That's HomeNetflix (did not change view523 at all), but I can make a separate variable so that user can choose details outlook, on that all details topic - 
The way it is set right now is that plot and details are all retrieved by PlotAlt var. This is not modular enough I think and so I really should change that variable to be details & plot and then I can make the details var in seperate (which I already did), and then another detail layout which like the original/custom, so when the PlotAlt is called it will return details based on user's choice/viewtype...


- maybe you like to change the • to a | than :;-)
Yeah, probably just blank space if doing it netflix style, Got some ideas there, inc. an image of rating/video quality, etc. but not a priority.

- i prefer the ratings trough the footer, so we should add a condition to the var , and make a skintogglesetting
( !skinhassetting***, skinhassetting***)
Yeah, footer is something need to be dealt with on homescreen cause of resizing not compatible with a footer as of right now.
Best easy option would be to choose where stars are at, if they're like in my screenshot (and your netflix viewtype), then won't be in footer and then u'll have the options for other ratings instead (tvdb, rotten, etc...)
About resizing the homescreen - is something I really want to change, make the spotlight area bigger and netflix widgets lanscape smaller (I know i can use big/small thumbs option but this in not what i seek).


2. Trailer
- widgets, can be adjustet with an conditional ("Player.HasVideo" ) animation , but where should the go?
(But i must say i like the windowed one, and since we are in home screen, we just need click back to watch in fs)
,what about adding additional info of focused item right beside the landscape Widget if trailer window should stay that way like in your pic

- do mean right corner texture the videowindow? , its added in the gdrive file(link above, add3d wrong files yesterday,updated today the correct ones)
I've taken a look at what u've done just now, looks great, I think we speaking of different things though. You meant that u added an animation for the right corner texture image to move when playing trailer? I meant the the video window itself would load on the right corner texture and thus won't have this ugly borders, meaning - a texture on top of the video window. But not even sure if it's possible. So a workaround will be fullscreen, and btw, for me if I go back from a video it doesn't show on homescreen, just playing in the background (that is not a good behavior btw either - i think that when BACK is pressed when osd is not one it should stop playing and go back to the last windows that was active). Now i'm thinking if possible to change the window height (animated) of the spotlight&widgets rows when playing full-screen, so from two rows u'll see only one when playing thus making full screen work ok and not have widgets on half of the screen...

3.ADDED SPOTLIGHT WIDGET

- i dont know how it should work since i never used it, should there be other additional infos ( i just remember the spotlight widget in arctic z from ashes, and they just show some random movies inside)
- what should spotlight do other than default? ( just can look via phone on the code till monday and its horrible to read even if "quick edit" app is best by now)
- are the button (play, info) added by you? , looks interesting but arent we acces play via click and info via context or am i wrong

The idea is that I want to create a spotlight single widget that defaults when homescreen is loading, and so it SPOTLIGHTS a certain movie\tvshow\(new episode?), and automatically starts playing it's trailer\teaser. this is the actual original use of the spotlight in netflix, that they use to push new/recommended content.
A movie will load the clearlogo and start playing in home, with buttons for play and more info (only showing for spotlight widget). So it's some sort of suggestion push to the user and also is slick way of an opener screen. I added the buttons but there's some problem with the container property there that i just can't figure out..that makes show info think that it's on Home menu and thus not work (play works though). I'm trying to trace the root from where the widget and spotlight are controlled but no success, I'm not sure how much is in xml and how much (if any) is from the scripts themselves.


4. Episode,
What is on my to list is change eg uppercase S1E4 to lowecase s1e2
That's easy, on homewidgets just removing [UPPERCASE]. i Actually preffered leaving it this way since it's the most important info for ep. i thought.
Beside that, im usure if the full should stay like in your pic, or put the nr & title below the clearart/ above the star rating, so its possible to use flags (country, writer as example instead of epis. Nr and title)
Again, I think some modulation (as i said seperating the var parts and creating additional custom details vars) would be then easy to implement in everyway possible once the design is decided.

5. TV SHOW with more than one season , or just one
- i really like to say perfect, but i would prefer independet of content ,it should be
" ** Seasons (** Episodes)
A thing to consider when doing so is the cases when there is one season then u'll get "1 Seasons" , same with episodes.

6. Thats surely possible,
331570 (thread)
THAT IS AWSOME, I WANT THE CODE. 
@irafihggnaba  can you please share your mod? that's exactly what I was looking for. And can build on top instead of having to do it all from scratch.

