    I had an idea today, not sure if it's possible to do already with FanArtHandler, but here goes:

    When you browse the music albums, normally you see the artist fanart, but I'd like to suggest an additional option to the base of MediaPortal's music section.

    We already have the option to use Folder.jpg when browsing the albums, but what if we could also use a backdrop called "Fanart.jpg" in the root of an album folder?



    This way:
    * even the more obscure albums would get fanart
    * artists who've had a long career can have a group shot from that time with the correct members
    * movie soundtracks can have the movie's backdrop
    * etc

    Hi emphatic, do you think we can add our request to the deployment section of this forum? I think that this requested could be made both for MediPortal (MyMusic) and FanArtHandler...

    What do you think?
