    Hello together.

    I have a little question.
    I use myvideos only for some dokus, it is possible to change the background image in myvideoListView.xml ?

    for example:
    if "Mikrokosmos Das Volk der Graeser.mkv" is highlighted i want the picture "Mikrokosmos Das Volk der Graeser.jpg" in the background. the jpg is in the same folder than the video file.


    thx for your help and sorry for my bad english

    Fanart Is automatically downloaded and displayed if you are using latest fanart handler and MediaPortal 1.2 Alpha +. MyVideos can now download fanart which can be configured in MediaPortal Configuration under MyVideos.
