Sounded pretty simple, change the default picture with the Movie Trailer script. The QuickTimeBrowser.py has the lines in it;

CODE
# Define the background image to use, if any.
#BACKGROUND = None
#BACKGROUND = 'background3.png'


but when I put in my own picture, it doesnt seem to work. Has anyone had any success with it? I have tried jpg, and png files as well as specifying the path;

CODE
q:\scripts\QuickTimeBrowser-1.37-mod\filmreel.png


no luck.

don't use a path, use the naming exactly as in the original .py file, but with your image name

now place your file in XBMC/Skin/Project Mayhem III/media/

so the .py would read as;

CODE
# Define the background image to use, if any.
#BACKGROUND = None
BACKGROUND = 'your-image.png'


instead of;

CODE
# Define the background image to use, if any.
BACKGROUND = None
#BACKGROUND = 'background3.png'

Ah-ha, so it doesn't go in the same path as the script itself, it looks in the skin path? very good to know.
