I've just installed mediaportal and i have to say; amazing!
I've got a couple of issues, the most important one is that I would like to present two different video librarys at two different places in mediaportal.
I would like to present movies for us adults in one place and childrens movies another place. Trying to make it as easy as possible for my wife....
I've got moving picures up and running and presenting my mvies. Should I use another plugin for the childrens movies, and in that case which one?

    I use the built-in "My videos" for cartoons etc, as they are usually harder to map. The thumb-generator gives nice pictures (settings in config) so it it easy for kids to know what movies are listed. (Although good file-naming might be a good idea, if you are not mapping the movies).
