I asked about removing this functionality and not one single person replied to say they would miss it, so I removed it. The current album's tracklist remaining displayed had to be fixed in "SkinFunctions.vbs" which means if you're using a non-included skin then it may not be fixed for you.
I didn't see you ask about removing the functionality from the Playlist. I saw you ask about the album art when you click on it.
I must have missed it.

I think it is a backward step, but it is only my opinion.

Ok, I'll add the tracklist action back in, with a dropdown to control the action.

Thanks for all your work in making updating and supporting Monkeyrok.

MR5.1 works great for me and I have come to like the extra features. Combined with DreadM Vision for MR skin it is a real winner.

Everything in MR 5.1 seems to be working well for me except the tabs. I still get funny tab stacking when I select the "Artist Images" tab.
I have Artist Images selected in the screenshot on the left, and Biography selected in the screenshot on the right.

All of the other tabs seem to work fine.

Thanks again Trixmoto.

UPDATE: I just figured out that this behavior doesn't occur in the "classic tabs" skin. But the weird tab behavior is exhibited in the LastFM Paint It Black skin, the Vitreous Blue, and 7on skins. So perhaps nohitter and Dreadm need to tweak the tabs skins for MR 5.1?

If that is all you saw in the other skins then that is one heck of a lot better than MR5.0.
Stopped testing other skins as soon as I tried MR5.0 with NoHitter's Vitreous Blue.
:D

I am having trouble with the tracks video panel. It appeared fine in 5.0 but now no longer appears in 5.1. The debug log says that the You tube search has no results, even for tracks that had results in 5.0 and for tracks that have videos on You Tube. The panel tab flickers into sight briefly on track change but does not populate. I wonder if I've some how broken mine or if others are having the same problem? I am using the classic_tabs skin, but have also tried Vitreous and 7on without seeing a difference in this issue.

All the fixes that say "in included skin(s)" are only fixed in the included skins - this means that skinners will most likely have to fix their own skins in the same way.

@pkw115 - I'm sorry to hear that, I can't replicate the issue though. The only thing I changed between 5.1 and 5.0 was line 1535...

Code: Select all

url = "http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query="&EncodeUrl(FixPrefixes(artist))&"+"&EncodeUrl(cursong.Title)&"search_category=10&search_type=videos"
...which was previously...

Code: Select all

url = "http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query="&EncodeUrl(FixPrefixes(artist))&"+"&EncodeUrl(cursong.Title)
The change should have made the results more accurate by searching for music videos only, but try changing it back and see if that helps.

Well, now that you say that, it makes perfect sense. Duh. :oops: Sorry I missed it.
Hopefully Dreadm, Nohitter, and Eyal will see this.

Trixmoto, Thanks for the information. I have replaced the line in the script with the 5.0 query and am again getting results. Not sure why the new 5.1 query was not working for me. Thanks for the tip and for making a great script even better with the tabs function.

I had the same issue with the video tab disappearing under 5.1. Replacing this old code back in and MR finds videos again, but still won't play them - mostly just the blank screen with the animated circle when trying to load, as well as the usual number of "embedding disabled by request" error messages.

Well in the next version I'm planning to use the webservice instead of page scraping as I am currently, so hopefully that will fix the problems.

Great to hear. Don't get me wrong... the video problem is only a mild annoyance. I LOVE the rest of the script. I'm even starting to like tabs now :) (Although, I'll likely stick with the non-tab view since it shows more info in one glance).

I don't use the tabbed skin either, but it was a popular request! :)
