How Do I Find My Music?
Kodi sorts the Music Library by different categories called Nodes. Each Node has a visual display associated with it which is called a View. You can select a Node at least a few different ways. First, the Music Window (Window ID 10502) has a partial list of Nodes. Another way is from the Music Submenu on the Main Menu. I think the Artist, Albums, and Songs Nodes are default selections. More Nodes can be added to the Main Menu.

In this thread I’ll show some screenshots of a few standard Node Views that I use to navigate and select music. Each View has a Side Blade Menu which allows for customization of that particular view. (I’ll talk about Custom Nodes in another Mini Topic)


Versions
I’m using Leia 18.6, LibreELEC, and Aeon Nox: Silvo 7.0.9…

Open Case Mod
Option for the Showcase setting. The cd case/album cover opens. Then the disc/record appears on the right and moves from right to left while spinning. Lands in the case, then the case closes. Pretty cool :LB
