You can display and rotate multiple custom images of yours using theater mode in various ways.Using "Default" view
- Add your local images into MusicBee\Plugins\TheaterMode.List\Default.Rotation\ folder.
- If you run "Default" view, you will see those images as background images.
- You can adjust rotation period by editing the file. For instance, <settings rotationPeriod="EndOfTrack" /> will change the background image for each track.Using "Landscapes" view
- Create MusicBee\Plugins\TheaterMode.List\SharedArtwork\Landscapes folder and add your local images into it.
- Open Landscapes.xml file with a text editor
- Find the fourth line looking like this
<settings backgroundImage="Default Landscape.jpg" />
- Add the following code just below it
<settings rotationFolder="Landscapes" />
- Find the following code in 14~15th line and remove it.
<element type="Gallery" x="1" y="1" widthDock="Panel" width="-2" heightDock="Panel" height="-2" aspectRatio="stretch" interval="60" tags="Landscape" ></element>
- Now run the "Landscapes" view, and you will see your local images as the background.
- If you want to change the background image too with your local image, find MusicBee\Plugins\TheaterMode.List\SharedArtwork\Default Landscape.jpg and replace it with your own. If you have changed the filename too, adjust the image name in the third line "<settings backgroundImage="Using Soundtrack picture folder
- You can also display your local images on the theater mode gallery or artist panel of main player.
- Name your image files as starting with an album name you want to listen to (like Abbey Road_01.jpg, etc.) and store in your soundtrack picture folder. Then while the album is playing MB will show those images instead of the usual artist pictures.
- So you could create a custom album with your favorite songs and rename your custom image files following that album name.
