 23.

Thanks

Got it ,, changed and works great ..

More questions (wearing out your patience here) ...

In the pop up box that displays in the middle of the screen. (temporarly) the middle shows album title, duration, song title etc... the right hand side shows the album art .

The left hand panel shows "No Information Available" what is supposed to show here?

The artist bio or the album review.

Again many thanks

Will have to figure out how to make that work (ArtistSlideshow settings)

Hey Tgx
For my birthday I was given an NVIDIA Shield .. I am now trying to get this working on that box.

Unfortunately even though I have enabled the option in the Chroma skin it does not show slideshows.

It would appear that Artist Slideshow is not actually running even though I choose RUN from the menu.

Is there a special trick to getting this working on NVIDIA (Android) boxes?

Cheers

Hey Tgx
False alarm .. managed to get it running (I think it was due to not have Script.Helper installed)

Second question ... in the previous mods I have changed the behaviour of the skin in Windoze..

Is there a recommended method for editing the files in the Android world?

Cheers

Use a text editing app on Android or upload the modified file through USB and an Android file manager

Many thanks Tgx..

Managed to figure out how to share the Android over the net .. means I can see the skin files from Windows and can copy modified files that way .

Reboot and voila.

Now trying to figure out how to make the screenshow start automatically when I hit play on a track .. (at the moment I have to manually navigate to the Player view to see the slides)

Cheers

Skin settings -> Playback -> go fullscreen on music playback

Woops .. fixed (forgot about that setting as the Nvidia is "fullscreen" when it runs anyway)
