All was working good but now Kodi crash when I enter in libraries and select an item with no theme.mp3 file. When I disable this option all is working good.

I have just checked your mod v2.9.9 with the latest nightly (24/05) and there's no problem for me (windows 64 bits). However I have noticed that the former visual glitch reappears when no theme.mp3 is present; to prevent this you could change the line in DialogBusy.xml from...
<onload condition="String.Contains(Player.Filenameandpath,theme.mp3) + !Skin.HasSetting(MusicTheme)">Dialog.Close(all,true)</onload>
to...
<onload condition="[String.Contains(Player.Filenameandpath,theme.mp3) | !String.IsEmpty(Window(home).Property(PlayingOST))] + !Skin.HasSetting(MusicTheme)">Dialog.Close(all,true)</onload>

 That change nothing.... I'm on OSX.

EDIT : Confirmed by other people on Android builds too.

I'd like to make clear some things though...

- My only aim is to help others sharing something that works for me and that allows to enjoy a feature that I missed a lot, but I don't say that this is the perfect solution for everybody; for me (windows-64 bits Leia Alpha nightlies) works well, I don't have other systems, so I don't know about them...

- The main advantage is that it doesn't require the use of additional addons. The main disadvantage is related to the limited options that the skinning engine offers, namely, it's not possible to check beforehand whether a theme.mp3 file exists or not, therefore even if a movie/tvshow doesn't have a theme.mp3 file in its folder this code tries to play that file anyway at least once; it this case an error is written in the kodi log. In my system this is the only shortcoming, but with other OS your mileage may vary...

- I'm the first one that don't like imperfect solutions, so I made a feature request some days ago in the forum to solve this once and for all (https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=332159), but it seems not to have arisen much interest (to be honest zero interest...), so we'll have to make do with this for the time being...

  I love your skins ....
    I am currently using eminence in kodi 17, in an android box ....
    I'm looking for an alternative to tvtunes. Do you think it would work in your skin in the android box?

will no playback information be displayed?

    the ideal is not to display anything ... only the background audio ....


@manfeed 

  Thank you for sharing this solution !!

I keep on trying to improve this, but to no avail... I have made another feature request https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=332612 that if granted could allow to use mp3/flac files and even to play more than one theme for each movie/tvshow.

I *think* now you're getting into realms of 'this is why we have python' to check for file rather than relying on XML.
It isn't up to the GUI (XML) to make decisions when a codebase exists.

If you want to make a python script, PM me, and we'll go from there.

The TVTheme (speeling) is banned because it *downloaded illegal content*.

Personally, I really wanted to play my songs .... I can ... with the banned ... for him he sees the reproduction information does not get legal ...
I'm not something native, that does not exhibit anything ...
  Each one seeks his thema ... I do not think so will be banned ...

1. That is not a problem, is on purpose; pausing is much quicker than full stop, and that way you get seamless browsing. When it's time to start another theme then the player is told to full stop and start the new theme.

2. Unfortunately this is the drawback of this method, nothing can be done through xml to check whether a file exists or not. I already said it in the thread.
