Filter by IDMB rating / by PG-13,R,NC-17 and so on. FFDshow / Halli / AC3Filter / PowerDVD support.

Instead of having an 'Option to omit "The" in movie sorting and displaying, can you add another column that is the "Sort Title", this way the Title can still be used for display purposes, but the list could be sorted in a more meaningul fashion.

Add a Category option to allow for groupings by things other than genre, MPAA rating, personal rating (stars), etc. For example: 007 (Bond Movies), The Duke (John Wayne Movies) know this is an actor too?, Star Trek, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, etc.

Comment by project member, Jun 4, 2008

At some point we will add the ability to group films by a user generated category (and optionally show only the one item on the menu). So that Indiana Jones could be 1 menu item with each title inside that.

Comment by, Jun 4, 2008

add - User can add notes on movie page. +1 on the personal rating (stars) idea.

Really, really need to add at least one level of "Category" grouping to the database. Right now I'm looking at a few hundred videos and scrolling through all of them is a pain!!! By Categories I mean, some form of grouping for the titles. Even if we don't use it right away I think we should hammer out the schema implications.

Here is an example of how I have my videos organized on my hard drive:

  • OML
    • Movies
      • General (Uncategorized)
      • 007
      • John Wayne
      • Jerry Lewis
      • Terminator
      • Star Trek
      • Star Wars
      • Harry Potter
    • TVSeries
      • General (Uncategorized)
      • Star Trek
      • Firefly

Triple Tap: needs to be available for actors, or at least we really need a different display concept.

Comment by, Jul 31, 2008

There is a bug when you change the "drive letter" for Daemon Tools mouting.

The new drive letter, which you change and then press "Save settings" are not updated internally, and the OML still complaints that it cannot find the (old) drive letter.

If you exit OML, and restart again, it works.

Stream AVI's to an extender like Mymovies

Comment by, Sep 18, 2008

Having more then one Genre, for each movie. Example. From dusk till dawn. I have Horror/Action/. when selecting in genre i have the option of Horror only for the movie.

Star rating would be nice

Relating movies to make a proper trilogy. Example Raiders of the lost ark / Temple of Doome/ or Dr.NO/You can only live twice etc... locat it in the movies discription.

Recommendation/Simular Movies in the movie discription.

Will m4v files be supported?

Comment by, Oct 15, 2008

Ability to recognize and play an MT2S file format.

Comment by, Nov 22, 2008

Is there any chance that the new DB Editor could get back one of the features of the old DB Editor? With the old one, when you imported movies or scanned a folder, any new movies would appear at the bottom of the movie list. Having this happen this way actually made it easier to know what movies had been added. I just did this on the new one, and 6 movies were found. I needed to manually scroll through all the titles to find the newly added movies.

As the collection gets ever increasingly bigger, and I stop using MyMovies? and rely solely on DB Editor (which now rocks), this process could become time consuming and probably annoying.