But i also play with the idea of changig how tv show hub, movie hub works, actually they just load the netflix2 window, with default widget layout oft home setting.
So i think there is some more potential in it.
Please enlighten me on what the hubs actually do, did not get what their purpose is.

I see you fixed to the netflix ui, what i like is mod this skin by keeping a bit of its own style/flair and it offers much customization.
If you didnt care about color-, homescreen- , theme-, -customizations, didnt use different viewtypes, we are better going on another skin project.the advantage of that is that its going to be cleaner ,smaller and get better a bit performance.
OK, so TL;DR - yes, I love the netflix UI.
I'm a new member on the forums, but i've known and used kodi (back then, xbmc) for a VERY longgg time, so, at first I loved it and wanted it have every little info and addon and ability there could be. Over the time, I've used and tried almost every streaming service (netflix, hulu, amazon, hbo, ...) and media manager (kodi, plex, emby, ...) there is on the market and learnt the strength and weakness of each. From a user prespective netflix is def a game changer, not speaking of content here.

1. UI - one of the things I noticed is how good netflix ui is in terms of making the media accessible to the user in terms of - easy to use and that you don't spend much time having to "choose" what media you want, it pushes you to start watch new things (that are new/recommended). I can have so much more content on kodi but then when i open the netflix it just makes the media more appealing and not stagnating on which to choose, etc.
Also, i've learned that having too much information is not needed, for example, on netflix you don't even have ratings (just % match), then if a movie for ex. would have low ratings on kodi it would make u less wanting to watch it, but on netflix, you may watch it without knowing what others think of it, and like it (happened many times). Time and weather i think holds u out from fully be "in the moment" feel that u get in netflix, disconnecting from the outer world, that makes you keep on binging (this is the core purpose the ui is built for in netflix, keep u watching, with the nextup, and skip recaps, you can just lie down and keep drooling in front of the screen, no action needed).
About the ease-of-use, I noticed that for my not-tech-oriented girlfriend it's much easier to use netflix and can struggle with kodi even after all is set up and in kiosk mode.
So yeah, main changes would be to create the dialoginfo, then viewtype for tvshows (all episodes window), and osd while playing. other than that is aesthetics, auto-trailer/teaser/something playing on screen.

2. Smooth ride - unfortunately, kodi falls short here, and it's not so-much a skinning issue and more a core behavior. Note that netflix works smoothly and flawlessly and is snappy and fast. Kodi on the other hand could be very slow at times and even when playing from my network share (nfs) it sometimes not as stable as netflix(that is ONLINE) or plex. that's have something to do with it being a media manager and not a frontend and backend kind of app, sometimes it's so bad that i have to close kodi and open the plex to watch instead. But while plex is closed-source and thus skinning is not an option, kodi is open to change and so to solve this, I think that after making all the changes it will be best to delete all else and so it won't have to load so much to memory (space memory) and less var and stuff to look at (running time performance). Biggest issue i'm dealing with currently with kodi AND IT HAPPENS EVERYTIME, is that a clearlogo or info just gets stuck in there and then shows up on other movies, tvshows. Also kodi is very laggy on tv android platforms (maybe not on shield, didn't test that platform) and less artwork would definately improve on that, and less cache storing (?).

3. smart algorithms - this is the biggest thing that marcel achieved in my opinion, to create a layout (homescreen) that gathers all media types and treats them as one.
and of course the smart widgets (reccomendations, similliar media). This is a GREAT step toward making a smarter UI, and would be the hardest thing to achieve. I would gladly take a look at the scripts and better them if i can, but this would be the last thing on the list. since it's a all other beast to deal with. first thing would be to make a suggestion algorithm for the spotlight widget that i want to add - that will be based on reccommendation and/or new release and/or popular.
Other than that is creating a how much a X media matches to your liking (##% match), which would be based upon watching history and a custom list ("my list") - and then using the favourite/custom list would be actually useful added with a like/unlike (my rating) button - that so far are really not so useful.That for me would be the best part as it is purely coding pseudo-"machine learining" algorithms.


So i like to work on more viewtypes,bugfixes,implement manfeeds library theme playback(non addon tv tunes replacement),make contry flags for lib and osd and some things more...
These are all great ideas and I also got many more on top of what I already said here, we need some to open a github so that we could do it in an organized fashion.TV tunes sounds easy to implement, it's just playing an audio file, not an addon that i'm excited about but let me know if u're working on it, I would love to take a glance at it.
