Nice job bro. Love how your open minded about perfection. I was hoping you could fix the cover view for music video's movies section. On my tv, it looks way to tall and to thin on the width? Could you stretch the width out more to equal the height? Thank you for your talent & skill and the soon to be best skin for me out there. Movies is the only way to smoke one & just relax....

You see what you've done there is take the video view coverflow view (which is an oblong like a dvd cover) and altered it a fair bit then used it to display square CD images - so it looks wrong because it's not square.

yeah sorry I meant - the coverflow icon isn't square - so it squeezes the square icon into the oblong shape.

The now playing button is a great new feature. The only thing I was hoping, was you could make the box mainly transparent except the top & bottom. & could you make the cursor selector hug the icon more so there is no space on the sides or top of the picture being highlighted? This was what I was originally thinking of when I suggested the idea to you. So you when u get back from vacation. I need some to. huh.gif

I found the problem. Your cursor is way to big. Try to make a cursor like the image below, looks alot better.

Also your cursor should fit the icon like the image below.

There should be no space anywhere. & the now playing should sit ontop of your image with the rest of the cursor box wrapped around your image. Great effort on your part I must say.

That's easy enough to do - but if I set the icon to "stretch" in order to fill the square it just doesn't look right for the movie view with the standard oblong icons.

I could make a separate icon view for music icons (ie. square) that filled the whole space - like your screenie if that's what you're after - easy job. But it wouldn't make any sense for the video icon views that are traditionally dvd style covers (ie oblong) - stretching them into a square looks silly. I know you use square movie covers but that's like your own unique view - I could always send you your own version of the skin that let you have that if you wanted.

QUOTE"I could make a separate icon view for music icons". Yes another view added for just square icons would be great. I use or sorts of shapes depending on what icon I use. The weird thing is no other skin I use
has these particular problems? Thanks for your response blink.gif

Your screen captures look great on cover view. But this is what I get?
