    In the last couple of days i worked a bit on WebMPs movie view.

    My intention is to have a nicer overview of my movies and faster access to things like playing the movie.

    As a result this came to my mind:
    Unfortunately my movie database isn't cleaned up, so they are a few missing covers and i haven't worked on a good "play" button ;)

    I will push this to git as soon as i'm done with the play button.

    Very nice Mike,(y)
    maybe you can design it as a gridview with paging. (I don't know how to this)
    I've also tried something similar, but 700 moviecovers on one page isn't dealable even with very small resized thumbs.

    Thanks! I will look into doing it with some ajax magic which hopefully makes the page more responsive ;) But that's also new to me so i have to dig into it a bit ;)

    It's great to see that others are developing skins for WebMP too. It looks pretty good!

    Some (technical) feedback:
    • You can include a stylesheet with @Html.Assets().AddViewStylesheet("<path in skins folder>"). HeadHtml was kind of a mistake (it won't work anymore if we decide to use AJAX later on).
    • You don't have to put a doctype at the top of your views (MovieLibrary/Details.cshtml)

    Today's schedules on the homescreen works for me.. what type of schedule doesn't work for you? Music streaming might indeed be broken, it's on my todolist.

    Looks pretty good. You might want to make the margins between the covers a bit bigger, so that the "min" suffix doesn't move to a new line for 100+ minute movies.

    Hmm, that's an interesting point. Since a few days there's the option to resize server-side now, which should help a bit, but 700 covers might indeed cause performance problems. We've to keep in mind that there are also people with 1000+ movies. Depending on the performance it might be preferable to have just a plain list of movies in the default theme and add the fancy features in a skin only.

    Yes you are right, all is working fine for today schedules.
    Wasn't there a time when you saw future schedules also? (pretty unsure)

    Yeah, that might have been the case long, long ago.

    Yeah that's on my list. Since it's only a change in the css file i haven't done it yet.

    I'm using the resize feature and on my local system this works quite good, but i'm currently looking to get the image data async with ajax. But somehow there is no snippet to do that with ASP.Net MVC so i'm still looking what would be the best way to do this.

    Hi Oxan,
    as i don't know how to provide a proper patch i'm going this way.
    I've made some really small changes to movie images as you've done it with tvshow...

    Code (Text):
    1.        
    2. -      public ActionResult Image(string movie, int width = 0, int height = 0)
    3. +      public ActionResult MovieCover(string movie, int width = 0, int height = 0)
    4.        {
    5.             return Images.ReturnFromService(WebStreamMediaType.Movie, movie, WebArtworkType.Cover, width, height);
    6.        }
    7.  
    8. +      public ActionResult MovieFanart(string movie, int width = 0, int height = 0)
    9. +      {
    10. +           return Images.ReturnFromService(WebStreamMediaType.Movie, movie, WebArtworkType.Backdrop, width, height);
    11. +      }
    12.  
    Attached are the "MovieLibraryController.cs" and the correspondending *.cshtml's.
    Hopefully you will integrate it to git mastercode?!
