Seat in your sofa, turn off the ligths, listen your music, and for enjoying it better, rate it. That's what this theater mode is made for.


Coded for my computer laptop with a resolution of 1280x800, Not for a bigger or smaller screen.
Seek bar on top for usability.
Big title on top
The place for player controls is the same than with my skin (Dusk.mod.lnminente)
Back button in top left.
BIG time, so you won't be late because of me :D
For showing/hiding the track list, click in the title of the actual song.

I use minilyrics but the button "LRC" is on top to see them in MB.
Track list inspired from some code of Greb.

You can disable Spectrum visualizer if your computer heats up, for doing it comment the SpectrumVisualiser element in the xml file.

I recommend using a wireless keyboard, configured like follows:
Left and right arrows= back and fast forward 5 seconds
Control+up/down= increase/decrease volume
Control+Left/right=previous/next song
Numpad numbers for rating songs
Numpad +/- for increasing/decreasing 0.5 stars
Space= play/pause

Installation: Unzip it in MusicBee\Plugins\TheaterMode.List

when not set to full screen and the window size is not so large, the the lyrics is sized to 0 and that causes the plugin to fail. I have fixed it so the plugin wont fail for the next update

Thanks Steven, i didn't realize that. BTW there is a bug when being in fullscreen and pressing the back button, the main window needs a full redraw. TIA

Reduced CPU using a smaller spectrogram over the cover
Now showing rating for the next coming tracks
Now showing genre, composer and comment for the currently playing song
Replaced the spectrogram at bottom with a graph of the song
Album name now is centered
Button for showing/hiding "Now playing list", now it is remembered
Player controls had to be moved up to not interfere with the graph of the song
Time aligned to the left to reduce its movement when using not monospace fonts



Installation: copy this file to the theatermode folder, it requires the background image from the first posted version.

121212 WIP:
Some polishment, smaller clock, small love icon nearer to the stars, bigger artwork, shadow effect instead of selected. Code commented for easier modification.
I have added an artist panel but I'm not able of showing artist and list of tracks panels at the same time. If someone knows please tell me
