This is not a request to create a NEW feature, but to RENEW an old feature now gone in new versions.

I number all my movie disks and keep them out of their cases in sleeves in a hanging file case. I keep a record of the numbers in MN. I use the IMDB number, which used to DL with the movie information but for some reason does not anymore. Now I have to click the IMDB link and copy it from that website (its in the URL for the page). Real pain, especially since I know you removed the feature. :x

PLEASE, fix the DL utility such that the IMDB movie number DLs again with the rest of the movie information.

Adding my support for better integration / exportability to XBMC. I see the support is low in your table (not sure when you made it) but in the last year there are over 28,000 views in a thread about this feature (which sadly seems now not to function in anything but versions below 5.5.

I would suggest that the reason for the low interest in XBMC is general lack of awareness about it and the relative difficulty exporting from MN and importing to XBMC. I know I had a hard time finding info about it. For convenience, here is a link to the site: http://xbmc.org/about/

I would say a save button or something similar. I know u can back up but if a save function was there aswell that would help and then you can fall back on the backup if u need to.

I have over 2000 DVDs, and scan the sleeves for 'poster' and 'cover' use (and for my own use)..but sometimes I would like to share the info the program has downloaded about a movie.
Although I use the program in full screen size, the right hand panel often require scrolling to see everything, especially if the 'about' info is long.
Could it be possible to 'capture' the right hand side as an image...I know that Windows has the 'snipping tool', or you could take a 'snapshot' of the screen and edit...but if the right hand pane needs to be scrolled, neither of these functions will do the job. I've looked at various utilities that capture a scrolling window - but none really succeed...perhaps an option to save the left hand panel could also be incorporated..so if you want to share the movies you have with a particular actor...you can capture that side as well..
Although I use JPG for the various images I scan, I would prefer PNG..which I don't use for the program, as it would stress out the memory, and take some time to load.

Just an idea :
What about Printing the page using a pdf virtual printer like 'Pdf Creator' ?...

I have tried this - and there are a few basic problems..one being that it will only print to a present page size - so some (and sometimes only one line) will be printed on the second page...I find printing (as opposed to saving as image) create a smaller (screen size) image - although I think I have found a free program, that captures a scrolling page, which is OK for the movie info...but it is limited if a lot of sleeves are on show, for example movies in the French language - I have 120 DVDs in that language - so have to split the page into two, because the program can't handle it.

How about the ability to play the trailers directly from the program, instead of it opening a browser window. Also, the trailer view is so small. Why not use all that extra space, in the trailer tab, for a normal size you tube video, and allow it to play directly from the program? Movie Collector does this, and that part is much better than Movienizer.

how about seperate pages for series or maybe even studios like actors and movies have? we definitely need one for series other than showing just the movies links.
