Hi all, is it possible to sort Moving Pictures by genre?

Basically i want to edit the genre of all my films into kids, hd and dvd then be able to choose a genre in MP.

Possible?? :D

The next release will have sorting implemented. But sorting by genre does not quite make sense. Most movies are assigned to multiple genres so there is really no way to pick which is the "right" genre to sort by. What I think you are looking for is filtering by genre, but that unfortunately will not be available until the version after next (0.8). Which I would guess is a month or two a way?

I plan to edit the genres into, HD, DVD & kids so it will be easier to navigate. Hopefully that will work !

What you are describing is filtering which will, again, be included in 0.8.

Would you click Sort title: Back to the future? Of course not that doesn't make sense. So what would you expect to happen when you click sort ganre: action? List only movies in the action genre? Not a bad suggestion, but, again, filtering, not sorting.

I was not previously aware of the "Drive Free Space" plugin, and it is not easy to find. (There really ought to be an easier way of finding plugins.)

OK, I found a way to make it work. It seems like MP-TV-series Configuration (and Moving Pictures Configuration) starts as Administrator, and the Administrator do not have yet logged in on the UNC \\192.168.222.247\Public even if the normal user on the PC have done it. So to fix it on the Win 11 HTPC: Created a shortcut to...
