[SKIN] SLik

Post by xbs » Sun Jul 29, 2012 11:54 am

DOWNLOAD SKIN

SLik is designed to be minimal and follow a theme.

You won't find 100's of media views here just simple down to earth views that concentrate on accessing your media quick and easy and not just showing you all the metadata and not much media.

Slik has comics and the submenu of pictures, but how do I make it respond to comics on the Xbox HDD or LAN?

I came to notice that Slik doesn't flag the mpeg-4 (part 2) like it does with let's say say mpeg-2, xvid, divx and H.264 can someone look into this and implant this?

Comics work the same as games, emus, etc... with a source named Comics.

Does it work in other skins? Which one(s)?

EDIT: Just checked and there's no mpeg 4 flag in the skin, only mpeg 1 and mpeg 2
Confluence Lite doesn't have it either which pops the question does XBMC differenciates the codec in the first place?
If it does we may just need new mpeg 4 flags

I already figured out my problem with regards to the comics, the way you described create a source named "comics".
I don't know if XBMC differenciates the codec, maybe Buzz knows the answer to that question. Both Xvid and Divx are based on the mpeg-4 codec and XBMC differentiates both of those, so I would think that it also differentiates mpeg-4 itself. Buth again I think this is something that Buzz would maybe know.

Do you know where I can remove the Comics hyperlink as I am not using this? Thanks

I've been a bit occupied with real live :) you know... family, work, other stuff... but if you guys find any bugs, issues or new features you think should be added to SLik please post it here and I'll take a look asap.

I have an idea about a new feature that could be added. I've noticed when using the music library, that there isn't a option to add fanart to albums and or artists from mix cd's (various artists). It would be nice if this feature would be added, because it would complete the music libraries.

SLik needs an update to be fully compatible with future xbmc releases see http://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/forum/viewt ... f=9&t=1485
I already fixed it for my own use, but I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to change and upload the skin that's something for xbs.

Could you upload your XML, Maza?
Users could replace the file until the skin gets updated.
TIA

Sure xbs I've attached the code in a rar file, because I couldn't upload the xml file directly.

Just unrar and put FTP it into the 720p folder.

I have an suggestion for a change of the music library view.
For the cover view it would be nice that you could see the artist name together with the name of the album. At the moment you only see the album name, I looked into the skin but I don't know how to add this information I was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction.
