This is my newest fanart view mod.

This is obviously inspired by the Mediastream fanart view.

Version 2: 2/2/2010

Added the following:

1. Extrathumbs slideshow (rolls through entire folder and displays each one)
2. Trailer window

*Alert* In order for this to work, you must do the following:

- Turn off background video under skin settings.
- You must press "stop" to stop the trailer, pressing down again will not stop it.

Version 1:

This includes the following:

- Star Rating
- Tagline
- Extrathumb
- More pronounced posters at the bottom

Install:

This gets extracted over the confluence folder but is ONLY the new view. It will overwrite the current fanart view. I will upload another file that incorporates MANY mods both mine and other peoples' if it is requested. But for now, you can go into the viewsvideolibrary.xml and copy the code into your current skin or just start fresh.

Please leave feedback. ( I try and make my mods useful for everyone )

looks awesome, ive been waiting for an "extrathumbs" view...

i like the rating under the cover art too, plus all the room for the plot outline. look forward to trying it out

edit: is there a way to show how many votes are from imdb? so where it says 7.9 it would then say (75,954) beside it?

You should look at my other mods if you like extrathumbs.

I think votes would make it look cluttered, there's enough already. Smile

Ok, maybe someone will see this and offer you some help (here's hoping!)

When will it be ready to download? Looks great!

Also, I like my fanart, would it be possible (for me) to add a small delay so the whole info pops up after say 2 seconds, so when flicking through its just fanart, pause on a movie for 2 seconds and your great info screen pops up...

Thanks

Everything is its own entity, I'm really not that good with this stuff, so I dont know if that is possible.

Also, the file is available.

Does anyone have anything they want done to it, or any suggestions? I have an update coming out soon that makes the extrathumb window a slideshow that will show all thumbs in the "extrathumbs" folder. Anything else? (besides the trailer window, I dont know how, sorry)

Can it play relaxing elevator music while i browse my movies?

nah, just kidding. Its great. (I wont ask for trailers, but I will hope for someone to help add them to this view for you)

if it can't play trailers, could it play specific music after a few secods on a movie selection if available? There are tons of movie scores out there, and if you have the extrathumbs going in a slideshow type view, I am just saying, it would be cool. Imagine selecting Jaws, the thumbnail change slides, and then DUH DUH.... DUH DUH... Smile Or any Bond movie or Indy Jones with the theme music.
