1.2.0 beta:   


1.2.0 RC1:   To avoid confusion with other skin properties we have renamed the skin properties to start #music.*
So what was #artist in 1.2 beta is now #music.artist etc.

Purpose

  • Required:  No
  • Type of Change:  Feature

Some extra skin properties have been provided to the music browsing screens (both database and shares views) to give information about the currently selected track.

These properties are based on data embedded within the tags of music files (the track details) or Album or Artist info that has been scraped from within Mediaportal and loaded into the database.  If data is not embedded within tags or no album or artist info has been scraped by the user these properties will be empty.

Description of Change

The properties from album down are available at any level where album details are available where as the ones above it are only available when a track is selected.   You can make use of properties appropriate to the level the user is browsing by combining these properties with the #itemtype property.

The exposed properties are:
