    this is my personal mod of the "WorldWeather full edition plugin" skin for StreamedMP.

    My main goal was to write a theme strongly oriented to display images (webcams or satellite).

    I removed all those options that could confuse a novice user, minimizing the keys to use.

    Here is only a beta (I still have to add support for chart, hourly, graphical, historical display and add icons navigation buttons to the images section).

    How to install:

    1) overwrite the following files in the folder ...skin\StreamedMP:


    2) copy the entire contents of ...skin\DefaultWide\Media\WorldWeather in ...skin\StreamedMP\Media\WorldWeather.

    How to configure for optimal use:

    - use Foreca as Current condition provider and wetter.com as Forecast condition provider;
    - use as the first image in the panel Weather Images a webcam of the selected location;
    - use as the second image a global satellite image (for Europe suggest http://wwwdyn.zdf.de/ext/weather/sat-euri-0-48.jpg or the animated version http://wwwdyn.zdf.de/ext/weather/sat-euri-0-<rangenumber:10,48,2>.jpg);
    - to the rss feed (only supported the first feed) set "Count" to "1" and "Separator" to "Empty line".

    How to navigate in the windows:

    press Enter key over the first button in the lower left corner to change window;
    press Left or Right key to navigate to the buttons;
    press Up or Down key to change image in Weather Images panel (only if there is more than one image).
