Vintage Theme from Meedio

Gimme the chance and I'll be using that movie-specific icon feature in a second.

Presumably, all it would take for the 720p/1080p icons would be a function that returned the width of the picture. You couldn't do height as the aspect ratios change. Audio format would be a piece of cake, surely, as would the availability of subtitles.

I ran Meedio since it first came out and ran its predecessor (myHTPC) before that. It is a great HTPC program but the tweaks and setup just got to be too much for me. I'm a geek at heart, but sometimes I like some things to just be easy. XBMC made things much easier for me and I enjoy it much more.

No such feature yet, ...but it has been requested before, see:
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=30419

Go to that topic-thread to '1+' it and voice your opionion Wink

I doo think it would be very usefull, suggested here:

Great that it would be platform-independent and controller-hardware independent Cool

I've been working on a 'Alpha' type browsing which works in some phones. The Idea is dou hit 2 once and it filters A a second time B 3rd C 4th 2. It would work in the show listing area to cut down on significant numbers of shows to quickly find something.

I feel the filiter/search areas are clunky when using a remote and as such never use them. But when I want lost and i can hit 5 3 times and then scroll maybe once to it that seems much quicker.

Also the more advanced version of this is of course to find lost do 5-6-7-8 and then have the software find matches with the combination of those 15 letters (JKL/MNO/PQRS/TUV) which should also be decently simple. Though of course by the time you press 5-6 lost should be the only show remaining or very near it.

I dunno I though this type of navigation would be much more usefull to using xbmc with a remote. Especially when you have 300 movies and 70 shows.

This skin is absolutely amazing. I mean no disrespect to any XBMC skin or author, but this skin, IMHO, is better than anything we have. And we have some damn nice skins! It is totally my style

Don't forget those of us who use the XBMC on the Xbox by remote only. I never use the controller and I have over 650 movies so I would kill to have alpha browsing.

tnx Smile

I've been working on movies fanart support:
- I made ~400 fanart images (all 1920x1080) mostly for movies in my library and they are currently loaded from fanart folder located in MeedioData folder
- images are named based on IMDb ID number so there would be no duplicates
  • e.g.
    The Departed = tt0407887.jpg
- maybe this could be useful for XBMC (as far as I can tell Aeon skin could use them as backdrops right out of the box)...
