Comment(by robert.mcnamara at gmail.com):

 New and hopefully final version of the trailer patch.  It patch does the

 *Adds a seventh page to Video Settings->General including the settings:
   - Trailer Directory
   - Enable Random Trailers
   - Number of trailers to play

 *If Enable Random Trailers is on, the context menu for each video gets a
 new button called "Watch With Trailers."  Selecting this will play the
 user-selected number of trailers before the movie begins.  This is very
 very cool looking and works smoothly.

 *A new field is added to the Edit Metadata screen allowing for each movie
 to have its own trailer associated with it.  Associating a single trailer
 with a movie adds the context button "Play Trailer" which allows one to
 play the trailer for a specific movie.

 *Updates database schema appropriately.

 I hope that someone can look at this soon with an eye to committing it.  I
 can't think how I can take this any further at the moment, and I think the
 code is fairly clean.  It also works very well and is a feature I think
 people would enjoy.
