    I have a bunch of shorts (ala Pixar, drive-in theater clips, Bugs Bunny clips, etc).

    I would love to be able to have one or two movie trailers, then a random short from my local drive all play automatically each time I played a movie from My Videos.

    I envision the movie trailers would be similar movie rating (i.e., if the movie I am playing is a PG, the trailers would be at least PG appropriate).

    I have been looking at using VLC and the playlist (think Zoomplayer has a playlist option).

    Is this even an option or a possibility?

    Along the lines of your idea, I think it would be great if the trailer would play as soon as you highlight one of the movies. It could replace the poster when a trailer is available, maybe in Moving Pictures or My Films.

    I've also been thinking it would be nice to have one of the dolby/THX trailers running before you start the film, based on the sound format on the movie.

    Any update on this??

    I really would love to have a trailer to play before a movie starts.

    Perfect to impress friends before a movie starts, and great for me to check that all sounds/speakers work like them should.


    So, any addon that will make this possible?
