    Hi,

    i wonder if it's possible to create a Mediacenter / Mediaplayer with Cover-Support like the USB-Loaders got..
    it would be really nice if i could use covers for my films and mp3 disks..

    i know the mplayer and geexboxx but as far as i know they dont support covers.. :/

    so.. is it possible to create somethin like that, or does it already exist?

    thx

    edit:

    could someone pls move it to HB-Area?
    ;p sorry

    AppleTV, Apple Front Row, and Apple iTunes already do this [​IMG]

    I figure, if you can post in the wrong place, I can rag on you [​IMG]

    you forgot XBMC! I love that thing... it displays covers, and will even download them for you!

    XBMC or something like it would be nice. All my mp3s have the cover art in them. We need a coding hero to work on this. I wish I could code but I'm clueless at it.

    Ide like to say yes this can be ported as it runs off essentially a linux kernel.

    Just like geexbox

    but way better.

    the only question about xbmc linux is, is it working on power-based cpus like the one the wii uses and could somebody port the gpu acceleration to the hollywood.
