This mod places a mini preview window in all four of the main blades and also a mini preview window in the videos, music, pictures, games, xbox arcade, and applications windows. I have thoroughly tested this in all ratios and it works great. In the rar file that contains the code for this mod I have included a very extensive readme file that will answer most if not all questions. If the readme doesn't answer your question feel free to ask here or even if your just confused. I will be glad to help. Feedback is appreciated. Download MC360 Mini Video Window Code

Thanks for the feedback... I forgot to do the scripts window so I'm working on adding a player in there and I've revised the readme a little. I'll post a new link when i finish that. Any bugs to report?

Fixed the scripts window... download
Any bugs?

p.s. If you've already installed the original version, then just add MyScripts.xml (from the PAL folder of the new download) to your MC360 PAL folder as that xml file is the only revision to the code.

Will this mod work in conjunction with TimDog's Monster Mod? I think this looks real hot, but I can't be with out the Video Monster Mod. If anyone knows....Drop me some word!! Thanks

One more thing......Is there an option , say on the Guide Blade maybe , that lets you select which blades have the window? I'd like it only for media blade and inside of the market place. This is not a request or anything....just inquiring?

Sorry to disappoint, but they definitely won't work together. If spaz7986 was interested it could be integrated into the monster mod, but you can't install one and then the other unfortunately.

although I will not personally integrate it (i'm busy with other stuff (mc360 skin for AMT) and I don't use the monster mod) I don't care if anybody integrates the code from my mod into the monster mod for personal use. But if it's integrated and used as an official part of the monster mod I would appreciate credit for the code in the readme file of the monster mod. If you didn't read the entire readme file I included with my mod I put a whole lot of instructions down at the bottom for how to integrate my code into your own custom xml files. I'm not positive but I think that if you followed the directions at the bottom of my readme EXACTLY that you could successfully integrate my code into the monster mod. If someone successfully integrates my code into the monster mod and works out the bugs and then sends me their results I might be willing to add a player in the video marketplace window and other places but I don't know yet. I just don't want the headache of bugs and testing and all that comes with that especially for something I'm never going to use (the monster mod).

simply: if you want it bad enough do it yourself or figure out how to... feel free to ask me questions if you can't figure something out (I might have the answer I might not)

i wasn't suggesting you do it at all, but sounds like you got a solution for fourtwenty anyway. Oh, and just so you know, the video marketplace window already has this so that wouldn't be an issue smile.gif

cool... feel free to use my code (with credit)

I hardly use xbmc's audio player at all but if you guys want I could add visualization windows in for when you're playing audio in the same places. (don't know how good it would look)

I'm going to wait until I have a newer version of xbmc than the current t3ch but I'm planning an update to this code. If you like this mod try my mc360 skin code for Apple Movie Trailers here

Sorry that an update is taking so long... I'm in the final week of my colllege quarter so you get the picture... don't try using this code on the new updates to mc360 and xbmc because it will destroy the text of the skin. I'll probably release an update in about 10 days...
