udpate query.pas geared for TV use
I've been using Movienizer for a few months now and agree with a lot of people that it's one of the best movie organizers around. I use Movienizer to keep track of my Movies that I backup on my NAS drive. I tend to add and update movies on my PC but watch movies through my TV connected to a separate computer. I think Movienizer's interface is great when you are at your PC with a mouse but on a TV, with a wireless keyboard and embedded track ball, the interface is cumbersome, well at least to me. So I create a modified query.pas file to use on my TV's computer that provides a simpler interface that is easy to use without having to have great mouse control.
The mods to the query.pas file, focuses on the main center panel and expects the left side panel to be hidden (and also the toolbars). A fullscreen startup option would be great enhancement
From the home page, it provides navigation to movies based on starting letter, genre, and last 8 new additions. The movie listings show larger front-cover images and is organized to show 8 movies across (see pics).
The movie details have larger images and does not popup dialog box to show enlarged images. It provides play and home buttons on the webpage instead of having to go to the toolbar (I could not get the backward and forward buttons to work). Also, I've added the location of the movie on the movie detail page so that it is easy to see where the movie resides.
For TV series, I was able to link my episodes to the movie file (this requires some file naming convention) instead of having to open windows explorer to start each episode.
If you find this might be useful for you, then follow the setup steps below:
1) copy over the new query.pas (English only).
2) create a sub directory in the 'Covers' folder called 'custom' and copy the two icons there.
