Description

The UI starts to look a bit dated.

I think Showtime deserves a better UI.

Currently this is a more of a place holder for attaching other bugs/features related to UI

Showtime is indeed a bit outdated when it comes to UI department. Can't this UI redesign be done via plugins?

It can but I think a major overhaul is necessary TBH.

My plan is to, once 4.6 is released, start working on the 5.0 version which will exclusively be about a new UI

I will try to share some ideas and early prototypes as soon as I get there.

And ideas or mockups is of course welcome too :-)

Very exciting news :)

I tried to apply cover art/thumbnails to folders a while back, with no success.
So all my subfolders have to use the "no Cover" image

Would this feature be possible for 5.0?

Why is the progress bar placed in the same place as the subtitles? Wouldn't it be better to have the this OSD somewhere else?

I was watching something the other day and when I pressed >> or << on my remote the progress bar showed on top of the subtitles. I can live with it, but then again, why does it have to be like this? Wouldn't it be better to have the OSD somewhere still visible but less intrusive?

Yeah, I hate that too. If nothing else it should shift the subs up. But I know about it.

Well, now subtitles do shift out of the way of the progress bar (OSD) :) Very good :)

Also, I like the way we can now get into the SETTINGS menus just by using the ARROWS+OK buttons. This is by the best way to make Movian trully "cross platform". Keep it simple. Well done.
