Purpose

  • Required:  No
  • Type of Change:  Feature

Some extra skin properties have been provided in the music now playing screen which provide extra info about the current and next tracks.

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.
