I would like to personally thank all of you who have supported me and my fanart the past year and a half. I wish I could begin to tell you how many hours I've put in to my collection, but frankly, I lost count. Many of my icons have been requests from users just like yourself. Please show your support and appreciation by donating.
In preparation of Soultakers “Open Alpha” Pearl Theme, I have redesigned ALL of my icons to display properly in Media Browser using his new theme. I had to resize the canvases to allow my icons to display properly using the Pearl theme. Here is a screenshot of what they will look like (my Pearl theme has been modified, the default background is white)…
Keep in mind, these are for the “Pearl Theme”, they have not been tested yet using other themes. Please only use these with Pearl.
Also, I have noticed that the new icons dont refresh unless you manually refresh them inside Media Browser. Simply hover your mouse over the desired icon, and press “Control-R”. My icon should then display properly.
The download includes “ALL” my icons, so the download is rather large. Hope you guys like them.
These are icons I have created over the last year to contribute to the community. Most of which were specifically requested by one of you. Using your submitted requests and ideas, I used Photoshop to create them.
Have a look, if you don’t see an icon you'd like to have created, please give me a request. Please tell me what the clapper should say, for example “TV Miniseries”. Maybe even a couple picture idea’s and I'll see what I can do.
The download also includes a clapper template with the 28 Days Later font so you can try creating your own. Some of the members of the community have created a few nice looking icons themselves.
I've had multiple people asking for my genre icons to be converted to EHS icons. Well, here is my way of compromising with you. I'd like to introduce “Xzener’s MediaBrowser Icons V2”.
I'd like to thank Demonseed for teaching an old dog new tricks. He taught me a trick with Photoshop that will dramatically reduce labor time, on all my fanartwork.
My EHS icons were a big hit. I apologize for not being able to accommodate everyone with the 3D image. I hope you can understand, all of those are custom made by me. Some of the objects used are either from my digital camera, or found on the internet. So, to make everyone happy, I've decided to create the same look as my original EHS icons, but without the 3D custom image.
I took a different approach to creating these so I could get them to you guys sooner. I created most (some require a rebuild) of the genre and commonly used ones. Please have a look and download a set for yourself. I hope you enjoy them.
I will continue to rebuild and create ALL the other icons. Stay tuned.
MediaBrowser has come a long way since I've started using it. At first, my 2D icons looked great. But with all the awesome themes coming out, my icons (to me) started to look rather dated. So I decided it was time for a new look. I'm using my icons, giving them a little perspective, some 3D art, and topped off with a nice reflective touch. They look amazing with all themes in MediaBrowser, and I'm hoping you guys feel the same. I have spent countless hours creating these for you guys, please let me know what you think. Some constructive criticism is always welcome.
If you don’t see one that is on your EHS, don’t hesitate to request it. Let me know what the clapper should say, for example “MKV Movies” and a couple image ideas and I'll see what I can do.
Here is my collection of Mediainfo icons. I created these a while back in hopes that one day, we could customize the look of our MediaBrowser UI. I think that day is close.
UPDATE: I am currently configuring my mediainfo icons to be compatible with Media Browsers new feature. Please be patient.
You've all requested it, and here is is. “Xzener’s MediaBrowser Icon”. Well, icons, if you include the “ApplicationInactive” icon too. Included in the download is both icons to overwrite the originals. To install simply add images to the C:\Program Files\MediaBrowser\MediaBrowser\ folder.
I'm always on the hunt for high resolution pictures that look amazing on MediaBrowser’s top menu screen. Here is a few that I use, and I must say, puts the icing on the cake.
Also included with the download is a “Trailer” backdrop. If you create a folder in your “General” IBN subfolder and throw this into it (named “folder.jpg”), the backdrop will appear with your trailers.
Please be sure to leave important information concerning your fanart request, such as…
Any request given can be discussed by simply clicking the “add comment” under the original request. If I have question, that’s where it will be.
NOW LEAVE A REQUEST ALREADY!!
My Dropbox is back up and running. Downloads are now available.
Is there something I have done wrong? The 3D EHS icons on my Pearl setup seem a bit stretched from what they view like originally.
sorry for the stupid question, but i just downloaded MB Icons V2; where do i put these? and how do i use them?
Hi Love your icons :) I am using the Pearl Theme and setting up icons for the EHS screen alls well except I dont have an icon for Trailers, I have looked through your dropbox but can’t see one ? I think perhaps its me being Blind Fredddy. I'm sure there must be a Xzener style icon for trailers could someone point it out for me Thanks Mel
Don’t know if it’s one of xzener’s but I've been using this one for trailers
Is there any easy way to change the background from white to something else? I love the icons, but the white background is too bright for my tastes.
For those of you with white backgrounds using my icons, where are you downloading them from. If you download the entire set (for example V2) they should have a transparent background. I don’t recommend downloading them individually from the Dropbox gallery. Download the set you want to utilize for use.
Awesome icons..I've been using a couple of your basic ones for my WD TV Live (WDLXTV)Custom Firmware media player. Latley I have been looking for different and newer icons..I was googling and somehow managed to stumble across this site. I don’t have a clue what MediaBrowser is..so sorry if I shouldn’t be posting here.
I downloaded your “left” and “right” folders of icons and unzipped them then tried to making genre folders with the icons. Like usual, I dropped them into corresponding folder’s root and named them “folder.jpg” The problem is they have a white background and the transparent reflective look they are supposed to have doesn’t work. It just looks like the icon writing is written backwards and upside down (like it was looking into a mirror)
I suspect I just can’t use your icons for the wd tv…but thought I'd ask to make sure. If they do work for the wd tv live, what do I need to do?
Your work is really great!
Thanks in advance for the response.
