    Hi,

    Version 1.9 of this plugin is now released. See installation guide for change log (link).

    Mostly bug fixed but also included is a fix that enables skins to use the VISIBLE and HIDDEN animations without getting the old "slideshow" effect.

    best regards

    Hi huma2000,

    Thank you for your feedback. Next version (1.10) will load these initial tasks as a separate thing and will not be done as now prior to loading the plugin. My own tests show good improvements in startup time.

    best regards

    Re: Fanart Handler Plugin v1.9 (and music fanart scraper)

    Hi cul8er,

    I didn't test it yet the new version, but i can test this evening, i don't know if you know this issue : i try to decribe, we have talk (Homey, Trevor and me on IRC) :

    In streamedMP, we can choose what backdrop can appear when we go on RADIO or other choice in home screen, but here it's on RADIO, if we choose the directory C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Thumbs\Skin Fanart\movies and if we don't have Moving Picture Database, the backdrop take the right picture that we have in this directory.

    But we remark that if we have a database for Moving pictures, it doesn't take the picture in this directory but the picture that contain the database.
    Also, if we choose another directory games etc, it's working even with Moving Picture Database, it's only append with Skin Fanart\movies directory
    I hope that you understand what i try to explain lol.

    Thank you,
    Cheers,
    Seb.

    Re: Fanart Handler Plugin v1.9 (and music fanart scraper)

    Hi cul8er.

    I am seeing this error in the fanarthandler.log, does not seem to stop it working but guess it should not be happening.

    This was on a clean install on Fanart handler V1.9 (though did it before on 1.8), complete uninstall, delete of DB/ORG files and the whole skin fanart dir then a fresh install of the plugin.

    It happens where entering a music screen, not sure if this is a plugin of skin issue. I attached the actual log and the fanartHandler.xml config file.

    Thanks

    Re: Fanart Handler Plugin v1.9 (and music fanart scraper)

    Hi Sebastiii,

    Thanks for your feedback but I don't really understand.

    Can you please provide a step by step guide on how to reproduce this. What is the expected outcome and what is the actual outcome.

    I'm sure this is a bug and something that we can resolve if I get a good understanding of the issue.

    best regards

    Re: Fanart Handler Plugin v1.9 (and music fanart scraper)

    Hi cul8er,

    I'm using StreamedMP skin so what i've done is the following:

    1. Make sure you've got MovingPictures plugin installed & configured (including fanart)
    2. Put a few backdrops in 'Skin Fanart \ movies' folder
    3. add 'MyRadio' to basichome menu (StreamedMP Editor) and configure random fanart from 'Skin Fanart \ movies' directory
    4. Notice that the incorrect Fanart is shown on BasicHome.

    If i put the Radio Fanart in the 'Skin Fanart \ games' folder, i don't have this problem, but it seems that the combination of MovingPictures (dB) & 'movies' folder don't go well together.

    I've been using these settings for a few months now, and since RC2 this problem occured. With RC1 i didn't have this issue.

    Re: Fanart Handler Plugin v1.9 (and music fanart scraper)

    Hi,

    So you are using the movie folder for radio? If so, yes that is a problem because the movie folder is used as the movie fanart base for many plugins (like onlinevideos, myVideos). Just like the music option is the base for music (selected music, played music).

    In short: the movie fanart option includes fanart from the movie folder, fanart from tvseries and fanart from moving pictures.

    This is by design ;)

    If you start using the movie folder for radio you will not be able to add skin support for selected movies in plugins like onlinevideos, myVideos, recordedtv.

    best regards
