 > Second perhaps trailers should be in a separate directory and perhaps
 identified by a videometadata database field.

 Keeping it in the metadata sounds good. As long as it enables us to have
 many trailers per movie.
 A nice feature would be "watch randomized list of all trailers" where upon
 seeing a movie you like you just hit play and the movie starts. (aka lazy
 sunday afternoon mode)

 > I tend to disagree with the need for yet another configuration option/DB
 entry, though.

 I understood that there should be some metadatafield stating "this movie
 is a trailer for movie xyz". Similar to the "play movie xyz after this one
 has finished" for linking parts together.
 Lets you "show just movies, no trailers for selection" or "play all
 trailers for a given movie if a users idles on the movie details page".
