A (hopefully) touchscreen friendly TM similar to Modern Compact View.

Artist View


Minimum designed size (scalable) is 800 x 450 [16:9 ratio]
If last.fm or equaliser is enabled, icon shows at top LH
if lyrics are available, green speech bubble appears lower RH
controls background and image infill changes with colours from Album Cover
dashboard icon (bottom RH) opens another slim RH panel with volume up/down, shuffle on/off and repeat on/off
star symbol opens Now Playing Assistant

Download from here and unpack .zip to "TheaterMode.List" in your MB Plugins folder

and Landscape View


available here

and also Album View


available here

Update Log:
February 14, 2014 - Added Album View; fixed LastFM and Equaliser icon not turning off; swapped next/prev track icons around

Thanks! Both versions look great!

BTW why is next button over, not below, play button? Maybe it's just me but a little confusing.

2 reasons.  When the buttons are arranged horizontally they are prev - play/pause - next so I kept that sequence when going vertical.
I also wanted the play/pause button to be the center button in the panel.

That's what I expected, but the sequence looks reversed to me.

It depends on where the buttons were before you rotated the screen.  If you have them at the top and rotate 90deg right to put them on the RH side, the next button would be on the bottom. If, however, you start with the buttons on the bottom and rotate 90deg left to bring the buttons to the RH side, then the next button is on top.

I looked at lot of touch player images, and the majority had the buttons on the bottom, so to put them on the RH side, I went with the LH rotation.

I'll leave it as is for now, but if enough users say it's awkward, then it will be changed around.

BTW. redwing you were right  :)  next track under play/pause does seem to be better.
Maybe because you use the mouse scroll-wheel downwards when moving to the right in horizontal scrolling?
Whatever the reason, I've changed the icons now.
