There are multiple ways to sort movies in Library mode, I would like it if it would be possible to add a SD/HD/720/1080 filter so it narrows done the movies I have. The metadata should already be there I assume.

Thanks for all the hard work that so many of you have put into this project!!!

Use a smartplaylist.

Yes, that is an option but not a very elegant solution.
Would it be all that difficult to add the few lines of code to the left slideout menu to sort by SD/HD?
To be clear, I am not looking for another link to add to the home menu or it's sub-menus.

Heck tell me how and where to access the code and I'll do it myself..................
or is it possible to add it in, as described above, to a custom skin

Reason for the [seconded] request: I'm currently in the process of stripping one of the skins down to the bare minimum.
I would very much like to have this as an option because navigating to a smartplaylist is not exactly easy for a novice user [especially when using the current default skin].

I believe some skins already have such options.

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Add-on:YouTube]] = Add-on:YouTube, [[Adding videos to the library]] = Adding videos to the library, [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

In latest master you can do all that and more just by adding some files - the library layout is completely customisable.

Grab a nightly build and check out Custom Video Nodes

Installed the latest [20120701-bd7bc1c].
Tried to go to this location: /userdata/Database/video/movies/
But when I get to the Database folder, the only sub-folder is CDDB.

What am I missing?

On Win 7 and ,yes, I can see all hidden and system folders.
