    Hello,

    This plugin is good! Very reliable and working a treat...however I do have an issue:

    1) When open MP, select 'moving pictures' menu I have a list of movies. If I try to use the pushbutton letters on my TV REMOTE...ie to find all movies beginning with 'R' this doesn't work? I have a standard MCE remote which works fine on both recorded TV and MP TV series plugin searches?

    2) I want to download all my movie trailers locally and store them within the same folder as the main movie ie C:\movies\armageddon\trailers\armageddon trailer.flv ...or similar and have a trailers menu available within MP to watch. Is this possible? Or can I like IMDb trailers to my local movie files?



    Thanks

    There is a new Trailers plugin which will compliment most of the movie plugins for MediaPortal including MovingPictures: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...ictures-my-films-my-videos-2013-11-08.122644/

    This will allow you to launch the local stored trailer from MovingPictures details screen, it requires skin support which im sure will roll out into future releases of skins.

    Note: because you have your trailers inside the movingpics import paths its good to disable them from being imported from MovingPictures advancedsettings, I think by default it filters out samples but you could add 'sample|trailer' so it doesnt get picked up by movpics.

    Just to complete this thread...the above advice is correct and works well.

    1) download trailers plugin and setup config.
    2) modify theme using the attached files mentioned in thread.
    3) re boot MP and job done!
