You mentioned that there would be no "info" view with information that appears on hover. If you look at the skin mod I sent you, I actually really like the way the "list" view turned out. I think it is a nice compromise where the slide in information does not "overpower" the screen. You could do something like that with a toggle in the settings menu to turn it off for users who only want the name of the movie and no info.
I think it would actually look really good on the third image down on http://www.aeonproject.com/gallery.html the image with casino royale as the top poster. The background is already opaque so the text would standout. The list could fade out and the info could slide/fade in. You have a lot of realestate to work with in that box that frames the list. That way you would be able to fit a nice bit of plot summary and maybe a few goodies like the Audio and Video logos. Just a thought.

It's an indiscriminate file manager which has its advantages next to the virtual, volatile library views, but also disadvantages in that a skinner can only do so much with the contents. So if you approach Aeon expecting Videos to be anything more than a basic set of four views with no real awareness of TV Shows, Movies, etc, then you're in for disappointment.
That's kind of what I was getting at. For me, it is a way to see the videos that are not part of my Movies/TV Shows libraries.

I'll happily entertain any suggestions after March, but I'll be more than busy enough making a stable foundation before then. I'll redo this forum with all the relevant threads for features, bugs, etc, so be sure to remind me in there when the time comes.

jayhawk785 Wrote:I would think Movies is related more to the library view. Videos I use for things I dont allow into the library database.
One of the reasons for my questions is that i'm usually browsing for a movie to watch not knowing what i want to see. Under movies you have to select a genre, under videos you can display all.
Hawk as you stated i do see that i can see my family videos or anyother type taht i've added.
So what i'm hoping to do is under movies and the genre have an option for "all" currently i've only got 150 HD movies so isn't too bad yet.

There is an option for "title" which will show you all the movies in your library.

must have missed it will take a look after work. Thanks

library movies is alot better then just regular videos .. in addition to browsing all or by genre .. i most often use Recently Added Movies (and tv shows obviously also)
- jayhawk785 - 2009-02-27 15:36
Well, I think, as djh_ mentioned, it's primary intent is to be used in library mode--thats what skinners "pretty up" --without library mode, it's just a fancy file browser.
I use the videos section to refresh movie information/tv info that never makes it into the library for whatever reason. It's also handy for xvids that you don't want to catalogue with HD content. (i use library for mkv movies and tv only).
Can we get a countdown running? T-MINUS 4 DAYS

so i tried last night to find the title section of the genre in movies. Was unable to find this. is there a setting or option that needs to be selected?
- minimalko - 2009-02-27 16:23
