Background Video in BACKGROUND
#1
What do I need to modify to make the video being viewed to appear in the background instead of a little box when exiting full screenHuh

This was the case in some older XBMC versions but the current beta doesn't allow it, as I remember some versions do/some don't

I'm having the same issue, January 09 T3CH builds works perfectly. Now it's just a solid background.

The issue I'm having is in home page. . I'm using a costume background, <colordiffuse> no longer works to make it transparent, when video is being played.

here's what my "main background overlay with scanlines and logo" layout.
Code:
        <control type="image">
            <description>background image</description>
            <posx>0</posx>
            <posy>88</posy>
            <width>720</width>
            <height>488</height>
            <texture>background-bottom.png</texture>
            <colordiffuse>CCFFFFFF</colordiffuse>
        </control>
        <control type="image">
            <description>background image </description>
            <posx>0</posx>
            <posy>443</posy>
            <width>720</width>
            <height>153</height>
            <texture>Home_Bottom.png</texture>
        </control>
        <control type="image">
            <description>background image</description>
            <posx>0</posx>
            <posy>0</posy>
            <width>720</width>
            <height>89</height>
            <texture>Background-plain.png</texture>
        </control>

Yeah this is BS, I just upgraded & encountered the change, I'm sure it's in one of the config files but rather than spending hours trying to figure it out I wouldn't mind a shortcut by someone giving me the answer :-)

Music views have also been limited, I had more views before I *upgraded* to a newer XBMC revision.

The files I edited to add the extra music views where:
3D Coverview.xml
CommonView.xml

If I can figure out how to chuck the playing video in the background I will share my modified PMIII skin.

I also see the major bugs have not been solved in the latest beta like the crash on network disconnection & file overwrite errors that have been present for years! The worst one is music pauses with local files! LOL
