As of Media Browser 2.2.2 (codename Thunderblade) there is built in support for Local Trailers.
This has been enabled for the default theme, but all the respective theme builders will have to enable it as well.
The implementation is quite simple:
- If we detect a folder named “Trailers” (NOT case sensitive) with your movie we will treat all the videos in there as trailers.
So for example say you have the file structure:
D:\Movies\Rocky\rocky.avi D:\Movies\Rocky\trailers\sfdsadf.avi D:\Movies\Rocky\trailers\rocky-tdfr2.mkv D:\Movies\Rocky\trailers\rocky-3.mov
Media Browser will treat the files
rocky-3.mov as movie trailers. They will only be playable from the new “Play Trailers” button which appears on your movie details page (each theme may have slightly differing implementations)
- Shortcuts to trailers are supported.
- If for whatever reason you need to disable this there is a new config setting called “EnableLocalTrailerSupport” – this setting will not be available in the UI.
- If more than 1 trailer exists, they will be played in alphabetical/sorted order. ( we create a playlist for them and play the playlist. This will happen for trailers even if you have playlists disabled )
- Movie trailers can be of mixed video types among the ones recognized by MediaBrowser
- as of Media Browser 2.2.2 (codename Thunderblade) the xml reference to the trailer does not work anymore.
Showing all local trailers in a single view
The Media Browser Trailers plugin has an option to add a “My Trailers” EHS/initial screen item. This collection will contain all the locally stored trailers including metadata and fanart. You can watch the trailers as if they were ordinary movies.
Instructions on how to configure this can be found here.
