Looks sweet!  Thank you for keeping the aspect ratio of the videos/art.   To me that is what makes or breaks a theme.  It's a little thing but goes a long way!

Will this work with the PI or in verticle mode?

Hi, a little update here.
For the last week I was distracted by some small bugs in AM which came up while coding that theme.
Why is it always happening to me :P

First was AM freezes when resuming from sleep, then weird behaviour of the video_playing parameter, and now some unusual periodical (every 15s) activity on the GPU. 1st and 2nd are fixed. Now I'm going through the AM sources trying to make some sense out of it ( no offense Andrew, just my knowledge shortages ) and see if I can figure out what is causing this unusual GPU activity.

I know some of you would like to use my blur module, so before releasing I need to make sure it doesn't suck to much juices out of the GPU.
