Low home menu option
scrollbars added to every view
[*]search activity icon

Thank you for the quick reply. A little bit after I submitted this I found the menu option to show both as vertically stacked on top of each other, and felt a little dumb. I do have a few other suggestions for which I did not see any menu options. I would like for there to be an on screen volume level indicator that shows up for a couple seconds when I change the volume. Lastly, I like to be able to hit info when I am watching a video and have a description, progress bar, time elapsed and remaining, and finish time appear. Again, I really like the skin and these are just my humble suggestions from skins I liked in the past.
It seems that on screen volume has been stripped from Plex and I can not implement that. I may follow through on your second suggestion, but for now pressing I will show the codec info like Mediastream.

This skin is really awesome! A few tweaks and it would be perfect :D

my new default - GREAT work.
any way we can get the home screen fanart to be what we set in the plex media server for each section?
I like having fanart on - but I can't stand the default slideshow as I have a bunch of sections that are using the personal media scanner (don't pull in nice artwork) and home movie sections.
I looked into using the home screen fanart but Laika doesn't yet support library section fanart well enough.

Great Skin!!! Home screen looks fantastic and very usable!
- The now playing music panel is tiny up there by the clock
- The now playing full screen view doesn't seem as polished as the Mediastream one
- I think it could do with a dedicated view for episodes. Not exactly sure what should be different but something doesn't feel quite right.
The music indicator is only there to show you that music is playing. If you'd like a larger image press the m key to bring up the mini-player. The video osd has been tweaked a little, but the music osd can use some more work. For episodes I find that using the flow view with the information view looks the best. :)

One thing I would love to see is on the recently added/aired tv sections, it doesn't show the show name. Just the episode title. Is there any way to show the Show name? I can't always tell which show it is from the fan art or episode thumb!
There's no way to get that in selectively for the recently added/aired tv sections yet. I'll keep an eye out and try to figure out a solution.

Love it :)
Something that would be nice to have control over, though, is which submenu is displayed for video sections. I know you can scroll over, but I would prefer my default for TV Shows to be Recently Added rather than On Deck. I know not everyone would want this, so a switch in the preferences would be great. I dug into the skin and tried switching it around in Home.xml, but couldn't quite figure out what I was doing (I think I was close though).
The ability to move the menu bar to the bottom, rather than middle, would also be lovely (similar to PlexAeon).
Lastly, I am among those who like the on deck / recently added, but feel it's cluttering the main menu. So I'd like to throw out a request for a "toggle" for this as well (press down on the keyboard when "TV Shows" is selected and the "On Deck / Recently Added" menu will pop up)
That's a lot, I know, but they're just suggestions for your consideration. Thanks for your hard work!
I'm not going to alter the ordering for tv shows but I did implement options in the custom settings to lower the menu bar and to disable the on deck and recently added lists.

Now that the iPlayer plugin has been fixed I went to try it in Quicksilver. Unfortunately nothing will play. The screen is just a messed up jumble of static black and white bars. Sometimes the audio can be heard.
The some doesn't happen with either Mediastream or Alaska, so it seems to be Quicksilver-specific.
I took a look into this and skins don't have any control over how media plays back. Other plugins appear to work just fine, perhaps the BBC iPlayer still needs a little bit of tweaking.

Great work!! I am not fund of the music (iTunes tracks) view but for movies it's really excellent !!
The music views and music playing window could use a little more work.

Would you be able to add scrollbars to the views? I've got 600+ movies, and scrolling through the whole lot is kinda painful :D, other than that, great skin!
Done. :) From the list, cover and fanart views go to the right to make the scroll bar appear. To find it in the flow view press down.
