Thanks Davehope! The new seekbar does make quite a difference.

Thanks Hudson_Hawk.

Yes! There's an option to disable the Ken Burns effect in Preferences -> Lithium -> Background.

Hum. I'm not quite sure why that's happening. Exactly what video plugins are you using. I simply might not have gotten around to coding support for those yet.

I suppose I could start mocking up something for wide icon users. Personally I tend to use dvd covers so it'll be a slight inconvenience re-arranging my library. I'd also probably need an option in the list views for wide-icon users as well...

How's the skin treating your xbox? I'm just runing this on my desktop and laptop and haven't seen it in action on a xbox yet.

Memory usage is to high for the xbox. The XBOX locks up regularly.
I've read that using a xpr file for the textures decreases memory usage.

I do like the path you've chosen for this skin! It could be perfect for smaller PAL and NTSC tv's. Readability is great!

Thanks for testing that out for me Bram77! It's probably a combination of the texture size and the fact that I haven't been optimized any of my code yet.

Just out of curiosity, are most of the xbox's locking up problems in the Fanart view? I think that throwing 8 720p backgrounds, masking them, resizing them, and then transforming them is probably making XBMC cry. Laugh

Since designing in a vacuum is never good I thought I'd shake the tree up a little bit and ask everybody two questions:
1) What do you not like about Lithium's interface?
2) How does Lithium measure up against your favorite interface?

I love Lithium, it's certainly up there with Rapier (or will be when it's done).

In terms of what I don't like, I'm not keen on the darker columns for episode number and watched status. There needs to be some differentiation, but not keen on the columns. Perhaps changing the color / size of the episode number and ditching the column might look better? Then maybe a subtle tick / green light for watched state?