I have just recently updated all the metadata for my movies so now I can properly use the genre icons that you created. I use the set called “Xzener’s (Non 3D) EHS Icons” and I noticed that there are some common ones that are not available, although they are available in the set called v2. These are:
If they have been created and I haven’t spotted them perhaps you can point me to their location. If not is there any chance of creating these, and if not is there a template or set of Photoshop actions that you could make available so I could attempt to make a poor imitation for my setup.
Thanks in advance,
Any Chance You can make an ‘Indie’ & a ‘Suspense’ Icon like the V2 versions?
First of all let me thank you for this awesome work. I'm a MB user from the beginning and always used your icons. Well, of course I have some wishes and hope you can do this as you previously did too:
With PEARL EHS Icons I desperately miss these things:
Comics & Heroes (Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Batman, Ironman, Thor, Green Lantern and so on..)
Internet Videos (youtube and this sort of videos)
Action Heroes (Schwarzenegger, Stallone, VanDamme, Statham..)
Super Heroes (all Comic heroes)
Also in Pearl V2 Icons the Action Heroes, Comics and Super Heroes are missing.
Would be awesome if these were available so I can use your icons again.
hey xzener i'm zoyhar and i'm using a french scrapper for xbmc (scrapper cine passion)and I want (if you agree about of course) to translate your icons in french. So, is that possible for you to give me the photoshop or gimp (or…) version of your work with wich I can easily do the text modification.
thanks and sorry for my english ;)
Hi Xzener. I love your 3D icons, theyre my favourite by far! My media pc is almost complete now I just need a few more of your icons! Just like they guy a few posts up, I really need
Suspense (icons v2)
but I also need a custom one called:
Stand Up Comedy (icons v2)
I've donated to you and a couple of devs here in the past but will happily do so again generously if you could help us out with these 3 requests!
Thanks so much for your work
Big fan of your work Xzener! Your V2 icons look great. I even use them for active entry points too, w/the default MB icon for the inactive view. I think it looks sharp when the clapboard shows through while scrolling over them.
Add this to your queue if you get time: a “Relaxation” style icon for those HD Environment/Living Landscapes type DVD’s. I am using the Nature icon in the meantime, which is kinda close. Sunsets and waterfalls are more like it though.
Keep up the good work! Sent you a little donation just to say thanks for the hard work.
Hi everyone I'm new here, and I have a question about EHS backdrop images.
Can you have a backdrop on the main screen when you first launch Media Browser with EHS disabled? If so how?
Is it just a matter of putting a backdrop.png file in the c:\ProgramData\Mediabrowser\startupfolder folder or am I missing something?
thank you for your replies. If I am posting this question in the wrong thread I apologize and may I request a link to the thread that answers my question.
I'm basically wanting to apply a backdrop with EHS turned off.
Also thank you Xzener for your icon packs and othe files. It’s people like you that take our media center experience to the next level of enjoyment.
Im a slow starter to mb ,but just came across your backdrops and icons just wondering if your still taking small request
I love yourwork, thank you.
Love the icons dude, i am after a poker pearl v2 icon if you can do one.
Unbelievable job on the icons.
I’m looking for a “Classic Sci-fi” and ‘Classic Horror" if you can do one.
Once again, amazing…
I’d like to use a folder icon like HD Movies and DVD Movies ones for my other folder “Divx-Xvid-Mkv films”. Is it possible to get it here, please? Is it possible too, to get another one like “Music” folder icon for pictures' MB folder? Thank you for any support.
I’ve been away from mediabrowser for a while (OS reinstall), and since I’ve been using your artwork for a couple years, I thought I’d better get off my ass and donate finally. Sorry about that.
I’ve just recently added my ebook collection to mediabrowser and I was wondering if you could help me out with a Pearl EHS?
I was thinking of a bunch of old books something like this http://dl.dropbox.com/u/41260462/books.png
with a couple of bookends something like this http://dl.dropbox.com/u/41260462/bookends.png
I’m not sure if it would look better with the movie clapper to match the rest of the icons I’m using, or just the same type of text just superimposed over the image? What do you think?
PS thanks for all your hard work, it really makes mediabrowser look great.
Hi xzener great work. thumps up
i have a wish can you share the icon V2 template with me. I wound to make my own dragonball icon.
First off I must say thank you for these great EHS Icon designs I get great comments all the time from people that come over and see them in action for the first time they are without a doubt the best I have seen.
I work with music and I am a big collector of rare unreleased videos and live concert footage and I was hoping to make a request for an icon design if possible.
What I was looking for was a Left Facing V2 Icon for “Michael Jackson” being about 100+ hours under Concerts currently but I really would like to give this a section all of it’s own.
If this is a possibility I would be very appreciative.
I’d love to create some of my own icons and share them with the community (you might have seen my request earlier for the .psd for the V2 Icons).
Here is my first icon created using the .psd you (very kindly) shared
Here is my second icon, filled with all my kids favourite characters.
Xzener,thanks for the cions your work is much aprecciated. I’ve used the EHS icons, would you be able to do make a couple saying “Series” and “Kids Series” please? BoxSetsRight and TVSeriesRight are ideal templates. Altenativly, if I can have the PSD I’ll happily modify & repost.
How can these icons be edited in CS4
Hello Xzener, I was wondeirng if you would create a Tutorial icon for mediabrowser, if that was possible?
The TV Series icon in your v2 set shows up with a white background. Can you do one with a transparent background please.
Thank you for a great collection images. I found these awhile ago when i was messing about with mediaportal and have been using them in conjunction with extreme movie manger for my custom made moviecard. Plus they are also good for folder and hdd icons.
What i would like to know is how you do the ones where the clearart image slots between the clipper like the 007.png.
Hope you get back to making more. Donation on the way.
