Re: How to use TViXiE2Playon!HD
Here is the key path setup. You have to map your hard drive to a letter and use that map for BOTH the movie folder location and when you add the movie folder. Seems a little superfluous to name the location where your movies are and then where the files/folders are in the next step which is why I was thrown off. In the end, when all else fells do not assume and just follow the directions.

Things I have learned besides:
On the Build Jukebox Tab you three inputs on the top right corresponding to the name of the file within each folder (you should have one of each for every movie folder named the same):
1. Movies Thumbnail Name is the image used for the PhotoView and PhotoFocusView Menus.
This should be a smaller jpg around 200x300 but will look at code to find out exact dimensions used by Tvixie2playonhd developer. Best not to resize this so it looks the sharpest. You can use larger images but you will find that they will lag the jukebox - I attempted to use my 1000x1500 folder.jpg images and found this out.
2. Movies Info Name is the image used for the Overview of the film. The one created by Tvixie with the fanart, metadata, and box cover all on one jpg. These should be 720p. This should always be background.jpg.
3. Tvixie MoviesInfo File is the metadata file. This should always be MovieInfo.tvixie. Not sure what the conversions program uses out of here but there is an option below for title tag source and there is path information also in the MovieInfo.tvixie file. It is a text file.
The conversion program is based on 720p and you should use 720p themes. The 1080p background.jpgs get pushed off the screen at the edges.
I used very nice 1000x1500 folder images (Movie cover art) in the creation of my background.jpgs. I edited the template in Tvixie to use my image instead of the smaller one they created called front_cover.tvixie (a jpg file) which gets layered into their fanart.tvixie (another jpg file). Tvixie fetches metadata for each film (MovieInfo.tvixie - a text file) then combines it with fanart.tvixie and front_cover.tvixie to create the background.jpg which is what we see on the PlayOn!HD when you select one of the movie covers.
Unlike YAMJ which has fields and data, this way just displays one single jpg which makes it highly customizable.
It is very fast to load the jukebox and make changes .
All I can think of for now. We will need a super editor to clean all these posts up.
***** PS Can you post your template Pe3? I prefer yours as a base to steal from
. And it is 720p.
