Maybe look into something like http://code.google.com/p/moving-pictures/ then.
Agreed! Get Moving Pictures for movies, MP is just not the same without it.
But still, it would be nice to be able to have all the movies in one folder. I manage a couple of WD TV media Players as well as my HTPC with MediaPortal, and these works best if I put all movies in one folder. Else I have to first open the folder, and then play the movie file, and it's just a lot of hazzle to setup as well.
All I'm saying is that the option would be nice, unless it somehow influences a lot of code that has to be remade.
