    Thanks ysmp, I've just installed it and it looks fantastic!
    It would be good to have similar in a few other fews like in playlists or artist / folder views.

    Re: MusicPlaying-FanartHandler plugin.

    Thanks YSMP.

    I've taken the liberty of looking at what you did to "Now Playing", and I've made similar changes to a couple of other areas:

    Firstly, I've added the fanart to "My Lyrics", but I've changed the overlay so there is transparent blue over the whole screen, otherwise there may be problems with reading the lyrics if the fanart is white.

    Next, I've added the fanard to the playlist view. I tried it both ways, but I found it works better with art for "playing" item, and not for "selected" item.

    Finally, I have included a small mod to the standard blue3wide music/songs and music/playlist XMLs. I have altered the menu so "Now Playing" is replaced by "My Lyrics" if My Lyrics is installed. I prefer this, as it already includes most of the info that is displayed in "Now Playing", plus has the lyrics too.

    Hope you like it!
