    Hi,

    I intend on ripping all my DVDs at some point, and it looks likely that Moving Pictures will be used as the GUI.

    How do you suppose Bonus DVD Disks would be handled? Is this already planned?

    Personally I would not want something like:

    Monsters Inc DVD 1
    Monsters Inc DVD 2
    Monsters Inc DVD Bonus Disk

    in my list.


    I was thinking possibly just one entry, but a button or menu (or some GUI control) that notifies you that there are additional disks, and lets you play them.

    Hope thats clear! Basically - by default - one DVD listing, selecting it plays the item. But a button or option to play bonus disks.

    I should probably make a mockup - but i'm at work.

    That's actually somethng we have not talked about but it's a good point. Maybe some kind of additional options or listings in the details view would be appropriate. This will be a little ways off, but I have created an issue on the tracker for this so that the idea does not get lost.

    I think i'd agree - a button on the details screen or a list to chose from (if there are more than one bonus disk).

    Sounds sensible to me, as you are cataloging titles not disks :)
