    videos library plugin crashes pvrx2 on fanart... cs4 no crash and no fan art why??.

    Hey,

    I have been wondering how can we get fanart into gbpvr so the background changes when we select a movie or tv directory. Currently on my rig the only plugin that supports the full back ground changes are the Videos Library plgun and the default blue skin that comes with gbpvr.

    I have found a pretty awesome cover and fanart scraper that works pretty good with gbpvr's recording files and downloads the art without much file changing so a batch is real easy. The picture is in the wrong file name (fanart.jpg vs background.jpg for gbpvr) I decided to scrap some movie directories and change the fanart.jpg to background.jpg and it works well. Creatively you can find a way to batch 100's of directories to background.jpg easily.. anyway

    The program is called Ember Media Manager and has options to save metadata and cover/fanart in many formats for various htpc software. get it here

    ok so fan art displays fine in the videos library plugin using the blue skin in gbpvr but when I try community skin 4 I get no back ground changes.

    A picture says a thousands words so here are the examples of the blue skin and community skin using videos library plugin and I am wondering if the devs plan on adding these features to the skins? Mayham3 also does not take advantage of these features.

    I have some weird problems with lines in cs4 when using vmr9 fse and video inset and have never fixed them even using ws and sd cs4 with all resolutions.

    I really like the cs4 dark blue skins.

    Maybe sub can use the scrapper to see if it works with the new gbpvr format.

    I was looking in config to see if I can change the background.jpg to fanart.jpg but no luck

    cheers guys

    edit - i really use te shuffle feature a lot cause with tons of movies it gets boring when the only option is alphabetically and its great to stumble upon something you haven't seen or knew you recorded
