    Background

    Everyone is starting to skin with the clear background which rocks. but i'm having a hard time coming up with a background that i like. so i was thinking what if the background was your audio cover. I'm not any good at writing code, but i have an imagination. Not even sure if this is possible? Any thoughts, or anyone willing to give this a shot. Most of my album covers are 500x500 so quality shouldn't be an issue. Posted before and an idea.

    Thnks.

    sounds like a flash job to me. this is easily possible with flash right now, but im not sure how well it would work with guino's current set up.

    you can't change the background for the .skin file you are in without going out of that .skin file and either reloading the skin or have that as a /discardable skin in which case you would have to go out of the .skin and then back in again.

    And have to do that everytime the song changed.

    again, unless you are using flash, in which you can just layer your album art to be behind a transparent playlist.
