The stable version of the skin is available in the official Kodi repo

--> in Kodi just go to add-ons --> skins and install.

 

 

BETA-versions

 

I provide beta versions of the skin on a regular base, these beta versions are hosted on the Emby Kodi repo.

Check this link to get the repo: http://mediabrowser....kodi-beta-repo/

 

Please note: Official Kodi repo only contains (well tested) stable releases. Allthough extended testing is applied to all of my releases, the beta version might contain a small issue because it has the latest set of features. 

 

 

Please remember (!!) that the beta version of the skin is a seperate addon which you can install.

You can have both the beta and stable version installed on your system, keep that in mind (actually switch to the beta).

 

 

The skin has a very active community on the Kodi forums. As I don't check the Emby forums as often as the Kodi forums the best way to get support and/or stay informed about the latest changes is by checking the Kodi forum:

 

http://forum.kodi.tv...lay.php?fid=212

 

 

 

If you like this skin and you feel that you would like to help out a little bit then you can buy me a beer :-)

Hi,

 

First of all, excellent work on getting another skin xbmb3c compatible. I have not looked at it yet but will give it a try at some point.

 

I noticed you provided links such as where to install the XBMB3C addon, could you point this only at our repo: http://mediabrowser....3c-gotham-repo/ so that users are not confused as to where to install it from?

 

Secondly, would you be interested in hosting this modified skin with our other modded skins (available at the link above)? This would make the install procedure for everyone consistent with how we have them now. Just send me a PM if you are interested in this. 

 

Thanks, and great work.

Hi im85288, thanks for the reply.

I've changed the instructions text and it now points directly to the repo.

 

Good idea to host the skin in the XBMB3C repo, i'll send you a PM.

We're looking to get it hosted in the next day or so, let's get it hosted first and see if there are any issues before thinking about compressing etc :)

To be fair the size of the skin is hidden from the user when installing from the repo... For example there is Eminence at approx 15mb then Xperience1080++ at approx 135mb! As a user installing from the repo I don't think anyone should concern themselves on those details.

As i intend not to maintain 2 versions of the skin I'm making some changes to it right now so XBM3C mode is used by default (and can be optionally disabled on a per-item base).

The size is because of the (very nice) weather-backgrounds which changes based on current conditions. I'm going to take a look to make the overall size smaller, first guess is I can bring it down to about 150mb, maybe even more.

Cool, for the weather backgrounds it may be better to simply have users install their own (to reduce the package size considerably). Most skins let you set the weather fanart directory and for some really cool ones I recommend using these: http://forum.xbmc.or....php?tid=183341 which are more accurate on current conditions than the older ones used to be.

Ooh.. It's like Mediaportal Titan skin :-)

 

Nice work :-)

 

If I didn't need MadVR then I'd have been giving XBMC/XBMB3C a whirl!

You can use external players with XBMC...

Really? Always thought MadVR was a no-no with XBMC.

 

I like the combination of MBT player with MadVR since I get the nice overlay and resume ability but great pic quality.

 

I do like XBMC though - it's a tinkerers dream :-)

Sure, just set up MPC-HC as an external player. Personally I think the built in player with reclock is just as good, but I am not very picky.

I installed this skin today and I am not having very much luck with it so far.

 

The tiles on the home screen seem to show up fine and show with appropriate images from my files on the server. However, when I select the Movies tile or the music tile it takes me to the XBMB3C addon instead of the files. If I select the TV Series tile it correctly takes me to my TV Shows.

 

I also use Live TV. When I select the Live TV tile and the screen comes up and just shows me the default background screen with nothing on it and I can't then back out of the screen or do anything. I have to pull up the task manager and it shows the XBMC is not responding and I have to manually exit out of it. 

 

Here is the log file from the XBMC folder. Let me know if you need anything else.
