Hello. I must say I love this plugin. I think it is a must have in mediaportal. I know the file copy functionality has been requested at nausea but am wondering if it is feasible to adapt the download video functionality from the Online Videos plugin?

In Online Videos when you download a video you get an indicator at the top of the page that you have a file downloading and you can see the percentage of the file download when you go to the downloaded videos section of the plugin. While the file is downloading you can download or view other videos and even go to other areas in mediaportal while this is happening in the background.

I know it's not a perfect solution (like having a status bar/overlay thingy) and I'm not sure if it's possible to implement but I think it would win a lot of fans.

Again, love this plugin.

Yesterday I copied about 16 GB from my hard disk to a USB Stick with FileExplorer. Because copying took a Little bit time and my htpc settings are "hibernate after 3 minutes" the htpc went down although it was still copying. I had expected that the htpc didn't go down because FileExplorer was still working!
