    Hi,

    1. Why do you need all these special characters in your music artist names?
    2. Why do you need now playing scrape?
    3. Why are you testing this so good?



    ;) just kidding. Thank you all for your feedback. I have fixed the reported issues and RC2 will be available soon.

    If possible, please help me by using the google code site to report issues. It is so very easy to miss issues that you report in this forum as I get no status and followup.

    best regards
    cul8er

    Hear Hear! If Issues are entered in the Tracker, then at least I can look in the tracker and SVN to figure it out what issues are related to which fixes/releases.

    Will be giving it a full test this evening, quick run on my laptop against my normal music DB shows full scraping working fine and no exceptions (even with my special characters :)). Will not be able to test the playing now scraping till I get home.

    Great job

    Thanks

    I had time to test. I have the same issues like before. I would like to use this plugin on now playing screen.
    When scrapper finds an image, I can see that. Next song, no image, I see default background. It's ok.
    But when I playing a song with matching image and then I exit now playing screen to select an other song which doesn't have background, when I go back to now playing screen I don't see the default background but I see the previous band's image for 20 secs.

    Another problem is when plugin finds two or more images, between every two images I see a brief flash of default background.

    I think I just have wrong skin settings.

    Hi vrm,

    I think both your problems are skinning related and not plugin issues. And both problems are probably due to missing the fanart available controls (91919293 and/or 91919294).

    Please change your code what I have below here (I assume this is the code for your myNowPlaying.xml). I have removed alot of controls that you shouldn't use in now playing xml and added the 91919294 control that is required.

    I did have an image hang in the first test with RC2 (an old issue), but after restarting, I haven't been able to reproduce it ... yet.

    Initial scrape went well and playing artist scrape is working. So far, all is looking good, at least in MyMusic, Playlist and NowPlaying, as I haven't tried setting up other screens/plugins yet.

    Delete is working.

    Excelent work!!! :D

    I've installed RC2 and I'm getting nothing at all, no scrapes even for artists I know exist.
    How can I do a totally clean install of the fanart handler?
