    I have to say, really fantastic plugin and particularly amazing update. It brought me so much joy to see the GUI maturing like this; awesome. Really, really nice work.:D

    Is there a way to have the date created as the sorting order ?

    I would prefer my new movies to be up the top.

    Also... It would appear that they are not in the correct order when selecting 'Date added' with the new version.

    I am just tryign to thing of a way I can show you and make you reproduce what I am experiencing fforde.

    Ideas how I can do it ?

    It looks like about the first page worth is the correct order (newest added up the top) but then as it goes down, its starts listing it by a mix of alphebetical & another unknown random order.

    Sorting by "date added" literally lists the movies in the order they were added to Moving Pictures. It does not necessarily look at any file attributes. So if you just started using Moving Pictures last week and you have only added two movies since then, those two movies would be listed first, and the rest would be listed in the order they happened to be imported by the Importer.

    Maybe we could implement an enhancement to pull the "date added" field from the file creation date if there is enough demand I suppose. For me personally though, date added is only relevant for unwatched movies which generally only goes back a few weeks to a month at most. So I am not sure I see the long term benefit of importing file attributes like this.

    If anyone disagrees with me, please, by all means, speak up :p That is the point of the forums. If there is a demand for something like this we will implement it. I am just trying to determine cost vs. benefit.

    Cannot play ISOs - Daemon Tools

    One thing I've encountered, and it was more of a user error...

    Previously Moving Pictures was tolerant of the fact that I had set MP's Daemon Tools option to use Drive "R", while in Daemon Tools itself I had set "Use first available drive".

    0.7 Produced an error (which specifically directed me to check Daemon settings:rolleyes:)
    The error was fixed by setting Daemon Tools to use drive "R" as well.


    Just in case anyone else has the same issue.


    Cheers

    I am not sure if it is related to this release, but it is only happening since this release... but, it is not remembering my view settings.

    It keeps resetting the view back to small icons when list is my preferred method, with the descending date added mode :confused:

    Thx for the update!

    Just 1 question:
    It seems the movie info is retrieved from imdb.com by default. In the previous version I was able to set moving pictures to retrieve the movie info from moviemeter.nl, this setting seems to be removed or hidden?

    Once imported it is possible to retrieve info from a different movie info database but to do this for all movies is........not so funny.

    I would love to see "Date Created" added i used to use it alot when running meedio . it is very handy as it is like adding the latest movie but if you have to do a re-install etc you will get the same order back !
