Add a feature request for that too! I think I mentioned before that originally MyFilms only played your movies from Details window so it was a non-issue. I requested playback from the Main window and Guzzi added that in v 6.0 but I never thought about adding an option to match the disc inserted!I still prefer the way that MovingPictures jumps to the correct movie entry when I insert my disc, very cool!
Issue 19: Enable Play button - added in 2011I cant see the one you started though so will start that as well )
I don't think that is disrespectful at all, MovingPictures is designed for ease of use and uses SQLite like all MP databases - which are intended to make data available within MP. The whole point of MyFilms is quite opposite - it starts with the standalone database, which allows you the power and control, then integrates that into MP. Both are great, depending on your needs. But I can never get anyone to understand that! So it made me really happy that you grasped that right away.boy is it way more powerful to have a standalone database as opposed to a plugin with a "self contained" database. No disrespect to MovingPictures
Yeah if you have a lot of home movies it is really fun to create a database of them - adding descriptions, technical details, 'actors' (LOL), director etc. Then create fanart and covers from the movie (there is an option to 'Create movie thumb' from the movie in AMC Updater > Database Fields > Cover Handling. It takes some time at first to create a new database, though you can use AMC Updater > Update movies to globally add a lot of data (including where you physically stored them if they are not on your HDD). But once you have it worked out a lot of the work is done when you import to your Home Movies database. Then when your friends come over you look like a professional filmmaker And it's great to be able to find all the movies that person 'starred' in with a couple clicks of your remote . Of course your family might complain about you subjecting them to hours of home movies!Yeah it gives me total control which is what Ive always wanted. Loving the way you can switch different configs too which is great for multiple databases, really cool!
