Hi,
is it planned to implement a genre search in Moving Pictures in the near/medium/far future?

Just to clarify for the OP, the sorting in 0.7 will not be able to sort by genre. For that, you will need Filters. Because each movie has multiple genres, it is not feasible to sort by genre.

This is unacceptable. I personally believe that Moving-Pictures should just know what I want to see on the screen and just play it without any user interaction. While you are working on that functionality, could you please also start working on a MP plugin that shovels off my sidewalk. I had to shovel my sidewalk when I got home from work today, and that was also unacceptable.

Thanks in advance,

I meant a function which is analogue to the one in My Videos: select a genre X and the displayed list shows only the movies which contain the genre X in their genre attributes. Jep, functionally it seems to be a filter. No need to hurry, good things require time. ;)

@LRFalk01: I dont really understand what you want to say... :confused:

This will be available in 0.8, but unfortunately not in the next release (0.7). Thanks for your patience though :p

I think he was being sarcastic. Or maybe facetious? In any case I think he is joking.

    What's the best way to select a different backdrop? Sometimes the first selected backdrop is not great and I'd like to select another. Moving Pictures scales down the high res pictures and shrinks the filesize as well so I can't just go to fanart or themoviedb and get the images without doing some extra work to get the file right...

    You can always try, select any window, turn off the Media Portal, change the ID of the selected one to the desired one (plugin) and check.
