mvCentral Music Videos Plugin
I am pleased to announce the next release of mvCental for MediaPortal 1.2.
This release concentrates on expanding the GUI side of the plugin - a full set of Play Current and Next properties have been added along with various tweaks and bug fixes, the StreamedMP Video OSD has also been updated to some of the new properties.
A method has been introduced to allow skinners to provide a pop-up info box when a video starts, the included StreamedMP skin files support this as does aMPed as of v3.3.3.
I have included Default and DefaultWide version of the videoFullScreen.xml and mvCentral.PlayStart.xml files as seperate downloads if those using the default skins want the pop-up info feature, this is because plugins should not alter MP core skinfiles and these can be found of the Google Project site.
You can also install using the MediaPortal Extenstion Installer
I have also now mostly completed the skinners guide and this can be found here

Changed SmartPlaylist Random option to Random (HD) - this will play all videos that are marked 720p, 1080p,1080i or HD.
