    Are you just like my using My Videos in MediaPortal for more than just full-length videos with imdb-information? Then this mod is for you. :D

    The mod changes the Small Icon and Big Icon view by adding text under the icons and removes the DVD-cover with information in List-view. This is a mod of the original My Videos 1.6 with as minor changes as possible. Check the screenshots for how it looks like.

    Below is the file you need to download for this mod. Version 1.6 backups included.



    Thanks to pilehave and aj1405 for help with this mod.

    You need to use these attributes in the thumbcontrol:

    Code (Text):
    1. <renderFocusText>yes</renderFocusText>
    2. <renderUnfocusText>yes</renderUnfocusText>
    If you want to position the text you can use:

    Code (Text):
    1. <textXOff>10</textXOff>
    2. <textYOff>10</textYOff>
    Your second wish is impossible :)

    BTW, I don't know if the scenario above is only possible in 1.1.0 Alpha or also in 1.0.2.

    I do not use Black&White but i would start by looking in "myvideo.xml" and look for the facadecontrol. It may be included in a separate file.

    It is not in myvideo.xml (there is no myvideos.xml in black&white).

    A search of the skinfolder (including searching inside files etc) did not find any mention of facadecontrol or thumbnailcontrol.

    Well, myvideo.xml (i wrote myvideos.xml but it is without the "s") is the skin-file controlling the built-in "My Videos". It will not work without, so it IS there, trust me ;)

    Open myvideo.xml and look for <include> files. If there are no <include> files, the the facadecontrol is in myvideo.xml.

    I think I know what you are saying now :)

    I noticed "<import>common.facade.video.xml</import>" now and inside that file <description>Thumbnail Panel</description><type>thumbnailpanel</type>.

    I will now add the controls above that you mentioned (they are not already there) and see what happens...

    Thanks so far :)
