    This would mean that when browsing shares, the background would change when you select a folder, a movie an album etc. A setting in configuration "use fanart.jpg" would turn this on/off.

    it's working already for MyVidéo.
    set the folder as "dedicated movie folder" and rename the fanart.jpg to foldername -fanart.jpg, i use it everytime.

    Every movie is in it's own folder
    For 'Normal' video files or ISO files, nfo file names can use either folder name OR file name without stack extension.

    DVD or Blu-Ray files must use folder name for nfo file without stack extensions (CDn, Partn, [n-n]). Image files (posters, fanart) can use either folder name or you can name them as folder.jpg and fanart.jpg for any file type.

    Examples:

    File movie file (e.g. .avi, .iso) on HDD DVD/Blu-Ray
    movie D:\Movies\MovieFolder\VideoFilename.avi D:\Movies\DVDFolder\VIDEO_TS\..
    D:\Movies\Blu-RayFolder\BDMV\..
    nfo D:\Movies\MovieFolder\MovieFolder.nfo
    OR
    D:\Movies\MovieFolder\VideoFilename.nfo D:\Movies\DVDFolder\DVDFolder.nfo
    D:\Movies\Blu-RayFolder\Blu-RayFolder.nfo
    poster D:\Movies\MovieFolder\MovieFolder.jpg
    OR
    D:\Movies\MovieFolder\folder.jpg D:\Movies\DVDFolder\DVDFolder.jpg
    D:\Movies\Blu-RayFolder\Blu-RayFolder.jpg
    OR
    D:\Movies\DVDFolder\folder.jpg
    D:\Movies\Blu-RayFolder\folder.jpg
    fanart D:\Movies\MovieFolder\MovieFolder-fanart.jpg
    OR
    D:\Movies\MovieFolder\fanart.jpg D:\Movies\DVDFolder\DVDFolder-fanart.jpg
    D:\Movies\Blu-RayFolder\Blu-RayFolder-fanart.jpg
    OR
    D:\Movies\DVD Folder\fanart.jpg
    D:\Movies\Blu-RayFolder\fanart.jpg

    Great, let's hope it can be added to music album folders as well.

    As usual, you have my complete support for this request! ;-) In fact, for example for music, it would be nice to have the background changed according to the band lineup that played in that particular album... ;)

    And for soundtracks, a movie backdrop makes total sense.
