    Does anyone know if there is a way to integrate like a Yule Log animation into MP? I was looking online for a fireplace screensaver and they all seem pretty bad. I came accross iYule.TV (iYule.TV 30-minute Yule Log video for iPods, iPhone, Zunes and more!) it looks really nice and has a version that comes with holiday music. It seems really realistic as you can hear the fire crackling and hear other sounds. Was hoping someone could write a plugin for this where you can get a full screen yule log (fireplace) within Media Portal. This would be great for the holidays, thank you.

    Install Windows XP winter fun pack that includes Yue Log visualisation.
    Then open MP configuration -> Music -> Visualisations -> Select Yule Log

    Another thing you could do....

    What i have done is create a menu item using multishortcut plugin to automatically open firepalce.mkv and display fullscreen. Then i added a hotkey to load the plugin using shortcut'er. Then i mapped a remote key to the hotkey.
