I just wanted to work out your interpretations on things so I could follow what you are saying to me.
I am 67 and Video Stores in my youth were just that. All they had were Video Tapes in either VHS or Beta format. So the word Video triggers that association with VHS and movie just as theatre triggers movie, so based on what you are saying I don't think we are really on different pages.
As you said, and I agree, DVD, Tape, 35mm film, Hard Disk, web site, etc are nothing more than a 'Storage Media'. This media facilitates storage of files / data (0's & 1's for electronic or digital data), whether this be image emulsion frame by frame, Vobs, MP3, etc. All need a program / device to interpret the data and show what the original creators intended. In the cases we are discussing, this is generally pictures, and in my day moving pictures were called 'movies'. The use of the word video came later with the advent of VHS / Beta (Video Stores) to hold electronic data / pictures. All I was saying was that smaller chunks of movies with the same theme, to me, are movie episodes, whether something like MASH or even Star Wars, Episode 1, etc. Anyway, no need for such discussions here.
I accept your interpretation of "video is the physical object and the movie is the content". I will attempt to apply that thinking when interpreting how to use your program.

Don't you agree that a DVD is a video and calling it a movie is an abuse of language?
You can watch a movie on DVD but DVD doesn't equal movie. You can watch a movie in theater but theather doesn't equal movie even though we say "going to the movies".
The video is the physical object and the movie is the content. Same with a book and a novel, a CD and a song.
DVD is a video format, same as BLU-RAY or VHS. In other words, DVD, BLU-RAY and VHS are all videos, only with different formats.
Don't you rent a DVD from a Video rental shop?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_rental_shop
"A video rental shop/store is a physical retail business that rents home videos"
I loaded two DVD's as owned to test what I should do and to use the program before I put too many titles in. Both did not filter on the MPAA. The other one was Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, barcode 9325336102626
Anyway, MPAA rating does not appear to work for me. I tried selecting 'G' in the filters, but Aladdin won't show. I can't see where that field is in the edit section either to ensure it has a value.
As I said, the MPAA rating is an attribute of the movies, not the videos. It's displayed below the movie title, before the movie genres.
About Aladdin, it's weird that the rating is missing, I think you've found a bug, thank you very much!
