Display Fanart Pellucid v2.3 Kodi Matrix v19.0
#1
Just updated to Kodi Matrix v19.0 and then installed Pellucid v2.3 from GitHUb. Running on Nvidia Shield TV with Shield Experience 8.2.1

Noticed no fanart displayed for Movies, Muisc, TV Shows etc. I've searched to find the setting to enable this but must be missing something. Anyone got any ideas what I'm missing please?

Resolved - not available in the skin. So added in myself.

Would you share your solution? I would also like do add in for Kodi 18.7; somehow for TV shows they are shown if you are in the folder.

I have customized Pellucid for my needs that you can find on my github. The reason I changed to Pellucid was because my shield forced an update to Kodi 19 and my old skin didn't work. I first changed to Arctic Zephyr Reloaded but it felt to heavy for my taste and then I found Pellucid. I like that it isn't so bloated, but I still missed some elements which is why I changed it a bit. Later I reverted back to 18.9 since playback is problematic on the shield with 19, but I did keep Pellucid as my skin. The only thing missing in 18.9 is that it doesn't have chapters in the seekbar which was added in the Kodi 19 skinning engine.

I'm not a skinner so I have no idea if this will work on other systems, but here are some screenshots (the screenshots are from my testing kodi instance on my PC so I didn't scrape my 'normal' tv show library and don't have anything to show):

Changes:
- Homescreen has random fanart from Movies/TV Shows https://rmrector.github.io/script.artwor...onfreefun/
- Added Logo's to the movie and tvshow view
- Added imdb rating to the movie, tvshow and episode view https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=316342
- Episode view uses fanart now and will loop through them if you have more than 1 (every 15 secs iirc) https://rmrector.github.io/script.artwor...onfreefun/
- Video info screen shows imdb rating and resolution now
- Also changed font to standard roboto because I didn't like the look of the other one
- Added Chapters in the video osd.

A thing to add though is that I use smartplaylists as sources for movies, so that I can have my 4K movies and 1080p or lower movies seperate.

This looks great.... How do I install? I'm a novice 🤓 do I install from a zip file somewhere?
