    Could you explain what it is that you are seeking? (IOW, what features are you missing for the musicsection?)

    I seek for a music interface that will display fanart automatically on every album/band that I'm listening, like a grabber from allmusic.
    and I want all this in a nice interface that I will be able to change views like label/genre/rating etc.

    being able to delete albums (and all the associated files) without being in the shares view. Deleting albums has never worked well for me.

    Easier playlist generation with the ability to save that playlist easily. I haven't tried it lately, but last time it was not easy to do and I don't know if I ever got it right. I didn't spend a lot of time on it either, though.

    I agree

    I'm using Streamed MP and it looks Amazing, I Love watching peoples faces when I demo my system to them :eek: however the music interface is not as WOW as it could be and I would love to see something as slick as My Movies My TV Shows for music.

    If only I had the skills I would do this myself but unfortunately I don't so PLEASE MP Guru's make us a music plug in that goes "WOW" :D

    grabbing fanart from an internet site would be really great. i was just thinking about that last night as i have seen that the "playing now" window swaps all jpg's in the album folder...

    quest to devs, when keeping in mind that i am able to program in c#:
    could i extend the mymusic plugin with another plugin or is it a hack inside the mymusic source?

    You need a _concrete_ idea...

    The music section is able to fetch all metadata (artist cover, album cover, lyrics, ratings, similar tracks, ...) which is available for a song. So what EXACTLY is missing?

    all we're missing is the Interface... it's not easy nor comfortable to browse music folders inside MP.
    imagine that you had an interface like Moving Pictures or MPTVSERIES that will retrieve fanart to background and imports all the data and ratings about albums from allmusic.com etc.

    when I want to play some music, I give up MP and open Winamp (or everything else) instead, cause it's faster and easier.

    I hope "one will rise" and develop a useful plugin. :D

    What's the best way to select a different backdrop? Sometimes the first selected backdrop is not great and I'd like to select another. Moving Pictures scales down the high res pictures and shrinks the filesize as well so I can't just go to fanart or themoviedb and get the images without doing some extra work to get the file right...

    Hello, I read some previous posts but I didn't understand if someone did it or worked on it. I'd like to ask you if there will be the chance to interface the MP-TV series plugin with TMDB also. I don't say to eliminate the chance to keep data from TVDB, but at least the option to choose to switch to TMDB or (why not?) other sources.
