But to be sure, the UnknownArtist should replace the grey man in the middle right?
No, not in the Now Playing tab - that one is standard across all skins.
Switch to the Music Explorer to see if it's not showing there.

The unknownArtist image only pops up whenever MB has failed to retrieve a thumbnail from the internet.
I already spend hours on end on social media. Might as well spare a few of those to a greater purpose here.

Oh, I see now, this was a big missunderstanding on my side (from what I had found online).
Now I get it, and I checked and it works indeed :D

So If I understand correctly, the one in the Now Playing tab is not skinnable? (or maybe only with bitmapping skin in xmlc?)

Thank you for all the answers until now btw, it helped me find new things on the road to skinning ^^
