Highlight Media Type

Postby Rigido » Mon Feb 04, 2013 6:43 pm

Ok, it's late and maybe I am a little bit tired, but I was thinking if it would ever be possible to highlight covers (in cover view) with a colored glow effect based on media type :twisted:
You know, a blue glow around (or just under) the cover for blu-rays and silver for DVDs

Time to go to sleep?! :mrgreen:

Interesting, but would cause a lot of confusion for most users I think. This way users strive to have the correct cover art.

Conor, this doesn't want to become a "serious" discussion but... :)
It's so difficult to find good DVD/BR covers that I use movie posters and, so sad, many times I have to use English posters to have a good and crisp cover, that's why I was thinking a way to highlight media type.
I was wondering if, given a "template", DVDpedia could render it in cover view.
The template could be something like this one: http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2009/ ... uMbGuM.jpg
and DVDpedia should just render cover inside it (giving coordinates maybe).

Thank you I'll keep it mind when updating the cover view.
