If you don’t know what XBMC is, well, go .  XBMC is a media dream, it plays everything, gets tons of data off the internet to make your movies, music, videos, shows, etc easy to find, sort, play, you name it.  I love it!  One thing I thought was missing was a good music player that would show band information, and pictures of the band/singer.  The really cool thing about XBMC is that not only is it open source, but supports Python Scripting!

I am currently finishing up a rather simple script that simply pulls the information from Last.fm, sorts it out, then puts it on the screen for the song that is currently playing.  It will slideshow through all the pictures found, and cycle through the biography of the artist as well.  It will also allow simple controls, play/pause, previous/next, etc.  I still have some cleaning up to do, but hope to release it later this week for testing.  Since it is a script, it will be released open source, and I hope someone with better Python skills than me will clean it up!

    This looks nice, is there any way to include this in a skin?
