#1569: mythvideo grab-bag 'o crunchy goodness
 Reporter:  gnassas at mac.com  |       Owner:  ijr 
     Type:  patch            |      Status:  new 
 Priority:  minor            |   Milestone:  0.20
Component:  mythvideo        |     Version:  0.19
 Severity:  medium           |  
 I have over 1,000 files in mythvideo which is a lot for my puny epia
 and xbox machines so I decided do do something about speeding up the
 load time. Once I started hacking I got carried away...

 this patch contains the following fixes

 1: lazy loading for Genres and Countries

    cuts my gallery entry time by half when filebrowsing is active
    and even more when I'm pulling the list of videos from the

 2: folder display for non-browsing gallery view

    it looks like the original author intended this but never got it
    working. Also, in the menu popup, I added a flat view option but
    it's not persistent. Should it be? Personally, I hate flatview

 3: ability to order videos by videometadata.intid

    essentially your most recently added videos bubble up to the top
    of the list. Handy for when you have > 1,000 videos and you want
    to edit the metadata of your newest dvd rips without hunting
    through the whole collection

    this obviates the need for #679 which is hereby withdrawn

 4: option to sort folders before or within videos

    somebody asked for this on -users and it was easy to do

 5: allow multiple videos to have the same title

    not an issue for me but recently somebody on -users or -dev
    mentioned how two videos with the same name will stomp over each
    other during sorting and I happened to be in the neighbourhood

 6: VideoList::addFileNode

    couldn't readily see wtf it was doing so it got a friendly

 7: handle uft8 characters in file and directory names

    filenames with non-latin characters were getting into the
    database uninterpreted. This caused videomanager to prattle on
    about "file ZZZ is missing, remove it?" even though the video
    wasn't really missing

    btw, mythgallery appears to have a similar issue

 I'm working from a revision just before the .19 release so this
 patch might apply cleanly to -fixes for the cautious souls among us
