    Skin help (correct location?)

    Hi all

    I am looking at a small project that would likely see NPVR used with abotut 3 Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket (USB things). I use KODI normally, however it seems kinda redundant to use NPVR to capture the streams then stream it to a KODI client when i could just use NPVR as the server and client(s).

    However this raises a question about skinning, can i show a capture source in a "section" on the skin, playing, like a smaller window somewhere. Ive posted a beta design image, your see the section to the right (lighter color), the location i would want the media playing from one of the above HDPVR Rocket units.

    Many Thanks
    Ashley

    I'm sure you could create a NextPVR addon that does that could do this with it's own skin There are API calls to get the channels and the video window can be overlaid in a window.

    If you aren't recording, Kodi with 3 IP cameras is probably the simpler solution.

    Code:
    <Element name="VideoInset" location="20,5" size="60,60" >
    </Element>
    stick this in your skin and adjust location..

    to see video in this square, you have to hit menu button..another hit of menu brings it back to fullscreen..
    only 1 video playing in square possible at a time..
