    hi Micropolis !

    The actual release needs a running media, it cannot be used inside the music or video list/filmstrip. This would be an enhancement for the next official release, maybe with picture support.

    Version History:
    2010-02-07: v0.2.0 - initial release

    i thing you means 2010-03-07 ......;)

    Really, it is march, summer is coming ;-) Corrected...

    p.s - any prograss on worldclock ??

    The whole weekend are reserved for the community and for publishing of plugin changes/enhancements, now I need a bit time for me. Sorry, but I have also a responsibly job and it need attention.

    Cheers, Micropolis ;-)

    What should be done to get the right strings? I have Dutch set as my language under General -> Skins in MP config, but it still show the english strings. I did an install using MPEI file ;)

    Re: MediaTip plugin for MediaPortal v0.2.0

    What could be wrong with this skinfile? It worked fine while editing it in MPSkinEditor, but after starting MP again it doesn't show up. If I place back the one supplied (for Blue3) it shows up fine.

    The skinfile is for StreamedMP.

    Hmm, it may be related to this in Mediaportal.log:
    Code:

    Re: MediaTip plugin for MediaPortal v0.2.0

    Hi Zinu,
    shame on me, it was a bug inside the localization routines. I want to fix this today.
    Sorry for any circumstances...

    Regarding the skin file: please make sure, all controls from the original skin file exists. If I take a look into your skin file, e.g. ID 25/26 are not included. Becuase of this you are running into this errors.

    Cheers, Micropolis ;-)
