    Play the trailer for selected movie.

    This is a feature i think would really top this plugin off. I have a lot of movies now and most of the time i cant remember what they are about. im just getting sick of going to and from youtube playin this trailer and that trailer. So whether they be stored locally or streamed (both preferably, in case the net is down, heaven forbid:eek:) :D:D

    This is exactly what I was looking for today. Originally I thought that all the "my trailers" plug-ins provided this capability, but apparently they are used to catalog and watch trailers, similar to the way moving pictures catalogs your movie collection. Is that something that people do... just watch trailers on their own for entertainment??? Although the trailers are *better* than a lot of their respective movies, I couldn't imagine just wanting to watch trailers all night ;)

    Yeh stuff watchin trailers all night, although u are right, most of them are so much better than the movies. It would be good though to go into the details section of each movie and have a link or button to watch that respective trailer.:D

    maybe im doing something wrong and this is already included in moving pictures.

    when a movie is not parsed correctly and therefore not approved, it would be nice to still be able to see the file in moving pictures list.

    this way, even without movie info, it would be possible to watch the movie. (maybe put an asterisk or a logo representing "not approved" movie)

    is this happening already with any special configuration?

    also a minifeature that i belief can be just a line or two of code to implement...

    right now moving pictures can check if the filename has the year included to help on the parsing. ive noticed that sometimes downloaded files have 1 or 2 years error in this info. could moving pictures use this feature but to a "year plus minus 2 years" ???

    it will not affect remakes which are very old as year range is way out.

    This is not possible yet. We plan on implementing something like that in the future though. Basically a seperate view for unmatched movies where you can play them or assign them to a movie based on importer results. See this issue for more details. And by the way, if you star the issue there you will receive email updates as the conversation progress or we make progress in implementation. This also effectively places a "vote" for the issue. We use the number of stars on an issue to gauge the level of user interest in a feature.

    We cant control how a scraper script uses year information when searching for a movie, but with the search results we definitely use fuzzy matching logic. The distance between the year of the possible match, and the year in the search criteria is a factor in the auto approval scoring system, so if the year is off by one, if the title is still very close it still could get auto approved.

    great i will star it now.

    i understand your whole new feature u are thinking about, but i think that a provisional "easier solution" could be a configuration option that says "include unapproved movies"

    then movies not correctly parsed will have an entry in the database and appear in the list.

    the showing title could be something like:

    "UNAPPROVED: Stargate.The.Ark.Of.Truth.(2008).avi"
