Ceci would definitely be une pipe - if you can readily code that it, for sure do it - no sense being the best if you can't maintain the position :-)

The last state of my ideas => the tool menu would have a submenu with all the functions related to the video files: scanning, checking, moving, deleting.

I like that idea. :D From what I understand I would see a list of directories with missing movies and have the option to remove the missing ones form any of those locations. Am I understanding you correctly? :worried:

This makes a tremendous amount of sense. It will even enable features like Ctrl+L to come from out of hiding. I think though that if this becomes the case then It would be imperative that you make some sort of quick alternate way to start a video file scan. It would be nice to be able to use scan videos as fast as add physical video, and add single file.

I think there would be a function to detect the files that are missing. That function would generate a list of missing files in the form of a text that you could easily copy.

And there would be another function to remove a list of files. Obviously, that list could come from the function above, after you have edited it as necessary. This function would accept wildcards to allow removing all the files from a directory (directory\*.*), or only a certain type of files, for example the avi files (directory\*.avi).

Currently, if you want to scan again all your video files, you have to start over by deleting your coollection file, and by doing so, you lose all the other informations (ratings, etc...). Thanks to this new feature, with a few lines you could remove all the video file associations, and only the video file associations.

Absolutely ! That, and also the fact that you can associate a file with the "play" icon (it's far from obvious, and many users miss that feature). The first submenu would be "automatic scan", and the second submenu would be "manual association". If you select "manual association", a message would teach you how to use the play icon to associate a file to the current movie.

I'm not sure that I understand you. The fast way to add a single file is clicking the "play" icon, isn't it ?.

I think so :excited:

Yes. I wish there was also a way to start a filesystem scan that easily and quickly. :(

Sorry, I don't have a better idea. The menu seems to be the more logical place for this feature.
