Mod -  Estuary ATF
#1
his is just my own personal Tweaked version of Estuary called "Estuary ATF" (Advance Things Forward)...

Concept
This won't be a bloated Mod...!
I want to maintain the speed and simplicity of Estuary, while adding new features for Music and Live TV to try and push those features forward.
I am happy to PR any feature tweaks back to mainline if wanted.

Features so far
- Music Star Ratings on list view [Master PR not accepted]
- Revert to music Video square images [Master PR not accepted]
- LiveTV slim list
- Artist Wide Thumb View
- 3 x Wide TVShow Banner View
- Centralized Shift View

Future Plan Ideas
- Set default to Orange Theme [Done]
- Change monochrome icons to full color [mockup / source] [Done]
- Add new Music Tags to details view
- Make music visualization smaller
- Improve Music Lyrics embedded instead of popup
- Add album reviews
- Add music logos/banners/clearart [Done]
- A-Z music Jukebox (possibly using skin helper Add-on) [like this mockup / Source]
- Beautiful Various Artist music Fanart [mockup]
- Live TV Dreambox style channel browser [mockup / Source] [Done]
- Live TV icon style channel browser [Estuary mod / Source]

Sounds great!

It would be nice, if skin users could choose their own favorite skin color.

Love the A-Z music Jukebox mock-up.
Would be great if the same concept could be done for Music Videos as well Smile

 Yep its fantastic.

But you can use nodes for music videos I think and create an A-Z view already using that technique, or smart playlists.

Agree this would be nicer though. Kodi really falls down on large collections at the moment because of this.

Yes, that looks great. Is that A-Z View also available for movies. I have a lot of movies.

 At the moment, the only way this is possible is to use the skin helper Add-on, which I don't really want to be depenendent on.

I think its best to wait until someone integrates mutiple lists in one view feature request into the Kodi master (instead of an Add-on).

EDIT: actually that already seems possible, its the A-Z functionality which needs the helper Add-on.

Wow thats very nice!

I have recently seen a dreambox skin based on Estuary out there, I wonder if that has anything to do with it.

Gives good inspiration anyway!

Cool, glad you like it. Hope you can make something of it, stock Estuary isn´t my first choice for live tv.
Epg info plot on every channel zap is not nice, hard to read anyway. Better to have a info window with epg info.

Also a mini timeline epg would be nice

I started with some coloured media flags for audio channels/audio codec/video resolution

If anyone has a nicer 5.1 icon let me know, not really happy with the current one yet.

2nd attempt at a slimlist Live TV Channel browser...

Hopefully it replicates the dreambox channel listing that I used to love. Much easier to browse lots of channels now!

Nice ! Maybe make ”next” bigger and add plot? A lot of black space is wast so maybe they can share the window 50/50 Smile
