Welcome to MediaPortal's first skinning contest for WebMediaPortal.*
Lyfesaver74 (jQui) is challenging all MP users to dust off their old HTML/CSS skills and put them to the test for a chance to win a Google Nexus 7, customized MP gear and more. Even if you don't win, every completed** skin that gets submitted will earn a FREE Basic MediaPortal T-Shirt**.
1st Place - New Nexus 7 (Tablet PC/Android 4.1)
2nd Place - MP GearBox (Customized MP T-Shirt, MP Cap, MP 16GB USB3 Thumbdrive, MP Keychain & more)***
3rd Place - Customized MP Hoodie/Sweatshirt***
All skins submitted meeting the "completed" status will also receive a free basic MP T-Shirt.
WebMP is a popular client for MP-Extended allowing users to browse, watch and download saved media plus record, schedule and watch live TV from almost any browser on any device. While the bulk of WebMP is your standard HTML/CSS, because MP-Extended is an ASP.NET/MVC project, skinners can utilize inline C# syntax (Razor) as well. Pair that with MP-Extended's ability to utilize custom DLLs to give the skinner total control.
The great news is that you don't need to know C# or ASP.NET/MVC to create an awesome skin, as Oxan has already included almost everything the skinner would need.
That's it. it's just that simple. HTML/CSS or go a completely new direction with custom C# code. it's all up to you!
