Recliq, I verified I can log in to the wiki. Can you please create a page for me and place it in the area you feel best fits.
The focus of this page will be a tutorial on how to create a custom screen saver that works anywhere in the WD Live player (1.02.21 of course), including playing music or movies.
Using our discussion below, I have gone ahead and enhanced my MovieSheets+ slideshow feature to show a cover picture of the current music track being played.
The cover is added on top of the slideshow. I get this info by using the GetMediaInfo upnp command, which tells me what music file is being played and its title.
mad_ady, I do NOT use UPNP for the actual slideshow picture, as UPNP on the WD only supports a single media file at any given time. So I let WD use it to play the music and I use my own method to clear the screen and show pictures.
You will see that I changed the slideshow timeout to be only 30 seconds for this youtube video. I also created three short music files so that I can demo how they change without having to wait for the entire song to play (I shortned each song to be only 20 to 45 seconds long). The slideshow randomly shows every image in a special folder so that you can add your own images to it. By default each theme comes with 3 still images which is why you see the same 3 images repeat.
Best to view the youtube video in HD 720p. All of the slideshow is directly from my WD. There is no mock-up or video tricks. I use a Hauppage PVR device to capture my video.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHMMhGNNjeg
As I don't typically play music on the WD (I prefer to have a random movie trailer playing instead), sm13349 please review the above youtube and let me know if this is along the lines of what you were wanting?
Once I hear back from you, I will look into creating the tutorial of how I did it.
