    Dear community,
    please find at the first post of this thread and in our plugin repository the updated version v1.2.2 of MediaTip. This update was required to fix the broken plugin compatibility with MediaPortal v1.3.0 in case of a downgrade from v1.4.0 Pre-Release was performed.

    Cheers, Micropolis

    • internal update mechanism has been changed with this version, the old way should work until end of October 2014 only
    • to make place in the plugin numbering, the overlay window ID has been changed from 7979 to 79800, please update your skin files accordingly
    Cheers, Micropolis

    Dear community,
    I'm happy to present you the newest release of MediaTip, which can be downloaded from the well known places as usual. This version contains a shelveset to share your plugin related settings and profiles across devices and services. In principle all network storages, cloud services (e.g. OneDrive, Dropbox) or any other storage you would like to use should work as expected.

    To allow such a functionality, major changes inside the plugin code was necessary. Before using this new version and/or the sharing feature, it is highly recommended to follow the steps below:
    • Before starting with settings and profile sharing, possible device or service specific configurations should be checked to prevent access or synchronization problems later. For more information, please take a look into the manual (chapter "Settings and Profile Sharing") or the troubleshooting guide.
    • In case you decide to disregard the sharing feature, the plugin will work in the same way as before.

    Unfortunately from now on the release rate of this plugin must be reduced due to time and budget issues. I'm not able any longer to work nearly each evening on plugin improvements or enhancements. Of course bug fix releases will be published in a regular way, possibly in combination with the release cycle of MediaPortal. If you would support future development, I was pleased to receive a small donation. This would help to bring my 5-years old development environment back up to date. The donation link can be found in the first post of this thread and in the about box of the plugin.

    Of course, I continue to look forward to your feedback, bug reports or feature requests. How quickly such changes can be implemented, the future will answer it.

    Thank you and regards,
    Micropolis

    Dear community,
    during the last few days there was a little bit time to create a new tool that can help to generate 2D and 3D Compact Disc and Digital Video Disc covers for your music and movie collection. The download is available at the first post of this thread.

    MediaTip Cover Creator.jpg

    This is a first beta version. In case some of you find it useful, I can increase the functionality of this tool step-by-step. Possible ideas of mine are
    • iterate through a complete directory tree to generate covers automatically,
    • include new cover types (depending on community feedback and support),
    • more options for cover creation (depending on community feedback).
    Please report any bugs, wishes and ideas here, small donations are welcome.

    Update: new version 0.3.2 available.

    Cheers, Micropolis

    I never used this plugin before and don't know which features it brings along. So my question/request would be, is this plugin supporting also BluRay covers? If not, maybe you can implement it? Maybe an extra button where I can set a custom case for e. g. SD-Movies or HD-Movies (a default blank cover and set only the artwork at the left side of the case like the DVD logo in the example).
    Optional an artwork for e.g. "Special Edition", "Extended Edition", "Anniversary Edition"... at the top of the case or bottom would be great.
    I know that this would be a lot of work and the requests were only a brainstorm. The question is, is it even realizable?

    Hello @badboyxx,
    I'm not sure what you are talking about.
    the MediaTip plugin will use existing covers, which must be designed before using a tool and cannot create cover images on the fly. The MediaTip Cover Creator is such a tool and contains BlueRay templates. So my suggestion is to use the Cover Creator tool, save the images to your appropriate movie folders and use the plugin to display it inside MediaPortal.

    Regards, Micropolis
