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

 Third version of the patch, fixes a segfault caused when calling up the
 context menu with a directory as the active object.  Removes debug
 message, simplifies a line or two.

 Please keep discussion and suggestions on the -dev list where they belong.
 Because I am implementing a patch for a functionality I wanted, I am
 implementing it for the use case that works best for me.  I too can
 envisage exciting possibilities for this functionality, but I do not care
 to implement what I see as superfluous database use at this early stage.
 Yes, using the video widget that is coming from Mythtv-vid presents
 exciting possibilities.  Yes, a different (seperate) functionality
 leveraging this one that randomizes "x" number of trailers before a film
 would be a fun option (and here I could see a DB value for "x" to set the
 number of trailers to play before a film).  But it is premature to talk of
 using widgets that don't exist in trunk, and I am doing this for my own
 enjoyment-- and will continue to do so in a way that is fun (and works)
 for me.

 Thanks, please try it out and I'll happily chat about it on the list.
