are there any plans to port moving pictures to MP2?

I also did not like this, but this is the past. Present is, you can choose which view will be presented at first enter of Movies section. You only need to change the view once and MP2 remembers this until you change it again. So on second enter (could be the same session or a later one including a reboot of client) you will have the view you like. In future you will be able to add your own views and filters, to group movies by collection (e.g. all "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies together)...If people are forced to look at a bunch of genre folders as their initial view of their movies,
Maybe this is sometimes true for MP1 (e.G. the MyPictures plugin is ugly as hell but stays nearly the same since the very first beginning of MP 10 years ago, but did you had a look at MyVideos Plugin in MP1 lately?) but it's definitely not the truth regarding MP2. This mainly is due to the easy way one can change core parts of MP2 without touching anything else. If you want to change something in MP1 core you need to take care about anything...but I think we all know that the changes will be very slight and mostly bug fixes from here on in
Ah, this wasn't clear and likely won't be to most new users. Someone in another thread explained how to change this and now I can see my movies. I'd suggest that the initial view for new users be set to something visually appealing and relevant, and not a listing of genre folders.Hi.

Yes, but it took years for MyVideos to be updated. I don't think users are going to patiently put up with an inferior htpc app for years in the hopes that eventually, someone might update it to something that's already been available for years in xbmc, MP1, and future competing apps...Maybe this is sometimes true for MP1 (e.G. the MyPictures plugin is ugly as hell but stays nearly the same since the very first beginning of MP 10 years ago, but did you had a look at MyVideos Plugin in MP1 lately?)but I think we all know that the changes will be very slight and mostly bug fixes from here on in
That's an ideal world for developers but not something most end users are willing to do. MP2 developers need to reach out to users and find ways to solicit feedback so that the final product appeals to the user, not to the logical introspection of the developers. And you can't ask users to speak your language, either.If you want MP2 the way you like it, feel free to participate. Install latest MP2 Alpha, use it as often as possible, create proper bug reports and exact feature requests. So the devs can see what's need to be done...
I have been doing considerable testing of Movie, Series, Video scans and as it stands today, it does not take into consideration the Users directories or the fact they Choose Movies or Series.In future you will be able to add your own views and filters, to group movies by collection (e.g. all "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies together)...
I'm confused by what you've written. Do you have your movies in a completely different directory than your TV shows, for example:Scanning (Movies, Series, Videos): Sorry but this is a thorn in my side. After doing a scan for Series, the system ignores the fact that I have Shared folders dedicated to different types.
after the Series scan was done, everything except The Bill Engcall Show was listed in Series (TV Shows are a Series, right?).
After reading the log file and seeing it was scanned, I discovered The Bill Engvall Show was in Videos listed under Genre:Empty and under Genre Documentary (Really?) along with other Genre.
