Video  'Accurate' Movie count in library view?
Post: #1
Not sure if this is skin-specific so....

As a twist on a question I have asked before, is it possible to overwrite the movie count information shown at the top of my movie library shown on top left of image below...

...with the count that is made if I view my movie library in file view?

I know that the count indicates the total number of items that are contained in the view that you are currently looking that, but surely it could be possible to 'import' the count from one view to the other?

Any skilled coders out there fancy a go or could point me in the right direction? Or is it impossible?

This is skin specific. If you can tell me what skin this is, I'll move it to the proper thread.

In general the movie sets only count as one movie, try to disable them in settings and then compare.

Would it not be related to the number the skin is using for the display? I've not looked at the skin files, but could it be that one could show the total library count instead of the total view count?

Possible but why would you want that?

That would also mean that if you had a smartplaylists it would also show the total amount of movies instead of only the ones in that smartplaylist.

That makes sense. I guess the issue here really is as sho mentioned, it treats sets as 1 item.

It show the number of items in the list. Not the underlaying 'menus' (which are in this case movie sets).

So the question rises would you want the current visible items or all of them? Think this would require some code change or a new skin ListItem

I have no clue how the code works, but I would think a new skin ListItem. Then the skin could show both numbers. The number in your list and the total number of items in the library. Maybe that can be done already. I have no clue.

Total number in library is possible but not usefull in smartplaylist

Feature request trac ticket would be an option for it

It's just the total number of movies in your library.
