    Purpose

    Integrate a VUMeter display on Music Now Playing

    Draw graphic with the different states of the VU. Name them VU1.png - VU15.png and store them in the Media\Animation\VU folder of your skin

    NOTE: This is only working with BASS Player selected as your Music Player

    Description of change

    insert on the beginning of the file. (e.g. after the <allowoverlay>)

    MyMusicPlayingNow.xml:

    <vumeter>yes</vumeter>

    This enables vumeter support. If your Playing Now screen, does NOT contain a VUMeter, set the parameter to "no", then we won't do unnecessary retrieval of the peak level.

    Then insert your controls for the VUMeter. you need a control for the Left Level and Right Level:

    <control>
          <type>image</type>
          <id>999</id>
          <posX>90</posX>
          <posY>21</posY>
          <width>107</width>
          <height>107</height>
          <texture>#VUMeterL</texture>
          <visible>Player.HasAudio + Player.playing</visible>
        </control>
        <control>
          <type>image</type>
          <id>998</id>
          <posX>237</posX>
          <posY>21</posY>
          <width>107</width>
          <height>107</height>
          <texture>#VUMeterR</texture>
          <visible>Player.HasAudio + Player.playing</visible>
        </control>

    #VUMeterL and #VUMeterR will be replaced with the name of the gfx corresponding to the Level retrieved.
