This tutorial will show how to remove ratings from the video library views List/Big list/Fanart/Media info/Media info 2 and from TV/Movie information. This is achieved by editing ViewsFileMode.xml, ViewsVideoLibrary.xml and DialogVideoInfo.xml.

1 Remove ratings from video libray views

These mods will not just remove ratings. They will also remove episode count (when browsing shows), play count, MPAA rating and date from the library view you've edited (when selecting the corresponding sort). That's not that big of a problem if you e.g. only use the List view for browsing movies/episodes and you don't use its other sorts. These mods don't break the actual sorting, they just remove the text. They also don't affect the File views (Video->Files).
The mod for Fanart view is different and it only removes the ratings, nothing else.
