i would rather have a larger album art displayed than a WMP
An option to control the size of album art and disable the mini WMP vis would be great.

    set the player to directshow and you won't have viz in setup/music/audio rendered >.

    Edit musicoverlay.xml from the skin you want to change and make the thumbsize bigger there.

    thanks, maybe the ability the change this via the option menu would be ideal for newbies and stuff. not everyone can edit an xml file and it would add to the programs usefriendliesnss

    If you use directshow and then press x key to toggle to full-screen visualization, then what happens is it stays on the current screen and acts like it is in visualization (ffw, rew etc. work and so do the overlays). You have to press x again to get out of that mode... a bit confusing. Maybe have some sort of indication on-screen which mode it is in or a full-screen picture of the album art and id3 tag info would be good instead of a visualization.

    That is not supported. In folder view you can just navigate through the pre-defined folder structure, you loose also the filter options, thouse are only existing in library view. In MP2 I watched SBS 3D movies. Important ist just the TV supports it, because MP2 send them of course in splitted screen and the TV needs to merge them. I...

    OK I solved the problem. I ran another import on 2 new albums and this time the Album art was successfully grabbed.

    Option 1: Episode file names Normally the DVD has chapters, which would correspond to the episodes. The ripper should be able to rip it into separate files. Afterwards you name the files S01EXX.mp4 (ending according to your format). Option 2: Multi-episode file names You can get only 1 file and there is no chance to split it into the...

    Standard Windows behaviour is that if you open a file in File Explorer that has an application associated with it the file will be displayed in that application. This does not happen with MP2. If I try to open a .ts file (or any other video file type associated with Media Portal) rather than displaying the recording it merely opens...
