Moving Pictures in Blue3wide Home Screen (1 Viewer)

Is it possible to get moving pictures to show up in my home screen for the blue3wide skin? It would be fine if this replaced the "My Videos" choice, but not critical. I guess I could use the streamed MP skin, but I wanted to keep things simple.

If this isn't possible, how do I access moving pictures?

Thank you in advance for your help,

    Yes, this is very possible as long as you mean the standard Home screen rather than BasicHome.

    Make sure you have the MovingPictures.xml file in your B3W skin directory. Then in the plugin config, make sure you have chosed to display MovingPictures in Home rather than Plugins.

    You don't need to replace MyVideos, you can have as many plugins in the home screen as you like. But to keep things clean and simple, I move MyVideos into Plugins and just leave MovingPictures in Home.

    If you want to change the BasicHome menu, it is a bit more complex an involve editing the xml file.

    1. Edit basichome.xml from your skin\blue3wide directory
    2. Look for the following section
    <description>home BM Video</description>
    <hover>hover_my videos.png</hover>
    <animation effect="zoom" start="20,20" end="100,100" center="640,360" time="500">WindowOpen</animation>
    <animation effect="zoom" start="100,100" end="20,20" center="640,360" time="500">WindowClose</animation>
    3. Change the hyperlink value from 6 to 96742
    4. Change the label value from 3 to your own text like Movies

    Not really that difficult. Remember to make a backup before you begin - just in case ;)
