Movies still ugly stepchild of tracks

Post by dtsig » Mon Mar 06, 2017 10:28 pm

Just brought in my normal db with movies and it seems that still *movies* use columns for tracks in their display.
There are 3 list views .. Grid view, Simplified list (with 3 columns ... unchangable) and list filters.

In grid view they are in who knows what order (no order I can determine). And there is no column to sort them

in Simplified List there are a total of 5 columns which seem to not be able changed. Title, Artist, Album, Rating and Length. The default display, like the Grid View, is in some odd sort. though the sort order can be changed. I want to have the columns I want with this view.

At least with List View you can define the columns you want. Space is taken with the genre, artist and album grids ... album ... really what good is that with movies?

Right, while one of the main improvements of MM5 should be a better UI, Movies haven't got pretty much any attention yet, particularly due to a lot of work needed for other parts of MM5. Thanks for bringing the topic, we'll definitely improve this soon. Also feel free to post any suggestions you might have...
